Dan McRae and Jack Nesbitt, iu a
purchase of a dozen eggs this week,
found one on which was inscribed the
information that it came from Strath*
roy, Ont., and requested the purchaser
to communicate with the shipper. Both
gentlemen wish to know the age of the
egg, and why the hatching process was
not completed before shipment * was
made. In this uncultured west, "eggs
is.eggs and chickens is chickens," and
each has its commercial value, according to the stage of development, or
period of existence. Eggs are consider-
j ed shell-fish, and chickens, after they
have commenced to chase grasshoppers,
are the lawful prey of the prospector,
the chink and the coon. Shelled chicks
are not appreciated here.
ROSSLAND   MINES

the daily average of ore crushed
here. The Spitzee mine has concluded its new treatment arrangement and will soon commence

before. The Velvet-Portland mine
now has a 50 ton addition to its
concentrator well under way. The
plant is expected to be completed
and running by the end of the year.
A great deal of ore is blocked out
in the mine and no further underground work is contempated until
the mill is finished. The miners
are laid off, but their numbers are
replaced by the construction crew.

A    DUCK'S   RECORD
A white Aylesbury duck, in the
Wiltshire village of Foxley, has
achieved a record in laying daily
from February 26th to July 13th
with one exception. The total
number of tggs laid ia that time
was 138. This duck should have
been obtained for the Nelson  Fair.
THK RIGHT  MEDICINE.
A Chinamen convicted of starting a bush fire near Vancouver
was fined $200. In Fernie a bunch
of Italians were fined $50 each for
the same offense * with the alternative of putting the fire out in
lieu of paying the cash. They put
the fire out.
SHY    KHillKfiKOOH
At   Pottsvilie,   Pa.,   recently a
wedding was   delayed   because   a
funeral  service   was   iu   progress.
The bridegroom lost courage and
fled to a neighbouring house,
whence he was sought by a party
of indignant maidens and dragged
back to the altar.
A   DEAR  DRUNK
It is dangerous to be an engineer
on the C. P R., and get drunk
while on duty. An engineer at
Regina was sentenced to two years
in the penitentiary for being intoxicated while on his engine. This
is probably the most severe sentence ever given a man far beiug
drunk, and shows that the C.P.R.
endeavors to protect its passengers
at all hazards. Of all men the man
at the throttle should always be
sober.

with one day of the week will do
no good. We must live right every
day, or else all do.vn the line of

glad to leave a sphere where ignorance has ever sought to make

About  Sunday
Under the guise largely of aiding the working man  the Lord's
Day Alliance is seeking to have a
law passed in the Dominion government placing restrictions upon the
method of living upon Sunday. The
Alliance seeks to stop all work and
recreation on Sunday, and make it
a day of rest and gloom.   The good
people evidently   think  they   are
right, but if they really want to
help the working man we will tell
them how to do it.    Cut down the
hours of labor upon every day of
the week, and teach people how to
live temperate and regular lives.
To work a reasonable number of
hours every day is far better than
to work 10 or 12 hours for six days
and spend the seventh in laziness,
over-eating, or listening to sermons
that appeal more to fancy than iea-
son.   The Alliance would have no
streetcars on Suuday.    This does
not affect the rich  man  and his
buggy.   The Alliance wants Sunday to be a close season for hunting
and fishing.   This shuts the poor
man out for the rich have time to
hunt all the week.    It wants the
saloons closed on Sunday, but says
nothing about the rich man's club.
In fact the Alliance wants everything closed on Sunday except the
churches, the preacher's mouth, and
the slit in the collection box. Their
talk about helping the laboring mau
is nearly all bosh,    Their will carried out will make him a greater
commercial slave for six days and a
listless thing without a free soul on
Sunday.    We want freedom of action upon every day of tiie year.
The compelling of people by law to
observe any day is a mistake and
contrary to nature.    Nature works
every day, and  why should man
stop?   Any mau if he wishes can
work every day of the year without
the slightest injury if he does not
work  too long.    Intemperance in
work,   eating,   sleeping,   drinking
and the sexual  functions is what

as ji general principle is a better one
than that which advises vertical shafts
and mine workings laid out with absolute mechanical accuracy, it is unwise
[01. tin! mine operator to follow the ore
so closely tnat no prospecting beyond
the walls is undertaken, says the Min-
ing find Scientific Press.     Many pood
mines have been closed down and abandoned for years, simply through the
failure to extend the work   of explora
tion beyond the walls of the vein.   Ore
shouts in veins pinch out, overlay, and
,  end out branches, and it should be the
ami of the careful mine superintendent
to keep in flight all the possibilities of
his mine, by means of properly disected
crosscuts, as   well  as  to  explore  the
Bin?le fissure in which he chances to
find a body of pay  ore.     Some   years
since  a mine   operator bonded a mine
in  the  Southwest,    pushed   develop*
ment work   expeditiously, but always
in the ore shoot, stopping work as soon
as the working! ran out of ore.   As a
result the extent of the ore   shoot   was
s Kin determined,   and  the   mine was
ili <puse I of at a price much below that
whieh had been anticipated.     A short
time     thereafter     the     disappointed
operator described the conditions found
at rhe mine, sayiog that the ore shoot
'feathered out*'oti the edges,  the  wall
nor hoinjc in sight—there being  heavy
salvage* of  clay  present     A mining
engineer   to   whom   these conditions
were described  at once gave it as his
opinion that the  ore  shoot   was only
one of a series and that another would
he found by cross cutting either to  foot
or hanging, and this proved to be the
rase, for within 6 feet a second shoot
was discovered by crosscutting   to   the
banging side, and this proved  to be
characterintic of the occurrence of ore
in that  mine.   When  a mine is first
opened, it la wise to have the  workings
follow the vein closely, but later* when
ihed-veUn'ineutof tiie vein justifies it,
it i- iil'ien economical to sink a  vertical
shaft iu the. hanging wall, which  will
intersect   the    rein    at    considerable
depth, or to sink an incline at a   uni-
1 "fm angle in either foot or  hanging
wall, preferably the latter, that the ore
might be hoisted at less expense and in
greater amount  than  through a shaft
having numerous changes of dip   and
other irregularities.

morning Gus thought he would try
the phone, so he picked up the receiver and shouted, "Hello, is dees

By divine right the clergy owe nothing to the state. It' they contribute to
its needs, it is through pure condescension. They sojourn in the state solely
to be protected, respected, remunerated;
they do the state honor enough by honoring it with their presence, aiding it
with their prayers, enlightening it wilh
their wisdom, and relieving it of i!s
money-bags.—Voltaire

imposture; to overthrow tyrannies,

0 ripest rose upon Time's topmost twig!
Mo^t mellowed monarch of  a   wide,
wide bloom!
Harvest is ready, and the yellow rig
Bends with each ear a heavy   quickened womb.
Why shouldst thou weep? A wiser from
thee springs
To feather forth a more unerring dart.
Thy   illusion   is    accomplished,
here is death;
Rest thou in   peace,  and  bid   young,

Blaze forth another self, a stronger

To hand to other years life's borrowed breath.

When multitudes of citizens belonging to the classes distinguished as "the
better" make a hero of a politician
whose soh* aim throughout life was success, regardless of principle, and have
even established an annual commemoration of him, we are obliged to infer
that the prevailing sentiments are not
of a very high order, Nothing approaching to adoration is called forth bv
those who, on the death of a youth who
went to help in killing Zulus with
whom he had no quarrel, and all that
he might increase his chance of play
ing despot over the French,thought him
worthy of high funeral honors—would,
many of them, indeed, have given him
the highest. No feeling of reverence
arises in one's mind on thinking of people who looked on with approval or
tolerance when a sa lor of fortune who
has hired himself nut to an eastern
tyrant to slay at the word of command
was honored here by a banquet. A
public opinion which recognizes no
criminality iu wholesale homicide, so
long as it is committed by a constituted
po itical authority, no matter bow vih>,
or by its foreign hired agent, is a public opinion which excites, in some at
any rate, an emotion nearer to contempt than to adoration—Herbert
Spencer.
