Some concessions have hen  made ��������� by tin* company, but while  negotiations have been going on  I ho water mains to tho smelter  have been freezing. The repair of  ili.'se will cause a considerable out-.  lay to ihe company and after a  settlement has been arrived at, it  is .-aid fully a .month will be required before tin  be put in foiumis-ioii.

It would require his utmost ingenuity in the line of econ-.  omy to ' make both ends meet on  such a salary.

A firm of Toronto brokers in advertising Cobalt stocks advises the  public to beware of British Columbia properties that are being  offered in the market as Cobalt  properties. Has it really come to  thip, or is the Toronto firm lying  iu order to build up a reputation  for guiding the public away fr. m  the gravo of former hopes? If  true wo would like to hear the  names of the 13. C. properties that  are being paraded in the east as  Cobalt proposition4*.

We preach  goodwill to all men, and then let  the Hindus starve in our streets.  We preach liberty of opinion and  refuse it to others. The Kev. J.A.  Macdonald, editorial booster for  Cox and Jaffray preaches in the  pulpits of Toronto on Sunday, and  murders the truth during the week  in that journalistic prostitute, the  Toronto Globe. Lowery does n< t  boost for Cox, Jaffray and a similar class of politicians but tells the  truth at all times in his monthly  paper. He is shut out of the mails  for the truth is not -wanted in Ottawa. That Gehenna of politics is  too full of liars, thieves and grafters to relijh . any journal that  makes a specialty of truth. The  wicked still hate the light.  It   ii  even  possible for a prizefighter  to  be  a goo 1 young man.  Mike   Ward,   of Sarnia who waH  recently   killed   in   a  fight   with  Lewis at Grand Rapids, did uot  smoke,  drink or swear.   lie was  good to his parents and had bought  them a home from his winnirgs in  the ring.    Mike was ycry religions  and always went to confession and  naitl his prayers  before ttepping  into to the ring.    It was his ambition to be a clergyman and tho  fight in which ho List his lifo was  to  have been his lust for he had  saved enough from the proceeds of  his battles to put him through the  necessary theological education for  the priesthood.    Jt is seldom that  pugilists use the prize ring us a ladder to   reach   tho pulpit, in fact,  Ward's case is the first that wo  have heard of.

Jr ������������������������������������������������������   ..���������**���������    * ���������     ���������   ~       t  It would appear in America that-  even the church is getting crazy  judging from the following editorial in the Hamilton Herald :  A Hamilton preacher once said  that if by standing on his head in  the pulpit, and by no other means,  he could draw a congregation to  hear him preach the gospel, he  would cheerfully stand on his head  in the pulpit. That is the excuse  given by thc New York minister  who, last Sunday evening, had a  professional whistler in his church  to whistle operatic airs. The novelty of the thing drew a big audience t:> the church, and that was  the minister's justification for the  introduction of such a novel feature iuto the evening perf��������� that  is to say service.  A judicious admission of vaudeville "turns" iuto the ordinary religious services might prove successful in drawing the non-church-  going cluss to church. The performances of a song and dance  team, a contortionist or acrobat, a  juggler, a black-face monologue  artist, interspersed among the  hymns, prayers and lessons, would  certainly relievo tho proceedings  from the charge of monotony, even  if they did not tend to make the  minds of the audience receptive to  gospel truths from the pulpit.  It may well be doubted if these  grosser methods of attracting  crowds to the churches will become  general in our time. And yet  what are they but a logical, if extreme and ridiculous, extension of  thc notion that the church may legitimately be used as a place of entertainment as well as ahouseof  worship? At a Methodist church  in Toronto coffee and cako are  served after the Sunday evening  service, avowedly for the purpose  of attracting young people. What  is usual'y the real purpose of the  elaborate music, the ornate ritual,  the common aim to make tbe service attractive ? Why to attract,  of course. The only difference between the ordinary methods of attraction and those employed by the  New York minister and tbe Toronto church is that the former keep  within the bounds of the Bacred  while the latter are only secular.  But let us not do injustice. All  elaborate and ornate church services are not made so iu or-  d -r to draw the non-church-  going class. In some cases���������let us  hope in many���������church services are  made beautiful simply because of  thc belief that the spirit of worship  cm bo stimulated in tho worshipers  by beauty of form, sound and  eolor in the service. Art is thus  made the handmaid of religion.  That,  however, is not the motive which suggests such attractive  features as whistling solos and coffee and cake and church sensationalism generally.   Is not this present  day   tendency  a symptom of  religious degeneration ? At least is  it not a symptom of pulpit degeneration?    Why this  craving for  crowded churches ? If the preacher  has "fit audience though few,"why  should he lack tlie inspiration to  deliver his message���������if he   have  one?    One of tho most effective  sermons     ever     dalivered    was  preached to an audience of one���������to  0 poor woman who went to a well  to  draw  water   and found   the  preacher there, waiting.  alent in some parts of the Boundary during the past year we print  the following advice:  Typhoid fever is caused by the  water or iniik you drink or the  food you eat being poisoned from  the person of a previous case of typhoid, and in no other-way.  Water and milk are the two  articles most frequently poisoned  by typhoid. Heat kills the typhoid  germ. Therefore boil all drinking  water for 25 or 30 minutes Pasteurize all milk and cream, especially for the young, A good  way is to-set a pan of cold watei  jon the stove and put the vessel  containing the milk into this pan;  just arf soon as the water comes to  a boil take it off, add a pinch of  baking soda to the hot milk, a little  less than half a tcHspoonful to a  quart. Dirty hands may also  carry typhoid poison. Therefore  wash your hands carefully, before  handling any food or drink.  Food gets poisoned, especially  green stuff, by being manured with  night soil; by flies crawling over it  after feasting on typhoid discharge,  of which they are particulaily fond  and often by the filthy dust of thc  street. Therefore wash thoroughly  all vegetables and fruit intended to  be eaten raw, Wash in water that  has been boiled and cooled. Keep  flies out of the house as much as  possible by screens and fly papei.  Coverall food supplies so that flies  may not have access. If all discharges of every existing case of  typhoid fever vrera instantly disinfected, there would be no more typhoid in the world. Therefore, if  you arc so unfortunate as to have  a case of typhoid in the family,  disinfect every discharge as a duty  to your neighbors as well as to prevent others of the family from  contracting the disease.  Sulphate of copper (blue stone)  is the best typhoid disinfectant, is  cheap and can be procured everywhere. Dissolve one pound in two  aud a half gallons (one pail) of  water, Keep a pint of this in the  vessel for discharges, from both  bowels and bladder. Stir thoroughly for a few minutes; let it  stand for fifteen minutes and the  germs will bo destroyed1 Stools  and urine should never be thrown  out on the ground. If no system  of drainage, is at hand, tliey  should, after being thoroughly disinfected, bo thrown into a hole in  the ground arid covered with earth.  Germs, if not killed by disinfection  will live a long time in the soil.  This method of disinfection should  bo continued for a month or six  weeks after recovery. Germs have  been found in discharges as late as  two months after recovery. Do  not allow any discharge from the  bowels or bladder to be disposed of  except in this manner.  Damp', and unclean' basements  and yards and unclean premises  and surroundings weaken the;  health so that typhoid is more  readily contracted and more severe. Therefore, clean up and get  rid of all refuse and filth. Open  up drains and make sewer connections tight. Fresh burned lime  will keep damp basements and  yards dry. It should be used  freely in such places, especially  after tho sewers have "backed up''  and catch basins have overflowed.  Cleanliness is not only next to  godliness, but it is the only fafe-  guard against typhoid fever, cleanliness of the person;cleanliness of  every desail of housekeeping;  cleanliness of everything to be eaten  and drunk; cleanliness iu the care  of those ftiok of tbe disease; cleanliness; cleanliness; cleanliness.  Typhoid fever is the result of  lack of cleanlineup, not necessarily  on tho part of the patient, but  certainly ou the part of somebody.  It is, above all others, the filth dis-  iase.  instance, - tho matter  of election '  A Philadelphian, some years ng<  was running for a small office, and'  on election day he went from pol  to poll cheering his supporters on.  As ho left a certain.poll, a shabby  iudividual approached and shook  him by the hand.  I trust, sir, said the candidate,  that you are one of my supporters.  One? chuckled the shabby individual.

The major portion of the buok is  devoted   to   a   chapter describing  practically all known copper mines  of the world, and listing every copper mining company of importance.  This chapter is arranged alphabetically, by titles, rendering it self-indexing,  aud saving more than 50  pages of double-column index that  otherwise   would   be required to  merely give the titles of the 4626  mines aud companies listed iu the  book,   their .being 777 more cities  than  iu the preceding annual edition.   ,' The    descriptions    range  range  in length from two lines, in  tho ca������eof important old and idle  properties  to  nearly sixteen pages  in the case of the Calumet and  Hecla,  a  miue that employs seven  thousand men and will-have "paid  one   hundred   million   dollars  in  dividends by April next.'  The detailed description? in- the  main chapter of the book are especially valuable because of their  completeness, covering, as-they do,  exact prices, full addresses, details  of organization, officers and  finance, in addition to full and  careful particulars regarding loca-'  tion,area, ons; mine development,  equipment and prospects.    Ilerc-  the  Cilumet & Hecla, which was  the  largest  producer of'the Globe  in 1905, 7 pages for the Anaconda,  8   for  the   Greene,   6 for the Rio  Tinto and  Copper Queen, and 2 to  G.pages each  for the'Grauby  of  Canada, Furukawa, Sumitomaand  other    leading   Japanese    mines,  Mansfield  of Germany, M mtecat-  inje of  Italy,' Sulitjo'.ma of Norway, Bogoslov.sk'of Rusf'ia.

Cape Copper  of  G*ipe   Colony   andNew-  foiuidl.mil,. and scores  of others,  there   being   hundreds   of copper  mines having descriptions of more,  than a page each, and thousands of  .smaller properties   occupying  less  than one page   each.    The total  number of copper mines'ahd companies  listed  this year is 4,626, a  gain of 777 over 1905,' a fact indicative of tho very widespiead intense in copper mining now mani-  fested'in all parts of the world.  The  publisher  makes the usual  offer   of   sending  this  book, on a  week's  approval, fully prepaid, to  any address in tho  world, without  any'advance payment." This offer  has been made for six'years past,  and the publisher states that of the  many thousands   of books so sent  out,  less than three per cent have  been returned   as   unsatisfactory,  and less than throe per cent of the  .books  retained remain unpaid for,  the percentage of loss, on this plan  of unlimited credit, being less than  the average allowed by'- most business   houses   maintaining    credit  bureaus, which speaks will for the  inherent   honesty of the average  man when put tn honor. ,r"  The Copper Handbook, Vol. VI;  for 1906. issued Oct.

MARSHALL, Prop, I  to mines have con fined themselves  either to thc financial or the min  ing end, but the Copper Handbook  covers all the features of interest  to the investors, miners or scientists, not of one miue or company  but of thousands, not in one district but in every district of the  world.  The book contains much solid information of   a  sore  valuable to  mining men and practical miners,  including a complete list of  the  copper minerals, with their various  names and characteristics, a summary of copper geology, chjmistry  and methods of treatment, including     milling,     leaching,    smelting,    etc.      The    detailed    descriptions  of  the   various copper  mines of the world give a mass of  facts, all prepared in logical order,  that cannot but prove of vast benefit  tetany practical man who reads the  work,  as  they furnish a birdseyo  view of the copper mining, milling,  and    smelting    industry    of  all  countries and ages, with developments down to date.  To the practical men engaged in  the work of making thecopper.and  not in tho gentle art of mining by  prospectus from an eastern office,  the book will bo found of great  practical value, as it gives details  of promotion, including officers,  organization, finances, etc., of a  sort that usually are hard for the  men on tho ground to look nt, and  a strong side-light is thrown upon  many companies, of a kind that  may save money to thc practical  man who reads the book. It is  rarely that one book comprises  within its covers so much information on bo many different points of  interest, and all of tho sort that  both minor and investor are vitally  interested in knowing.  The earliest issues of the Copper  Handbook, of which tho presout  issue is the sixth annual number,  were local  in scope, but the work  (has broadened .until,  for several  the purpose being to begin tho re  vision of the taiiff as toon as practicable, continue it from day to  day, aud have it completed cither  shortly before or immediately after  the Christmas recess. There seems  to be no insuperable obstacle in the  way of carrying out this program of work as designed and announced.  Presumably all the changes made  in thecustoms duties will bo based  on    what   the   Finance Minister  learhed during his long aud laborious inquiry a few  months  ago.  If so   there   is little likelihood of  any startling change in the customs  duties..    There  will probably be  some formal improvements in the  tariff  as a   whole, which will improve its working without materially increasing the burden it imposes on the consumers of imported  aud   manufactured   goods.    The  government must know perfectly  well that the people of Canada will  not stand   for higher taxation at a  time when tho revenue is buoyant,  when the manufacturers are prosperous, and when the cost of living  is unprecedently great aud is steadily increasing.  Tho estimates of revenue and expenditure for the   next financial  year may be brought down before  the tariff discussion is finished, but  tho House of Commons is not likely  to go into Committee- of Supply uu-  til tho work of revision has been  completed.     It is already certain  that the surplus for the current financial year will be very large, but  that is no reason for increasing  controllable expenditures.    Rather  tho reverse, for it is .much easier to  increase expenditure  when there  are annual surplussos than to curtail them when there are yearly deficits.    The plain duty of Parliament, in view o(the enormous expenditures of the next few years  ou tho National Transcontinental  Railway, is to meet theso as far as  posgiblp out pf thesurplus rpvctiuc,  THE ARLINGTON  COPPER ST.
