The Monarch claim is a little nearer  Pilot B .y than the Crown Group,  the  Dr. Arthur, coroner for this district,  summoned a jury to enquire.into .'the  death of the late S. M. Woods on Monday  afternoon. The following were sworn,  Messrs. J. A, Turner, foreman, Swannell,  Jowett, Lemon, A. C. Buchanan, Dover  and Farley,. and after -viewing the body  adjourned to the courthouse.   * -        ��������� *" -  Dr. G. H. H. Symonds was first examined, he said, in conjunction with Dr. La  Ban, I made a post mortem examination  of the deceased, at the request of Capt.  Fitzstubbs,* my instructions were to find  the bullet, and ascertain its course.. -  The bullet entered tbe right shoulder  about two inches below the joint, passed  through the apex of the right lung and  lodged in the spine, nearly going through  the fourth joint.'   ' ���������*    ,  The bullet -shown is the one taken  from the body,'and was undoubtedly the  cause of death..  \  William.. Beard, sworn, said be had  lived with the deceased about six months.  They roomed over the shop. Betwee.  eleven and. twelve o'clock on Friday*  night, October 2nd, he was awakened and.  heard AVoods talking-with a st'rauger, did,  not know the other/.-fjaioe, heard Woods'  say what were, you-doing in the shop?  The other man'said, I was not in, it. was  another man who ran away. ������Woods said,  I saw yon tarn down the light., The man  said, what you are going to do, do. Then  Woods shouted for me (witness) to come  down, and directly after I heard a shot.  I put my bead out of the-window and  shouted help, murder! I then" put on  iny pants and went down. -1 found Woods  lying wounded and several. mennaround.-  They earned bim up and put him on his*  bed, and then Dr. LaBau came. I bad  gone to bed about 8 o'clock and- did not  hear deceased come to bed. He had only  his shirt, drawers and socks on.- 1 tbink  be had been in bed, bat do not know for  certain.  Joseph Tallmire, sworn, heard a shot  between 11 and 12 o'clock Friday and  ran Ho .Woods'' blacksmith shop, went  there because someone was shouting from,  .window above, found .Woods, on his back  wounded, his bead was towards the south  wall of the buildiug. I helped to carry  liim up, the^ bed seemed to have been  slept io, and his boots were at tbe head of.  the bed, I did not Bee or hear anyone'  running away. * The blacksmith shop  door was dosed when I got there,' < -  Constable John Miles said he was  called up on Friday night, he was asleep  in the jail, tbe other constable, O'Loaue  was not in the building, was told Woods  bad been shot, and went to his place_tried  to find O'Loane but'could not, wanted him  to stay in the jail, had to leave the jail  without- auy guard, did not get any  description of the man until Saturday,  when, Woods told me the man was dressed in light clothes with a black hat, light  moustache, and -light complexion, went  to Robson in the afternoon, and arrested  a man, - who gave his name as James  Woods, had revolver ��������� and billy on him,  revolver produced is a Smith & Wesson,  38, and the bullet found in the body is  tbe same calibre. In the presence of  Capt.. Fitzstubbs, took the mau, James  Wood, with several others as nearly like  him as possible. The deceased as soon as  his eyes rested on him said, that is the  man. I did not know auy of tbe men I  took and do not think the deceased did.  Tbe prisoner James Wood made lo  resistance when arrested, said he bad  come from a town at the other end of the  line, when I said was it Nelson, he said  yes that was it  Dr. La Bau, sworn, said, he was reading in bed on Friday night last, heard a  shot fired and people running, was called  up, and went to Wood's place, found him  in bed with a bullet wound in his  shoulder probed for the bullet but could  not reach it, had attended Woods since  and done all possible for him. Woods  died this morning (Monday) about 2  o'clock. . I did not think there was much  chance of his recovery, he wns a fairly  healthy man for his age. Capt. Fitzstubbs  instructed me to make a postmortem  examination with Dr. Symonds. 1 did  so and found the bullet, (description  same as Dr. Symond's). I examined the  heart and found it healthy, did not think  further examination necessary, perfectly  sure that the bullet was the only cause of  death.  After deliberation the jury brought in  a verdict that, tbe deceased came to his  death from a shot fired to the best of  their knowledge and belief by the person  James Wood now in custody.

For every  dollar of profit that goes into the pockets of the shareholders in the Hall  Mines,. two goes into the pockets of  the people of Nelson.  The pioneers of the town have waited patiently, now" some six years for  the dawn of that era of prosperity  which they trusted in. Now it has.  come and their stanch patience will be  rewarded with that success they so  well deserve.  THE GROWTH OF A CAPITAL CITY.  Neither Rome nor Rossland,, were  built in a day, though the latter went  very near it. .Nelson comes somewhere between tbe two. She has been  some six. years -a-building, planting  sturdy roots .in", good soil, and now  having solid foundation., she shoots  ahead well able to avail herself of all  the. great natural, advantages with  which she has been endowed liy a  prodigal nature.:Nor has nature alone  lavished gifts on her. Besides the  silver -and gold in the hills around,  and the noble waterway that brings  valuable cargoes to her wharves, busy  men havejgiven her railway connection,  both to the C. P. R. to the north.and  to all the great systems of the United  States to the south. ' Soon these facilities are to be supplemented by the long  hoped for Crow's Nest - Pass line' and  "the railway up tbe; valley of the Slocan  River. - Every spike ��������� that is driv.en" in  ��������� these lines is another brick in the edifice of Nelson's prosperity.  Material evidences of the truth of  these remarks are not wanting. .No  sooner aire the remaining government  lots offered' for sale,. than the public  rush in and buy. about one hundred  and twenty of tbem, paying down  eighteen thousand, solid dollars for  them. Though the sale is barely completed the clearing of lots, the rising  houses, tbe ring of the hammer on  every side show that the lots were  not bought by. speculators, but by people eager to make homes for "themselves. These are the folk who buil(i  up cities.. The lumber mills are strained to the utmost tb meet the demand,  the hardware men will tell' you that  ~they lwn"Barely"~impoi:t"stocl-""fast^  enough, there is not a shingle in town,  -and,carpenters cannot be got for love  or money. And with all this .there  i6 no boom." There is ho wild mass of  floating "population swarming iu the  . streets and wondering where it is going to get two bits to pay for its next  meal. Tbe men., who are laying tbe  foundation of ' the Jobanhesberg .'of  North America are all earning good  money. They bring-their wives and  families with them, they are prosper'  oiis and well to do. k  ., While in the town itself this, happy  reign of ' prosperity Js inaugurating  itself, the hills around-are swarming  with prospectors seeking the wealth  to pour into Nelson's lap. The books  at tbe Record office show that the  pioneer army find at least one hundred  and fifty locations every week worth  recording. From every side they come.  The Salmon River and its branches  supply some, the hills that slope into  the, Kootenay supply others. Toud  Mountain itself still holds hitherto undiscovered- treasures, -and the Silver  Slocan is spreading itself out across  the divide until the newer location  posts stand within view" of the Silver  King Tramway/ Only recently we  have seen.samples of ore from ledges  of considerable size that would fetch  $50,000 if they happened to be in Trail  Creek. They are worth just as much  here and will not be allowed to waste  their sweetness for v*.he want of a purchaser. .," ~.  Lastly, but by no means least, is the  Hall Mines Smelter, and the.great  " 8ilver King mine itself. Second to  none in the whole district is the great  property. Its wise'directors instead of  scattering their profits abroad in the  shape of dividends are spending their  first earnings in putting in new machinery at the mine, increasing their  facilities for bringing down the ore,  and doubling, almost trebling, the  capacity of their smelting plant, So  well have their operations succeeded  lhat the company is laying itself out  INCORPORA TION OF NELSON.  We trust that the South Kootenay  Board of Trade will meet before long  and formulate some scheme for the  incorporation of the town, which the  people of Nelson will endorse. Every  property owner in the town is agreed  that incorporation is necessary, and in  face of the fact that Nelson will in the  next year or two increase in population much more rapidly than in'the  past, this matter should be attended to  at once. Under'the municipal act, it  is necessary to ap ily for i charter in  June next, then if granted the charter  would go into effect in January 1898.  We can however apply to the Provincial Government for a special act in  January next, which if granted would  go into effect atthe end of the fiscal  year, June 30th 1807. If possible the  rate, mentioned in the act as far as  property owners are concerned should  not exceed the present charges under  Provincial Government. There could  then be no objection on the part of  absentee owners of property, who  otherwise might vote against incorporation, under the impression that  they would have to pay largely increased taxes. With the examples of  other small cities which have been  already incorporated, before them, it  is not likely that the citizens of Nelson  would elect men to office who would  squander the public money.  AN ORATORICAL GEM.  Marvel-on* ^Oratorical   Beauty   of (Had*.  stone's Speech Admired.  London, Sept. 25���������Apart from the  marvellous oratorical beauty of the speech  delivered by Mr. Gladstone yesterday  afternoon, the most .prominent feature  was the statesmanlike quality of the  plan of action proposed. The audience  was largely composed cf bitter political  opponents of the veteran orator, yet no  whisper of dissent was heard when he  outlined the policv, which it is fair to  take ns granted, he would have pursued  if he bad been in Salisbury's place. This  differs widely from tbe so-called bag-and-  baggage policy attributed to him years  ago A leading point was the severing  of diplomatic relations with Turkey, as  certainly not calculated to lead- to a  European war, which other nations fear  at- the present time even moie than  England. At the same, time the step  would most likely lead to men-wies being  taken to safeguard the liver, and liberty,  at least, of the Christians, subjects of the  cruel Sultan. " This and other definite  suggestions by Mr. Gladstone are most  hotly debated in the leading political  clubs of London, and the general'opinion  seems to be that thence will proceed tho  chief practical effect of the great oratorical effort of the old man eloquent. Some  phrases, however, such, for instance, as  "the weakness of diplomacy is about to  be strengthened by the echo of the  nation's voice," or, "to guilt of massacre  is added the impudence of denial," or  "words he puts into the Sultan's mouth,"  again, "I have tried your patience in  distant places ��������� now I will try it under  your own eyes," and "I have desolated  my provinces and will now desolate my  capital," are not only likely, to produce  an immediate effect, but will pass into  the history of this generation's oratory.

Columbia  government. Poor, * dear Colonist!  Its horizon is limited by the city of  Victoria. Twenty thousand exceedingly provincial people are its woild.*  Their esteem is tc ib the breath of life.  By their censure it would die. -Here  in Rossland we have a wider horizon  and freer air.* We speak our own  thoughts and care little what people  may think of them. At the same  time, how fatuous is the Colonist! It  quotes in full an article from lhe Review which it think:?, because it astounds the Victorian public to whom  the clique that runs the government  are as gods not to be lightly spoken of,  will not forcibly appeal as true and  rightous to a wider audience.

DE-T0-K0NE-PAT.  lord Aberdeen Elected Chief or lhe Seneca  IiidliiiiH.  Lord Aberdeen, last week, visited the  Six Nation's fair at .Ohsweken, and was  made chief of the Seneca tribe of the Six  Nations, his token being the turtle and  his' new name being De-To-Eonh-Pat,  which signifies "Clear Sky.'! The governor-general was given a most cordial  reception, the unusual feature of which  was three vigorous war whoops.  In an interview in the Montreal Star,  "Jim Warduer, of Coeur D'Alene and  Slocan fame, said it was interesting to  notice how the great finds of gold and  silver had moved northward in recent  years. Gold was discovered in California  in 1849-50, the great Comstock mine in  Nevada in 1852, Pioch and Tu.carora in  1865-75, the great Emma and Flagstaff in  Utah in-1872, the Homestake mine, Dead-  wood, Dakota, in 1876, Bunker Hill and  Sullivan, ot the Coeur d'Alene, in 1883.  and finally, that vast and wonderful  Kootenay, including the Slocan, Trail  Creek aud Lardeau, from 1889 to 1896.  Commencing at Pioch he had pioneered  in every one of" these, and in each had  supposed that the last and largest had  been ^struck. Now he believed a still  greater deposit of mineral wealth 'existed  in the Kootenay district, and it only re-  mained for some one to discover it -  The convention met on Wednesday and  after the committee ou credentials hnd  reported, President Dennis delivered a  masterly address. Senator Watson C.  Squire* made a few appropriate remarks.  In the afternoon session C. M. Fussott  read a paper on the different methods of  treating ores. Judge Frank Ganahl and  Colonel Charles F. Fishback also delivered addressee. Below is given part of  President Dennis' address.  A review oE the past year's labor will  not" at this time be amiss.   I give it to  you that, you may know at least in part  its character, as well as its accomplish-'  ment. -  There has heen appointed two hundred and. twetily five second vice presidents, fifty-eight of which were in the  state of Washington, forty-seven in the  state of Montana, fifty-two in the state of  Idaho, forty-one .in the state'of Oregou,  and twenty-five in the Province of British Columbia. These officials represent  organized branches of this Association,  one each in the miniug district for which  he is appointed. These brooches with  the second vice presidents as chairmen,  hold regular meetings and through their  secretary,--report the action of their  executive * committee, except in such  cases where, the chairman who is also a  member of said committee, in person,  presents, the said action, in regular  executive'committee session.  We are pledged to support in common all interests of mining in the  northwest, whether those" interests are  ailected either by laws already operative or by persons or corporations,  or new laws Io be ordained, and ouly  in this way is our work destined for  long duration and the highest usefulness. Our purpose is a common, one,  and our inspiration the attainment of  the greatest good. ���������  The province of British Columbia  has had our warmest consideration and  .np stone has.been left unturned or interest not advanced that we in our  power could subserve. In April of the  present year, and as a delegate from  this association to the parliament of  British'"Columbia, I visited Victoria.  The tax bill then before the honorable  body for consideration, implied a two  per cent..tax penalty upon the gross  output,of all crude .ores produced in  the province, which was deemed pernicious to the development of mining.  Had this bill be.n permitted to become a law it would have retarded for  time to come, mining development in  British Columbia.- In the final settlement of the measure the association  was a maiked factor. The bill as finally passed was so modified that but  one per cent upon the net smelter returns was substituted and became the  law.' This permits prospecting and  development to proceed unhindered  and unprejudiced, and now no revenue  is paid in the way of a tax to the general government except upon ?uch ores  as are mined and first shipped to the  smelter and for which casn returns are  made. Thus ores upon the dump are  exempt from this liability. The association regards its - identification  with its attendant results as one of  the best and most important endeavors  of the year.  -  fllT     ORES . . .  C-pJer,    WANTED.

Her" husband bad gone to business  before the letters had arrived. A , large  legal-looking letter was for her, which  ���������he turned over and over, and felt half  afraid to open, it seemed so important;  (or tbe envelope bore outside the names  of "Wllklns & Wllklns, Solicitors. At Unt  ���������he bad summoned up courage enough to  . look what was inside, and had read, to her  astonishment and delight, tbat Frederick  Walton of New York, now deceased.  had left by his will, five thousand pounds  to his dear brother, Jacob Walton, or,  If deceased, to his wife and children. And  Messrs. Wllklns & Wllklns, Solicitors to  tbe said Frederick Walton, deceased,  notified farther to Marian Hlndson tbat,  her father and mother now being dead,  ���������nd she the only child, they would be  -my glad If she would direct them as to  ���������when and bow they should pay tbe five  thousand pounds aforesaid.  It was totally, unexpected. Only onoe  or twice   had - Marian   even   beard  her  " father speak of his brother in Now York.  She knew there was such an one, that  was all; for the two had never been vory  friendly. And now! Her eyes filled with  tears whilst she went and took up ber  husband's. photo, whioh she lovingly  klssoU, as she murmured: "Edward, my  love! my husband! Mow I can repay  yonr goodness to* me I"-  -*., Five years   before , the   time   wo- are  . speaking of,' Edward Hlndson bad loved  Marian* Walton passionately, devotedly  and constantly, and it was not unexpected on her part when he, after twelve  months' acquaintance, made a proposal  of marriage to her.  Bat Micrlan Walton was  not  sure of  ��������� her"own "heart. She acknowledged she  liked Edward as a friend; but did-she  love him as one ought to  love one's fu-  . tore husband? She scarcely.felt she could  say "Yes'' to this question, and, whilst  hesitating to totally negative his proposal,'- she. did not care to accept lt offhand. And, perhaps, there was a little-  well' what woman does not like to be  asked twice or thrice?  So she simply wrote to say she didn't  oare to engage ; herself yet to anybody,  and suggested that lt might   be better If  " bis attention were to cease.  Mow, Edward Hlndson was just the  man- to whom this treatment was partlo-  " nlarlj annoying. Sure of his own love,  be felt much hurt at what be considered  -Miss. Walton's lightness of heart; and  he resolved to,do her bidding, and keep  ���������way from her. Yet he felt he loved her  nonetheless. So he quietly pursued his  work, gaining fame by, his writings,  though not ��������� fortune, in money. Jacob  Walton died six months after this. As  far as was known, he had left no income  for'bis wife and daughter, beyond a mere  trifle���������say, a pound a week���������and this  was not mubh to those who had been  aooustomed to ton.' There was a fair  amount of furniture, it is true, and, after several talks about the matter, Mrs.  Walton and her daughter decided on that  . step which la always the* last refuge of  distressed gentlewomen,   namely,   keep**  * Ing ��������� preparatory school.  But there" dame a sadden shook���������an  awful shook for them. On the Saturday  before the week that they. were ��������� to open  their school, a gentleman asked to we  'Mrs. Walton. On going into the room,  . ibe, found a somewhat harsh-looking  man, who addressed her rather roughly���������  "Mrs. Walton?!'. . -   , .  "Yes."*  "Will yon read that?"      . ,   .  She took lt and read it  "What Is it, sir? What does it mean?  Please tell me your business!"  ���������''"Don't* you hurry so. my good  -woman; you'll learn it fast enough."  . Shewould have, ordered him out, but  ���������eemed to have no power left; so, she  simply sat helplessly and tremblingly  waiting for him to speak.  ."This here, "madam Is what we call  an -nooommodatlon'; some folks rail lt  V'bUI of sale." You don't know what  ���������hat means? No? Well, I'll tell you.  .Yonr husband was. acquainted some  two years.ago with a man called James  Swain, who was,'I. believe,- in the same  buidness. Swain, one day,. being hard  np,' oame to oar Jflrm���������Messrs. Jlrotfr- *  - Jlmpsb-Loan-Offlce, .Newmarket ..street-?,  - to borrow money. He wanted one hundred pounds. Of course, before he could  have It he had to - find somebody to be  surety for Its repayment. That somebody  was your late  husband, Mr.   Jacob Wal-  '* ton, as you will see by. the signature  here. . Now do you understand?"  The widow's face was deadly pale, and  her knees shook violently.  "I hear what you sny, sir," she muttered. - "But was the money not repaid,  then." -,,..*.  "No, that lt wasn't! Moreover, Swain  decamped about three months ago, nnd  your husband called  on us,   and  agreed  * to pay by instalments If left untouched.  We accepted the ofTor. Now, you see, be  is dead, and we are wanting our money.  That's the case,* in a nutshell!"  The widow saw it all. "Itwas cruel 1  Oh, why did her husband ever sign such  **a paper���������and leavo Marian and herself in  Ignorance of lt, too? She wan not a business woman, and a gleam of hope fluttered across her mlad.  "My husband .is dead, so now wo nan-,  not bo made to pay what is so unjust l"  she said.: ,u      _  "No; but his executors can!" replied  the man. _ "And," he added, brutally,  "tbey will? Jimps & Jimps never lose  money, my dear Mrs. Walton.' Here is  the bill of sale. If this money is not  paid by Thursday, next * week, we shall  take possession of your goods, and proceed to sell them."  . He went out, for he knew the usual  pleadings and words of the distressed in  ���������ach cruel oases^and he did not wish to  bear them. When Marian Walton entered  the room ten minutes later, she was horrified to find her mother la a fit. The  servant * who came, on hearing her  shriek, had a bad afternoon with both  of them, ere they recovered anything like  their real senses.  They   were   heartbroken.    To   be   left  thus!    Yet, after tbe first explosion   if  wrath at the injustice, no word was farther said against the causa of all this.  * "No, Marian 1" said the  mother to the  ���������-tenrful daughter, on the Monday following; ."there is nothing we   can   do.    No  one can, or will, lend   us  one hundred  "pounds; and, If  they did, how could we  repay it?   No, love: I don't see what we  can do.    But God knows."  And, witb eyes red with weeplDg at  the thought of parting with - the dearly-  loved things of years and years, she left  'My**1*" to avoid a further outbnist. Edward Hlndson was going home from  church that Sunday evening, when young  -Saylor, who had heard from a friend In  ""     >**_ <*���������_��������� about tfela affair, spoke of  it to him, not knowing  how   keenly  ho  would feel it.  The greater part of tbat night Hind- '  son sat up thinking. The following morning saw bim going to the bank, in which  he had deposited his life's savings of two  hundred pounds, and drawing out, by  check, half of it. From the bank he proceeded to the office ������f Messrs. Jimps &  Jimps, and having secured "from them  a promise���������which they readily and willingly gave���������to say not a word of how or  from whero they had got the money, he  paid the one hundred pounds owing,  and, taking possession of the bill of sale,  returned quietly home. That night the  .incriminatory document was slowly  burned in Edward Hlndson's sitting-  room fire, much to his satisfaction.  "There! Marian is safe, anyhow," said  he, "from those money-lending sharks!  Ood bless her!"  It is needless to state the tortures and  anxiety Miss Walton and her mother  went through that week till Thursday  morning. When they got the notice of  tho bill having been paid to Messrs.  Jimps & Jimps, they could scarcely believe their senses. Who could taave paid  It?  After many vain attempts to guess,  and none of them at all near the mark,  they gavo it up for the present.  "May the blessings of' Ood, promised  to those befriending the widow and  fatherless, fall upon our benefactor,"  said Mrs. Walton.  "Amen!" said Marian,  weeping  with  joy*  It was some months later that Marian  Walton began to realise sho had made a  mistake. She slowly, but surely, began to feel tliat Edward Hlndson wes  dearer to ber than she bad ever thought���������  in fact, that she loved him. It was a'  slow-dawning revelation, but all the  more certain for that. And she had rejected him! Fool that I was!".washer  daily comment, "not to have seen how  good,* how true a man I have lost!"   .  His name as a literary man was getting* widely known; but it was not that.  She loved bim. and him only. Yet,  strange'to relate, she never thought of  suoh a thing as his having - paid her  father's" debt; to her and her mother the  "good angel" was yet unknown.  Whether Hlndson got' some glimpso of  her change of feeling or not, from their  meeting at a soiree is doubtful. But now,  after "six months, he felt, if ever sho  would change, it must surely have come;  so, very delicately, he tried again, and  found.she did not. resent bis love. Emboldened by this, he soon proposed, and;  wa** shyly, but lovingly accepted.  "Forgive me, my   love!".said Marian.  "You see, I did not know   before   how I'  did love you!   And I feared  I   had lost  you for ov6r!   It is so sweet to  flnd������you  have still loved me;   I am very happy!"  So" was Edward Hindson.  -  They had been married some weeks  .before he told her who had cancelled her  father's bond. Mrs. Walton died not  long afterwards, invoking with'-*her last  words a blessing on hiin who had made  them both so happy.'  And Marian wept and kissed him joyfully and lovingly, over and over again,  as she said:��������� ^   .  .��������� "My own darling * husband! Why," I  never guessed it was you! ' What a foolish girl, too! I might have known! How.  can I thank you, my love? How. can I  ever repay your goodness?"  ,And "Edward  said   something  whioh  made his dear wife happier, than ever, as  to repayment in the' future..  *   -      *        * *- *,    .*        ������  And here It was, this morning! They  had had only one little girl, who didn t  live long, so Edward was still linrepald,  he had said. - But five thousand pounds,  to a struggling author! -.   <*"  She met htm at the door, as- he came  in, gave him the note, with a kiss, nnd  said gleefully:���������  "There, love! tell them what to do  with it. It is yours, every bit of it! And  now, with this���������and me, you often say���������  'are you not'repaid for  your  goodness?"  And the lovelight in Edward's eyes,  as he took her faoe and kissed it, showed  her that he was.  Facial Expression of Emotion.  The emotions, It is almost unneces-  sa y to state, are expressed mainly by  the face. It is true that the heaving and  feminine bosom, .in' times' of domestic  storm and stress, sometimes lends effectual ald_to_t heir better^ expression. Bnt.  with this exception** emotions Jn their,  visible condition are chiefly of the face.  That Is the case at any rate with the  comparatively immobile. Anglo-Saxon.  Why is this an undoubted fact? The  muscles of the human' face are less  massive than those of many animals;  the powerful teeth of the carnivore, need  increased strength of muscle - to bring  them effectually into play. The diminutive size of the facial muscles In man  bring them more readily' into action;  they respond more easily to a nervous  excitation. This view is due to Herbert  Spencer, who Ms quoted, but not with  entire appreciation,, by Dr. Mosso. The  latter physiologist thinks that other factors enter into the matter. Among the  most important causes. are, he thinks,  the noarnesF of the; parts stimulated to  the brain. Nervous impulses naturally  travel along the lines of least resistance;  hence the facial muscles are moved  before -the hands are clenched or the  arm shot out straight from the shoulder.  -'" The steel rail pool is made up of the  Carnegie Steel Company, the Illinois  Steel Company, the Pennsylvania -Steel  Company, the Cambria Iron & Steel  Company and the Lackawanna Steel  Company.

In localities where lead ores and  fuels arc scarce and almost unattainable, our  pyritic, water jacketed Matte Smelter has  been recognized with highly satisfactory results, and has been thoroughly tested on various pyritic, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to 80 tons per day. It. is the most-  practical, cheapest and simplest method of  ttold and silver ore matting and concentrating  thatis known to-day. ���������  It requires no extraordinary skill, no" lead  ores, no fluxing material, and no fuel of any  kind for the smelter after it is started. The  sulphur in the ore is its natural fuel only, ana  sits cost has no comparison with any other process of concentrating. ;'  We are prepared to furnish any size or capacity plant- complete to substantial mining  people, set it up and furnish our men to run it  for them on easy payments.
