NELSON,   BKITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   OCTOBER   24,   1891.  $_ A YEAE  A    PES    PBCTUItK   OF    A   WFLL-KXOW.\    PIOStitiK.  I*  P-  One of... the editors of the Seattle Press-Times  has been put ting in a month op two xlpw.ii along  the "-Columbia river, and his letters to his paper  are quite readable. His latest is-"devoted... to  *'Dutch Pete," the well-known proprietor of the  X^ittle Dalles stopping-place.    He says:  "On the Columbia, instead of the ivy-bound  castles whichBuskin deemed so essential to the  poetic ensemble of nature, one has to safcisfy the  invagination with uhehmcked log cmbins, draped  with the 'skins'-of ������������������'wild animals and surrounded  with the labor and weather-worn tools and the  paraphernalia of the pioneer. 7The river winds  rapidly through a high chain of mountains, topped \vith nr and patched with gojden-tinted  buhchgrass. At iniervals truncateo:,0 cones and  stupendous but res stand out fromithe range and  seem to pose as sentinels of the stream. It is  at the base of one of these latter that Pete Ellis-  ton has laid out his ranch, and combined with  1 he duties of farmer the ..diversions/of- merchant  and hotel keeper. 1 make th is distinction because  Pete's chief...employment is .composed of trusting  prospectors and everybod y of -.Caucasian ext.rae-  tion for wchat he may want in the nature of supplies, and -in.feeding ���������'���������every st ragglef or mendicant tourist-'that may chance along the trail.  Though poor in .worldly goods, considering  what a well-trained Yankee miner would have  done with his opxDortunities, he has a wealth of  good repute 'sufficient to elect him to the highest  office, were his yirt ties known outside of Stevens  county and the gulches of the British Kootenay-.  His ppenhandec!nessHs the subject of everyone's  praise, ond,few: neglect to enjoy it;with ; t hafr  relish which is char-acteristic of men who expect  never to make any commensurate return for  benefits received. He fits,to a nicety the extravagant ideal of Seneca's conception of the  man who is too generous to be distiessed  o ver the refinernents of j ust ice, and too grat e-,  ful to be go< d to hiim'elf. Be ewe i:o ci e,  and is the creditor of everyone. And he never  complains about or defames his debtor's either,  since his pride of judgment woiild be derided by  any harsh reflections on those he once trusted.  "Born and brought up on the Swiss frontier  of Baden, he absorbed from the philosophy of  Helvetius the doctrine of nat ural causes, and acquired from the practice of smuggling a democratic detestation of the 'Prussian government.  He was active in the revolution of '47, and,  sought an asylum in the United States after the  affair at Rastatt. The first money he made was  paid him by the soap manufacturers for oil he  skimmed from the Mississippi after the big St.  Louis fire. He went to California, experienced  indifferent luck in the diggings, and followed  the prospecting'tide into Oregon. Here he collapsed from intermittent fever, and taking an  overdose of an India!) remedy, on the.presumption that one could not absorb too'much of a  good thing, he brought upon himself chronic  rheumatism. The virus was driven into his  nether extremities, paralyzing the nerves, and  finally distorting' them. *.-'A constant sufferer  from physical torture for more than 20 years he  has been.-noted' as-one of the most tireless prospectors and workers, where supplies had to be  packed on the back for hundreds of miles, and  evevy privation and hardship known fo mountain life he has endured without, a whimper.  "Pete is perhaps the most blasphemous old-  timer on the Columbia. He can punctuate a  15-minute speech'with enough '-whip-cracking,  epithets to drive a pack train for a month. He  can reel off a pretty good yarn, too. In his day  he was a fine boatman, and has ofteu shot the  rapids. The distance to Marcus, below The  Dalles, is 20 odd miles. The river is in no place  swifter. Pete launched his catamaran one twilight at The Dalles and before the sun set had  landed at Marcus. He gravely tells this story  to illustrate the rapidity of the current and to  demonstrate his own dexterity with the paddle,  and the correctness of it no mere scientific proof  can disturb.    When I suggested that he should  have kept on to Astoria to see the sun rise twice  on the same day, he asked me in dignity, if 1,  by ������������������^, thought he was telling a ^���������- lie, and  the only way I could avoid a rupture of our  friendship was to apologize for not having been  with him to experience such a novel adventure.  "Pete does not think women are fit to live  with men in the mountains.    They  take small  thing  such  as  cooking  and   dishwashing and  chamber work, too seriously to suit him. : The  only one that ever met his idea of the desirable  helpmeet was lady Harvey, who camped near  the ranch 'one evening on a sketching torn.'.  When he went up to her- fireplace,to pay liis respects, he was surprised to find her eating salmon  out of a can. 'But your ladyship can have some  plates if you wish,'said he! "'Oh, no, I thank  you,' she replied. 'I would have to wash the  plates.' 'Ah,' reflects Pete, inrecounting the  experience, 'there was a woman for you *"  ���������>,���������>  'J������IO.K���������"-   "JLOT"    A1505IT. T3SE    SlLVUSSg    SiBXW.  "The following from the Seattle Press-Times of  the 10th is  a  fair  sample of the "rot" that is  printed about the mines in the Kootenay Lake  . .country:..'  ���������:������������������ o .   :- .  Mr. Dunlavv of Victoria said Inst evening: to a Press-  Times reporter, that, mr..-'Hendricks, the Massachusetts  copper capitalist, had told him that he had offered ������1,250,-  COOfor the Silver King and that, the offer had been refused.  Yet the Silver King never yielded a dollar net profit to its  owners. "The Silver King," said mr. Dunlavy, "is without,  doubt the richest mine o>i the American continent. Hull  brothers, who were the locators and Avho are now part  owners, have a trace of India-������ blood in their veins, and are  willing to let the mine lie idle rather than put forth any  vigorous effort to develop it. There is plenty of ore in  sight, and rich ore, too, but it is in a country where there  are no:concentrators and no facilih'esfor transportation.  "Six months after it was located," oonfi'iucd mr. Dunlavy, "it was bonded for ,f20,000. It is still bonded for that  amount and the interest. So much has been said of it that  it is not necessary for me to give a description of the  greatest mine in "the world. It. is the general opinion  'among-���������mining-men that Hull brothers, could live much  better than their ancestors on the one and a quarter million of cash offered them for their mine, and Would greatly  benefit the country by letting-men get hold of the mine  who can develop it." The Silver King is located on Toad  mountain, Kootenai county, B.C.  In the first place, it is very doubtful if a. cash  offer 'has ever been made for the Silver King,  although it is considered one of the biggest  showmigs for a mine in America. The Farrel-  Hendryx party made an offer for it, but not a  cash offer. The mine -has never been bonded to  anyone, and is not now under bond: Hall  brothers, of the original locators and still co-  owners in the property, are white men, and men,,  too, that deserve every dollar they may g;et from  the'sale of the group of claims of which the  Silver Kine: is the best known. The mine is not  only not idle, but has paid out mnrp inniiey for  development work this summer than any other  mine in British Columbia���������one tunnel alone being in over 600 feet. The Silver Kin.a: isa "great  property, and some day will probably take a  high rank among the big dividend payers.  Diidt ���������reek. Properties to l>c Wcirlseil.  The Sea King company, made up of Wisconsin men, among whom are Himner & Ginzk'ey,  bankers at Alma, intend to develop its 4 claims  on Duck creek, in Gont River district, this  winter. The Sea King claim is the best-known  of the 4, and is-reported to be a good showing  for the work done on it. The trail from Duck  creek to Rykerf's, by way of Jap King's, is said  to be an excellent one.  Hall   Oeek   B&aast.  The Slocan excitement docs not seem to affect  the boys over on Hall creek ; they prefer to work  a sure thing, although there may not be millions  in it. The ground on the creek is rich iti spots,  the boys sometimes making an ounce a day to  the man. Harry McMillan came in this week  and sold 14 ounces to Hume fo Co., the result^of  a few days sluicing by 2 men.  TUE ������1AW\X SMISTBtSHT EXttSTEMEST XOT ABATIXCi.  The excitement over the new finds in the Slocan district is hot on the wane, but rather on  the increase. In the fore part of the week Jack  Evans, Jack Buchanan^ Bill Hunter, Billy McKinnon, and Bill Si ihe 6'x: arrived at. Nelson, having "iua&e the trip in and out by way of Kaslo  City. Jack Evans, who is not only a reliable  man, but a man pretl y well acquainted wit h the  Slocan lake section of the country, says he is  sure the new district is a good mineral one, but  would not advise anyone to gO in now to prospect, for the reason that the snow is too deep to  do so to advantage. ; lie also says Slocan lake  is just such another body of water as Upper Arrow lake, even to having a be >ld prom em ory, or  cape .horn, jutting into it from the east. It is  about 40 miles long and from 3 to 7 in width.  He claims that the pass from the north end of  Slocan lake to t he Upper Arrow lake is a low  one and the distance not more than IS miles.  He also gave it as bis opinion that the ore from  the new 'district would come out by way of Slocan river because of the route being all down  hill. The above-named, parties were 2^ days in  going in from Kaslo City and the. same.length  of time, in coming out. Going in, they left the  north fork of Kaslo creek at a point about a  mile a rid a half above the forks, s t ruck due  west across the mountains, an cl came out on the  Slocan slope at the head of Carpenter creek, ,  which is a short distance south of the Hennessy  camp. Coming out, they took the same route.  Evaiis  and Buchanan  started back ti������day,   in  tend ing to  go  in  the same way  again.  They  would take   Indians along  to pack supplies to  last them 2 or 3 weeks:  During the week 5 Or 6 .parties .started up  Slocan river in boats, anionlc others C. P. B-.  engineer Stewart,' G. B.

IS    DRIJNKENNJBSS'". CUKABIE ?  The cure of the drinking habit is one that has  long received '���������attention- from medical ni en/ many  of them being afflicted with the disease. A  doctor named Keeley, at Hwighf, Illinois, claims  to have found the long-searched-for remedy, and  in the last North American Review John Flavel  Norris, a New York journalist of repute, describes his case and the cure obtained at the  hands of dr. Keeley. The following is an extract from his article:  "For 20 years 1 had been a victim of the disease of drink. It seized me at odd times,usually  the .most inopportune, and in spite of all my  struggles would gain the temporary mastery.  Months of peace might pass, but suddenly the  fever would break loose and run riot in my  veins, and I knew that then it must have its  course. I have as much will power as the next  man, but my will was a straw in the grasp of  this horror. Men who have not felt the clutch  of drink as it sweeps through and possesses the  whole system, have no conception of the agony  of thestruggle which the victim makes.  "It was because I had found ho permanent  benefit from seclusions in an asylum or home,  but rather the contrary, because!fretted against  restraint that' could be of no use to a prodigal  drinker, that I was ready to give a fair trial to  the promise made me by dr. Leslie F. -Keeley- of  D wight, Illinois, that he would guarantee me a  cure for my disease. I told him that for more  than 2 months my life had been oiie of entire  sobriety, and asked him if he would undertake  my cure under these circumstances. He replied  that he "would. It was something of an assur-  a nee fo find that his experience of 30 years as a  medical man, and for 20 years as a specialist in  alcoholism, coincided '-with my experience as a  sufferer. His ideas were common sense. My  own diagnosis told me..that my trouble:was a  disease, and I felt it was an insult to medical  science to suppose for a mo ment that no remedy  could be found for it.  "That -dr. Iveeley is an allopathic physician  made no difference to me, for 1 have none of the  current-'-prejudices about schools of medicine.  He laid down the law that I must follow, the  time that I must stay, and insisted, as lie-does  in all cases, on unqualified obedience while in  his hands. But he gained my confidence, not  only by his diagnosis, but from the fact that he  brushed away from the start the musty, superstitious old cobwebs of bolts, bars, and restraints.  The Keeley institute was,- and''is, only an office  to which patients go for treatment and medicine. There are not even official boarding places.  The patient selects his hotel (there is a -tine new  one there now) or his boarding place according  to his taste and means, and is free to select his  own company and amusements and to occupy  his spare time as he sees fit. When I went to  ''.Dwight.'there were barely 100 patients. When  I left at the end. of 6 weeks there were 240 under  treatment. My comrades 'were lawyers, physicians, editors, merchants, judges, an attorney-  general of one of the iiew states of the west, and  an assorted, lot Of state senators. .Without exception they were the brightest body of men I  ever met, and to say that they could meet and  exchange views .daily, without interference and  restraint, and yet be made the victims of a fraud,  is an insult to commen sense!  "The patient's first visit is paid to the office of  dr. Keeley, where his case is stated, and -where  he receives a hypodermic injection in the upper  arm, and there is given him a bottle of bichloride  of gold mixture, a dose of which is to be taken  every 2 hours while awake. The hypodermic,  called in D.wight the :,''shot,'is the supporting-  medicine, which sustains the frame under treatment. Its preparation, and the form in -which  the bichloride of gold is made up for its special  purpose, are dr. Keeley's secret, and it is manifestly absurd for those not in the secret to criticise it. The t reatment is administered 4 times a  day, at 8 A. M., 12 noon, 5 P. M., and 7:30 P. M.,  and for 3 or I weeks usually, though sometimes  a week or two longer, according to the person til  diagnosis made by the doctor from day to day.  If a new arrival needs whisky, it is given to him  in a bottle, and he can have more until he  loathes it, and he returns his unopened bottle to  the doctor. From this point the work of his  physical reconstruction begins. He finds that  the treatment is not a mere tonic, as some  have supposed.    Sometimes his eyesight is  af-  engine com  OIF   TOBOMTO,   OIISTT^IRXO-  MAJTOiAOTUEEKS OP ALL DESCRIPTIONS OP MAKINE AND STATIONAEY  British ColniiiMa7 Brailcli :   520 Cordova Street,  Vanconver.  :       , 0.

Nor is this all. The treatment of Dwight removes such physical ills as are caused directly  by drink. Dr. Keeley?s program promised this,  but I had scarcely been able, to credit it. As a  matter of fact I found myself relieved of 20c  pounds of superfluous flesh, and am the better  for it.  "The physical experience varies in different  cases, hut to each there comes a time at last  when the patient discovers that all weakness  and depression have vanished, and that the fetters of old appetites and habits have fallen away  from him, and he steps out of the darkness of  the wilderness into the full light of day, and  knows that once more he has a man's .strength  to do a man's work among men. * * * No  one who has not been similarly cursed with the  disease of drink can know the joy of the moment  when my cure came to me as a fact. 1 do not  .-believe, I know that I am cured, and am satisfied as to its permanency."

All previous biographies of Parneli accord to Avondale the honor  of his place of birth. O'Conner says he heard  Parneli'state this was incorrect. He was born  at Brighton. Though intensely Irish in sentiment "O'Connor always regarded Parneli in  physique and character���������in character above all  ���������American. A large part of the book is devoted to recent events.

News has just reached Ottawa that Dan Dunn, the old  foreman of construction of the Canadian Pacific on this  section, had been killed while engaged, in railway construction near the "Soo" on the Michigan side. No particulars  have reached Ottawa except that a quarrel arose between  Dan and a man named Harcourt, in the course of which  the latter shot the former through the heart. Harcourt  has been arrested. Tlie deceased was a native of Nova  Scotia and came to this section of the country when the  Canadian Pacific railway construction boomed up. He  was made walking boss by W. H. Worthington, and foreman of construction by IT. Abbott. He was in charge from  Sudbury to Michipicoten.  The above paragraph is clipped from a Van-  cuver paper of the 14th. Dan Dunn is at work  a few miles west of Nelson straightening out  curves on the crookedest railroad, on earth. He  was in Nelson last Saturday evening, and did  not look anything like a corpse.  nsrEiLSOisr^ IB. o.  Does not transact a banking business.  Receives articles for safe keeping.

Fitzstubbs, our gold commissioner, for, his earnest endeavors to cut trails when re-  quired, and. who.sots himself strictly against willful waste  of government money or does not allow himself to be bill-,  lied into countenancing such an outrage and boodle scheme  as the cutting of a trail up the Lardeaux river, when that  money could liave been very usefully em ployed in opening  iiji trails, where they would be of use to the people of the  district, not the bears and other wild animals."  The above is an extract  from a letter to the  Vic f (>r ia, Colo n i st from an an on y mo n s w riter at  Ainsworth.    It is safe to predict that the writer  has had an axe ground  by mr. Fitzstubbs.    No  other person  in  West -Kootenay district could,  truthfiillv state that mr. Fitzstnbbs has taken  any interest in attending to the duties of his  office as gold..commissioner, unless ordering free  miners to uncover in his presence, or forbidding  them  to enter the government offices without  first knocking, or declining to be in any way accommodating when called on for -.'information be  considered attending to the duties of his office.  It is also safe to assume that the writer will not  assert over his own name that tlie cutting of the  Lardeaux  trail  was  either an   "outrage"  or a  '' boodling"  scheme; and   it  is   safe   to   assume  that he cannot mention the name of a single locality   in the district that, is.'now handicapped  through  lack of a trail,  and at the same time  specify the trails mr. Fitzstubbs has had cut,of  his own free will���������unless it be the one up Schroder creek; and it is also safe to assume that the  ������������������writer is one of the class of men, found in all  communities,   who   are   never   content   unless  when stabbing someone in the dark.  The congress of the United Stat es gave the Northern Pacific .-Railway Company the odd sections  in a strip, of hind. 100 miles''wide through Montana  for building its railway. Under the terms of  the grant mineral lands were excluded. The  railroad .company now claims it is entitled to all  the odd-numh^red sections in which minerals  were not ������������������������������������known to exist at. the time the grant  wa s m ad e. T h e pe< >p 1 e o f M out an acontei id that  the title to all lands on. which mineral is discovered, even if the title to the land has passed  from the United States to the railroad company  and from the .railroad company to other purchasers, must revert to the United States and  the land be alone subject to location under the  minnig- la ws. Tw<> years ago a case son 1 ewhat  similar was decided by the privy council of  ���������Great Britain. To aid in building the Canadian  Pacific railway, the province of British Colum bia  granted the Dominion of Canada a belt of land  40 miles wide along the line of the railway in the  province. For a wonder, this belt of land was  not turned over to the syndicate who took  the road off the Dominion government's hands,  and the land still belongs to the Dominion.  Much of it is mineral land. For a time  prospectors,   to   acquire   title   to   claims,   had  to make locations under both the provincial  arid. Dominion mining laws, which were at wide  variance, the provincial government all the time  contending that the province in granting the  land to the Dominion had not parted with ownership in the minerals, or precious metals, and  finally'-.carried a ease to the privy council as the  court of last resort. The privy council sus-  tai n ed the pro vi nee, decidin g th at o w n ership of  the precious metals does not pass with a sale of  land, and that such ownership can only be acquired by discovery. There is the whole question in a nutshell. The Northern Pacific is entitled to the,surface rights of the odd-numbered  sections within its grant, but it is not entitled  to the minerals, or precious metals, that may  ."'afterwards be discovered oa the land.      ,  An   Ottawa   merchant   who   receives   remittances  by express  from  all "parts of  the  Dominion complains that one-fonrth of the money  so  received  is  American   bills  and  silver, and  claims that he is inuch the loser thereby.    Here  in British Columbia American bills and silver  are taken at par at all business houses, banks,  and government offices.    No questionsare asked  and  no  loss accrues to anyone.    Why cannot  the same sensible policy be pursued in eastern  Canada, and in  the adjacent states as  regards  the   money   of   the   two   countries: ". The  bills  issued     by    Canadian     chartered     banks,    although      not    endorsed    by     the     Dominion,  are  considered   as   safe   almost   as   the    bills  issued  by   the   national   banks  of the   United  States.     The silver  coins  of   Canada,  and  the  silver coins of the  United  States should  pass  current in both countries, as t hey contain a like  amount of silver.    No good reasons -can be given  for exact ing the enormous discounts of ten exacted from travelers by sharks in the two countries.    Express companies do not" charge'more  than 1 per cent for carrying money from one  trade center to another, and in no part of Canada or the United States should banks charge  above 2 per cent for exchanging Canadian money  for United States -'.money,   or   vice   versa,   yet.  travelers are of ten compelled to pay a discount  of 20  per cent on silver and almost as much on  bills. _____  "Does if cost a steamboat company more to  haul ISO tons of freight on a barge than 50 tons  on a steamboat?" is a question the lake country  business men are asking each other now that the-  Mara line has raised the rate on all the through  freight it handles between Revelstoke and Robson. Merchants at Nelson had goods shipped  from Winnipeg, with rhe freight prepaid to Nelson, yet on its arrival at Nelson back charges of  from .$60 to $80 a car had to be paid 'before the  goods would be delivered. The steamboat people give as a reason for the raise that the stage of  ���������water.in'the Columbia, will not permit them U)  load'their steamboat and that the freight has to  be towed down on a barge. Bub the steamboat  .people-must admit that the barge carries fully 0  times as much as'is usually put on the boat, and  that they are at little additional expense in running the barge'. It conies all the harder0 on our  merchants,, because the raise is made without  notice and at a. time when they are getting in  their winter (6 months) supplies. Perhaps the  steamboat company 'will not always have a  "cinch" on the business of the lake country.  L  can be obtained for small amounts, loaned on short time  and well secured.

In the fore part of this month a party of liutiters registered at a well-known Nelson hotel. It  was given out by the proprietor that a couple of  Italian princes were in the party, and the board-"-  >ers  at that hostelry during  the   party's  stay  ^magmed themselves just a few notches higher  Vm /ttte social  scale than   their  associates who  boarded at less favored hotels.    The landlord's  report was bat half true.    There was but one  Italian in the party, and while not a prince of  mWnl   blood, he   is  of a fain11 v that take hieh  rank   in  Italy ��������� his father   being syndaco,   or  mayor, of the city of Rome.    "Prince" Tea no,  as he was called by the landlord, came to British  ���������"���������:;fs;i'oiti.ai:b;ia in Augustlast, having for companions  'Nlf Daito'n, an old hunter and guide of Clark's  .Fork, Montana, and. Freclerick Schiebler, a Grer-  mah,  who is a noted lion  hunter.    The party  killed bear on Duncan river, mountain sheep on  the Lardeaux, goat on the headwaters of Kaslo  creek, 'deer on Slocan lake, and report the mountainous country traveled through a.-great one  for big game and a sort of paradise for hunters  fond of sport.'   On the trip they ran out of -pro-..  visions and had to live for, a week on goat steaks  washed down ..with water from a glacier.    One  of the party had a hug with a, silver tip bear,  but fame out of the tussel none the worse except for a, few'scratches and bruises.    They had  a line collection of skins.     The party disbanded  at Nelson, the "prince" and mr. Schiebler going:  direct to San Francisco, thence to Europe.  ^  .SIbowM Have. Keen Invented  So������iaea*.  A correspondent writes to a paper at. Augusta,  Georgia, "that saddest thing I saw in a journey  to the west was the old-fashioned rail fence in  Pennsylvania, Ohio, eastern Indiana and southern Michigan. Plow cruel of fate not to permit  the wire fence to be invented 200 years before it  was. Probably enough labor and timber have  been wasted in the building of the old "worm"-  fences in the past to pay off 50 national debts  l.-i.��������� ovn-s#    it makes one almost weep to think of  like  the backs that have been broken, of the hands  worn out, the energies sapped, the boys kept  from school���������in felling trees, splitting logs, driving posts, laying rails for those thousands of  miles of rail fence! When a western farmer  wants a fence now he buys a few posts and a lot  of barbed wire. Three men can put up half a  mile of fence in a day. A rod of fence costs complete���������labor, posts and all���������50 cents. A mile of  fence costs $160. If the farmer had plenty of  growing timber of his own he could not hire a  man to cut the "lengths" alone for that money,  to say nothing of splitting the raiIs."  How it Feels  to be Tarred and   Feathered.  A man who has "been there" tells a reporter:  "People who read of tarring and feathering by  White Caps and others know that the punishment is a very unpleasant one, but few imagine  how terribly painful and dangerous it is. In  Wyoming I once saw a man who had been tarred and feathered, and, although he fully deserved the discipline, I could not help pitying  him.     Hardened   tar  is very hard  to  remove  from the skin, and when feathers are added  it forms a kind of cement that sticks closer  than a brother. As soon as the tar sets the  victim's sufferings begin. It contracts as it  cools, and every one of the little veins on  the body are pulled, causing the most exquisite- agony. The perspiration is entirely  stopped, and unless the tar is removed death is  certain to ensue. .-...'But the removal is no easy  task, and requires several days. The tar cannot  be softened by the application of heat, and must  be peeled off bit by bit,' sweet oil being used to  make the process less painful. The irritation to  the skin is very great, as the hairs cannot be  disengaged, but must be pulled out or cut off,  No man can. be cleaned of tar in a single day, as  the pain of the .operation-would be too excruciating for endurance, and until this is done he  has to suffer from a pain like that of ten thousand pin pricks. Numbers of men have died  under the torture, and none,/ who have gone  through it: regard tarring and feathering as anything but a most fearful infliction."

"Only 50 cents," answered the horticulturist  in charge.  "Only 50 cents?" echoed the caller. "Do you  call that cheap?" c 7  "Yes, sir; for peaches of that quality.    They  are sweet,  ripe, juicy,  and  free  from bruises..  You won't find a better peach in this market,  and I'm betting money on it."  ''They are ch eaper thail that in Delavvare."  "But this isn't Delaware, my friend. Take a  good look at those peaches. No; you needn't  tear a whole in the gauze. Here's an opening  in the side of the basket. You can see for yourself. .'They're:spun_d;'as.a dollar, best freestones,  good all the way down, and if this wasn't a big  year for peaches that basket Would cost you a  dollar and a;cfuarter."  "No cheaper, I veckon, if I should take a half  dozen baskets?"  "I might shade 'eni for you a little, but it's  just as I tell you. There isn't a better peach In  the market any'where today than these, and-  "Take 45 cents for this basket?"  '' Wei 1���������yes."said thedealer, after a moment's  hesitation.

"A person,  sir, -'who doesn't care enough about learning how  to dress properly, take care of pigeons, acquire  an easy grace of .mariner, cook eggplant and detect counterfeit money, and who doesn't believe  in the grand principle of reciprocity in.commercial transactions is not worthy of the name of an  American citizen. That is all, sir! Good afternoon."  The  Press and  Public Men.  General Boynton, who since the close of the  American civil Avar has been the regular Washington correspondent of a leading Cincinnati  daily, has certainly had a good opportunity to  size" up. public men, and his close connection  with men who conduct newspapers makes him  qualified  to speak  ihtelligen tly of them.    In a  recent number of the Century he says: /  "Is the press immaculate?   By no means.   Do  all connected with it appreciate the grave responsibilities which their limitless facilities for  reaching the public should impose upon them ?  Again  the answer  mu st   be an  em piratic  n o.  Have public men no reasonable grounds of complaint? Undoubtedly they have. But the sweeping- judgment which  too  many of them  pass  upon the representatives of the'press as a body  has in it the same elements of unfairness and  injustice   as   exist in   the   wide   opinion   that  public men as a class are corrupt.      With   the  latter the exact opposite is true.   Asa class they  are honest-    So with journalists���������as a class they  are careful and conscientious.     The erroneous  judgments of public men and of members of the  press spring from, the same cause; namely, visiting the shortcomings of the few".upon the many.  In   the one  case the fact that party men, as .a  rule,  unite  to  shield those detected   in wrong  creates a general opinion thatthe class is corrupt.  In. the other the fact that there is too much tol- ,  e ration by the press of its libelers and sensation-  mongers givies, excuse to piiblic men for their ���������  sweeping charges,   in a word, tlie most effective,  foes of the press are those of its own household.  It   is  fully able to  deal  successfully  with  ail  others it should  be  abundantly able to  crush  these." . ' ���������'.  Jeanette Mining Company (Foreign).

Once upon a time���������last year we believe it was  ���������a religious convention.- was held at Saratoga,  New Y rk.    Among the delegates was a. brother  who, besides being skillful in  prayer, was not  uninformed in mathaihaties.    He had learned to  cipher���������not only to sigh for uiansioiis  beyond  the skies, but  to  cipher out with a lead pencil  how much things cost.    He was, moreover*, exceedingly fluent, of speech.    During\the discussion about foreign missions he got up and spoke  right out in meeting.    He said excitedly that he  had ciphered it out, and it cost $6,000,000 in hard  cash for every damned heathen that was converted.    Then suddenly renvembering where he  was and whom addressing, he revised  his  remarks to read  ''every blessed heathen," whereupon the ecumenical council drew a long breath  and felt very much relieved, although some of  the members have n6t yet-'quit giggling whei 1-  ever".- the  subject of   the   heathen   question   is  brought up.    Six millions for one heathen does  seem to be a little steep, even to a. journalist who  is accustomed to deal with large sums. There are  a great  many good .'-people, who would  rather  take the $6,000,000 themselves, put it .where it  would do the most good and then allow Satan to  overt act "of the other���������a blow���������war can never  come. Emperor William may be regarded,  therefore, as a man of peace if he holds the  sentiments attributed to him in this reported  conversation.       ;  Corner West, Vernon and Stanley Streets, NELSON, B.

Iffow to Pour ISotJlert Beer.-  At dinner, not long ago, a party of Pittsburg  gentlemen were   sitting  at   table   with   Hugo  Blanck, the noted chemist of that Pennsylvania  city,  and  they  noticed   that he  exercised the  greatest care in pouring ovit a- glass of beer.    He-  tilted the bottle gently and slowly, so that the  liquid passed from the bottle to the glass without the  least disturbance,  and when  the glass  was full it had no collar of froth at all.  "I could have understood your case," said one,  "if you had been drinking Bass's ale or Guin-  ness's stout, that go on a rampage if not gingerly  handled, but I confess I can't see why you bother  so much about a glass of lager."  Mr. Blanck cast a kindly look of compassion  upon the critic and said:   ilI thought every beer  drinker knew that it should be poured so as to  avoid froth.   Surely such a simple yet important  fact is generally known.    No?   I'm astonished.  Why, if you pour out lager beer headlong into  a glass, allowing foam to fill half the measure,  you lose the best ingredient in the beer, the invigorating,    lively   tonic ���������carbonic   acid   gas.  Pour the beer slowly and so," and mr, Blanck  illustrated his meaning by holding   bottle and  glass inclined together, "and you retain the carbonic acid gas in  the beer.

That is an interesting discussion reported in  the London Standard respecting  the  policy of  forcing a conflict upon  a nation  known   to be  preparing for. war.    Emperor William  of Germany is represented as   saying that he would  not begin  war if conscious that, by delaying it  he could secure a single year, nay a single mon th,  of peace.    The responsibility is so g-reat that he  will not, according to this report, strike the first,  blow.    When other monarchs feel the same way  peace  will be  pretty well assured.    In private  life  fights  are avoided on  the same principle.  Two men quarrel; they are quite ready to come  to blows, but neither wants  to assume the responsibility of beginning, and so they part.    It  is a fact that the man who begins the conflict  usually has the advantage, at least at the outset,  but he must also shoulder the responsibility for  what may follow.    As between nations, that responsibility is very great; but if each awaits an  Furniture and Pianos!  Jas. McDonald & Go.  IV el sou'.
