The lest was  left to the Lord, the judge and the  cayuse. Sometimes tho judge arrived a few hours early, and a  little informally, and at others a  few hours late, but the judge and  the cay use always arrived at the  same time. Fifteen years ago  county court sessions were less formal in the Boundary than they aro  today. There were no lawyer?,  no gowns and very Sew boiled  shirts. The first court at Eholt's  ranch, now Midwa}-, was one that  will never he forgotten by the old-  timers. The judge was coming  through from Vernon to hold court  at Osoyoos and then on to Midway.  A number of cases had been entered, many of them by common  consent, to make the court a success and to test thc judge's legal  knowledge. All the prospectors  and other residents of the district  were present ou court day, and  there was every prospect of a very  successful session, but, unfortunately, the judge was late. There  was a saloon in town, time wore  on aud no judge. Sorao one had  an inspiration, and suggested.  Others suggested. Some one had  a grudge, and hit. Others hit.

This is  rich enough to ship at a good profit  and several carloads will be taken  out and shipped as fast as the ore  can be stoped.  A number of public school pupils  are writing on the entrance examination in tho public school this  week. Nearly all tho schools in  the district aro represented, there  being 9 pupils from Phoenix, 5  from Greenwood, 5 from Midway,  2 from Eholt, 1 from Deadwood,  and 1 from Ingram mountain.

They are forming a company to work tho Buster mineral  claim on Wallaco mountain. The  Buster is an adjoining claim to the  Rambler, and has shown up well  with tho development done, having  a very rich lead of silver lend oro,  from IS to 2-1 inches in width  at about 12 feet depth. It will require about $5,000 to develop the  claim to a shipping stage.  Dan Gunn was over from Ross-  laiu^ this week attending court.  Dan'was chief ot police in Phoenix  last year. While wearing the king's  badge and fulfilling his duties as  a peace officer Dan mingled with a  bunch of Vikings. The Viks were  too numerous.

To account for the small participation of English capital in Canadian mining, Mr. Frecheville  cites tho following reasons: First,  tho results obtained bj' enterprises  launched in England to work mines  in Canada, have not. as a rule,  bcLii encouraging. Secondly,' th*1  distance from the Canadian and  American centers of capital to'the  Ctnadiau mines is so much less  than the distance from England,  that the enterprising and alert G i-  nadian and American g"ts there  before the man from over the  water has oven a look in.  It would have brought out the  truth more fully had Mr. Frecheville added that "the enterprising  and alert Canadian or American"  is not to be blamed for the undoubted lack of success on the part  of English-investors. English investments have been unsuccessful  mainljr because they have been  blunderingly conducted. Instance  after instance has occurred where  capitalists from the mother land  hive proved easy victims for promoters discredited in Canada.  Time and again good British  guineas have been squandered by  a wasteful aud incompetent mau-  agemeut. Neither Canada nor Canadians can be blamed for this.  The English investor needs, above  all else, experience and responsible  tniuing engineers to guidn him ;  men, indeed, of Mr. Frecheviile's  class.  "As the matter newsstands,"  concludes Mr. Ft-pchevillfi, "the  best procedure for English capitalists who contemplate interesting  themselves in mines in C.-tuad-i,  would seem to .be to have a resident agent here, who would keep  them in touch with what is going  on. otherwise I am afraid that history will repeat itself, and what is  brought over to London will bo by  no means the pick of the basket."  Continuing he recomman U that  only prospects -that are at least  promisiugly developed, or mines  already proved payable, be brought  to the attention of London capitalists. ���������Canadian Mining Journal.

If the country had more like them  the mineral resources of the country would become better known,  and the development work that attracts the [attention of capital  would be in a more advanced state.  J. Livingston has a property  known as the Rambler, on the  northwestern extension of the Silver Cup mineral belt and located  at a point a mile and a half above  Five mile, where he has put in all  last winter developing his property  and had formerly done a lot of  work there. Livingston is also one  of the owners of the Copper King  group, a very promising property  about live miles from Trout Lake  City, and located on the divide between Trout and Glacier creeks.  'Lew Thompson has now worked  for a long time on the development  of thc Baltimore and Brooklyn, a  northwesterly extension of thc  Nettie L mineral zone, The Baltimore and Brooklyn are right on  the North Fork trail, a niilo above  Ferguson, so that tho property is  exceptionally conveniently located  if it should turn out a niino. A  tunnel has been driven .'500 feet.  Good indications are obtained as  the work proceeds and thero are  outcrops which justify tho expectation that a shoot of ore will be  found hero. S. A. D.moy is interested in the property.  Another stand-by of the Lardeau  and a man who believes in developing his own property a3 fast as  possibte, is Dave, Morgan, who,  with W. A. Foote of Revelstoke,  is one of tho principal owners of  tho Surprise property on tho North  Fork. Dave has been working  hard this winter on a promising  vein on tho north side of the Lardeau river, near the bridge on the  North Fork. The claim is known  as the Security. He has run sixty  feet of a tunnel all 'alone, and has  one wall, bub has hot yet located  tho other, tho ore body having apparently boon eroded by the action  of the river. The vein on which  tho work ia being done is up  against a serpentine dyke, show  ing nickeliferous pyrihulilo. Tni.s  vein has been traced to tho Broadview. ���������Revolstoke Observer.

Although there is much of what  is commenly known as luck in the  discover}- of new veins and oro  bodies,  there is also   much   that  We  have heard of men bc-  "   but  isn't.  ing  "kicked   iuto   million  when  counted  up on   the fingers  their number is found to be small.  By far the larger part of tho ore  discoveries that have been made  were the direct results of persistent  and systematic search by meu who  had at lea-t some knowledge of the  manner of occurrence of thc ores  being sought. Tho greater knowledge that the pmspeetor possesses  in this direction the better are his  chances of making important discoveries.  .The plainest surface indications  of the possible presence of important ore bodies may, to the uninformed, mean nothing. The "iron  cap" is looked for in searching for  copper ores, not that iron oxide  bears any resemblance to copper,  but from tho knowledge that it is  the surface residue of oxidized and  leached out chalcopyrite or double  sulphide of copper and iron. One  who is unacquainted with this important, yet simple fact, might  camp on a fortuno yet grumble at  the poor success of his search. The  well-informed prospector would  recognizo it at a glance and act  accordingly.  It is no uncommon thing to read  of "rich discoveries" in regions  that havo been prospected ovor for  years with little or no success because the 'prospectors failed to  recognize tlie signs which later  comers were quick to see and appraise at their real worth. Tho  chances of tho prospector who informs himself on the principles of  the formation and occurrence of  ore deposits aro iinniosurably  greater than of tho practical nun  who regards theoretical knowledge  as worthier, says the Mining  World.  Although every new mining region is overrun with pro.speetoiy,  many a potential mine has gone  uiulfxcovcrod and is still'waiting  fur the man to come along who  will bo ablo to recognize it. Because ninety-nine prospectors have  been ovor tho ground is no reason  that the one-hundredth is wasting  his time.

The heirs of the  late Edward Noyes Westcott. received  no less than. $75,000 as the extraordinary reward for his writing of  "David Harum." But history as well  as fiction has proved not a little profitable.  A portion of Macaulay's "History,'  for example, was crowned with a  check for $100,000. The great Gibbon's "Decline and Fall of the Ro-  man Empire" was remunerated by  $50,000, a sum which compensated  more than one novel of Sir Walter  Scott. But a correspondent of The  Westminster reminds us that for his  po.-ilhunious "Memoirs" Chateaubriand , received not only $50,000 in  cash, but an annuity of $2,400 for  himself and his wife as well. The  author of "Bene" lived on for twelve  years, so that he received for the book  rights of his posthumous < work $78,-  000. In addition to this the serial  rights brought in $15,000, making a  grand total of $94,000 received in his  lifetime. In inequality of rewards,  however, is often quite as striking as  the amounts. Tennyson's works wore  reaping royalties of $25,000 a year,  while Browning received less than  $1,000. Messrs. Smith, Elder & Co.  would print seven hundred and fifty  copies of a new poem by Browning,  and would sell only half of these during the first year. The shilling selection from the poems did much to  bring a public to this great poet.  When Ruskin had gone through his  father's large fortune Mr. Smith  offered him the sum of $10,000 for his  copyrights.' The .offer was refused,  and Ruskin, through the medium of  Mr. George Allen, became his own  publisher, and was soon in receipt of  more than $25,000 a year from the  sale of new editions of his works.

GRATEFUL WOMAN  Tells, of the Remarkable Cure Dr. Williams  Pink Pills Wrought in Her Case- ���������  - Had Undergone Four Operations Without Help  When women approach that critical  period in their lives known as the  turn of life, they do so with a feeling of apprehension and uncertainty  for in the manner in which they pass  . that crisis determines the. health of  . their after life. During this most  important time in the life of a  woman, her whole aim 'should be to  build up and strengthen, her system  to meet the unusual demands upon  it. Devotion -to family should not  lead to neglect of self. The hard  work and worries of household carcv  should be avoided as far as possible  But whether she is able to do this or  ��������� not, no woman should" fail to take  the tonic treatment offered-by Dr  Williams' Pink Pills, which will  build -up her blood and fortify her  whole system, enabling her to pass  this critical period with safety. We  give the following strong proof of  what, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are  constantly doing for suffering women.  Mrs. Margaret .Wood, Southfiold  N. B., says:���������"Some years ago I became a victim to the troubles that  afflict so many of my sex, in the very  worst form. The doctor in chargi-  neither through medicine nor local  treatment gave me any help, and he  decided that I must undergo an operation if I was to have any relief  During the next two years I underwent four successive operations. During this time I had the attention of  some of the best physicians. From  each operation 1 received some benefit, but only of short duration, and  then I drifted back into tlie same  wretched condition as before. Dur  ing all this time I was taking medicine to build up my system, but with  no avail. 1 was reduced to a mere  tkeleton; my nerves were utterly  broken down. My blood was of a  light yellowish color, and I was so  far-gone that I took spells in which  my lips, fingers and tongue would  seem paralyzed. I cannot begin to  express what I suffered and went  through in those two years. I was  completely discouraged and thought  I could not live long. Then on the  urgent advice of friends I began to  i, take -Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and  after some weeks perceived a change  for the better. I continued to take  the pills for several months, gradually growing stronger and suffering  less,- and in the end found myself  once more a well woman and enjoying the blessing of such good health,  as  I  had  not known  for  years  fwo Sleighs and a Maiden.

Yours gratefully,  MRS. C D. PRINCE  Nauwigewauk, Oct. 21st.  Inconsiderate  The farmer had attended the funerals of his neighbor's wives without protest. When his friend wa3 bereaved a third time he positively refused the invitation. His wife pleaded  with him in vain.  "Not a step will I go," he explained  "How would I feel accepting his invitations three time and me without no  way of returning his civilities?"  Joel Herrlck drove along disconao-  lately In tlie moonlight, flicking his  whip about Day .Charley's enrs. Behind the yarn muffler bis face worcS  au expression of disappointment and  wounded pride, and it was evident  that the five milP3 of fine sleighing before him on this keen, beautiful night  held no charms.." Disconsolate he looked and disconsolate he felt, for had he  not just been scorned by the lady ot  his heart?  Little had he thought when he drove  Susannah Peters out to Johnson's golden wedding that she would desert him  for his bitterest rival, Ed Sparks, and  yet���������  Joel had danced often with the pretty, golden haired Susaunah. She, happily conscious of her new blue ribbons-  and pink cheeks, had beamed upon  him, dancing his heart quite out of  him aud himself Into the brave resolve  to speak of his love on the homeward  drive, for, although Joel had "kept  company" with Susanuah for six  months, be had always lacked the  courage to "ask her", point blank.  Now, Ed Sparks, on the other hand,  lacked not the courage, but rather had  pressed his suit, even when Susannah  had clearly snubbed 'him. Perhaps it  was done only to nettle the hesitating  Joel; perhaps Susannah was really Impressed by Ed's brand new suit of  store clothes, scarlet tie and glittering  cuff buttons" and studs. At any rate,  when the dancing was done and the  big dining room was thrown open It  was Ed Sparks -who stepped quickly  forward aud "handed" Susannah to  the delectable fieast, and It was Ed  Sparks who filled her glass with Aunt  Marcy Johnson's best blackberry wine  when the health of host and hostess  was drunk. And all the while Joel  Herriek, his heart eaten out with jealousy, tried to look gay as he served  another and less favored damsel.  After supper goodbys were said, the  stone bottles were filled with hot water in anticipation of long rides  through the cold night, the women  bundled each other up In tippet and  shawl, while the men harnessed the  horses. To be sure, Joel had but one  horse to harness, yet the crafty Ed  managed to reach the house door first  with his prancing young horses and a  new, fancy sleigh. - Susannah gave one  swift glance from Ed's dashlug turnout to staid Bay Charley and the old  fashioned cutter. Vaguely she heard a  chorus of feminine "oh's" and "ah's,"  and Joel's fate was sealed. She sprang  into Ed's sleigh, the envy of every  other girl on the great porch.  All this furnished anything but  pleasant thoughts for Joel as he drove  home alone, and'wqeu he realized that  at this moment Ed's arm might be  encircling the slender waist of Susannah he fairly groaned In spirit Perhaps the bold fellow might even dare  to kiss her. Joel grasped his whip  tightly, and Bay Charley sprang forward in surprise.  Two miles had been covered, and he  reached a point where the road wouud  through a patch of woodland. The  trees stood gaunt, strange and black  against the dazzling snow. Now and  then a branch snapped with the cold,  sounding like the report of a pistol on  tho still moonlight. Joel commenced  to whistle from sheer loneliness. Then  suddenly the sound died on his lips.  In astonishment he saw a woman  walking toward him. Nearer and nearer they came together. More and more  familiar became the outlines of that  feminine figure. As he slowed up it  shrank back against.a tree.  "Why, Susannah!"  "Oh, Joel, I'm so glad It's you!".  There were tears in her voice. But  Joel, remembered the slights, the humiliation, recently put upon him and  hardened his heart and his voice.  "Well, Miss Peters, if you are goin'  home alone I shall be pleased to take  you under my care." ���������  His tone was not inviting, but the  shivering Susannah quickly climbed to  his side. Joel touched up Bay Charley,  but for some time remained silent.  Now and then he glanced at the little  figure crouched at his side, shaking  with sobs and cold together. Joel's  heart "<mroacbed him, and he finally  remarried:  "Seems to me you ain't actio' right  tonight First you take up with n no  account sort of fellow like Ed Sparks;  then you go walkin' alone at this time  of night Whore's Ed. an' what does  he mean leaviu' you all alone like  this? If he ain't treated you right I'll  take him out an' horsewhip him."  Susannah laid her baud appealingly  on Joel's arm.  "I've been mean to you, Joel, but���������  but this aiu't Ed's fault I���������I���������fell  out!" _.    ���������  Joel snorted Incredulously.  "Yes, I did, too, Joel.

Her recital came to a sudden and  undignified end as she giggled at the  recollection of her admirer's plight  She tried to smother the giggle In the  sleeve of Joel's great rough cont and  Chen continued:  "There hasn't been a soul along until  you came. I was scart to death. Everything was so white on' still, an' la  the woods the moon was lookln' at me  through the dark brunches of tbe trees  for all the world like u queer face. I-  I don't believe I could have stood It  much longer."  By this time Joel was chuckling over  his rival's predicament, and Susannah  sat up iu sudden dismay.  "But you won't tell anybody, will  v.

Careening,  swaying, lie drew near IlulHesburg at  a racing gait,'"utterly unconscious that  Susannah was no longer clinging to  the seat before which he still stood,  tugging at the reins.

Iu tho meantime Ed had reached tbe  center of the.town, and his horses, exhausted and steaming, finally responded to the rein. With a feeling of intense relief Ed turned to his companion.

He remembered with horror that sho  had not spoken since the horses Grst  began their mad run. What if she had  been back there in the woods all this  time, frozen, perhaps attacked by  tramps?

Miss Peters, but if you aren't  hurt it don't matter so much, and 1  hope you'll let me see you safe home."  Susannah choked back a persistent  giggle and clung to Joel's arm.  "You see, Mr. Sparks���������Mr. Herriek���������  I mean Joel���������an' I���������we���������I'm just as  much obliged"���������  Joel took up her faltering explanation and made it clear.  "I don't mind tellln' you, Mr. Sparks,  that hereafter Susannah an' I'll do our  sleigbin* together for all time, but If  you want a recommendation to any  other girl Susannah she'll give it, an'  we won't mention this here little affair."  And Mr. Spnrks, with a dignified uplifting of his fur cap and a few unintelligible words.-whipped up his horses,  swung arouud lu the road and raced  back to town.  They did notiknow the use of tobacco  and would not eat bread, meat or even  sugar, although they readily tasted  anything given to them.

And the next moment Tommy was  being pursued by an angry sire with a  hard hair brush.  Athletic Brothers Are to Play Football  Match In England.  If,' as seems likely, we are about  to see a "boom" in athletic contests  between sets of seven brothers,, due  to the sensation that is practically  certain to be created by the forth-,  coming football match between the  seven brothers Williams, of Haverfordwest, and the seven brothers Randall, of Llanelly, it will merely be  a revival of an old custom dear to  our forefathers.  Ssven has always been regarded as  a lucky number, and in the old days,  when people were more superstitious  than thoy are now, near relatives who  could work together in sets of seven  always tried to do so, believing that  they'thereby secured some mysterious  advantage.  There were, for example, the seven  boxers of Beeston, all brothers,' and  all chimney-sweeps by trade, whom  the redoubtable Jem Mace met and  defeated one after another, as set  forth in full in his memoirs.  Then there were the seven Lees,  gypsies, who used to go about the  country with a boxing-cloth giving  exhibitions. According to their own  story, there was only three years difference between the ages of the  youngest and the eldest of the seven,  the explanation being that tho'batch  of brothers included three sets of  twins.  Their success was such that thev  soon had plenty of imitators, including tho famous Lancashire Wrestlimr  Septette, who for years took on allcomers. These wero undoubtedly the  sons of one mother, for they used to  exhibit their birth certificates outside their booth.  At one of their matches they were  opposed by n septette of Irish wrestlers, e������.ch of whom was said to be the  seventh son of a seventh son, a combination which is supposed to be enormously lucky, and is certainly extremely rare.. However, in this case  skill triumphed over luck, for the  Irishmen were easily beaten by the.  lads from Lancashire.  FIGHTING FOR A PEERAGE.  The Sins of the Son.  In Busreh, Persia, the bapd of native justice punishes the robber with  great severity, as may be inferred  from the following episode, the truth  of which is vouched for by a gentleman of position long resident in the  district. On a certain occasion a native of low class attacked this gentleman, seized the bridle of his horse  and demanded baksheesh. The rider  promptly delivered his assailant a  blow with his whip aud proceeded to  the head sheikh, to whom he reported  the matter. The sheikh undertook to  see that the miscreant should be suitably punished, and the traveler, continued his journey. On his return he  ngaln visited this dignitary* who, bowing low, assured the gentleman that  both the guilty man and his father had  been severely bastinadoed! The traveler ventured to remark that the father, at any rate, was Innocent and  asked why punishment had been meted  out to him. The reply was quickly  forthcoming, "Oh, we punished the  man for his wicked act and the father because be had not brought up  his son properly!" a rather startling  reversion of the order In which the  punishment for sin Is to he visited according to Scriptural ideas.  Willie was paying a visit, and he  found thc intervals between meals  longer than usual.  "I ain't going to ask for any cake,"  he remarked at last blandly.  "That's very nice of you, Willie,'  said his hostess.  "Because," he went on loudly, ignoring her remark, "in houses where  ladies is polite to little boys 1 don't  have to."  Willie got his cake.

Dublin's  Slums.  The strong remarks of the Recorder  of  Dublin  in  regard  to the terrible  slums which darken the Irish capital  have again drawn attention to what  is   undoubtedly   a  shocking  state  of  affairs.    Sir- Charles Cameron,  medical officer of health for the city, said  he considered that the main cause of  the extreme poverty was the lack of  employment owing to the absence of  large industries.   "Thirty-seven out of  every  hundred   families live   in   one  room,"  he  said,  'and  I think  their  case is worse than that of thc very  poor in any centre in England.   The  proportion of the  people  of  Dublin  who are very badly off in regard to  good clothes and fire is very large indeed.    Here is a typical case which  has been brought to my notice.   It is  that of a poor young Wiman five oi  six and twenty in an advanced state  of consumption.   Sho has four chil  dren, including a baby in arms whf  is also consumptive, and her husbani1  only earns eleven shilling a week ar  a  messenger.    All   they   live   on   i-  bread  and  tea.    There are  consider  ably  over  1,000   regular   beggars  ir  Dublin.  Most of the very poor live ir  tenement houses.    Much of the property is old and decayed.    It offer  gets so dilapidated as to be unfit foi  habitation. v   Wc  have  closed  about  3,000 such houses in the last twenty-  five years.   Some of the rooms arc let  as low as Is. a week, but the rents  vary from Is. to 2s.  It is strange how  few   bachelors   you   find   among  the  very poor. They marry'no matter hov.  poor they are and thus the ranks of  the poverty-stricken are swelled."  ?   A Youthful Robber.  Brought before the Preston (Eng.)  magistrates recently as not being _under" proper guardianship, a diminutive boy named Francis Glaze, eleven  years of age, was remanded for t>  week, after a remarkable account had  been given of his alleged proficiency  in tliiefs of a particular order. The  chief constable \ informed the court  that Glaze was the leader of a gang  of boy thieves who went about robbing letter and pillar-boxes in different parts of the town. On the previous Sunday alone the prisoner :ob  tained in this manner cheques, postal  orders, etc., to the value of ������460, and  he had given the postal authorities a  great amount of trouble. On another  occasion he obtained over ������60. Detective Woodacre stated that the boy  had a remarkably small hand and a  thin arm, which ho could thrust  through apertures in the boxes auo  so abstract the contents. The prisoner  hid the plunder in a cellar underneath his school find in crevices in  different parts of the town. Although  so young, he was absolutely beyond  controi, and frequented the company  of thieves.  Famous Claim to Earldom of. Berkeley Caused a Sensation.  The claim lo the Sackville barony,  which has excited so. much interest  recently, has many points in common  with the sensational claim to the  Earldom of Berkeley, which set every  tongue in' England wagging a century  and more ago. ��������� .'  That the fifth Earl of Berkeley had  taken to wife the pretty daughter'of  William Cole, a Gloucester butcher,  who became the mother of seven stalwart sons, was beyond all dispute;  but whether the marriage took placr?  before the birth of the eldest son, or  ten yedrs later, was a very different  matter, and round this point the battle waged fiercely. Of this earlier alleged marriage the only evidence wti1  an entry on a slip of paper attached  to a page of the Berkeley marriage  register. The clergyman in whose  handwriting the entry was said to be  was dead; so, too, was one of the witnesses, while the signature of the  second witness was in an assumed  name.  A marriage thus supported failed to  satisfy the House of Lords, who held  that it was not proven, and thevoarl-  dorn was awarded, not to the eldest  son of tlie union, but to the fifth son,  who was born after the later and properly-authenticated wedding; and  who, to his honor be is said, refused  to assume a title which he declared  belonged to his eldest brother.  But all claims to peerages are not  supported by even such slight evidence as a doubtful marriage-entry.  When a Mr. Cooke cast covetous eyes  on the Stafford barony in 1823 he  did not trouble himself about such  a small matter as making his claim  good. Possession, he knew, was "nine  points of the law," and, acting on this  maxim, he installed himself in Stafford Castle during the owner's absence, and refused to budge until he  was turned out "neck and crop."  Such a summary proceeding., however, did not disconcert him in the  least. He made a neighboring inn his  headquarters, served notices on the  tenants bidding them pay their rents  to him as their lord, and started a  carriage which flaunted the Stafford  arms in the face of the world; and  when at last he found himself in the  clutches of the law, charged with  fraud and impersonation, he had the  effrontery to claim his "privilege of  peerage!"  A less resolute man was the Birmingham tradesman ��������� who, some years  ago, sought to wear a coronet as' Earl  of Stirling. He succeeded in raising  $65,000 to prosecute his claim, giving  as security bonds for $250,000 on the  property which was soon to be his,  and appeared to have the earldom  within his clutch when, as ill-luck  would have.it, he was arrested on a  charge of forgery. The claimant,  however, seems to have been rather  the dupe than the villain of the play,  for he was acquitted.  Harold's Wish  Although there was no sort of toy  which could be bought which Harold  had not in his possession, he still had  his unsatisfied longings. ���������  "I know what I wish I was, mother," he said one day, when his own  big brother had gone away and the  little boy across the street was ill.  "Yes, dear?" said his mother. "Per-  hapsNyou can be it, Harold; mother  will help you.   Is't to play soldier?"  "No/"indeed!" said Harold, scornfully. "I just wish 1 was two little  dv^s, so I could play together."  A Begging Letter.

When  he left his Alma Mater he traveled  on the Continent for some months,  and then returned to Birmingham  with the intention of devotins himself seriously to politics. He had  been at home only a few days when  ho met his old nurse, who inquired  what vocation ho thought of pursuing.   "Oh." he said,  in  reply  Suffocated In Church.  An extraordinary incident occurred  at a Wesleyan Chapel in the viliage  of Peak Dale, near Buxton, England,  recently. The service had been in  progress slightly over half an hour,  and the preacher had just finished his  address to the children, when a boy  dropped insensible, and almost immediately aferwards two more children dropped to the floor. Adult  members of the congregation rushed  for water, and the place was soon in  a state of commotion and strange excitement. In all about ten children  and a young lady named Hadfield  were prostrated, and considerable difficulty was experienced in bringing  her and several of the children back  to consciousness. Many other members of the congregation were seized  with sickness, and were taken home.  The cause of the sickness seems to  have been the fumes from the furnace of the heating apparatus and  thc absence of ventilation.  going in for polities!"

This boycotted concern is willing to put up a few-  dollars to waken things up, aud it  is supposed to be dead and in the  journalistic boneyard. How many  of the non-producing boycotters  will toe the mark and come through  with two bits apiece.  The man who works for nothing,  the merchant who sells below cost,  the contra dor who takes work below a living rate, is stealing the  bread out of his neighbor's mouth,  and a constant menace to every  man who pays a hundred cents on  the dollar. He is stealing from  the man who is doing a legitimate  business aud who is endeavoring  to build up the community in  which he resides. Nickel men  never yet made a dollar town.  If employers would pay men in  responsible positions better salaries  there would be fewer downfalls.  The higher the position a young  man occupies the greater are his  obligations in the community, socially and otherwise. In other  words, people expect a young man  lo live up to his position, no matter what his salary may be. The  employer who pays ������G00 to a $1500  position is running a criminal  manufactory and should receive a  share of the punishment.

Let  him  continue  to hit the grit.    Ib is moro healthful for him lo  tramp all  over the  country than to  loaf  in one town,  and   better   for   the   town.     The  tramp is something that should he  distributed  all  over  the country.  He  is  the. bent possible object lesson to thrifty citizens on au insane  immigration  policy.    So   long   as  the government of (he  country allows  corporations  to   import 1 tlio  lowest class of Europeans and Asiatics   in   order  to  reduce, wages,  there will be tramps.    There never  has been a  time iu, the  history of  Canada when there was a necessity  for the importation of labor.    The  number of tramps   is   increasing  each  year,  still  tho importations  go on.    Take the employees of the  B.   C.   Copper  company, when  it  was in operation,   as  an  example.  Fully  one half of  them were unable to read or write  English.    In  this  wo are  not referring  to  the  Scandinavians,   who  have  no  superiors as mine or smelter workers,  and who  identify Ihemselvcs-with  every movement  tending  towards  the prosperity of  the  community  in which they reside.    The Crow's  Nest  Pass  Coal   company  is   another   example.     English   is   not  heard as frequently among the employees of that company as is some  some other language.    These   ignorant foreigner:,  obtain  work in  two   ways :    First,   by   taking   a  lower wage than   residents of the  country ; and,   secondly,   by  paying   a   portion    of    their    wages  monthly to unscrupulous foremen.  The greed of employers and an imbecile  immigration   policy are responsible for the  tramps.    Large  employers will  continr.e to import  cheap  labor so Ions as thoy are allowed to do so by tho government,  without any  thought   as   to   the  qualifications   of  these   foreigners  for   citizenship.     Let  the tramp  swarm all over thc country.    If lie  can't get work he  can   at  least do  missionary   work    among   people  who do not know  how  to protect  themselves at the b'dlot box. What  this  country  really  needs is more  tramps, ''swarms of  them, to show  in its true light the im migration  policy of thegovcrnment.    Canada  needs millions of European ignorant toughs in order that the supply  of tramps may not run out.  tr^-*^*J,.-yfcV.**fcrf*������*r..1������S SsJtYfr.jTTrq'; n.~\  But what of the countless times  when the nariio and reputation and  character of men and women are  disposed of by a word of thoughtless slander ?

"With   four  tunnels   being run  iuto the high-grade belt at intervals of between a half and a mile  apart,   development is being done  that filiould  result in  proving the  belt and in   the   discovery   of a  number   of   high-grade   veins   at  depth.    Each  new vein discovered  means tho employment of an extra  number of men and  a' constfjuent  increase in the payroll to be spent  in the city.    At present there are  about   twenty-five men  employed  in  the   high-grade mines.     This  number should ho increased to one  hundred in f-ixty days if oro is encountered,  fin-1  then  the business  interests of thn city will bo independent of tho II. 0. Copper company, its opening.H and its closings.  When   that  time arrives   Greenwood will be prosperous.  "What  shall   wo  do  with tho  tramp? appears to be Um all.ir������r'  "What have you made of yourself ? What have you done for the  world ? "Whom have you helped on  the up-road '! What sacrifices have  you endured to justify the right to  claim principle? JIow many times  have you resisted tho sale of your  honor? How often have you kept  your word rather than keep an unfair dollar or take an unfair advantage?  Is society any better for your  birth, or have you added to the  welfare of others ?  Suppose you drop thc blinders of  conceit and take a squint in thc  mirror of revelation. And while  you're at it get a good look. Sec  your wcakncsr-es and acknowledge  them. They're bound to be found  out by some one else, because the  ife.will sooner or  away the plating of hypocrisy and let the brass of your  nature peep through.  "Who are you that you havo the  right to judge anybody ?  Is your own past .so spotless���������  has your own record been so pure  that you're qualified to .condemn  any man or woman in the tribunal  of your complacency ?  Have you known hunger and  privation���������has your heart been  torn and your soul worn by the  pressure and tho grind of misfortune?. Havo you been put in positions where temptation cried out  with a thousand tongues while  necessity knmited with 11 hundred  Inches? Are you ho ju^t, so all  knowing as to determine how any  man or woman shall a..:t?  Circumstances aro so peculiar,  combinations of event* are so misleading, that every wheel in the  machinery of justice is set to clog  at circumstantial evidence. The  juryman recognizing that his verdict will bring a dtflinite result-  that it will send a man to his death  or deprive him of his freedom and  destroy his good name���������argues and  pleads and fights with his iweociutes  over ovcry doubtful point in tho  testimony rather than go through  llfo with the respouiiibility of condemnation,  A widow seems to mourn more  for a bad husband than for the loss  of a good one.  Never judge the worth of an article by the amount of coin you  put up for it.  Although the toper knows that  he has to die he draws the liuo at  a watery grave.  It's unfortunate that all men  are liars���������but it's -more so that all  women know it.  Often a man spends a lot of time  fit his club because there is no  place like home.  It's a pity that our neighbors  don't know as well as we do what's  good for them.  The wag of a dog's tail is more  to be trusted than the shake of  many a man's hand.  Many men would reach the top  if they could attain it by sliding  instead of climbing.  Tho worst feature of a divorce  is that it usually results in two  more marriages.  The man who hesitates before  he makes a promise is tho ono  who's most apt to keep it.  A genius is a man who doesn't  know whether he's eating boiled  cabbage or stewed fudge.  The average man would rather  lose a dollar on a horse race than  earn a quarter at hard work.  .-'---- Ro$$iattd  Is thc leading hotel of the  city, and the home of tourists,  mining: men and commercial  travelers.
