In Bristol, England, docks have  lately been constructed that can  handle the largest steamer afloat.  This will divert a great dealiof  trade to Canada.- The influence of  the Great Western Railway will  unquestionably be withdrawn from  the port of Liverpool and transferred to Bristol.. As ������ result  great benefit will accrue to Montreal and Canada, to the detriment  of New York. Tho (3reat Western  Railway of lilngland :is recognized  as having the best agency system  for the securing of railway business of any railway in the world.  This great company does not enter  Liverpool and does outer Bristol.  In the past it has been compelled  to carry its business to Liverpool  since that was the sailing port.  That it will in future take its business to Bristol, on its own line,  appears to be inevitable. The  point of landing on this side of the  water will be at Montreal, not at  New York, and the American city  will'get another jolt from its grbw-  rival in Canada.

Mrs/ Thomas' Rowe and Miss  Hilda Pfrkins are on a visit to  Grand Forks.  Sometimes it takes seventeen  days for papers to"reach Greenwood  from Prince Rupert.  The busy beavers are causing'  Eholt Creek to overflow and flood  valuable ranching land.  During the past week strawberries have been selling at two  bits a box in Greenwood.  E. Jacobs, the leading writer on  mining matters in this province,  was in Greenwood last week.  Mrs. E. J. Cartier went to Spokane last week to meet her sister,  who is coming from New York to  spend the summer in Greenwood.  Jim Hickey left last Friday for  Fairbanks, Alaska. He came to  Greenwood twelve years' ago and  his many friends wish him success  in the frozen north.  The Greenwood Liquor Company  received a carload of Pabst beer  this week. During the,year this  company sells a long trainload of  Pabst aud Calgary beers.  The C.P.'R. changed the time of  the passenger trains on the Boundary run last Monday. -The east-  bound train leaves Greenwood at  12:10, and the westbound at 14:50.  ���������' In Ottawa, the red tape in connection with the postoflice building  for Greenwood is commencing to  unravel. Mr. Frith received a  letter last week from the government asking how many people in  Greenwood enjoyed the luxury of  renting a postoflice box.  The Musical Eckhardts (swiss  handbell ringers,) gave a first-  class entertainment in the Opera  house last week, under the auspices of the fire department. All-  the performers were stars, aud it  is-hoped that a larger audience  will welcome them "on their next  visit. ���������    ��������� ���������"- ���������-^���������i; .-  Love and G. Kay (secretary),  of the Phoenix Pioneer; J. L.  Meikle and O. Pearson, of the  Grand Forks Gazette; E. Rowland  (chairman), of tho'Boundary Creek  Times; and J. H. Willcox, of the  Ledge. Dinner was served at the  Brooklyn hotel, and the proprietor,  James Marshall did the needful  in a manner that was par excellence. The afternoon was spent  in looking through the Granby  mine and premises. Messrs Love  and Kay proved themselves capable  guides.  By July 20th, the Greenwood  Smelter will be smelting from 2,300  to 2,500 tons of ore every day. By  that time the enlarging -of Nos. 1  and 2 furnaces will have been completed. The bulk of the ore will  come from the Mother Lode mine,  while probably from SOO to 1,000  tons daily will be received from the  Rawhide and other properties of  the New Dominion Copper Co.  J. E. McAllister stated to the Spokane Review last week, that the  company's properties will continue  to be run on the open sliop principle, a good per e'entage of the employees being union men; and,  that the company has only one  object in view, viz: the production  of copper at the lowest possible  cost consistent with modern conditions of living. With an in  creased smelting capacity at its  command, it should not be very  long before the B. C. Copper Co.  will begin to^pay dividends.  Western Float  A Sober King.  Messdames P. F. Roussa and A.  F. Thomas, and Miss Gladys McCreath in "one day last-week caught  forty-eight beautiful trout, near  Boundary Falls. It is not known  what bait the fair anglers employed  to induce such a large number of  the finny tribe to come ashore at  the end of a line.  Nearly all reforms cause someone a loss or hardship. During  the past year Ola Lofstad has been  enabled owing to his holdiug a  license for the Ladysmith hotel to  keep up active mining operations  upon the Argo tunnel. As his  license has been struck off he will  be forced, after the beginning of  the monlli, to suspend operations  upon what gives great promise of  being an immense mining proposition.  Last Sunday, the usual monthly  meeting of the Greenwood branch  of the Typographical Union was  held in the Pioneer office, Phoenix.  There were present Messrs T. A.' do nothing  It is not generally known that  King George is nearer a teatotaler  than any King who has ascended  the English throne. Those who  have lived in his house, dined at  his table and traveled with him  at home and abroad, say that for  years he has been one of the most  abstemious of men. He has never  claimed this as a virtue on his  part.  "My father," he would say,  "and all men of the older generation could take their wine and  never be the worse for it. As ��������� for  me, I simply cannot- If I were to  take a glass of champagne, it would  simply bowl me over, hence I'have  ,tr> stiok to my ginger ale���������not because I like it, but because it is the  only thingthat likes me."  Tlie'simple"truth of the matter  is that the King's digestion is very  bad. A very little thing upsets  it,- and wheu he suffers from in-  digesiion his lips become livid, his  nose reddens and his hands grow  cold. These symptoms, which are  very familiar in certain forms of  indigestion, have led unthinking  persons to imagine that the King  was suffering from intoxication,  when in reality he had never  touched either wine or spirits.  It is stated by those who know  the King well that it is nearly two  years since he touched a drop of  alcohol.  All the world may love a lover  except the particular object of a  fellow's affections.  All the good things do not come  in one~paekage.       "~  The man who really knows himself is never a bore.  You are less than nothing if you  A Premature Stampedo.  An enormous stampede is now  in progress to the supposed rich  placer ground in the Iditarod district, Alaska. From reports received from tho north the stampede  does not seem to be justified.  Bill Baily, of Alder Creek, has received the following��������� leter from  Martin Moran:���������  Otter Creek, March 24.  "Friend Bill.���������This camp looked  pretty uncertain until a month ago,  that is my only excuse for not  writing to you before this. It looks  now, that it is going to be a small  camp.  "Pay is located on Otter for four  claims up aud down the creek and  two claims wide, and 1 above Tom  DeCamp has pay on the second  tier. The creek has been well  prospected abovo and below them  four claims and nothing found.  .Glen'gulch comes in on 1. above  left limit. * It .'has pay for about  fchfee claims. Black creek comes  iu at 1 below left limit, they got  good pay on the rim, but can't get  down to bedrock owing to water.  "Flat creek comes in about two  miles below discovery, left limit.  It ia tho banner creek so far. It  has three miles of pay, some of it  very good. Jack Bolton has a lay  there. His partner sold out to  Tom Doggett for $2,500.  "Willow runs into Iditarod  above Otter,. about 3,000 feet of pay  on the benches a week ago. That  is all that has been found up-to-  date."  ii  CASEY   AT   THE   BAT."  PHINNEL THAYER.  When a doctor wants his patient  not to drink champagne he probably wants to bo sure of getting his  bill.  The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Mudville nine that dny;  The score stood four to two with an inning more to play.  And then when Cooney died at first and Barrows did the same,  A sickly silence fell upon thc patrons of thc game.  A straggling few got up to go in deep despair.   The rest  Clung to the hope that springs eternal in thc human breast;  They thought that if only Casey could get a whack at that���������  We'd put up even money now, with Casey at thc hat.  Hut I'lynn proceeded Casey, as did also Jimmy Hlnkc,  And thc former was a lulu and the latter was a cake;  So upon the stricken multitude grim rnelancholly sat,  For there seemed but little chance of Casey's getting to the bat.  But Fh-iin let drive n single to the wonderment of all,  And Blake, thc much despis-ed, tore the cover off the ball;  And when the dust had lifted and men saw what had occurred.  There wus Jiiiuny safe at second, and Flynii a'liiigging third.  Then from 5,000 throats and more there rose a lusty yell;  It rumbled through the valley, il rattled in tlie dell;  It knocked up on the mountain and recoiled upon the flat,-  For Casey, mighty Casey was advancing; to the bat. .  Tliere was ease in Casey's .manner as he stepped into his place,  Tliere was pride in Casey's bearing and a smile on Casey's face,  And when responding to their cheers, he lightly doffed his hat,  No stranger iu the crowd could doubt 'twas Casey at the bat.  Ten thousand eyes were on him as he rubbed his hands with dirt;  ���������Five thousand tongues applauded when he wiped them on his shirt,  Then when the writhing pitcher ground the ball into his hip,  Defiance gleamed in Casey's eye, a sneer curled Casey's lip.  And now the leather-covered sphere came hurtling through the air,  And Casey stood a-wati-hing it in haughty grandeur there.  Close by the sturdy batsman the ball unheeded sped���������  "That ain't my style," said Casey.   "Strike one !" the umpire said.  Ifrom the benches black with people, tliere went up a muffled roar,'  Like the beating of the storm-wnves on a stern and distant shore.  "Kill him !   Kill the umpire!"   shouted someone oil the stand;  And it's likely they'd hnve killed him hud not Casey raised his hand.  With 11 smile of Christian charity great Casey's visage shone;  He stilled the rising tumult, he bade thc game go on;  He signalled to the pitcher, and once more the spheroid flew; ���������  But Casey still ignored it, and the umpire said, "Strike two!"  "Fraud!" cried the maddened thousands, and echo answered fraud;  But one scornful look from Casey and the multitude was awed.  They saw his face grow cold and'stern, they saw his muscles strain,  And they knew that Casey wouldn't let that ball go by again.  The sneer is gone from Casey's lips, his teeth are clenched iu hate;  He pounds with cruel violence his bat upon the plate.  Ancl now the pitcher holds the ball, and now he lets it go.  And now thc air is shattered with the force of Casey's blow.  , Cranbrook will build a city hall,  Prince Rupert now has 5,000  people.  ; Revelstoke is overrun with dandelions.  - Mopquitoes are plentiful in  Qnilihena.

Protection and Labor.  - A commission, of enquiry  that  recently investigated the conditions  under which employees labor iu  Bethlehem, Pa., steel works, found  2,300 men working seven days a  week and twelve hours a day for  twelve and one-half cents per hour.  In American cotton mills, according to an official census return, the  average pay for men is $7.71 'per  week. In American woollen mills  the average wage is $393 per year^  Iu no other line of manufacturing in the States has protection  been carried further than in cotton,  steel and .woollen goods. In cotton  the duty on imported' fabrics runs  up to fifty per cent. In wool it  runs up to ninety. Tho high scale  of protection allowed has made  enormous profits possible, but  these profits have gone, not to enrich the workers, not to give theui  a decent living even, but to create  a class of millionaires without a  parallel in numbers or the extent  of possessions in the history of the  wurld.

Right to a second, when rhe tive minutes were up,  Mrs Dolby clinked down the lump in  her throat to say:  "And yon never snid a word to me  when you came houip.

"The best-educated people in the  oountry at present are tin; Eskimo."  says Dr. W. T. Grenfell, in his new  book, "Labrador," recently published  by Messrs. Macuiilan.  It is u startling and mortifying sentence, for ulong that rugged coast, the  scene of Dr. Grciifell's self-sftei'ificing  labors as a medical missionary,.there  is a considerable, if temporary population of whites.  And many of the visiting white  : fishermen, chiefly Americans, do not  set a good example to tbe people ol,  the land. They are n ienerous, open-  handed crowd of men," but "they go  fishing and working ' on Sundays  among our people, who, though poor-  er and far more needy of material  wealth, are wise enough to know that  life does not consist in the abundance  of things man possesses.    /  "Almost, without exception, the fts-  kimo can read and write. Many can  ,p!ay musical instruments, share in  part-singing, and are well able to  keep accounts, and know the value of  things. ,.  "[ have known an Eskimo culled in  to rend and to write a letb-'r for a  Newfoundland fisherman; and 1 have  had more than once to ask one lo  help me by playing our own harmonium for us at a .service, because not  one of a large audience could do so.  "I have heard more thnri one Eskimo stand up and deliver an excellent  impromptu speech. Our white population is still very largely illiterate,  though some headway has been made  ol late years.  "There are practically no alcoholic  liquors sold in Labrador; not a  licensed house exists. If liquor is;  sold at all, it is in very small quantities, and clandestinely, in what we  know as 'she-been.'  "Thousands of our fishermen are  absolute abstainers on principle, and  a very strong anti-liquor sentiment  prevails almost universally. Thc results are obvious in the fact that wc-  liave^ uot one policeman stutioned  along the whole coast; not one among  twenty-five thousand people.  "We have no penitentiary, and  there has not been, to my knowledge,  a conviction for drunkenness. During sixteen years I have, personally,  not seen one fisherman drunk."  Dr. Grenfell's chapter on thc Labrador missions contains striking tributes to the work of the Moravian  brethren. At Okkak, where they have  a small hospital, the Eskimo at first  would not subject themselves to the  necessary hospital regulations.  "We carried thither   the   first   patients in our little hospital steamer,  ft  was a  new experience to see   an  Eskimo trying lo accommodate   himself   to a   b"d.    The warmth   of' the j  ward was objectionable; the addition- j  al heat of the b-'dclothes was intoler- |  able.   Covering of any kind they had ;  long disposed of, and even then they j  were   p?rspiring  and   panting. '  1  "Jn a terrible fatal epidemic of  typhoid I had tried to persuade some  of my patients to remain in their  tents when very feverish. In one case  I had endeavored to enforce my ruling by removing the patient's garments Such a trifling 'impediment'  had not daunted him. Why stay under cover when you are hot? Next  morning when I returned, I found  him stark naked, huddled up in the  cold, waiting for the doctor and the  ravished clothes. He eventually recovered, in spite of me."  Of the famous Labrador dogs, Dr.  Grenfell hints at some gruesome  stories. "They are, of course, flesh-  eaters, and, by nature, purely carnivorous. During my years in Labrador  they have killed two children and one  man, and eaten another. In the case  of the second man, the evidence went  to show that he was not killed by the  dogs, though his body was devoured  by them. Only his bones were discovered in the snow; but as his dogs  returned in' good condition after a  fortnight's absence, all of them were  shot.  "Like the dogs who will oven eat  their masters' whips when hungry,  the cod off the Labrador coast have  marvellous digestive powers. I have  myself taken three small cod and  twenty-seven caplin from the stomach  of one postprandial fish, and seen an  excellent gold ring taken from another.  "A book in three volumes was  taken from the stomach of a codfish  off Lynn, England, arid presented to  the vice-chancellor of Cambridge University. Scissors and oilcans testify  to the catholicity of the cod's appetite."  Doomed fo Suffering  RESCUED BY "FRUIT-A-TIVES"  PEERESSES AND THEIR HEIRS.  CHARLES BARRETT. Esa.

AND ERUPTION  In the Spring Most People  Need a Tonic Mediciner  Many   Notable   Englishwomen   Hold  Titles In Their Own,Right.  While so many women are agitating  for their "rights" it is of interest to  know that a great many-of the gentler  ; sex hold exalted positions in their  own right in England, and do not derive their titles from their husbands.  At present there are a number of peeresses in their own right���������sixteen to be  exact, the one whoso peerage is of  the greatest antiquity being Lady de  lios whose barony���������the premier barony of England���������was created by Simon do Montfort when, after the battle of Lewes he summoned Robert de  Eos by writ in the King's name, to  Parliament. -  Lady de Ros was the only child of  the late Lord de Eos, who died rather  more than two years ago.- Hor husband is a brother, of Lord Dartrey,  and she has three daughters ��������� the  Hon. Mrs. Ross, the Hon. Maude  Dawson and the Hon. Mrs. Wade  Palmer. Having no brother, these ladies arc co-heiresses to their mother's  barony, for it is a peculiarity of English baronies by writ that primogeniture among females is ignored, All  daughters are equal co-heiresses, and  not one of them can obtain the title  until she becomes the sole heiress.  Mut this is not all. Mrs. Ross has  two'sons, and Mrs. Wade Palmer has  two daughters and the barony may remain iu abeyance until thc descendants of thc original co-heiresses have  dwindled down to one person. Because of this peerages have sometimes  remained in abeyance for centuries.  However, the King has a prerogative.  Ue can at any time he chooses confer the dignity on any one of the coheirs.  Two peeresses are minors. Lady  Beaumont and Lady Clifton of Leigh-  ton Uromswold. The first Baron Beaumont was the grandson of John de  Uridine, who held thc glorious dignity of King of Jerusalem.' After being in abeyance for more than 300  years' the barony fell in 1840 to a  "Yorkshire Roman Catholic gentleman,  Miles Thomas Stapleton of Carlton,  His son and successor married \  daughter of thc late Sir Charles Tempest and when he died, fourteen years  ago, he left a little girl, who was  scarcely more than a year old. Less  than three weeks later another girl  was born. The barony was called out  of abeyance in favor of the elder child  before she was two years old.  But Lady Clifton is the baby among  peeresses in- their own right. She was  born at the beginning of 1900, and before she was twelve months old her  father's death made her a peeress. The  heir presumptive is her uncle, Lord  Darnley.  On the death of the late Lord Lovelace, three years ago, his only child,  the great-granddaughter of Byron, became Baroness Wentworth in her own  right. This barony has been held "by  baronesses more often than any other.  First conferred on Sir Thomas Wentworth, Chamberlain to Edward VI.  and a connection of the family of the  same name settled at Wentworth  Woodhouse, near Sheffield, and now  represented by Lord. Fitzwilliam, it  passed in course of time to Henrietta,  the only child of the fifth baron, when  she was a child of ten. ,  Born   during   the   Commonwealth, |  she fell  a  victim  to the glances of [  the Duke of Monmouth, her rents, firer ;  jewels 'and her  credit were lovingly 1  given to forward his plots for usurping ,the���������throne.   From_Henrietta, thex  barony passed to"an'aunt." who was  succeeded by her granddaughter.

The French Parliament was not always famous for the excitement and  turmoils of its debates. In tlie old  monarchial days, before tlie revolution,-the sessions of the old Parliament were exceedingly dull and prosy  affairs. One day.it is related, a noble  count was trying to make a speech,  and a very prosy speech it was, while  all the other members were either  chatting or resting. Presently the  president of the body rapped slightly  with his baton.  "If those gentlemen who are talking to each other," said he, "would  kindly make no more noise than thosej  gentlemen who are snoring it would,  be much'-apprcciated by those gentlemen who, are trying to listen."

The meteoric career of Le Devoir,  Mr. Bourassa's new Wont real daily,  has been interrupted by the departure  from hii staff of his two chief lieutenants, Mr. Oliver Asselin and Mr. Jules  Fournier, men who The Montreal Hqr-  ald says, attracted libel suits as naturally as water attracts, ducks.  "Asselin," says The Herald, "claims  to have been reared"below* Quebec  and to have come to Montreal, where  he began on The Herald in 1899,, by  way of New England. Materially,  there are circumstantial proofs of the  claim, but in essence he hails straight  from one of Dumas'- novels of the  Fronde. He is a disturber of the  peace of people in high places, because he is a person of enthusiasms'  who is quite careless of consequences.  He never measures his likes or dislikes. He has always' a cause to fight  for, nnd in fighting he puts his own  convenience last. Like our sriost distinguished lacrosse and hockey players, he excels in breaking the rules  and iu being penalized for it. Hi\-  worst break was when he struck a  Quebec Minister on the floor of the  Legislature; that and other things  have taken him behind pris.on wall.-  and into the dock. On the other  hand, a very successful and very  honorable Montreal public man, in  whoso interest Asselin' bad worked  like a Trojan for weeks together,  after many unencouraged hints about  remuneration, mailed him a check for  a tidy sum. It came back by the  next mail, with the' comment that  when he worked for his friends he  worked for friendship. When he Iuh  been really pressed for money tlie fact  has been indicated by public advertisement of the tle-iire to sell soma  valuable books.  "Health he has always treated as  quite secondary. Those whom he has  so relentlessly pursued say be-is a  neurasthenic; in the middle of one of  his hardest battles he fell at his work  the, victim of a painful ailment, fo'm  which, by dint of not giving in to it,  he soon alter recovered. His moods  inter change between r-iirdonic .bitterness, which he indulges when some  unworthy act has excited hi? reprobation, and light-hearted banter, that  bubbles up when someone has invited  contempt. At St. Henri,-during tho  campaign on the Board of Control  referendum, he had the hall laughing for near an hour as lie portrayed  the postures in which the aldermen  had been exposed by Judge Cannon,  and, then, suddenly, instantly, his  thin face lit up by a flash of passion,  sent a shiver over the whole audience  with a fiery aside about the long procession of little white coffins in the  summer months.

Sir John Batty Tuke, the eminent  mental specialist, who does not intend to seek re-elect.'on for the University of St. Andrew's and Edin-  'burgh, lntely had a strange experience. In the course of some recent  repairs at his private nsylum near  Kdinbuigh, the workmen were strictly enjoined not to converse with any  of the patients. Ona morning Sir  John appeared on the scene and addressed a casual query to a painter.  This merely elicited a stony stare.  When the qivation was repeated thc  workman exclaimed: "wa'wi ye.' ye  delecrioiiR donvil, I canna be bothered wi' ye." Then, as if reflecting that  this remonstrance was too crushing,  tone, "Rut I'm  same.'  is the direct and inevitable result  of irregular or constipated bowels  and clogged up kidneys and skin.

Two Canadian artists who are gradually winning fame for themselves in  Furope nre Frank Milton Arminnton  and his wife, Caroline Helena Arm-  ington. They are both painters and  etchers, and their etchings have attracted special attention'. A number  of typical specimens of their work  have' been accepted by both the British and South Kensington Museums.  This speaks volumes for their work.  As all the world knows, it is no easy  matter, nothing is accepted by either  of these institutions unless it is beyond reproach and above the ordinary  in conception.  Mr. Armington has nlso had the  honor of being made a member of the  Royal Society of Painters-Etchers and  Kngravers of England. His work is  also to be seen in the Alto Pinokotbek  Museum of Munich, and in the Con-  gre.xsional Library of Washington.  Both Mr. and Mrs. Arniington nre  earnest workers, aud are rapidly becoming known as: such. They are  both charming personalities, and their  -.tudio is an ideal one. Though a number of discerning Canadians have .acquired specimens of their work, it ia.  a singular fact that etchings are not  classified as works of art, and are  compelled to pay only on admission to  Canada:  is the word to remember  when you seed a remedy  4> m  I VETERAN SCRIP I  FARM LOANS  Empire  First.

Through the sharp work of Dr.  Spencer, the people of this province  will soon be annoyed with that  rank old failure from the effete  east, commonly known as the  Scott Act. Its adoption in this  fair western province will increase  strife, - trouble, dissension, blind  pigs,  drug stores and boot  legs.  The Act provides that no alcoholic beverage of any kind can be  sold in a Scott Act district except  on a medical certificate, or for  sacramental purposes. ��������� No brewery  or distillery situated in a Scott Act  district can sell for local consumption, the product must be shipped  out, and can only be consigned to  a district in which the Scott Act is  not in operation. No merchant,  trader or wholesaler, even though  already e-tablished in a Scott Act  district, can sell for local consumption except for medical purposes.  On the other hand tliere is nothing  to prevent the unlimited importation of liquor from the outside po  long as it is purchased and paid  for on the outside. The, administration of the Act and its penalties  are so drastic as to be unfair and  un-English. Unlimited power is=  placed in the hands of local magistrates against whose decision,' if  they are of the status of a stipmi-  dary, there is no appeal. An  amendment has recently been incorporated which throws the onu?  on an accused, who must prove his  innocencp, instead of ou the accuser to prove his'guilt. The penalty for a first offence is SoO or a  month's imprisonment, for -a "sec -  ond offence SI00 or two months,  aud for a third and every subsequent .offence imprisonment for  four months without the option of  a fine. The most unrestricted  authority is given to search premises, even including private houses,  to discover liquor where it is supposed to be kept or used in violation of the Act.

Patrons of an hotel dining room  stopped eating while a piping hot  boiled potato of extraordinary size  svas carried across the room and  set before a man seated at a center  table.  "Brought it himself, all the way  from Oklahoma," said the manager. "He brought enough to last  him all the time he is here. He  keeps them in his own room and  sends ono down just in time to  havo it cooked for dinner. Yes,  they are good potatoes but that  isn't why he brought a sackful up  from Oklahoma. He is in the  potato business, and he eats his  own potatoes as an advertisement.  A potato of that size carried across  tho room held up high at arm's-  length is going to attract atteution  anywhere. It makes folks ask  questions, and pretty soon tlie  reputation of those potatoes is  made.  "Tliere are other fellows as  enterprising as this Oklahoma chap.

An animal whose instinct teaches  it to give something in  return  for  that which nature has taught it to  steal should  be capable of a business education, obrerves the Phila  delphia    North     American.      A  curious statement is made about  the "trading" rat, which is one of  the unique and interesting animals  met with in the Rocky Mountains.  , Miners   of   the   region   declare  that,   although   these   rats   enter  houses,   camps  and   mines,    and  take things that do not belong to  them, they never take an article  without leaving something in  its  place.   They conduct a trade, and  hence their name.  They enter dwellings at night  and steal anything they can iind,  carrying away spoons, knives and  forks, bub invariably leaving a  chip, stick, or stone in place of  each article taken away.

The week before illiction he had his pitcher iu  the   funny   papers.
