The employees at the .St.Eugenc  mill in Moyio are asking for an  eight hour day.       "'  Thos.    Corkill,   a   well-known  miner of this district, was killed  on the Great Northern track near  Phoenix Saturday night last.. Deceased has been a resident, of the  district for about nine   years,   his  first work here being, on the  Mc-  Intyre&Luhdy contract in the Old  Ironsides shaft at Phoenix in  the  fall of 1897.    Hejwas interested in  a number of claims,  among them  the Great Laxey group near Eholt,  now under boud to Eastern parties.  He was a native of the Isle of Man,  where his mother, aged  80,  and  three sisters reside.    Three brothers are in America, one.in Nevada,  one in Alaska,  and the residence  of the other unknown.     The de-  ceased was well thought of .by .Jail  who knew him, always cheerful)'.;a  good miner and honest.     Letters  on bis person showed that he contributed largely-to the .support,'of  his aged mother.     He sent each  year at Christmas time a !sum" of  money to her, and at the time of  his death had "a letter in his pocket  from his mother thanking him lfor  the last present to her.     Deceased'  was   a   member., of   Greenwood  Miners' Union.   .  Coroner Black held an inquest on  the body Tuesday. "' After the evidence was taken, a verdict of accidental dcath'.Wris returned, and exonerating the railway.oflicials from  blame. The evidence of his park  ner Thos. Kermeen, gives concisely  all the facts in relation to the accident.  Thos. Kermeen, of Phoenix, B.,  C, being sworn, ~ said, "I am a  miner. I was with Thos. Corkill,  the deceased, Saturday night about  10 o'clock," left the Alexander  hotel in Phoenix. We walked  down the Great Northern railway  track together. Thos Corkill said:  I am going to take forty winks before I go down the hill, He lay  down between the rails about 100  feet from the end of the track. I  went on down the track- four or  five hundred feet. We were alone  going to the Meadow Lark mine.  I heard the train coming and  rushed back again. Got there and  saw pilot of train roll him over. I  was asleep and the rumbling of the  train woke me. I. don't think I  heard the whistle or bell. Don't  think I saw any lights on locomotive. He was v in middle of  track when pilot struck him. . He  rolled 14 or 15 feet in front of  pilot. I picked him up. He was  not dead at time, but died in a few  minutes. Tho train stopped and  backed off. ., The engineer and fireman of ������rain came-up to me and  went and notified constable.  To jury���������End of track on Great  Northern called switchback at Y.  I told Thomas Corkill a train  was due about, that time, usually  about twelve o'cloclock. This was  tho first time we walked down  track. I don't think this is usual  way men go to mine, generally go  by milk ranch. We arrived in  Phoenix about 6 o'clock.  Tho engineer and fireman also  gave evidence.  The funeral took placo yesterday,  and was largely attonded by members of tho Miners' Union.  ify you that!'we .are to start to rebuild'the telephone system here,  and we would like to know the regulation distance for placing pole9  from lots on all streets!, The general distance we'.place poles were  12������ feet from the lot, which would  allow of your,', increasing .the  breadth of sidewalks if you wished  to do so at any time.

Telephone Co. as folr  lows:   Gentlemen:���������"I beg tonot-  A deal was consummated Tuesday whereby the Poland China  mine, located four and a half miles  east of Molson became the property  of a syndicate of Ohio capitalists.  C. A. Blatt and A. G. Edwards,  holders of the property, received  $10,000 for it. The new concern  is incorporated as the Molson Gold  Mining Co., of which H. F. Beery  and D. W. Dart, of Columbus,  Ohio, are the leading spirits. Representatives of the owners are now  en route here and immediately upon  their arrival will contract for the  erection of a concentrating mill,  and mining operations will be commenced as soon as possible. The  deal was put through  by Col.  M.  A. Smalley, of Chesaw, who during the past sixty days has turned  three transactions bringing into the  Myers Creek Mining district nearly  $40,000 in cash.  The Poland China mine consists  of three claims. It is one of tho  oldest mining properties in the  Myers Creek district, having been  located as soon as the Colville reservation was thrown open to the  miuera in 1896. ''Neal Unden and  Jerome Henkinswore the original  locators of the property.    George  B. Mocham purchased it Hhortly  after its location, for a large sum  of money, stated by some to be  $15,000.... Ho proceeded to develop  the mine and fine ore was encountered Development work to  the value of many thousands of  dollars was done at the same time  Mr. Mecham was building the town  of-Molson. At this time also he  had surveyed and constructed to  the mine, the road which is now  used as a thoroughfare from Molson  to that point and which continues  on to Chesaw. Various improvements made on the Poland China  and the road are said to have cost  Mr. Meaohara in th'e neighborhood  of $65,000, to say nothing of the  original cost of the mine.  Meacbam, despairing of railroad  transportation, it will be remembered, left the country some six  years ago and never returned. In  the vicissitudes of fortune following the property finally came into  ibe hands of C. A. Blatt and A. G.  Edwards, who iu their development work of last year, not only  proved the great value of the property, but made additional important discoveries that added largely  to its promise.  The mine having been developed  up to a point where a stamp mill  was demanded and the. coming of  the railroad having made the property negotiable, Messrs. Blatt and  Evans concluded to sell, not feeling able to install the necessary  machinery. Tho mine was placed  in the hands of Col. Smalley, and  as a resuls of his negotiations, the  Molson Gold Mining company was  incorporated by H. F. Beery, D.  W. Dart and other Ohio capitalists,  and the company purchased the  property for the flat price of. $10,-  000.  The mine is in plain view of the  public road,!,east of Molson, "and  all travelers have noticed the stacks  of sacked ore there. The ore in  the sacks, it is claimed, averages  $105 to the ton, while the ore from  another lead on the dump rnns in  access of $40. It is a free-milling  gold-bearing quartz, and Col.  Smalley estimates that the ore on  the dump, in sacks and in sight is  worth not less than $05,000.  The distance from the mine north  to the railroad is less than three  miles and an easy down grade almost all of the way, and it is only  four and one-half miles uto tho Molson station. The latter point will  probably be the shipping place as  there is no provision for a station  at the former.���������Molson Independent.  S3S J������8fi&S SSfr&SS msx&?������2&w&s%%z$  SSrSftSBS&JZflSSSB fi^&������SfS������&8SSSB������SS&  The Crescent mine is being steadily developed with a force of eight  men.   The shaft which was down  130 feet when  work  was recently  resumed  under' the   superintend-  once of W.H. Jeffery,   M.   E.,   is  being sunk with two shifts to the  200-foot level, when a 7-drilf electric compressor will be installed,  and all  sinking,  drifting,    cross-  cutting and stoping will-be carried  on  with   large and   small   drills.  Five known veins cross the property northerly,   paralleling   each  other, and all these veins  can  be  developed  by the present   .shaft,  wnich is being enlarged to carry a  skip.    The shaft is being timbered  from  the 130-foot level up,  and  when finished will be one of the  best shafts in the Boundary.    Col.  L. T. Diokason, of Chicago, is sole  owner   of   the    Crescent.       The  Colonel spent over a month   iu  Greenwood and Nelson' and was a  frequent visitor to the mine.     On  leaving for Chicago last week   he  expressed  himself as being   well  pleased with the  showing  in the  mine.    The ore, such as  will be  shipped, runs from $80 to $127 to  the ton, although like many of the  Greenwood properties,- specimens  are found that will go up into the  thousands. -     The     Crescent    is  equipped with a 20 horse power  electric hoist and a No.. 7 blower,  which furnishes air to the. underground workings aud blacksmith's  forge, all of which was installed by  E. G.   Warren,   manager   of  the  Greenwood Electric company,"' and  now Mr. "Warren is making plans  to furnish the compressor.    AVhen  all tho machinery is installed,  the  Crescent will be the best  equipped  mine in the Greenwood high-grade  belt, and the management hope to  make it one of the  largest   producers.  Scarcity of Help  The cry for help continues in  many parts of the Province and all  employers seem to be more or le?s  piuched by the shortage. In the  fruit growing districts on the coast,  a correspondent .writes that in  orchard'after orchard raspberries  and blackberries are rotting on the  ground where they have fallen because the growers cannot possibly  secure help. Even Chinamen are  out of reach, and have been monopolized by the cannery people,  who are still calling for moro men.  In the coast hayficlds tho  ranchers are forced to work night  and day in order to take advantage  of the fine weather and get the crop  safely housed.  The New Westminster fruit cannery has "tons of fruit available,  and cannot touch it because of the  scarcity of girls and boys. The  can factory tells a similar hard-luck  story. Were it not for tho Alien  Labor Law the fruit canners would  be able to rush in a lot of. skilled  girlB from San FranciScd, ���������whore  hundreds are out of employment at  the present time.  Farm laborers particularly are  very scarce inthcOkauiigan.���������The  Olcanngaii.  '  Judgo Miller says that things  are picking up in Poplar.  At 70 feet in the shaft of the  Crescent Fraction a 10-inch lead,  containing galena and gray copper  was uncovered the past week. As  in every other calling, there is more  or less luck in mining. The shaft  in which the rich lead has been discovered was formerly on the Canadian ground, but through a legal  techicality became a part of the  Crescent Fraction. Some years  ago the Canadian was under bond  to J. Jermj-n from Jas- Sutherland,  the owner. The shaft was sunk to  a depth of 65 feet and the bond  thrown up. Had Jermyn continued another five feet, he might  have discovered what is likely:.to  prove one of the richest; leads iu  the Greenwood high-grade belt.  Another shaft* was sunk ou ��������� the  Canadian to a depth of 40 feet.  This was on an iron cap. The'  shaft was abandoned and a tunnel  run 110 feet to tap the copper gold  showing at depth. Had the work  done on the tunnel and No. 2 shaft  been done on the No. 1 shaft, it  might have pi-oved a fortune to the  owners. Chicago capitalists represented by Ted Mueller, will reap  the benefit, and it is likely to prove  a very rich.one.  Louis Bosshart came in from the  West Fork Saturday last. He had  been working an the Selva, one of  a group of three claims owned bj'  him on Cedar creek, a tributary of  tho main Kettle river. Tho group  is about threo miles distant from  what in known as Tripplo Lake  camp. Tho trail to thegroupis up  Braver creek from Beaverdell  about eight milos, on the south  fork of Beaver. He has sunk three  shafts on the Selva, 20, .10; and S  feet -respectively..     Tho; lea.4   is  quartz, about 2������>feac wide carrying  gold, silver and.copper. While un  the West Fork Mr. Easshart visited the Duncan and Rambler  mines on Wallace mountain. The  Duncan is looking" well, the -rich  vein still continuing-fi:pm eighteen  inches to .three feet an width. On  the Rambler, W. H. Ramboisrun^  ning a tunnel to tap the lead-on  which he has lately b.een sinking  at a depth of aboui A hundred feet%.  Twenty -men are' employed   in  mining in the Skylark under Super- '  intenden,t Rowe, and. tjbe .output of  high.-grade ore averages about sixty  tons per month.   The lend is i-ix.  inches in width, and  the last car  shipped gave   net-urns   of- slightly .  over $200 to the ton..     The Skylark is an example of what can be  done by practical development in,  the high grade mines of Greenwood.  The mine lias paid its  way from  the start, and also met the payr  raents on the bond, with a surplus  for the promoters.  A syndicate is being formed   by-  Acting Mayor Butiug to take over  the E.  P.  U.  in  the high-grade  belt.    It is the intention to get 20  men to contribute $25 each   per .  month to develop tlje property, the  owners giving the syndicate, their .  own time to develop to-a. shipping  stage,  when the   purchase price,  $16,000 will be paid from the  out-  put of the mine.     The terms-are  easy and it is an excellent investment for persons-with a- few'dollars  to spare."~The syndicate, it" is1 believed will be" completed this week,  Thurday evening a party include  ing Dominion Copper Co. officials  arrived from the east, on a trip of  inspection of the mines and smelter  of the company. M.~ M. Johnson, consulting engineer for the  company, arrived , Tuesday and  met the following members of the  party: Warner Miller, of New  York, president of- the company;  A. M. Wickwire, director, member  of the law firm of Untermeycr &  Marshall, New York; S, W. Tray-,  ler, engineer and metallurgist,  Trayler Engineering Co,, New  York; H. H. Melville, lawyer of  Boston and D. E. Woodbridge,  mining engineer, of D^nluth.  Yesterday, manager T.R.Drum?  mou escorted the entire party over  the several properties of the coin?  pany in this camp, not excepting  the recent find of 2.3 per cent. cop<  per ore, in the Brooklyn mine. In  the afternoon they drove to Greenwood, aud thence to the company's,  smelter at Boundary Falls. They  will spend a few days in this section before retupjine east.

'   There is a vast amount of de-  .   r  ' ficicncy about tlie postoffice in Canada. It pays a dividend but at a  great sacrifice to utility. The service is full of cheap clerks who are  constantly making mistakes thereby causing loss and annoyance to  ���������the public. The stamp? are so rot-  fen that it is a wonder they are not  jarred to pieces with the motion of  tho trains. The slowness of the  service between Phoenicand Green-  wook is an insult to two of the best  towns in B. C, and a disgrace to  the public 'service. Such a condition of affairs would exist but a  f-hort time in the east, but here in  the west it seems anything is considered good enough for the people.  The Scandal Session  A summary of the unsavorj' matters exposed at the recent session  of the Dominion House gives the  following result:  The Saskatchewan Valley Land  deal.  The Atlantic Trading company  contract and the group of scandals  connected with it.  ThoBronson Railway concession  and ex-speaker Belcourt's connection with it.  The Gelinas exposure and the  consequent fraud.  The scandal of the ice-breaker.  "Montcalm's'' silver plate with  the overcharges and the refunds  consequent on exposure.  The thin red line election frauds.  The fake homestead scandals.  The scandals of the Arctic steamship expedition.  The scandals of the St. Joseph,  Disraeli and Grand Valley wharves.

But  tho sentiments,   even  the prejudices, of the public 'ought  to receive consideration in a matter of this kind.     And there remains the fact, which ought to  be  added to the sentiments and prejudices of the public, that the lepers  are frequently, if not always, quarantined in opposition to their own  desires.    Some of them have been  known   to   escape   from   Darc'ey  Island.    What guarantee is there  that they could be maintained in  security upon a "station at Albert  Head ?   Guards would necessarily  have to  be maintained,  and it is  doubtful whether the vigilance of  the most alert sentinels would prove  a guarantee against the possibility  of an occasional   patient   making  good his escape.    Then the Chinese  friends of the afflicted, being more  familiar  with   the horrors  of the  dreaded disease than their white  neighbors, would do their  best to  conceal the fugitives.     Taking all  aspects of the question into consideration, and making the fullest allowance   for   the   desire    of the  authorities to minister to the needs  and mitigate the horrors of the life  to which the lepers are condemned,  we think there ought to bo no insuperable obstacles in the way of  the department carrying out   its  programme without giving offence,  even on purely sentimental grounds  to the people of Victoria or of Albert Head.    If Darcy Island be not  a suitable place for a leper station,  there are snrely many other points  just as good as Albert Head, easily   reached by    the    quarantine  steamer, from which  there would  be little liklihood of the condemned  escaping and with no settlers harboring a natural repugnance to the  presence oi' such neighbors.    If the  department has made a decision,  let us hope it is nof irrevocable.���������  Victoria Times.  ball through the opening, and each  in turn, had a'kick or two, the  point being scored accordingly.

Our  Football in China  Football is a very ancient game.  It was played   in   China,   says   a  writer, ages before Julius Caesar  wrote his description  of his campaigns   in  Gaul,   and   ages    before     Romulous     and     Eemus  struggled for their wolf-provided,  morning's milk.      Who invented  football is a   question   in   'Europe  and America almost as difficult to  answer as who first suggested toast,  but in the far east such a matter is  treated with tho attention   it   deserves, and the origin and date" are  both pigeonholed, at hand for reference.    An emperor,   it   is   said  initiated the gamoiu the third millennium before Jerusalem fell prostrate at the foot of Koine,   and   it  soon became the sport, not simply  of kings, but of emperors and their  households.    Cheug-Ti who ruled  in 36-32 B. C, was so fond of the  game that bo declined to follow the  courtiers, who said it was exhaust-  Success is often covered by success; human nature is on the whole  generous, or at least, good tempered. It is willing to .forgive faults  which it can afford to forget, hut  failure does not with any certainty  entail condemnation, for again  mankind is generous, and nowhere  more po than in dealing with show  people. If you are successful you  are a big Biiccess, and the rapid  st.iides that Richards & Pringles  famous Georgia Minstrels have  made puts them in tlie front ranks  of the minstrel field. They have a  recognized standard as being in a  class of their own, different from  all others but yet a minstrel show.  Others with plenty of merit have  failed.

Graber talks iu this way about the  shaken ��������� city.  C. L. Graber is in 'receipt of a  letter froni his brother, now located a't Oakland, Cal., and in  speaking of the rebuilding of San-  Francisco says: '  Poor old San Francisco is,   I am  afraid, up against it,  and will  be  for a number   of  years   to   come.  Temporary    buildings   or' shacks  have been and are still going up  like mushrooms, but I can see that  the first flush of hurrah of what we  are going to do is beginning to be  met with'a realization of the actual  situation.    In the first place,  the  business is not there, so much of it  gone elsewhere permanently. Oakland received a great share of it,  and then, too, with a population of  at least 20Q,000 less, and with the  exorbitant    ground    rentals    demanded, 'business cannot continue  as it once did.   Owners of lots are  asking more for the vacant lots  just as they are,  all covered  with  debris, than they received for their  property with buildings that formally stood on them, and in addition  they have to clear it off and put up  a'building at your   own   expense.  The destruciibii wrought in San-  Francisco was something terrible,  and no one's mind can at bne.time  comprehend   tho   vastness  of   it.  The-more'I see of it the more I  realize that to bo a fact, and everything was so completely destroyed.  Someone was  saying  today   that  aside from occasional charred telegraph pole, not a charred piece of  wood can   be   found.     The few  buildings that you see iu  the pic-  turds that are   still  standing  are  completely gutted.    We are doing  some business right along,  hilt it  does not give any   of   us   nervous  prostration to care for it.  Dinners in Honor of Dogs  T. P. O'Connor tells a couple of  interesting stories of annual feasts  giv������n to uoble dogs in honor of  heroism. A Mr. Phillips while  bathing, ventured out too far and  was in imminent danger of drowning. The bystanders on tho beecn  prayed iortwo boatmen to put out  to his rescue, but they declined unless'they were paid for the service  a certain sum.  "While they were haggling .about  the price of a life, a Newfoundland  dog, of his own initiative, swam  swiftly to the drowning man's assistance and towed hirn ashore.  Mr. Phillips bought the dog from  its owner, a butcher, and instituted  an annual festival in its honor till  its death.  At this festival the dog was assigned the place of honor, and consumed his beefsteak with creditable decorum. After Morcland  had painted and Bartolozzl had  engraved the dog's portrait AJr.  Phillips had it worked into tho  tissues of all his table linen.  In the flourishing days of Asdey's  a Mr. Ryan was walking beside a  canal, accompanied by Hero, a  Newfoundland dog which took important parts at that playhouse  Suddenly they heard a uian  shouting that two children had  fallen into the canal and that both  had goh'o under. lie throw n stone  to indicate where they had sunk  and the dog plunged in.  The dog first brought one child  safely to shore, though tho boy's  coat collar, by Which the dog was  towing him, gave away and Hero  had to dive again for him. Then  he went back for the second child.  The father of the boys instituted  on annual banquet in the dog's  honor.  His wife, having experienced this  kind of experience upon many  other pay nights past and gone,  concluded to give her husband of  the devious gait habit an experience which would lead him to im-  prove his gait. Dame rumor add.s  zest to this unvarnished tail, by  relating that this much-troubled  woman arrayed hersj'lf'in black  tights trimmed in red rings, long  pointed elippers turned up at tho  toes, decorated her face after the  fashion of an Indian warrior let her  long black hair fall loosely down  over her bare shoulders, and as the  limber-jointed hubby staggered  into the room, she said in' a voice  fnll of srmko and sulphur: Come  in here, you brute. -I'm a she  devil.   .  Imagino her surprise when he  staggered up to her, reached out  his hand and stammered: Ish-zat-  so? Shake ol' girl. I'm your  brother-in-law; my wif-shur sister.  Self-Coraplacence  I'd bo a country editor and chase  around for news, before I'd be a  millionaire with wealth I could not  use; I'd rather be a printer with  patches on my breeches, than be a  master of finance with all ".my  thoughts on riches. I'd rather eat  my modest meals, digest the same  with ease, than sit down to a royal  feast with a stomach like John D's.  To romp and froiic with my kid  around our cheerful hearth, with  its mother for the audience to help  enjoy tho mirth, is better than to  move about in high society, where  dress and jewels, false display make  life a mockery. 'Tis true the  printer's cash gets short and duns  come in a hurry, but .the happy  fellow does not fret; he lets the  "dunnce" worry. He always has  a conscience clear and a disposition  sunny; he knows thatlifehasother  joys' besides the chase for money.  Lo the moulder of opinion is a  happier man by far than the man  who owns a palace, a 3'acht aud a  private car. And when he goes to  his reward he .knows that all is  well, Avhile the-man who makes his  wealth his god may some day walk  in .  A Cure that Didn't Wotk  lb is rumored that a certain married man who had iu vested too  much of his monthly pay in Seagram last Saturday night, mid "in  couaequonce winded his way to  his homo rather deviously, met  with   ati unexpected   experience.  Origins  You must not think that turkeys first came from Turkey, for  they are natives'of America. Aud  the Turkish batli orginated in  Russia. Nor must you think camel's hair brushes are made from  the hair of tho humpbacked quadruped. They are mostly of the  bushy hair from squirrels' tails.  German silver is not even silver at  all, but it was invented in-China  oenturies ago, and it is an alloy of  some of the inferior metals. Porpoise hide is not made from porpoises at all. People get it from  the white whale. Jerusalem artichokes are not natives of Jerusalem, but are kind of a sunflower.  The French call them "girasole"  (flower turned to tho sun) and  girasole became corrupted into  Jerusalem. Cork legs are not  made of cork and they didn't come  from Cork, the willow tree usually  furnishes material for them. Cleopatra's needle, that wonderful obelisk of Egypt, was made 1,000  years before Cleopatra was born,  and really has nothing to do with  her. Irish stew is an English dish  and turtle soup hardly ever has  any real turtle in it. Prussian  blue, the beautiful color, is not a  special oroductof Prussia; but of  England.  Samuel Bleiwass sued A.Finkle-  stein at the Division Court hero  last Friday for a ^bathtub which  Bleiwasa purchased in Toronto and  was placed in Finklestein's house,  the owner not having ppare roohi  in his own house. Finklestein and  Bleiwass.are both Jowp. ' Finklestein was renting tho tub fo Jewish woineti, it being part of the  Jewish religion, so Finklestein  swore that women . should, .take, a  bath  every month whether they  needed it or not. There is no regulation about men bathing thcugb;  wo suppose the Rabbi would not  object to their going in swimming  like white folk. The dispu'tearose  so'Bleiwass swore, at the ;time  Finklestein charged him 5 cents for  a-pail of water. Judge. Klein  ruled that as this is a christian  country, Jew pricos should not be  allowed for baths, and as Mrs.  Bleiwass had laken five bath-i the  Judge allowed Finkhsteiu -7oc.  The dependent is to pay all costs.  Finklestein is now wondering who  won the case. "We will -tell himj  for the price he charges for a bath,  but we will not take our pay in  swimming in Finklestein's bath.-���������  Chesley Enterprise.

'"Parks, in his lecture on the Cobalt  mining region, before a large  audience at the   Universtty   building  'last night.     Illustrating  his   remarks by views showing  the  pro-  'gress of an imaginary  prospector,  ;he spoke of other portions of territory in Northern Ontario.    In this  'connection he asserted that the geological condition in the Townships  'of Ingram and Pense, north of  Cobalt,-seemed to indicate the   pres-  Vuce of silver.    A similar state of  rof affairs   was   noticeable  to   the  'south-west of the great camp. During this portion of the address Dr.  parks made .a striking allusion to  ihe famous Gillies limit,iwhich the  'Government is   preparing to  develop.    He   said:���������"It   is   queer  *that- right actoss the lake from the  richest mines no silver has been  'located.    Jn the great timber limit,  'too, about which so much has been  'said'and written, up to a week ago  'nothing has been discovered by the  Government officers." Prof.Miller,  the Provincial Geologist, it may be  lifted is, at present, in the North  engaged in making a profile map  of the Gillies berth.  Dr. Parks commenced his lecture  by describing the Cobalt region at  the time of the first silver discoveries. At the end of 1904 there  were five mines and the rush had  just begun. By the close of 1905,  a, town had arisen on the shores of  Long Lake. At present the  speaker said, there were 100 mines,  22 of which were shipping ore.  Before the year was over he prophesied that fifty would be despatching their output to the smelters.  The various types of prospectors  elicited from the lecture a humorous  comment. One kind of miner  entered the field arrayed in long  boots and khaki clothes and carried a revolver and bowie. Such  men prospected chiefly around  hotels in the towns.. The members  of another species went out into  the bush, established a camp, and  after a period of time spent in idleness, departed cursing the country.  A third class, the real prospector,  worked strenuously, seeking the  level strata of conglomerate rocks  forming the lower Iluronian series,  the erupted diabase and the Cobalt  bloom, whose delicate pinkish hue  indicated the precious metal concealed beneath the surface.���������Mail  and Empire.  All railroads entering Spokane  announce that the rates for-the  Spokane Interstate fair, which  opens Monday, September 24, will  be good going to'Spokane on Sunday the-day before, and on every  day until the middle of tho second  week of the fair. The railroads  have given a one and one third rate  good from all parts of the Spokane  territory. On the Great Northern  these rates are good between Leavenworth and Troy, on the S. F. &  N., and its branches and .connections, and on the Ferine branch.  On the Northern Pacific they are  good between North Yakima,  Walla Walla and Missoula, and on  all its branches entering Spokane,  and on the O. K.. & N. they arc  good into the Coenr d'Alenes and  as far as Walla Walla.  Robt. H. Cosgrove, secretary and  treasurer of the Spokaue Interstate  fair, which opens September 24,  has returned from Winnipeg where  he attended the great Canadian.an-  nual fair., He says the attendance  at all tho early fairs is greater than  ever before aud all the exhibitors  and men who take concessions predict a record-breaking attendance  at Spokane this year.

Because, said Bacon, I sec that Stone  would speak, and I didn't know-  but you might also, and see if, between the two, you couldn't strike  a spark.  I nearly fainted during the ceremony, said the bride.  Really ! Why so?  Well, you know, when the min-*'  ister asked if anyone  knew   any  reason why the couple should not  marry ?  Yes.  Well, in the intense hush that  followed, Mr. Lor.gwed leaned over  to Jack Davis and I heard him  whisper:     I do,   thousands   and  comes to visit him, he invites the  visitor help him open with prayer.
