The prospector has the honor to;  belong to an occupation, which ha  done' much for the welfare and  prosperity of the world���������an occupation which is dignified by the  persistent effort and honest toil of  many centuries and enobled by the  "endurance aud self sacrifice of  many forgotten' heroes. Although  history has left no record,of-his  doings, he must have searched the  wat-te places 'of the eai Ih ro fiiul  (l)0*precion3 neti nsflfnl minerals  long : before Phoenicians visited  Cornwall for tin, or "Hiram sent  in the navy-his servants, shipmen  that had knowledge of the sea," or  Ophir for gold; or King Snefru.  Pharoah of Egypt conquered the  Sinai peninsula''-for-its stoies of  copper. His adventures, privations, failures aud succef-ses must  have preceeded-and made possible  the advent of the Bronze Age of  prehistoric man, when the crude  implements and* weapons, of -stone  were-e*ist tfside'for ".those of_ better  -tiiateri;"^and'When progress-made  one of its early* epoch-making advances*, toward the fulness of its  promised inheritance. Since then  he has faithfully examined many a  roc'krihbed hill for the natural  treasures of the earth, but the  difficulty and importance of his  work have never beeu fu-ly appreciated or adequately recognized" by  his fellow man. Most of his efforts  are "born to blush unseen and  waste their sweetness on the desert  air," and even when a rich find  does crown his search with success  his remuneration is bub a meagre  pittance of the vast wealth he has  discovered.  No class of men lead a more  strenuous and adventurous -life  than these brave knights of the  mountain aud the stream. When  the ordinary man passes through a  dangerous spectacular experience  he delights to tell 'the thrilling  story to his friends. He looks  upon himself as a sort or hero.  He would not repeat the adventure for the world, neither would  he have missed it for the world  and the f-tars. But with the prospector these things are but the  commonplaces of life.  Sometimes we hear persons, who  sit snugly ancl lazily among the  comforts and luxuries of> Jiff, wonder why men will elect to waste  their! short lives in wandering  alone, over tho solitary places of  the earth, far away from the blessings and benefits of civilization.  But the "wonder" is short sighted  and narrow vibioned. These men  do not waste their lives. Even if  their arduous efforts seem to return  them void, even if they fall^by the  wayside and their white bleached  hones, uncoflined and unknown,  mark the place where they fell,  they have not lived in vain, for  they have struggled bravely nnd  manfully to discoveT the treasures  of God, which Ii'' has stored in  in the bosom of the earth for His  ��������� ���������hildi-eri  The Schools open upon Aug. 29.

The largest and most disastrous  Ure that has ever visited  Phoenix  started  last Friday afternoon   in  No.   3  oil  house at' thc   Granby  mine:   Fanned by the draught the  flames rushed, along the covered  approach between tho mouth of the  tunnel and No. 3 crusher building  and in three minutes  the  whole  thing was ablaze.    Tho sparks soon  began falling on the lower streets  and  fire sprang  up   from several  buildings   almost   simultaneously  ,aiid the very existence of the upper  was ihrealr-nfcd.    Soon the machine  shop, blacksmith shop, Supt. O. B.  Smith's house,   Hodge's   cottage,  the   Methodist   and   Presbyterian  churches,   School    house,   Palace  livery stable,   Pioneer  office   and  a pile of. 25Q cords of   wood belonging to Mr. McElroy were a sea  of fire and the heab was intense.  That that part of Phoenix  known  as the upper town was not completely destroyed was due to  the  splendid work of the  fire department aided  by the Granby   employees.    So bad did ib look  that  people begau removing the furniture and other belongings into the  street and   places of safety.    The  officials at the C.P.R.   depnt held  a train back in readiness <o convey  the people out of the city, bub fortunately this was not required. By  8 o'clock the fire was under control.  'I'here were no casualties, and only  one person hurt bhough many of the  fire fighters  were thoroughly ex-,  hausted.     All buildings destroyed  carry  insurance,   bub in  spite  of  this there will be heavy losses.

A preacher came at a newspaper  man in this way: You editors do  not tell the truth. If you did you  could nob live; your newspapers  would be a failure. The editor replied: You are right and the minister who will at all times and  under all circumstances tell the  whole truth about his members,  alive or dead, will not occupy hiB  pulpit more than one Sunday, and  then he will find it necessary to  leave town in a hurry. The press  and bhe pulpib go hand iu hand*  with whitewash brushes and pleasant words, magnifying little virtues into big ones. The pulpit,  the pen and the gravestone are tlie  great saint-making triumvirate.*  And the minister went away look- '  ing very thoughtful while tho editor turned to his work, and told  of the unsurpassing beauty of the  bride, while in fact she was aa  homely as a mud fence.

It is discouraging.     We make mistakes,  bud  don't let us stop to look at them  till we lose courage.    Don't let us  see all the   annoying   things   on  either hand or worry about those  behind us.    If we get out of the  right course, let us fix our eyes on  bhe guidingsbar and try to get back  agaiu, but don't stop to lament, for  it takes from us the strength, the  hope, tho brightness that we need*  Dou't brood over tho  past,'Wot  dream,over the future; biit grip  the instant and get your lefison for*  tho hour.

He was also subsequently elected an

He was deeply interested in the agitation   for   the   rej>eal   of   the   Corn

life," when he was appointed regius
professor of modern history at Oxford,
which position he held until 1868, and
filled in such a way us to attract the
admiration of all authorities. Among
his students wa's the late King Edward VII., then. Prince of Wales, of
whose attendance at the lectures it
has been written: "He (the prince)
took a seat at one end of the room,
with his tutor and equerry* on either
hand; and at the other end, nparest
the fire, sat the professor. On the
6ide of the windows was gathered a
small and specially selected group of
four or five Christ Church undergraduates, who had been invited to
make an audience and afford the
prince a sense of companionship. All
took notes as the lectures went on;
and tlroy were well deserving of the
compliment. The text-book was tlio
'Annals of England,' and the professor began with the earliest sections;
and he would sit with one leg folded
over the other, and talk delightfully,
���in his brilliant epigrammatic style,
about various subjects which were
suggested as page after page was turned."
In 1863, while the great civil war
was raging in the United States, he
was a fearles6-*charnpion of the Union
cause, and wrote two powerful
pamphlets in furtherance of it, "Does
the Bible Sanction Slavery?" and "On
tlie Morality of the Emancipation Proclamation." These, of course, were
widely read in the north, and when
their author visited America in the
following year on a lecturing tour he
was received with great enthusiasm.
He visited the federal army in camp
and field, and met President Lincoln

feeling of the countiy was sound. But '
his main  principle was stated  when
he wrote ("Canada and the Canadian
Question," page 261)   "A grand  idea

The  idea  of  a   United   Continent  of
North   America    securing ��� free   trade
and intercourse over a vast area with

no less practical than grand."   Never

become   more   impracticable   in   the
course of years.    It is not necessary
to   use   the   language   of   controversy
about- it now.    But, in mitigation of
his unpopularity on this question, it
may be pointed out that his idea was
by no means held alone.   It was the
idea of nearly all the official men of

It  was "the idea" of Bright ��� who
compared annexation to "being taken

It happened that Andrew D. White,
first president of Cornell  University,'
was on a visit to England in 1868, and
while   there   had   an -interview   with
Mr.  Smith,   who,   having  no  special
employment, gladly accepted the invi-
.    tation of Mr. White to help him in the
foundation    of    Cornell    University,
which'.was established for the special
benefit  of  poor   students   at  Ithaca,
N.Y.   The university opened on Oct!
7, 1868, with a student roll of 412.  Mr.
.    Smith's department was English and
constitutional   history.     He   was   a
member of the faculty to the end of
his  life.    The   new   university  being
poorly supplied with books, Dr. Smith
quietly sent home to England for his
collection of 10,000 volumes, whioJi he
presented on their arrival to Cornell.
After three years at Ithaca, the university  having been  established,  he
came  to Toronto,   where  there  were
three families   of   his   relatives,   and
where he could  be near Cornell, in
which he held a non-resident professorship.    He bought a house in the
Brockton district from  the father of
Police Magistrate Denison, and lived
there while he remained single.    He
did not intend to remain * always *in
Toronto, but   he   changed   his  mind

Col. Belcher, of Southampton. The
colonel was in Toronto some time ago
on his way home from a Grand Lodge
meeting in Orangeville. With him
was Capt. Billy Thompson, of Mitchell, another Orange celebrity and a
great joker. The colonel at that time
was Mayor of Southampton. He is a ,
great booster of liis home town and j
frequently refers to it as the Chicago
of Canada. Capt. Thompson invited
the colonel and another friend to have
lunch with him at the King Edward.
In the rotunda before lunch, happening to meet the steward of the hotel,
Thompson introduced the colonel to
him as the Mayor of Chicago, telling
him they were going to have lunch
and wanted to be well looked after.
The steward, by the way, is a Chicago man. When they went to the
cafe they found a table reserved for
them, with a special waiter, and was
told it was not necessary to consult
the menu as the stewards had arranged the courses.- The lunch was a decided success, the guests enjoying it
immensely, as did Capt. 'ilioinpson

Indigestion is a condition in which
the stomach is more or less unable to
digest the food. Even a light case of
indigestion means much niiserv, but
when the trouble is at its worst the
life of the sufferer is one of constant
and acute misery. Indigestion is recognized by a burning sensation in
me stomacn, bioating, an oppressive
feeling of weight, belching wind, pains
111 the region of the heart, often vomiting and nausea, and a dread of food
for the misery it causes. Dieting and
the use of pre-digested foods mav
give softie relief, but will never cure
indigestion. The work of indigestion

ARTISTIC  JAPAN.  A.DELICATE HINT.  The Present Girard Sent to One of HU  .Ship Captains.  One of the sea captains In the employ of Stephen Girard, the founder ot  Girard college, had a rural Yankee's  fondness for whittling with his Jack-  knife aud on one trip succeeded in getting away with a large part of the  rail, although, feeliug that be was not  without the artlsfJc-^seuse, he really  regarded the rail-as greatly improved  In appearance. When the vessel came  to Philadelphia, Girard went aboard,,  made a general inspection in the captain's absence and as he was about to  return to shore.asked one of the seamen who bad been cutting .the rail.  Tbe seaman told him the captain and  then, afraid bis telling might have unpleasant consequences .were the captain to learn of it in a roundabout way,  lnformed-that official of the interview  with Girard. The captain was In terror of a reprimand, but, hearing nothing from bis employer, supposed tho  incident closed. As he was about  welghiDg anchor ready to leave port  a dray^ loaded with shingles drove  down to tbe wharf, and the driver  bailed the vessel.  ."There must be some mistake!"  shouted the captain. "Our bill of lading doesn't mention shingles." '  "This-Is where they belong," sung  back the driver. "Mr. Girard himself  told me to deliver them. He said they  are for the captain .to whittle."  Rules of Harmony Prevail In Even th*  , Humblest  Homes.  ��������� By far the greatest charm of Japan  and her people lies uot only in the  fact that the artists know the secret  of the most wouderful carvings, castings, wood and metal work, silken  brocades and tapestries, exquisite cloisonnes and porcelains, things for the  fortunate few, but also in the further  . and more important 'fact that the  daily life of the'poor is surrounded,  permeated, interfused by taste and refinement Even the workmen iu their  gardens and homes are daily using  tasteful domestic implements which  are the outgro.wth ,of the thought and  meeds of the people."  The designs and proportions of the  humblest, bouses, exteriors and Interiors,-are settled for all time by certain rules of harmony; the dress of the  peasant is not,left to possible hideous  Individual caprice, but follows established canons of color, cut'aud usage;  the garden, however small, the fence  or paling that walls It In, the roof  over the well, over the gate, tbe great  lantern that hangs by the door, the  bucket in which water Is fetched and  the bamboo dipper from which it is  poured, the bronze brazier for coals,  the tea service���������all these and a thou  sand more details of daily life are arranged according to a pattern which  tray be very old, but which, as a re  suit, adds Immeasurably to the satis-  faction of life.  And yet Japanese craftsmen, while  holding hard by tradition, have not  failed to add to their work the subtle  touch of personality.

"But your client sold the land, was  paid for It aud signed tbe deed, did be  not?" asked the judge.  "That makes no difference," said  Chipman. "The deed has no seal and  cannot be admitted in evidence."   .  "Is there anything else the matter  with the deed?" asked the Judge.  -   "I don't know that there is."  "Mr. Clerk," said the Judge, "give  me a wafer and a three cornered piece  of paper."  The clerk obeyed, and tbe judge deliberately made and affixed the seal.  "There, Brother Chipman," said he,  "the deed is all right now. It may be  put in evideuce. A man Is uot going  to be cheated out of his farm in this  court when there is a whole box of  wafers ou tbe clerk's-desk."  "The court will give me an exception?" pleaded the counsel.

They had the fresh, silvery look of  the newly hatched fly and the fly Instinct which moved them to start on  their travels at the'earliest possible  moment and thus keep the species  from dying out In any given locality. -  We both watched those 'flies carefully. Eight left the car when we  reached the outskirts of Newark,  three miles away. About half a'mile  farther on seveu more got off. Others  left at Intervals. until nearly all of  those left got out with' the majority  of the passengers in front of a church  Four remained on the dress until the  wearer left tbe car at tbe end of the  route, five miles from tbe point from  which they had started, and I suppose  they went home to diuner with her.

Several  Albany flies were fellow passengers.  1 observed two of them resting on the  shoulder of the woman who sat opposite me at table. Evidently It was  not yet their breakfast time, for they  kept their places all through tbe meal.  Those flies didn't shift their positions materially until we reached Saratoga. There, as the train stopped, they  were visited -by a local delegation, as  it seemed to me, the members of which  apparently conversed with them In fly  language, if that is what the rubbing  together of their probosces means.  Perhaps" they were a reception committee recommending the Saratoga hotels, but If so they were disappointed,  for the Albanians shook tbem off as If  assuring .them thai they were satisfied  with their accommodations.  Other flies drifted in'and tried to interest their traveling brethren as we  stopped at various stations, but with  ' no more success, for when the train  reached Bluff Point, which happened  .to be the destination of my unknown  fellow- passenger a3 well as myself,  the faithful two were still with her.  So they were when she registered at  the hotel desk, aud for all I know they  lived happily with her ever after. Certainly their attachment up to that  point was striking enough. It had  lasted for a Journey of 105 miles, and  if they had any disease germs about  them they succeeded In delivering  them with more expedition than if  they had sent them by express.���������Edward Hatch, Jr., in Suburban Life.

Here Is a sample of one of the tests  given to the men who took the examination to be census enumerators. The  test is not exactly as it appears on the  question sheets, but is given from tbe  memory of one of the men who took  the examination:  Sarah Green-and Jim Brown were  married In Loudon. They lived there  four years. One child was born to  them. Then they emigrated to the United States. A child was born to them  on the ocean. They lived in New York  for nine years, during which time  three more children were born. Then  they moved to Ohio, and another child  was born. Then Sarah and Jim disagreed and were divorced, and Sarah  married another man, and a child was  born to the new union. Jim meantime  was naturalized.  The problem was to place the various facts on the enumeration blank as  they should appear when the census is  taken.���������Columbus Dispute h.

After spoiling a $20 hill hy purchases of cigars and "apolliuaris"  in a local hotel, the men who were  treated naturally began to wonder  who the sport was who could set  such a pace and keep it.

Mention, of Ryan's name as a  spender^caused the stranger to drop  his glass and almost choke.  "Tommy's got every dollar he  ever earned, except when he was  obliged to pay a doctor in advance  for treating him for tonsilitis,"  said the stranger.

"You sleep a lot, don't you ?"  "Sure, but I don't get touched."  "How's that?"  How   frequently   we   hear   the  various men and  women of this  place -speak in   very   undignified  tones of Greenwood.    This is the  case in every town more or less,  but I must say   Greenwood   has  more than her share of knocker.-'.  All I can say against  the  town   is  'that there is a lack of public, spirit  and push among its business men.  We must learn that if we would  have a'town���������one in which people  would like to make their home���������  we must speak kindly of our home  town and we must have an interest  in the welfare of our neighbors, the  upbuilding of agriculture  and  the  beautifying of the city.    Make the  city  look  thrifty.    Have  for  the  management men of advancement  aud   progressive   abilities.     The  merchants should buy of the farmer  such products as aro  raised  upon'  the farm and ship in nothing that  can  be bought at home.-     Keep  your money at home;  this is the  way   to   build   up   the   country.  Visit other towns at their-social  affairs and they will  visit  Greenwood  in  times  of entertainment.  Don't'be   so   stiff   and   cold    to  strangers   who   visit   us,   btit   be  sociable and extend the glad hand  of welcome.     Why there are  business and professional men in Greenwood who will not even  give., you  the 'good morning' greeting unless  you force a recognition.    We also  have in the pay of our county and  city, men in public ofl'ict- as well as  others who live off the taxes of the  business men and tax payers, who  send to the cheap goods mail order  houses for all their goods, of  even  description.    Such men should not  he fed by the people.   They should  be weeded out.    The men who will  not patronize the people who give  them these fat crumbs should  not  long remain in (he pay of the public.    The  mail  order business Hs  the curse of Greenwood, in  consequence of this merchants can not  sell their goods as cheaply as they  would had they the profit on these  goods, which is paid to the railroad  company  and   the  house of Eaton  & Co.    Those goods are  not such  as  a  village  merchant could sell  with a clear  conscience,    as  they  arc  very  inferior stuff, and after  m_^3msm������mmm������^mm!&wiw2^2a2&^^^Bm3m&&  ".

You pay  your mail  order merchant before  you see or fit the goods, and your  home   merchant   after  you   have  seen and fitted them, and too often  after they have been worn out.    It  is a very common thing for women  with a sad face, to come into my  store, and want me to take wearing  apparel,   that they have obtained  Irotn Eaton's, and exchange good  goods for them.    This I could not  do as I could not sell them.    Now,  the merchants here have, a  hard  enough time, and are selling just  as cheaply  as possible, none  arc  making any money���������just living in  hopes���������but each is afraid to cirry  the stock  he othprwisc would  if  people did  not send away-for so  many good.".
