Take   notice    that I,   Bert.   Norris
Sharp, of Orient,   Wash.,   occupation

Commencing at ft post planted on

Thomas Melville Sharp,
July 31st, 1907.
A Rich Property.
That magic word "Cobalt," has failed
to attract the level-headed men of the
Slocan to any great extent, and for this
there is a reason. While strikes of
fabulous wealth have been reported
and millions of dollars worth of rich ore
has been extracted from the surface
cuts around tlie town of Cobalt, it is
but history repeating itself, for were not
millions gouged from the surface of the
Slocan country. But Cobalt is yet in
short clothes. When the big finds are
all in, and tbo money sharks anil stock
manipulators bave departed leaving
behind a trail which will permeate the
oione for years to come, there will remain but a few who will prosecute legitimate mining methods, and upon these
will practically devolve Iho onus of
proving up the country and demonstrating tlie continuity of the valneB at
depth. But what of Cobalt in the
interim ? Turn back the pages of
Slocan history, cf the Coeur d'Alenes,
of the Lardeau and a dozen more, ahd
regretfully one must admit they have
been through tha same baptism of depression. One by one the mining
companies who hud no intention of
pursuing deep mining dropped out of
existence, and in all these sections
there remained but a few with the necessary confidence and ability to prove
ultimately successful. By dogged determination the stability of the Coeur
d'Alenes was established, and its
large cities stand to-day as monuments
to the truism that deep mining pays.
And now comes Slocan's turn. It was
to be. Wherever deep mining has been
carried on success has been achieved,
and now those who stood aloof during
the proving-up process are coming back
to take advantage of the salutary lesson.
In the proving-up process local enterprise lias been a prominent factor. We
can cite dozens of instances where local
syndicates have furnished capital and
muscle for some expensive tunneling to
cut the veins at depth and with great
profit eventually to themselves. The
lati-st venture to be recorded is the
banding of a syndicate of local men who
are about to exploit the Goodeuough
group, a property which holds the enviable reputation of having had shipped
from it the richest carload of ore which
has left the Silvery Slocan. The syndicate about to assume control are all
local mining men, with J. A. Whittier
in control of operations and Louis Pratt
as Bec.-treasurer.   $->5,000 is the amount i  OF INTEREST TO RAILROADERS.   I
subscribed for development work. !     	
Work will be begun on Grey Copper I    Ceo. T. Moir, for many years C.P.R.
ground, and ihe ledge in sight will be I station   agent   at   Sandon   and   other |
drifted on for about 300 feet.    This ledge  Slocan points   has_ been promoted  to
runs parallel with the rich Reco vein.
When the drift has been run for
300 feet a crosscut will be driven to tap
the Reco-Goodenough vein. Thia will
give a depth on the ledge of 900 feet.
Tlie progiess ot the new syndicate
will be watched with interest, as over
a million dollars' worth of ore was taken
the charge of the Grand Forks agency.
Mr. Moir has been agent at Phoenix
for the past six months. His many
friends will be pleased to learn of his
second quickstep toward the presidency,
Sandon's present popular agent, F, S.
Macdonald, has been offered the Phoenix
Conductor J. Cameron has been pro-
i from  the grassroots.     May their faith
! in the property ultimately demonstrate [ moted to the position of trainmaster at,
! that the Slocan is there with tlie goods j Nelson, and we understand he will as
once   again  when   they   are  properly ] SUme the new duties immediately.   Mr.

On the Reco Trail.
The trail to the Reco is a busy one.
Twice a day Ihe Towgood packing outfit
makes a round trip to the Reco mine,
where J. M. Harris lias a large force of
miners at work taking out ce. It is
good to see this high grade producer on
the shipping list again. A car of grey
copper ore was Sent forward last week
and the puckers havo their string of
twenty humping down two more cars.
We are officially informed that the Reco
has at present the richest showing in
the history of the mine. A new lead
has been located and opened up which
has a paystreak 10 inches wide assay
ing a thousand dollars. There is a fortune on sight at the Reco this minute.
Govt. Road Inspector Cameron has a
crew of men working on the Reco trail
which is to be put in thoroughly good
condition. We understand that a tonnage guarantee was exacted before these
extensive improvements were begun.
Mr. Cameron informed our scribe that
the trail will be wide enough to take a
Bleigh over.

The opening date of the fa*r will be
September 18th, and it will remain
open for three days. The management
announce that it wid be larger and better
than ever, a comparison of the 1906 and
this years' catalogue certainly corroborates Ihoir assertion. There will
be something doing every minute. Free
shows twice flaily will be a popular
feature. Nelson Fall Fair is always
eagerly awaited by dwellers in all parts
of the Kootenays, and this year the
al tending crowds will be larger than

been experimentedwith excellent results
have been forthcoming. We understand
that four of these ilimers have recently
been laid down at the St. Eugene, and
the management speak of them in the
highest manner.
Dr. Petersky discovered a torn pocket
in the Reco Hotel pool table. It goes to

Kenneth L. Burnet,
Agent,     |
The citizens of Snndon nnd Kaslo are
highly indignant because the Postmaster
General has dropped the matter of
transferring the mail contract on the
Kaslo Nelson route from the Can. Pacific
to the Great Northern Co., but the Kaslo
Board ol Trade and the Sandon Citizen's
Committee are determined to put forth
every effort to secure redress.
When Hon. Rudolphe Lemieux (post
master general) informed the Sandon
Committee that it would be a losing
proposition for tlie Department if the
contract were transferred, we believe he
did so honestly acquiescing in the information at his command, but we think
that had he gone into thc matter more
minutely lie would have been convinced
that his information was all awry and
his deductions faulty.
By reason of existing conditions tlie
City ot Sandon is deprived of a daily
mail service with NelBon. Letters mailed in Nelson to this city and points
bstneen here and Kaslo are hung up at
the Kaslo office twenty-four hours, and
for this anomalous state of affairs no
excuse can be found other than an un*
justifiable one of economy. In his com-
munieation to the Sandon Committee
ihe Postmaster general goes on to Eay:
" If the C.P.R. boats only carried the
mails for Kaslo and Sandon, the question of substituting the boats of the
Kootenav Lake Navigation Co. might,
be considered, but they also provide for
mail service to other points than Kaslo.
What you would therefore seem to ask
is lhnt an arrangement be made with
the K.L.N.C. to carry your mnils. It is
estimated that payment made to thiB
company at the ordinary rale of 5 cents
per m.le, together with the necessary
side services, would involve! a total
annual expenditure of $1800. This
company's boats are now us d for a
serviee as far bb Club Landing. Deducting, therefore, the amount now paid,
the increased expenditure would be over
$1500 per annum, practically all for the
service, to Sandon, as lhe service to
Kaelo appears to be satisfactory."
In the first place the Rckview wishes
to positively assert that the service to
Kaslo docs not " appear satisfactory,"
nor is it satisfactory in any sense of the
word. Secondly, the improved service
demanded is not " practically all for the
service to Sandon." A large area in
this district is served by thiB, the only
available route between Sandon and
Kaslo. The important mining camps of
Whitewater, McGuigan and South Fork
besides other points all receive their
mail from NeLon and points contiguous
via the Kaslo office, and the howls of
protest at tha unnecessary delay of 24
hours would make the Postmaster
general search for a different word to
" satisfactory " could he but hear them.
Both the C.P.R. and the G.N.R.
steamers are scheduled to leave Nelson
at thc same minute each day (7 a.m.),
but the race to the Knslo wharf has invariably ended in favor of tlie G.N.R.
boat with its rival a bad second. Now,
the C.P.R. boat carries the mail for
Kaslo and all points up toSandon. The
mail sicks for the last-iiientioncd are
supposed to be tiansferred to tho Great
Northern  train,   but on NO  occasion
Either the Postmaster gon?ral has been
grossly misinformed ot there ia a" nigger
in lhe woodpile."
Tho government at present pay the,
C.P. Pi. 5 cents per mile for carrying all
the mail between Nelson and way,
points, and pay extra between Kaslo
and Lardo. They also pay extra for
Craw ford Bay and Lynchville mail. The
Great Northern bouts are paid liy the
government for carrying mail to Willow
Poiut, Sarroh Point and Kokanee Creek.
We wish to emphasise ihe fact that the
contracts for all the points we mention
are distinct and separate. From Knslo
to Lardo is one contract, from Nelson to
Kaslo is another, and all the other
points are contracted for separately.
Now, it stands to reason that both
boats cover the same mileage between |
Nelson and Kaslo, and as live cents per
mile has to he paid to one company or j
the other for carrying the mail in question, no distortion or equivocation can
make tlie coat more or less.
The Lardo contrnct would remain ns
heretofore. If the Grout Northern had
tho Nelson-Kaslo contract no trouble
would be experienced in transferring
the mails destined for Lardo to the
C.P.R. boat.
In figuring out the proposed change
the Post-master general has totalled up
all the contracts, added the amount of
the G.N.R. propored contract, and given
us the gross result. There is no other
solution to the puzzle. Tnat may he
tho system of mensuration at Ottawa,
but here in the west we are taught that
one and one make two.
Now we can show that instead of it
being a losing proposiiion' it would be a
winning one for tlie department if lhe
change were made. We have pointed
out that the Great No-thern distributes
mail sacks at three points on. Kootenay
lake, and we respectfully submit that
this extra expense would he eliminated
by the transfer.
At the prosent time the \\h de district
is hampered by the tardy and unsatisfactory way tliey have of distributing
the mall. It 1b palpable that the wants
of the west will never be met until the
west cu's out the lawyers and sends
represensatives to the Dominion house
who have no axes to be ground by railway corporations. And while we aro at
it, we commend our case to the tender
care of our member, Big Bid Galliher,
for it is high time begot a move on.
But there, 'tis useless, Bill is a lawyer.

stand to reason that a competing company will confer the favor of waiting for
a tardy rival, and it so happens that by
the lime the mail sacks appear at the

would have ample time to do business,

What I saw last night shocked me beyond expression."
"Well, you shouldn't have looked,"
she retorted, tossing her chin, and the
red feather in her hat bobbed angrily.
"I am surprised that one as clever
as you are could have carried on an
amour so incautiously," he said blandly.
"What do you mean?"
"I mean that I saw everything that

to take that man into your room, a
place sacred in the palace of Graustark? Answer me, Miss Calhoun."
Beverly drew back In horror and bewilderment.
"Into my room ?" she gasped.

and trust you most. What will the
princess aay when sbe hears of last
night's merry escapade? What will
she say when she learns who was hostess to a common guardsman at tbe
midnight hour? It Is no wonder that
you look terrified. It is for you to
say whether she Is to know or not.
You can bind me to silence. You have
lost Baldos. Take me and all that I
can give you In his stead, and the
world never shall know the truth. You
love him, I know, and tbere Is but one
���way to save him. Say the word and
he goes free to the hills; decline and
bis life is not worth a breath of air."
"And pretending to believe this of
me, you still ask me to be your wife.
Wbat kind of a man are you?" she demanded, scarcely able to speak.
"My wife?" be said harshly. "Oh,
no. You are not the wife of Baldos,"
he added significantly.
"Heavens!" gasped Beverly, crushed by the brutality of it all. "I would
sooner die. Would to heaven my father were here. He would shoot you
as he would a dog! Oh, bow I loathe
yout Don't you try to stop me! I
shall go to the princess myself. She
shall know wbat manner of beast you

With anger aud shame.
"Remember, I cun prove what I have

"You disgusting old fool," she hissed,
turning upon hlm as she pulled the
big brass knocker on the door.
"I must have my answer tonight or
you know what will happen," he snarled, but be felt In his heart tbat he had
lost through his eagerness.
Sbe flew to Yetive's boudoir, consumed hy rage and mortification. Between
sobs and feminine maledictions sbe
poured the whole story, ln all Its ugliness, Into the ears of the princess.
"Now, Yetive, you bave to stand by
me in this," announced the narrator
conclusively, ber eyes beaming hopefully through ber tears.
"I cannot prevent General Marlanx
from preferring serious charges against
Baldos, dear. I know he was not In
your room last night. You did not
have to tell me that, because I saw
you both at the balcony rail." Beverly's face took on such a radiant look of
rejoicing that Yetive wns amply paid
for the surprising and gratifying acknowledgment of a second period of
eavesdropping. "You may depend upon me to protect you from Marlanx.
Be can  moke It verv  unnlaaaanl*  for
Baldos,  but he  shall  pay dearly
this insult.  He has gone too far
"I don't think ne nas any prool
against Baldos," said Beverly, thinking only of tbe guardsman.
"But it Is so easy to manufacture evidence, my dear. The Iron Count haa
set his heart upon having you, and he
ls not the man to be turned aside easily."
"He seems to think he can get wives
as easily as he gets rid of them, I observe. I was going back to Washington soon, Yetive, but I'll stay on now
and see this thing to the end. He can't
scare a Calhoun; no sir-eel I'll telegraph for my brother Dau to come over
here and punch his head to pieces."
"Now, now, don't be so high and
mighty, dear. Let us see how rational
we can be," said the princess gently,
whereupon the hot headed girl from
Dixie suspended hostilities and became
a very demure young woman. Before
long she was confessing timidly, then
boldly, that she loved Baldos better
than anything in all the world.
"I can't help it, Yetive. I know I
oughtn't to, but what ls there to do
when one can't help It? There would
be an awful row at home if I married
him. Of course he hasn't asked me.
Maybe he won't In fact, I'm sure he
won't I shan't give him a chance.
But if he does ask me I'll just keep
putting him off. I've done it before,
you know. You see, for a long, long
time I fancied he might be a prince,
but he isn't at aH. I've had his word
for It He's just an ordinary person,
like ��� like ��� well, like I am, only he
doesn't look so ordinary. Isn't ha handsome, Yetive? And, dear me, he is so
Impulsive! If he bad asked me to
Jump over the balcony rail with'him
last night I believe I would have done
It Wouldn't that have surprised old
Marlanx?" Beverly gave a merry
laugh. The troubles of the morning
seemed to fade away under the warmth
of her humor. Yetive sat back and
marveled at the manner ln which this
blithe young American cast out tbe
"blue devils."
"You must not do anything foolish,
Beverly," she cnutitmed. "Your parents would never forgive me if I allowed you to marry or even to fall ln
love with any Tom, Dick or Harry
over here. Baldos may be the gallant,
honest gentleman we believe him to
be, but he also may be the worst of adventurers. One can never tell, dear.
I wish now tbat I had not humored
you ln your plan to bring him to the
castle. I'm afraid I have done wrong.
You have seen too much of him, and���
oh, well, you will be sensible, won't
you, dear?" There was real concern ln
tbe face of the princess. Beverly kissed
her rapturously.
"Don't worry about me, Yetive. I
know how to take care of myself. Worry about your old Gabriel, If you like,
but don't bother your head about me,"
she cried airily. "Now let's talk about
the war. Marlanx won't do anything
until he hears from me. What's the
use worrying?"
Nightfall brought General Marlanx ln
from the camps outside the gates. V
came direct to the castle and bo'r! .
lent word to Beverly that he iiinnt
speak to her at once. She jj.uu.it:.-
answered that she did not wan! to
see him and would not Without n
moment's hesitation li * appealed fer
audience with the p.incjss, and it
was granted.
He proceeded, wil'i irnte coolness,
to ask how far she believed herself
bound to protect the person of Baldos, the guard. He understood sbe
was under obligations to Miss Calhoun, and he wanted to be perfectly
sure of his position before taking n
step wMcn now seeinei'f Imperative.
Bnldos was a spy tn tbe employ ol
Dawsbergen. He had sufficient proof
to warrant bis arrest aud execution;
tbere were documents and there was
positive knowledge that he had conferred with strangers from time to
time, even wfthln thc walls of the castle grounds. Marlanx cited Instances
In which Baldos hnd been seen talking
to a strange old man Inside the grounds,
and professed to have proof that be
had gone so far as to steal tr.v.iy by
night to meet men beyond the city
walls. Ho was now ready to si\:-.c the
guard, but would not do so ui.il he
bad conferred with bis sovereign.
"Miss Calhoun tells me that you have
made certain proposals to her, Count
Marlanx," said Yetive coldly, her i yes
upon his hawkish face.
"I have asked her to be my wbc.
your highness."
"You havo threatened her, Count
"She has exposed herself to yoi? I
would not have told what I viw la. t

to discuss the matter further. You
have lost tbe right to be called a man.
For the present I have only to say that
you Bhall be relieved of the command
of my army. The man who makes
war on women ls not fit to serve one.
As for Baldos, you are at liberty to
prefer tho charges. He shall have a
fair trial, rest assured."
"Your highness, hear me," Implored
Marlanx, white to the roots of his balr.
"I will hear what you have to say
when my husband ls at my side."
"I can but stand condemned, then,
your highness, without n hearing. My
vindication will come, however. With
your permission, I retire to contrive
the arrest of this spy. You may depose
me. hut you ennnot ask me to neglect
my duty to Graustark. I have tried to
save hlm for Miss Calhoun's sake"���
But her band was polptlng to tlu door.
Ten "minutes later- Beverly was hear-
ing everything from tbe lips of the
princess, and Marlanx was cursing bis
way toward tbe barracks, vengeance
ln his heart. But a swift messenger
from the castle reached the guardroom
ahead of him. Colonel Quinnox was
reading an official note from the princess when Marlanx strode angrily Into
the room.
"Bring this fellow Baldos to me,
Colonel Quinnox," he said, without

"Bab! I am here to order the man's
arrest.   It Is more Important than"���
"Nevertheless, sir, he goes to the castle first. This note says I am to disregard any command you may give

Marlanx fell hack amazed and stunned. At this Juncture Baldos entered
the room. Quinnox handed him nn envelope, telling hlm that It was from
the princess aud that he was to repair
at once to the castle. Bnldos glanced
at the handwriting, and his face Ut up

From Two Ladies Who Have Been Cured of Extremely
Torturing Cases of Piles by
Dr. Chase's Ointment
Mrs. Geo. H. Simser, ("runt, itusseii
county, Ont.. writes: "Eleven years
ago 1 began to suffer from piles, and
e.s they caused keen distress, nnd he-
cnnie worse, I doctored for them, but
with little or no avail. They were
bleeding, itching and protruding, and
oh ! tlie torture I suffered at times can
never be described. It was with suffering that the bowels moved, and, as
nothing brought relief, I could only
endure the misery with an aching
heart nnd without hope of cure.
"Finally a lady friend told me about
Dr. Chase's Ointment curing piles, and
to my surprise I felt relief at once on
using this ointment; the little tumors
soon disappeared, the ulcers healed,
and tlie bowels became regular. This
was live years ago, and I have never
been troubled with this terrible ailment since, a thousand thanks to Dr.
Chase's Ointment."
Mrs. Capt. Clinansmith, Salvation
Army, Essex, Ojit., writes: "It is with
pleasure thut 1 write to you iu praise
of Dr. Chase's Ointment. Two years
ago I was taken with a severe attack
.ii protruding piles, and became fo
bud that I hud to keep my bed, und
could lie in no position except on my

felt keenly the burden that was enst
upon the conscience of England, as
one of the powers by whose consent
the Congo Free State was established
and its neutrality guaranteed, and
stating that the gravest responsibility
will lie upon the consenting powers
to bring to an end, in some way

Memory ot John Adams Is Held
In Reverence by His Descendants.
"A few months ago," writes a correspondent of "The Giaphie," "two of
His Majesty's warships, the Flora and
Cambrian, paid a visit to Pitcairn Island, making a stay of several days.
Pitcairn, as everybody knows, ia inhabited by descendants of the mutineers of the Bounty, and most people
are fumiliar with the romnntic history
of the little l_jand far away in the
Pncilic. On dropping anchor in
Bounty Bay the Flora and Cambrian
were immediately boarded by the islanders, who brought off a large quantity of oranges, bananas, and pineapples, which were vefy welcome to
the crews. There were about 160 souls
on the island, nnd the general health
of the community was very good.
They certainly all looked extremely
well, due no doubt, to the outdoor
life they lend. The weather being fine
during the stay of the ships, a large
number of officers and men landed in
order tp see the conditions under
which the islanders live. There is
only one landine-place. in Bounty
Bay. and even here landing is only
possible when the sea is cnlm, owing
to the rocl.y nnd unprotected nature
of the coast. Bounty Bny, of course,
derives its name from the Rhip_which
was run ashore there by those of the
mutineers who enrne over in her from
Their Hospitality.
Climbing the steep path from the
landinir-plnce, one came upon the little settlement, which presented a picturesque appearance. All the womenfolk of the colony were anxious to
show their hospitality to the visitors
from the ships, nnd thev invited all
and sundrv to come inside their little
houses and ma''" themselves at home.
The houses of Pitcairn do not appear
much better than huts to European
eyes, but they are suited to the tropical climate of tlie island. The church
is a more pretentious structure,
though having no claim to architectural henntv. Although on the maternal side the islanders are descended
from Tnhitnn stock, the strain of native blood is not verv noticeable. In
some respects, however, such as their
keen eyesiffht, acute hearine. and agil-
itv. they have retained some of the
characteristics of their ruder ancestors.
It is interest'"'' to know that there
is still nlive a li**1i with tho old mutineers, in the person of Thursday October Christian���a prandson of the original Christian. The old man���he was
born in 1819���is the only one existing, who has spoken to John Adams;
he was 10 years of age when the latter died. He was an object of great
interest to the people from the men-
of-war, and he held quite a levee in
his little house. He remembers John
Adams very distinctly, and related
how the reformed mutineer used to
teach him and the other young members of the colony. Adams remains
in his memory ns a 'good old man
and a sincere Christian.' The grave
of Adams is in a shady gt*ove, away
from the burial ground of the community. On the 9unday morning, in
addition to the men. a number of
women and children, came off to the
Flora and attended Divine Service on
board. They inined henrtily in the
singing, and followed the service with
an earnestness which showed thnt the
precepts inculcated by John Adams

How  the   Native   Papers   Are   Doing
Harm Among the People.
Canada is just now watching with
great eagerness and anxiety the reports emanating from 1-idia, dealing
with native insurrections and alleged
unrest generally. The following passages obtained by The Standard from
The Calcutta I'ptiealee, apropos of the
recent Hindu-Mohammedan riot at
Jamnlpiir, are typical of the native
journalists' effusions, which ore doing
so much harm nmong the ignorant
nnd  excitable  populace:
"To-day the Oovernment officials
openly sided, presumably with the ap
proval of ��� tho head of the provincial
administration, with '.hose who break
Hindu imnges, desecrate Hindu temples, plunder the houses *nnd shops of
Hindus, and ravish Hindu women.
T.he spectacle of Fnropean magistrates
and district superintendents nf police
personally ordering and directing the
looting of the houses of Hindu residents nnd the cutcheries (offices) of
Hindn znminders (landowners) would
have been impossible half a century
atro (at the time of the Mutiny which
broke out at Meernt on Mav 11, 1857.)
"Yesterday we demanded the recall
of Mr. Hare (the Lieutenant-Governor
of Eastern Bengal), who has already
shown himself heir to all the blemishes of his predecessor without nny
of the redeeming points of the lntter
He hns eclipsed the record of Anrune-
zeb ns the persecutor of the Hindus,
without Aurnnezeb's excuse of religious zeal. There can be nn peace for
East Bengal so long ns this Anelo-
Indian Maehinvelli is permitted to
pursue the policy of repressing Hindus."
The same article refers to
"The effect which the persei-ution
of Hindus in Fast Beniral under the
personal supervision nnd guidance of
high offioiils of the Government, and
the demolition of Hindu idols, cannot fail to Dro(."ee in the minds ot
Hind", ehiefs. Hindu officials, nnd
the Hindu sowars nnd sepoys of the
native armv. who have to endure the
taunts of their co-religionista with
having become so craven-hearted, ro
utterly incapable of self-defence, that
the Government no longer thinks It
necessary to avoid wounding our ten-
derest feelings."
Only one Bengali organ. The Mirror, has the honesty to admit the sequence of cause and effect, and to
advise the recalling of the Hindu agitators who have done so much harm
in many parts of the country.

Dumas and His Money.
Dumas the elder was not in the

once, leaving it on the mantel when
he left the room for a few minutes.
When he returned and was giving
some instructions to a servant he me-
chunicully counted the pieces over
again and found a louis missing.
"Well," he said, with n sigh,, "considering that I never counted my

A Critic's Comparison of the Modern
With the Ancient.
"One of the strangest things about
the early printing Is the fact that the
paper and binding were so much better tban we have nowadays," said a St.
Louis collector.
"I have books on my shelves printed
and bound by presumably reputable
Arms, and yet nfter six or eight years
of careful use the paper is coming to
pieces and the bindings are gone, while
side by side with them are books 300
years old witb paper intact and the
bindings ns good as new. The difference Is of course in honesty of material and work. In the old days a
hide was allowed to lie in the tanner's vats for a year before It was
thought fit for use. Paper was handmade of real linen rags. Now book
leather is ready two or three weeks
after the calf has been skinned. Paper Is machine made of heaven knows
what. Of course there may be honestly made paper and strong binding now,
as there were then, but a couple of
hundred years ago good binding and paper were the rule. Now tbey are the
rare, also the costly, exceptions. It Is
true that the high temperatures of the
houses, the gases and coal fumes may
have something to do with impairing
leather bindings, for, as everybody
knows, a stout cloth or canvas binding
Is better than the leather now used.
The same Influences may also damage
the paper, but still the fact remains
that neither the temperature nor the
gases affect the work of the old printers, so the difference, after all, Is one
of quality."

Peculiar Combination of Events Relate*4 by Andrew Lang.
As to "the long arm of coincidence,"
It may be as long as is necessary.
Nothing is impossible to coincidence.
An Instance of my own experience,
said Andrew Lang, convinces me of
this fact. I had been reading a foolish
book, "Out of the Burly Burly," and
some of the lhynies ran in my bend.
They began:
Bury Bartholomew out in the woods
In a beautiful hole ln the ground.
In the afternoon 1 drove witb a par
ty of friends, and we took the refresh
ment of tea at a house where there
were several other guests, all unknown
to me even by name. As two of these
lived at a place on our homeward
route, they accompanied us in our ve
hlcle. As we passed a wood on a hill
side one of these anonymous strnugers
said to me, "This is the burial place of
the Murrays of Glendhubrene." I ah
sently and automatically replied:
Bury Bartholomew out ln the woods
In a beautiful hole ln tho ground.
A kind of chill blight settled on the
party, though one of them tactfully
asked me whnt poet I was quoting.
Wheu we hnd set down our two
strangers nt their own home I wns*
nsked whether I knew the name of the
geutleman on whom I had expended
my poetical quotation? Of course I did
not know, nnd of course his surname
was Bartholomew, while, as he seemed

fortune banter us," for Bartholomew
