In writing: this  article it   is   the intention' of the  writer to hew close to the line, let  the; chips fall when they may, and  make no statement that I cannot  prove if called upon to do so, and  trusting'that  it will be necessary  for.- me   to-have'to make these  charges good for the.'simple reason  that ,tlfere are always certain people  in    a     community   '-you-- have-  to    show    before .- tliey   are convinced.     In  this  case ��������� as- far  as  the people   of-  Midway   are concerned,    I   think    that there  are  only   one or two at the most that  have  not already seen   for themselves.      Midway   is supposed' to  have' two   police officers and  of  course a police office-,-being situated  ��������� close  to tho  Boundary line of a  country that boasts of her freedom,  and   such   being the case one of  these free and easy towns-sprang  Darraugh should object to night  duty.,' Tt looks as if ho has  changed his way of living because  when gambling was allowed in this  place it was quite a- common thing  to see the would be chief trying to  beat the game, and as a "matter of  fact he had to work nearly all  night, some times iii order to get  Ids shift in of course. I suppose  that was one way he had of doing  his duty, then it-was quiteriatiiral  that he should object to the closing  of the  games.    It was about this  *  time that the manager of the Bank  had an occasion to call up the police  one evening about ten o'clock-because a man somewhat the worse  of Jiquor was sitting on his platform singing or talking to himself.  The consequence -was that he  thought someone' was trying-, to  hold him or the bank up. He  phoned to the police office but could  get no one there, so they called  up the'sevnral hotels and-finally located' Mr. Darraugh and'told him  what he wanted; but- he was too  busy -to investigate this case, or  being so wise that he did not think  it was necessary to  look into the  up with a very large percentage of matter.    It afterwards proved to  be a false alarm,.-but'we must take  into consideration the hotel was  possibly a couple-hundred feet.from  tho bank.' Thorn is a bridge across  Kettle river at this point which is  not in a very safe condition at the  present time but- very covenient to  a great many people living in "this  part of the country.- Thcre-is a  sign placed on-'the bridge reading  thus:     '��������� Walk- /your- horses.-''    A  Fresh ground coffee, specially  selected . Mocha ami Java. Delicious and invigorating. The  Huntor-Kendiiek Co,  the    residents ' being    gamblers,  rounders and  dauce hall inmates.  For a time these people prospered  financially   and  everything  went  well,   but it'bpg.'in-to kit"! harder to  get money and i.fc i.-> a well known  fact that those people have to' live  and if tliey.cannot obtain'tho-necessary  wherewith by playing their  games, the'next-thing that tliey resort to is to holding someone up or  plundering and robbing,-and-'as a  matter of fact, those people are not'  going to  take an}' chances in the  place-where'they, are protected,-but  come to Midway in the day time,  locate their game, and in the wee  small  hours of morning, when the  supposed guardians of the piece are  slumbering or having a good time,  the sluthes ply their vocation and  some good citizen wakes up in the  morning and finds that a life time's  savings have disappeared.     Now  this is' what the residents of Midway think very strange, is to have  two "policeman,  or supposed to b*o  filling that position, and having no  protection   at night.     We think  that we are quite capable of taking  care of ourselves during the day,  and while there are two policemen,  they, knowing the circumstances as  well   as  we do, it is only natural  that- wo should expect some protection at night.    Officer Thbmett  is   seen   quite  frequently around  town in the early part of the evening,   but I cannot say that for the  self pei-sumed chief, Mr. Darraugh.  I: have   noticed   him  a few times  coming   down   to   the office for a  newspaper then  going back to his  den.   I* have heard Officer Thonjett  state that he was willing to go on  duty at   12 and off at 12 and was  willing to take this shift two'weeks  on   and   two   weeks off, but from  what I can  learn, the chief objects  to doing night duty. ��������� This subject  was  brought up   one   evening by  some of the residents in a conversation   with   the officers and the}'  openly declared that there was not  enough money in it for night work.  There is nothing for them to do in  the day time-.except to walk around  and, look   wise.    A person would  naturally suppose that if thero was  not money 'enough in it that, they  would    resign and giv.o someone  elso  a  chance to look after the  peoples' interests and dotheii duty  and not   take the peoples' money  for nothing.     There is one thing  certain   that if wo  had nopoliee  hero  we  would have a watchman  for tho  night if we had to pay'his  salary   ourselves,   and  I think it  would bo much better than having  two policemen (hat are continually  quarreling.    I cannot seo why Mr,  and the other before Stependiary  Magistrate McMynn. "   It appears'  that one Harris; the walking delegate  for- tho  Apothecary's Union  has been   making   a   tou'- ,of the  province,   in- the endeavor to'bave  those engaged in  the business take  out regular working cards, entitling, tliem to poison people "within  the meaning of the act," whatever  that may be.    Harris'method'-are  much- the' same  as   those of'the  eastern    whiskey detective.'',    ne  enters the drug store accompanied  by a witness, and has a prescription  filled.    Then he goes-to a justice of  the  peace and demands that the  person  filling tho prescription'"be  and appear" before the said'justice  for not  earring a regular working  card with the  union seal attached.  The justice sends for the non-union  dispenser,    who  appears   with   a  member of theLaw3Ters' union to  see fair   play.   The walking delegate  also engages a member of-the  Lawyers' union.     The justice, not  being a  union man, acts as a sort  of arbitrator.    They  talk matters  over, the most of which is done by  the Lawyers' union.   In both cases  in this'district the. justices decided  that the apothecaries did not work  at the trade while not in possession  of a properly signed working card.  Tn the Phoenix cusp, J. R.Brown  Vl. P. P., prosecuted, and A. M.  Whiteside defended. In the Midway case, A. M. Whiteside prosecuted and J. P. McLcod defended'.

Mr.  Darraugh was standing about 200  feet from the bridge and I think  looking- at the performance. I  don't think he even wired to Nelson- for instructions'because if lie  did he must have got word not to  make the arrest as the man was  not molested: It is a nice quiet  town where bad men can blow up  two safes in the one evening and  burn up four buildings and get  away. As a matter of fart it wa������  easy. Our- wise policeman takes a  trip to Grand Forks next morning  looking for his man. I suppose  there is no doubt but they were  ���������watching him get on tho train and  remarking how easy.- A little incident occurred only a few days  ago at the C P. R. station. A  somewhat suspicious looking character was hanging arotiud- the station. He tried to steal a ride out  on tho castbound passenger but  was caught at it by the trainmen  and had to walk out. In the  meantime Agent Stevenson phoned  to Mr. Darraugh that a man of this  description. was   hangm  sociation cannot be commended.

Other promising properties on  which- development work is being  rushed will also have reached the  shipping stage. ..   .  ��������� The "McKinley -is   in shape to  justify the  installation  of- a large  compressor   plant.

A ,'217-foot  tunnel    running   southeast   from  McKinley gulch partially crosscuts  the ore body.    When the last shift  ceased drilling the face of the'working was in ore.    This rich-mineralized chalcopyrite ore zone, in the  opinion   of   the   majority, of  the*  prominent  experts  who  have  inspected"  the   property, extends to  and  possibly   underneath the porphyry  formation  500 feet further  up the li^ll. - - This supposed-contact   following the same general  trend    as  the   ore,  also caps' the  summit"'and  can  traced down the  opposite slope.

A Li, ABOUT 130 B  In Nelson tire evening luminary  of     solidified    literary     thought  soundly belabors tho morning purveyor of linotyped press despatches  because  it   called' the Hon. R. F.  Green,   "Bob."    This may or not  be a   serious    matter.    If he was  called  P>ob   with   malice   in   the  thought it is real serious; but if the  deed was merely done iu that spirit  1-y which a grateful people speak  of their idols then the seriousness  of the   affair   fades away like adversity   in   a copper camp.    The  higher a man ascends iu the public  eve the greater his chance for being  called by his front or nickname.  If   Green   was just a natty little  bank clerk or something similar we  might all call him Mr. Green, but  peeing that he is a cabinet minister  (not parson) iu the greatest jewel  of the tiara of provincial diamonds  that  close the gap iu Canada between the two seas, we call him Bob  because   it   seems more homelike,  more indigenous te the free air of  the grand old mountains, than to  set him up on a pedestal, like a  frosted  duke ot a country dance,  and    while   we salaam  in  mock  gravity freeze the tendrils in his  heart by calling him the Honorable  Robert Francis Green, K. I.  The world has always called its  great men by their front or nickname. Abe Lincoln, Jim Hill,  Joe Chamberlain, Little Bobs,  Bony, Bob Ingersoll, Wild Bill,  Old Three 'Stars Grant, Bobby  Burns, and scores of other grand  souls have alway been addressed as  above by press and public. Who  ever heard of such eminent personages as Socrates, Aristotle, Demosthenes, Buddha, Pericles, etc., being called Mister? Surely no  greater honor can be conferred  upon a public man than to brush  away all the false dignity some tuft  hunters would pile around his position, reach for his hand in a  hearty manner, and call him almost anything that you would a  partner in ths hills.  Skidoo! you chaps who would  deny us the supreme pleasure of  calling any great man by his front  name.  But then, of course, if the literary early riser in Nelson had any  malice when it dubbed Kaslo's  greatest son by the name of Bob  the plot thickens and serious shadows fall across the entire circumstances.  ��������� Too many people hate the sinner, and not the sin.  Thkrk is good in everything.  Protein has been discovered in Chicago canned meats.  Tub world would be better if the  people took more time for rest,  reading and recreation.  Tin: man who carries a pot of  green paint is almost sure to get  some of it on his clothes.  All work that is not a pleasure  and which we do not attack with  enthusiasm is injurious to soul and  body. The heart must be in accord with hand and brain or you  will soon become like a clod of  mud hanging to a telegraph wire.  several months in advance.  Every onward move in the world  of invention seems to increase the  use of copper. The spread of electricity is largely responsible for the  prosperity of copper camps. The  substitution of electricity for steam  power in so many places will cause  copper to rule high for many a  long day.  FIELDING'S PLEA OF  INNOCENCE  And  comes  lunches  now the horrible truth  out that even the free  in Chicago are made from  rotten meat. With ptomaine in  the lunch and glucose in the beer,  the days of. the great American  hobo are fast drawing to a sad  farewell.  Lowkby's Claim has been  jumped, and cannot get a crown  grant. The authorities considered  that the pioneer prospector in  charge of it was using too explosive  a powder and became alarmed for  fear that he would blow a hole  through the universe. Perhaps  having noticed the trouble at  Vesuvius, 'Frisco and Valparaiso  they concluded that a sacrifice  would have to be made before the  entire earth disappeared and left  nothing for even a political grafter  to stand on.  Thk newspapers in Alberta- that  are. calling for postal reform and  denouncing the authorities at Ottawa better be warned iu time and  leave those in authority alone.  The people must be satisfied with  any service the powers hand out to  us, or else by kicking too much we  may lose our postoffices entirely.  So even if it does take two days to  bring a letter five miles do not  curse the postmaster-general. He  may be worried to death trying to  make a dividend, or watching that  no advanced literature gets into his  mail sacks.  THE MARBLE HEART  Wealth turns some hearts to  marble as evidenced by the follow-  item from Sault- Ste. Marie:  "Edger   Brown,   of this place,  . who died   in   the   hospital at tin-  Michigan Soo, was once a millionaire,    but was 'trimmed' by the  Bteel crowd, and died penniless.  "Brown    located   the   famous  MeFiiba and Vermillion ranges and  developed  them   until   they were  worth $13,000,000.     He   became  entangled   -financially   and   was  frozen out by John D. Rockefeller.  In the last hours, local physicians  learned  the i-tory  and notified a  millionaire  member of the  steel  giqup whom Brown once nuised  through    almost   a   fatal   illness  years ago.   The millionaire wrote  back that he bad made large investments, and was sorry he could  not  help  his  old friend,    Local  friends contributed enough for the  funeral expenses,"  Every now and then  we read  about   some chap crossing the divide from  eating canned meat that  is full of ptomaine toadstools or  some   other   inharmonious   substance.     There is no necessity for  anything of this kind if all food is  eaten    very slowly and  sense of  taste developed.    The sense of taste  will not permit us to eat anything  injurious   to   our  systems.     We  should   never   make an effort to  swallow either food or drink.    Everything should be chewed or held  in the month until it involuntarily  slips into our stomachs like the  rain   sliding   down a duck's back.  Every   individual who dies  from  poisoned food is a gulper and bolts  his food like a chicken eating corn.  The sense of taste has no chance  to sound a warning when food is  pitched in as you load a locomotive  with coal.    The same rule applies  to iluids.   No one will become a  drunkard who sips his booze and  relies  upon  his senBe of taste to  tell him when the quantity is reaching the poison  limit.     The toper  always    fills   his tank as if his  stomach was on fire, and he wanted  to put the flames out after the manner of a bucket brigade at a conflagration in a country village.    In  (his way a vast amount of bad,  good   or  indifferent   whiskey   is  wasted,  and the drunkard's days  filled with visions of hades, blue  devils   and green snakes singing  comic opera.  THE COPPER MARKET  Be good and you will never be  sick.  These are the days when copper  mining is a bonanza and places  gold mining in the back seat. The  conditions of the market are highly  satisfactory and it is evident that  the present prices will prevail for  a long time owing to the consumption of the red metal being greater  than its production. All the available Etipply of copper k sold for  In behalf of Finance Minister  Fielding the plea of innocence is  presentod. Wo are asked to assume that this seasoned politician  became the member for Queens  and Shelbourne without the slightest suRpicion that the seat had been  bought for him, and in ignorance  of the fact that his agent, the  Speaker of the Legislature, had  distributed a portion of the corruption fund. Is not this theory of innocence becoming tiresome ? We  had it all through the Ross regime.  It will be remembered that the old  Ontario government was full of  Fieldings, who did not know what  was done in the way of ballot-box  stuffing, and that it was with pain  and astonishment that these recipients of ill-gotten political gains  learned that wrong had been committed in their behalf.  The usual explanation for corruption and fraud in Ontario was  that some misguided enthusiast had  imitated the practices of, the vile  Tories and   had   violated the law  that  good government might be  sustained!     We are having in Mr.  Finding's case a repetition of history.    The unsuspected politician,  according to the view now   promulgated, was actually forced into  parliament    through    the    over-  zealous acts of admirers who were  determined that the'eountry should  not become deprived of the services of so extraoreinary a statesman.    "It was altogether without  the knowledge.of Mr. Fielding that  wrong was done."     And it is a  grave injustice to this great and  good   man   that he should be de-  piivjd   of the seat which his supporters purchased for him!   This  argument iu defence of the robbery  of  the electors finds its answer in  LaPatrie, which voices the opinion  of   Mr.   Tarte,   a public man who  has been behind the scenes, and  who knows how things are done by  the Ottawa politicians.    La Patrie  says:���������"It is notorious that in each  election, that of Mr. Fielding in-  eluded, much money is spent.  Mr.  Fielding knows as do others, that  considerable sums have been employed in Nova Scotia.   He knows,  and yet he does hot know.   Let us  explain.     Mr.   Fielding  has too  much experience not to be aware  that there is in the party of which  he is one of the chiefs, and in the  Government of which he is a member,    organizations   the   duty of  which is to find the suras necessary to   conduct a campaign to a  successful   issue.     The leaders of  the   party are not in ignorance on  this subject.   The political mouey  comes,  with few exceptions, from  capitalists interested iu great enterprises or in   great speculations."  How, asked La Patrie, can this  deplorable    state    of   affairs .be  remedied?      Many      suggestions  have been   made.  , But our contemporary thinks that public education along lines that are clean is  the only cure.   If tho people are  taught not to look for money the  politicians will not have to provide  the financial inducement to vote*  The truth, then is quite the contrary to the representations made  in   the interests of Mr. Fielding.  The  Finance  Minister -is notau  injured  victim    of   improprieties  done    by    others.     He knows  that the money is  collected to  further his election.   He is aware  that it is collected that it may be  expended.  The truth is that the Ottawa  Government has its machinery  for the probecution either of fraud  or corruption. We saw this ma-  machinery working at fraud in  Brockvillo, the West Huron and  the St. James elections.   Wo were  introduced to it more recently in  tlie attempt to carry West Hastings and Frontenac by the ballot-  box schemes of Shibley and Byron  Lott. It made its activity known  once again in the Northwest,where  the officers of the Laurier Government cast the bogus ballots for the  so-called Liberal candidates. In  Mr. Fielding's case the policy pursued was systematic corruption,  and it is known that the roguery  exposed in the constituency represented by this politician was practised in every other county in the  province. If Mr. Fielding has remained ignorant of the conspiracy  against the liberties of the people  and the institutions of tho country  which found him a seat in parliament, his innocence amid such  splendid opportunities for acquir-_  ing knowledge is phenomenal, and  he is certainly not the astute politician he is represented to bo.���������  Mail and Empire.  Nat Reiss, the Pacific Coast Carnival King, has agreed to furnish  the midway at.the Spokane Intei-  state fair this year. The fair opens  September 24. Manager Robert  H. Cosgrove was anxious to secure  Mr. Reiss because the latter had  had more experience in this liar-:  thon any other man on the. coast.  Mr. Reiss will have entire charge  of this portion of the fair  and will bring his entire aggregation known as the Nat Reiss Southern Carnival company. He has  been in Spokane three or four  times, giving carnivals, street fairs  and festivals, and has delighted  people of the Inland Empire more  than any other company which has  appeared in the city.  This year the midway at night  will be one blaze of electric display, in which ten thousand incan-  descant lights will be used. These  will be arranged so as to make the  most attractive appearance.  Mr. Reiss is arranging to bring  Bp cial shows from all parts of the  United States to join his company  at Spokane. In this way Le will  give a far better carnival than was  ever put on before in this part of  the country. He will have a Mexican village, which is something  entirely new in this section. Mexicans will appear in their native'  costumes and will show their games  and dances, which are mos-t interesting.

'  Not for a long time has thero  been such a serious banking scandal as that-of the Milwaukee Avenue State' Bank, Chicago, whose  president, Paul 0. Stensland, is  now a fugitive from justice. A  day or so after he disappeared it  was reported that he was hiding in  Canada, a man answering his description having been seen on board  a steamer out of Duluth. Stenf-  land was in Canada a year ago and  if is not unlikely that he is here  now. Other rumors locate him in  Mexico, India, Norway.- Stensland is supposed to have a considerable amount ef cash on hand,  and will be able to enjoy himself  for some years to come, if he can  elude the detectives and chloroform his conscience.  The latter process should not be  too difficult, for Stensland's stealings from his bank extended over  a number of years and amounted  to more than $1,000,000. A course  of embezzlement carried on for so  long a time will not have left his  conscience very tender. The runaway banker ' was a Norwegian-  American, one of the most prominent in Chicago. His own countrymen treated him with implicit  confidence, and ho was regarded as  their leader, while in financial and  social circles he was held in high  respects. He was also a civic reformer, and many a fine interview  have the Chicago papers had with  him, in which Stensland rebuked  the modern spirit of gain, and ap-  appealed for higher ideals, not to  say a broader outlook; The small  merchants and savers of the northwest side of Chicago looked up to  Stensland as a model of industry  and integrity, and on hundreds of  occasions has the story of his success! put new/heaat in men struggling for a foothold.  Despite   the avowed rigidity of  Stensland's    busiuess    principles,  there was no austerity about him  after    business   hours..    He   delighted in entertaining hisfriends  at elaborate banquets, and spent  large sums in this way eacli year.  It was supposed, however, that he  was a millionaire, and no one suspected that it was the money of his  frugal   depositors   that   Stensland  was   using  on   costly   wines and  dishes.      Not   very Jong  ago he  crowned his career as bon vivant  by a banquet to the Norwegian  singers touring the United States.  He spent $2500 on this feast, and  so far as is known no one thought  of comparing him with the insurance culprits then in the public eye.  Five   weeks  ago Stensland disappeared,     but    no   suspicion   was  aroused  until he had three weeks'  start.     Then discovery was made  that the powerful bank was a mere  shell,  that it had been looted completely,  and that hardly anything  more than loose change remained  for tho deposits and the securities.  The  story   of   the looting was  soon  inado plain by tlie confession  of H. W.  Hering,  tho cashier of  the wrecked bank,  either an accomplice  or   a tool of Stensland,  and the finding of memoranda in  the president's hand, kept for his  private guidance.     The case does  present many now features, according  to  the  theory  of the police.  Stensland,  Hering and one or two  others. have   simply  stolen   tlie  money  of  the   bank   to minister  to their private pleasures to gamble  with and to support outside business ventures with which they were  connected.    The whole system of  fraud was founded on forgery, and  would be  impossible  without the  co-operation  of cashier and president.     Stensland   would  deposit  promisory notes bearing the fprgod  signature of customers of the bank  and draw out tho money.   Forged  mortgages   were  also put in, and  their equivalent in cash taken.    In  addition  Stensland kept a special  account series  of entries with a  funds'as.'he needed them  forged  note   was not at  he drew  when   a  hand. -   ���������  ^.Stensland was near detection  five years ago,, when an employe  was discovered to have stolen $50,-  000. The man was confronted by  the president and cooly admitted  his guilt. 'But he intimated that  people who live in glass houses  should never throw stones. Stensland understood the allusion, aud  contented himself with discharging  the man, refusing to prosecute.  Had the case got into the hands of  police the rotteness of the institution would have been discovered.  The fugitive's son, Theodore, vice-  president of the bank, is not  'thought to have participated in the  frauds, but is under arrest, for it is  claimed that he continued to receive deposits after knowing of his  father's flight. . It was through  Stensland jr., that the first hint of  the trouble was made known for the  younger man received a letter from  his father which revealed the situation. The next day he contiuued  business as though nothing bad  happened, and for this conduct  has been placed under arrest.  Many are the tragedies that have  failure of the bank, and more may  be added to the number. Following Stensland's flight and the arrest of the accomplices came the  suicide of the paying teller of the  bank. Kowalski is believed to  have been innocept, but was driven  to self-destruction by the reproaches and threats of depositors.  One of these, a married man with a  family had $700 on deposit. He  blew his brains out when he heard  of his loss. Another man had a  $5,000 account, and dropped dead  of heart failure on hearing that the  bank had failed. A third person  lost $200 and went violently insane. Others are prostrated. The  Chicago papers print long and  heartrending stories of the losses  of depositors, most of whom were  working people and who will be  ruined, for it is not thought that  tlie salvage will amouut to more  than a nominal sum. The State  Bank Examiner says the crash is  the worst in the history of Illinois-.  While extending the utmost sympathy to the suffers, Canadians  can well congratulate themselves  that similar crimes in this country  are made impossible by bur banking laws.���������Mail & Empire.'  import them. A South African  egg is an exceedingly .expensive  luxury, inasmuch a? it has to pay  an export duty of $125. This duty  of $125 per egg is imposed to prevent the shipment of ostrich eggs  to other parts of the world, South  Africa being anxious to keep the  profitable business of ostrich-breeding to itself as much as possible.  In South Africa, however, one  can buy ostrich eggs comparatively  cheap, and there they are even  used to some extent for rooking,  It is specially fashionable to employ them in the'manufacture of  Christmas puddings, to which they  are supposed to lend a peculiarly  delicious flavor.

Most of the eggs laid by American ostriches are hatched by means  of .incubators, the breeder being  able to persuade the hen bird to  yield an extra supply by secretly  pillaging the nest. But frequently  they fail to produce chicks, even  with tho most expert treatment.  Not long ago the Smithsonion Institution, in Washington, tried to  hatch an ostrich egg with the help  of a large Brahma hen, the egg being half buried in a nest of sand in  order that it might be covered satisfactory; but this little scientific  experiment did not turn out a success.  When an ostrich egg does not  hatch it is blown, the shell being  worth something for an ornament.  But the operation has to be performed with no little caution, because the egg is liable to explode  in tho process. If its contents  have deteriorated to some extent,  bo to Bpeak, gases will have developed which are liable to cause the  shell to burst as soon as it is weakened in any part, and to throw the  fragment with great force iu all  directions. Men have been quite  badly hurt by accidents of this  kind.

They left Chicago at mid-'  night and-the trip is well described  by tho writor as a nightmare.. The  preparatory two hours as a-cat .nap  wrapped'- in our overcoats on the  caboose transoms, only served to  intensify a lethargy and stupor  which- seemed momentarily ready  to engulf us in.a sea of benumbing  drowsines, lie says. But thanks  first to Dame Fortune, second, to  the character of our freight, third,  to a. message I sent to the dispatcher warning him of our conditio, and, fourth, to the fresh en:  gine crew, we were able to finish  our fifty-two hours of service without accident, and, sadder but wiser  Reverend Financier  Portland; Oregon, Aug. 2-i���������  ���������When J<ev.

Railway Acciicnts-  A recent issue of the New York  Outlook contains an article by a  railroad operative which gives a  partial explanation of why Amen-;  can railroads kill or main nearly  10,000 people annually���������almost  one for every two miles of track.  Tho long hours without sleep are  mainly responsible for this awful  destruction of life.  One case is cited in which a  train crew, with the writer of the  article as one of its members, remained on service for 42 hours  without sleep. At tho end of this  inn they met a meat train at Chicago ready to go ouc with no erew  available 'for the purpose, and  were asked to spend another ten  hours in taking it to its destination.  The conductor and brakeman  agreed   to  make   the  trip, with a  ;��������� New Fall Suits of latest patterns, and styles  and at prices that everybody can afford to- wear  M clothes,, ranging in price from $10 to $20.  ������ With each suit we give a.', suit-hanger, which  "gg will always keep your suit in shape when not������������������"Hj  in me* We have just received over 200 new m  samples from the largest and most r  tailoring house in Canada, the "Crown F..  ing Co.," which we sell at Eastern Prices  guarantee every suit to give satisfaction,  Speaking of the earlier part of  .this long spell on duty, when the  engin crew had been some SO hours  without sleep, the writer- quoted  says: "Strive as a- mortal may,  though inured to hardship and lack  of sleep, nerves will relax- then-  tension "��������� and eyelids will close.  Even the sense of responsibility  may fail to" jerk ii drooping head  back to consciousness. Such was  the case with Jake, the rear brake-  man, who, huddled in the seat on'  the other side of the cupola, despite gentle appeal or angry, malediction, slumbered'peacefully. At  Stark- we took siding to allow two  meat trains, and the night express,  all going in the opposite direction,  to pass. : Moreover, we had been  given an order in the form of a  schedule, stating that a special,  also eastbound, was due here at  3.15 a. m. I took out my watch,  shook Jake into semi-intelligence,  and sent him. to cool a smoking  hot box. .At3.10.vi. m., the -night  express hurled past, at 3.20 came  the first meat train,- and ten minutes later tho second section  thundered by, but no special.  Then, as with a jangle of couplings.,  I felt the caboose lurch forward, I  realized that the engineer had.-forgotten the belated special, and-wa--  pulling out of the side track to the  main line right iiv the way of the  oncoming special.' Seizing my lantern, I sped over the car roofs giving frantic stop signals as I ran.  Don't get mad neighbor���������this to  me as I,clambered down into the  cab. I must have dozed-oil1.and  woke up sudden with the idea that  special had passed, and with this  excuse the engineer threw over the  reverse lever and backed the train  into safety.  Nobody, he goes on, will question  the necessity of a good night's  rest to' the performance of keen,  accurate and .efficient work, and  yet how many people are there that  realize that the freight train crews  of American railroads, especially  in winter and on single track lines,  are often 'on duty from twenty-four  to thirty-six hours without sleep.  The artisan, the laborer, the miner,  the mill-hand and'the clerk work  but ten hours at the most during  the* twenty-four, and yet the men  who   share   with   the   eight-hour  Wo-have taken every summer blouse and cut the price.
