Tht*    whole trend of his letter   seems to be the appointment of  . road    .foreman,    which is in itself a  small thing, but goes to show how  an  unthinking alderman may  be forced to vote   the same way in something-   more    important.

Such things as these  arc sadly     neglected in this town, I  am. sorry lo    say,.and we can never  have a good town unless we support  each other    in an   amicable way and  give to the rroper person regardless  of party-affiliations what belongs, to  him.   1  am  glad  to see Walloper refer to (his   .matter as I would many  other matters which deserve the public    condemnation.   A.s a     matter of  fact we   have a fire by-law inaugurated  last    summer,  the   six days notice given and what is the result, we  have as many if not more stove pipes  now than before wc had that bylaw.  Another     nuisnace    is   that  infernal  coon .-dive   which     is a veritable fire  trap  where     gambling is carried on  and    colored   ' women are   imported  from the    slums of     Sound Cities to  flaunt their infamy before a respectable    community     where    oven young  boys can   go and see    the most disgraceful    actions      , and  all this allowed to go on and for what?     Just  to    satisfy a     selfish ambition.

Through  the departure of President Gompers  for Day ten, Ohio, last night,      the  chief influence  upon  which  hopes of  peace    were centered   was  removed.  Encouraged by the efforts at mediation, Mr. Gompers decided to renew  his  neg.tiations- tomorrow.    The  al-  dermanic committee held conferences  today with representatives of     the  teamsicrs and with thc ^attorney for  the  employers.    The  most encouraging phase of the situation today    is  the    change of front on the part of  the  teamsters in  forming into negotiations with thc team owners   ;nd  considering a proposition from     that  body to arbitrate the question     of  deviliers    to the  boycotted-houses.

President Shea, of the Teamsters'  Union, when told .of the action of tho  Mayor and Sheriff, said:-"There- is  no man in this world that has power to call this strike off or make any  such settlement."

The present.truce'-is.expected to  be broken only by the Japanese. They  are showing every evidence of preparation to assume the oH-ensivo, constantly shifting 'positions and pressing the Russian left wing where cavalry forces are daily forcing matters.  Demonstrations on thc left wing are  probably only feints to cover the  real attack on -the right. This is.  thought to' be more probable because  of the care with which the Japanese  are screening their movements. on  their left, using'-Chinese bandidt'free-  for this purpose.

Thc Japanese sent at least one vessel across the Pacific last year, ;.uic-  ceeded  in getting a big cargo, sailed  iback to the island kingdom, and cleared what to them would appear    immense profits on their operations.  It  is a general belief that this chance of  prospective gain,  more than the average  Japanese  laborer  would  earn  in his  own country during an ordinary lifetime,  has been the main incentive to fitting out these poaching  craft.

It appears that  the  deceased   received   internal  injuries, both his kidneys and lungs being  damaged.  . His  head  was  also  injured.     The death of Mr. Allin is rendered doubly sad, by the,.fact that his  wife'  died -about  a year  and  a half  ago,    leaving  him  Avith  three little  children, the eldest being under eight  5rears.

His mind  is on the superintendent, his particular  superintendent, who is watching him  at the side of the arena, and who, when  he gees off, is sure to ask very pointedly how his eye happened to be inaccurate or his muscles infirm.   There is  no place in the circus for performers  who fail.  ������������������ Even the clowns look a little bit serious behind the scenes.    But perhaps  that, is only  because the black lines  they paint on their whitened visages  are always so glum and solemn.

Some of the greatest discoveries in  physics and chemistry have been made  with the simplest forms of apparatus  and under the most modest conditions  of laboratory equipment.

As regards the latter, a comment of  Lord Rayleigh is of interest    Stokes'  experimental work, he says, was executed with the most modest appliances.

Their  Lonely,   Hrcary Life  Ttiiiln   to  Drive Tli^iu: Crusy,  Do you realize 'what it means to  watch 5.000 sheep alone in the desert?  You have' read weird, grewsouid stories  of the horror of the solitary lighthouse  keeper's life, but compared to the'days  ..of the.* Mexican.'Shepherd those'of the  average keeper of the light are filled  with gayety anel noise. Kvei\_jyith  their one or iavo dogs the shepherds  of ten go insane, anel were it not for the  company of their shaggy collies the  lunacy among them would rise to an  almost incredible percentage; if we are  to believe those who have followed the  sheep in the desert and therefore may  be supposed to know.  Once in old Santa Fe, N. M., I met a  man who for twelve years had followed the sheep. His work was done. All  day long he sat in a chair in the rear  of a little dobe store, crouched over,  gibbering to himself, bleating���������an idiot.  He still saw his sheep swaying like a  great white wave among the sagebrush, and ever in his ears sounded the  killing monotone of their bleats. One  boy,' though fifteen years of age, is  mentally no further advanced than the  average child of five. His father is a  shepherd, his mother died when he was  four years old, nnd liis father took him  oiit upon the range. All-his life has  been spent among the sheep; He is one  with, tlieni today.  How is it possible, then, you ask, that  men are to be..found Willing to watch  them? It is very easy. Sheep herding  is a lazy job at best, and the "greaser"  is the laziest creature on earth. For $20  a month he Is willing to sit in the sand  and listen to the never ending bleating  until the little mind he has gives way  nnd they fetch him in from the range  insane. He is glad to take the chance  for -ISO a month.  The greaser is not the only shepherd  in the west. - On the vast ranges, of Nevada and Wyoming you may run across  an occasional college man tending the  sheep. Once, indeed, a college professor,  ill of consumption, undertook to follow  5,000 blcaters for the summer. '��������� In autumn they found him insane, ?on his  hands and knees among the sheep,  bleating with them. Day after day his  eyes .behold only a brilliant turquoise  sky, in which hangM-n sun of brass; an  ocean sweep of sage flecked sand and  a slowly moving, compact mass of  sheep. His ears hear no sound save the  steady "Baa, baa!" day and night, affecting him as the Chinese criminal of  ancient days was affected by thc regular tap, tap of a hidden drum.  And yet so long as the desert continues to provide food for the "bleaters"  so long will shepherds go mad among  the flocks, and for ten years the desert's  greatest value to man has been the  fooel it has'offered the sheep, nor yet is  the store'depleted.���������IMlgrim.

Here arc the three deadly symptoms  of old age: Selfishness, stagnation, intolerance.  | If we find them iii ourselves we may  know",we are growing old, even if we  are on the merry side of thirty. " But,  happily, we have three defenses, which  nre invulnerable. If we use them we  shall die young if we live to be a hundred. They are: Sympathy progress,  tolerance.  The first is the hardest to most of  us, because our own little prison of  the actual Js so immensely important to  us. There is no denying the* fact that  Avlieii you have a toothache yourself it  is hard to. have to.consider other people's nclies. But it can be done, though  it generally involves physical effort, for  we must bestir ourselves and act. The  mere feeling of sympathy expressed- by  action is ii poor, useless thing, but the  soul*"determined not to grow old, 'enforce the body to such physical effort,  though there is no denying that it- is  hard work.  Tootlinclic.  Toothache is something to be dreaded. Until a dentist can be consulted  anel the exact cause of the disturbance  located and professionally treated it is  an excellent thing to moisten the finger  and, after dipping it into some bicarbonate of soda, rub it on the gum round  the sore tooth. It is also a relief to  mix a teaspoonful of this bicarbonate  - of soda in half a glass of warm water  and rinse the 'mouth with some every  little while, holding a little in the  mouth for a few seconds so that it  penetrates all the crevices. The soda,  being an alkali, serves to neutralize the  acids in the mouth, which are often the  cause of toothache.  Just received a large consignment  20> 25. and 30c.
