'Teinpus-Fu-  git"calls   attention   to. the* need of  greater precautious  being, taken   in  our mining work lo-avoid'accidents  which so  often  lead1 to loss of life  and' limb.   .No mining man ot any  real experience can fail to recognize  the  dangerous   manner   in   wbioh  some of the  properties   are worked  in this district..   The-most ordinary  precautions  are  often   entirely disregarded,   and it  is a wonder that  fatal accidents arenot more*frequent.-'  We are of the opinion thatithevgor-  erntiient should have a* qualified! inspector of mines stationed in the.dis-  trict.    Where  most of  the  miners  are" mere novices, and   tha-company  managers  sometimes but little belter," it is very necessary,.for the sake  o�� all   concerned,   that the government should have  surveillance, over  the mines where danger to life is involved.    Then  again, ��� the office of  inspector might   include  thaoffici'al  duty   of verifying  titles- to mining  properties..     The   inspector would  keep up-to-date plans, .showing ever}'  holding,   whether- lease,  placer-  or  quartz claim;'and- this alone would  tend to obviate th'e-continuarueoes-  slty for litigation,   the black spot on  our industry,   by which, we are advised  most of the gold winnings of  the individual miners are lost in the  expensive. payments  of'law costs.  We   do,    therefore,*, ask- those- in  whom   is   vested   authority  to give  their attention  to these urgent matters, and thereby take that which is-  passing by the forelock.  essaiily jeopardized; then, possibly,  some safeguard ma}- be found . in  investigating the cause and.effast of  every accident;-and giving publicity-,  to the same for the guidance, of  mi nets, who, perchance, are risking.'  their lives unknowingly,.  With the able but limited means-  for treating accidental cases in  the local hospital, it.seems all the  more impoutunT that a mutual effort  should be made by the authorities  and the mining community to minimize as far- as possible the causes,  which.lead to .those deplorable accir  dents.  ...__ 'Tfcmpus F'ugit.'

I stole a glance at him. He was  looking up at that great molten ball  of silverin the sky, and his thoughts  must have been high and beautiful  to judge by the soulful expression  in his eyes. I turned hastily away,  tor, as he sat there with that spiritual, distant look, he seemed so far  away from poor, commonplace me���  and I tried to choke down the tears  that came to . my eyes in spite  of myself.
