Turning to' one of his clerks one  day the grocer said: "Billy, go  down to the mine on the flat, where  that young , fellow Heinze is working and sec what kind of ore he has  mined." Tht: clerk came back and  reported that Heinze had a beautiful  bunch" of ore on the dump. The  grocer swore out an attachment and  sent it down by a "deputy sheriff to  levy ou his ore. "The deput5r came  down to the shaft, saw Heinze, and  said he would be back iu half an  hour wilh some wagons. As soon  as his back was'turned Heinze'lean-  ed over the shaft and shouted to his  partner: "Oh, Jack, come up at  once!" When his partner 'got on  top "Heinze said: "Now, pitch in  and work as yon never worked before." The two' men, by a Herculean . effort, moved the ore and  filled the platform with waste rock.  None but a thoroughly trained  miner can tell the differeuce.between  ofe and waste. When the 'deputy  sheriff cauie'down with his. carts he  proceeded to-, load them up with  waste and carted it off to the smelter. A week later the grocer telephoned the smelter and asked what  returns were coming from the  Heinze ore. "Returns?" came the  reply. "Why,' you've sent us the  blankety-blankest lot of waste that  lies out of doors! We've got a big  bill against you for smelting  charges!"     ���  Three months-later, when he was  ready, Heinze paid the grocer his  account.

Geo. A. MacAnlay, of Discovery,  while attending a sick horse last  week had the end of one of his fingers bitten -off by the animal. He  came to town and Dr. McNeill  dressed the injured member, which  is mending nicely. George informed  us that he expected that the horse  would die shortlj-.
