"Look here, Joe," said Farmer'Hurlburt, who prided himself on bis plain  speaking, "I have, said that you were  one of tbe best young fellers in this  county, but you ain't just the match for  Bessie. She's smart and good looking  and one of the sort who, ought to live  in town and wear.silks and satins instead of plodding away on a farm. I  don't want to hurt your feelings, but I  wish you'd look around for some other  girl."  "You want,her to marry the wire  fence man, I take it," said Joe in reply.  "Yes, Joe; I do. - He's got money.  He's making more of it. He'll be as  rich as Vanderbilt in ten 'years more.  He offered to lend me $30 the other  day without any security at all. He's  not only in tbe wire fence business,,  but he's into windmills and drainpipe  and patent farm gates. He's going  into a speculation next week in which  he will clear $3,000 or $4,000 in no time  at all, and mebbe I'll go in with him.  You ain't expecting to make a dollar  extra this'year, nnd so"���������  "I'm looking for oil down along the  creek," interrupted Joe."  "Can't be none there, Joe; can't be  no oil in this county. I, like .you as  a man, Joe, but being you haven't got  money I shall have to ask you to stay  away after, this. It may take your  appetite away for a -few days, but  you'll get over it in a week and shine  up to one of Jim Gardner's girls." j  Bessie was told- at tbe same time  that she would be expected to discourage Joe and encourage tbe other one,  and, though she promptly rebelled, her  parents put the foot down in a'most  vigorous way. In a manner the field  was left clear for the wire fence man.  Unfortunately for him, he wns a  boaster and a braggart. He was making a few dollars, but could not count  on anything permanent. He realized |  that if he got the farmer's daughter at  all it would be through the aid of ,  money, and he began to plan and  scheme. j  Circumstnnces aided him. - One day  ' dan and got married." *  .  "In reply Farmer Hurlburt got up and  ;took young Beechman by the collar  and slammed him up agninst the fanning mill-nnd then jammed hi in up  against the granary door and then walloped bim all over the floor and ended  by throwing him outdoors and sending  a kick after bim. Then he turned to  the newly made husband and held out  'ins hand and said:  "Joe .Green, there's only one fool in  the  Hurlburt  family,   anel   that's  me.  .Let's,go in and have some cider, and  kiss the bride."

In a strict sense the oldest patent  medicine wus one patented by Timothy  Byfield Oct. 22, 1711 (No. 3SS), for "a  new and most vseful eliimicall prep-  aracon and medicine, publickly known  by the name of his 'sal olcosum volatile,'  which by aboundnnt experience hath  been found very helpful] and beneficial] as well for vses medicinal! as others and will very much tend to the public vse nnd benefit of all our subjects."  The ingredients of this medicine are  not named.  The next patent medicine is No. 300,  April    3,   1712,   granted   to    Richard  he received a private nnd confidential '��������� Stougbton, for "a new nnd most vse-  letter from New York. An individual  in that city bad got possession of a  bank note plate and was printing  greenbacks by the tens of thousands.  He was willing that others should  share in his good luck. He was so  willing that be would sell greenbacks  for 10 cents on the dollar and warrant  them to pass current anywhere. It was  ful restorative cordial and medicine,  known by the name of 'Stoughton's  elixir magnum stomachicu,' or 'the  great cordial elixir,' otherwise called  the stomatick tincture, or bitter  drops.'"  After a break of ten yenrs a pateni  was granted to Robert Eaton on April  38, 1732, for a "new stiptiok medicine."  "DEAB ME!    I   DON'T   EVEN-'KNOW 'Y0UB  '     ' NA������E'" i  dear!

VIt isn't!" cried Allena in wrath. "It  .was just saintly when I kissed him."  "You kissed him! You dreadful  child! Come home at once. You!  Judge Raceway's daughter! Why, the  man might have had 'consumption���������  or���������or 'germs. He may have given  them to you!"  "He gave me his picture, anyway,  nnd you and your old germs cun go  to pot," retorted Allena Impolitely.  "Say, you needn't drag me along,  Charlotte Spicer.

The crowd Jostled him,  biit lie didn't move along. A flashily  dressed man seized his arm.  ,, "You're shaky this morning, boy,"  he accosted cordially. "Let's get inside. I'll bieak a small bottle with  you. That will put you on your feet."  "I'm on my feet now," returned the  other roughly.    "Let me ulone!"  His companion stared. "Curly!" he  coaxed good nnturedly. "Come on,  now. Don't stand here in the sun.  Yes, yes, I know how a fellow feels  sometimes. It's tlie nerves. Settle  'em, and you'll be nil right."  "You don't know bow I feel. Joe,  'and you never will," smiling queerly.  "I've had an experience. Just say to  the crowd that I've cut my hair, nnd  the sooner they forget Curly the better it will please me. Say I'm Todd  Sbipman now, the same who came  among you two yenrs ago, when I  wns kicked out of college. Joe, I'm  twenty-one today. Lord knows, I  want n drink, but I don't tnke it.

There is a language of umbrellas as  of flowers." Place your umbrella,in a  rack, and this will indicate that it will  change owners.    An  umbrella  carried  over a woman, tlie'man getting nothing  but the drippings of the rain, .signifies  courtship. "When the man has the umbrella and the woman the drippings it  indicates marriage.   To swing your um-  ,  brella over your head signilies "I am  making a nuisance of myself."   To carry it nt right nngles  under your arm.  signifies that an eye is to be  lost by  the man who'follows you.   Opening nn.  umbrella'quickly, it is said, will flight- -  en a mad bull.    To put a cotton urn- -  brella by tlie side of a silk,one signifies,   "Exchange   is-no   robbery."    To.  purchase an   umbrella   means,   "I  am.  not smart,  but honest."    To lend an  -  umbrella indicates. "I am a fool."   To -*���������  return an umbrella means���������well, never -  mind what it means; nobody ever does .  that.   To carry an umbiell.i just high  enough   to  tear  out   men's   eyes'and  knock off men's bats signifies, "I am  a woman."    To press an  umbrella on  your friend, saying, "Oh. do take it;-1  .had much rather you would than not,"  signifies lying.   To cany it from home  in the morning means, "Tbe rain will  clear off."  Conveyed n.n'nrnlnir,  The Rev. Dr. Snow, Uncling himself  downtown at the noon hour, dropped  into a icstaurant for a luncheon. He  hung his overcoat ngainst the wall, sat  down and ordered bis meal, which be  ute leisurely. When he had finished  nnd turned to look for bis overcoat, it  was gone.  He reported bis loss to the cashier,  who was sorry, but could no nothing,  as the restaurant was "not re&ponsible-  for bats, overcoats or umbrellas."  "Oh, I am not holding you responsible," stiid the doctor, a3 he paid the  bill.   "I shall get the coat again."  "What makes you think so?" asked  tho cashier.  "In one of the pockets," he replied,  "was a letter, with my name and address on the envelope, and in another  pocket was a printed sermon on 'Future runishment.'   Good day."  ITIs confidence was not misplaced.  The overcoat was brought to his house  the next day by a inc-senger boy. who  said a strnncer Intel sent it and that  there was no message.���������Youth's Com-  nnr.'on. , THE KOOTENAY MAIL  Zbe IRootena^ flDail  IJUIHASIIKD  SATURDAY.  ���������AT��������� '  REVELSTOKE.

The railway service complained bitterly of the method of  lowing the former tax, and carried  the appeal against it to the highest  court. They argued reasonably  enough that their 'income over  amount-of exemption was mainly  derived from extra hard work put  in as overtime, and as *ich the tax  ttas ar gros= injustice, but the  promise, like most of their  other promises, was made  to deceive the railway men and  ���������ret their'votes. and with no seriou  .ADMINISTRATION OF,J UST1CE  The administration of justice in  British  Columbia   is  becoming  a,  public scandal.'1   We  recently  referred  tb  the   mischief   done_the  mining industry  by the gratuitous  lemarks   and     decisions   of    two  supreme court judges, who put oif  the law an- interpretation contrary  to common sense oV justice, and in  direct  contradiction 'of" the clear  intention   of 'the lawmakers.   The  result has been  that'the adminis-  .tra'tioivof the law has been brought  into contempt in some qunrteis.,  Then  at   Vancouver   the  other  "day the,city'magistrate, a  pet appointee of the McBride government,  refused to allow Joe Martin, one-of  the ablest lawyers' iri the province,  lOexainino a Certain nfikltivitlnade  hi a case vital lo his client, and on  Mr.-Martin ihsisting'on, his  right  lhe'magistrate had him turned out  'of court by the police.

When      interviewed,     Sir  Henri said he' was delighted with bis  trip to England; for he had been cord-  jally lcccived everywhere.   The people  were much, interested   ih   Canada and  the progress of  the Canadian people.  The LorelsAf the Judicial Committee  '  liati been most obliging.and cordial in  their treatment of tho members of the  Canadian n Bar, and   had  extended  to  them every possible courtesy. ,  Sir Henri was'asked what effect the  Dundonnld episode  had   in 'England,  and if it was true that he had expressed h msclf 'publicly   on   the  matter.  He said that  he had never  attended  any  public, 'or   political   dinners   or  given expression  to, any public utter-  i iince whatsoever respecting 'the'Dundonald matter. "The first intimation,".  ', said Sir Henri, "I'had  that I was ac-  'cused  of expressing  myself in public  '  in   regard   to/Lord -Dundonald   was  ���������when the newspapers reached the ship  at Rimouski, and   I   read - them  on  "board this morning.    When the Dun-  ' donald matter  first  became public in  England, the 'public  were  not given  . the  details, and "it caused  a .feeling  against Canada, and  led   them to believe that  our people," were disloyal,  laifc as soon as the particulars respecting tlie affair were  made public, the  people of England turned right around  and   blamed   Lord' Dundonald, .and  later, when   he   made  his   speech   in  Toronto', the   feeling   was  altogether  against him, and even his own friends  called.him a fool, and blamed him for  acting   ra.-hly.    In   every  direction I  turned 1  heard   the  same comments.  jSTo one 'more deeply deplores his break  -with the 'dominion   government  than  J do.    The authorities in En gland, aro  ���������very much put out over the affair, and  it y. ill .be ditiicult for L'ord Dundonald  to  get'luck   on   full _ pay *when   he  reaches England.    His place*lias been  Tilled by others,.who are   not likely to  relinquish   their   advantage,   aiid    no  "doubt he wi'l have  to  remain'on half  -pay, unless England becomes involved  in war and requires his sei vices.    One  general, who distinguished   himself in  South  Africa,, jocularly   reniarkecl in  company  where   I   was:    -Well,  our  next   war,   I   suppose,  will   be   with  Canada!'   This was only  the expression of the thought of a  great many  others, who  were  not  at, the time in  possession  of  the  facts, but when all  the circumetances  in   the  case  were  ���������made known   in   England   the  sentiment   ot   the   public   underwent an  extraordinary change. '  POLITICAL  Mr. Burrill. conservative  candidate  ior Yale-Caiiboo, spent last, week call  ing on electors  of  Spallumch. en and  Okanagan.  'J. A. Macdonalcl, Stuart Henderson,  J. Murphy. M. L. a's., Duncan Ross  and Denis Murphy all went into Lil-  looet this week to take a hand bi the  "bye-election there on behalf of the  liberals.  It, is reported that Hon. Capt. Tat-  *"low. provincial treasurer, is so dissatisfied with the administration of  the McBride government that he  proposes resigning his portfolio, and  that F. C. C. Cotton, M. L. A., will  succeed him as treasurer.  Three member.- who supported the  McB.ielc government last --c-sion (li���������  approve of their administration so  ���������strongly they may vote against them  at next se.-sion of the legislature, ft  is considered by many in touch with  the political situation that the liberal  party under J.

'  John Oliver, M. L. A., addressed  meetings la-t week at Lillooet and  Clinton. He thoroughly exposed the  iiial-adininisti-.-ition of the McBride  government, their enormous increase  of taxation at  a  time when the prov  ince could ill afford it, and tbe fact  that they were in this election, defending a member of the house for a  gross brea.h of the privileges of parliament by drawing money for services  other than as a legislator. He pointed  out the rotten condition into which  public life would drift were, the condition of things which the govetnment  candidate sought to establish allowed  to continue. He asked the electors to  turn down that kind of thing once for  all, and endeavor to establish a higher  and purer plane' of public life in the  province. A. Macdonalcl, the govern;  ment candidate, was invited to attend  Mr, Oliver's meeting at Clinton and  defend himself, but was afraid to do  so, and kept away' from that meeting.  When the meeting was announced at  Lillooet he rushed away to Clinton so  as to escape that meeting too. 'All  efforts to get liim on the platform  have so far proved unavailing. Premier  McBride might as well have put up n  bioomstick iind asked the electors to  support that.    ' ���������      ,  VERNON.  From Our.Own  Correspondent.

The  lead'driven oft' by the roasting may be  recovered if desired.      The ore is then  conveyed to a cooling floor, and afterwards dumped into ten 5-foot amalgamating tanks,  through tho bottom of  which steam is   injected  to   assist in  amalgamation.    ' The charge  is nevt  run to five S-ft. settling tanks.
