There is a rumor going the  rounds of the camp -that a large  merger of several properties'will  take place soon and that after the  merger is completed development  on a large scale will be commenced.  The syndicate also has in mind,  it is said, the erection of a 6melter  and an electric railroad connecting  the different mines of this camp  and across, the line into British  Columbia., Color to this rumor  has been added by the filing of  wateivrights'for a power. sight by  parties who "are said to' represent  large capital.  ���������   Placer Mining.  ..

By vexatious delays, through no  fault cf the manager, has prevented actnal .operations until within  the past week. The flumes are  now all in place, the pump iiuwork-  ing order and a steady stream of  water, sand and gravel is being  turned through the boxes. The  stream is washing off the surface  on the first run, and some trouble  is being experienced with large boulders. The rich aud better pay  dirt will be encountered on bed  rock. No clean up has yet been  made, and that crucial proceeding  is looked forward to with a great  deal of interest. In old days the  river banks produced much gold,  and prospecting with pans show  colors on the ground where the"  Golden Sands people are now operating. .If this venture proves a  winner undoubtedly other companies will be organized, and the banks  of the stream become as busy a  scene of mining as they were, fifty  years ago, when several thousand  prospectors were "using the pau,  cradle and sluices on the banks  and'bars of that stream from Oroville to Eich Bar.-Oroville Gazette.

Thomas Jefferson : "Do not sit  up late at night,-study and work  in the daytime. Kise early aud  go to bed early. Avoid novel reading and cultivate the companionship of good hooks. Never tell  a lie or stoop to a mean act. Be  kind to every living creature.  Speak no evil of an vone. Be good,  adore God, be loyai to friends and  love your country better than yourself. Take hold of things by the  smooth handle; avoid disputes; do  not turn pleasant conversation  into heated argument. Too much  speaking ~is not best. Never put  off till tomorrow what you can do  today. Never spend your money  before you have it. Never buy  what you do not need because it is  cheap. Pride costs more than  hunger, thirst and cold. We never  repent of having eaten too little.  Never borrow trouble."  We have experimented with  several of thcho things and have  found that Thomas was level  headed.      Put: "I hear yer woifo is sick,  Moiko?"  Mike: "She is that." -  Pat: "Is it dangerous she is?"

Billy Perdue' had a novel -experience with a bear on Tuesday  afternoon. He was fishing, along  Lizard creek, working upstream,  and was whipping a pool below  a little waterfall that made a,  brawling noise in the woods.  Right over the fall is a small  log that dammed up another pool'  on the upper side, Billy had no  luck in the lower pool and cast  his flies over the logs to have  a stealthy try at the hole higher  up. He could not see the .lower  edge of the pool he was trying in,'  but allowed his flies to float down  until they were below the line of  his sight over the logs. Suddenly  he felt a tug on his line aud the  next moment the last section of  his rod and the most of his line  went with a snap to the accompaniment of a **b!at" like the snort  of a goat. The angler thought  that he had a whale or a squawfish  or an aligator, for a fraction of  a second. Then he changed his  mind whrn a small black bear  shot into tbe bushes. Simultaneously a twelve inch trout was  jerked from the water and leaped  after the bear. The piece of rod  came off the line aud hung up on  the bank. The fish was torn  from the line about three yards  from tbe bank. The line is probably going yet.   Ditto the bear. .  Billy figures that the bear was  lying ou a small gravel bar above  the logs probably asleep. When  the trout took the last fly on the  cast it jerked one of the other  flies across the nose of the ursine  sleeper. ��������� He promptly woke .np  and took to the tall spruce, bringing the fish and a piece of tbe rod .  part of the way.  Billy   thinks   that  if   he   bad ���������  known  the strike be  was  going  to get lie might have played him  to better advantage.���������Fernie Free  Press.  TRUNKS BY MAIL.

He cau therefore get his llv'  ing around any farm. If living near a  marsh be will feed on crabs and frogs.  If there are snakes on a farm he will  thin them out. A fight often takes  place between a possum and a black-  snake, but the former is always the  winner, it is said thnt the bite of a  rattlesnake will not poison him. In  gathering fruit from a tree the possum hangs to n limb by his tall nnd  uses his forefeet to gather with.

The  two  oddest   things about  the  possum Is the way he uses his tail to  hang by and his "playing dead" when  attacked and overcome.   It the farmer  clubs one to death, or thinks he does,  the animal will remain quiet for hours  and then get up and walk off.   To actually kill blm with a club be must be  beaten to a jelly,    ne has a hide on  him like a bull, and he has few nerves  to feel pain.

Known to the irreverent as tho  "Linseed Lancers" or tlie "Poultice  Wallopers," the officers of the Royal  Army Medical Corps huve undergone  ������ good many vicissitudes.  In the old days the army "sawbones" was attached to a regiment,  followed it everywhere, and often  6pent his life witn it.   '  Nowadays, however, with the exception of the Household troops, army  medical officers are appointed, not to  regiments, but to garrisons, and are  constantly being moved from one  garrison town to another.  The modern army doctor, therefore,  has army rank, but, at the same time,  his executive powers are limited. Ha  can only command men of his own  corps.  Candidates must be between twenty-  one and twenty-eight years of age, and  at the time of appointment must ba  registered under the medical act3 in  force in the United Kingdom.  They huve to undergo an entrance  examination on purely medical subjects, and their character, health, etc.,  being, satisfactory, they are appointed  on probation.  While on probation, the oflicet  undergoes a two months' course at  the Royal Army Medical College on  hygiene, pathology, tropical medicine,  military surgery, and military medical  administration. Then he goes to tho  Royal Army Medicul Corps' School of  Instruction at Aldershot for a two  months' course in the technical duties  of his corps, in each*case having to  puss an examination at the end of the  course.  All being well, his probationary  period now expires, and he becomes a  full-fledged officer of the R.A.M.C  The army doctor's pay is fairly  good, certainly -very good compared  with that of a regimental oflicer. As  a lieutenant he gets l's. a duy, as  against tho Gs. Cd. per diem of the  ordinary subaltern; but then he is  usually an older man.  As a captain, the army doctor gets  only 15s. 6d. a day; but then he can  become a captain in about three  3*ears, us against the six to nine years  that it takes the regimental officer to  "get his company." Moreover, after  seven years' total service, the army  doctor gets 17s. a day, and after ten  years' total service he waxes fat on  a guinea  a day.  A major gets from ������1 3s. 6d. to  ������1 6s. a day, according to length of  service, a lieutenant-colonel from ������1  10s. to ������1 15s., a colonel ������2 5s., and a  surgeon-general ������3 a day; while, if he  become a dephty-director-general, our  military "Bob Sawyer" v ill get  ������1,500 a year, and if he reach the top  of the tree and becomes director-general of the Army Medical Service, ������2,000  per annum will be his reward.  These rates of pay are generally  substantially increased by extra pay  for holding certain appointments. For  example, the medical officer in charge  of a hospital gets from 2s. 6d. to 10s.  a day extra, according to the nrmber  of beds; an officer holding an appointment as specialist gets 2s. 6d. a day  extra; and in one way or another the  army doctor can add to his income.  With average luck an army doctor,  after ten years' service, should be  making at least ������500 a year���������that is,  ut the age of from thirty-one to thirty-  eight���������and another ten years should  see him drawing at -least ������1,000 a  year.  He has a certainty, and when he  retires���������which he must do at fifty-five,  unless he is a colonel���������there is a pension waiting for him, ranging from ������1  a day after twenty years' service to  the ������1,125 per annum of a retired  director-general, with three years'  service as such, and thirty years' service in all.  In tlie old days, India:- army doctors often made fortunes out of attending rajahs, who were only too delighted to hand over the equivalent  of ������10,000 for having an ingrowing  toe-nail removed, or some other trifling operation performed.  But these days are gone, and civilian practice is only permitted under  certain conditions.  M'tULL'S NEW SCHOOL  Medical  Faculty Has a Fin*  Modern  Home.  When, the 500 or more students in  medicine* of McGill assemble to: an-  other year's work in the autumn thoy  will find the new $800,000 Medical  Faculty Building prepared to receive  them.  It is pretty safe to say that none of  the universities of the world wil. afford its students and professors a  more practically designed and complete home for their avocations.    .  As befits a modern medical training  college, the -irst consideration of the  builders has been hygienic.  Thu vaulted passages and corridors  are wainsootted with white tiling,  which finds pls.oe also around doors  and windows, wh'ire wooden moulding  is usually employed. ' Where wood is  used at all, it is old oak, chemically  treated to resist fire. The lesson of  the disastrous fire which destroyed  the old building and its valuable  museum has not been overlooked.  The administration department and  faculty room are on the McGill College avenue, side of the building, and  are beautifully finished in oak. Adjoining on the campus front are students' libraries and readingrrooins of  equally sumptuous design and finish,  the leaded windows bearing in colored escutcheons names famous in medical and surgical science from Aesculapius and Galen down.  There are two striking tablets alio  in the upper corridors, to th.e memory  of Ci. '1'. Holmes', M.D., LLD., and  R. P. Howard, M.D., LLD., both former (*-uns of the faculty.  The class rooms and smaller lecture  rooms arc on tlio campus front side on  the three stories.  The two extensions, which run almost clusu to the Koyal Victoria Hospital, are devoted on the Avenue  West side to pathology, chemistry  and anatomy respectively. Dentistry  also finds a place on the ground lloor,  several demonstration and class  rooms being devoted to that branch  of the science.  In the basement the subjects for  dissection will ba disposed in airtight receptacles, and preserved by  an alcoholic arrangement of great ;  practibility. An enclosed special elevator will convey subjects to the dissecting room on the third story. These  arrangements are of peculiar interest,  and represent the latest word in anatomical education.  The eastern extension is fitted up  for museum purposes. Its distinguishing feature is a central lighting  tower, surrounded by massivi pillars,  and low-tiled walls, with handsome  hatchments displaying the special  coat of arms of tlie faculty. The two  lower floors will contain the pathological specimens, the uppermost Dr.  Shepherd's  collection.  These large apartments are at present  being   fitted   up  with   steel   and ���������  glass  air-tight   cases   of   uncommon  design  by   Messrs.   M   Edwards  and  Co., of Syracuse, N.Y.

Headache often tells of just as great  danger1 but headache is so common  that it often fails as an alarm signal.  You- are never in greater danger  than when the nervous system becomes exhausted. For there is- then  every reason to look forward to some  form of paralysis and consequent  helplessness of mind or body.

The slope towards the river is  covered with brush, and the. rest of  , the land is partly in native grass and  partly seeded down- with ' mixed  grain for pasturage, which is a great  help to keep pigs in good growing condition.  The principal building provides  pens for some 50 hogs, and in one end  of it I have a feed room with tanks for  storing water and buttermilk. The  feed room' is surrounded on three  sides by feeding yards fenced in and  they are arranged so that hogs of  nearly the same, size .are fed together.  Outside of the regular feed yards I  have other buildings used principally  for breed sows whenever I find' it advisable to separate them from the rest;  while these as well as straw stacks  are, available for farrowing quarters,  the sows seem to prefer farrowing in  the bushes in summer. :-  My bunch of hogs is of the Yorkshire breed, bred from registered stock  and consisted in February, 1909, of 1  boar, 13 sows and 27 young hog3 for  fattening. During the year the brood  sows had 17 litters, totalling 138 pigs  of splendid vitality farrowed as foi-  lows: 8 litters in March, 5 in May and  4 in August. I bought 05 half grown  hogs for fattening between September  lltli and November 15th, 1909. In  February last I had 35 pregnant sows  and 2 boars, having sold altogether  207 head during the year. During  pregnancy the sows are fed on oats;  otherwise barley,-is the staple grain  ration. In my experience the young  pigs- show less vitality when their  dams have been fed largely on barley.  Separate feeding yards are provided  Mix.    Shake well  and -apply to the I for the small pigs where they can at  neck', arms and bust,. rubbing and  massaging until completely absorbed.

It is very important to have the small pigs feeding well when they are weaned,* and  they should be fed liberally so as to  keep a clean skin and a good appearance,' without being fat.  * I start fattening'' the pigs when they  are 3 to 4 months old, and give then*  all the barley chop they will eat and  any buttermilk which is not needed  for the small pigs. I feed-.regularly  three times every day but only what  they will eat up clean.  The best size of pen is 12 feet by 10  feet with a 12-foot trough and it gives  room for ten hogs; larger pens - and  several hogs-in-each gives too much  disturbance. The pens are cleaned  out daily and some bedding is placed  in one corner of each. Hogs do riot  thrive well unless they are kept absolutely clean and the skin free from  scurf.  In order to secure the best results  we must keep the hogs comfortable  and treat them kindly. A hog so  handled should gain on an average  V4 lbs. per day from the day it is  farrowed until it is 5 months old.  Beyond that age every pound of gain  in weight costs more than under that  age. My hogs have been in splendid  health and I have not lost a single  pig from disease. This I attribute to  the open air, exercise and excellent  shelter afforded by the brush land sur-  rounding my hog yard. It also provides shade in the summer for the  young pigs.  Of feed stuffs, I used the equivalent of 2,800 bushels of barley, or 134,-  400 lbs., according to the formula; 6  lbs. buttermilk, 1 lb. oats, 1 lb. barley. From this I have produced 29,-  480 lbs. of hogs, using 4.56 lbs. of  barley per pound gained in the weight  and thus realizing 71.3 cents per  bushel after the principal items of  expenditure, such as- interest and depreciation,  are deducted.  As to the value of the labor involved,-this becomes a matter of individual calculation on farms where  hogs are kept in conjunction with  other stock, but it seems to me that  in iny'situation it is easier to feed the  barley to the pigs than 'haul it 14  miles  to  the railroad station.  The year's business is summed up  in the following statement, viz:���������  Bought   100   hogs     weighing  " 9,450 lbs $ 554.00  Bought barley, oats and butter-  ���������   milk   equivalent   to   134,400 '  lbs. barley     832.00  Sundry expenses rent, interest,  etc.)        165.00  A LTERBY J3KE.

Quite a large number of people who  seldom attend any other race meeting  make it a rule never to miss a Derby,  and one of, their principal delights is  the   journey down the   road.    Given  fine weather���������and this year they were  in luck's way in  this direction���������the  Epsom road has many charms at this  time of the year, and every description ,of vehicle is to be seen wending  its way to the at ordinary times sleepy  town of Epsom, which twice a   year  awakens from its lethargy and is for a  few days all bustle and excitement.  .Motors and taxis of every description,  smart   four-in-hands,    the    sprightly  quick-trotting   horses   of   prosperous  tradesmen, wagonettes, and the coster  in his   humble   donkey   barrow���������all  proceeded in one direction, and their  occupants had all one object in view.  They   were , out   for  enjoyment,   and  intended  to make  the most of their  day.     Quite   the   most   picturesque  turn-out this'year left the neighborhood   of   Victoria   at   nine   o'clock.  People  in  the  vicinity  of-the  Gros-  venor Hotel   were  astonished   to  see  drawn up at the portico an ordinary  costermonger's barrow capable of seating  four  persons,  and' in  the shafts  were a grey and a brown donkey. The  shafts   had   been   lengthened   by  the  addition of an iron bar, to which were  hitched  the   leaders, two more   grey  donkeys, making four in all.    It was  a very smart coster turnout, real four-  in-hand harness,  and plenty of flowers.   Whilst the crowd stood gaping at  the  sight two   smart-looking   costers  emerged   from   tho   hotel,   peak   caps  over tho eyes, jerseys, pearlies,'blue  chins,   and   slouching gait,   and   all.  1'hey   were-the  real   thing,   ttnd   the  crowd laughed and   cheered   as they  drove   off   along   Victoria   street   and  over  Westminster  Bridge.    Then the  secret came out.   It was a huge Derhv  Day joke.   Two subalterns in a famous cavalry regiment had been challenged by  their  brother officers,  an.I  the tempting offer of 20 to 1 to drive  a  four-in-hand  coster's   barrow  from  London to Epsom, the drivers to  be  arrayed in coster's attire.   The challenge was accepted, and as everything  in the way of dress had to be technically   correct,  a  visit  was paid to  a  well-known theatrical costumier, who  certainly  had   succeeded   in  effecting  his part uncommonly well.   The bet  stipulated that the party should drive  all   the   way,  and  pull  up on  some  prominent    position   on   the   Derby  course.  You will find relief in Zam-Buk!

Reference has frequently been made  to the King's ardor as a ''stamp-collector, and now the appointment of Earl  Carrington as Lord Great Chamberlain recalls the fact, almost unique,  that Lord Carrington's headappears  on a postage-stamp. Records contain  only one other instance, and that is  the case���������a classic among collectors���������  of O'Connel, the governor of New  Brunswick. He was not what would  be termed, even in flattery, an Adonis, but he placed his effigy upon a  postage stamp. The result was disas-.  t-rous to O'Connel. The stamps were  immediately recalled and so was the  governor. To-day, however, O'Connel  is popular with collectors, for the  stamp is of great rarity. Keen philatelists are always on the look-out for  the Matching siege stamps, which  bear the head of Major Baden-Powell.  They were only.issued to meet an emergency, but the Carrington stamp is  Queensland's compliment to a popular  governor.  Comet's Evil   Influence.  An authentic record of the bad luck  supposed to be brought about by the  comet is contained in the old parish  register of Alstonfield, Staffordshire,  England, iu which is a notice concerning a comet which was visible during  the seventeenth century. The notice  runs as follows:  "A very strange and fiery Meteor,  in form like a Sword, appeared northwest by west in December, 1680, and  continued about six weeks, after  which ensued a tedious and long  drought, which-began April the 10th,  1681, and continued till June the 20th  of the same year, which procured  many pcstilentious disease, as agues,  strong ffcavours, small-pox, of which  many died in ye Countrey, chifely in  great cities and towns corporate."  ln Maine a man attached to a life-  saving station at Small Point amassed a sufficient number of swords of  the swordfish to build a picket fence  forty feet in length.

At the first meeting of the South  African Union Cabinet, the other day,  it was decided to release Dinizulu,  the son of the famous Zulu chief Cete-  wayo. -.   ,    -  ' Dinizulu will be given a farm near  Nylstroorn, on which he will live with  his wives and personal attendants, and.  enjoy reasonable liberty on an allow,  ance of $2,500 per annum, subject to  good behaviour.  As long ago as 1887 Dinizulu was ar-  rested'and tried for high treason, and  sentenced to death. The sentence was  commuted, however, to imprisonment  for ten years at St. Helena, where he  spent his time in learning English.  Zululand was annexed to Natal, and  Dinizulu was released, in 1897, -.Ho  had been deprived of the position of  paramount chief, the colony binding  itself to pay him a yearly salary of  $2,500, "not to be withdrawn without  the approval of the Secretary of  State."  In 1905 and 1906 Natal was in a  state of considerable alarm, owing to  the disquiet among the Zulus, a strong  expedition finally being sent to quell  a serious rising. Dinizulu was arrested, and after months in custody was  brought up for trial in November,  1903, on several counts. The trial lasted till March of last year, and cost  the crown $50,000. Dinizulu was found  guilty of harboring rebels, and sentenced to four years' imprisonment.  Czar of the Bulgarians.  Perhaps tlie most picturesque of the  nine monarehs who attended King Edward's funeral was King Ferdinand of  Bulgaria, who was really a kinsman  of the late monaich, being descended  from the grandfather of Queen Victoria. He was merely a half-pay lieutenant of Hussars in the Austrian service when, in 1887, the Bulgarian National Assembly elected 'him to succeed Prince Alexander of,Hesse, who  had abdicated. In the trying and  dangerous episodes through which  Bulgaria has passed during the last  few years he has proved himself an  astute ruler, and gained much popularity.  I eople like him because he is unconventional and accomplished. He  is fond of botanizinc, keen about ornithology, and is a collector of rare  books and prints. In hi**1 palace at  Sofia the things one notices chiefly  are his large collection of useful books  and the manner in which he has ornamented his study and audience rooms  with souvenirs dear to Bulgarian history.

His ignorance of history recently  shocked one of the woman liLnds of a  young Buffalo society man.

Miss Nancy Price, the popular English actress, is credited, with the following story of the careful caddie. She  was. playing golf some time ago, on  links where there was a caddie of  about twenty-two years of age, who  always wore a cap with large flaps  which came down over his ears, as he.  was a victim to chapped ears in cold  weather. One bitter day in mid-winter Miss Price saw him without the  ear-flaps down, and asked him if his  ears were better. "They're not better.  They're as bad as ever they were. I've  never had my ear-flaps down since the  accident." "What accident?" queried  Miss Price. "Well, you see, miss, a  gent arst me once if I'd 'ave a drink,  and I didn't 'ear 'im!"  It was at a White House reception  that a Philadelphian picked up ' a  clioice gi-m which he never tires of  telling. A charming girl of eighteen,  the daughter of a western publishei  and quite a society queen in her own  city, had been broug'it to Washington by her father, and at one of the  White House receptions was presented  to President Roosevelt. As her small  hand disappeared within the grasp of  the president the maiden looked up at  him and smiling sweetly said���������"I've  often heard father speak of you."  , Bub Gives It Away  Big Sister���������Come, Stanley, do as the  doctor wishes.

The poetical young man with soulful eyes was walking with his matter,  of-fact brother by the riverside down  Kingston way. "How the stream  tosses in its slumber!" he exclaimed.

A Fine Bridge Hand.  An extraordinary hand at bridge is  reported by Miss Minnie Anray Jones,  of Clifton, Eng. At a final meeting  ot a local bridge club the declaration  was left, and dummy declared hearts  with thirteen. The cart's were not  new, and had been made and cut, but  had not been used, as the rubber had  only just begun, this b.-ing the second  deal. There were eight players in the  room to witness. The other three  hands were not remarkable, a suit of  six diamonds, headed by ace, knave,  being the only long suit.  What Could She Mean?  "Your little birdie has been very,  very ill," she wrote to the young  man. "It is some sort of nervous  trouble, and the doctors said I must  have" perfect rest and quiet and that  I must think of nothing. And all the  time, dear Gussy, I thought constantly of you."  The young man read it over, and  then read it through very slowly, and  put it in his pocket, and went out  under the silent stars, and kept  thinking, and thinking, and thinking.  The  Rest was Silence  "Why do they say 'as smart as a  steel trap?' ' asked the talkative  boarder. "I never could see anythi-g  particularly intellectual about, 11 steel  trap." "A steel trap is called smart,"  explained the elderly person in his  sweetest voice, beeau.-e it knows exactly the right time to shut up." More  might have been said, but in the. circumstances it would have seemed' unfitting.  NERVOUSJYSTEMS  Always Follows a Run Down  Condition of the Blood.

How    many  realty know tnat the thin  blood was  responsible for  the    nervous    disord-  ero.''    Tlie  nerves get all  tueir nour-  lsiimeni irom the blood, and as thin  blood is deficient    in    nene-builuing  material,   tlie  nerves   become  starveu  and  pain  and  nervous breakdown  is  tne reault.    Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills  are a tonic for thu blood that supply  it  with    the    necessary    elements to  nourisn and tone up tne nerves and,  tne cause being removed, nature does  the rest and health is fully restored.  iVtrs.

Adjoining,  there  are to  be  found   a  Turkish   bath,   a  fine  gymnasium,   and  squash   racquet  courts.  From the entrance hall, one proceeds  to   a   magnificent   vestibule   with  a  glass-covered, domed roof. On one side  is the general elub-room���������a compartment 100 feet by 40 feet.   The lounge  hall,   which   is   30 feet   high,   has   a  musicians' gallery at one end  and a ]  stage at the other.   In all, there will ;  be nine floors.

An elaborate description of the airship of 1915 is given, and it is believed that within five years such an air- .  liner will be capable of travelling 75 '  miles au hour ordinarily, and often 120  miles in the upper levels. Two miles  above the Equator a planetary current  encircles the globe at tremendous  speed. The ashes of the eruption of  Krakatoa were carried in this belt  round the world in fourteen days. Ten  years hence an airship driven fifty  miles an hour may perchance make  that trip in eight days, flying nt a  speed of 120 miles an hour, or 3,000  miles a day. *  I tions.

Many of the historic posts of the  Iludson's Bay Company in the  west will bo disturbed this year  through the building of the G.T.P.,  which is conquering the passage of  the Rocky Mountains and the  coast range. One of the most notable of these old posts, which was  used as a base for the supply of  the posts in the interior of British  Columbia, is Jai-per House, situated on the Athabaska river and  about 200 miles west of Edmonton.  Jasper House was built about 1800  and the records of the Hudson's  Bay Company show that it was established in the forest on the shore  of a small lake surrounded by high  rooks except on the lake side. In  1S17 the factor in charge was Jasper Hawes. It is his Christian  name which gives the name to the  post, which, however, in the early  years of its establishment was popularly called ''.Rocky. Mountain  House," although the post-of that  name was afterwards officially established at the junction of the  north Saskatchewan river and the  Clearwater river iu Alberta. Jasper Hawes was celebrated for the  great shock of yellow hair that he  wore and the Indian and half-  breed hunters referred to him as  "Tete Jaime."  Twenty Years Awake.  Alonzo Wire, the policeman who bad  not slept for twenty years died in New  Jersey a short time ago.  .Twenty years ago Wire was struck by  lightning. The shock deprived him at  first of his speech and his hearing, and  when he subsequently regained them  left- some subtle derangement of the  nervous oyseein ��������� which prevented him  from sleeping. Doctors who heard, of  his case made elaborate tests, but they  never caught him napping and at last  his assertion that he never slept gained  gradual credence. He used to lie down  to rest his body, but his "eyes remained  open and his brain always active.  '  After his attack Wire first took a job as  nightwatchman at a crossing, but when  his insomnia gained notoriety the railroad laid him off fearing that in ca*e of  an accident it might be criticized for  keeping a man on duty who was always  short of sleep. Then he became a policeman There his sleeplessness stood him  in better stead. Pie rose to. be chief of  police; saved a competence aud finally  retired.    .  A Good Food,  One-half of the .'human race makes  rice their chief food, says Science Sift-  iugs. The people of India, China and  Japan are rice eaters. A medical correspondent who has lived amoug the Chinese  and Japanese never knew one to have  dyspepsia. Rice as a food, he claims, is  equal to wheat, rye, barley, or corn, as to  nutritious value. It has this advantage  we are told, over all other cereals as to its  being digested in one hour. All other  cereals take from two and a half to three  and a half hours to digest. Rice is soon  out of the .stomach thus saving nervous  energy for natural repair of the body.  The best riee is the unpolished, as a large  percentage of the nutritious value of rice  is lost in the process of whitening the  rice. Besides the whipping process to  make it white, they use a coating of glucose and talc to finish up the process.  Unpolished rice is the best.   ��������� -\  GREENWOOD, B. C.

Butler, in Chicago Journal.  a  specialty of Ozark stories, tells  this one of an old colonel who went  down into Arkansas a great deal  when the railroads were building  through there to Texas.  He was not a sweet-tempered  man, and what he thought of Arkansas he was not soft to remark.  Oue day he was particularly abusing the State, its mosquitoes, bugs  and myriad pests. lb was a little  too strong for the natives, and one  of them retorted.  "Don,t see why yuh caiu't stand  it.    We live dowu hyar all right."  "Do you call it livin' down here  all right to set aroun' an' slap bugs  all day?" the colonel retorted.  "Don't slap bugs all day," the  native answered.  "Yes, you do, too. l*'ll bet $5  you can't set there where you are  five minutes with your hands folded iu your lap."  It was a bet, and the colonel  moved arouud behind the native  as that worthy undertook the ordeal. There were a few bugs of  one kind aud another, but the colonel placed his reliance upon something that was easier calculated to  make an impression.  Standing where his adversary  could not observe him, he took a  small sun glass from bis pocket  and focu8Sod its beams upon tbe  back of the native's neck. It was  not very long until the red hair on  the neck began to curl up and  smoke, and after two minutes and  a half the yellow skin began to  squirm. The native gritted his  teeth and stood it for three minutes and a half. Then he spoke:  ' "Colonel," he said, "Ah don  want to seem to hedge on this bet,  but ah'll compromise right now  for two dollars an' a half if you'll  let me brush that bald-tailed hornet  off'n the back of my head."���������St.  Louis Post-Despatch.

And when he dies, go plant him deep  That nothing may (Tisttirb his sleep,  Where no rude clamor may dispel  That quiet that he loved so well.
