On Saturday evening the Liberals, will nominate a candidate for  this riding. Alex.'McDonald and  J. D. Spence are the names mentioned for the candidature. .  Previous to their.departure from  Phoenix to Vancouver, Mr. and  Mrs. George *I>. Turner were presented by their friends with au address and a cabinet of table silverware.  Jerome McDonell has - razed the  old Smith building in Anaconda  and toted the remains to his ranch  for the purpose of erecting a commodious barn for the use of his  bovines.  Harry Fox was buried last Fri-.  day. Services were held in St."  Judo's church before the funeral  proceeded to the cemetery.' The  pallbearers were .Messrs. Vaux.

The groom is well, kuowu in this  city, being the oldest. sou of Mr.  and Mrs..- N.-=Cle)jf,, and was for  years-employed .by'S. Jiutixs'& .Co.'  He" is now engaged in the drayiug  business at Kahlotus.  ���������  The Windsor hotel is now under the management of E. J. Car-  tier, who had charge of it*during  some of the palmy days of Greenwood. Beiug well known and familiar with the people and the district, the Windsor .will lose none  of its old-time prestige under the  guidance of Mr. Cartier.    *  Judging from the number of  dogs in Greenwood no reflection  can be cast upon the local sausage  factory. The best sausage maker  in B. 0. is in Greenwood, aud he  has never been known to mix even  the bark of a dog with his savory  productions. For toothsome sausages Greenwood wins the prize.  The assizes on Tuesday were  practically a pair of white kids.  Mr. Justice Clement presided aud  did not require the grand jury to  make a presentment. There was  only ono caso on the docket. Steve  Basta and Joe Matseh of Phoenix  were to appear for theft, but forfeited their bail of 8100 each, and  his lordship instructed a bench  warrant to be issued for their apprehension.  The New Dominion Copper Co.  effected a settlement at 75 cents on  the dollar with the miners who had  wages due them by the old Dominion company, and it is reported  that the payments are being made  this week in Phoenix. The new  company was not responsible for  these debts but preferred to make  a settlement rather than have any  trouble when operations aro commenced. Work at tho Rawhide  will commence shortly. Although  no official information has been  given out it is likely that the ores  of the New Dominion will be  smelted in Greenwood.  Jackson.' Nominated..  - At a, meeting of delegates last  evening here J. R. Jackson of  Midway was- nominated to contest  Greenwood electoral district. There  were 31 delegates present and .Mr.  Jackson obtained a .majority on'  the first ballot.,  Mr. Jackson is a Canadian coming from Grey county, Ontario.  He has been a resident of the district for about twenty years and  owns a line ranch about t three  miles from-Midway.

It gives me great pleasure to  learn through my. old tillicum, Al.  Palmer, that you are takingup as  much space ,as Pierp Morgan or  John Dividend Rockefeller, and  attending church regularly without any desire to prospect the collection plate. Up the Skeena river  I saw Bill Doyle, formerly of the  classical city of Three Forks. He  has a spud ranch and makes a  specialty of serving bear meat a la  mode to all his guests.  ���������Cap.

Godfrey, formerly of Sandon, is trying to be. an honest  lawyer in Seattle, while John  Bough is prospecting in Arizona.  There was a beet at the-New  Westminster fair big enough for a  Vancouver policeman to sleep in,  while some of the pumpkins were  larger-than many of the old cabins  at Three Forks. Moat of the people at the fair were tenderfeet and  many of them had traces of ham  and eggs in their whisker's.  I assayed Scotty Stevens and  found" that he had several real  estate blocks in his pocket and  plans for a. 40-story building with  a barbed-wire fence around it.  I was following the bare end of  a cayuso through the Yellowhead  pass all summer looking for the  good things."' I was fairly lucky.  I "located-* several-miles of ^landscape, discovered a vast amount of  oxygen and found' an untamed  squaw who could not play bridge  whist and was ignorant of Parisian  fashion plates. __ She could not tell  a directoire gown from a particolored horse blanket, although as  a face-painter she could give her  pale-faced sisters of veneered civilization several minutes start and  then come out with enough of Vermillion paint ou her facial anatomy  to decorate a village in fair time.  She had no birds in her hat but  the feathers in her hair never came  out of a pillow. But more anon.  .

Dated this HtH day of OctohorVlom).  SAML. A.CnOWELL.  Rev. M. D. McKeo has resigned  as pastor of the Presbyterian church  in Greenwood, owing to the fact  that the congregation is no longer  able (o meet its obligations. Rev.  S. Lundy of Phoenix has been appointed to act as moderator in  Greenwood. Ho also has a similar  appointment at Grand Forks, ow-  to the vacancy created by the  resignation of T. 0. McLeod. Mr.  McKep has many warm frieuds in  Greenwood and a full quota of  enemies. IIo mado the enemies  because, even if ho sometimes  erred in judgment, he always had  sand enough to declare himself for  what ho thought was right. With  a broader mind and greater physical health he would be a powerful  reformer.

It has been raining ever since I  havo been in town, although none  of the real estate has escaped.  Real estate is so valuable here that  some people have made fortunes  by scraping it off their boots and  selling it by the pound.  The only whiskey I located in the  Yellowhead country was a flask of  rye that a preacher had lost on the  trail. He was packing it along as  medicine.

Bunbury, tke  snergetic chief of provincial police  in Greenwood, the Oroville Gazette has the following:  "Speaking of Mr. Bunbury, reminds us that the press along the  border on the Canadian side is  dealing out some hot roasts to the  provincial constabulary. It is  probably more the methods in  vogue of handliug the .force by  those higher in authority than the  individual members that should  come in for criticism. -Ono thing  is certain, Mr. Bunbury cannot be  justly accused of lack of vigilauce  or efficiency. The people here  have had opportuuity to become  conversant with the activity of  this member of tho Canadian police force, and a more keen, wideawake peace officer can hardly be  fouud in harness on cither side of  the line. Ho has a large territory  to guard, but sinco he assumed  charge there has been a marked  depreciation of ciimo and wrong  doing within tho limits of the  country over which ho has jurisdiction."   Tho Miners' Union in Fernie  Ins completed its new hall and  theatre at a cost of $50,000. It  will seat 850 people.  Paddy Murphy of'Enderby has  received another payment on the  bond of the Winslow group in the  Lardeau.  George R.'

All the  members of tlie company escaped  with their lives.  The new roundhouse at Kamloops was opened last week.  At the supreme court in Kamloops E. A! Haggen of.

Ben Stout and Lewis Cook have  a group of zinc claims on Deep  creek, near Northport, out of which  they expect to inaka a fortune.  With   the opening   up   of   the  several copper-gold prospects which  have been reported from   time to  time in tho vicinity of Mara, Knob  hill and Round lake, interest will  be aroused and other discoveries  will   follow,   says   the    Enderby  Press.      These -ore   outcroppiugs  which havo been discovered are as j  good as any that some of the big  mines   showed   on    the   surface.  Money and labor are required to  demonstrate what these prospects  will turn iuto.    Up to tho present  time practical miuing men  have  not  been   much   interested,    but  there is no good  reason why the}-  should not  be if it can be shown  that the surface valuesjfgordown.

'HEN Mr. Bowser reached  home from the office the  other evening Mrs. Bowser  I Hid (i bit of news for him.  Her church was going to give an entertainment and she was on one of  the committees that would meet that  evening.  ������������������Well, 1 think I can manage somehow to tula- care ol" the house  while yon are gone." he replied, nnd  llieio was no fun her discussion about  It. .At 8 o'clock she went her way,  leaving liim smoking his cigar ou the  front steps. She had been gone about  ten in In in f-s when a boy about six  years old came crying along the street  nnd stopped ut tlie Bowser gate aud  walled out that lie was lost.  "Lost, eh':" queried .Mr, Bowser as  he walked down the steps. "Can't you  find your home, sonnyV"  ������������������.N'-nu."  '���������Well, come In and sit down on tlie  steps n niinuie. If it was Mrs. Bowser  she'd give you a cuff on the ear nnd  tell you to heat it, but I'm no such  nmn. Just wipe your tears away and  listen In me.

The cook had gone out five minutes  after .Mrs. Huweer. and so Mr. Bowser opened tlie refrigerator aud placed  =3  "N0TH1N' T' EAT F'lt TWO DAYS."  whatever he could  find on the table.  There was enough to make a meal for  a   hearty  man. and  the lost boy got  outside of the viands in ten  minutes  and   then   looked   around   for   more.  When  he  had  topped off with  three  large slices of bread and butter he -yag  asked:  "Now. then, your name is what?'1  -���������Billy."  '���������Wily what?'-'  vi- uiy b���������."  He brought, out his last name so  plump that Mr. Bowsei was startled  for a moment. It was a cognomen not  generally found in city directories, and  ministers, of the gospel are always a  little 'chary in ��������� referring to it.  "And what street do you live on?"  '���������Chestnut."  "And you've been lost for two days?  Hasn't any policeman offered to take  you home?"  "Num. Jest wanted to gimme de collar."^   "Cm! If Mrs. Bowser was here she'd  say you were n hoodlum, but I know  belter. Well, Billy, you've bad a good  sniiper. and I am ready to take you  home.

The boy was lifted  on to the lounge and no attention paid  to biiii, and after five or six minutes  he came to with a yell. The first yell  was followed by a second, third and  fourth, and he. was wound up for a  hundred when Mr. Bowser bribed him  with a nickel to stop. When the exchange had been completed he was offered another nickel to go home. Ho  considered the offer for awhile and  then said:  "It's wurt a quarter, boss."  "Now. look here, young sir," replied  Mr. Bowser as his face reddened up,  "it is evident that you take me for  some old guy. I don't believe you are  lost at all."

Bowser Gets His Reward.  That last was a poor bluff on Mr,  Bowser's part. The kid set up such a  wollish howling that a dime and a  nickel had to be crowded into his hand  before he would choke off. Thou he  offered to let his paternal host take  him home if given a drink of milk  first. Mr. Bowser clattered down to  the refrigerator and brought up a full  bottle, and Billy never stopped tc  draw a breath until the last drop was  gone. Then he announced his readiness to go, and. taking Mr. Bowser's  hand to prevent any escape, they went  dowu the street, together. It was a  straight course for five blocks, and  Billy had just pointed out the tenement in which he dwelt when a woman came rushing across the street and  shouted at Mr. Bowser:  "Kidnaper!    Boy   stealer!   I'll   have'  you arrested!"  "Hush, woman! Your boy has bPen  lost for two days, and I'm bringing  him back to you."  "It's a lie! He was here two hours  ago.

"Well. yes. rather lonely," replied  Mr. Bowser as he got up with a "made  in Germany" yawn and followed her  into the house.  FLOWERS  F0I1  VAStS.  flosei* Look Best In Bowls That Show  the Blushing Beauties' Stems.  Different forms should be. used for  "Iffi'rciit (lowers. A Hat. circular dish  Is needed for water lilies, and as these  flowers are large the vessel should be  also large in proportion. A siua'l  saucer Is pretty for tbe roselike hlou-  soms of the balsam or old fashioned  touch-me-not, a still smaller Hal plate  for pausles. The tall spikes of glailio-  luseA or loiig stems of carnations must  have all vases or slim necked pitchers  to sustain their brittle- forms, while  great bunches of lilacs or snowballs  need vessels both broad and deep.  Koses look best in the regular rose  bowls that show the blushing beauties  from stem to finish. In fact, all flowers with short stems require low, broad  vessels, flaring at the top. so as to allow the graceful drooping of mixed  leaves and blossoms. Not more lhati  four or five shapes are really necessary  to the best effects in flower vases.  Either flat or low, circular vessels,  which may be widely fluted upon tlie  edges to break the too great uniformity of a plain circular rim, or round  vessels which spread more or loss as  the sides rise from lhe bottom are  preferable.   .  All forms which bulge out below or  are in the slightest degree bizarre In  shape should be avoided. The old  fashioned bulb vat, shaped like a rabbit or other animal, with growing bulbs  sticking out through holes in the surface, Is the type of all that Is hideous.  The Japanese use bamboo, which  from Its Irregular surface loses tho  stiffness of the cylindrical form. We  have no bamboo to use, and imitations  iu glass, china and earthenware are,  like ail Imitations, offensive to good  taste. Flower vases should be of some i  opaque material, and good glazed  earthenware is really very suitable for  the purpose. Let it be without ornamentation of any sort and of "a single  uniform tint. No color should be employed that does uot harmonize with  the various units of flowers and leaves.  A pure neutral gray is pretty for the  purpose, as it affords an agreeable  contrast with the shade of green In  leaves and with almost all tones of  flower color.  Nest lu order of value comes pure  pale buff, uot Inclining to orange, but  its use is more limited than that of  gray. Opaque white flower vases are  sometimes effective by contrast; but,  as a rule, the contrast is too strong.  All colored glasses are to be rejected  aud colorless glass as well, since, as a  rule, flower stems are unsightly. Of  course there are exceptions to these  rules. Some prominent bulb dealers  offer gay earthenware vessels that are  really quite graceful aud pretty.  A New City a Thousand Years Old.

Wild Things of the Fields That Mako  Good Salad.  The custom of utilizing our common  weeds for pot herbs and salads is one  that has been handed down to us from  colonial times, and it is a valuable one  for the farm dweller or the camper  who has uot the city markets to draw  upon.  We are all familiar with the dandelion aud horseradish, though every  one may not know that tbe tender  shoots of the latter make good salad  greens. The watercress, too,, we most  of us know as a salad aud .pot herb,  though we may not have eaten its  cousin, the pepper green, in the same  way.  Strawberry leaves, marigold, chervel  and sand parsley, pennyroyal, sorrel,  liverwort and cowslips rank among the  more unusual pot herbs. The blossoms of the cowslip are also delicious  pickled in vinegar and 'served as a  relish. The young shoots of the milkweed are very edible'and wholesome  when boiled. That troublesome weed  known as purslane Is said to be nearly equal to asparagus.  The young shoots of the pokeweed  taste very much like spinach. "Goose  tongue," or seashore plantain, nettle  and the fresh curled leaves of the  dock, as well as the young stems of  the despised burdock���������the latter boiled  and skinned���������are other surprisingly  palatable foods. The latter need not  even be cooked, as it is good in salad  form.  Pigweed���������sometimes called red root  ���������is .still another edible weed; the  roots of bell worth have a medicinal  value, beiug laxative In effect, while  that little brother to the cabbage, the  mustard plant, is highly esteemed by  some when cooked. Among the ferns  that can be made to replace spinach  in the dietary are the cinnamon. _the  bracken and the (lowering varieties, all  of which grow In pastures and moist  places aud should be gathered young.  Bread has even been made of the  brake.  These herbs will generally prove  more Inviting when several varieties  ore cooked together, peppergrass.  smartweed and potato tops being added as-flavoring.  Cards and Their History.  Cards are square shaped pieces of  pasteboard printed with various devices and employed as a business medium by money changers. They are  usually made up in packs of fifty-two,  one for each week of the year. A good  many people play cards for pleasure,  iu which case their opponents are said  to be buying experience. In most card  games the rule is that the cards may  be cut, but uot otherwise marked. This  rule is not strictly observed in games  lu which only three cards are used.  Indeed, the marking of cards has attained a high degree of perfection  since the Introduction of numerous  card index systems. Fashions change  in card games as in everything else  Old maid, for instance, is nowadays  seldom played in the best clubs. Playing cards should not be cpnfused with  score cards, which are rather larger,  or with visiting cards, which are smaller.���������Fry's Magazine.

Juveniles' Views of Browning  Some original views of Browning occur in the essays written by Walworth  juveniles in connection with the annual Browning contest at Browning  Hall settlement.

An independent Miller.  When Frederick built his faraoaa  palace of Sans Soucl there happened  to be a mill that greatly hampered him  in the execution of his plans, and he  asked the miller for how much he  would sell it. The miller replied that  for a long series of years his family  had owned Ihe mill, which had passed  from father to son. and thai he wou.d  not sell it for any price. The king  used every solicitation, offered to build  him a mill in a better place and pay  him. besides, any sum he might demand, but (he obstinate miller still persisted in his determination to preserve  the inheritance of his ancestors.  Irritated at last by his conduct, the  king sent for him and said in an angry tone:  "Why do you refuse to sell your mill  notwithstanding all tbe advantages I  have offered you?"  The miller repeated his reasons.  "Do you know," continued the king,  "that I could take It without giving  you a penny?"  "Yes," returned the miller calmly, "If  It were not for the chamber of justice  at Berlin."  The king was so flattered by this answer, which showed that he was incapable of an act. of injustice, that he  dismissed the miller without further  entreaty and changed the plan of his  garden.

Genius, having his head in  the clouds, naturally started to wade  across, paying no attention to the  depth. The waters soon went over his  head, and he was drowned. Common  Sense hunted for a safe way to get  across, and finally he found a foot log.  As he got out about tlie center of the  stream the log swayed, and ho fell-into  the water and sank to rise no more.  Folly stopped at the bank of the  stream to amuse himself by throwing  pebbles into the water and watching  the waves.

'  HE WR  IRQ) GIRL,  A Courtship That Began Under  Peculiar Circumstances.  By ANITA W. EDGERLEV.  [Copyright,  1300,  by Associated  "Llturary  Press.]  Half a mile north of the Stevens  farmhouse, where Miss 'Irene Kings-  land, from the city, was visiting her  aunt and uncle, was the byroad leading to what was called the glen. There  was a glen with a cascade, and It was  rather a wild and rocky spot.  It was a quarter of a mile from the  main road, and on this byroad lived  a widow with' an auburn haired daughter sixteen years old.  After Miss Irene had been at the  farmhouse for a week and had become  familiar wllh tho sight of pigs, chickens, geese and an old rooster blind in  one eye she was told about tho glen  and was anxious to see it. The road  was plain before her. Take tho first  turn to the right and she was there.  She was told about tlio byroad, but  not about the auburu haired girl. In  this world thero nre always some  things lefl' out to make us trouble at  a future date.  The young lady of nineteen started  out bravely, and her spirits were unruffled until she turned Into the byroad. There she came across the auburn haired girl sitting oo a log by the  roadside. The proper way would have  been for her to stop and ask a question or two about the glen and thus  open up a pleasant conversation.  Unfortunately she took another way.  She held herself stiffly erect and passed  on. The auburn haired girl, who was  almost as pretty as Miss Irene, followed her. Miss Irene heard her footsteps, but would not look back. Auburn hair coughed and began to hum  a tuie, but it was * no use. -  Just how long it takes an auburn  haired girl to get her dander up has  never before been recorded for use of  the agricultural or any other department. In (his case It was four minutes. She had heard of Miss Irene as  being "from the city" and of being  SHE POINTED TO MISS IRENE AND 3MIIiEI)  WICKEDLY.  haughty and having at least two hats,  and she ached to take her down a peg.  From a distance of ten feet ln the  rear she remarked quietly that some  folk considered other folk as dirt beneath their feet.  Miss Irene reached the glen with  flashing eyes and blazing cheeks, and  of course she could not be expected to  find any grandeur or romance. The  moss grown rocks were there, and tho  waters cascaded, but they were naught  to tbe humiliated and indigDant girl.  She would go home, but she could not  go by the same route and pass that  young minx again and receive more  "sauce." * She would go by the fields  and woods.  It was ln carrying out this determination that.she soon found herself  in an old clearing and realized that she  was lost. She had started to weep over  It when another female entered the  clearing and advanced toward her.  The newcomer was a lady of thirty,  and she was also lost. She bad not  been lost In leaving the glen, but ln  seeking to find It. She was cool and  calm and did not fear that they could  not find their way to the highroad  after a rest.  Ah the couple sat on a log talking  events were happening elsewhere.  The auburn haired girl had gone down  to the main road, and as she reached  It a young man came driving along In  a buggy. She recognized him as young  Merrlfield, a lawyer In Bellville, fivo  ���������alios away. Having all the law there  was on his side, he was uot afraid of  a pretty girl eveu when he didn't know  her. He checked his .horse when near  her and siiId:.  "Say. miss, have you heard that one  of the female patients In the Bellville  Iusane asylum escaped this morning?"  "No!" she replied, with deep and exalted Interest and prepared to listen.  "Y*s. nnd when Inst seen she was  headpd this way. I am going over to  Liverpool, nnd (Ley wanted me to  spread the news ns I drove along.  Don't suppose you have seen anything  of a stray remi-le around here?"  "Oh, hut I hn -e. She passed here  an hour ago on her way to the glen.  I thought she win* queer ln her bend.  Yes; "Jfou'll Und her nt the glen."  It was the pretty girl's opportunity  at a rlw>I. nnd she took It. The law-  .<pr decided that If uhe would ride to  the glen wllh lilni, to soothe nnd calm  the patient In ensp she was violent,  he would nmkp nn effort to return tho  put lent to (lie authorities. The girl  chuckled nnd climbed Into the buggy.  Of cour-ip Ml������s lien*1 wns uot found  Al the gieii, hul the lawyer wm a  Sherlock Holmes in IiIh way. H������  looked nbout mid found fragments ol  licr wardrobe Nth-king lu the rails of  H fence she had cllmbi-d, and, leaving  the horse and buggy and enthusiastic-  tilly followed by Auburn Hnlr, he clung  to the trail tin(II Hie clearing wus  reached.  "That's her!" exclaimed Auburn  Hair us she pointed to Miss Irene and  smiled wickedly.  If Ihe lawyer .hadn't heen a lawyer  he would have advanced and seized  the gullly party and thrown her over  Ills shoulder and started tor tho bus-  ������v. but lov/vers don't rtwli In whoro  Bgigj������ajig  angels fear to tread. Here were two  females. Indeed, with Auburn Hair,  there were three.  He hadn't a description of the escaped patient. , He had been told she  was a "youngish" female. The three  were "youngish." It. might be , any  one of them.  It might be the one who had given  him the Information. Insane people'  are cunning and up to all sorts of  tricks.  "Well, why don't you take her?" de;  manded Auburn Hair maliciously.  "Sir, what does this mean?" asked  Miss Irene as she drew herself up..  "Sir, what does this mean?'!, asked  the strange lady as she did likewise.  "Why���������why," stammered the lawyer,  "one of you has escaped from the asylum at Bellville. I am here to ask you  to return with me. You' shall have a  nice ride iu my buggy, and if you are  very quiet I'll let you drive the horse.  The asylum is a nice place, you know  ���������nice place. It's homelike and.nice���������.  very���������aud���������and"���������  "It's her!" repeated Auburn Hair,  pointing again to Miss Irene as the  confused lawyer looked from one to  another.  "You nre tho one!" sternly and tragically whispered tho strange lady as  she pointed at the auburn haired girl  In turn.  "By George! By George!" gasped tho  lawyer as he rubbed the back of his  head.  The pose lasted sixty seconds: then  the lawyer rallied his wits. Auburn  Hair had on an old frock and was hat-  less. She must be the one who had escaped, aud she must he taken back. ���������  "Now, then, be very quiet and very  nice," he said In a soothing way as' ho  took her hand. "You are going home,  you know. You are going where every  one loves you. If you aro good aud  nice you shall have a Teddy bear to  play with. Come along, dear���������come  right along. Perhaps you two ladies  wouldn't mind accompanying us until  we reach the buggy."  The tables had been turned on poor  little Auburn Hair, but she was no timid fawn despite her very evident good  looks. She s&-**tched, and as. he defended himsejjKtts best he could the  strange lady rW*up and clasped Miss  Irene ln her arms and went dancing  around and singing and laughing.  The four were fouud thus'when an  attendant of the asylum rushed into  the clearing and advanced to exclaim:  "Good heavens! ��������� Only one. escaped,  and here are four!"  It took five minutes to straighten  outthe' tangle. The strange lady was  the escaped patient,' Of course Auburn  Hair had got the worst of It all arouud,  and she was the first one to go. She  was game, but she knew when she was  worsted. ,.  When the lawyer and tlie girl from  the city had been left alone he made  his address to the jury. It was up to  him to make it a "huniiner." lie asked  the jury to remember thut he had never hunted escaped lunatics before, that  he knew nothing about jealousy and  auburn haired girls, that he was only  doing his duty and that if he was  brought in guilty suicide was tbe only  thing left him. The jury listened aud  leplied:  "Yon are forgiven this time, but don't  you ever take mo for a lunatic againl  You may take me home."  In driving down the byroad they had  to pass the widow's house. The auburn haired daughter was at the gate  and waiting for them.  They looked straight ahead, as If she  were not ou earth, but as they came  opposite she called out:  "Oh, it's a case of love at first sight,  is It? Well, I'll send each of you a  Teddy bear tomorrow."  Some courtships "have had their beginning under still more unfavorable  circumstances and ended most happily.  That's what this one did.  Seventy Years of Life.  A German mathematician has employed a little figuring to demonstrate  what the Biblical span of life of threescore and ten really means, and his  results are very Interesting.

Supposing that  he has taken three cups of coffee or of  tea a day. one at each meal, he has  cousumed 75.000 cups of wither bever-  nge. If he smoked three c-Igars a day  ���������>.e would have consumed thi' enormous  quantify of 5-1.750 cigars, which, at 5  cents apiece, would mean that J2.737.50  went up in smoke.

He has taken 735.840.000 breaths, being 1.200 In an hour, 28,000 In a day  and 10.152.000 In a year. The number  of heart boats Is still greater.

This account of how an intimate  friend of tho.great artist Kyosal obtained one of the painter's drawings la  from Mm. Hugh Frazer's "Letters  li"rom-Japan:"'  Kyosal always refused If asked outright for a sketch. So his friend began the negotiation by offering tho artist an excellent dinner. When Kyosal  bad drunk deeply and seemed ln a  mellow humor his host called for  drawing niuterluls, saying that he felt  an artistic fancy taking possession ot  him. No one was surprised, as Japanese gentlemen often amuso themselves In this way ufter a feast. Tho  servant then brought an enormous  sheet of white paper and spread It on  the floor with the brushes and Indian  Ink beside It. The crafty host, without looking at bis guest, sunk on bis  knees and began to draw, apparently  absorbed In his occupation, but Intentionally producing weak and Incoherent lines. Kyosal watched the feeble  effort lu silence aud growing Irritation,  and at last Jumped up, dashed the tyro  aside aud tore, tbe brush out of his  hand, exclaiming: "Out of the way,  you wretched bungler! I will teach  you how to draw!" And tho result  was n priceless sketch, which remained In the. possession of the wily entertainer.  A Max O'Rell 8tory.

After  two or three earlier applicants had returned unsuccessful from their Interview with Dr. Walker, who was at the  time headmaster of the school, M.  Blouet's turn came.  "I want," said the doctor after a  few words, "n French master who can  preserve discipline. My inst .was a  perfect gentleman and a good fellow,  but. he could not keep the classes In  order. The end of It was that after  being much worried by one of .the  boys the poor fellow went homo and  shot himself."  "Sir," replied Max O'Rell, "that Is  where my countryman made a little  mistake. .1 should have shot the boy."  The doctor rose, says M. Blouet, and  grasped my hand.  "M.

"No matter, sir." said the waiter and  took his hat and overcoat with an air  of determination and disappeared.  - "That's the third time," sighed he,  "that I have started to go home, met  somebody and parted from my bat and  coat to treat thorn.

"What are you reading?" said the  countryman.  "A novel of Bret Hartc's," said Mr.  Miller.  "Well, how, I don't see how an immortal being wants to be wasting his  time with such stuff."'  "Are you quite sure," said the poet,  "that I am an immortal being?"  "Of course you are."  "If that's the case," responded Miller, "I don't see why I need be so  very economical of my time."���������Philadelphia Record.

Miss Elmore  was both, and when, one evening,  Jonas, tho colored butler, had stood  patiently offering her the cakes for at  least a minute, she realised tho situation with a gasp, nnd tried to make  up for her embarrassment by prompt  action.  "I will take this one���������this chocolate  one," she said, with decision, as she  made a dab nt the edge of tho dish.  " 'Souse me, misH, you can't. Das  my thumb I" was Jonas's meek reply.  "You say, madam," said the bespectacled lawyer to the woman in the  witness chair, "that the defendant is  a sort of relation of yours. Will you  just explain how you are related to  the defendant.  The witness beamed upon the court  and replied:  "Well, it's just like this. His first  wife's cousin and my second husband's first wife's aunt married  brothers named Jones and they were  cousins to my mother's aunt. Then  again, his grandfather on his mother's  side and my grandfather on my  mother's side were second cousins,  and his step-mother married my husband's step-father after his father and  my mother died, and his brother Joe  and my husband's brother Harry married twin sisters.

The view of the proper uses to which  money may be applied depends wholly  upon the individual. There are many  who will see nothing funny in the old  man's comment on the uses a departed relative had made of her property.  "I dunno what good Elizabeth's  money ever done her," said Mr. Sage,  reflectively. "She spent it all. Give  it away here and there, and bought  things with it."  "No, sir," ho continued, "it wa'n't  much good to her. She didn't leave  a cent."  Who Tells Secrets?  If a fool knows a secret he tells it  because he is a fool; if a knave knows  one, he tells it whenever it is to his  interests to tell it.

Tho dukes and  others are much alarmed at the  aspect of affairs and are exerting  every effort to prevent the lower  millions from reaching up and  making them loosen tho cinch that  they have enjoyed for so many  centuries. The great tyranny and  selfishness of the upper classes in  England has brought about the  present condition and they alone  are to blame for the seething unrest in the Old Country.  Law and justice are two of the  slowest things in li. C. and a reform is needed in the administration of judicial affairs in this province.
