Boulder  county is the country's chief producer, having an output of from  3,000 to 4,000 tons of concentrates  a year. There is sufficient ore in  the Stevens county to harden steel  for all the war guns, all the battleships and all commercial uses for  the century to come, and the profits that will accrue from its production may equal the millions in  gold taken from several of the foremost fields in the country.  "Three camps are under development. One is the Germania in  Cedar canyon, 30 miles north of  Springdale; the Tungsten -King,  eight miles north of Dear Park;  and the Blue Grouse, a mile south  of the Tungsten King and eight  miles from Loon Lake.

By CLARISSA MACK IE.  [Copyright, 1910, by American freas Asso-  clailonTj  It was twiligtu when Harry Ayer.**  and his guest found themselves outside  the Temple ol ihe Five Sighs. They  had visited a dozen ancient Calcutta  temples that afternoon, and now the  dusk had suddenly fallen and (unied  : the crooked length of tlie harrow street  Into a dim perspective, lighted, here  nnd there by a lauteru swinging ahove  ii doorway.  Iu the foreground arose the blank  walls of the stone edifice, pierced by a  low door, beyond which trembled 11  faint red glow.  '"Have you the courage for another  one before dinner?" asked Ayers, pausing at the foot of tlie stone steps.  "Certainly." returned Lnngvvood  "The dozen we have seen this after  noon have not left tlie impression of  antiquity and mysticism for which i  was prepared. 'J'he carvings are will-  out doubt exquisite, the Images mas  terpleoes of horror, but the prlests-  bah!"  Ayers laughed. "I prophesy that  you meet your Waterloo here. Dick.  1 have never visited this shi'lne, but  Lester has. You know Lester of the  India bank?"  Longwood nodded. "Chap with white  balr-inot him al your club."  "Lester claims his white hair was  the result of a night spent In this temple," said Ayers over his shoulder,  feuding the way up the steps.  The orhei* made no reply, and together they passed through the door  and stood Iu the outer court of the  temple. Here mendicant priests squatted about the door of the Inner shrine,  presenting skinny hands for alms.  Once past these birds of prey they  were engulfed in a pale blue cloud of  incense, and through it they dimly perceived a large image of the Buddha,  gay in rich vestmeuts aud sparkling  with gems. The massive head looked  down' upon them  with expressionless  with the heavy perfume of the red lotus encompassing iheui like a rosy  cloud, until they seemed to stand together isolated from the world Iu tho  midst of eddying shadows and vague  murmuring sounds, with no object In  view save tbe implacable face abovo  them and the writhing (lower at Its feet.  Hours seemed to pas3 before tho  faint whispers of the last sigh stirred  the shadows. When it had passed  over them and died away in a shuddering moan Ayers was crying like a little  child, while Longwood stared wido  eyed nt tbe diminishing flames of the  lotus flower on tbe altar.  As if by some magic influence the air  cleared of the swlrllug incense, objects  came plainly Into view, aud tbe perfume of the lotus flower changed to  the acrid smell of opium that cling3 to  many Hindu temples. Tho lotus flower was gone, and Its palpitating beauty  had given place to the delicately tinted  bowl they had at first admired.  ' Ayers regained his composure and  faced his compnnlou with defiant eyes.  "You may believe uie to be a fool,  Lougwood," he began, when the other  Interrupted him. "1 know, too," he  said slowly.   "Let us find Lester."  Without another word they went  through the low door and out upon the  street, where the begging priests cringed away from their white faces and  where tho solitary lanterns dotted the  blackness of the street. Ayers scratched a match nnd looked at his watch.  "Seven o'clock. It wasG:*J5 when wo  entered," he announced grimly.  Longwood made no answer,  A half hour later, still silent, they  found Lester at his bungalow. He  was a tall man, lithe and slender and  not more than thirty years of age, yet  the thick hair above his forehead wus  as white as snow. His keen dark eyes  questioned them.  Ayers nodded.  ecessary for Eczema  Surprising Results Obtained from DR.  CHASE'S OINTMENT in Treating  This   Obstinate   Skin   Trouble.  Eczema may arise from a variety of  causes but once started it is a skin  disease and will continue to si-r^ad  and become more annoying until  local external treatment el'iccts a cure,  This is why Dr. Chase's Ointment  has supplanted the old-fashioned internal treatments which weie always  disappointing in results.  When this soothing, healing ointment is applied you see and feel the  benefits in short order. Tlie itching,  slinging sensations are overcome and  with the wonderful relief thus obtained you are encourarrcd to continue  tlie treatment until gradually the  sores are healed up anJ tlie disease  thoroughly wiped  out.  What is so annoying and discouraging as disfiguring itching, skin dis-  senscs.

When  It Costs $7,609 to Get $1,000-  "Writ of Extente."  Until a month ago, few people had  ALWAYS TOE  CCRLINO, CLINurXQ  TAPOB.  eyes and calm, inscrutable face. Behind the sealed bronze lips were locked  secrets of ihe centuries.  A solitary shaven priest adjusted a  prayer screen and arranged ou a long  teakwood table a row of porcelain  bowls. Then he vanished, leaving the  Americans alone In the sanctuary.  They drew togeiher and moved nearer the Idol. Down in the radiance cast  by banging brouze lamps their momentary depression fled, aud they examined with Interest the rich carvings  and inlaid work within tlie great niche.  As they lingered the silence seemed  to close in about them like a wall, and  ���������with one accord they turned toward  the 'door, but the doorway was obscured in heavy swirliDg clouds of Incense, and through the blur they could  . scarcely discern each other's pale features.  Ayers opened his mouth to speak,  but the words were never uttered, for  at that Instant a low. sighing whisper  stirred the silence until the very air  oeemcd to vibrate with its Intensity of  sorrow and then died a way.  The two Amerlcnns scowled at the  Impassive Idol In tbe niche, as If seeking some explanation of the mysterious  sound and the strange Influence that  seemed to rob them of all vitality���������to  leave them helpless and Inert before  the inscrutable face.  ' Between the feet of the squatting  pod was a small Jiowl of some strange  substance In the. form'of Ihe beautiful  red lotus flower of the east. Iu turn  they touched It with iheir fingers and  admired Its beauty. When It was'  ngalu on Ihe altar their gaze clung to  it. nnd as they looked the petals seemed to exJMind and float on lho misty  vapor as on some quint, gray bosomed  lake. Again the long shin swept over  them nnd with 11 a breath of exquisite  perfume from (lie loMis flower.  With n mighty effort Longwood tore  his gaze nway from the flower and  made toward the plnce where he believed (he door to be. Ayers followed  with laborious punting breaths as one  who battled against heavy waves.  Bolid walls evaded their eager searcb-  alwayy the ctirluig. clinging vapor, receding, advancing In larger billows un  t.U. choking and gasping, they found  themselves imi-e more nt the feet of  tli** god. where petals of tbe lotus flower writhed and twisted like tongues ot  rosy flame.  Once more tho strange whispering  sign swept over them, a sigh heavy  with ominous foreboding. It died  uway and wns repeated, and then fell  tbe oppressive silence.       ^  Ayers clutched his companion's arm.  "if it comes once more I shall go mad,"  he breathed hoarsely.  "it will come once more. There Is  tlic name, you know���������the Temple of  the Five Sighs. There must be one  more." Long wood's voice was tense  with restrained emotion.  And so they listened in the silence.  Lester. I owe you an apology for  doubting your experience in the temple. If it was anything like ours"���������  He shuddered and threw himself into  a chair.  "How did you guess we had been  there?" asked Longwood, with a  strange dread In his tone.  Lester swung open a door on the Inner side of which a mirror was paneled. In its surface they saw reflected Ayers' flaxen head and pale face  and Long wood's jet black hair with a  single white lock on the forehead.  "I knew by that!" said Lester gravely.   "And���������let me see your hands!"  The two men held out their hands,  palms upward.  On the thumb and forefluger of each  right hand was a small blood red  stain shaped like the petal of a red  lotus flower.  "You can't obliterate it," continued  Lester, with .a note of pity In his  voice. "It is the lotus mark, and every man who has laid profane hands  ou the sacred bowl will carry that  mark to his grave, and It will be an  early grave, too. unless one can cover  It up. That Is one way to avoid the  espionage of those who avenge. The  other way"��������� He paused, and his voice  lowered.  "The other way?" asked the two men  eagerly.  "Is to leave the country, to clear  out forever, and yet sometimes vengeance follows unless one covers the  mark!" He moved to the cupboard  and took down a bottle of some liquid  and poured a little on bis handkerchief. He rubbed the palm of his  right band and there sprang Into view  a small and perfect flower of the red  lotus.  "We merely touched it and went  down into hades!" breathed Ayers  heavily.   "And you���������you"���������  "I held It In my hand and went still  farther," said Lester coolly as he replaced the bottle and took down another one containing a milky substance. With a small sponge he covered the palm of his baud, nnd the red  flower faded under a uniform flesh  tint. "Here, bold out your hands," he  added. "Water will not harm this covering. Time will wear It off,' and it  must be renewed. I will give-you tho  recipe. We who use it call It our 'life  preserver.'   It will he j*ours too."  "Why do they leave the blasted  thing exposed like that? Why isn't  there some warning that it must not  be touched?" demanded Ayers excitedly as the red stain vanished from his  fingers.  Lester smiled. "The temple is not  for uninvited foreign devils to enter  save at their own risk. Jf you had  been warned of its malevolent influence, would you have touched the red  lotus?"  Tbe two men nodded assent, and  Longwood asked, with a curious hesitation:  "What are the force and the���������the  sigh? What Is the explanation?"  Lester crossed the room nnd leaned  from the window Into the darkness of  the garden. Presently he turned toward them, and his voice was low and  strained.  "Only  one   roan   ever   learned   the  truth about that.   He was my friend.  And before he could Impart his knowl-  'edge  to  others"���������     He  paused  and  ���������gain looked Into the night  "Yea!" prom pled Ayers. j  "He. died." flnished Le������ter quietly.   ;  Crueltiss to Cattle.  The cruel and senseless game of  cattle-maiming and driving shows no  abatement in Ireland. The other clay  one of those raids took place on the  lands-of Miss Summerville, about one  mile from Gal way City. Until last  autumn Mr. Milling of Gahvay held  twenty-five or thirty acres of the land  for grazing purposes, but the United  Irish League compelled him to surrender his tenancy. The land was  then taken by -n small farmer in the  district. Although the whole district  was patrolled by police, the sheep and  tliirty head of cattle were driven from  the farm; many of the tails of the  latter were severed and left lying in  tlie fields.  ever heard of a "writ of extente." It  was ono of those nuzzling legal terms,  the origin of which seems lost in tlie  mists of antiquity.  And this is how it came to be resuscitated, and obtain u world-wide  boom* A Mrs. Pridgeon, who keeps a  small shop in the Thames-side resort  of Teddingtoii, received $1,500 from  an army captain, who died owing the  1TTT.,      , ..

Now, instead of ask-  'We vo been  there, ! ing Mrs- p,-idgeon for the money, and,  Insufficiently Protected  Mary had been greatly interested in  watching the men in hor grandfather's  orchard putting bands around the  fruit lives, and asked a great many  questions.  Some, weeks later, when in the city  with her mother, she noticed a gentleman with a mourning band around  his sleeve.  "Mamma," she asked, "what's to  keep them from crawling up his other  arm?"  if she refused to pay, suing her in  the ordinary way, the Treasury quartered an official on the lady, with  instructions to keep an eagle eye on  the shop-till, and extract five shillings a day from the takings until  tlie sum owing was paid.  They were proceeding under a process which dates back to the time ol  Magna Charta, and which specially  reserves to the King the right to recover immediately any debt in danger of being lost.  Therefore, a jury was solemnly  sworn���������not to try the merits of tbe  case, bear in mind, but simply to  decide if Mrs. Pridgeon's goods were  worth $750. And it was not until several questions were asked in Parliament,* and a legal protest raised  against the injustice of any Englishwoman being denied the right of trial  by jury, that the Treasury man suspends annexing $1.20 a day.  It wants a great mind to grasp a  hundredth part of the anomalies of  Britain's costly law. One unfortunate litigant recently told Judge Fdge  at Lambeth County Court that he  once brought an action in the High  Court to recover $1,000.

A remarkable fish story comes from  County Coven, Ireland. Here it is:  Two anglers, resting leisurely in a  small boat near the mouth of the  River Finn, saw an enormous fish  approaching them from Lough Erne.  They could see its back above the  water as it ploughed along the surface, raising great waves on each  side. They quickly pulled their boat  aside, but the fish gave chase, and  was quickly alongside. Plunging on  the surface at a furious rate, it appeared to be fully ten feet long, with  proportionate girth, and a very large  head. Scared beyond measure, the  men, Francis and Philip McDon-  augh, shot into a weedy place  whence they watched the monster  dash up the river to a small deep  lake, where it disappeared. The  brothers say it was unlike in size and  shape any fish they ever saw. Daily,  since the occurrence, the river bank  has been crowded with people watching for its reappearance.

BROKEN HEALTH  BRINGS WRINKLES  How All Women Can Preserve Good Health and  Good Looks  Too many women and girls look  old long before they should. In nine  cases out of ten it is .a matter of  nealih. Work, worry, confinement in-  uoors and lack of exercise cause the  health to run down. Then faces become-thin and pale; lines and wrink.  les appear, there are headaches, back-  aches and a constant feeling of tiied-  ness.  Women and girls who icel well look  well. Therefore improve your health  and you w.ll look better. It is a  fact that thousands of Canadian women and girls owe tlie robust health  ihey enjoy to Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. Tn'ey feel well and enjoy life  as only a healthy person can.  The simple' reason for this is that  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make njw,  rich, red biood, which strengthens all  the vital organs, brings brightness to  the eye, a glow of healt.i to the  cheek, anJ bracing strength to every  part of the body. Mrs. Warren  Wright, Una, Sask., says: "I feel  that 1 owe a debt of gratitude to  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that nothing  I can say in their favor will fully repay. 1 was so reduced in health and  strength that 1 was hardly able to  walk at -all, and could do no work  whatever. My blood was so thin and  watery that my lips and finger tips  resembled those of a corpse. I had  aimoot con ta:it he..dac!ie-, and the  smallest exertion would set my heart  palpitating violently, and often I  would drop in a faint. Nothing I  did seemed to help nie in tlie least,  and I felt to far gone tliat I never  expected to recover my'health. I was  in this critical condition when I read  in a newspaper of a cure in a case  like mine through the use of Dr Wil-  Hams' Pink Pills and I decided to  try them. I got a half dozen boxes  and before I used them all there was  a great change in my condition. My  appetite returned, the color began to  come back to my lip* and face, and  my strength was increasing. I continued the use of the Pills for some  time longer and they restored me to  the pink' of perfect health. While  using the Pills I pained twenty  pounds in weight. My cure was  made in tlic summer of 1909, and I  am now enjoying bett.r health than  ever before."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will do for  other weak and worn wom?n just  what they did for Mrs. Wright, if  they are given a fair trial.

Never were the ups and downs of  a music-hall artist's life more pitifully illustrated than in'the case of  Mme. Senia, at one time ,world:fam-  ous as "the Witch of the Air," who  has just died in an infirmary in London. ' In private life Mme. Senia was  Mrs. Hall, and at the time of her  death she was 69. In her time she  was the famous tight-rope walker  and trapeze artist. She was the  central attraction of all the big circuses, and of her the theatrical boast  of "appearing before the crowned  heads of Europe and Asia" could he  said with a large amount of truth,  for she traveled extensively, and appeared in most of the big cities of  the world. '' She performed before  Queen Victoria, and also before King  Edward and Queen Alexandra when  they were Prince and Princess of  Wales. As "Witch of the Air" she  was known everywhere, and one of  the late King's horses, it will be recalled, bore that name. Through no  fault of her own, Mme. Senia lost all  the money she had massed, and for  the past 15 years has passed through  most/ terrible vicissitudes. Those  who knew her speak of her as a good  woman, and commend highly her integrity and her zest for work. She-'  sustained a very bad accident, and  had to give up her work in the air,  and from that time evil days fell  thick upon her.  Her later days were made brighter  and   happier   by    the   unobstrusive  generosity of Mrs. Lawrence and her  daughter,   Miss    Vesta   Victoria.    It  seems that .the little son of some people whose premises backed on to Albert-mews,  near Clapham   road,   was  in the  habit of   throwing   away   remains of food.   And one day an old  lady came up to him, begging that he  should give it to her for her dogs.  The little fellow did so, and he watched.   He saw the old lady eat the be.-t  part of   the   waste food,   and it   so  touched him   that he   went   to   his  mother and told her of   the incident,  praying her that each   day he might  give   the  old  lady  some food.    This  the little fellow did  for many dnys.  Then one day an old lady was   discovered by a local green-grocer to be'  lying stiff and almost frozen to death  in  a stable.    He   took   her   to   his  house, placed her before the fire, and  gave  her   warm   food.    These   facts  came to the knowledge of Mrs. Lawrence  and  Miss  Vesta  Victoria,  and  they recognized that the old lady oi  tlie  mews  and  the  stable   was   ,the  famous tight-rope walker whose name  once  was   a household   word.   -They  discovered, too, that Mme. Senia for  many years had earned a precarious  living    by   taking   performing   dogs  round   "the   streets.     She   had   four  beautiful dogs, who were passionately  attached to her, and she saw that the  animals had food even if she starved  horse.] f-    Both   Miss   Vesta   Victoria  and her mother were much  touched  by the stress of the old lady's circumstances,  and they saw that she  was  cared for and wanted for nothing to  the day of her death.   The rent of her  room  and the rent of tlie stable for  her dogs were paid for her.   For the  past month Mme. Senia had been lying ill at Lambeth Infirmary, and before she died she begged Mrs.- Lawrence to see that her faithful canine  companions'   should    be    destroyed,  with the exception of one,  and that  one   she   asked   Mrs.   Lawrence   to  keep.    "I cannot bear to think that  they may not get a good   home, and  it is better they should be destroyed,"  she said.    The dog retained by Mrs.  Lawrence is Pigeon, a clever animal  who can turn all sorts of somersaults.  Afe Unwisely ?

A curious cock-fighting incident is  reported from Clenullin, a remote  district in County Derry, Ireland.  Arrangements wore made for a tournament, and a large crowd attended  from the surrounding towns. "Sport"  was in full swing when a small force  of police appeared on the scene. The  crowd reasoned with the constables,  and warned them not to be too officious, and then left for another  spot. The police followed, and were  compelled to sit down and watch  the next three battles as spectators.  Eventually reinforcements arrived,  and after a small bat������*!e the crowd  was dispersed, and some of the fighting bird owners arrested.-  Fingers Betrayed Him.  The use of finger prints as an aid  to the detection of criminals was  shown in a remarkable manner at  Dublin, Ireland, recently, when a  prisoner named Keegan was sentenced to five years' imprisonment  for breaking into a church.

The head of that department said  that about 150,000 finger prints had  passed through his hands- and. no  two had ever been found alike.

GEEENWOOD,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA.  HE IS A BIG MAN.N  BEEF AND DAIRY TYPES  Prof, W. B. Richards, of tho North,  Dakota Agncultuial colLge, speaks  mtoie-jtingly relative to types of beef  and dairy cattle.  "Many fanners continue to raiso  cattle lor maiket fur beef pmposes  fiom stock that -do not possess any  b.ood of the beef bieed, and consequently they lack what is known as  the beef typo. It is impossible to  pioduce beet economically fiom cattle  of tho dany type, oi even fiom cattle  that poosess any considerable amount  of this blood. To produce an animal  ot beef type it is neces&aiy to use the  beef bieuls of c.ttie, such as the  Shoi thorns, HerrJoids, Abeidocn-  Angus and Galloways. Cattle of this  bleeding put on flesh very much more  lapidly and of a betcei quality.  A beef animal could bo described  in a geneial way as a low down compact blocky animal. He must have'a  short blocky head, a wide breast, a  deep wide chest, a broad neck, a good  spring of ribs, heavy full thighs. He  must have a' pliable mellow skin, for  this quality indicates a good fleshing  tendency.  Tlie points that a cow should possess- if   adapted   to   economical   milk  production    are    quite    the  opposite  iroin what is seen in the beef animal.  -The daiiy cow possesses a long face,  thin- slender neck, a sharp projecting  *- shoulder.    She  is  not  very   wide  in  the chest, but her capacity of chest is  due to her depth which is greater in  proportion to' her size than you will  , find in the beef animal.   She possesses large barrels   which   indicates a  good capacity for d gesting her food.  Her'depth   here   should   exceed her  .depth in any other   p.rt!o:i   of  the  body.    A   dairy  cow   should  have -a  good width at the hips.    Hor thighs  should be lean and free from muscling.   She should be open between her  thighs.  Much attention should be given the  udder of the dairy cow���������a large udder   ������s ;   more winding and blanching they are  the better the indication. The veins  do not cany milk, as many think,  but carry the blood from the udder  to the body, and the more blood that  passes through the udder the more  milk thcie is produced bscause, the  milk is produced from the blood.

Canadian  Surgeon   Honored.  . Dr. Alexander Hugh Ferguson, one  of tlie best known of Chicago's physicians, and a popular ex-Canadian,  was recently elected president of the  Chicago Medical Society in a most  keenly contested 'election. Dr. Ferguson is a native of Manilla, Ont.,  where he was born in 1853. He was  educated at Rockwood Academy and  Manitoba College, and began his medical studies under Dr. John H. O'Don-  nell at Winnipeg, in 1877. He took  a course in the medical * college of  Trinity University, becoming honor  graduate, M.D., CM., of Trinity University. He spent part of'his time,  soon after his graduation, in visiting  "various American hospitals and in  taking a special course at Koch's laboratory, Berlin. He entered' upon the  practice of his profession at Buffalo,  N.Y., in 1881, but soon after returned  to Winnipeg, where he practiced until 1894. at the same time being largely instrumental in founding Manitoba  Medical College,.and was chosen first  president of the Manitoba Branch of  the British Medical Association. Since  1894 he has been an eminent member  of the medical profession in Chicago.  He was induced to go there as professor of surgery in the Post-Graduate  Medical School, and in 1900 was elected to the position he now holds as  professor of clinical surgery in the  College" of Physicians and Surgeons,  the medical department of the Illinois  State University. Dr. Ferguson wa3  notified not long ago that he had been  awarded a comA.andership in the Order of Christ of Portugal, the highest  decoration that King Carlos of that  country can bestow on any one outside  of royalty.  A Careful  Lover.  A Canadian farmer living near Toronto, is fortunate enough to possess  a hired man from Scotland who is  sober, honest and industrious. The  latter recently confided to his employer the fact of his attachment to a  lassie who is earning her own living  in one of the city shops.  "Jessie's a fine young woman," said  the canny Scot. "Sho doesua expec'  me to spend much money on fulish-  ncss. If you will believe mo, I've  been courtin' Jessie for two years  and all that timo I've spent but a  dollar and a half on the lassie. Eh,  but she's a sensible girl!"  Not many comic operas or boxes of  chocolates, to say nothing of a lavish  display of violets, could have come  out of that extremely moderate expenditure.  Thrilling Hunt Without Rifles In tru  Porcupine.  Little imagination is required to as-  -sociate Cobalt with stirring deeds of  adventure, and the word restriction is  one that would seem to have lost its  bearing when applied to such a place.  Yet restrictions there are, and of a  rather peculiar sort, when the nature  of the place is considered. According  to the game laws, prospectors are forbidden to carry weapons. Now, the  Cobalt district might almost be described as a place where emergency  is the rule, so that the restriction i������  a scuous one, and not only in regard  to the danger to life, but in regard  to the cost of living, because, in spite  of the fact that moose and other game  animals are plentiful, the "protection" of them raises tho price of meat  materially.  Some entertaining stories are told  of tlie unexpected and umvelcome  visits of Mr. Bruin to the prospectors'  camps. On one occasion recently he  mado a nocturnal call upon the preserve of George Grogan and his partner in the Porcupine, and literally  clean up the grub supply. The partner was despatched for more provisions, and while Grogan was in sole  charge of the fort the bear repeated  his complimentary visit. Giving up  all thought of a romantic death,  George hastily got the pack sacks together and spent 'the remainder of  the night in tho canoe in midstream.  S-uch an undignified Tetreat would,  ol course, liavo been quite unnecessary had Grogan been provided with  a rifle and the right to use it.  A -party of three, including a  Frenchman, engaged upon assessment  work had a similar experience while  camping. The distance of the camp  to the place where they were operating was about a mile. They were in  the habit of taking their grub with  them, but one day they took a chance.  It proved fatal, for in their absence  Mr. Bruin called and swept the board.  A pot of rice left hanging over the  fire was included in the feast. On  the day following this clearance two  of the party were sent for provisions  to Gowganda, , bringing back with  them thirty pounds of bacon and a  largo quantity of other foodstuffs.  At nightfall all the goods were hung  up in a tree and believed by their  trustees to be in a safcplace. However, Bruin landed it all right and  demolished every scrap of it.. Stimulated by. his success the bear would  call almost nightly, and the Frenchman beosoie .' so frightened.-that he  would not go to bed, but used,to sit  up all night. The party always kept  a fuse-and cap ready for bruin when  lie put his head in through the flap of  the tent. Recognizing that such a  state of affairs could not continue, a  plan was devised to rid themselves  of the unsolicited attentions of Mr.  Bruin.  Felling a heavy pole they attached  a noose to it in the form of a snare,  and after adding a piece of meat to  it they felt that the victory was theirs.  Partial success was awarded the first  attempt. Mr. Bruin injudiciously  placed his paw in the noose, but with  wonderful woodcraft he climbed a.  cedar and was able to release his  pinioned limb even while his enemies  were trying vainly to belabor him  with an axe. After this failure the  party removed the cedar and prepared  for real war. They carefully spliced  the handle of a huge carving knife on  a pole and made up their minds that  the torment must cease.  Failing to regard his lesson, Bruin  came again and got entangled in the  snare. Once the party got him sus-  ������������������������������������ended tlie work of execution was divided. While one attended io the pole  another got the bear to elevate his  forepaws and box, and another did  desperate work under the belt with  the knife.  The bear was literally hacked to  pieces, but .the fight was a long one,  the bear being game to the core. He  was so weakened, however, that the  man with the knife was at length able  to reach the heart. Needless to say,  bruin was skinned arid eaten, and so  atoned in a very personal way for his  misdeeds. :  Such encounters, while -they may  appeal'to the venturesome, are not  to;the prospectors' liking, and it does  seem only reasonable that the men  should be allowed to protect themselves against any such risks when  out .prospecting. Big game is plentiful, and if taken without undue wast*  should bo alowed the men in the  woods.  Jerusalem. -  Canadian  Missionary Tells of Habits  of  the  Kachins.  Full of interest is tlie story of a  Canadian missionary's work among  the Nat worshippers of Burma as told  by Rev. F. J Ingram of Broekville,  Ont., who is returning to Canada by  way of London, after seven years  spent among the Kachins, a warlike  tribe who live near the Chinese frontier, says Alex. Pringle, ^writing from  London to The Toronto World. Thij  race has no written language; tha  people are very poor and according to  their belief are afflicted by evil spirits,  The reasons they give for this trinity  of misfortunes are very amusing  Nat (spirit) worship forms the total  sum of a Kachin's life and tins bad  luck race attribute every unfortunato  happening to the baneful influence of  the spirit.   When a misfortune small  or great happens to a Kachin it is'to  him a sign that the Nats aie displeased with him and that sacrifice is necessary to avert further disaster.   He  immediately goes,to a priest who decides- what must be done to appease  the wrathful spirit.    The propitiation  usually is the sacrifice of a bullock or  buffalo.   The animal is sacrificed and  after a weird ceremony is carved up;  the priest takes the best portion** distributing to the people what remains,  Teaching a new religion  to   people  like these mu������t be very difficult,   It  is hard for most of us to divorce ourselves from early training" and consequent  prejudices  and   to   adjust  our  minds in a fair attitude to new conditions.    And  the   inability    to  adapt  themselves to a new teaching is made  more difficult to the Kachins by reason of the length  of tenure  of" their  old belief,   and   tlie   hard   task   of, a  missionary can   b'e   well   understood  when the reasons which the Kachins  give for the present unfortunate condition of the race,  are  related.   The  tradition is this:  When the creation of the world was  finished the Great Creator summoned  the four races to appear before him.  ���������The Kachins, Shans, Chinese and Bur-  mans answered the summons and the  chief of each race received a book of  laws which contained their language  and a solution to every possible problem of life. The book was written on  leather. y  The tribes dispersed. On the way  home the Kachins grew very hungry  and no food being available they cooked'the leather book and ate it.  Shortly after the Creator again commanded the races to appear before  him. Now the three other races had  not destroyed their books and by referring to them found that the Creator intended to distribute great  wealth. So they made big baskets in  which to receive the tokens of good  will. The "Kachins did not take any  baskets. The distribution was made  and the Kachins having nothing in  which to carry away the gifts went  home empty handed.  A third order was issued. Experience had taught the Kachins, they  thought a further distribution of  wealth was to be made. They made  large hampers and every man went  joyfully to the meeting place. Not so  with the other races.. They, learned  from the books that evil spirits were  on the program. They went few in  number and without baskets.  Of course the Kachins received all  the evil spirits. This did not end  their misfortunes.. Evil spirits are all  right if they can be kept in a closed  hamper. But, the journey w;as long;  the loads were heavy -and frequent  rests were necessary on the homeward  journey. At each resting place they  deposited a few Nats to lighten their  load and this is. the reason that their  whole world is inhabited by evil  spirits.  Mr. Ingram's house was six days'  journey from the nearest point of  civilization. Sometimes for six months  he would not see a white face. His  nearest ."neighbors" were two Canadians engaged in the same work, Dr.  Harper of Woodstock and Dr. Kelly  oi Toronto.  \l PAIN FOR YEAR  "FRUIT-A-TIVES" BRJNGS BELIEF*  -���������������.!*���������"  MRS.

The writer hails from Emo, and explains that he has been busy fire-rang-  for  some  time,   and  asks  "Mr.  "On all sides wo see the evidences of  Bki'ptlclsm,   which  often   reaches  the  level of ridicule, for Ihlngs which we  and  those  who have gone  before regarded us sacred." says a   Palestine  letter In a Civrinan paper, "but here in  Jerusalem'the shocks to our reverence  are   less   frequent   and   less   severe.  Come, hither quickly, then, all ye who  would see It before the march of modernity  sweeps over  the sacrod  city  and before its atmosphere suffers still  greater changes.  To the train way and  other   things   modern   electric   light,  power and heating are soon to be add-  ������'d by a French coinpany. The Waters  of the river Jordan, which fall more  than 000 feet near the Lake of Galilee,  will furnish the power.

Twenty-five cents buys 2 lbs. of steak  In St. Hyacinthe, Que., 11-4 lbs. in  Toronto, and only 1 lb. in Vancouver,  according to a tsble showing beef  prices in May, compiled by the Labor  Department at Ottawa. Generally  speaking the further west you go, or  the bigger the city, the higher the  price of beefsteak. There are decided  exceptions, however. For instance, in  Glace Bay, N.S.,- beefsteak was 22c.  as against 15c. at Westville, N.S. Halifax folks paid 24c. for their steak as  against 22c. paid by the people of St.  John, N.B. Unless there is some error in figures, or some clear difference  , in quality in different places, the anomalies shown by the table mean rank  injustice which the people affected  should inquire into. For instance, why  should beefsteak be sold in Edmonton  at:15c. in Calgary at 20c, and in Re-  gina at 25c? Or, why should Toron-  tonifins_pay 20c to 22c.while Hamil-  tonians'get off with 16c to 18c? Or,  why should St. Thomas folks be charged 22c while Londoners, just next  door, pay ISc.? Perhaps the worst  case of all is 18c. per lb. in New Westminster, B.C., and in Vancouver, at  the other end of the.trolley line, 25c,  which is within a fraction of 40 per  cent, jnore.' The next lowest price  to St. Hyacinthe is at Charlbttetown,  P.E.I., whose fortunate citizens breakfast on steak at 14c per lb. Fourteen  places are reported as paying 20c. for  beefsteak in May. These places are  mainly the larger cities, including Toronto and Montreal. Locality seems  to make little difference, for, besides  the central places named,'this twenty-  cent list includes such widely separated places as Moncton, N.B., and Victoria, B.C.

Shop, Greenwood,  TAILOR,  Has Confidence,  A letter from Phoenix   to  Spokane Review says:  No better evidence of the continence which the management of  the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and Power company reposes in its big Phoenix   copper  producer is required, than the character of the structures now being  built and the equipment installed  to replace what was recently destroyed   by   fire,    notwithstanding  some 8,000.000 tons of oro have  already   been   shipped - from   the  property.     The new works will be  more complete and up to date in  every    particular   than   the   old.  Steel, brick and concrete are the  materials employed in their construction.  The electrical transformer station, which supplies power for the  company's many miles of tram  system, will be completed in a fow  days. A fire-proof car repair, shop  has already been furnished,' and a  concrete foundation is laid for a  brick machine shop, which will I e  modern in equipment throughout.

Talking about the sad affair, the  Stroller in the White Horse Star  has the following:  Before Silas took to golf pants,  cigarettes and hootch the Stroller  frequently   interviewed   him    on  matters of great moment.    Silas  was one of those who saw sermons  in stones, books in running brooks  and  could deduce from the stars  and  the feathers on  the feet   of  grouse.    He could tell in the spring  if the preceding winter had  been  unusually cold and he could also  prognosticate from the bark of a  tree whether it w;ould boar willow  or birch lea yes.    And now he is  reducing fuel on the crown  woodpile.     Oh,  tern pores,  Oh,  mores.  Think of it.    The last of a line of  uncoiiquered and unwashed Indian  chiefs reduced to common labor.  He would   not  in   former  years  deign  to light his own pipe but  would have numerous squaws contesting for the honor.    Worse still,  in jail he will be compelled to use  soap aud will thereby lose the accumulation  pf   rnauy   years   now  rolled away in the scroll of Time  and reposing ou the shelf of Eternity.
