What constitute.,   the   smallest

mining camp  northeast of Joplin,
Mo.    The two sons of Harry Kill-
ingswortn,   respectively  aged 7 to
10     years old,    persuaded     their
father, who ownH  a  lease in that
camp, to let them have a play lease
of 10ft Fq. out of the corner of his
leose, and let them"play working
it.    This he did and made for them
a toy windlass, whose capacity wof
limited to a  watpr backet full of
dirt at a time.    This  was duty pet
up on the lease and the boys started  a little shaft about 3�� feet in
diameter.     They  carried on their
operations in   eveiy respect   just
like their father did, only  a short
distance awa\T,  and  at a depth of
about  2i  feet., the  boys actually-
struck "pay dirt"  in a  great  silicate of zinc ore.    The boys hoisted
this soft ore by  the  bucketful and
took   ont  the  first   week   f>   wash
tubs full of this  pay  dirt.    Their
father helped them to get  it down
to the creek and showed them Low
to wash it, where  he  had his own
wash place, and   kept  the mineral
[seperate  and   sold   it   for  them at

The name eider comes from Iceland, and is pronounced as if spelled ider. The ider is an ocean
dnck. In size it is between our
common duck and goose. It is a
bird that lives iu arctic regions.
If you look on the map of Europe,
and find Spitsbergen, which lies
beyond Norway, you will see
where many of these ducks, or
eiders as they are called live. In
America they are found in Labrador, Greenland, and other far
northern regions.
The eider is valuable because
of its very fine, soft down. The
mother plucks this from her breast,
and makes her nest of it. Then
when she is sitting upon her eggs
and has to leave them to find food,
she covers the eggs with more
down, to keep them warm. The
father eider never feeds the mother
when she is sitting on her eggs,
but lets her hunt her meals for
herself. When eider hunters rob
the nest again and again, and the
mother has used all her own down,
the father will pluck that from his
breast to give for the nest.
The down is a soft gray in color.
It is so very light that three-
fourths of an ounce will fill a very
large hat, while two or three
pounds may be crushed Into a ball
that one can hold in the hand.
Since, an eider's nest yields only
one-half pound in a whole year,
you can readily understand why a
real eider down quilt costs a good
deal of money.
The men who raise eiders for
money dig holes in rocks facing the
ocean, and in large numbers the
eiders make their nest in these.
Before the eggs are laid, the owners rob the nest of its soft lining.
The mother makes another and
another, and she is robbed every
few days. The owner knows when
to cease, and at last he allows her
to lay her eggs and raise her young

The low postal rates granted by
tbe Canadian postoffice to publishers of newspapers, ia abused by
.many of the big daily papers. To
mail subscribers many .of these
papers are sold below cost, in order
that the publishers may obtain advertising rates based upon their
actual paid up circulation. The
majority of the daily papers in
Canada are simply advertising
mediums, or organs for political
rings and big corporations. Their
editorials on many subjects are of
no value, being colored to suit the
power behind the overdraft. Their
news items are often written to
suit their own game without regard to truth. The postoffice
should not be used as a cheap medium for boosting advertising literature.
In North Vancouver this month,
a preacher requested the council in
that city to stop Sunday evening
concerts. He should have applied
to Bowser. The time is now opportune to get anything you want
from the government. Although
all music is sacred, the parson
should endeavor to have the birds
quit singing on Sunday. When
one is in church on the Sabbath
listening, for instance, to a sermon
upon what churchianity has done
for Europe, it is extremely annoying to have some rude and irreligious hen, on the outside of the
sacred edifice rise up, and sing
that old egg song, in an exultant
and cracked soprano voice. All
these and kindred noises should be
stopped, at least for one day a
week. If it cannot be done by
moral suasion and temperate argu^
ment let ub appeal to our legislature as Hoon as we get one. Qaick
action is necessary in order to save
that .North Vancouver parson from
getting worse.
Some years ago a moral wave hit
AWritt, and the harlots were
driven ont of that city. These
women who toil but do not spin,
took refuge on a bill just outside
the city limits,  and in plain view
of the public schools. Iu due
time an order-in-couueil was passed by the provincial government
giving the city of Merrit police
control over these female dealers
iu commercial love, and they were
regularly hauled into the police
court, and fined in order to help
pay the expenses of the city government. Now the clergymen
come to the front and point out
that the fining of these women
more than twice is illegal. This
is a terrible state of affairs in a
civilized community. Here is the
beautiful little city of Merritt acting the municipal pander, by extracting illegally blood money from
the unfortunate victims of the
double standard. Paving its
streets and paying its police, in
part, as it were, with tear-stained
money from passion's fallen blossoms. 01), Justice! Will you
never cut the cataracts out of your
eyes? The city of Merritt should
pay back the money illegally obtained from these women, and turn
over the jurisdiction of this district to the provincial government
where it belonged in the first
place. Although Bowser does not
pay much attention to some legitimate complaints, he should, with
the aid of his "business" government, be able to shut Brewster
out of his upper stope for a few
minutes, and come to the aid of
the parsons in Merritt, and their
heroic efforts to strangle the scar
let devil, and drive Gehenna fur
ther into the woods.
