Fenno & Co.  fOf course Captain Wood was being  kidnaped and carried off. I reckoned  tliat up on the spot,'and gathered myself- together then and there to givo  ,<ebase to the cab.   I followed it steadily  morning and  B7e was seeing two ladies to their cdrriaae.  , down tbe Kensington road, losing- my  distance, of course, very fast. By the  time.I reached High street I,had lost  the cab. ��������� *  But a man, at.an early coffee stall  bad <seen it pass,  holding straight ou  Ihe main road toward Holland House.  -    '1 heard of it again at St.  Mary Ab-  - *ott's terrace, and was told that It bad  -\ 'turned  up Addison  road.' , I  traced   it  ���������' , 'by Holland  road  to Shepherd's   Bush  "Green, and there a herring'uvas drawn  across the scent.'  -���������was on the track "now of two rjibs.  lone going by  the Slieplii'i-d's  Hush  or  ,   XJxbridge road, tbe other by tin- sian-j.

There were  , very  few people about at  this  early  ;i_our,  only (,the policemen,    aud   they  -ooked very shy at my tramp's clothes,  ' igivin'g no answer.    At last a couple of  ���������-decent' farm folk bringing in milk told  ���������-sue they had passed a hansom with a  worn horse on the far side of Hain-  ������2_ersmith  bridge,   in  the    district    of  Barnes.  By the time I reached the Strathallan  iroadit was broad daylight    I found  ���������_. long road of detached villa houses,  , each  in   its  own garden,   many   with  -stables adjoining.    I figured it out, as  I walked up and down this road twice,  that one  of these  cottages   was  just  ���������suited for the purpose of sequestrating  Captain   Wood,   if ��������� he  could ��������� be    got  /to it.   He could be driven straight into  the stable yard; the cab would be no  more seen when the coach house door  -^closed behind him, and no one, neither  the neighbors nor the police, would be  -a bit the  wiser as to what mischief  was being worked inside.  It took me just two hours to examine  the entrance gates of every villa house  with stables in that road. In three  ���������of them there were the new tracks of  wheels marked plainly in the thick  iying, summer dust. ��������� 1 could not dis-  ���������cover which were the most recent, but  ���������I carefully noted the numbers of these  ���������liouses, meaning to put a watch upon  them all.  I called.up the boy Joseph Vialls, a  very smart young squire, too. from  the office in Norfolk street, as soon as  I could get a telegram through. By  . ithe time he arrived I had narrowed my  ���������investigations to a single point for  ���������further observation.  The da j-   had   so  far advanced  that  ���������Ihe business of life was well begun.    I  -saw the blinds drawn up in two of the  ihouses,   the  front  doors  opened,   the  -women  helps busy shaking  the  mats  . and  washing down tbe stoops.    Presently some of the young folks ran out  into tho gardens, and I could see the  family gatherings round the breakfast  tables, from which on the early morning air came the smell of hot coffee and  English    breakfast   bacou,    with    the  temptation of Tantalus for a starving  iiuan 'who bad been .out all night.    All  ���������this   while   the   third   house   remained  ^closed,   hermetically   sealed.     It   was  ������������������closed up, tight shuttered, not a sign  -of life in it.- When I reached my lodgings   in  Norfolk   street  I  was  pretty  ���������-well washed out.    But I turned in for  ran. hour and at 10 a.  m. woke much  refreshed.    As I  dressed with care I  ^pondered   deeply - over    this    business  and   the course  that  I   should adopt.  _fy first and most urgent duty was to  ' secure the release of Mr. Wood, always  supposing that my gentleman was tbe  ijperson actually carried off in the cab.  .At present f bad no certainty of this,  :<only a bit more than strong suspicion.  Yet if  I could ascertain that he had  ���������not returned  home I should  be justi-  -iied in taking surmise for fact.  First I went to Clarges street. The  man there remembered me, but looked  strangely when I inquired for Capita Wood.  "You have not heard the news, then?"  he said.  "What in thunder is there to hear  more than 1 have to tell you?" I asked,  nettled at thinking some one was.before me. '  '���������Why. that the captain has met with  an accident. He slipped up somehow,  last night or early this  hurt himself badly."  "Who told you that story? Do you  believe it?"  "1 believe the captain's own handwriting." r  "What did he say exactly?" I was  quite .taken aback., as you may suppose, but did not want to.show it too  much.  "Here, read it for yourself. It's not  all his own. of course, and you will understand why. But that's his name at  the bottom there sure enough."  It was written on good gray note paper In a fair running baud, and it said:  Savory, I've come to grief driving- home.

''What   In  the  name  of  conscience  d'ye mean?   What's 'appened to'him,  then?"

Evan Jones bent over him  and said:  "Don't cry about Billy. You did all  you could to save him, and you were  nearly gone when I found you and  brought you out: We both had a narrow, shave, and so did the other fellows! and we all owe our lives to you.

"Oh, no, I didn't," answered the  colonel quickly. "I was shot at An-  tietam.' A bullet went through my  nose, taking the gristle out."

The  management announced to-day that  more, attention will be'paid this year  to the requirements of live stock exhibitors: Each stable - will be provided with two, stalls for feed and  storage purposes, and accomodation  has been arranged in each< stable for  men, who find it necessary to remain  'always with their stock. Great interest is 'being-manifested -by live  stock breeders across the border in  the big'cattle show 'in connection  with the Industrial,"and fancy cattle  and horses will be brought 'in from  several states. The large prices offered has no doubt started this interest.  The speeding events, particularly  the free-for-all, which is for a purse  of $3,500, has also awakened interest  in-American sporting circles and a  number-of horses from the other side  will be entered for the most, important events.  While the exhibition management  is. very .modest in regard to the great  scope of the Fair, this year, enough  has been given out in regard to it  to convince the most conservative  that it: will eclipse- all former exhibitions, both in the. attractions and  in 'the amount of money expended.  The   special   attractions   are, sufficiently  sensat i o n al.    a nd  origi nal     to  attract   thousands   who .would  probably not^" visit, the    Fair for the ordinary   displays     and   exhibits.

There were  very  few  people about at this  early  (ti_our,  only  the policemen,   and,, they  -looked very shy at my tramp's clothes,  *���������' .giving no answer.   At last a couple of  ���������-decent farm folk bringing in milk told  r-������ne they had passed a hansom with a  <���������   worn ��������� horse on the far side of Ham-  -mersmith   bridge,   in  the    district   of  Barnes.  By the time I reached the Strathallan  road-it was broad daylight.    I found  -a. long road of detached villa houses,  each  in  its   own garden,   many   with  -stables adjoining.   I figured it out, as  I walked up and down this road twice,  that one  of - these  cottages  was  just  -suited for the purpose of'sequestrating  -Captain  Wood,   if  he could    be   got  "to it.   He could be driven straight into  the stable yard; the cab would be no  more seen, when the coach house door  -closed behind him, and no one, neither  the neighbors nor the police, would be  -a bit the  wiser as to what mischief  ���������was being worked Inside.  It took me just two hours to examine  the entrance gates of every villa house  with stables in that road. In three  -of them there were the new tracks of  wheels marked plainly in the -thick  , 'lying summer dust. ��������� I could not dis-  'cover which were the most recent, but  ���������I carefully noted tin- numbers of these  .bouses, meaning to put a watch upon  -them all. ~  I called.up the boy Joseph Vialls, a  very   smart  young  squire,   too.   from  the office in Norfolk street, as soon as  I   could  get a telegram   through.     I>y  'the time" he arrived i had narrowed my  ���������investigations   to  a  single    point    for  _urther observation.  < '  The day  had  so  far advanced  that  the business of life was well begun.   I  .'saw the blinds drawn up in two of the  , ^houses,   the   front  doors   opened,   the  -women helps busy shaking the  mats  mud washing down the stoops.    Presently some of the young folks ran out  into the gardens.- and I could see the  family gatherings round the breakfast  tables, from which on the early rnorn-  iug air came the smell of hot coffee and  Knglish    breakfast,    bacon,    with    the  temptation of Tantalus-for a starving  miaa who had been out all night.    All  this   while  the  third   house   remained  ���������closed,   hermetically  sealed.     It    was  ���������closed up, tight shuttered,  not a sign  ���������of life in it.-When I reached my lodgings  in   Norfolk -street  I   was   pretty  well washed out.    But I turned in for  hour and at 10 a. m.v woke much  "You have not heard the news, then?"  he said.  "What In thunder is there to hear  more than I have to tell you?" I asked,  nettled at- thinking some one was-be-  fore me.  "Why. that the captain has met with  an accident. He slipped upr, somehow  last night or early this morning and  hurt himself badly."  "Who told you that s'tiory? Do you  believe It?"  "1 believe the captain's own handwriting."  , "What did he say exactly?" I' was  .quite' taken aback, as you may suppose, but did not w*ant to show it too  much.  "Here, read it for yourself. It's not  all his own, of course, and you will understand why. But that's his name at  the bottom there sure enough."  It was written(ou good gray note paper in a fair running hand, and it said:  Savory, I've come to grief 'driving home.

He slipped off Billy's back and dashed from one opening into another,  straining his eyes to see any faint  glimmer of light. He found himself  coughing and knew that the heading  was gradually filling with the smoke,  yet he had not found trace of the men.  He cried in his vexation and then  shouted in the utter vainness of his  efforts. His eyes and his throat were  begining to smart again, and his  breath was short. He stuffed his  handkerchief in his mouth, but the relief was slight. Once or twice he had  to stop and lean against the roue-h rib i  i  of the heading,-but he, stumbled'on  again. Then almost as he fell into an  opening he saw light. Gathering' all  his strength, he raised his voice in a  long shout.   There came an answer.  "Hurry!   Danger!"  Then they came with a rush. ' There  was no need to ask questions. The  workings were already filling with  xnoke, and the men dropped everything and ran. One by one they passed  Paddy.

They are not altogether a thing- of the  past.

Atone of the reunions of the Army  .of the-Cumberland1,several former officers of the Union army fell to discussing the wounds the3' had received  during the civil war. At last, one of  their number turned to Colonel B., a  tall, fine, soldierly looking man, who  had remained silent during the discussion, and said:  "Well, colonel, you seem.to be the  only one of the party who escaped uninjured."  "Oh, no, I didn't," answered the  colonel quickly. "I was shot at An-  tietam.' A bullet went through , my  nose, taking the gristle out."

The  management announced    to-day that  more attention will be paid this year  to the requirements of live stock exhibitors:    Each    stable   -will be provided  with  two  stalls  for feed     and  storage purposes,   and  accomodation  has been arranged in each stable for  men who  find it necessary to remain  always  with  their stock.    Great    interest  is     being-manifested    by live  stock breeders across the border    in  the    big,'cattle    show  in connection  with the Industrial, "and fancy cattle  and  horses   will ,be  brought 'in   from  several states.    The large    prices offered  has   no   doubt started  this  interest.  The speeding events, particularly  the free-for-all, which is for a purse  of S3,500, has also awakened interest  in. American sporting circles and a  number of horses from the other side  will be entered for the most important events.  While the exhibition management  is very modest in regard to the great  scope of the Fair, this year, enough  has been given out in regard to it  to convince -themost conservative  that it will eclipse all former exhibitions, both in the. attractions and  in the amount of money expended.  The, special   attractions   are ��������� su/lic-  iently sensational     and  original     t'o  attract   thousands^ who   would   probably not visit the     Fair for the ordinary   displays     and   exhibits.    Thc  management'.has secured the  .labour  Oriental,   Carnival,   Circus  and Man-  agerie Co.,  which includes one of the  best and most completely trained animal shows on the    continent.      .labour will bring to Winnipeg ten separate   and   distinct  shows,   under '   a  spread     of  canvas   325 x 625   "feet.  The fireworks  this season will prove  to be thc    best    spectacular production ever offered patrons of the Fair.  "Thc  Burning   of  Moscow"   will     be  graphically shown,   and the management has  gone     to   large expense to  have it perfect in every detail.  ,     .     ,    "SHAKE HANDS WITn ME."

"How could the carrier  have disposed of those letters, and at  what office could j-'our boy have called?  Well, well, but it's lucky I came in. I  must speak to my secretary about this  matter. I'm not paying him $100 a  week to throw, bills rendered into the  < wastebasket. You must have thought  I didn't want to pay?"  "Yes. I thought you a deadbeat,"  was the honest reply.  "Dear me, but see how you have  wronged me! Yes, it must have looked  that way to you even when I was  drawing checks for others of from $5,-  000 to $10,000 each.

"I hadn't heard of it," replied the hatter, becoming somewhat interested, but  determined to have that $2.50 before  the major left the store.  "I see you haven't, or you wouldn't  think I was dodging a debt of $2.50.  Can you cash a certified check for $21,-  2S0.73?"  "Of course not; but you must have a  few dollars in cash about you.''  "Not a dollar, as it happens; but you  can run over to the bank with me after  wq have finished our talk. I am glad  I found you alone. Can you guess why  I came in here?"  "I guess it was by accident," smiled  the hatter.  . "My dear boy, but you will have your  joke." replied the major as he slapped  bim  on  the  back.

Excuse me. but that bat looks  as if it would fit me.   Ah. but it is a fit  ���������a  perfect  fit!    As  I   was  saying,   I  wTanted to be able to tell you all about  it."

"The greatest thing on earth, and the  idea is all my own.    My dear boy, do  you know what'the pffoct of electricity'  is on'the human body?"  "ll's good.

Time after  time tho minister had vainly appealed  to his people to contribute more generously to the funds of the church.   The  members would Indeed give something,  but it was nearly always the smallest  silver coin of the realm that was placed on the plate.   A shrewd Scotchman  , who had recently come to the place and  joined the church was not long in no-  .   ticinsr this state of affairs, .and a remedy soon suggested itself to his practical  mind.  "I'll tell you what." he said to one of  ,    the officials, "if you mak* me treasurer  I'll engage to double the .collection in  ' 'three mouths."  Ills offer was promptly accepted, and,  sure enough,  the collections began to  .increase until by the time he had slated they were nearly twice as much as  formerly.  \    "How   have'  you   managed   it.

Lewis.]  Mrs. Bowser and tlie cook worked  over Mr. Bowser for two hours after  his adventure, with the bumblebees,  - and he put in the, whole day sitting  around .with his head and hands in  poultices. During tho forenoon; before  his pains . had , abated, no questions  were asked him, but after dinner, when  his interest hi life scemc-d to have revived a littlo, Mrs. Bowser said:  "I can't make out,how it happened.  Did you walk Into a nest of bumblebees?"  "Woman, do you take me for an idi7  o ot?   I saw through tho whole thing in  ���������  a  minute. ' I  was out  here,for  my  health.    I  was beginning to  find  the  pure air and the seclusion doing) me  good.    Yon  wanted to  go home;  and  you put up a job on me."  "But how did I know about the bum-,  blebees?" she protested.     , '  .  ,  "Never mind-how you knew.'   It was  a .deep laid plot' to  bring  about  my  ,  death,  your sixteenth  attempt to  assassinate mo, but it failed'. , But for  ' your.bloodth'irstiness I might havecon-  , scnted to return home when my weight  had increased 10'or'lD pounds, but now  I'll bo hanged if I'"don't stay right here  ,- till 1 weigh a ton!"  '  'It was no use to argue further.- The  day passed slowly and quietly by. aud  night camov   Mr. Bowser grew better  'liatured, and as he\sat in the door ho  melted enough to say;       /',,'    ,    ���������  ���������'  "By  George, but -what an ��������� evening!  At this hour in the city there's noise  t enough to.nrouse the dead, while Tiere  there's  a softness and  stillness  positively   entrancing.     No   wonder   that  farmers live to he 200 years old."  The crickets ' sang, the tree toads  chattered, and the. night birds' called*  to each other over ,the huckleberry  bushes. 'By and by ,it came bedtime,  and the. house was quiet.'" Tho first interruption came from the owl of the  night before. Tie wasn't satisfied with  bis previous effort,-though he had done  "BY GEOH-GE, BUT WHAT AN EVENING i"  fairly well. He������came back to beat the  record, and the sound ol\bis voice rolled Mr. Bowser out of bed and set the  women screaming.  "Shut up 3'our noise!" he shouted -as  1 he fumbled around and struck a light.  "It's nothing1 but that owl come,back  again; but, by tho bones of Jacob. I'll  show him that his hooting isn't appreciated!"  The bird flew away at sight of the  light, and Mr. Bowser was standing in  the open door surveying tbe niglit  when a voice from out of ihe darkness  remarked:  "I seen your light, cully; and thought  1 I'd drop in and hev a cold bottle and a  bird with you."

"Never!" he shouted as he got breath  enough. , "I've leased this farm for.  three months, and all the tramps in the  state'shan't drive me away.

Mr.  Bowser was sick  of the whole job ,and fishing for a way-  to throw it up and get,back, to town,  but1 "he  couldn't see, his/way  clearly.  Right or wrong,,he always,stuck to,his  word.    He  was  plunged  in, reflection  when the owl came flying around, but  , he   managed   to  drive  it  off   without  raising an alarm.,   lie had just taken  (.his.scat again when he heard the' tramp  of feet, and next moment Dusty Bill  and two other tramps stood before him.  "Excuse me, cully." said Dusty, 'with  a scrape aud a bow, "but,I thought you  might like to meet me intimate friends,  Railroad   Jim  and' Towpath   Tom. '  I  told 'em dat you had a cold bottle,-and  a bird ready fur us."  '"I want the gang of you to clear off  this place at once!" sternly replied Mr.  Bowser as he heard, the two women  getting out of bed.- "   ,  "Speak softly,  cully," said Railroad  Jim  as  he pressed  forward.    "We  is  gentlemen talkia to a gentleman.- Dore  ain't no call'fur'any hard words between us."  , "And on do part of dis gang of gentlemen,"   added, Towpath   Tom   as  he'  moved up,'"I'd like to ask do,stranger  what-ho is'doin'in pu rehouse."

"Dis  yore cully has gone and formed a trust  to drive us''out of our, homo, and de  only way we ,kin git our rights is .to  bust de combination."   ; \    .  Mr.  Bowser realized  that he bad a  'scrap oh. hand, with odds of three to  one, but he did not falter.   As'they moved up on him he was ready., and when  Mrs. .Bowser reached the door the four  men  were.fighting in  a  heap on  the  grass.   There were screams and shouts  and curses, and the tramps encouraged  each other by shouting warcries,  but  at the'end of ton minutes they gave, up'  tho  fight and , fled.    Mr.. Bowser  had  f airly licked the trio', but he ��������� had not  come off unscathed. - They had kicked  and  bitten 'and pinched him  until  he  was a sight to see.    Mrs. Bowser was  weeping and thes cook .wailing as  he  .got up and. shook himself to-see what  was missing."   Without .heeding them  he   marched   into  the  house  and'-the  kitchen.    After, washing off the blood  he took  down  his coat from a- book,  buttoned it around bim aud put on his  hat.       '. ��������� * ,   :  "You are not going to follow them?"  Bobbed Mrs. Bowser.  "If we 'are left alone here, we'll be  murdered!" wailed the cook.  "Get ready and come on," replied the  victor of the scrap.  "But whore to?"      .:...-;-:   ���������  "Follow me." ,   -  And they put on their hats, locked  the door behind them and followed him  down to the gate and down the highway to the station. He walked In advance and spoke no word..- They had  only five minutes to wait for the midnight train, and he waved them aboard  and came after.  "It must be that we are going home,"  said Mrs. Bowser as.the train started.  "If we are, then I'll work for you for  ' a year without wages," said the thankful cook.  Mr. Bowser heard them, but he gave  no sign. He had spent a day and two  nights on a summer farm, and he was  trying to figure out how many years it  would take him to recover from his  vacation. Only once did he seem to  take any interest in what was going on  around him. That was as the train  stopped at a station for a minute and  a familiar voice'on the platform was  heard saying:  "Yes. gentlemen, he's fat and bald-  headed and crooked in the legs, but you  hev de word of Dusty Bill dat if he'd  train fur de ring none' of de fellers of  today would be in it" M.

She would be  a college widow for no one!  ���������       '���������  The tea bell was ringing. With' a  hasty glance in the mirror to see that  no traces of foolish tears remained she  tripped down stairs with a poor assumption of ber ordinary manner.  Once safe behind the urn. she devoted  herself to the business of pouringten.  She appeared particularly oblivious to  the glances that Tom sent in her direction, as if wondering the cause of her  silence.  He lingered at. the table after the-  others.  "Aren't you feeling well, Nancy?"  She clattered with the tea things as  she'laid stiffly:  "Quite well,,thank you."  Tom looked his surprise at her tone,  but he only said pleasantly:  "Well, don't forget the concert We  had better start at'7:30."  Nancy made a valiant effort to be  cool and dignified, but there-was a little catch in her voice as she said:  "Oh, the concert! 1 had forgotten.  But I���������1 don't feel like going tonight.

Nancy said  she was delighted to see him and was  so very charming that he came again  ���������and again. Tom had never thought  much about Du Peyster, but how he  found himself regarding "the call"  with hatred. Du Peyster took Nancy  to all the games.  "I do not need your tickets, thank  you, Mr. Garrett."  That "Mr." was' the last straw, and  Tom vowed that he would never again  try to make friends with her. He kept  his word,  but his heart often failed  him as he saw 'Nancy, his pretty, Nancy, go off with that cad Du'Peyster,  ���������with'never a gfance in'bis direction. ���������  '* ;- ���������   *        * 1     - * ;-      * ���������       *       ' *''  It was a clear November day, an  ideal Thanksgiving day, and every one  was out ih'force'for the last game of  the season. ,Du Peyste'r-'tbought he  had never seen Nancy look prettier, 'all/  in the college colors, with, her red suit  and black furs.

Durability of  Ancient Ink.  The  labor required  in   making the  manuscript books of undent days was  . far, beyond the understanding-of the  men of the present day,- who possess  all tlie modern adjuncts to that art As  these books Were Intended to last for  many years, answering the same purpose as our printed tomes, the great  desideratum in their preparation was  durability.   As a natural consequence  those who made them not only selected  the best quality of parchment or other  -material to write upon, but also paid  .particular attention to the quality of  the ink used in such work.  " That they were successful in making  the latter is evidenced by the fact that  in the majority of instances the characters inscribed/on the most ancient  manuscript rolls now preserved in the  British   museum   and  elsewhere   are  very legible, the ink being bright and  black and showing but little evidence  of its great age. It is supposed that the  superior quality of lampblack, prepared, in a.manner now unknown, was the  true cause of this beautiful and lasting  color of the ink in question.

Minister of  Mine?, is at present making a  tour  of the Kooienay country.     A complimentary  banquet' was-tendered  him   by the* mining' and   business  men   of   Rossland.'   at   which   the  Colonel   made   one   of   his . usual,  'fiank anti cordial ' speeches.     He  said    that    noihwhlistanding   the  -   statement   made   in   the  Victoria  '"Times" that' "a pretty hot "time' had  been prepared for him in the Koot-  euaysV5 liis reception at the various  vplaces he had visited had been most  coidial.     He believed  there was a  L' splendid future) for Rossland.   .The  energy  and' determination " of> its,  citizens would place the ciiy in the  proud^ppsitijn of being at least one '  of the.largest cities in the'Province,  ������He   believed it  was his duty as  a  Minister oi the'Crown to travel the .  .'- '  length and breadth of the Province,  ������������������ i   , '~ *        ''  ,and bee^what were ihe needs-of'the-  people - and the distiicis .in   which  the people,.live.-    The members of  the government'were most anxious  to do what is best for the weifaieof  the   Province; ' they   are   anxious  to seethe mining l'dustry put on a  proper and'paying basis,    .Revenue  is  necessary, and the government  wish to see that that revenue is collected'in a-manner that will   press  the lightest  possible  way  on   tne  men who have invested their capital in the country.      The-Colonel  said  the production of minerals iu  the Province in -1901 amounted to  $20,088,000 which showed that the  mining industry was not quite dead,  as  the   pessimists 'would, have  it.  The gold in  B.C."as a  whole," increased, in 1901, .26 per cent; silver,  25 per cent.; the'output of copper,  1.75 per cent.     The decrease in iead  was 25-^ per cent.    The Colonel said  he  had   visited  the Trail smelter,  .and was astonished at its magnitude.     Referring to the depression  in  lead  mining,  he said it would  give his colleagues and himself the  greatest  pleasure  to   endorse  any  resolutions  the  Provincial Boards  of Trade may see fit to forward to  the Dominion Government regaid-  ing that question.  Referring to the Fernie coal  mines strike, he said it waa a mutter of great coigratulation that the  strike had been brought to an end.  There would now be an unlimited  supply of coke to carry on mining  and smelting.    .  The government of which I am a  member is not either Conservative  or Liberal, but, as you know,  has  both Conservatives and Libera'  in  it.     I therefore do  not appeal  to  you as a Conservative, and certainly  not as a Liberal.     I am.here on  a  visit to learn something; I am here  to find out from you gentlemen who  are present here to-night, and who j  are perfectly able to teach me, what j  you think is tlie best thing for the ,  government to do and what action4',  they should take to put the mining  DIRECT from the G^OWJSI*- to the CO_TSU_tE_t  G.J..
