Formerly there were mints for the  coinage' of money iu almost every  county in Great Britain." 'Besides  the sovereign, barons, bishops and  the main monasteries exercised the  right of coining. From William the  Conqueror's time the greatest part  of the coining in- Great Britain, was  done in London, but it was not till  the reign of William III. that .all  the provincial mints were abolished.  The present mint on Tower 'Hill in  London was erected in 1812. The  London mint supplies the whole of  the coinage of the British empire,  except :Australia , and the East  Indies, which are supplied from  branch mints .in "Sydney, Perth,  Calcutta'and Bombay.  The mints of the United States  are .at Philadelphia, which was established in 1772, aiid therefore the  oldest of the mints; at San Francisco, established in 1853; al Denver, established-"]862, aud at' New  Orleans', established in 1S35. The  mint at Carson City, Nev., was established in 1869, but was closed in  1S93, doubtless never -to re-open.  The fate of the Carson City mint  will likely ere long overtake "the  one at New Orleans.  At a recent political meeting in  New York a candidate yelled  "What is the one thing that we of  this community are suffering most  from at this time?" There was a  silence and then a man with, a big,  deep voice, said "bed bugs."���"Fear  of host bits" would bean appropriate answer to a like question iu this  camp at present.  sr**anWM*iK-w,>/imK*N  xmrmar'JK ru m��gg.Twrayco*g  ���"���jSTTOTrCI'* IS IlliKKIIY Given Hint im up-  -t-^ plication will be made to the; Legislative Ah.senilil.v of tlio Province of llritish  Columbia nt its next, session for tut Act to  incorporate n..

W.M.  ���   The- citizens ofAtli-ii were sadly-  shocked oil Thursday night \(-ficii it  was   made  known   that   Mr". K.'J.  :Thai.n had' died; suddenly from heart  failure a.t his Third street   residence  at about 9 p.m.    At about S.3<) Mr.  Tliain called at Mr. Owen's (where  he had' promised tc* attend  a "social  gathering on that evening) a;iid   informed'Mrs. Owen that, nof-feeling-  very well," he- woudct'go lo his'own  house next door and rest for a-'wbile  and would return later in the  even-'  :ing.     Mr." R.   13'."Anderson, ' ivho  lived with Mr. Thain, and who was  a guest at the Owen residence, went  ihome to ascertain the extent of Mr.  Phalli's   indisposition   and. shortly  after his arrival there the sick" man  became   worse.      Miss    Mc'fav'ish,  matron   of St.. Andrew's- hospital,  and. Walter Owen called abotitS.45  to   enquire   of   the   sick   man and  while   they were   present ��� the "old  gentleman  leceiveel .his last attack.  Mr. Owen immediately called in Dr.  H.   B. -Cameron'   and- Kev..,-F. L.  Stephenson-,, both of whom were:at  his residence, but in spite of all efforts  the stricken man continued to'sitvk,  passing   away at   the hour stated.  Among his last words addressed  to  Mr. Owen he:'said', ''Too bad." It's  too   bad"���evidently meaning that  his  death would dis-perse the'social  gathering   at   his   neighbor's   residence;  and right here we must say  that his last   words   and   meaning  w&re a- truesaua.pleo-E's  unselfish  and  good-hearted nature.  Those   assembled - at    Mr.  Owen's  were  immediately 'informed 'of-the  death- and   they   due  respect to their departed friend. .���<:���.
