Work   was  resumed at noon ' AA^dnfsday,   and.  the last bodies recovered were found.  Then work was finally  abandoned  in   No. '5 on Thursday,    it  being  thought unsafe to proceed   further  from that end  on   account   of the  distance in carrying   air. *  Messrp.  1 Morgan, Little,    Matthews,   Priest,  Stauss, Wilson and D.

At 7  o'clcck Saturday evening, the watfr  would be foolhardy in the extscme  to risk men's live.- unnecessarily by  allowing "them   in the   pit  before  certain measures   are   adopted for  the extinction of any   possible  fire  which .may be'lurking, unsuspected.  Therefore,   the . management  have ,  ' wisely decided to flood 6 until dan-  'ger is over so far as can be judged. .  That there wr.s fiie in   Uie . bottom  of No, 6 the."ie is plenty of  evidence  of.   -The    timbers    being  charred  tome 40 or  fif y feet   up the shaft,  and no doubt" but   for the  prompt  application "of water the night after  the disaster, the whole'mine would  have firod   with   dreadful   results.  '��������� ThM funeral" of D'. Mi'Davis, lust  Wednesday, was most impressive.  ^.Friends of the deceased met at the  Town Hall. ' After, depositing the  coffin' in'the hearse, a' Welsh funeral hymn, "Bydd Myrdd a Ryfed-  dodau" was sung with 'that pathos  and' 'feeling;' ��������� that ��������� alternation of  softness and power; those exquisite  lights and.shadow's of piano and  forte, of'crescendo and ,decrescendo  and with that fulness and richness  of harmony, which is the gift oi the  Welsh,and them alone, . in Aheir  vocal ���������rendeiing of,music, At tl e  grave, the.hymn, "Yn y Dyfroecd  ��������� Mi'.wr ar Tonan", w.������s rendered, the  services being held by "the Revd.

Last Thursday evening, a   meeting  of   the   collecting   committee,  chosen by the City Council, met in  the reading rooms and   elected  an  executive and  divided   themselves  into sub-committees for certain-districts.    In   order   that   a . certain  point may be made   clear,  we  are  instructed to inform.the public that  the white fund  is   to  be  separate  and for the sole benefit of the whites  who may be   in need   through  the  disaster.    The Japanese are collecting among   themFelves,   but  their  fund is separate and   distinct from  the other.    Much surprise has been  expressed aud some criticism made,  as to the^e not being a public meeting called  in   this   connection.    It  would have been   better   had   this  been done, that is to say, it  would  have been more satisfactory   to the  public, to judge  by what   we hear.  However, as   the   present   one ie a  collecting   committee,   there, is no  doubt that a public meating will be  called to discuss the best   plans for  asas" turned on and rose  steadily in     tfae J]ltimate disposal of   the funds  collected, where a   vote of   the. majority will set  at   rest   any   minor  ItVili.be some weeks now before  any more bodies can be recovered.  As there is no earthly hope of any  life existing in the workings, and as  it wa������ a moral certainty that all the  doomed men could not possibly  have lived more than a very shoit  time, af.er the first explosion, so  it,  dissensions, which    indeed,   should  not exist in   a sad   affair  such   as  thlF.

Ast for fiinarfs and late no oilier.  The Instinctive   Horror 'of  Manlcintl  For Certain Aniinals.  One of the unexplainable things in  human nature is the antipathy,of persons  to certain .animals. ��������� A woman is afraid  of a mouse.    AYhy is .it?  Nearly every one will admit privately  '"hat some instinct of horror leads him to  shrink froth certain animals which he  knows to be harmless. This feeling generally increases as we proceed downward  in the scale of animal life, reaching it3  maximum at insects au:b spider's. But it  .is ,not confined to these lower- animals.  Apart from the feeling some women have  toward mice, there are men who have  some such feeling ''even -toward dogs.  Going from mammalia to birds, such feelings may be unusual, but some- persons  have lo a certain extent this horror at  tho idea of touching certain 'fowls,-  though' most birds seem to , them' unobjectionable. :  . As,regards reptiles, the'feeling is common. Thousands shrink from touching a  common ring snake or a glowworm, the  most harmless of aniinals, or even a-  frog,' hut others will make pots of frogs'  or of the harmless kin*-! of snakes.' So a  woman might make a pel of a frog and  shrink from a mouse. ' '-  This instinctive, dread reaches its most  marked point in  (he case of insects and  ,!;piders.'" Some shudder at the thought of  touching any insect or, they .would say'.  ..creeping things.    Some would  play  with  certain insect.v-ii  moth���������but shrink from--'  'others,  as  a cockroach  or  earwig,_ both  perfectly   harmless. .  With   years   these  feelings  may change.- The "goat- ninth"  is one of the large'moths, and  I should  gladly let il crawl on ,my hand, -but even  now, after many year's. 1 shudder at the  mere thought of touching the caterpillar  of   that  moth.     I   meni ion   these, things'  about  myself because  one  can.   in  such  cases," say'with certainty , what one  has  known, but not what one has merely been  told.     I   hope   some   readers   whoso   ingenuity  or   knowledge   is. more   profound'  than mine will suggest a satisfactory ex-'  planaliou of these singular feelings which  we certainly have toward 'some and. various, creatures. .'   "  "Whether other animals share such feelings I know not,  bat I will tell an anecdote  suggesting  something  of   the   kind'.  An observer saw two-hungry sparrows ia  the   street   with   a   black  object   between  them .which"they seemed to wish" to pick  up. but the thing seemed lo 'wriggle and  the birds to shrink from it, and soon they  flow away.    What repelled  them   was a  cbeetle  resembling   that  commonly   called  the '"devil's -coach horse."  and.   like  the  .sparrows,   the   observer   shrank   from r it.  Though no doubt it was perfectly  harm-  "less, it would have needed a strong nio-  'tive to  induce  the  person  who  told   this  story to-pick, it up even  with glove's.'^ and  the  sparrows seemed  at   least   to  feel as  he   did.     This   beetle,   so  hideous   that   a  ma.n. ' and   even   a. couple "of   sparrows.  cShrank away with repulsion" at the mere  sight of il, was yet. '.mubtlcss. to* its own  kind, a handsome, beautiful animal.   Why  should  a woman shudder at   the .thought  of ^harmless mouse?���������Seattle Post-Intel  lige-ncor.

Judged by this high  standard, Dr. Chase stands pre-eminent as a giant among physicians.  Take kidney and liver derangements,  for example. Dr. Chase, by means  of his Kidney-Liver pills,' has.brought;  about some 01 the most surprising  cures ever effected. This is due to  the direct and specific action of this  great-home treatment on. the liver  and kidneys.. Here .' is the experience  of a highly respected resident of Con-  secon,   Ont. :'���������  Mr. James Dellihunt, Consecon,  Prince Edward County, Ont., writes:  "For several years I suffered great  tortures of mind and body from  Bright's disease of the kidneys. The  pains were sometimes almost beyond  endurance and extended from my  head and between the shoulders down  the wdiole spinal column and spemed  to concentrate across . my ���������'kidneys.  My back was never entirely free 'fiiorn.  pain. When I got up in the rnorriirig  I could not straighten myself at all,  but would go bent nearly double  most all day.    My water was scanty  and at other times profuse, and it  gave me.great pain to urinate. . \ ���������  'T could do no work, and, though.  I tried many kinds of kidney. pills,  could get, no relief. As a last resort  I was induced by a friend to. give Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Diver .Pills a trial. I  felt a change after the first close. I  used in all about five boxes, and  they have entirely cured me. I have  no pains now and can do as good a  day's work, as I ever could. It is a  pleasure for .me to recommend Di".  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, as they,  have done so much for me."  Mr. J. J. Ward, J.P., Consecon,.certifies that he has known Mr. Dellihunt for years as a truthful man and  respected citizen, and vouches for the  truth of the above statement.  ���������  You cannot possibly obtain a more  beneficial treatment for the kidneys'  and liver than Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills. It has stood- the test of  time and has proven beyond dispute  its right to the title of "the world's  greatest kidney medicine."
