Thursday  afternoon Conroy returned lo Allin,  making a round trip. Could not a  letter mail be arranged ovcr the  same route?

Few people are aware of the  water they pay for. For instance-:  A ten-pound turkey is but three  pounds solid and seven pounds water, and there is six pounds of water  in ten pounds of pork, while the  percentage ol water in beef or mutton is about the same. Salmon and  mackcral are half water, though  many other fish ���contain a greater  proportion of fluids. Sixty-five per  cent of an egg is water, and there  are about two ounces of water to-  one pound of butter. Vegetables  run from forty to eighty per cent of  water, and even dried ,peas contain  a small percentage of liquid matter..  Taken at an average, fifty-five percent of all expenditures for food is  paid for water.

Man that is born of his parents is  of few days and full pf microbes.  He goeth to school when a youngster and gets the seat of his pants  paddled for something he didn't do,  until he is sick at heart. He grpw-  eth up like a weed in a back yard,  and soon reaches the age when he  is composed largely of feet, freckles  and an appetite for pie. About the  time   he   gels   too  long   for short  and his dependent population ont of  the poor house.     His efforts-arc rewarded'by having his daughteis run  off and get married and bring him  home a nice ornamental scn-in-law  to  feast al  the family board.    His  sons  grow   up and call him governor  and  set  him   back  a five-spot  every day or two.    About the time  he   has   acquired   enough   lucre   lo  make it worth while for his heirs to  quarrel   over,   he  contracts  a cold  and   is   hurried away before he has  time lo have a talk with his family.  His sons blow   iu  the estate on bad  whiskey   and   a ,'good time.'    His  ivife  puts   the   finishing touches to  the situation   by   marrying her first  and   only   love.

Can you  not see? You caught your husband  with honey and you cannot keep  him with vinegar. The outside of  the house is the only side which in-  truth belongs to a hen-pecked husband. They take to the outside so  speedily when there is unpleasantness within, 'thai any woman with  only a little thought and observation may know what will come ot  trying lo train a husband as she  would a fractious school-boy.  We have seen women who have  apparently enjoyed scolding their  husbands in the presence of others,  and we have seen mothers who indiscreetly punish their children before visitors, thus humiliating the  dear wayward ones and making  them feel that their reputations  were so damaged that there was no  use in trying to be good.  Such women are not the mistresses of those homes where the household machinery glides on with  noiseless ease without force or  effect seeming to be required to  move il along. They do not create  tlie sunny, cheerful firesides that  men love better than all the world  beside, and lhc memory of which  children tenderly cling to as long as  life lasts.  ��s   of Lager  Beer  ass��  Porter.

Verily it is  a trying season for the, male bird.  A story is told by an explorer of  a large and fierce South American  spider which chases men if th'cy  come loo near its lurking places.  On one occasion he was chased by  one. "Hiding at an easy trot over  the dry giass, I observed a spider  chasing me, leaping swiftly along  and keeping up wilh my beast. I  aimed a blow with my whip, and  the point of the lash struck the  ground close to il, when it instantly  leaped upon and ran up the lash  and was actually within three or  four inches of my hand 'when I  flung the whip from me." This is  a pretty good story, but a little hard  to swallow.  :���;, ��� Tp!do tlie right thiiig;at'the'fight  .tiiue is allVright; enough. /^The difficult y'Vii*,; to;ljot,do Alie wrong 'filing  iluyV old ; time.V /-For,: if you doAio  wrongi you .must be right.v  .-���': If a: man lies,;,and;says he lies, he  tells the inJlii:: : is : liefi liar?": A; A'/  . .TIicVuiii,u.; .whoV can, .but doesn't..

Wc cannot but coiigratuhilc the  creek ,011 its behavior during the  past week. Old-timers, judging  from the amount of snow in the  hills and the late season, prophesied  a record high water, and wc have  daily been expecting lo be .swept to  Atliii lake, together with our household goods. As though wishing to  prove what an untruthful person a  water prophet is, Spruce has shown  no signs of going on the warpath,  although an immense volume of  water has been running off for almost two weeks.  A big slide from the Spruce Creek  Power Company's ditch occured  last week, which luckily did no  damage beyond sweeping aw<iy part  of the flume owned by Lambert and  Kearus.  Mrs. Callaghan was 'At Home'  on Saturday evening last to her layman and other friends, to celebrate  a birthday. A most enjoyable  evening was spent by all present.  The singing and dancing was kept  up till the small hours iu Ihe morning. Messrs. Kruger, McConachie,  and Smallwood supplying tlie music  in their usual able style, while 'Big  Jack' stands unsurpassed as a mas-,  ter of ceremonies.  A short lime ago the Rev. A. M.  Ross, accompanied by Mrs. Ross  and Miss Blythc, held service iu  Mr. Ole Helgren's cabin.

UOURNIi, Si-chktahv.  congregation was present to enjoy  Mr. Ross' short but appropriate address. If the talent obtainable on  the creek could be cultivated a choir  might'be lormcri, which, we feel  convinced, would rival either Atliii  or Discovery.  Very lew of the miners have been  able to sluice during last week, owing to the fact that the creek has  cut down to such an extent as to  leave the intakes high and dry.  Mr. A. Chester has had high  water iu his cabin lately, and finding such a state of affairs monotonous, he proposes to build a scow  and place his bunk thereon and be  'rocked in the cradle df the deep,'  with no limit but the roof. It is  perhaps, superfluous to add, that,  with all due respect to Mr. Chester,  this idea of an ark in the time of  flood, is by no means original.  An eminent divine once said that  the only lime lie felt inclined to  break the third commandment was  when his shoe string broke. If the  reverend gentleman had been in the  same predicament ns an employee  of Cox & Miller was a few days ago  he .would have had a reasonable excuse for profuse and piolane speech.  .Some duffer had put a rock iu the  car that would not go through the  door, and it was too heavy for one  man to lift. The whistle had gone.  The commandment was shattered,  the rock, and the car likewise; and  the reputation .of the engineer simply annihilated. Someone had better look out.  I'Yank Wallace had a piece cut  off one of his big toes, by Dr. Mc-  Coukey, at the hospital, last -Wednesday. The operation was not of  a very serious nature, and we look  to see I'Yank out again iu a short  time.  o  o  J- V,'  7"~  BARBER SHOP.  THOMPSON, lUANAGIil*..
