Another striking example that deep
milling will pay in the Slooan in to he
placed on record. At the haul Chance
mine, which is owned by the Last
Chance Mining Co., of Spokane, astrikc ' other, but on the whole the prices are
of  great importance  was  made  early  about the same."
" After years of agitation, years during which I have been abused more
than once and my motives more than
freoly criticized," said N. Cavanaugh
recently to a representative of the
Daily News, " we have seen the price of
the smelting of lead brought down from
if in to fill a ton. Hence we Slocan men
have i|o kick coming on the lead smelting charges. It is nearly all one to use
whether we send our ore to Europe, to
the states, or to our local smelters.
Sometimes we gain on the description
of ore at one smelter rather than the
tills week. The tunnel in which the
new strike was made is a continuation
of a tunnel of the American lioy which
had been driven to the line of the Last
Chance claim, and which was purchased by the latter company,
Men have been working in the drift
since the company resumed operations
a few months ago, and on Saturday last
indications were favorable to the close
proximity of ore. Continuing, a good
body of ore was broken into tlie next
day, and for the following shifts the
paystrcak has widened out. There is
now 10 inches of high-grade galena ore,
and the face of the drift is permeated
with mineral. It is too curly yet to
epo."k of the continuity of tlie find, as
. only five shifts have been changed as
we write this. The ore has come in
earlier than was anticipated, and the
management are highly elated over
their fine showing.
There is every reason for believing
that the ore body encountered is in the
main ledge, and if siicli be the case, t'iC
Last Chance is on tbe high road to paying dividends, and the stockholder
and directors are to lie congratulated.
It was mainly through their faith in
the deep milling possibilities of the
Slocan and their property in particular,
backed by the representations of Mr.
I, Pratt, that sufficient capital was
raised to begin a systematic plan of
development, At tlie point where tlie
ore body was encountered they have a
vertical depth uf 1,000 feet, and as they
can drive 1000 feet mora before reaching
the end of their ground, a tremendous
depth will be attained, operations in
which will Ih; watched with keen interest.
Mr. Louis Pratt, the company's mine
manager, was interviewed by a Review
man on Tuesday. Speaking of tlie outlook at the mine he said : "Yes; a
���strike of 8 to 10 indies of very high-
grade ore was made at the Last Chance
a few days ago in our lowest level, and
we arc all feeling good over it. The ore
has come in rather earlier than we expected it would, but I believe it is the
main body. Only a few shifts have
worked on the ore since it came in, and
it is therefore early to say thai the ore
body is the main one. I am particularly gratified at tlie strike, because it was
following my representations to the
company that the money was recently
put up to develop the property. We
have 37 men at tlu* Last Chance camp,
and everything is going along smoothly.
This country lias scarcely been scratched
on the surface vet, and if capital can be
induced to c.oino in and proceed with
deep mining, I feel confident the camp
would show a tremendous tonnage."
Big Blaze Narrowly
The dread alarm of lire rang out
on tlie frosty air on Sunday last. In
lens than two minutes the three sections
of the fire brigade were on tlie spot and
directing a stream of water upon tlie
building of tlie Sandon Hardware Co.
The fire was oaused by a defective stovepipe between the ceiling of the store and
the floor of the upper storey, and upim
arrival of the brigade the ceiling
wat blazing furiously and the Btore was
filled with smoke. A small hand pump
failed to check the spread of the dread
element, but the prompt action of San-
don's fire-fighters, who with axe and
bar, fought like demons, and  a copious
ream of water, had the desired effect.
The onlbreak was discovered by C. E.
Lyons who immediately sounded the
alarm near the K, it S. depot; the
alarms on Main Street being rung by
Harold Graham. It was extremely fortunate that the outbreak occurred at tho
noon hour, as the K. & S. train crew
were practically on the spot, and a
large percentage of the brigade in town
at lunch. The damage done will be
covered by $100, but had the fire started
at a more unfavorable lime, we would
have had to write of the destruction of
the whole Qiegcrich block.
There was Ifi inches of the ' beautiful'
at the Silver Glance minaat  the begin
"To bIiow you that it iB so," continued Mr. Cavanaugh, " let us take an
ore running CO per cent lead and 100
ounces silver. This may be a little
higher than our average ores, but it
will serve as an example, and from it
the comparative rates of other silver-
lead ores may easily he deduced. Let
us take the price of lead at ��19 and silver at 70 cents. In calculating exchange the local sinelterB assume the
sovereign to be worth $4.84. Further
there is locally a deduction of 10 per
cent upon the lead and 6 per cent upon
the silver. Thus 00 per cent of lead
equals 1200, less 10 per cent deduction.
equals 1080 pounds ; this is on the short
ton. Now ��19 is quoted on the long ton
and is equivalent to 4.106 cents per
pound. From this one cent is deducted
for refining, marketing and other charges and the mine then gets paid on 10S0
pounds of lead at 3.106 cents, and not on
1200 at 4.106 cents. This is equivalent
to $33.44 per ehort ton. To this must
be added the value of the silver, 100
ounces at 70 cents, Icsb five per cent, or
$GG50. Tlie total gross value, after
these deductions, is, therefore, $99.91.
From this there is lhe further deduction
of $10 a tun foi 'inciter charges, freight
and 11 cat men t, giving a net return of
$80.04. If the mine cannot gaurantte
a steady supply it will ho charged $12
instead of $10, in which case the net
return is only $87 94. From this return,
of course, all charges of mining, development, taxes, etc., must Le paid.
"Thus for the local smelters���now
lake the cane of thu Americans. They
likewise make a deduction of ton and
five per cent for tlie lead and silver respectively. For the net con ten I of lead
for which payment is made, vir. , 1080
pounds, lhe Americans pay ��5.75 per
hundred, or 5 75 cents per pound. This
is tho fixed price made possible hy ths
tariff. At this rate the gross value of
the hod is ��02.10 aid lhe value of
the silver is the same as here, $00 50,
making a gioss total of $128 60. From
lliis, however, must be deducted tlie
freight, treatment, duty, etc., tlie
whole amounting to a charge of $39 per
ton giving the net result to the mine of
$80.60, slightly less than that which the
mine may cam by smelting i'B product
" But," went on Mr. Cavanaugh,
"the European smelters reckon altogether differently. They make no
deduction lor the lead and silver,
but give tlie lull values. Moreover, they reckon the sovereign at $4 86
and not at $4 84, again giving the mine
a slight advantage. In this way the
lead is figured out at 4.123 cents a
pound, which on 1200 pounds���not
1080 pounds, there buing no ten per
cent deduction���yields $49.47. Again,
tho silver is reckoned at the full figure
and 100 ounces at 70 cents is worth
just $70; thus the gross value ia $119.48.
From Ibis there is a deduction for
freight of $15, other charges ahout $3,
and treatment about $10, or a total
charge ol $28, yielding a net result of
$1)1 48, a dollar and a half belter than
the local rate.
"Of courae," said Mr Cavanaugh, " if
the ore is less than the amount given,
as to value, then this difference in
favor of the European smelter is quickly
wiped out as you will soon aee by permuting a few examples. Anyway it is
near enough loenaldc the local smelters
to say, and Lo say truthfully, that tbey
arc smelling as cheaply as their competitors on either side of tlie Atlantic.
It is a big come down from the $19
they were charging not so very long ago,
and you may now look upon me, as the
smelters have cut their prices practically in half, as a reconciled man, and no
longer a kicker."

When transportation facilities arc
provided for the properties tributary
to the Duncan River, we predict a
great rush to the Lardo-Duncan section.
Although so many miles from a shipping point, there has been considerable
development work done on many properties, and in a great many instances
big bodies of ore running from $15 to
$75 per ton have been uncovered.
These bodees have been traced for considerable distances. On the Abbot
group, at the headwaters of Haley
creek, strong mineralized veins have
been '^traced for 80.0 feet averaging 12 to
15 feet wide. The outcroppings on this
property, and also the King William
which adjoins aro in many places as wide
as 20 feet, and carry galena and carbonates. On the Wagner group, when we
visited the property some two years
ago, a crosscut had been driven through
the ledge 25 feet to the hanging wall,
and 12 inches of solid galena ore and
30 inches of good concentrating was
passed through. A winze was also
sunk for^80 feet on a continuous body
of solid ore averaging 14 inches. From
the Badshot, which is situated on
Gainer creek, several shipments have
been made, but only the pick of the ore
has been sent to the smelter. There is
considerable concentrating ore on this

amount of devclopm ent work has been

good values, particularly in copper.
The Old Gold and Primrose has a small
crew of men at work for a few months
each year, but operations are confined
chiefly to dfivelopmen t work by reason
of the exorbitant transportation fees.
There is] a tremendous amount of concentrating ore on sight on the Duncan
Divide, and it only awaits the advent
of cheaper transportation or custom
mills to open up this country.
J. W. Powers, of Sandon, in company
with L. F. Guernsey, of the Trail smelter, visited the Bed Elephant group,
which is near the Bannockburn, one
day last week. The object of the smelter man's visit was to size up the tonnage, take samples, and secure other
data which he would embody in a report to his company. It is well known
that the Trail smelter has in the near
future to secure more ore for fluxing
purposes, and the representations make
to the company by Mr. Power occasion*
tlie recent visit.
Interviewed by our representative,
Mr. Power said that Mr. Guernsey had
thoroughly examined the property
and he felt confident a favorable report
would be made. Mr. Guernsey nail
expressed himself to the effect that the
conditions, quantity and quality of the
ore were better than represented.

Lardeau, where he has been working on

section by   reason of the timber boom.

After wading through a pile of B. C.
exchanges every day for the past week
and reading the diatribes on the Mc-
Bride evacuation business, we are inclined to the belief that a wave of
emotional insanity has passed over the
province. On the one hand the Grit
press portray the Premier with horns,
cloven hoof, and tail to match, and on
the other hand the government organs
picture " Dcwdney Dick " as an Apollo
with crisp curly hair, a made-to-
measure halo surmounting, and gauze
wings. " You pays your money, and
you takes your choice."
The Grit press would have registered
a kick no matter what resulted. They
just have to. It is one of the planks of
their platform. If the Premier had not
handed the bluff back to the dealers he
would have been in the eyes of the
Grits and everybody else : a coward, a
dastard, a weakling. As it was, he set
out to secure better terms for the province, and he went strong. He played
his cards for all they were worth and
by this means secured a better offer than
the Conference were at first prepared to
concede. The e ml justified the means,
but still he is the recipient of more
abuse lroni the Liberal press than any
other man in the province. Even the
Hon. li. F. Green is not being advertised. We doubt much if the Hon.
Richard is losing any sleep.

An editor can usually take a joke as
well as anybodv, but there are times
during tlie rush of business when he is
apt to miss the point of the joke for
some moments.
Sueh an incident occurred recently in
a northern camp newspaper office,
which ended disastrously for the joker.
The joker in question was the, editor's
own brother-in-law, who had just arrived from tlie Old Country, and whom
he hadn't seen for ten years. He came
to pay a surprise visit, and, being more
or less given to practical joking, he determined to wait upon the scribe in the
guiso of the " feller what wants to see
the editor mighty quick and to lick
him too."
He was a big, strapping man, well
fitted to enact such a part, and when he
forced bis way into the editor's private
office ho had his hat pulled down over
bis eyes and a cigar elevated at an angle
of 15 degrees, causing him to look very
" Is this the editor ? " he asked, as he
faced his relation.
"It is," was the reply. "What can
I do for you ? ''
" Nothing," returned the fierce looking man. "It's me what wants to do
with you. Are you prepared to take a
good licking ? "
"Charmed, I'm sure!" replied the
scribe, and with that he picked up a
column of boiler-plate and jabbed it in
the visitor's whiskers, knocking him
under the table. The editor's collie dog
caught on to the fellow's bitter end and
acted most affectionately. The foreman
in the composing-room had a roller in
his hand at the time, and hearing the
rumpus ih the office, came running in
just in time to sit on the strange man's
chest and run the roller over his  face.
When the man came to his senses he
explained his little joke, disclosing his
identity, and all was soon peace und

A dispatch from Los Angelos dated
Oct. 18 says: Passengers on the Los
Angeles Limited of the Salt Lake railroad, who arrived in Los Angeles yesterday, told of a prospector who stopped
a train running forty miles an hour in
the middle of the Majava desert by
flagging it with bis hat to secure water
for himself and burros. The train crew
supplied them all by the bucket full aB
quickly as possible, and started the
limited on its way again. An old
Nevada law which allows desert travellers who are In distress to stop trains
and demand water, a"d compels trains
to furnish the necessities, still holds
good. The prospector knew it and so
did the engineer.
"The success which attended the
distribution of the lead bounty will
make a valuable precedent should similar aid be asked for, tlie zinc mines,"
remarked G. O. Buchanan in a recent
interview. " A new industry can be
built up by the Federal authorities at
a cost of a few hundred thousand dollars which w ill bring many more settlerB
into the country, will be tbe cause of
many more properties being opened, and
will prove a source of wealth to Canada
in general." Mr. Buchanan suggests
that the Associative Boards of Trade
should take the matter up with the zinc
men and make representations to Ottawa, a suggestion which is most timely
and meritorious,

The advance in price of the baser
metals is remarkable. One year ago
the average price of copper was 16

was 18 cts., while pig lead in New York
has advanced from $4.85 to $0.05 per 100
pounds. All base metals the world
over arc in an exceptionally strong
statistical position, due to the worldwide liberal demand for manufactures

Her Sister's j
Author of "A Woman's Vengeance," "Which Loved Him
Best," "Between Two Loves," "Fairy Gold," Etc.
Marthe proved her courage; she
showed herself stoical, smiling even.
Moreover, In the noisy rejoicings of
this engagement, which was the event
of the season, tho elder sister was almost unnoticed, or she might have
betrayed a little of the sadness that
tilled her heart.
She expected an explosion of regrets from her old friend Mme. d'Ancel and some embarrassment In Robert; but love is such a selfish sentiment that It sees, and will see nothing
but itself. It seemed as if this denouncement had been long expected
and was Inevitable. All that had preceded this was forgotten, relegated
among the things of the past, a dead
past, which everybody was anxious to
As to Mme. d'Ancel, though she
loved Marlhe very much, she naturally considered her son's happiness preeminent. This happiness now depended on a union oilier than she had desired; sho sighed over her vanished
dream, and smiled at the dawning
love. From her early girlhood, Marthe
had always shown an aversion for
marriage, and although she had once
dreamed of overcoming this repugnance that time was past. Evidently,
Bhe was destined to celibacy, and Robert was not the man to woo a woman
against her will.
Besides, it was time Robert should
marry, and Edmee was quite as wealthy as her sister. She was a little
young and giddy, perhaps, and her
origin was not all it might be; but,
after all, she was entirely separated
from her mother's family. Time and
the duties of matrimony would mature her character; nothing would remain of her exuberance but a little
vivacity, of her coquetry but a natural
desire to please. This radiant creature would brighten her son's life,
and Edmee would be proud of her husband. She would aid him in his work,
be ambitious for both. Robert was
only a dreamer who worked for the
mere pleasure of work.ng. But a loving wife, who has a well-defined aim,
can do a great deal toward the advancement of a husband.
Nevertheless, it was in a tone of
gentle reproach that the baroness addressed Marthe shortly after the betrothal.
"Ah! Marthe," she sighed, "I had
hoped otherwise. I can not understand
why you could not love Robert All
young girls do not disdain happiness
as you do."
Marthe made no reply and Robert's
mother immediately went Into raptures over the perfections of that
"ravishing little sisler." She was in
the mother inlaw's period of honeymoon, that which precedes marriage.
Mme. Despois expressed no surprise
when the engagement was announced.
She was well satisfied at the arrangement which would so soon make
every thing as it was before the arrival of the "Intruder." In her delight,
she was all amiability and prepared
to offer Some of her most exquisite
embroideries as wedding gifts. One
day, as she was consulting the prospective bride on the shade of the
portieres for her boudoir, Edmee said,
"Your generosity is due to your delight over my departure, Aunt Relie.
Since my engagement you have permitted me lo call you so, a little more
and you shall consider me as a real
niece. That will be on the day after
my marriage, will it not!"
With her sister, Edmee was even
more affectionate and caressing lhan
In lhe past. There was a difference,
however. She was less dependent,
less of a child near her; her dignity
as a fiancee placed her on a level with
Marthe. She talked seriously, almost
with the dignity of a matron who has
had experience in life and knows tha
practical side of things. After the
first raptures, when sho had become
habituated to Robert's adoration, to
his protestations of love, she began to
busy herself wilh a thousand things,
which in an analogous situation would
have been entirely neglected by Marthe.
"You understand, Marthe" she said,
"that for the last two years I have
known just how my money has been
invested. My guardian who, though a
very disagreeable man, is extremely
honest, and Insisted himself on explaining the siluiUion to me. Robert
and I will have an income of about a
hundred thousand francs a year. One
can live nicely on that. You see, he
pleased me at once, and I skillfully
led people to talk of him without
arousing their suspicions. Thus I
learned his methodical habits, the esteem every body professes for him���
and, as for tho rest, your affection for
him was sufficient guarantee. I had to
look out for myself. In splto of your
twenty-six years, you are much more
Ignorant of the world than I am. I
realized also that I must get married
as soon as possible and have a home
of my own. I know that you are an
Incomparable sislor, but you might
have tirod of me."
"Never, never, Edmee!" protested
"How good you aro to me, Marthe!
Sometimes I am really ashamed of
myself. But Aunt Relio Is not of your
"Then," interrupted Marthe, astonished at this display of mercenary
motives in that apparently frivolous
nature, "you had planned and arranged It all beforehand? Why did you
not speak of It?"
"Because���I don't know just why���
I had a vague Idea that this marriage
would not please you. And besides, I
was not sure of Robert. Sometimes he
seemed quite infatuated, then again
he avoided me. I did not know what
to mako of it. Perhaps he was afraid
I was too light-headed to be his wife.
It must, have been that, don't you
think so?"
"Perhaps," said Marthe, with an
"But you know that I am really
serious hy nature."
"I begin to believe so."
"How funny you say that! Would
you really wish nie to be truly frivolous?"
"I do not know just what. I do wish,
my little Edmee. But it seems to me
that in the multiplicity of your calculations there remains but little
room for that absolute tyrannical
love. But���as you have approached
fnc more Ujan once���J am horribly ro-
manlic, old-fashioned, anylhing you
"You are mistaken, Marthe," observed Edmee, with big, astonished eyes;
"my calculations do not   replace    my
love. I love Robert very much, very
l much."
"Better love him without   qualiflca-
I tion."
i     "What a strange girl you are! Have
i no fear, my husband shall be happy."
Edmee had  also   other   preoccupations besides her plans for her  mar-
' rieil life. Her trousseau was the sub-
1 jeot of grave thoughts. She   made   a
! short   trip  to  Paris  with her    future
motlvr in-law, saw the   dress-makers,
ordered toilets of all kinds, which the
premiere of the house was to finish at
the chateau. This interested her even
I more than the visit to her guardian,
who, for the first time In his life, Bhow-
I ed himself amiable and obliging, so delighted was he to remit his responsl-
��� bilily into the hands of a husband. He
| expressed his regrets at being unable
' to  attend  the  marriage,  and  his  ex-
I cases were accepted without comment.
All they asked was his authorization
to  the  union  and   an account of  his
guardianship, which he gave  without
Then they visited apartments, the
most enchanting little houses, bill Edmee would decide nothing before her
marriage, as they would spend the
greater part of the winter in Italy, but
she wanted to see and have time for
Mme. d'Ancel returned from the expedition completely worn out, but still
delighted wilh her future daughter-in-
law; convinced that, In spite of her
naive airs, she was very practical and
knew full well what she wanted.
In the surrounding chateaux this
marriage, which was to take place at
the end of September, was an inexhaustible subject of conversation. A
pretty village wedding, with the rejoicings given to the peasants, is ^o
much more poelic lhan Lhose grcV
Parisian marriages.
The bridesmaids, under prelext of
consulllng the fiancee concerning their
toilets, continually filled the chateau
with the sound of their fresh young
voices, the rustling of skirts and peals
of merry laughter; and Robert found
it almost Impossible to obtain a tete-
a-tete with Edmee, who enjoyed all
this bustle Immensely.
In the midst of all this confusion,
Mme. Despois continued her pretty
work undisturbed.
One day, under the pretext of admiring the Intricate embroidery, Jessie
Robinson leaned over her shoulder
and said, quickly:
"I must speak to you alone, Madame. There are too many people
here; propose a walk In the garden."
Much perplexed by the serious expression on the girl's pretty face,
Mme. Despois arose, saying:
"Yes, Miss Jessie, I love to Imitate
natuie In my work. Come with me into the garden, and I shall show you
the climbing rosebush that served me
as model for this."
She drew the girl's arm within her
own, and they left lhe drawing-room
"Well, what is it?" asked Aunt Relie, as they reached the garden.
"Something strange is going on," replied Jessie; 'something you would
be ihe last to hear. I thought It my
duty lo warn you, but really don't
know how lo begin."
"In Hint case, the best way Is to go
straight to the point."
"My mother was much annoyed by
our servant Isadore's testimony at the
Inquest, and dismissed him, hoping he
would leave the neighborhood. But
he found work in a Villerville hotel,
and says openly that M. d'Ancel is
Captain Bertrand's murderer."
"How absurd!"
"Yes, but how can we put a stop to
an accusation which Is not formal? If
wo tried to intimidate this man, he
would claim that he was merely telling a story in which he was mixed up
as a witness. What he merely mentioned al lhe inquest he now exaggerates
and asserts. He speaks of threats, of
tne words "kill and without mercy,"
which were repeated more than once.
A little more and he will swear that
M. d'Ancel threatened to shoot his
old friend, like a dog. It. Is the topic
of conversation through the whole
"Bah! my dear child; don't trouble
yourself about It. Robert was questioned at the time of the murder, and his
answers were considered satisfactory.
People will soon tire of the affair, and
find some new topic of conversation."
"In the meantime,    this   gossip   Is
���going on. Ah!  If M. d'Ancel had only
I aitend-d our reception   on   that   Ill-
fated Thursday!"
!     "He excused himself, did he not?"
"N'o, and as we teased Edmee a
grout deal on the defection of her two
admirers, that absence was the subject of conversation while Isadora
���ervtd the tea in the garden."
"We must question Robert on the
way he spent that afternoon. But, I repeat It, my dear Jessie, it Is not worth
your while to trouble your head about
It. I assure you that none of those rumors have reached us."
"Naturally, not; but I can not say as
much for the other houses and chateaux In the neighborhood. Many of
our acquaintances, though they treat
these rumors with contempt, assure us
that the peasanls believe this absurd
story. Moreover, I overheard a few
words yesterday that sum up tho
"What do you mean?"
"You remember, Madame, that when
we went out riding In the afternoon,
Edmee and her fiance took the lead
M. d'Ancel Is madly In love and does
not try to conceal it. This explosion
of joy contrasts vividly with his
gloomy and anxious state, while the
captain was also courting Edmee.
When we reached Villerville, a group
of fishermen slopped to look at the
fiancees, nudging each other and
laughing. I was alone at the time, and
distinctly heard these words: 'HemI
all the name���if one of us had done it
he would have been thrown Into prison in very Bhort order. And look at
him now doing his courting without
being disturbed, and without any
more thought of the one he sent to
rot under the ground than we would
give to a tainted fish we throw back
Into the sea���and they call that justice and talk of a Republic���,' and
another made a threatening gesture
which he cut short when he saw me.
This is why I determined to speak, to
you. and ask you If we can not silence
these people by some means."
"We can do nothing. How can we
force a whole population to be silent?
Iu a few weeks the newly married
couple will be far away, and then
these calumnies will naturally cease." ]
"Let us hope so, Madame. But when j
I see Edmee's happiness and think of
the accusations that are made openly
It seems to me I again hear our gay
laughter at the garden party, accompanied by the distant rumblings of
the thunder."
"You are a charming girl, my dear
Jessie. But I never thought your nationality so well gifted with imagination."
"That Is another of your French
prejudices," laughed Jessie. "You see
in us only a nation of salt pork merchants, while we are, on the contrary,
a refined race and lovers not of luxury only, but of art and poetry."
Edmeo, who had been watching
them from tho garden window, ran
out into the garden and interrupted them.
"What are you quarreling about,"
she asked, laughing.
"Mine. Despois will not believe in
our artistic capacities, ai.d I am indignant."
"I should say so, my dear Jessie.
Your eyes are full of tears, and you
are quite agitated."
"Well you know���when one touches
on America���I get excited."

The Average Moo,
"The average man when be Is a
boy,' a trllio Involvcdly ruminated tbe
old codger, "decides that when he
grows up he will bo a drum major or a
bandit, triumphantly survive battles,
Shipwrecks and holocausts and gallantly protect Innocence and beauty in
distress. But the average boy when he
becomes a man finds himself so busy
satisfy lug the appetite of the always
hungry mortgage, endeavoring to
achieve but never attaining the eminence of being tho head of his own
household, chasing at the earnest solicitation of his many friends the political prominence which forever eludes
him, selecting the particular brand of
health fodder that will Injure him tbe
least, running after or away from
something or other, getting off a few
well chosen words, trying to collect or
evade that which is justly coming to
him, placating bis wife's relatives, accumulating baldness, pointing with
pride or viewing with alarm, and so on
and so forth, that before he has time to
be anything more protuberant than
oue of the ciphers of the millions that
Inhabit this land of the free his men
friends are walking slow behind him
aud saying that Bill was a pretty good
feller, but���and his women friends are
chastencdly -wondering how Boon the
widow will marry again. That's all
there Is to the average man."���Puck.
One **t*Drd'* Meanings.
English is a most remarkable language. It has some peculiarities of an
extraordinarily rich vocabulary and
others of the poorest nnd most barren
tongue, separate words for minute distinctions and single words that have
many meanings. Many examples of
both peculiarities can be found In the
Dialect Dictionary, an English publication. Every farmer's boy knows how
to use the words lamb, sheep, ewe and
ram, but how many of them would be
able to define the words tag, tup-hog,
teaser, tup-seg, tup-yeld and six tooth,
each of which fixes the age or the sex
of a sheep? For example, a tup-hog Is
a young ram before the first shearing.
On the other hand, take the word
rack. As used by people In one part
of England or another It may mean a
neck of mutton, the bones of a dead
horse, a blow, a sharp pain, a kitchen
lireiilace, part of a hand loom, a reach
In a river, a ford, a pathway, a rut, a
gap in a hedge, a Hying cloud, to pour off
liquor, to stack. These ure the unusual
meanings, and there are others more
common.���Youth's Companion.
Tbe Dime.
That neat and lovable little coin, the
dime, has had a most useful history.
As far as we are aware, It Is unique
among the world's coins, having no
nearer equivalent than the English sixpence, which Is worth 2 eents more. It
is one of the handiest of coins, being
about as small as a silver piece can
conveniently be. Being less in size and
weight than the nickel, which Is worth
only half as much, It is vastly more
convenient to keep and hoard, aud that
Is one reason why It is becoming extraordinarily scarce in spite of tbe
fact that more dimes are now turned
out of the mints than ever before in
lhe country's history. There is a rage
for "dime banks," and some of these
mechanical contrivances are bo pretty,
bo ingenious and so alluring that they
force people to save dimes who have
no earthly occasion to do so.���New

Peculiarity   of tbe  Ring;  Mountain*
of the Moon.
The moon Is really and truly a great
planet of mountains, its whole visible
surface being dotted with elevations
of curious shapes aud of extraordinary
height. We say "its whole visible surface" and hasten to explain that we
make this statement simply because
the eye of man has never seen but one
side of the surface of the moon. What
we see convinces us that the little
planet is extremely mountainous, for
on the "end" exposed to our view
there are no less than 30,000 peaks,
varying in height from 2,000 feet to
four miles. When we consider the fact
that this lunarian world Is only one
thirty-second part as large as the
earth we can easily see why It deserves the title of the "plauet of great
mountains." There Is a peculiar thing
about these 30,000 moon peaks. Each
and every one of them has a ringlike
form, the open end of tbe conical point
being of greater or lesser diameter, according to the height of the mountain.
In a low grade telescope these peaks
resemble true volcanoes, but when
viewed through a high grade glass It is
seen that the depression In the ccuter
of the queer "ring mountain" Is often
so great as to be below the general
level of the surrounding country. Tho
depth of these depressions Is calculated In a curious manner, by figuring
on the relative shadows they cast
when the sun Is shining full upon
them. The diameter of these "ring
mountains" varies greatly, some of (ho
larger ones being DO, 100 or even 150
miles, while the smaller look like post
holes when viewed through a good telescope.
Odd Devices, listed by Whirls to ICunllr
Identify Hhkuukc.
A curious fashion of marking trunks
by some Individual and odd device has
come Into practice. It is a trick that
helps to Identify one's baggage instantly, even at a distance, in a crowded
railway station, and (bus facilitates
travel, especially abroad, where so
much red tape entangles baggage
Some of the devices used are queer,
to say the least. A lover of dogs had
big brindle's heads In brown and white
painted at intervals on all her trunks
and suit cases before sailing for Germany. She felt sure, she said, that
she would be able to Identify her baggage anywhere by these signs.
Another curious design is that of
skull and crossboues, done In black,
white and red, on top, sides and ends
of trunk and on the bottom of every
bag of one traveler.
Dumbbell designs In red, white and
blue Identify another lot of baggage.
One society woman has her trunks
all marked with a design of a pair of
gloves, painted red, black and gold,

Clock Inscription*.
In former times it was the custom of
clockmakers to Inscribe on tbe dial
plates of their clocks quaint verses,
one of the most common being the following:
I serve thee here with all my might
To tell the hours, by day, by nlgbt.
Therefore example take by me
To serve thy God as I serve thee.
Another   favorite   Inscription   was
"Tempus Pugit," ut "Time Piles," and
thereby hangs a tale.   A well known
English clockmaker who flourished toward the close of the last century, on
being asked by a customer whether a
certain clock was of home manufacture,
replied: "Oh, certainly.   Don't you see
the name, shs-Tammns Puglt?  I often

Travelers Want th. Wbla.
One of the signs of the day Is the revival of the old-time demand for the
Bible as an adjunct to the hotel bedroom. Ten or twelve years ago every
room In a hotel of any pretension had
a Bible on Its bureau. Then It was
the practice of most hotels to Include a Bible In the list of necessary
furniture. Gradually the people who
were back of the enterprise lost Interest and the books disappeared. It now
seems that many persons, particularly
commercial travelers, comp'a'n of missing them. Frequently they read a chapter before going to bed Just to drive
away the blues, but now they never
get a chance to look Inside a Bible. One
Toronto hotelkeeper has realized th"
need for a revival, and has given an order for several dozen Bibles. "It shall
not be said that anj- man stopping at
my house Is driven to perdition for the
want of a Bible" is the way in which
he puts It.

Wind slpcome* of Ship* Which  Sink
to   the  Bottom  of   the  Sen.
What becomes of the ship (hat sinks
iu uiidoceou? If it is of wood It take's,
in the first ploce, considerable time for
it to reach the bottom. In a hundred
or more fotboms of water a quarter of
un hour will elapse before the ship
reaches bottom. It sinks slowly, and
when the bottom is reached it foils
gently into the soft, oozy bed, with no
I crash or breakiug.
Of course If it Is laden with pig iron
or corresponding substauces or if it is
on iron ship It sinks rapidly and sometimes strikes the bottom with such
force as to smash in pieces. Once
sunken a ship becomes tbe prey of tbe
countless inhabitants of tbe ocean.
They swarm over and through the
great boot and moke It their homo.
Besides this tbey cover every Inch of
the boat with a thick layer of lime.
This takes time, of course, nnd when
one generation dies another continues
the work until finally the ship Is so
loden with heavy Incrustations, corals,
sponges and barnacles that If wood
the creaking timbers foil apart and
slowly but surely are absorbed in the
waste nt tbe sea bottom.
Iron vessels are demolished more
quickly thiin those of wood, which
may last for centuries. The only metals that withstand the chemical action
of the waves are gold and platinum,
and gloss also seems unaffected. No
matter how long gold may be hidden
In the ocean, It will always be gold

searches after hidden submarine treasures lost In shipwrecks.

St. Helena was a barren volcanic

however, to stay and for duty, and,
though they had a hard scramble for
every drop of water Ihey used, they
set about a beginning of making something grow toward sustaining life, or
at least modifying its conditions.
Gradually, by slow degrees, but surely,
their efforts were successful. Kiudly
nature requires but little encouragement, and the dews fell aud crystallized, und the herbage aud shrubbery
spread, and little trees took root aud
shed their seed, and tlie mouutaiu In
tbe luug course of years became largely covered, until at lost this oue time

lifeless volcano became able to provide

was twelve to twenty feet high at various poiuts, eight feet thick at the top
and provided with a gallery in the rear
which enabled its defenders to take
their stand with only head aud shoulders visible to the enemy. At every
quarter of a mile there was a castle
with a garrison of troops. Beacon

The Story of the Prayer In Uosxlni'-
"Mo*C   In   E��ltto."
The sublime prayer of the Hebrews,
when preparing to cross the Ked sea,
is, perhaps, oue of the most solemn
and majestically gfand compositions
that can be found iu the choral repertory, yet, at the same time, simple to
a degree. This was an afterthought
of the composer and was not introduced until the second seasou of the
production of* "Mose In Egitto" at Naples.
The opera then, as now, terminated
with the passage of the Bed sea by
lhe Israelites; but, although tbe audiences were entranced with the music,
they Invariably saluted the passage of
the Red sea with peals of laughter,
owing to want of skill of the machinist and sccue painter, who contrived
to render this portion of the affair superbly ridiculous and brought down
the curtain amid uproarious mirth.
Rossini exhibited bis usual indifference, but poor Tot tola, the poet, was
driven nearly crazy by this unwelcome termination of his literary labors and Intensely chagrined at the
idea of so sacred a subject exciting
laughter. This lasted throughout tbe
first season; the next It was reproduced with similar brilliant success
(on tho first night), for the music, and
similar laughter at the end of the opera. Tho next day, while Rossini was
Indulging In his usual habit of lying
In bed and gosslpiug with a room full
of friends,' In rushed Tottola, In a most
excited state, crying out:
"Eviva, I have saved the third act!"
"How?" asked Rossini lazily.
"Why," replied Tottola, "I have
written a prayer for the Hebrews before crossing the dreadful Red sea,
and I did It all In one hour."
"Well," said Rossini, "If it has taken
you an hour to write this prayer I will
engage to make the music for It In a
quarter of the time. Here, give mo
pen and Ink," saying which he jumped
out of bed, and in ten minutes he had
composed the music without tho aid
of a piano and while his friends were
laughing and talking around bim.
Thus, owing to the blundering Ignorance of a stage carpenter and scene
painter, the world is indebted for the
most sublime preghlera ever penned.
Night came. The audience prepared
to laugh as usual when the lied sea
scene came, but when the new prayer
commenced deathy silence prevailed,
every note was listened to with rapt
attention,- and ou Its conclusion the
entire audience rose en masse and
cheered for several minutes, nor did
they ever again laugh at the passage
of the Red sea.

Mr. Arnold the disappointment was
considerable for his duties as a

refused to be comforted when a sympathetic M.P. said: "You wouldn't
have liked fotching and carrying for
the Philistines of tho Parliamentary
middle class." To this Arnold only
replied: "Oh, you don't know me.

In order to prove Its power of discriminating between colors the scientist Dahl made some iuterestlng tests
upon a monkey. He colored some
sweets with a certain colored dye and
some bitter substances with that of
another color. After a few attempts
the monkey learned to leave without
even tasting those articles of food colored with the dye which indicated bitter tasting substances and seized at
once upon those which indicated
sweets. Varying the experiments sufficiently he found that the monkey distinguished all the different colors readily, save only dark blue. Many savage
tribes cannot distinguish dark blue
from black and even children distinguish this color later than all others.
Robespierre ef the French revolution, the man who was destined to
deluge France with blood, was not

While he was still an obscure advocate at his native Arras he threw up
nn appointment because of his opposition to this form of penalty. Aud
Just wheu his star was In the aseond-
and he boldly harangued the national
assembly to prove "that the punishment of death Is essentially unjust,
that It has no tendency to repress
crimes and that it multiplies offenses
much more than It dimluishes them."
