' '  '     T ' "'      "'"  Present' Mining Oonilltions,  IN   THE    TRANSVAAL.  j   For  the  benefit  of  our  readers  who-at some time have visited  the  Transvaal or contemplate doing so,  we publish  some extracts  from   a\  most interesting letter published in  the E. and M. Journal of Fobruary  8th, 1902 :���������������������������   '      \  .'''Were it not for,the restrictions  and "grievances connected with mar-  tiarlaw, one would scarcely believe  there was any war on at all. Every  now and then some wild plot onthe  part' of the "foreign . element'."of  Johannesburg-is- brought to  light,  but after oneror two; of'the leaders  are  court-martia.ed^ and   shot^ .we  lapseihack into a quiet and regular,  rlife again.   ;The "refugees^ fas the,'  'returning Johannesburg population  are   called, ,-are  arriving   steadily  from tKe coast,   all appearance of a  rush, however,.being prevented  by"  .the  military authorities by;means '  of the<per,_nit.Bystehir.;> The best in-<  formed,, men . hereVare ^of- opinion  that-by the middle of February all"  the necessary labouring population '  fo/,the mines .wilLhejherej.and their *  prediction-is that* after that- time  reaL want, will, commence';in-'ouV  midst on account:of;.the thousands '  of unnecessary .people Vhorarevde-;  ^termined-to ge^'here'^   -I;;havV'beeji  ^oVerSqdth Affica'a good" deal; and'  it 8truck me that every mau^  woman   and 'child   were   plftnuing to"  come  to'Johannesburg^ .to make a  fortune,  as -soon-as - the' way V\ as  opened   up'.'-' A  great manyjxiore-  will come than  are needed, for the  mining industry cannot get back to  ics high water-mark, save by slow  degrees; nor can   big properties be  sufficiently opened up  to employ a  great number of  men  in a. short  .space of time.'. A prominent member of one of the big relief committees told 'me that he expected a  big  strain   on \ their   money   bags   by,  April or- May, so you can see  how  the wind  blows.     Just now. however,   their is  no scarcity of  work,  and it is easy to find employment.  Were the authorities to throw open  the gates to-morrow, however, the  white labor would soon exceed the  demand,.    Of the thousands of immigrants that rill come   to  South  Africa the greater proportion will  select Johannesburg as their goal.  It  is   in this   way,  however, that  South Africa will become populated, for the excess population that  comes to Johannesburg, and finds  standing room' only, "will be forced  to Other parts of the land.   Already  the Government i_ showing praiseworthy efforts to  make it  possible  for numbers of the ; coming  mnl ti  tude to find employment inagricul-  tural pursuits.   ' No, doubt new industries  will spring up, but I am  sure the gold industry of the Rand,  great as it-is, cannot, support every  one coming to the Transvaal.    As  long as martial law holds sway we  do not expect to see any great congestion here.   An arrangement that  the returning refugees find' rather  disagreeable,   as well  as. the  mine  managers who employ them, is that  all males who are British subjects  are forced to become members of a  military   organization,   the   Rand  Rifles.    This is a reserved force for  the protection of Johannesburg, al  most   the  only protection   in   fac ,  that this place has just now, ' most  of the regular troops being  posted  elsewhere.   Every member must at-'  tend   a  certain   number   of   drills  each month,Nand it is rather annoying,   sometimes,   when   you   most  want a man for an  important   job  underground, to be reminded that  he. has to attend drill  that   afternoon.    ,You  are compelled'to   let  him off two hours or so before  the  usual hour.    Americans score here,  for they cannot"force them   to  become Rand Riflemen.    There is no  question 'about   the  superiority of  Delago'a Bay as a natural- harbour  oyerj other,,_South   African   ports.  ,'Hpw long^Portugal will be able to  hold ttiis'ipportan't place it is hard  to'say. If Britain decides shef6ught  /t6havei_;"Pprtugai'-will lose their  possession, but as1 the other British  ports,- 'like -Durban,  Port Elizabeth  -arid Cape Town, are-very much op-  ^^jy&i^kgoarBay ever   becom-  ��������� ia/^f^^ possession, it is probable-Deiagoa will be in the hrands  ���������^fthe'Tortuguse for a long time to  '.come.     Portuguese EasT Africa is  -zone of the -most densely populated  ,,parts   of - South ' Africa, ~and'< the  'J-^Kaffirs from that territory are pre-^  ferred for'the-mines for two;reasons  '���������on   account" of   the   distance to  .their   homes' they' Jo   not care  to  .take .so   many  trips home as ��������� the  Zulus   and-Basutos c do,  so   when  they -are  once' comfortably settled?  j������n  a   mine. they 'will' remain   for  ;mpnths, pertiaps-for years.     These  'Kaffirs-are also popular'because ,of  their- stupidity. . - ' As   there are'  'thousand's ;ofl Eaffiis .required   to  :work "the gold-.mines, as manias  "3,500--being employed oh   a  mine  /running 500 stamps.   These Knffirs  -aie under'the charge, of a compound  manager, .generally an  Africander,  ' wh6ihas been brought' up with  the  .nativesand'thoroughly understands,  " now to'manage them?r "How are =  you to punish a,Kaffir if  he does  wrong ?    From person, 1 experience "  I know that the only way to really  punish him is to make him 'suffer  physical pain.     Imprisonment  to  -him   is   a. mere  holiday,  and no  punishment  at  all.      Discharging  them   from"your  employ is ridiculous, as he can find work in half an  hour  at  any of  the neighbouring  mines.     The Dutch, who know the  Kaffirs so well, generally punished  them  at  the  whipping   post,   the  number of strips administered varying with   the   heinousness of  the  crime.     To  the Kaffir mind  these  lashes were abhorent) and the "fear  of  them  kept  many   from  crime.  I had a Kaffir boy whom I caught  stealing gold.   ^Afc the trial  he was  in fear   and  trembling   that la.lies  would be his punishment, but when  he was told that he would only be  imprisoned for 4 months, he could  hardly contain himself.    6 months  later I saw him free once more. He  said that he had enjoyed his1 holiday, and would hot mind  stealing  some more gold if his punishment  would   be as light again.      Before  this war, the Kaffirs on the mine,  if they did wrong, and deserved it.  were .flogged by the compound man  ager.    Legally he was not supposed  to do s'pi-but I do not suppose there  was ever  a  conviction under  the  Beer   Government    for    such   an  offence, unless it was a case of cruelty, which seldom happened.'  Most of the mines are starting up  on short notice. Very few of them  are working on the contract system  as yet, the miners receiving/the  sa'me wages as formerly,' 25 shillings, per shift for running two  rock drills, but as soon as we settle  down somewhat the con tract system  will be reinstated."  ������������������4V ""> V      A  s     ,.

Death.���������The many friendssof Mr  and Mrs Wain were shocked to  hear of the death of their little son, -  Alex. Clinton, which occurred on -  Wednesday morning last. The little  fellow had suffered from a throat  affection foi a few days before the.  end came, and nothing ^serious was  anticipated, but in spite of medical  aid, and the loving care of his  father and mother, he succumbed to  the falaKlmess.    Had he lived un-  j  til June he would have been two  years old. -A remarkably bright  and lovely little lad, his sudden  death has cast a gloom over the  home of which he was the idol.  The funeral took place on Thursday  afternoon, the service being ;conducted by Mr White' at both the  house and ' grave. Mr and Mrs  Wain have the sincere sympathy of  the community in their sorrow.  Many beautiful floral offerings were  sent by sympathising friends. The  pall-bearers were Masters H. Mac-  Lean, R. Somerviile, C. Magnone,  and E. Hunden.  Department of Agriculture.

By mere numbers alone, pushed\. on  by their fanatical belief m, the favor  of the gods whom Hassaje represented,.the horde-of .black, sinewy forms  might crush its way to  the top.  Having run the gauntlet of rocks  they must face the blasting, wither-,  ing fire of the 'Winchesters and rcvol-  - vers, and if in spite of all this they,  forged to the top of the 'pass, making a gory mat out of their luckless  fellows, it would be to meet three  men who could fight like gladiators  hand-to-dand. swinging their guns  like cricket bats and hurling the im-  pis back as fast as they crossed tho  line, so long as human nature could  stand   it.  And while this scene was taking  place on one side of J he fort.others  ha idly less desperate -wore occurring  near  uy. ,        /  E\ ory man had his hands full. Rex  who had not suspected the enemy  could steal such a march upon them  was ama/ed to see the number of  black forms that started to crawl  out the harrier. He hardly knew  which one to fno at first, bat realizing the folly of delay made a start.  Such was the infernal elm that he  would hardly ha\ e known his piece  had been discharged only from the  .nisli of fire that shot from the muzzle, aud the fact that his target fell  off'the wall.  Monsieur Jules had also found an  object at ,which to blaze away, and  the tremendous bellow of the great  yager gun make its impression upon  the general *din. As for the savant,  the recoil tumbled him over in a  heap, though he was speedily on his  feet again, as spry as a feline.  There was an abundance of work  on hand for vvory member of that  iii tie baud. Tfad they I:*."mi individual l-y favored with four bauds instead of two, i hey might, have 'kept  iuisv.

Xo longer were the -whites.

Tlie Allift-itor Gar Is One Fresh Water Specie** Tiiat Is Feared In tlie  SoutJi���������A' Mysterionji Monster That  Inhttl-its a Miclii_,nn   Lake.  So far as any danger from the game  is concerned, fresh water fishing has  always been looked upon as about as  .safe as any sport "in, the world, aud the  fresh water fish has gone on record as  harmless and nonresistant. <But there  are instances now and then /svlien the  fish turns the tables. The. inhabitants  of Osceola county, Mich., who live in  the neighborhood of'Lake George, an  inland water about, three miles long,  aro almost superstitiously afraid of a  certain llsh that inhabits that lake. No  one knows what sort of fish it is. and  opinion locally is divided as to whether  it is a giant muskellunge or a sturgeon. . ��������� i ,'  Spearing parties had jqow and then  reported seeing a very large'fish without being able to strike it. but no one  gave credence  to  the'tales   until  one  night several years tigo. when a party  of sportsmen from Chicago-went on the  lake'spearing in charge of an old resident named Armstrong.     \ .  ', Armstrong was the only one that returned to tell the story.   He said the  party was spearing in shallow water  when they saw an, enormous fish that  resembled an overgrown pickerel.  Two  of the Chicago men were standing in  the bow, and at first supposed the^lish  to, be a-log'.  Then one saw his mistake  and,struck with all his might.  The fish'  gave a dart that made "the boat jump  as though a steam engine were pulling  it. .If the man had let go of the spear,  all would have been well, but he hung  on, and the fish gave a-mighty flop to  right angles with  the boat. 'The man  Btill held to the spear, with the result  that the boat capsized,', and  the men  found themselves standing in mud and  water'up to their waists.           ��������� .. .       ,  , The light went but when the boat up-  <set, , and,   the   night  being  dark   and  cloudy, not one of the party had nny  idea of.,the direction to be-pursued In  ,reaching shore.  The shallow water occupies a large part of the lake, and  they  could   wander   In ��������� any   direction  without being able to tell whether or  not  they   were  nearing-' shore.    Armstrong-said   afterward   that <��������� nothing  could equal'the awfulness of the expe-  riericVtuat followed.   They made their  way In one direction after another and  wandered round and. round, going half  way to their.kiieos in  mud at every,  step.  To ; make matters worse a cold,  ���������teady, drizzling rain began to fall."  They were soon numb to the marrow.  Then one of the sportsmen dropped  without a word, and no one went to his  help. Little by little the three that remained were separated. Armstrong  says he himself became unconscious  after a time and remembers nothing that happened until he was roused  by-feeling solid ground beneath his  feet and finding that the water was  more shallow; than it had been. He  kept on and fell upon tbe shore. Then  on hands and knees he crawled to  camp and gave the alarm. Search was  ,at once made for his companions, and  their bodies were recovered. Since that  time the big fish with a scar on his  back has twice or thrice been seen by  spearing parties, but they'have passed  it by. .   ��������� '      ,    .  There is one species of fish In the  south that is feared only little less  than Its salt water contemporary the  shark. This is the alligator gar. It  grows to enormous size and has a bill  hard and bony and much broader than  the bill of the common gar of northern  waters. One who goes out upon the  lakes of Louisiana and Arkansas will  see them jumping and splashing like  enormous trout. Their usual food consist., of fish, and they not only make  endless trouble for" .those who ;go fishing   with   minnows,   but   have   been  ting his feet hang over the stern, when  a gar grabbed him by one leg.

One spring'the writer -was visiting'a  rice plantation oa'the "lower coast" of  the Mississippi when an old negress  came wailing to the house and said her  five-year-old boy was dead! He had  been'playing at the'edge of a bayou  and was lying on the bank extending -  his arms into the water when a gar  cametwith'a rush and, grabbing the  youngster by the arm, pulled him intb  the water. 'A young negro with a shotgun was standing near watching for  ricebirds. He ran to'the bank. The  lish found ���������it had undertaken a' bigger  task than It could well "manage, and a  wild struggle was in progress between  the gar and the dying child. rThe negro  shot,the fish, but the child died before  it could be taken from the water.  removed".'

Courtesy there easy,  because ���������there will be no faults to  overlook,  no rapologies to  make,    no  'mistakes to correct, no disagrecablc-  ness     to     overcome,     no    wrongs to  'right.

The Chinamaii on rising began to  brush off the.mud and said to the  American: ��������������������������� "You Christian; me  heathen. Goodby."      A     stranger  entered a church in one of the  cities and was allowed to stand  a -long while, although there was  plenty of room. No one offered  a seat.

The officer of  the church understood what was  meant and gave him a scat. We  want more courtesy in.the1 churches,  more courtesy in places of business,  more  courtesy in our  homes.  But heart courtesy must precede  hand and head and foot courtesy.  Cultivation of it should begin in  the father's house. You often notice  that  brothers   and   sisters      are  who are worse than ,J am, I conclude that if 1 had the same bad  influences around me all mv life  that they have had I would probably have been worse than the.y  now are. The work of reform is  the most important work, but many  of the reformers, dwelling on one  evil, see nothing but evil, and tlvy  get so used to anathema they forgot the usefulness once in awhile of  a bencdiclios>. They get so accustomed to excoriating public men  that they do not realize that never  since John Hancock in boldest chi-  rography signed the Declaration of  Independence, never since Columbus  picked up the floating land flov.'eis  that showed him he was coining near  somo new country, have there been  so many noble and 'splendid and  Christian men in high places in  as now.      You     could  this   country  go into the President's Cabinet or  the United States Senate or the  house of representatives in this city  and find plenty of men capable of  holding an old fashioned, Methodist  prayer meeting, plenty of senators  and representatives and cabinet officers to start the tune and kneel  with the penitents at the altar. .'In  all these places there are. men who  could, without looking at the book,  recite the sublime, words, as die!  Gladstone during'.vacation at Ha-  "warden, "I believe in God, tlie Father Almighty, .Maker' of heaven' , >-and  ���������earth, and in Jesus Christ,";'' and  from the senate and house of representatives and the Presidential Cabinet and from the surrounding offices  and committee rooms,. if they could  hear, would come many voices responding "Amen and amen!"  Christian courtesy I especially commend to those who have subordinates. Almost every person has some  one under him. How do you treat  that clerk, that servant, that assistant, that employe? "Do you accost  him in brusque terms and roughly  command him to do that which you  might kindly ask him to do? The  last words that the puke of Wellington  uttered were,   "If you     please."  have  prolonged   acrimony, 'ending  in  great slaughter?    Room for  all     nations of the earth and all" styles     of  government.    What  the  world wants  is less armament and more courtesy,  less  of tho spirit  of destruction    and  more of the spirit of amity.        This  century has opened with too      many  armies     in the field and too     many  men-of-war on the ocean.   Before the  century  closes  may the  last  cavalry  horse be hitched to the plow and the'  last warship become a merchantman.  But  we are mot in  official  position  and therefore must leave to      others  the,   cause      of  international  amity.  What we "want to  cultivate  is    good  will to those with whom we come in  contact day by day.    May we all be  charged  and   surcharged  with      that  courtesy.    We  may  strengthen      this  grace  by coming  to  a higher appreciation of what a man is,  of what a  woman is.   -W'e cannot expect perfection,   but in almost every one    there  is   something  good  and   worthy      of  courtesy.    If they  are  clear      down,  they are trying to rise.    If they have  gone astray,   they  want to  get back.  Jle is an immortal being whom    you  are confronting, he is a being    mad-  in the image of God- he will outlive  the planetary system; he will live as  long as the Almighty lives.   Started,  ! he. will never stop.    Your     Christian  courtesy  may be his eternal     rescue.  To the young let me say: Sow courtesy,   and   you   will   reap      courtesy;  sow   hostilities,   and  you   will      reap  hostilities.    Get your heart so: right  that it will make the tones  of   your  voice      persuasive     and your salutations  on  the  street and   your greetings at the door of home and church  and hall a blessing to all,    and    the  kindly   influences   you. throw  w  upon  them   "will  rebound   upon  your own  heart and life.   While, you arc making  them  happier you  will  make      yourself happier.  If others lack courtesy that is no  reason why you should lack it. Respond to rudeness by utmost affability. Because some ono else is a boor  is no ���������reason why you should be a  boor. But how few show urbanity  when badly treated! Human nature  says, "An eye for an eye, a tooth  for a tooth, retort for retort, slander for slander, maltreatment. for  maltreatment." But there have been  those you and I have known who  amid assault and caricature and injustice have maintained the loveliness of blossom week in springtime.  Nothing but divine grace in the  heart can keep such equilibrium.  That is not human nature until it is  transformed by supernal influences.  To put it on the lowest, ground you  cannot afford to be revengeful and  malignant. Hatred and high indignation are stages of unhealth. They  enlarge the spleen; they weaken the  nerves; they attack the brain.     Rage  A  Call  Diiv. n for  it r. J.

Some one with plenty of tiine on-bis  ' hands has conceived the idea of hunting  'through the work's of all the well known  English novelists for the purpose of gathering all the adjectives with 'which to  qualify the word, "kiss." The, result of  his labor is that kisses can be as follows: '  Cold, warm, icy, burning, chilly, cool,Jloving, indifferent, balsamic, fragrant, blissful, passionate, aromatic, with tears bedewed, long, soft,- hasty, intoxicating, dissembling, delicious, pious, tender," beguiling, hearty, distracted.1 frantic, fresh as  the' morning, breathing fire, divine, glad,  superficial, quiet, loud; fond,, heavenly,  devouring, ominous, fervent, .parching,  nervous, soulless,'stupefying, slight, careless, anxious, painful, sweet, refreshing,'  embarrassed, shy, mute, ravishing, holy,  sacred, firm, hurried, faithless, narcotic,  feverish, .immoderate, sisterly, brotherly  and paradisaical.

A mushroom's'method of growth and  propagation'is popularly considered to be  a first class mystery. It is not such, however, from the scientific point of view!  On the contrary, itds very well understood  how the seeds or spores are developed on  the underside of the fungus, microscopic  and of vast numbers, a single agaric often  having as ,many as 10,000.000. These  myriad germs, when they laud upon suitable ground., send forth numerous fine  cottonlike threads, which bring nourishment to the spore. Fattening upon the  food it gets from the earth in this way  tbe embryo swells into a fleshy kernel,  like a knot amid the network of filaments  about it. From'this kernel the mushroom  in all its parts is developed before it  ohows above the.ground.

In some parts of Peru���������for example, in  the province of Jauja���������hens' eggs are circulated as small coins, forty to fifty being  counted for a dollar. In the market  places and in the shops the Indians make  most of their purchases with this brittle  sort of money. One will give two or  throe eggs for brandy, another for indigo  and a third for cigars. These eggs are  packed in boxes by the shopkeepers and  sent to Lima. From Jauja alone several  thousand loads of eggs are annually forwarded to the capital.  A Humoroua Thief.  A Belgian paper relates a story of a  banker and municipal treasurer in an  Italian town who disappeared, leaving a  deficit of $100,000. The authorities proceeded to break open his strong box,  which was found to contain a piece of  paper inclosing 50 cents and stating that  tb. money was for the locksmith who  should be deputed to break opeu the safe.  Values of Clover aud Timothy.        *- ���������'  i  , It is said that timothy   ,6f  "good  quality contains a little more than a  half pound,   or fourteen-twen'ty-fifths  of a������ pound of nitrogenous matter in  twenty-five pounds.

This explains why clover is so much  better for milk production or for fattening stock than timothy hay.    Mr*-.;  J. S.

Chemists may  tell  us  that only the*  water has dried  out of it,  but     the-  natural juice   of a plant is not    the  same thing as  the  water from      the  well  or brook.     We never saw      tlie  chemist who  could make a slice      of  good apple or peach by adding water  to the evaporated fruit,  although we-  own that the fruit dried quickly    in.  the evaporator does not undergo the  same change as it used to under tho  old process of drying in the sun. And  dried beef will not make a good beefsteak by soaking it in water.  Furniture   I'oIImIi.

If they are  watered after feeding, the water  washes the undigested food out ��������� of  Che stomach, and thereby may  cause trouble. Water drunk by k  horse does not stay in the stomach  like food,      but    passes       rapidly  through it, going directly to the  large intestines; 'Horses should always have plenty, of good, pure  water to drink, and at frequent intervals. A horse coming in hot  from work will very seldom suffer  from getting a drink of water at.  once. lie-is apt to'chill if cold water be given after he has partially  cooled. If the water be given at  once in    moderate  quantity,     the-  heat in the system warms it at  once, and no harm results. If the  horse be deft till he be partially  cooled, the water withdrawing  more heat when the system has begun to Hag, may cause a chill. A  horse should never be given a large  quantity of cold water just before-  doing fast work. It may hurt both  his going and staying powers and ,  induce scouring. A horse going out  for fast work should be watered at  least two hours before leaving tho.  stable, and then, even if offered, at  starting, will seldom take more  than a mouthful. During a long  journey a horse should be watered i  whenever there is an opportunity. If?  I  p.  a  i ���������  h  If*-'  US  IS  fe.  |r;  h  U_;  I*.

"And'Constance Townsand is quite .lie  handsomest' there."  , And the General's widow , was right.

"That girl understands effects perfectly, " thought- the' General's* widow,  as she watched her quietly and appar-'  ently without intention seat herself in  on old-fashioned high-back chair shat  . stood just at the .foot of the -stairway,  - and-over which a graceful palm spread  its dark green leaves.  -, <l-  There had been quite a discussion between ;tbie General's widow,   the littlo  " lady in*brown. and tho bride as to '.low  Ithe^aird, the Duke, "and the writer.  would act when they fir_t saw Miss  1 Towsand, for the three women . md  ! watched with a growing interest the  I sensations she never tailed to produce,  i until they had begun to have a sense of  j proprietorship in the girl's radiant beau  j ty, aud would have bitterly reseated fury  ; criticism tho leas, bit unfnvoraole.  jThat Miss Town*and des..yed their ad-  '���������i miration was certain, and that she never  j failed to be in the entrance hall when  ! the evening coaches arrived, faultlessly  gowned in white, and carrying her  favorite flower, was also certain, so that  the three women were sure on this particular .evening of enjoying the little  tableau they had mentally arranged.

And his locks were brown  ' and cut short, he did not go through the  running act. althoug it did take him a  long time to read the telegram/ as over  it he watched the beautiful girl smiling*  and chatting to those about her. Then  turning to the clerk at the desk, he  asked:  "Who is tho lady in white with the  moon-flowers?"  "Miss Townsand of Texas, nieco of  Majoi Townpand. the richest cattle-man  in the country.

I     "That's all right, old man; when you  I want an introduction to the Major, I will  ! gladly arrange it "for you."  ��������� As for the Scotch   Laird, he did not  ��������� appear, thereby disappointing the little  j lady in "brown, who had been his. chain-  ipion from the first, declaring that he  I would be the ono to woo and win.  ��������� "My dear, he and his kilts have beon  ��������� bribed into staying elsewhere as attrac-  ; tions." said the General's widow, who  j disliked Scotchmen. ������<?���������**������������������������*.'  j " No such thing; he is probably so shy  i or late that he   has   come , in by a side  ��������� entrance.

' .,   ,  "Well, send it to the same place," said  ��������� the  woman,  and  then vshe wrote  out ,a  check for'the amount, which was, accept-'  ed 'without   a, moment's   hesitation.-    A  member of the firm accompanied her to  the   door   and   bowed''her   out' with' the  same ceremony that-he',would have shown  to the" wealthiest customer on his books.  The member of the firm was not averse  to enlightening a curious customer about  the woman and "her purchases.  "No," he said; "she is not a competitor.  She's the linen woman, that's all.   Don't  know  her?   Well,   I   suppose,' not.    She  , doesn't operate in New York.  ;She does  business in small towns.   She .swaps that  linen for old clothes, old shoes, -old hats,  old3 anything "that she can get, and because she^buys the best linen that can be  bought and does a business that is strictly honest her customers are the best people, in each place that she goes.  .-  "She won't -sell  linen' for money,   but  she will swap it for most anything, and  the peculiar thing about it is. that it is a  bargain in which each side gets the best  of it. ., The customer gets the best of it  because he gives up something for.which  ho has  no, use,  making the  linen, clear  profit; "the linen woman gets the Uest of  it because when she appraises an article  /,   at ������1   and  givepath'e  owner that  much  value in linen forWt she knows that when  _ho .has made that- article ready for the  ���������    market it will bring, a price that will give  her a profit of anywhere from'50 to 100  per cent and'sometimes even more."  ;   "I have some Very good private'eus'tom-  ers.'but' the linen woman is my best.  She  1   buysQmore from me in a year than any  other ten customers I have, and, what is  more,1 she pays cash for it.   I have men  in my employ who. have been handling  I linens for a great many years, but I don't  believe one of them knows more about  the subject than the linen woman.   Don't  think she is the only linen woman.  There  are .about six of them operating cini this  state ,and in Pennsylvania and all doing  the same kind of business.   They're getting rich at it too."'-  In the last three or four years the linen  woman has become quite an institution  in the small cities in ��������� the southern  and  western part of this state 'and just over  the  line in Pennsylvania.   There is one  city of 40.000 people in this state which  is almost kept in linen by a woman from  Scranton who buys her stock at the highest prices in New York stores and then  swaps it off for cast off clothing.   She has  a  husband   who  sews  from  morning  to  night   putting ,the   clothes   into   salable  shape and jx' son who goes around  the  country with her to carry her 'great packages of linen.   Then there are daughters  and other sons who wait on people in the  store and a brother-in-law who keeps the  books.   It must be a pretty good business  that supports so many persons.  The linen woman comes to'a town with  two trunks full of fine linen and goes to  a. cheap boarding house. The next day  she hires a wagon, and, with her big son  to drive and do the heavy work, she  starts on her route. A week before she  has but a line in the local paper saying  that she would be around on that date,  and so she goes straight to the postoflice  to get requests for calls. She goes over  ber mail careiully. She knows who among  those who have sent for her are worth  calling on and who are uot.  She is a welcome visitor. The linen is  brought into the house and spread out, a  tempting sight for the housekeeper. Then  the old clothes are brought out, and .the  linen woman goes over them with a sharp  G3*e.. She, is merciless in her'criticism. Ay  article highly colored she will take only  when high colors are' in favor among  those who 'mal.c_.the- styles. You are  amazed at this, .and the linen woman explains:       ���������        . *     ���������"..'���������/  "All,'them miners' wives, they are very  particular. They 'read the newspapers,  and they see the fashion magazines, and  thoy know..what is .the style. They will  take only those things that are the style,  .������������������and you cannot make them take anything,  "jelse. They,.know what's what, just like  stU-, of"you, and they will only buy Avhat  the >ieh are wearing. Why do I come  here from Scranton, which has so many  more people and where I can get just as  good and better things for my linen?  Why do I go to all this expense? I'll tell  you., With everything I sell I have to'  give ia guarantee that it was not bought  or traded iu Scranton. They won't buy  anything I get at home, and so I don't do  any trading in Scranton at all. You see,  they are afraid the original owner will  come along and see it oh them, and they  are very proud���������oh, my, very proud, indeed."  And all of this is very true. The miner's wife and his daughter are as particular about being in the fashion as their  richer sisters, and they won't take old  fashioned things. The linen woman has a  good eye for values from' her standpoint,  and it doesn't take her long to go through  Accomplished 'Princess.

HAS NO DIVORCE LAWS!  t ������������������  Some   Fucts   and,statistics on the   _Iarri-  aje Question 'lliut -ire of Almost  Universal interest. ,  Newfoundland is the only British  possession where a divorce is unprocurable. , The colony has no divorce  laws and recognizes , no interference  with the marriage relation.  In1 the Australian, colonies divorce  is recognized as a necessity "to the  constitutional machinery, and while  the laws are rigid, still evidence of  infidelity will accomplish its attainment.     / '  In South' Africa also tho courts are  clothed with power to .dissolve , "'the  marriage vows for adequate reasons,  and the aid of this .convenience is  frequently' called upon. , * ,  In Canada, the .procuring of ,a divorce is a very dilncult and expensive  operation and necessitates the presenting of evidence of the? most conclusive character. The influence' of  the Catholic Chur.ch, .opposed to di-  voi'cc the world over, made ' itself  'felt through' the delegates from Quebec when the Canadian Constitution  was being framed. They ,stubbornly  resented the proposal to vest the  power of divorce in the'courts. Only  22 divorces have been granted in tile  34 years that Canada has been a  federation. , -  Newfoundland is "stricter-still,  ,and  refuses to recognize divorces.       This  attitude 'is  due  to  the predominance  ' of' the Irish' Catholic element in the  population. ���������* .

Not among a peopled like that', who  are face to face, with death as an  almost daily incident in their ^existence, ' "would a divorce mill find  material, nor would a demand come  from them for such-an accessory 'to  the existing legal institutions.  The nearest approach to ^divorce  which" is recognized-there-is a, judicial separation of man and wife,, for  drunkenness, desertion, ill treatment  or the like. The husband is almost  invariably, in fault, and is condemned  to pay the wife a weekly share of  his earnings, on penally of imprison-  ���������ment, the judge fixing the 'alimony.  Of course this arrangement implies  no permission for cither to marry  again. Strange to say, though infidelity is a ground for such separation it is rarely pleaded, there being  only two instances in ten years, and  then toy wronged husbands against  erring wives.  Proof of it releases the husband  from any obligation to support the  wife and gives him custody of his  children. * Women there never advanco  this plea, 'preferring to endure private grief to creating public scandal.  so prominent a( feature in the centre of the Town of Stratford-on-  Avon.

Estimate of I-_.ni_r Alfred.  "The historian of the English people  asserts   that  what made     Alfred  great, small as was his sphere of action,  was thp moral grandeur of   his  life.     He lived solely for the good of  his people.     He laid the foundations  for a uniform system of law, and he  started schools, 'wishing    that every  free-born youth who had the    means  should  'abide  at his  book till he can  understand English  writing.'    He invited scholars from other lands      to  settle in  England,   but  what      most  told  on   English  culture  was      done  not by them,  but by the King   himself.     He 'resolved to throw open to  his people in their-own tongue      the  knowledge  which till then had    been  limited to  the  clergy,'  and he  'took  his  books   as   ho  found  them,'       the  popular   manuals   of   the   day,    .Bcclc  and Bocthius and   Orosius.    These he  translated   with  his  own  hand,   editing freely,  and expanding and      contracting as he saw fit; 'Do not blame  me if any know Latin better than I,'  he    explained     with modest dignity;  ���������for     every    man     must  say      what  he says and .must do what he     does  according to his ability.' And Green,  from whom this  quotation is      borrowed,   insists vthat'.   'simple  as   was  his  aim,   Alfred  created  English  literature'���������the English literature which  is still alive and sturdy after a thousand years, and which is to-day flourishing     not     only  in  Great Britain,  whore Alfred founded it, but here in  the United States, in a larger   land,  the existence of which the good King  had    no reason     ever    to  surmise."

"What a contrast the legal profession  presents to the medical in respect to holidays,", said a well known New York  physician the other day. " A medical man  rarely) until he has attained the highest I  position, thinks of taking a clear two J  mouths and the greater number regard  themselves as exceptionally fortunate if  they get a clear three weeks, whereas  lnwyers and judges take their three  mouths at a stretch, and as much as another month more at odd times.

Of a certain Scottish professor the following story is told: Among his students  was a young man from the highlands  who, before he left his country home,  had taken to himself a helpmeet for life.  One morning he entered the college classroom rather late, and the professor asked  him the cause of his unwonted unpunctu-  ality. Bashfully the young man explained that that morning his wife had given  birth to a son and heir.  "Oh, in that case it's all right!" said  the teacher, making the usual stereotyped  reply. "Only see it does not happen  again."  Wonderfully Named Organizations  to Provide For Members' Sieli^IJene-  fits   and   Funeral   Expenses ��������� How  t Tliej- Flonriuli In Charleston.  The southern negro's love of pomp  and circumstance is nowhere exempli-,  fied more forcibly than in the'manner  in ' which he'1 multiplies his charitable  organizations.     Inordinately   fond   of  company, he has few societies founded ,  with the sole view of promoting social -  enjoyment.    For the most part, what-,  ever   foundations   he   makes   have   a  scmireligious trend, the dues entitling  members to sick benefits,and funeial  expenses.    There is - usually an clabo- -  rate   regalia  and  an intricate   ritual.  Not a few negroes of a'southern city,' 1  such as Charleston,r belong (to"no less ���������  than a score of these orders, the names  of which are oftentimes curiously and  ���������wonderfully maeJe.' What, for instance,  would the ordinary patron of secret or-'  sanitations ,think of possessing membership   in   the 'Sons   and   Daughters.' ���������  of, rthe Seven Golden Candlesticks In  Charity or in the Sons and Daughters  of I Will Arise? *  The sons and daughters Idea is worked'to the limiLTof'endurance.   There is',  scarcely.a. well known name in Biblical *',  history  that is  not tacked  on  to  it.  There'are in-'Charleston alone ho less \  than 'seventy-five   of, these   societies-',  with charters from the state'of.

Often tbe police have to interfere   to   restore   that   harmony   in  ���������which brothers and sisters should ever .   _  dwell together.  Among the cocieties in Charleston  are the Sons and Daughters of the Pil- ' r  grims, the Sons and Daughters of the  Twelve Disciples, the Sous and Daughters of the Bearer of the Cross, the  Sons and Daughters of the Evening  Star, the Sons and Daughters of the  Seventh Star, the Sons and Daughters  of the Celestial Travelers, the Sons,  and Daughters of the Good Samaritan,  the' Sons and Daughters of the tEast,  the Sons and Daughters pf Lazarus,  the Sons and Daughters of Christian  Love, and there might be added to  these fully twoscore of others. . The  devotion of the negroes to these organizations and their loyalty to their  fellow members are absolute.  The funeral of a colored man or  woman who holds membership in a  half dozen of these orders is a spectacle worth witnessing. Occasionally  bitter feuds arise between rival societies for the possession of a corpse,  for the negro's love of a funeral is not  second even to his love of melons. The  ceremonies usually begin the nigbt before the actual interment is to take  place. There are sermons, prayers and  personal experiences intorspiced with  wild bursts of incoherent m������lody,  which arouses religious fervor to fever  height. Men and women faint in the ;  course of u the exercises, many others  fall into trances and talk of visions of.  their dead friends enthroned in glory.  The ceremonies culminate in a formal procession. It is forming for an  hour before the residence; of the late  lamented' son or daughter. Negroes  from the uttermost parts of the city  gather in the.streets.. The occasion is a  festive one. They run and sbout and ,  caper. The members of the organizations to which the dead person belonged stand in solemn order, clad in elaborate uniforms and bearing the banners and other insignia of their respective orders,^"and when the. cortege  finally moves, wrending its .way at  times through miles of- the city's  streets, it is followed byja mad, rush  of men, women and children, who '  block the thoroughfares, and traffic for,  the time being has-to be suspended.  The hope of such a funeral is the inspiration of many a negro'siwbole life. ,  He slaves and deprives himself of  actual necessities for years to meet  the demands of the collectors of the  societies in order that he may go to  bis last resting place in the midst of  such strangely weird nageantry.������������������  .Charleston Letter  *& "  - !i  ni  <������������������  H  l  ���������v.  *���������   i  ��������� 11  <i ,.  .-, -������-��������� r-  ,.,_-������. :*--���������  ���������v  ff  .-.r  *  ������s*_ *-v*.v-m  THE,C[JMBERT_A]\rD NEWS  CUMBERLAND/ B.C.

I am 75 years old,  and  have lived   in    Bat * Portafcjo for  the  past 18 yc-iars1.   Some months ago my  wife asked me to get her some Dodd's  Kidney Pills.   She was suffering from  some kidney trouble,  and desired to  try Dodd's   Kidney P'lls.    I     finally  got   her   a box,    but she never lived  to tako them.  .Haying little, faith in  patent    "medicines,  I    however,   was  soon forced to change my opinion. I  had long     been     neglecting     similar  symptojms to thoso of'my wifetthese  now became very severe.   Having- the  box  of Dodd's Kidney Pills    in   the  ���������house, I thought 1 might as- well try  them.   I suffered  terribly  with  pain  across my back with a scalding sensation   when urinating.      Well,     the  first box stopped    these    symptoms,  and continuing    their__use I became  ���������cdanpleitely cured.    All the ci'tizerns of  Rat  Portage  were   grca.tly  surprised  at the  change in my appearance, ���������   I  can' tell  you.      They(    often  used  to_  greet me with,   "Hello, Mr.  Barnes !  Why how smart you   are  looking !"  They    were   not   far    astray: I felt  smart,  too,   and younger and in.  bet-'  ter health than for yoars.

If a few drops are taken in water when the  symptoms are noticed, no further trouble will  bo experienced.  Fever and ague and bilious dera_ gemonta c  are positively cured by the use of Parraelee'a  Pills. They not only cleanse the stomach  and bowels from all bilious' matter, but they  open the excretory vessels, causing them to  pour copious effusions from the blood into  the howcls, after which tho corrupted mass  is threwn out by the natural passage of the  body. They aro used as a general family  medicine with the best results.  '-.<  The   coal   dealer  may  not   cut   any  ice,  bul he gets tliero just tne sauna.

'��������� 'The  news of  the singing 'of. the  contract' will be received with great  satisfaction   throughout   the   Province. -The western terminus' being-  fixed, at,Victoria  will, be a, great  ' advaritage"to that important city,  and, alsd to Nanaimo, Ladysmith  , and Union, which being'in such  * proximity to the coal'mines are  destined to -become flourishing in-  dustritil' centres,v strange, ,to say,  alihough the construction of the  Canadian Northern^Transcontinen-  tar Railway means so much for  Victoria and the Island generally,  some of her prominent citizens are  very hostile to the Government's  railway policy. Messrs Helmcken  and Mc'Phillips, M.P.P.'s, are to be  found-in the ranks of the malcontents, and the Evening Times newspaper is doing all that it can do to  throw cold water on- the undertaking. J But the'opposition will prove  ' a failure. We are informed by our  Victoria correspondent that no  sooner was the fact made known  that the contract for the construction of the road had been signed,  than a "great reaction had set in  and it is now conceded that the  Government' candidate, Col. Prior,  will go* in with an overwhelming  majority. Premier Dunsmuir and  his colleagues may well fell proud  at the suecesri of their great measure  for the {development of the Island  and the" benefit of the Province  generally. .   .'  In the' Legislature on Monday  afternoon, March 3rd, the, Premier,  in'reply to a question asked, by Mr  Gilmour, one of the members for  City, said a .copy of the contract  with MacKenzie & Mann would.be  placed before the House as soon, as  possible. ;  A Soldier who pleaded guilty to  stealing a watch and chain said  that he ccmmitted the theft in the  hope of getting turned out of the  army. After his three months hard  labour be will probably discover  that he has not stuleh in.vain.  Dear  Mrs   B , 'in reply to vour inquiry as to which is the be<u tea to us-e, I  wo3d say that in inv opinion it'rests between the Blue Ribbon and Monsoon  Packet Te's If you like nch, strong tea, then Blue R.bbon .a undoub.eclh the  best bui should your taste be for a delicate and very flavory tea 1 would advice  you to call'on C. J. MOORE for a packet of Monsoon. Personally, I drink Blue  ffiori in the morning and Monsoon at 5 o'clock, but then,  you  know,   1   am  a  perfect crank about tea. -  ���������        Yours truly, ^^ GRUNDy.  3^  WHARF,   NOTES.���������  S.S.
