They live huddled  together in    their  ..comfortless abodes amid squalor and  dirt, unkept and unclean, a sight one  can  ne.ver efface  from niemoTy;     and  then     one     reflects upon  the hidden  wealth      of this     niysljcal country,  with   its great arid ./wonderful.

THE HOT BLAST  IN TYE.6 SMELTER  Tomorrow  the Tyee smelter     will  close down for about three weeks,'resuming work again about A; rM  1st.  During the present closing down the  hot blast system will be installed in  the smelter and if it proves the success that is expected, all lhc ore, or  very nearly all that is treated here-  ! after by the Tyee, will be by the (hot  ! blast.    This will, of course, do away  with  the roasting  of ore outside.  If  the system   is as successful as prom- '  iscs, the Ia.ct of the smoke and fumes  passing direct into a higher current  of air will largely do away willi the  smoke that is now at times so distinctly inown lo be present, especially along the water front and over tho  bay.

What lhe merits of their  grievances &ere_Ido not know; but  1 do know that every man in that  mob, had the emperor spoken a few  kindly words and listened to them,  would have gone to his home a greater patriot' than he was before.

The extensive changes', were  made  in  a single  day,   a.nd much to  the surprise of everybody concerned.  The great oud chief strategy of the,,  reorganization  lies  in fthe conccntra-,  tionof Great Britain's naval strength  in a line irom the mouth" oi the lios-  phorus  to   the  mouth of  the   Baltic.

(   By  JUaiguret    Glenn.   ) <  For many years the city of Troy  had held out against thc attacks of  the Greeks.   Brave men, such as Hector, Achilles und Paris, had fallen on  both sides.    At last Epcius,  by  rhe  advice of   Athene,   planned   a schema  whereby Troy was taken, 'lhc Greens  pretended to have given up thc siege.  They did,not **go' far, but hid behind  an island a few miles from the city.  On the Trojan shore they left a large  wooden horse;   inside of  which     the  bravest chiefs were concealed.  Next morning the Trojans gathered  ro.und the liorse, not knowing whether  to  ta1-e it  into  the city  or  not,  when  a cunning  G reek   who  had   allowed-himself to In made a prisoner,  said    it  would  be a safe-guard     to  Troy.   The deceived Trojans carried  the     horse  to  the     citadel.      That  night they had a good time for they  thought      the war was over.     WVhilc*  they weie      enjoying  themselves  Ilie  Greek fleet    silently returned.     The  chiefs came out of thc house and opened the     gates of   lhe city for the  Greeks to enter.     They then set fire  to'the t   city and in thc battle Ihat  followed the Trojans were totally de-^  lea ted,    (bus Troy fell. ~~"   o ;   HIS    LAMKNKSS GREW.

He  year that the, .memory of his bravery  might be ever near him.  One day, late inhis life, as he sat  nursing- his teg and pondering the  glorious past, a young man, visiting  the family for the ' fust time, approached and sympathetically remarked'  " Lame, general?
