The Hudson's  Bay company has  undertaken to whipsaw  at the hatchory sites tlie lumber  for the buildings, but when it discovered, that an opposition steamer  lino was to receive all the freight  hauling,    it   concluded'   that   its  whipsaws were out of order.

This  minister .refused   to   become,   responsible  for a liability    of some I  S150,00(),000 from which no result j  advantageous to the country would  be derived.     Clifford Sifton, who  had  been  the enemy of Mr. Tarte  and  Mr.  Blair, was forced put on  the North West autonomy question.  His   severe   religious  views prevented him from accepting the legislation   proposed   by   his leader  ing May, and about 2,500 tons  were smelted, leaving over 33,000  tons on hand at tlie smelter at the  close of the month. The shipments of bullion in May amounted  to about $40,000.  The property is being worked  steadily, with about GO men at tlie  mine and 140 men at the smelter.  The capacity of the roaster is being  doubled and will make it possible  to keep the smelter in continuous  operation.

In the conviviality of the occasion  he forgot the  more serious duty of  the evening,   iind when, at a late  hour, he rose, his speech was by no  means   as   luminous  as   it might  have been.   The. leporter, knowing  that   if  would   not do to print the  notes  as   they stood, called on Sir  John   the   next day and told him  that he was not quite sure of having secured   an   accurate   report.  He  was   invited   to read over his ongina  notes,   but   he  had   not gone far  when   Sir   John   interrupted him  with   "That   id not what I said.'.'  K1*'1'.

MARSHALL, Prop,  0  ' Though the public seem to he  nonplussed by the state of all'uii-s  in Cobalt, the situation there is  not at the present time more perplexing than it ever was. The difference is with the people who  make the market for mining stock.  They .formerly supposed that they  know .all about the productiveness  of Cobalt mining properties; now  they have their .doubts. Hence,  tlicre is -a falling off iu tbe share  trade.  This share trade is all that has  intrinsically  changed.    There has  it is- true,   been cessation of dividends in exceptional cases;   but the  total  output continues as large as  ever aud  the return per ton seems  to be keeping up very well.    Why.  then,  it may be asked, is the confidence in    Cobalt   not  being expressed by  the same active share-  buying as what we had a year ago?  One reason is that mining companies,   extremely  prolific of  shares,  have multiplied at a rate to alarm  investors.     To  buy at their nominal  value all  the   Cobalt stocks  that have been  issued in tbe last  brooding twelvemonth  would  require  more  money  than it would  take  to  payoff Canada's national  debt.     Such  a  progeny  of stock-  teeming   companies    might    well  make , investors  tenacious of their  money,   for prices could not but be  flattened by  tho  verj' quantity of  the stocks  put on the market.    17  the quantity  leveled down prices,  what   is to be said of the effect of  the lowr .quality of a great volume  of these issues? '  To the least discerning  it must have been evident  that many  stocks offered were entirely     without     proved     merit.  Knowing enougn   to satisfy themselves. On this  point,, ordinary-investors  would   be  inclined to mistrust stocks  of  which  they knew  nothing.      I'rif.ish capilii! has been  particularly wary  towards Cobalt  propositions,  much   more so than  American  capital  has bei������n.    Tbe  host of 'new companies warned off  experienced English  investors who  had learned at some cost from their  adventures in   the Band how unsubstantial  mining companies are  liable   to   be   that   come forth in  swarms.      For   the   restriction of  company  formation   in connection  with   the   exploiting   of   mineral  areas it   would   seem possible for  much  more to  bo  done by public  authority than has  heretofore been  done.     The government should be  cautious about giving license to any  group   of   men   to   issue   mining  stocks.     It is all very well to say  that  there must be a presumption,  but    with  a   most  familiar fact,  namely, that in every mining boom  millions  of dollars are lost by our  saving class.     Tho  truth  is,   the  confidence of the average buyer of  mining stocks is partly obtained by  the   government   sanction   under  which  the company  operates not  altogether by persuasions as to the  merits of the property.  AVhon tho peoplo become shy  of mining stocks as evidently they  are now, the necessity for adopting  measures to check the multiplying  of mining companies may seem to  ho lessened, for when the public  aro beginning to look out for themselves it may be felt that there is  no need for the state to come to  their assisstance. That comfortable view is not to be trusted. Let  there bo two or threo sensational  "strikes" of ore, ami it will at  once appear how little the self-re-  straintof the public really amounts  to. The market for mining shares  would again bo worked, up ton.  statu of feverish excitement, and  chances would be taken on worthless stocks exactly as thoy were  before. Some additional check  should lio put on the formation of  mining companies.���������Mail-Umpire.  Job Printing at Tho Lodge.  Women Ride'in Breeches  Women who ride in breeches are  by no mean's uncommon now, despite the horror openly,expressed  by some more conservative friends,  the same friends who a few years  ago were startled by the then unusual custom of riding astride.  As tho latter styles became more  general the habitmakcrs responded  readily to the demand for divided  skirts, which were easier to make  than the sidesaddle habit.'  Building on tbe fact that a leading jYew York riding academy refused to teach adult women to ride  j$ *���������  astride, . opponents of the new  fashion took courage iind predicted  that its vogue would be short  lived.  These predictions have not been  realized. On the contrary, riding  astride is more popular than ever.  The academy which stood out for  the side saddle and refused to teach  riding astride to women capitulated  several months ago. Jt was forced  to. The manager found that by  sticking to his resolve he was  simply helping other riding  schools.  Those who know say that the  custom of riding astride is now  more general than ever before���������  not so much in JSTew York perhaps  as in the suburbs and at resorts in  the south and west frequented by  New York women, some of whom  make a point of sedately ft side  saddle when in Central park, but  as soon as they shake New York's  dust from thoir boots exchange the  side saddle fora man's saddle.  What is more,' ' fashionable  women have gone a step further.  Many have discarded the. divided  skirts iu favor of riding breeches,  almost a facsimile of those worn by  men, pistol pocket included'. Express surprise at'this to a certain  Fifth avenue habitmaker who is  patronized extensively by the  smart   set   and   he  in   turn looks  surprised.  i        *��������� >' ��������� .  No,   of   course   not,, he says,in  answer to a question. My latest  designs of womens' riding dress are  not likely "to be seen in Central  Park. In fact, I may say that  they are never seen there, for the  reason that most of ray patrons are  skilled .riders, women who have  ridden since they were children,  and who don't care for anything so  tame as a ride in tbe park. Besides, they are never in town except iu midwinter, a season when  few women riders are seen in thc  park. After tbe holidays they are  oil' to the southern resorts, in the  spring they go to their country  houses or to California, or across  the ocean to ride on the other side.  The popularity of riding astride  can't be judged by Central Park.  I have orders for twice as many  riding astride habifs this spring as  I had two years ago, and instead of  only making the divided skirt 1  I have two other styles equally  popular. Both of. these have  breeches. One is worn with a  short skirt and short basque jacket  the other without a skirt and with  a long tailed coat���������at least a long  tailed coat is ordered with the  breeches, but often the breeches  are worn with a short jacket or  only a shirtwaist. The long coat  is for dress up.  The breeches displayed by the  tailor were cut a trifle fuller than  those worn by the man, a puckering of the material at the inner  seam giving an increased looseness  at the knee, but with this exception  they were a facsimile of another  pair displayed which will' be worn  by a man rider. The long coat <o  match the breeches, made also of a  ���������very dark brown habit crossed  with fine stripes of mixed green,  was not unlike a man's double-  breasted frock coat fitted smoothly  at the back and sides, the skirls  attached about three inches below  tho waistline.  This coat reaches to within six  or seven inches of the floor when  the wearer is standing and when  she is on the horse thelail reaches  the stirrups.

Many   reasons   surely   must   influence  men   and  women to help in the great work being carried on by the  MUSK0KA FREE HOSPITAL  .    FOR CONSUMPTIVES.  Other hospitals refuse the consumptive. This  institution cares for them.  Wot  a single applicant has ever been  refused admission to the ftrfuskoka Free  HospstaS for Consumptives because of  his or her poverty.  Seven hundred and thirty-eight patients have  been cared for since the Free Hospital was opened  in  1902.    Take a week's record :  63 patients in residence; 37 absolutely  free, not paying a copper toward their  maintenance; 15 paying 50 cents a day  or less; 5 paying $4.00 a week ; 4 paying-  ������15.00; one paying* $7.00.  These figures tell plainly of a larg-e deficit on  maintenance  account each month,   To cover i I  this the trustees are dependent I' \       j  upon the contributions that  coint to them from friends.in all  parts of Canada.

French Idea of Education  The whole system of education  in France lakes cognizance of the  situation of the individual in a  way absolutely unknown toour  American system of education.  There is education for the masses  in France, but this is regulated so  that a child, boy or girl, is instructed according to his station in  ife.."  If the child has it"i 11 him he may  advance to  what rank he will, but.  in   the beginning he is taught such  branches   of   knowledge   as   best  comport with    the   limitations  of  n's  lot in life as it actually exists.  When      necessity     compels    the  French  girl  receives an education  which  enables her .to be self supporting���������that  is,   she  is  taught a  trade.or profession.    She is taught  this,   however,   iu   relation   to the  law that if a  man  will   work he  must work, which is made to apply  to both  sexes alike, iu France ; she  does 'not. therefore, aim to bo self-  supporting  in  order  to attain tho  emancipation  of her sex from any  of    the    relations,  and   fuucMons  which nature imposes upon women;!  on the  contrary, the trades or professions in which  she is most often  skilled  are those which pertain to  the   household   and   to the rearing  of children.���������Harper's Bazaar.

The  tree has large spurs which project  from the trunk at its base, aud  scaffolds must be erected so that  the trees can be cut oil' above the  spurs. This leaves a stump ten to  fifteen feet high, which is sheer  waste, as the stump really contains  the best lumber.
