Western Float  PHOENIX HOOKEY  At Hockey, last Thursday,  Greenwood was defeated in Phoenix by a score of 10 to 3. Tho  Pioneer makes tho following remarks:  "The visitors had no combination and their individual work  was fruitless, but they did some  excellent shooting at long range  and only for the alertness of Lang  many of them would have tallied;  in fact this was the one dangerous  feature displayed by the visitors.  Greenwood has some new recruits  this winter, but the "ringers" did  not appear to stack op particularly.  The Russels and McDonald of last  year's team did more effective  work."  When his satanic majesty tempts  some people tbey want him to get  behind them���������and push.  A girl thinks a man impertinent  if be tries to flirt with her, and indifferent if he doesn't.

While Fernio and other towns  have been snow-bound, here in  Greenwood there is just enough  snow for sleighing. Ouly upon  one uight this winter has the thermometer plunged 20 degrees below  zero. Verily, the climate in the  Boundary is the finest in the world.  It is reported that Andy Sater  won $100 from J. B. Desrosiers by  betting upon the winner of the  mayoralty contest. Those acquainted with the above gentlemen  place no confidence iu such a wild  story, believing it to be' nothing  but the fabrication of some josher's  romancing mind.  The Annual Meeting of the St.  Jude's Guild was held ou Tuesday  January 10, in the Hall, when the  officers for the ensuing year were  elected, Mrs. Proctor being chosen  unanimously to tho post of President, and Mrs. Shaw, Vice-President. It was decided that in future the weekly meetings should bo  held each Tiicudav, in tho Hall, at  Trne to Inatraetlons.  My friend the newspaper man told  me a funny little story whioh happened  during tho Inst eleotion in a certain  nnwspapor office in this city.  Thoy were pressed for men and hnd to  take on some of tbe old printers thnt  went oat of offloe with the arrival of tbe  typesetting machines. Ono of tho editorial writers wrote whnt ho considered  ii fine effort of lhctorio ou .McKinley.  Kveiy page wtw soicly crowded, and tho  flat had gone forth that nothing fhonld  bo leaded, not oveu editorials. Iu tho  midst of tbe editorial -effusion occurred  tho following sentence: "McKinley's  name led all the rear,"  This piece of copy was turned over to  one of the old discharged men. To  everybody's astonishment half of tho  editorial in point was leaded, making a  very offending colnmu to tho eye.  The old printer wus sent for. He declared ho had followed copy exactly.  ABked to bring the proof, be hurried up  itaira and from a bundle of written  iheets extracted what he wanted.  In the meantime the editorial writer  had discovered that "led all the rest"  bad beeu omitted entirely, and ho wuf  madder than ever.  " Where is tho rest of that Bentonco?"  ho growled when the ancient fossil np-  peored with the copy. " You've chopped  this off at 'JMcKiuley'a name.' "  "Tbere is tho copy," said the aged  file. "Right ufterMoKinley'suamoyou  wroto 'led all the rest,' and I leaded it,  of course."  The editorial writer had nothing more  to say after that.���������St. Louis Republic.  Puzzling- tho Itojal Society.  The proceedings of the Royal society'  df Loudon were not taken so seriously  150 years ago ns they are now.   A sailor who had  broken his leg was advised  to send'to tho Royal society an account-  sf the femarknble manner iu which he  had healed tho fiv.cturo. lie did so. His  story was that, having fractured his log  by falling  from   the top of a mast, be  had dressed it with nothing but tnr and  ���������jalsum, which  had  proved so wonder,  tully efficuuious that iu three days Jin  -.vas able to Walk just  as well as before  .he   acciueut.    This remarkablo  story  naturally caused some rxcitement among  tho men:hers of the society. No one had  previously suspected tar and onknm cf  possessing   such    miraculous   healing  powers.   Thc society wrote for furlhcr  particulars aud doubted, indeed, whether  the leg had  been  really fractured.  The truth of this part of the story, how-  tver, was proved beyond tho shadow of  .���������^doubt-.Sevei-alJcttel-s passed between  the~Eoyar"s6cicty:n'ud ^tbe'humble sail-"  or, who continued to assert most solemnly that his broken leg had been treated  with  l:<r aud  oakum, and with   these  two   application?   only.

Greenwood v Grand Forks  The first Hockey match ia the  new rink between the above teams  wss played ou Monday eveniug, a  large company being present. The  game was keenly fought and excitement ran very high as each  team visited the opposing eud.  Grand Forks were the first to  score but the home men soon equalized. Eich team scored again  and at the call of time the score  was 2 up each. Extra time being  played the visitors put on two  more aud won out by 4 to 2. The  return match takes place on Friday evening, when, with another  referee, Greenwood should win.  It seems strange that a referee  cannot keep his ejes ou both teams.  Excess of zeaf often produces roughness in a game, but tho way in  which player after player on one  side was sent to the fence, gave the  impression that only oue team was  guilty, when, as a matter of fact,  considering the injuries received by  the homo players, they had a good  deal of roughness to put up with.  Boxing Competition.  Under the auspices of the Hockey  club a boxing competition was held  iu the Auditorium, last Saturday  evening, a large company was present. Two preliminaries, McMillan, Greenwood, vs Montana Kid,  Phoenix; and Angus McGilivray,  Butte, Mon., vs Billy Biner, Phoenix, in which good boxiug was  shown, especially in the second  bout, were disposed of and the  event of the evening annonnced,  C. J. Smith, champion bantamweight of Alberta, vs C. McCarthy,  ex champion bantam-weight of  Canada, quickly got work. Early  on in the first round it was seen  that McCarthy was the heavier  man aud possessed also a longer  reach and he soon had the measure  of his opponent. In the second  round the boxing was much more  even and was an even break at the  end. In tho third round McCar-  soou had his man in difficulties  and finally knocked him out.  Wop.

Beneath  him the  waves were curling hi  on the beach,  casting a line of foam over the smooth  sand, and receding with an effervescing sound.   There may be people who  can sit and watch this iueessant rolling lu aud recession of waves with a  stolid   Indifference.    Not   so   George  Warrington, vvlio.se spiritual part 'vus  made of finer stun" thnu  that  of the  average .mun'or woman.    To'him the  '- billows told stories of Inliniiy.    More  than that; ilicy bi-uughi lilm memories.  There was a tlnjri* of sadness I" it all,  for he was alone In the world, without  wife or child.  The waves were recalling to bim a  picture of his .vouih. He had seen It  from a hotel window. The hour was  -.between dtiyli^hl 'anil'clurlc.-"' l-'ar out  on the horizon a full moon was rising,  a belt of cloud 'across Its center. Nearer a black hulk was rising aud falling  monotonously. .���������Nearer still lay a point  of rocks, At low tide It was a little  peninsula, nl half, title nn island embracing a few 'square, yards, at full  tidp submerged . On lis face, looking  out .upon and 'absorbed in the beautiful scene, sutn girl. Since she had  gone there the siiiid behind her had  beeu covered by tlie rising waters, and  , she was unconscious tlmt her' retreat  over dry land hnd been cut off.  Quick thought shot through the brain  of the young man looking out of the  '���������window.'" The tide his fancy transfigured   to  a  savage   in   the   wilderness  with raised'tomahawk stealing on his  prey.    Again  It was a serpent encircling  the girl   and  drawing its  coils  closer and  closer about ber.    It was  ���������'.really,   au    inanimate   ocean    unconsciously surrounding a girl unmindful  of all save the beautiful scene before  her.  In that region the tide runs with  great rapidity. Warrenton knew this  nnd, rushing down several flights of  stairs, dashed over the sand toward  the girl. As lie ran he looked to see if  a boat were lying anywhere near on  the beach. None was In sight.'������������������..Reaching the strip of water closing In behind  the rock, he plunged in and swam  across.  The girl's reverie was broken by looking up and seeing a dripping figure be-  ������lde her.  "Come, quick! You're cut off by the  tide."  Turning, she saw the swirling waters  behind her. Her face lost Its color, for  Bbe would be helpless in that quick  current.  She stood paralyzed.  "Come!" repeated   VVurrlngton.    But  be did not wait for her to iuove.   Seizing her hand, he drew her, supporting  her at the same time, to tbe margin of  the torrent.   She shrank back.   Forcibly dragging her into it, enr-ircling her  with one arm, be swam with the other.  Tbe distance across  the current  was  not long, but it ran so swiftly that the  two were carried along till they found  themselves  at   the   end   of   the   little  Btruit. where they were tossed on the  waves.  Then came a test of endurance. War-  .  rington was strong and a good swimmer,  but  by   this  time  the  girl   was  clutching him so as to Impede his efforts.   At that hour few were on. the  beach and none within call.   Warrington's efforts were having less and less  effect, and he was about to give up  hope both for himself and his burden  when he heard the sound of oars. Making an effort, he got his bead as far as  possible above tbe surface and shouted:  "Help!"  The sound of oars ceased, then recommenced with a quicker stroke, and  In less than a minute the dark body of  a boat appeared on the crest of a wave  above the drowning couple.   Then a  hand   was extended,  and  Warrington  put out his own hand and grasped the  pun wale of the boat. Between the newcomer and Warrington  the drowning  girl was got Into the boat.   Then Warrington was helped In by the boatman.  While Mr. Warrington was passing  In memory over the scene that had occurred more thau thirty years before a  woman   whose white hair contrasted  with   her  comparatively   young  face  came up and stood with her hands on  the piazza rail, looking out upon tho-  shlromer that was beginning to extend  Itself from the rising moon. She turned  and was about to go away when she  noticed the man sitting near her.  There  was something In bis appearance, his  wrapt attitude, to tell her that be, like  herself, possessed tbe gift of appreciation   of the beautiful.   She  felt  Impelled to address him.  "Isn't It charming?" sho exclaimed,  half to him.  "Say, rather. Infinitely grand," he replied, rising nnd uncovering.  "Wo women are apt to see the beautiful, you men the grand." she continued.

"I dare say," she said, "tbat you are  surprised at my revealing to one I  have never met before so sacred an experience.

All Nervous Diseases Cured  by Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.  Nerves   thnt  are    over-worked    or  weak   quickly  indicate  their distress  by pain.   That pain may be neuralgia or inflamed nerves,  usually    affecting the head, but often the spine  and limbs.    It may be nervous dyspepsia,  easily started by  worry,  excitement or weakness.   It may be St.  Vitus  dance,    a   'common'" -affliction  among    children,, or neurasthenia,; a  condition of gcnerul nervous exhaustion accompanied    by   acute   melancholy.    Worst  of   all  the   pain   may  signal   the   early   stages   of  paralysis |  or ��������� nervous' decay.    All   thesedisor-]  ders  signify  that  the hungry  nerves  are clamoring for .nourishment in the  form of'good, 'rich  blood. , The numerous cures of tlio above named nervous   diseases   and   weakness,.'.'in   both  sexes  by    Dr.   Williams'   Pink  Pills,  lire  accounted  for   by the  fact    that  these  Pills  actually  make  new,  rich  blood    and    so    supply   thc  starved  I nerves with  the vital elements need-  ! ed to strengthen them.    Mr. Win. G.  Jones,   Wcstmead,    Man.,    says:    "A  few ye.-.is ago  it ,was my misfortune  to    suffer    from    nervous -    debility,  brought  about   through   a  severe   attack of la grippe or influenza.   When  the  first effects  were  felt I  used  to  wake up in thomiddle of sleep trembling  like a  loaf,  and  in  a  bath...-of  cold   perspiration.       Later   the "trouble grew so  bad  that I scarcely  got  0 wink  of  sleep,    and    wsuld    toss  about in  bed, growing so  weak  that  1 feared for  my life.    A  doctor was  called    in,    and    then    another,  but  without  avail.    I   became   more   and  more  low .spirited,   and   without  any  apparent   reason   would  have .fits: of  crying.    While  in  this condition,    a  nervous    wreck,    a ".pamphlet'    was  given mc telling what Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  had clone for others,  and  I   determined   to  give   them   a  trial.  By the time I had    finished    a   few  boxes I began to get some sleep, and  this greatly encouraged me. Then my  ���������strength  began to return,  my neryes  grew   steadier   and   in   a   few   weeks  more 1  was feeling as well as ever I  did in my life, and you may be sure  r   will   always   gratefully   recommend  Dr. WiU'ains' Pink Pills to every one  sick or ailing,  as they   restored    me  fo health and strength after all other  medicines had failed."

WanteJ for Stealing  Fares  and Sell-  ��������� ing-Tickets.  (From Montreal Gazette.)  Judge Lanctot,, at the request of the  crown prosecutor, has issued a bench  warrant- for the arrest of E. Smith, a  former sleoping-car conductor in the  employ of the Canadian Pacific rail-  way company, who at one time ran  between Montreal and Vancouver, and  latterly between Montreal and' Toronto.  Early in October information reached the Crown authorities which led up  to Smith's" arrest for stealing sleeping  car fares, and for stealing and selling  railway tickets to various persons in  Montreal and elsewhere. Smith had  a preliminary hearing and was committed for trial to the Court of'King's  Bench, his case being set for thc 10th.  When called, he failed to appear,  with the result that his bail was forfeited and a bench warrant issued for  his arrest.  The case caused a good deal of interest in ruilway circles, .and it is  probable that other than railway people wi.'Vkecome interested, as the  names and addresses of quite u number of people with whom lie has been  doing business are known, and it is  likely that before thc matter is fifhil-  ly disposed of several of the hunters  for bargains in railway transportation will be dealt with.  "It is really too bad," said a high  official of thc Canadian Pacific, "that  tho  travelling   public  should   suggest  such  dishonesty  to    conductors.      If  passengers  would   refrain  from   making  conductors   steal   from   the   company  by offering them facilities  and  inducements   to   do   so,   it  would   he  hotter for them in every way.

Morally thoy  arc as guilty, if not more so, than the  conductors   whom   they   train   to   become thieves, and the practice of trying  to got  this  cheap  transportation  at  the expense  of the  company and  the honesty of the conductors cannot  be too sharply repressed.  "In the present instance it has led ���������  to the ruin of a young man and the'  breaking up of his home. While wc  are sorry for those who suffer 'by it,  the company must stop this business  of stealing fares, and prosecution will  follow every' instance that is discovered.  vuijw.'-..'  m  (HOST PERFECT WBADE  ..

Hindustan has more nations than  the continent ot Europe, and more  races than you will find on tlie hemisphere of tlie Americas, livery locality  has its own tribes and peculiar castes,  and here and there are peoples of  whom the world knows nothing, writes  Frank G. Carpenter.  There is one great class known as  jungle people. They live in the woods  and are about as savage as the natives of the Congo. They believe in  witches and witcii doctors and make  bloody sacrifices. Wild dances "are a  part of their worship. These people are  generally known as Animists and they  number 8,000,000 or 9,000,000. They  live in all sorts of ways, feeding largely on wild herbs and fruits, and dwelling in caves or temporary shacks,  which they leave when they seek a  new location.  In the eastern Himalayas are the  Nagas, the descendants of the ancient  snake worshippers. They are head  hunters and now and then raid the  lowlands. In southern India are the  Yanadis, who have round huts made  of brushwood, and who support themselves on jungle fruits and wild honey.  They are as shy as our Negritos and  will run at the sight of a white man.

In Siam, as in manypaitsof the  east where a waterworks system has  not been installed, the population is  absolutely dependent upon canal, river and rain water for' drinking and  bathing purposes. In Bangkok, a city  of so- many klongs, or canals, that it  has been called the Venice of the east,  the native population drink the river  and canal water, not having thc means  for storing rainwater,-and thus usually without filtering or boiling, with  the result that all the year round  there is alarge mortality from cholera  which, immediately before the commencement of the rainy season in  April and'"May> when the river and  canal waters -become brackish, runs  up into thousands daily. Those who  can afford it use filters, and some even  boil the water after it has been filtered. Several artesian wells have bsen  sunk, but this water, as well as distilled and soda water, is sold and is  therefore beyond the reach of the natives.  which is set' into action by a pendulum.

The kaiser possesses a remarkable  collection of foreign uniforms. They  fill two large rooms and are kept in'  immense cupboards. But in the many  presses there is hot to be found a  dressing gown. Shortly after the war  of 1870 a manufacturer in the south  of Germany sent to the then emperor  a costly dressing gown of gold brocade. This dressing gown was returned to the manufacturer with the  briei remark, "The Hohenzollorns do  not wear dressing gowns," the meaning being that the Hohenzollerns are  scarcely out of bed before they are in  their uniforms. William II. has kept  up the habit, and has never felt the  necessity, of possessing a dressing  gown.  Mediterranean Blue.  The extraordinary blueness of the  Mediterranean has two causes.. One  is'that very few large rivers of fresh  water run into this sea; the second  that the Mediterranean is practically  landlocked and, being exposed to a  powerful sun, evaporation is great.

He Did  Not  Need a Wife  Kansas newspapers are getting a lot  of pleasure out of this incident, which  is said to have actually happened in  an eastern Kansas county. A farmer  received a note from a young man  who had been "going with" his  daughter. It read: "Deer Sur: Wood  like your dauters hand in marriage.  She and me are in luve. I think I  needs a wife.   Yours trooly."  The farmer replied by letter, saying: "Friend: You don't need a wife.  You need a spelling book! Get one  and study it a year. Then write me  again."���������Kansas City Journal.  An officer bet another a large sum  of money that he could not empty a  quart bottle of champagne at one  draught. He asked for half an hour  to think the matter over, which was  granted. When he returned he took  the champagne, drank it off, and  claimed the money. He was asked  why it took him so long to accept the  bet. "Well," he said, "I was not  quite sure that I could do it, my  dear fellow, so I went home first  and tried the experiment."  Method   In  Her Badness. 1  "Why in the world did you try to'  evade the payment of duty?"  "I expected all the time to pay it,"  replied the star.  "But the horrid customs men went  through your trunks."  "Of course they did, and found several gowns worth $800 apiece. I  couldn't have given the figures to the  reporters ,myself, coujd_l?"  "So you broke your engagement  with Miss Spensive?"  "No.  -1 didn't break it."  "Oh, she broke it?"  "No, she didn't break it."  "But it is broken?"  "Yes, she told me .what her clothing  cost and I-told her ..what my income  wus, then our engagement sagged in  the middle und gently dissolved."  murders as I do; and before going  farther I ��������� must admit that, ^though  within five minutes of the perpetrator  one night, and with a very fair description of him besides, he completely beat me and every other police officer in London; and I have no more  idea now where he lived than I had  20 years ago.  "After the second crime I sent word  to Sir Charles Warren that I had discovered a man very likely to be the  man wanted. He certainly had all  the qualifications requisite.- He had  been a medical student; he had been  in a lunatic asylum; he--spent all his  time with women of loose character,  whom he bilged by giving-them polished farthings instead of sovereigns  ���������two of those, farthings having been  discovered in the pocket of the murdered woman. ��������� Sir Charles failed to  find him. 1 thought he was likely to  be in Rupert street, Haymarket. I  sent un two men there, and thcrs he  was; "uut polished farthings and all,  he proved an alibi without the shadow  if a doubt.  "In August, 18.33, when I was desperately keen to lay my hands on the  murderer, I made such arrangements  as I thought would ensure success.  I put early a third of the force into  plain clothes, with instructions to  do everything' which, under ordinary  circumstances, a constable would not  do. It was subversive of discipline;  but I had them well - supervised by  senior officers. The weather was lovely, and I have little doubt they  thoroughly enjoyed themselves sitting  on doorsteps, smoking their pipe,  hanging about public houses and gossiping with all and sundry.  "Did he live close to the scene of  action, or did he, after committing a  murder, make,his way with.lightning  speed to some retreat in the suburbs?  Did he carry something with him to  wipj the blood from his hands, or did  he find means of washing them? were  questions I asked myself nearly every  hour of the day. It seemed impossible that he could be living in the  very midst of us; and, seeing the  Metropolitan Pohce had orders to  stop every man walking or driving  late at night or early in the morning,  till he gave a satislactory account of  himself, more still that he could gain  any suburban district wi+.hout being  arrested.  "The excitement had toned down  a little and I was beginning to think  he had either gone abroad or retired  froin business, when.'Two more women murdered in the East End!' raised excitement again to concert pitch."  As a descriptive reporter, Sir Charier  shines in his thrilling "story" of the  two quick murders of Elizabeth Stride  and Catherine Endowes, and the almost miraculous escape of the murderer kfrom Mitre Square, the severed  piece of apron discovered soon afterwards a third of a mile away, and  the writing on the wall immediately  above it:  "The Jews are the, men that won't  be blamed for nothing."  Sir Charles Warren immediately ordered these words to be wiped out,  alleging as his reason for so doing  that he feared a rising against the  Jews. -  Tliis was,' I thought a fatal mistake, as Superintendent Mac William  plainly told Sir Charles. It is jusl  possible that the words, if photographed, might have afforded an important clue.  "Jack" washed his hands at a sink  in Dorset street, six yards away, and  though Sir Henry arrived there in  time to see the water still bloodstained, and though the police pack bayed  the district all night��������� "I finally got  to bed at 6 a.m., after a very harrass-  ing nighty completely defeated."  Sir Charles laughs at Sir Robert']  Anderson's "confessions" in Black-  woods and his reinvestigation of the  whole case of Jack. He says, with  some sarcasm: "If Sir Robert can  spaifc a few minutes, there are two  books, I think, well worthy of his perusal���������'Bleak House' and the Bible.  In the former book, Mile. Hortense, to  divert suspicion from herself, writes  'Lady Deadlock, murdress'���������with what  result Inspector Buckett tells us. In  the latter Daniel, interprets the writing on the wall which brought things  to a crisis at Belshazzar's feast."  is the food-medicine that  not only, nourishes them'  most, but also regulates  their digestion.

There is an  acreage of 1,118 acres, and the yearly  let' is $750. Most of the land is not  adapted for the plow. Last year the  surplus, revenue was $475. The City  Fathers have fixed the upset price at  $20,000, and some capitalist of a misanthropical frame of mind would find  the island of Shuna an ideal abode,  as it is two miles from the mainland,  and off the track of steamers.   ���������������������������"���������'  Mr.  Penn���������They say thc streets in  Boston are frightfully crooked?

Lord Winterton earned the nickname  of "The Baby" when he was returned  as M.P. for Horsham just after his  twenty-first birthday. But although  he was barely of ag*e, he soon attracted considerable attention by his debating powers, his debut as,a politician  being watched with considerable interest by both parties, on account of  the fact that one of his ancestors, Sir  Edward Turnover, was at one ; time  Speaker of the Commons. Lord Winterton, who now edits The World, is a  fine all-round sportsman and a magnificent shot. He owns, besides his  acres in Sussex, a goodly section of  Si.

Instead of giving five places the  monopoly to sell liquor in this city  for 8800' a year, the city would  make more money by going into  the booze business to the exclusion of all others. This experiment is to be tried in Camas, a  town in western Washington, tbat  has recently declared for alcoholic  humidity.  For the third time Nelson has  elected Selous for its mayor, and  Charley Waterman has saved his  bacon. In its civic election Nelson  shows tbat it wants saloons, draw  poker, and that the trail-blazers  are favorites in that city. James  Albert McDonald made a strong  run, but the time has'not yet come  for reformers like Jim to succeed in  the city that once bad Houston for  a boss.  GIVES A BLACK EYE.  has the   following  upon the subject:  "The fact that  Patsy   Clark   is  butting into the Kepublic   mining  camp may indicate sincere business  intentions.   But it often happens  that a business conspiracy is imposed on a valuable industry for  purely speculative reasons.    Mr.  Clark once took options and accepted bonds on properties in the  Keller camp.    He let his bonds  lapse, after a small payment and  then deserted the district.    While  he held   the   bond   options many  speculated;   many  invested    and  many lost their money   The  properties here on   which   Mr.   Clark  took options are as valuable today  as ever, but his manipulations impaired their standing after he surrendered   his   bonds.     The  best  business method  in   mining   is to  first find ore values  and  put  the  ore on the market at current market prices, receive the  profits aud  not depend upon what Patsy Clark  or some speculative  plunger   may  say.   Jay Gould made his millions  wrecking railroads, not  by   building or operating them,   and   there  are many of that same class of men  engaged in mining.    Mr.   Clark's  name in this dietrict gave it a great  standing for the time;   but   when  be withdrew   his interests  he did  the camp great harm.   Our honest  advice to investors is to first find a  mine, and then work it regardless  of any speculative hot   air splurge  Patsy Clark or anybody else  may  make.   Money and mining  go together but until the  mine  proves  itself to be a  money  maker  why  speculate on the reputation of Pat  gy Clark or any other millionaire.'  i p.

LESTER MACKENZIE, Secty  LOWERY'S pLAIM  During the 87 months that Lowery'e  Claim was on earth it did business all  ovor the world. It was tlie most  unique, independent ond fearless journal ever produced in Canada. Political  and theological enemies pursued it with  tlio venom of a rattlesnake until the  government shut It out of tho mails,  and its editor ceasnd to publish it,  paitly on account of a lazy liver and  partly because It takes n pile of money  to run a paper that is outlawed. Qhere  are still 25 different editions of this condemned journal in print. Send 10 emits  and get one or ������2 60 and get the bunch.  R. T. LOWERY,  Greenwood, U, 0  Patsy Clark, J. A.   Finch,   and  other men of their class  often   injure   mining   camps   by bonding  large numbers of claims, scratching  the surface, and then throwing up  the bonds.    In  the  Slocan  years  ago, Clark bonded the   Reco   and  threw it up.   That mine  has produced nearly half a  million  since  then.    Finch and his partner bonded 24 claims in the fliocan   nearly  two decades ago, dug into  them a  few feet, and abandoned the entire  lot, with probably the exception of  tbe Enterprise.    This   method of  throwing up everything that  does  not -pay from the grass-roots is injurious to any camp, as others are  slow to follow where eminent raining and plunging men have pulled  their freight.

The editor of the Cumberland Islander does not like thi-  interference with the  liberties   of  tbe people and remarks as follows.  "While the Lord's Day Alliance  people may take great credit upon  themselves for the Sunday  closing  of post-office lobbies, it is doubtful  if the general public will give them  credit for anything but a vacuum  filled cranium,and with being meddlesome maniacs who have with the  co-operation of an equally demented Postal Department succeeded in  curtailing tbe liberties of the people.

Whenever yon are inconvenienced by being unable to get to yonr  post-ofllce box on a Sunday remem  ber it is not the Lord, but the  Lord's Day Alliance people upon  whom yon must place the blame.  The lesson that these fanatics  seem nnable to filter into their  empty think-tanks is that the ordinary mortal is much more easily  led then driven, and that you cannot legislate a sonl into heaven."
