HEFORX OF THE MINING LAW,  Ttwcurredtdus last season tbat after #ie  Important reforms in the Mining Law, originating with ibe Chief ^Commissioner and passed  at tbe last session of Parliament, that For a  time at least we mrgtrt adopt the reit-arid-be-  thankffcl poHcy; but we are now convinced  that stagnation is decay, *cd if we would  maintain the proud positfon we have hitherto  held we.mnsk adapt onr taws to' ear altered  circumstances, and by a wiee ami prudent  liberality offer such inducements to prospec-  ���������ors that their probable gains may becommen  eurate with their actual outlay. We ore  prompted .to. this idea by observing the  enormous expenditure incurred by some  mining companies in. simply, prospecting a  claim with nothing but surface indications.  and perhaps discoveries in the neigliborbood.  to warrant their outlay. One comgwwry on  Lightning creek has already expended about  $30,000 in prospering 1500 feet of ground���������  an expenditure altogether disproportioned to  tbe result, even if It should equal the most  sanguine expectations. In the case referred  to, such an expense would never have been  incurred but for the known richness of tbe  creek wherever companies"have Huuueeu������u\ib  wcrkfog the deep channel. .It is in vain to  expect miners to disburse such sums to prospect one hundred feet of ground on creeks  not so well known, but likely to fee quite as  rich.   ���������     .    .', 7...,.'..  All our easily worked grbund has been  tried and in most instances worked oat, and  the oldest Ciiribooite knows not where, to try  bis hand on a easily prospected spot.   This  begets a spirit already visible' and growing  fast with miners to locate merelhan 100 feet  1o the maniaridali the well known expedients  ������re adopted to attain that end. -It would be  far better if larger sections of mining ground,  of the character of that referred to, were allowed to be located in a legitimate manner,  fiecuring the claim to tbe pre-eraptor when a  certain amount of work has been performed  in a given time, or an equivalent amount of  Machinery placed upon the ground. It would,  ���������of course, be necessary to guard carefully  against looking up our mineral lands in the  hands of men who would use them only for  th** purpose o? speculation. Such an alteration in the Mining Law would induce men  of moderate means to invest their money and  labor in iniiung with tbe knowledge that even  H the venture be unsuccessful the investment  was made upon a business-like principle and  with a fair chance of a profitable return.  It would be well if miners wor.Id still  further apply the well understood principles  of cooperation. A large amount of time,  money and labor would be'saved if the energies of several companies were devoted to  attaining a satisfactory result in one claim on  bu unprospected cre������k instead of frittering  away money in several different places, without ��������� any satisfactory conclusion iumaoyin-j CUMMINGS CO..

The probability is that at the next  session of the Legislature some action will be  taken in the matter, as it is one of great importance, not only to Cariboo, but to the  whole Province. ������������ur duty is performed if  we but awakea otir miners to take an interest  In the subijeet.

For twenty years or so he measured]the  breadth:, and/height, and .also tested the  :fitrength$oth of 1be arms and ioins>of his  students ; a very numerous class, consisting  of different rjatioha'lities drawn to Edinburgh  by his fame."'

Every time you turn  you will find ways and means of spending  money. Now the great art in spending is to  make every dollar sho w where it is invested.  There are so many ways of disposing of it  which never seem to give any-returns. Your  housekeepers need to learn.the art of spending well, A dollar invested in a nice, covered  dish for tlie table, a useful mat for the hall,-a  beautiful tree for the-front door yard, will  give a hundred-fold tbe pleasure that it would  in a strip of trrmraing about the hem of a  dress, or a fat chicken for the 'table'/ which  leaves you no better satisfied than if you had  dined off an inexpensive chop, . Think well  oyer, every,dime you pay out, and resolve to  put it to the best possible acoounfc. The art  of spending is even a more important one  than the art-of earning money. Tou can.gain  it by tbe spadeful and yet "fritter, ifc all away  by the spoonful. ' ���������'.:"   ': ���������'.'  . Mosquito MANTmR.--.The: Scientific American has.the following :....
