 VOL 3.      NO. 12.  SANDOK, B. C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 26, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  "LET THERE BE LIGHT."  Is the  Yoice of a Large  Majority  of tie Citizens.  Whatever excuse there was for cutting off the light, during midsummer,  wnen the nights were chort, in the interest of economy, there are no arguments for keeping the place in dark-  '-ness these long, dark nights. In our  last'issue wo showed how the absence  of street lights would give any visitor  a bad impression of the city, and be a  premium for evil acts in the place.  Wc understand that between 98,000  and $9,000 a year is collected in'license? and about half as much more from ' ors, organized,a  realty tax. and  other sources.   This ia  a substantial revenue for a place the  size of Sandon.   The flume,  of course,  calls for a   moderate exceptional   expenditure, but in* other respects our  necessary demands aru quite moderate.  This year but little sidewalk has been  laid down, and under any and ��������� all circumstances having but few streets, our  street expenditure is light.   Our realty  tax will cover all these sundry outlays.  Then, if we aro not going to have light  ���������what is going to be done with  tho license money ?   Apart from this it is a  question if the Water & Light Co. cannot collect in tho courts whether the  arc lights are ordered on or off.   If wc  remember aright a resolution appears  on  the books, in the early part of the  year,   authorising tho lights "on the  same terms as lust year.''   Lust year  the terms were all,the j ear round, and  a commencement of the service was  made this year.   The resolution on the  books  and   a  commencement   of the  service  being made and accepted  constitutes a contract binding in law.   As  we should regret to see a repudiation  of contract, to say nothing oi  possible  consequences, we trust good judgement  will govern in this matter,   and give  the city a light service which we know  two-thirds of the ratepayers dciire.  est mining camp in the North West is  on the verge of the biggest miners'  strike in the history of this section.  Six thousand miners^ mostly Americans and many of them late from the  Occur d'Alenes district in Idano, have  resolved through their miners' union  not to accept the wages offered by the  British American Corporation, owners  of the LeRoi and'Centre Star and other  big mines, and, Gooderhum & Black-  stock, owners of thu War Eagle and  other properties, the principal mine  owners ok the district.  ' Last winter the British Columbia  parliament passed a law prohibiting  the working of men in mines more  than eight hours a day. That rate was  $3.50.for ten hours. The Iiossland  mine owners offered S3 per clay for  eight hours, and proposed in the event  this was refused to introduce the contract system. At a meeting of the  miners these terms were rejected. The  mine owners fearing that tho Coeur  d'Alene spirit was rife among the min-  militia company, the  head of which is Ross Thompson, who  laid out the city of Iiossland. A ear  loa'd of rifles and two machine guns  have been obtained.  BYLAW NO. 15.  TAX  LEVY  BYLAW,  1899,  THE BENEFIT CONCERT.  One of the Best and   Most Largely Attended Ever Held in the City.  A Day of Reckoning.  A dny of reckoning will dawn upon  the   people   of  Eastern   Canada   who  elect representatives on both sides of  politics to support a policy which baffles the hopes and betrays the interests  of tho people of the West.   Canadian  Statesmanship ought to aim at the destruction of evsry condition which cmi  add to the expense of transactions between consumers in the west and producers in  tho cast.   Canadian statesmanship, as represented by tho leadership on both sides, is apparently laboring to prohibit commerce between the  east ana the west by u   policy  which  would restrict the people of Manitoba  ���������-���������; and the west to a choice between two  overbonded lines -of railway.   If the  country is not ready  for government  ownership,   the   rights of shippers in  the east and consumers in   the   west  could be protected by a system which  would prevent this new route between  Winnipeg   and   Lake Superior   from'  bieingv bonded for more than its cost.  Eastern Canada   is<doing   its best- to  compel the-people-of the west to pay  freight rates on sums far in excess of  the actual cost of the railways which  are built with public money.   ,  The concert held in Virginia Hall  Thursday evening for the benefit of  Archie McDonald, who received such  serious injuries last week and is now  iii the hospital doing nicely, was a decided success. It had the largest attendance of anything of the kind held  heretofore in tho place, and must have  netted a snug sum.  Tho chairman, Mr. M. L. Grimmett,  handled the program in his 'usual affable manner. The brass band was  much in evidence, and gave evident  satisfaction.^. Mr. McKenzic, heard of  before, gave his "Dear Liza." Miss  Wilson, well-known to Sandon audiences, gave two soIot and a;duet with  Mrs. Funk; Mr. Barron (violin) and  Mrs. Funk (piano), an instrumental  due���������ail we;e heartily encored and  cheerfully responded. Mr. Hays, a  new man in thu place, gave some'good  character sketches, with local hits, and  a dance, which took the boys by storm.  ,,1,l������  magnificent   and   handsomely (V)  The  arranged boquet presented to him ho  will Jong preserve among his choicest  souviners. Handsome boquets were  presented to all the lady performers.  Tho strong feature, however, of the  evenng's pro*;ram"!wns the singing of  Mrs. F. A. Wood, it being her first appearance before a Sandon audience.  She gave "For All Eternity" and a humorous piece for an encore. She has a  high soprano voice, mellow and voluminous. Her articulation is perfect and  rendition without ed'ort or display���������  the acknowledged strong features now  adays oi educated singing. We should  say her forte is oratorios and sacred  music. She will be a valuable acquisition to SaLclon musical circles, and  the people will be delighted to near  her often.-     "-'..':     .,. : ., ,  Mrs. Funk played most-of the accompaniments in her usual excellent  stye. The ''Star Spangled Banner" and  "God Save the Queen" brought the  entertainment to a close.  Whereas the Assessment Roll of the  Corporation of the City of Sandon haying  been finally revised and passed, it is  deemed necessary and expedient that  provision be made for all sums which  may be required for the lawful purposes  of the Corporation of the City of Sandon  during the year 1899.  ,  Now therefore, the Municipal Council  of the Corporation of the City of Sandon  enacts as follows :���������  1. Impre-voments as defined by the  Mnuicipal Clauses Act, in tho City of  Sandon, shall be exempt from taxation  for the year 1899 to the extent of fifty  per cent. (50) of their assessed value as  shown upon the said revised assessment  roll.  2. There is hereby settled, imposed  and levied, and there shall bo collected  an equal rate of fifteen (15) mills on the  dollar on the whole rateable property  shown on the revised assessment roll of  the City of Sandon for the year 1S99  (subject to the exception and exemption  aforesaid) to provide for tho payment of  all the necessary expenses of- the Corporation of the City of Sandon during  the'-year 1899.  3. Thero is hereby settled, imposed  and levied, and there shall be collected  an equal rate of seven and three-  quarters (7jJ) mills on tho dollar on the  amount of the whole rateable property  on the revised assessment roll of the  City of Sandon for the year 1899 (subject  to the exception and exemption aforesaid) to provide for payment of interest  on outstanding debentures issued under  "Improvement Loan Bylaw, No. 14,  1899,7 and to provide a sinking fund for  payment of said debentures when due  during 1S99.  4. There is hereby' settled, imposed  and levied, and ' thero shall be raised  and collected an equal rate of one (1)  mill on the dollar on the amount, of the  whole rateable property on said revised  assessment roll of the said City ot Sandon  for the year 1899 (subject to tho exception  and exemption as aforesaid) for Board of  Ho.ilth and Hospital purposes during tho  yeardS99. '  5. Tho aforesaid rates and Inxos shall  be due and payable to the collector of  the Corporation of tho said city at his  office in theCityof Sandon on the first day  ol September, JS99; and all persons who  shall before the 30th day of September,  1S99, pay the aforesaid rated and taxes,  shall be entitled to a discount or reduction of one-sixth of the amount imposed  and levied under clauso two of this bylaw.  The rates and taxes hoi eby impos  am not capable of judging in that mat-  tor. As tho Nelson Tribune and the  Vancouver News-Advertiser copied the  above mentioned item from the Pay-  streak, it would set me right to mention that I have not authorized any  such statement.  Yours respectfully,  Maurice Gintzuurger.  Manager Ajax Fraction Mine,  Sandon, B. C. Aug. 20, '99.  [The Review has been attacked over  and over again, in the true Chester-  fieldian, style of the genius up the  gulch, in this matter; and the foregoing shows who is and who is not right.  We never try to misrepresent any man  to prove an indefensible position, .as  Mr. Gintzburger's statement is evidence the genius has done. The inference to be drawn from what our correspondent says is that miners do not  do as much work in 8 as in 10 hours,  which, if true, destroys one of the  strongest planks in the contentions of  the short day advocates.���������Ed.

Copper propositions in Canada haye  great inducement   to get   themselves  doveloped speedily into ore producers.

Representatives of foreign copper houses are  .. on hand trying to buy up both spot  and futures.   Outside' of America the  supply of it is so altogether inadequate  to the demand that 20c. is a probable  price before the end of the year.    It  agrees   with this  urgent demand and  high price for copper, that  the Amalgamated Copper Co, is reported as endeavoring to secure control of as many  of the valuable copper mines as possible.

FRANK C.SEWELL,   .  City Clerk.  COMMUNICATION.  To the Editor of The 'Mining Rovlow:  Dear Sir,���������In an article ' in the  Pay'streak of: August 5th, I notice  that I am reported to have stated  that lam.of the opinion that the  work done in the short shift of eight  hours on the Ajax Fx'action is equal  to that formerly done in the long  one. This I emphatically deny. What  I might have stated is that I have no  complaint to make so far, and that I  am paying $3.50 per day of 8 hours because I cannot help it. In reference to  the statement reputed to have been  made by me that the Slocan miners  "arc the best on earth," I may state  that my mining experience, so far, has  all been in the Slocan, consequently I  To the Editor of The Mining Rovlow:  Dear Sir,���������A communication which  appeared in your last week's issue was,  no doubt, written  by one who desires  economy, but not in a direction which  would affect Mr. Harris.. He objects to  the city office being moved from the  Virginia block and transferred to Tara's  Hall.    Why   the   site   of  Tara's Hall  should be considered   in a low down  part of the city, we cannot understand.  Surely people who happen to live and  do business in the lower part of the  town are not different from those in  the upper part.   The fact that a few of  the demi mondc should  reside in one  part of the town does not affect the respectability of others residing in  the  same quarter.   The move should have  been made when Tara's Hall was first  rented  as a  police court.     The   city  rented the.building at S15 per month,  and  the room is not in use one hour  out of  24,  so the city clerk's   office  should have been  there   as tho clerk  would have the place nearly always at  his disposal,   and there   is  plenty  of  room,   and   as the council   has been  paying out S3G0.00 on that item use  iessly.   I think the council should be  ! hanked for at last tumbling  to themselves and moving the  council chamber to the the police court.  In regard to tho lights   being cut off,  it was the right move, and they should  have followed  by tho city refusing to |  pay  for hydrants.   I  would draw" the  attention of "Observer" to the fact that  we must have nearly paid for the cost  of the plant,   and would suggest  that  Mr. Harris put in the system of street  lights and hydrants for his  own personal protection before   the city  was  iucorparated.   Lights would have been  burning and hydrants free without incorporation, as   they were put   in   to  protect Mr. Harris's property.  ' The council need have no fear being  contaminated by leaving  the Virginia  block and taking up quarters in Tara's  Hall as they will be under the protection of our   chief of   police, who is  a  Jineal descendant of the ancient kings  of Tara's Hall, anal, as the -'sit" is good  enough, for our worthy.   Judge Lilly,  surely the council   will remain   spotless.  "Observer" is correct in objecting to  the amount of money collected and  placed to such little use. I agree with,  nini, .'and he shuld be pleased to find  that'the city is at last refusing to pay  so much! of it to Mr. Harris.  I remain  -.    ���������   ' Yours truly,  ���������   '' '   . a. David.  Sandon, Aug. 24,'99.  [Supposing thero had been neither  lights nor water in the place when it  was incorporated, the'eity would have  had to put them in since for- its  own  protection.   The fact that they were  here  and available does not, therefore,  diminish  the city's obligation to pay  for what it gets and must have, even if  Mr. Harris did not own a dollar's worth  of property in the place.   It savors too  much of the principle of repudiation  to either refuse to use water and light  or to refuse to pay lor them when used  and necessary because any one man is  specially benefited.   'J he proper principle is to pay   the proper price for  what'is actually required, and no one  will deny that water and light are ail  important, no matter what intividual  or individuals may be served thereby.  ���������Ed. Review.  The Palmita's   500-foot tunnel  been finished by the Jenkin Bros.  The Fontenoy Mining Company,  Camp McKinney, have put in a steam  hoist. , ,  Vancouver companies have been organized to work tho California and  Clipper mines, near New Denver.  The Sunshine Company are making  preparations to work on a very extensive scale, when a commencement is  made; but tL.e location of the concentrator will be fixed before the general  plans of the company will be unfolded.  F. L. Byron, under whose management the big A. E. ledge is being developed, was down from that property  last Saturday. He reports the crosscut tunnel' being run as now into the  solid rock 30 feet, and- he feels confident that the A. E. is tho making of  one of the biggest mines on Red Mountain.   "  It is stated on good authority that  under tho new management of the  Galena Mines work will be eommeiccd  at once. The new owners have already  given out that they will erect a concentrator and have it running this season. So it will be no sarpuse to see  this well known Slocan property working in full blast this winter.  The Colonial Goldfields Gazette says  that applications have been made to  the Stock Exchange Committee to appoint a special settling day in ifoo'  enay Railway & Navigation"Comp:mv,  Limited, ������250,000 five per cent, debentures; also New Gold Fields of  British Columbia, Limited, further issue of 19,143 ������1 shares fully paid, Nos.  50,001 to 69,143.  The Skylark and Ranker property on  the north fork of Lemon creek is'being  developed under the superintendency  of W. A. Copeland and is gi\ing employment to 13 miners. Two tunne's  are being driven, both directly on the  ledge, and aro cich in now about 50 .  feet. The paystreak is 20 inches' wide ,  and gives assays ranging from 100 to  150 ounces in silver and 620 in gold to  the ton. The Skyhu-Kand Ranger, like  most of the Lemon creek properties, is  a dry ore proposition and under development bids lair to equal the very best  mine in that neighborhood.

'  .- ftl  ' :''^i  .������>1  Rl  u  ���������MMSMMIliMmlllBJ^^ A Happy Outcome  ���������i ���������  .(.,,  .' Day by day ������ had aeen the lines of  Bare deepen round my father's mouth  end forehead, and watched my moth-  or's pale and anxious gazo rest upon  him.  Night after night did Maude and 1  lay aide by side, and spend the hours  when sleep, they loll us, lends us beauty in wondering what trouble was hovering over us.  But the knowledge came all too soon.  My father had lent money which ho  supposed ho could call in at uny time.  The tune arrived, but the money was  not forthcoming. His health was rapidly failing him, a fact his business anxieties in no way helped, and we soon  knew he must mortgage heavily the  farm, and that if his health continued  to fail he might soon be unable oven  to pay tho interest.  Then Maude and 1 began to hold our  whisnered conversations to better purpose���������to decide that we were strong,  and young, and healthy, and that such  gifts were given to us to be inado  use of. And so it ended in our sending off a mysterious leltor to the old  school-teacher, and wailing and watching days for a reply, which came at  last to tell us she had succeeded in  finding a situation as governess, at a  competency which to us seemed wealth.  The lady was willing to take any one  on hei recommendation, and either of  us, she felt assured,^ wold fill tho role.  So she left. It for us to decide���������one  must go and ono  must stay.  At last Maude said it must be she  who would go. She was older than  I, and she thought she would be happier away working than at home sitting with folded hands. She was so  pretty, so loving and so lovable, that it  seemed as though we could not let  her go among strangers.  At first father and mother would  not listen to it, but we overruled all  objection, and Maude wrote and appointed  a day  for her   coming.  The intervening time passed rapidly away in busy preparation, and at  last the ono Sunday left us rose  bright and clear. Maude looked so  lovely that morning in her pretty hat,  with its long, drooping feather, that  I1 did not wonder tho eyes of a stranger in the church wondered persistently to our pew.  He was a tall, handsome man, sitting  with the Leonards���������a name which in  our village represented its aristocracy  and wealth.  There were gentlemen from London  visiting there constantly, but their  gaze did not often wander from the  ���������tylish, elegant, Misses Leonard to seek  any   other  attractions.  I saw them glance round onco or  twice, as if to discover what else in  the church could possibly distract attention from themselves, and 1 fear I  felt more pride in Maude's beauty than  waa quite consistent with the sacred  place in which we were.  But after she had gone, and at night  I went, for the first lixno, to my room  alone, I felt that she had chosen the  better' part���������that it was easier even  to go forth among strangers, with her  hand at the plow, than to sit down  quietly   on   the   vacant   hearthstone.  However, I soon found plenty for  heart and hands. My father grew  rapidly worse instead of better, and it  waB hard work so to word my letters  to Maude that she should not know of  the skeleton in our home���������the shadow  of coming death.  Her letters were bright and cheery,  and when at last I told her that our  father -grew no better, she answered  6he had met Dr. Melrose, who was a  relative of the lady whose children she  taught, and asked him to go down and  see father, and that she would defray the necessary expenses.  I almost gasped when I read the  name���������Dr. Melrose. His fame had  reached oven our oars. I wondered  how she could have approached him  with such a request; but I said nothing to father of her desire, and one  morning, about a week later, his card  was put into my hands.  With quick, trembling limbs,. I hastened down to meet him, and opened  the parlor door to find myself face to  face with the stranger, who, weeks before,  had'aat in   the  Leonards' pew.  My face grow red and pale as I recognized him ; but lie came forward very  quietly, and, .taking my hands, said:  ' ICome, we will have a little talk  first, and then you shall take mo to  see your father."  I quickly obeyed him, and sat down  beside him, as he directed, while he  not seeming to observe my agitation,  told mn of my sister���������of her happiness  in her new home; how already she had  won her way into their hearts, and  hoWglad he was that business at this  tiimo called him to this spot,- and enabled him to perhaps bo of some assistance.  ���������   . '.     ,  Then I found words, and when he  left me: to visit my father, I found  myself awaiting his return with a calm  assurance that, could mortal aid avail  him, he would, find it in Dr. Melrose's  healing  touch.  A half hour passed before his return,  and when he entered the room' I knew  I might hope.  " It Is not so bad as I feared," he  ������aid. ''Time and careful nursing will  Boon restore him. The latter I shall  Intrust to you."  Then he gave me hla directions so  clearly that "I co^ld not misunderstand  them, and when he bade mo good-by,  holding' both mj hands Jfor a moment  in hia own, and said: " You must take  caro of yourself as well, and not give  me two patients instead of one," he  smiled so kindly that I felt my heart  leap as I thought.  " It's for Maude's' sake he has done  thia thing.   He loves her."  It did not seem strange that she  should have won the heart of a man  as high in the world's favor as Ernest  Melrose stood. It would not, have  seemed strange to me had she won  royalty; in my eyes she might have  graced  any   throne.  So I wrote her of his visit, and its  wonderful results; how ' father improved day by day, and how with health  came hope and courage, so that soon  tho clouds would scatter and we should  have  her home again.  But she answered, bogging me never to think of her except as happy���������  thai in Mrs. Marvin she found n second mother, and in her work only pleasure. ���������  She rarely' mentioned Dr. Melrose's  name; but I could well understand  why she was silent.  So the winter passed. Two or three  times (he doctor came to relievo the  monotony. My parents grow to welcome him as a friend, and I, in my  heart of hearts, as a brother, for I  felt sure I had guessed the secret of  his   love for Maude.  He talked of her so constantly, tell-  and how her beauty of character had  far exceeded oven the charm of "face  and form.  We looked to him almost as our deliverer, for father's health and vigor  were at last restored; 4 but when he  asked him for his bill, he laughingly  replied:  ".That was a private matter with  Miss Maude.   She is to settle that."  My father looked amazed; but I  could appreciate the payment he would  accept and imagined their surprise  when ho should demand it at their  hands.  The summer was rapidly approaching���������the time for Maude's horae-com-  ing was at hand.  With glad, happy heart I decorated  our room with the roses she so loved;  hung fresh muslin curtains from the  windows, looped them back with sprays  all tho while singing aloud in my joy.  1 had,reason to be happy, for Maud  was coming to a homn over which hung  no shadow of debt. The mortgage had  been paid. AVhat she had saved s-hcu d  go toward her trousseau when she  needed ono, for father had prospered beyond all expectation.  'At last I heard tho sound of wheels.  Nearer and  nearer.  "I bring you a surprise," she had  written, and by her wide sat Dr. Melrose: I knew it all. Was "it not as I  pictured, fancied, hoped?

"Ellie, darling I Where aro you?'  questioned a sweet, girlish voice; and  I sprang up, ashamed of my momentary weakness, to find myself clasped  in my sister s warm loving embrace.  She had come back lovelier than ever.  Ah, I could guess what had deepened  the flush upon her cheek, the radiance  to her eye I  I smoothed my*disordered' hair, listening the while to her merry talk,  though not a word did she say of him,  whoso deep, manly tones I could hear  now and then as he sat talking.  "Look your best," she said, with a  roguish twinkle���������"your very, very  best!   There���������I am satisfied."  And, taking me by the hand, she ran  rapidly down into the room where they  all sat.  Dr. Melrose instanlly arose, and came  forward with his old smile of welcome,  and made a movement as thcugh he  would already give me a brother's kiss,  but remembered in lime that his secret  was not yet disclosed.  The evening passed rapidly away in  pleasant lauijh and jest. Occasionally  I intercepted a glance between- Maud  and her guest, full of meaning, but no  one else seemed to notice it. At last  he rose to bid us good night; and as he  held my hand a moment in his own,  ho whispered:  "You have always been tho most in-  fat igable in pressing my small claim  upon you. To-morrow 1 will present  it to you for payment. May I see  you for a few moments in the morning?"  "Certainly." I answered; but my  voice trembled, and I think had ho  stayed a moment longer I should have  burst into  tears.

Not' long ago Her Majesty Queen  Victoria was traveling in Prance, and  while out driving one day overtook a  peasant funoral procession, where the  road was so narrow there was no room  to pass. The mourners stopped and  stood aside, but she asked them to  pass on, while she ordered her own carriage moved in line, and it moved slowly at the end of tho sad little procession for quite u distaJaue, the Queen  sitting with bowed head the while, till  the  roads diverged.  Again, when she was driving through  the city of Nice one lovely afternoon,  she saw a little child crying bitterly.  She had her carriage stopped, and,  leaning out, asked in the kindest tones  the,cause of distress, and at the same  time pressed some bright, new coins  into   the  little, hand.       ���������''!'���������  "Nothing now," said the, small man,  closing his fingers tightly over the precious money. And the Queen smiled  well pleased when she saw smiles  where the tears had been.  GIFT FOR A BRIDE. >  At a recent wedding the bridesmaids  gave to the bride a chest of linen as  a joint present. The chest was, .- a  handsome piece of furniture, made in  quartered oak, finely polished and fitted with compartment trays.

Sprigs of lavender  were laid away in the foldsof the linen, each piece of which ^yas done up  in tissue paper tied with white ribbons, a spray of orange blossoms being fastened to the bow of white ribbon which tied J together the cards of  the donors. .-"���������'.'���������"  LOffi iSBAGBKHS.

Do you believe in long engagements*  Well it may be "that patient waiters  are no losers," but no woman can  afford to fritter away tho best years  of her life in the dismal state of uncertainty in which a long engagement  places her.  The story of the girl who ia faithful  'for fifteen or twenty years to the lover  of her youth and who waits patiently  for his father, and mother, and grandmother, and bedridden aunt, and lamo  brother to grow old and die, roads well  when the skillful novelist tackles it  and writes it up in tgood stylo, and it  has been hashed and rehashed, like cold  roast chicken, until it has become a  chestnut  in  literature.  And we have all sighed ovei\lhe woes  of Angelina   and Frederick, as    their  youth  waned,  and  the old aunt still  continued, and tho marriage had to be  deferred.and Frederick grow baldhead-  ed and rheumatic, and at fifty was able  to bestow the remnant of himself on the  faithful Angeline, who had got to wearing spectacles, and false teeth, and had  turned corners.   It sounds delightfully  romantic, but to live through such un  experience is enough to break down tho _  nervous  system of the strongest  wo- -  man in existence- and make her   wish  there had nover been any such institution as an "engagement" to anybody.  WRONG TO BOTH PARTIES.  A self-respecting man has no right  to bind a woman to a long and indefin-  ate engagement; and a girl is too Softheaded to be of much consequence in  -  the world   who will consent to be   so  bound.    It  is  wrong, to   both   parties.  Life is not long enough to be passed in  such  an    uncertain  way.     Marriages  contracted in middle life may be happy  "���������oftentimes they are; but youth is the  time, for love and marriage.   As a man  or  woman grows older, principles and  opinions, as well as habits, become more  fixed, and it is much more difficult for  either    parly    to yield   a  point,    and  thero has to bo a good deal of yielding  by  somebody  if married life   is   to  be  harmonious.  An engaged girl is practically nobody. She cannot go hero, or go there;  she cannot do this, or that, as a girl  who is free can do, because he might  not like it. Young men stand uloof  from her because she is Dick's property  and   they   respect  Dick's   rights.  Her liberties are abridged, herr enjoyments are curtailod and all she can  do   is   to  wait���������and  hope.  She is an odd number everywhere,  unless Dick happens lo be around to  attend to her, but he is generally away  somewhere, earning tho money to get  married on and flirting with some other   girl    to keep his  courage  up.  After two or three years go by people begin to say: "Oh, he'll never  marry Angeline. He'll find somebody  else he like3 better.  And they are gen irally right. Probably he doesn't mean to unconstant,  but it is an' awful strain on a man to  be engaged for a term of years and behave and pose as a model meanwhile���������  especially if he meets many young women who are quite ready to help him  forget   he  is  engaged.  INSUFFERABLY MONOTONOUS.  No, we don't believe in marrying  until one's mind is made up and ona  knows what one warns;,but, when once  you have made your decision, it is better to go right to business. Susptnse in  any of the affairs of life is wearing  and insufferably monontonous. The'  girl who waits eight- or ten year3 for  the man who is going to marry her  some time must have many anxious  moments, as she sees her youth ^nd  bloom slipping away from her and  notes the crow's feet at the corners of ,  her eyes and tho gray hair on her  temples.  Her friends are married long ago,  and have homes and babies of their  own; and no matter if they do have '  domestic squalls now and then, it varies the monontony and it is nice to  make up and be friends again.  Nine times out of ten.an engagement���������  that  runs  along, tor a   term  of years'  partner    in      the   business    generally     ,  never amounts to anything.   The male"  marries somebody else who has "sand"  enough to brinj him to terms at once,  and the waiting woman is' left to vain  regrets   and  hopeless  old-maidism. ������������������''������������������  ���������*  No girl should ever constnt to wait  an, indefinite time for a.', man. Let  both be'free, and if they choose to  wait, that is their business; but a wor  man should.never doom herself to drag  out years and years of her life hampered by an engagement.  We know of one instance where a  courtship extended over,a period of  fifty-two years, and then, when the  gentlemen was seventy-nine and the  lady two years younger, they decided  to give the whole j thing up because  they were too old.

There is probably no farming question as to-which' there is so wide disagreement among farmers as there is  about the cost of milk. It undoubtedly coata more in winter than it does  im summer, and this-was especially  true under the old tiime system of feeding on dry hay and corn-stalks, with  sometimes a little grain for variety,  which, however, usually went' to make  fat on the body rather than to increase  the milk flow. There was no inducement in those days to have'cows calve  iui the Tall fox the fresh flow came  at a season when it was almost impossible to keep it up. Milk is always dearer ill winter than in summer,  but under these conditions the slightly  Increased price did not pay the extra-  cost, and.all the winter made milk had  to be sold at a loss. .      .  Now, however, a farmer who has a  basement barn and silos to ensilage  his corn fodder can have cows drop  their calves in,the fall with some confidence that the winter product will  pay its cost. Corn fodder is so much  cheaper llian is pasture on high-priced  -land that if it can bo given in succulent form and if cows can be protected  from winter's cold the winter's milk  does not cost any more than that made  in summer, where (he main dependence is on pasture We believe that  good pasture m Juno will bring more  milk from a new milk cow than Hvill  any otfher feed. vBut that Is not saying uhat even .then it is the cheapest  feed. It must be remembered also  that June pasture fills out only a  small part of uhc summer.  The grass is saippy and. innutrious  in May, and by July or August it either grows hard or woody or dries up so  that cows will nob eat so much of it,  and what they do eat will not make  so much milk. So great is the need  of extra feed for cows at tihis time that  corn drilled for fodder is often cut before it has even got into blossom, and  when it c*f course has very little nutrition. So soon as corn matures sufficiently, that will furnish a ration that  will materially increase .the milk flow  in cows at pasture.

Soil is not an inert, lifeless mass of  dirt, essentially unclean and unworthy  of thought or attention, but is a live  and complex substance in which constant change is taking place, as 'an  immense kitchen in "which food is  made and prepared for plant roots. All  soils are formed .from rocks by the action of freezing and thawing, rain,  running water and glaciers. They are  made up ciiiefly of particles of rock  of varying sizes. The fertility of tho  soil depends \o a considerable degree  upon the size of its particles. The  soil contains decayed and decaying vegetable matter and this material gives  sell its dark color and adds to fertility. It is the home of countless numbers of minute creatures, too small to  be seen, that arc constantly at work  causing decay of vegetable matter and  making plant food. Animals, including all the higher) forms, depend upon  plants fotr life. Plants live upon and  iin the scit. Without soil all animal  life and all higher foorins of plant  life would,be imi<ossible_.

Some fortunate people are born  with a gift for packing; they can stow  away their best belongings in the  neatest litllo rolls, that fit as though  by magic into the most diminutive  sections of space, coming out fresh and  vigorous at tho end of a long journey,  as (hough thoy had never, been packed  at all. Others, again with much  thought and a vast expenditure of time  and labor, manage to get packed in  the largest possible'amount- of space,  and with dire results to their mosl  treasured  belongings.  One who had strong suspicions that  she belonged to the latter class caught  one of the gifted sisterhood 'at a favorable moment, and demanded, as it  were at the point of the bayonet, an  account of the method by which she  obtained such satisfactory results.  The suggestions thus obtained were  crystallized as follows:  Have ready as -large a trunk as is  consistent with any regard for the  muscles of those who arc to move it  about, and for the.doorways and staircases which may be scraped in its  transportation; also for tho moderate  size of tho room one is usually assigned'on travelling'tours. Barring  these objections, a largo trunk is  preferable in every way to 'two smaller  ones, besides the double cost of delivering the latter. The same space is  more available in its entirety than  when divided, and the larger garments  are free from wrinkling f'  BECAUSE OF LESS FOLDING.  iFirst remove all dust from the  trunk, "both outside and inside, and  then lay at the bottom of the trunk,  and^also at the bottom of the tray  or trays, a sheet of thin wadding between two pieces of silosia. A layer  of boxes and heavy articles should go  in,   first,  and fit    as  tightly  as pos-  brittle ware, the safest way to manage  them is to procure a tin box large  enough for all that one needs to take,  wrap each one separately in (thin sheet  wadding or other soft, material, and  pack closely enough to prevent their  moving. Wrap and tie the box  securely, and the liquids will make the  trip without damage to themselves or  their neighbors. The tin box will  last indefinitely, and when off duty  it - may be kept with thea rolls of  wadding in tho trunk to be in readiness  when needed.  About hats? Every one knows that  a large hat-box attached to the upper  tray is indispensable, and in this they  should be securely fastened to keep  them from knocking against the sides.

Some of the clover will be soiled) so t.'ha.t the cow will  ��������� not touch it through the remainder of  the season.  Every farmer who has pastured clover knows that toward fall, while most  of the ground will be eaten  down al  most to the roots, there will be a 'con-   terest  in the end.  that hit; or her illness is the most absorbing thing and to realize that the  doctor is thinking more of that than  of anything else. If this is neglected  the patient's thoughts are very much  inclined to dwell on what seems a  slight neglect or indifference, and to  a sick man that may assume importance. Cheerful talking, about other  matters and any other agreeable tricks  may be all very well in their way, but  it is necessary always to get back to  the  source  of   the  patient's  chief   in-  siderable portion that .has grown hard  and woody, so .that it has little nutritive value.,.-. When the clover is eaten  off early, the second growth promptly  springs up and is both palatable and  nutritious. That is what grows up  after the first crop has been cut'for  soiling or for hay. A second, third  and even fourth crop of clover may  be grown if" .the soil is rich enough,  and each one will be more! nutritious,  than the first.. ' This repeated cutting  of clover is far better for the root  growth than pasturing it can be, for  im pasturing the constant tramipling of  the ground hurts the plant and lessens both its root and top growth. In  .short, clover will usually produce not  only three times as-much feed when  "cut with a scythe or mower as when-  pastured, but i/t is nearly or qiute  three times as much benefit to the  land. ;AVhen the clover is cut more  or less leaves,fall upon the soil, and it  is line rotting 'of'these that double  and treble the growth that ,,the clover  Would otherwise make. The cow returns only the excrement from the  clover she eats, but that is not in condition to help the clover growth materially   tSe  same   season.  , TALK TO YOUR HORSE.  Some man unknown to the writer  hereof, has given to the world a saying that sticks: "Talk to your cow as  you would a lady." There is a world  of common sense in it.

This  ,was difficult enough at times, but he  managed to stick to the rule as much  as he could when there was necessity  for it,'which was most frequent in the  case of those persons not so sick as  they:   (bought   they  were.  " With them," he said, "a doctor has  always to be, most careful about the  niceties of sick-room behavior, for the  really iill are. rarely able to interest  themselves in these details. But it is  the patients who think themselves  sicker than they are that are a doctor's most profitable clients, and he  hue to be more careful of his conduct  with them than in a case of life- and  death. As a doctor makes more money  always out of persons only half sick  than from those who are dangerously  ilL he cannot afford to neglect, the  little things that make him popular  with them."  ��������� HUNGRY FOR A KISS.  :" The prettiest child story told lately is in French. A mother tells her little girl that because she has been  naughty she will not kiss her for a  week. Before two days have gono by  the child's lips hunger so for her mother's kiss that she begs her not to punish her any more. The mother says:  " No, my.dear ; I told you that I should  not kiss you/and I must keep my word.  " But, mamma, mamma," says the little girl, " would it be breaking your  word if you should kiss mo just once  to-night, when I'm asleep i"  sible. A deft packer declares that  thin dresses should come next, and  the heavier ones be laid on top of  them, as this will effectively prevent  the lighter stuffs from slipping about.  Many, however, will still prefer to put  summer silks and organdies on top.  Each skirt should be folded lengthwise through the middle, behind and  before, and then folded crosswise near  (he top. The waist, with sleeves carefully spread out, fits in - very sats-  factorily between the turned-over  top and the bottom of the skirt. Then  some pieces of underclothing, which  should generally be rolled to occupy  less room, with stockings, handkerchiefs, etc., for corners and interstices,  will make all taut and snug. Other  dresses follow in succession, all being  carefully treated us to evenness in the  folds, and made secure with underclothing and boots and shoes.  INTO THE TRAY.  Hats and neck-wear, gloves, etc., are  reserved for the upper tray, the  whole trunk being packed within an  inch of bursting; and yet it never  does so. Nor is a single article ever  injured; for, every space being filled,  the things aro obliged to stay where  they are put. This is the secret of  the excellent condition they are in  when   unpacked.  "A good rule," continued the oracle,  "is never to consider a trunk full because it seems impossible to close the  lid. No one who deserves the name  of a good packer will be discouraged  by any such appearance. By slipping  a hand in and about things wonderful openings for small articles will  appear in an apparently full trunk,  and corners are not easily filled to repletion."  .When every inch of ground is apparently occupied, and nothing gives  in any direction, press everything  close from end to end in the bottom'  of the trunk, and then add another  substantial layer. It will not hurt  the things.in the least; and, the tray  ought hot to, be put in'before this is  done.  "AVhat  goes  into  the  tray?"  Simply  everything that refuses to go into the  trunk.    All   the stockings can be  disposed of in the bitter.   Yes, it is full,  apparently, but one can find.by careful feeling through it very narrow interstices'    where    one stocking���������not  a  pair,    mind���������if    tightly and smoothly  rolled    to  about    the   thickness  of. a  cigar, can be comfortably stowed .away.  Shoes also can be more easily accqmr.  modaled singly���������a pair being quite unmanageable,  where  a single one  will  display considerable elasticity.  AVHAT COUNTS MOST.  It is really the unconsidered trifles  that    count    in  packing��������� tho   various  bottles and boxes, combs and brushes,  shoe polish, articles for the bath, etc.,  that make going away a weariness to  tho flesh, and awaken wondering recollections of a certain English woman  who arrived for a summer sojourn in  a- Maine    village,    attended by three  trunks   and two formidable boxes --  though all were "boxes" in her vocabulary.   Likewise, a large tin hat for  bathing    purposes.      And   on     being  commiserated,  in  prospect  of  her  departure, for the labor she would have  in  getting  her belongings ready, she  declared    that "if she    couldn't pack  'em all in an hour she'd eat 'eml"  To return to the bottles and other  Ite.vlval   in   I'.iirojii-   of a   Crime  Tltnl  Tail Axes Wits Uiillo, 4'oniiiiitn.  Love and money are the two great  incentives to the crime of murder by  qoisoning. Husband-poisoning still  flourishes in some (parts of Europe almost as it did in the days of the  Tofana. Eighteen women were only  the other week .tried for hufrband-  poisoning in Vienna, and nine of them  were found guilty. A year or two ago.  in another part of the European continent, over 6()| womon were proved to  -have got rid of their liege-lord-* by  the administration of the liquid refreshment that Vilikins found in the  garden by the, side of his dead Dinah.  When batches of women poisoners  are found in one district it proves that  a husband-killer hay informed her female-friends of Iher success, and given  them the recipe and told them whore  to get it made up. There is generally an old woavin who, posing as a  lortune-teller and manufacturer of  love-philtres, supplies the ladies of the  neighborhood with the means of being  off with the old'love,before taking up  with (he new. It js frquenlly noi until after a large number of bus-bands  have died suddenly} that suspicion becomes aroused.  THE EARLIER VICTLMS.  are  supposed  to  have  died  from  disease or natural causes, and are reverently   buiied  by   their  seemingly   disconsolate spouses.  In tho seventeenth century the  crime of poisoning had spread over  Europe like a pestilence. The Italians poisoned openly, and the hags La  Spar.a and La tCofana carried on a gig-  antie trade in a iiquid which was  clear and colorless as water , and  which ladies kept Jipon their dressing-  tables as openly as to-day ihey keep  eau de Cologne or lavender water.  When La Tofana, the fame of who--.e  "Aqua Tofana" was known in every  Iiuropean city, was arrested, it was  proved that she had been uccessory  to the death by poison of liOO persons.  The "Aqm" which she had been in (he  habit of supplying married ladies with  was ana'yzed, an'l was found, according to Hahnemann, the father of  homoeopathy, to be composed of arsenical nnult-al salts. It was generally administered in tea, chocolate or  soup. La Tofana was said to be so  .sympathetic with women' who wanted  lo get rid of their husbands that  when (hey couldn't.' afford to buy her  "How ,to be Happy though Married"  mixture,  she gave   it  to  them.  La  Tofana was eventually arrested  and strangled,  but poisoning continued to flourish in Italy, in France, and  in  England.   In  1682  over 0!) females  were  hanged in    -France  for    selling  poison  to women   who  wanted   to  get  rid of relativesf or friends for various  reasons, often, as  in the case of Mary  Ansell,   to get   a   little   ready  money.  The   epidemic of  poisoning    was    not  stamped out in' France (ill the beginning    of    the     eighteenth      century,  when in a ihort peariod over a hundred  persons   were   burnt   alive  or   hanged  for committing this* diabolical and  COWARDLY CRIME.  In England ot late there have been  signs of a fresh outbreak.   The infant  insurance scandal led to some terrible  revelations ot the   drugging  to  death  of helpless children,    and   strychnine  arsenic   began     to   play a prominent  part   in    domestic     tragedies.      Then  'we heard of ft number of cases of "unfortunates"    dying  suddenly    in   terrible  agony.'.'and  at last  a  miscreant  named  Neil   Cream,   who  poisoned   to  amuse' himself, wa>/ run to earth and  hanged.   There   have been    dozens of  poisoning  cases  since   then.      Walter  Horsford    was suspected    of    having  poisoned   at  least   two   women   before  he committed the  crime which Jed to  his arrest, and now we are face to face  with  a new danger in  "Poisoning  by  Pos(t."   That  is perhaps  of all  forms  of this odious crime the most dangerous to the community.   By clever people  with means,' it  could be  done in a  'wa:y    certain to    defy detection.      To  show sympathy for  the    perpetrators  of such a devlish deed, is to encourage  others lo  go  and  do  likewise.  Now that the postal system has  been called into the service of murder as a fine art, we may expect to  hear of murder by telephone before the  close of the centu'ry. The telephone  might be used in this way. Your  enemy has a weak hea^t, and a telephone in hist house. You ring him up  and when he says "Yes���������what is it?'  you say "Youn wife's dead," or something of the kind.'

The Fare'li, Uadly WlHlorled-Few C'nues of  (lie  Kind   Known,  and  Science   In  as  ���������   IVt llclplevi.  A woman in Bellevue hospital, New  York, is suffering from one of the  rarest and most terrible diseases known  to medical science. Tho patient is Mary  Fogerty, of No. 238 West Sixtieth  street. The name of her dread malady is acromegaly. In the history of  Bellevue hospital this is the first case  of the kind to bo recorded, and the  known instances of its appearance in  America can be counted by a single  figure.  The disease of acromegaly is the abnormal enlargement of the bones and  tissues of tho patient until the sufferer loses all semblance to a human  being.  Mary Fogerty, as she entered Bellevue hospital yesterday afternoon,  seemed more like a giant ape, dressed  in feminine apparel, than a woman of  51.  FEATURES MUCH DISTORTED.  The heavy brow, enlarged almost to  the size of an ordinary r human face,  overhung the eyes until the orbs wore  scarcely-visible. The nose flattened out  over tho enlarged cheek like a man's  hand. The woman's lower jaw protruded so far as to bo horrible to look  at, while tho ears, the 'only part of the  woman's face to remain normal, seemed ridiculously small in comparison.  For many mouths she had been suffering at tho home of her sister, Mrs.  McDonald, at Ihe address given, but  no ono knew what afflicted her until  the doctors at Bellevue recognized that  thoy had a case rare in medical annuls.  There is no cure for  the disease of  acromegaly.   Medical science does not  yet know its cause.   Only the terrible ���������  effects are recorded.  SOME CASES IN SWITZERLAND.  A few cases have come to notice in  the little valley in Switzerland, where  the goitre, another mysterious disease,  is frequent. There acromegaly attacks  the patient slowly. The sufferer, while  losing outward semblance to humanity  by the enlargement of the bones, ,a]so  deteriorates mentally and physically.  The mind becomes enfeebled, the  limb weak, until at the last stage, the  patient crawls on all fours like a child,  or more like an ape, so that the dis-  easo has come to be termed " transformation   into   a monkey."  Mary Fogerty has not yet reached  this si age, but she has so far advanced  towards it that the doctors at Roosevelt hospital, where she was at first  taken, diagnosed her case as similar  to senility.  Prominent specialists will be called  upon to examine the rare case at Bellevue, and, if possible, learn something  more   than  is known   of  its  nature.  RED ANT A BORN FIGHTER.  Olio   of Hit-   M������>.l   Amio.vliiK  1'ctLs  of She  Indian .limbic.  The   red ant is  a born fighter,  and  is   one   of    the  most   annoying    pests  oi the Indian jungle.   Not only is its  bite   extremely  painful,    but   its  tenacity is such that, having once driven  its  mandibles into your  flesh,  it  will  allcAv   itself    to  be  pulled    to  pieces  sooner than quit its hold. A traveller,  who recently spent some time in India,  writes:    I   was   on   one   occasion   witness   of   an   encounter   with   red  ants  that,     although    serious  enough    for  those directly concerned, had its amusing  side.    \\ hilo  out    with   a   forest  shooting    party  I   observed   the   elephant immediately in front of the one  1   was  riding  tear  down  a long  overhanging   deeper   that   depended   from  the  boughs overhead. Almost immediately   a colony  or red  anis  descended  in  a shower on  the heads of  the  unfortunate occupants of the guddee, or .  cushioned seat, on the elephant's pad.  The scene  that followed  was  a lively  and exciting one.      The  victims,  who  were all natives,  made frantic efforts  to escape,  for   ihe   insects,   angry  at  having   been    thus  rudely    disturbed,  attacked   them  furiously.    One  native  gentleman, yelling with pain, made a  most     undignified    retreat,    by    way  of  a back somersault  over    the    elephant s tail,while the mahout, driver,  leapt  from  his  perch   into a mass  of  undergrowth,   where  he  made  frantic  attempts to free himself from his venomous   attackers.   The   two   or   three  remaining     natives,      after     dancing  wildly   on   the  pad,   pawing   tho    air,  thrashing    themselves,    and    making  other efforts to dislodge the intruders,  finally slid down the side and howled  for   assistance.   As   for   the   elephant,  which by virtue at it's tough hide was  ant-proof,  it stood complacently  look-  in on, and doubtless wondering' what  could    have   occasioned    the    strange  antics of its riders.   It took us a long  time  to clear  the  pad. of  the  red  invaders,    which   literally    covered    it;  while  as  for the bitten  natives,  they  had lost all further appetito for hunting   that  day 1,  A LONG  BEARD.

BOTH SIDES.  There aro many   things   connected  with the present strike, or lock-out, in  tho Slocan that the public do not fully  understand, and it might not be out of  place to point them out,   As the law  has made  eight hours a day, the men  are in no respect to blame for t-iking  advantage of it.   It may also be conceded that eight hours is long,enougb  to  work in  many of the tunnels, and  that everything considered $3.50 is  as  little as good men can work for.   This  is the argument on  one side.   The argument on the other is that it was a  sad mistake for tho legislature to interrupt the good feeling that existed  between   employers    and   employees,  which   lias thrown   tho country into  worse than confusion, without tiny serviceable results.  The   union,   too,   are   daily   doing  things  that cannot result in   ntlvant-  , ages  to   worthy   men in   their    own  order and which must work injury to  employers.   They are perfectly justified in getting nil the good men  they  can  to join the* union, so long as they  do not go to the mines to solicit them.  It is the world over disingenious   to  take  employees irom work   at which  they are satisfied and receiving their  pay promptly.   Some may consider the  contract ������ystem bad ;   but it is found  the world over the  only one that can  he adopted where large public works  are involved.   Governments adopt the  contract system in all their dealings as  tho only  one   practicable.    Just  the  other clay they let the  building of a  new school house in this city, and it  was by contract.   In many cases miners are now taking  contracts.    They  know just whut they have to do,  and  should know 'what they can make out  of them.   In some instances the unions I  have interfered  after   a binding  contract is made between man and man,  and asked the employers to guarantee  the men 53.50  a day on the work or  they would be  called out.   The injustice of this lies in  forcing men to  repudiate   a   contract   they voluntarily  made,  and in asking   an employer to  pay i3.50 a day  regardless of the way  men work without   an  overseer.     Jf  the men,  in such a case,  were so disposed they could enforce a premium  on indolence, which, of course, 110 honorable miner would like   to see   tho  case.  The general public would like to see  the men, one and all, get all they are  worth, as tho employment is by 'no  means a congenial one; but there are  two sides to this as well as ail other  questions. In our humble opinion, if  the union would see to it that they had  none bnt good men���������none enrolled in  objectionable ways���������to offer to the  owners, and intimated they desired tho  business people or the judges to mediate, a settlement satisfactory all around  could readily be reached. The Review  is wholly disinterested in this matter,  and has no other desire than to see a  settlement reached, honorable to both  parties alike, and giving the best measure of justice to each of the parties  most concerned.  There is no doubt that there is a  great tendency on the part of capital  to grind labor; hut the theory is'only  .. applicable where the facts coincide  with it. It is generally conceded that  $3.50 a shift was a liberal wage to the  miners of the Slocan, who day in and  day put did not work more than' nine  hours, and the legislature should have  left the matter so till men and owners  amicably made different arrangements  between themselves. ���������''  Should take with them a supply  of Dr. Fowler's Ext. ot  Wild Strawberry.

The result is that  capital is driven away from tho country, further sales that would give employment to idle men  are choked off,  business men are driven to their beam  ends, and the treasury is losing money  that is_ badly needed for public   improvements.     Do the gentlemen, who  forced this Act through the House, imagine that their return to parliament,  thiough an Act of this character, is a  full recompense to the country for the  loss it is sustaining through the enactment?

We believe the War  Eagle is a good property, but there  have been no developments in its work-  ing.during the Inst few months to warrant the unprecedented rise in the  price of stock. Doubtless the output  of the LeRoi.and the fact that the War  Eagi'e is adjacent to it, may have had  something to do with the rise. But  this is too far a fetched argument to  be forcible to a sensible man.  All told, to date the LeRoi has paid  but$850,000 in dividends, which, on its  present stocking, is nothing to warrant  such inflation as the Was Eagle has  met with, even if those profits accrued  to the latter. We have said before.and  we repeat it again, all this booming  and inflating will eventually work serious injury to the country and should  be discouraged. In a prospect value  should ascend as indications improve,  and in a mine stocks should advance  as dividends increase, and no more.  This is ail there is in the business to  vary market values, and the sooner the  public know it the better for themselves and the future of this country.  STOCK JOBBERY.  Our paternal government must by  this time have come to the conclusion  that their eight-hour law, with the  cat's claw conditions attached, is working wonders for the country. Contrary  to what Bro. Houston says in tho Tribune, the "liberal" laws of the province  have done but little for most of the owners of the Slocan as they bought their  mines and paid for them in cash. They  have, therefore, a perfect right to open  and close them when they like, even if  closing results in a serious loss to the  country. Capital and labor were working together harmoniously, when a few  pettifoggers, without the brains to  evolve any legislation that might advance them in the estimation of the  public through its beneficial consequences, got it into, their heads they  would pass this law, with its heretofore  unheard of   penal clauses, to  capture  the close of the last elections, or was  governed by the same rules of propriety that influenced him then, he would  at once dismiss   the   Semlin government.   If, however, he allows Semlin  to hold office till' the end of the year,  the latter, according to constitutional  usage is entitled to a dissolution either  before meeting the House, or after suffering defeat in it, as  ho has  not yet  once appealed on his principles.   With  all the possibilities ahead   and undefined, the outcome cannot be even surmised ;  but one thing is certain���������the  Semlin government   is doomed. "* It is  also equally certain  that in  a general  election there will be three or four factions  in the njht.   It is  morally certain that the Grits and Tories will put  up candidates.   As Martin's leadership  will not be accepted by tho Grits, he  will doubtless   head a   taction of  his  own, and eater to the worst passion of  the electors.   From the indications, so  far shown, it is also   morally certain  that Semlin will put up a fight on the  merits of the Semlin government. This  will give us  four factions���������more than  there ever were among the Kilkenny  cats.  es  Having opened business in the  premises opposite the Clifton house, I  am prepared to do all kinds of Boon  and Shoe Making and Repairing in the  latest and neatest style.

Home brokers may, when  acting honestly, be of much service,  and do much to promote the interests  of the country, as they rarely operate  on the gambling principle, and invariably have a knowledge of properties  they handle.   The outside broker, on  the other hand, handles stock as wheat  is handled on the gambling markets of  Chicago.   Every little exciting, report,  foundeil or otherwise, inflates or flattens the prices,   and   purchasers   and  sellers make money or are bitten accordingly, without the slightest change  in the indications of the property.

SCOTT &BOWNE, Chemists Toronto  In nearly all trades and callings on  the continent in which they have unions, excepting mining, applicants  must have have had a certain length of  training before they are eligible for  membership. Mining, however, appears to be an exception, and why it  should be so, it is most difficult to understand.' A man with a few months'  experience will come to this country  and go into a mine at ^3.00 a day,  which may be really more than he is  worth; and, forthwith, he is asked to  join the union as a fully fledged miner  who will ask ������3.50 a day. This is  really unjust to the efficient miners in  the union, and certainly unfair to ,em-  ploytrs ���������it is a demand for something  for nothing, which no man ought ; to  be asked to give.

He introduced the'Bill under  which the men get $3.00 for 8. instead;  of 10 hours. During all this time the  men of the Slocan were getting 13.50  for $10 hours for softer rock, and when  the shift was reduced they want the  usual $3.50, while the LeRoi men aro  getting the usual $3;00.

In the window of The Thompson  Stationery Company is a copy of the  lithographed cover of- the Dawson  Daily News' midsummer number. The  coverpage is the work of the Province  Lithographing Company of Vancouver,  and wab ordered for and sent north  with the forty-ton outfit shipped on  June 10, to furnish Dawson with its  first daily newspaper. The company  was formed and promoted by a member of the Miner staff, who sold his  interest in tho enterprise the night before the boat left Seattle.  It now transpires that the, sale was a  wise one, for the undertaking met with  many annoyances, and Dawson has  quieted down to a whisper. The type  setting machine was dismembered in  shipment, and part of it is lost between  ' Seattle and Dawson, with little prospect of its being found this year. The  operator, however, the swiftest operator on the Coast, will continue to  draw his salary of $300 per month,  pending the'arrival of the balance of  the machine.

Hughes and McMicken, of  Seattle, have quit work on the Montezuma group and handed over the property to Messrs. Byers. Whitticr and  McLean, the trustees for the creditors.  Messrs^ Hughes and McMicken have  for the last 18 months put up money  for development work and the property has a very favorable showing.  They assert that under the eight-hour  system they were getting but three  blasts for every two shifts, instead of  four as formerly, and the work was  rendered ' so comparatively expensive  that they were unwilling to go on."  Here is an unqualified declaration,  after a full trial had been made of the  eight-hour shifts, that miners cannot  ,and will not do as much work in eight  hours as in ten. One pound of evidence like this, after a fair trial, is  worth a ton of theory or interested assertion.  The Nelson Tribune says :  , "I. N. Peyton, when manager of the  great LeRoi mine, reduced wages from  ������3.50 to $3, and ������3 has been the rate in  Trail Creek ever since for hand drill  crs.  ���������>���������������**  ��������� _ Another reduction just as  unfair was made at tho Silver King  mine at Nelson, when wages were cut  Irom $3.50 to $3 a day at the suggestion  of a consulting engineer, who had  never been a day in British Columbia."  In tho face of all this, the Tribune,  and all prints like it, have their guns  continually on the Slocan owners, as if  they were the only men who ottered  $3 for 8 hours,' when the facts are the  mines above named paid but. ������3 for 10  hours, and for work' much harder than  drilling Sandon slate.  We'are not sure the Nelson Miner's  contention that Finance Minister Cotton should be dismissed from the cabr  snet by the premier for falsification of  the records of the council is sound. In  ihe first place noone but Joseph Martin says Cotton falsified them. If the  accusation is, true surely the rest of the  ministers would know it a* well as  Martin. If it is true and they submit  to it, they are as bad as' Cotton. The  fact; however, that they refuse to .endorse ��������� Martin's contention is fairly  good proof that it is not true.  MRS. GILHULA.  Some twelve years  ago Mrs. Elizabeth  Gilhula,wife of the  postmaster of Buxton, Ont., was taken  ill with an obscure  stomach trouble  which her physicians pronounced  cancer of the stomach and informed  her that her lease of  lite would be short.  On the advice oi  friends she commenced taking Burdock  Blood Bitters. The results that followed  were little short of marvellous. Her  strength and vigor returned and in a short  time she was completely cured. Mrs.  Gilhula is to-day in the full enjoyment of  good health, and in all these years there ha3  not been the slightest return of the trouble.  Here is the letter Mrs. Gilhula wrote at  the lime of her cure:  "About four years ago I was taken sick  with stomach trouble and consulted several  of the leading physicians here, all of whom  pronounced the disease to be cancer of the  stomach of an incurable nature, and told  me that it was hardly to be expected that  I could livelong. Afterward the two doctors  who were attending me gave me up to die.  "By the advice of some of my friends,  who know of the virtues of Burdock Blood  Bitters, I was induced to try it, and I am  now happy to say that after using part of  the first bottle I felt so much better I was  able to get up. I am thankful to state that  I am completely cured of the disease by the  use of B.B.B., although it had baffled the  doctors for a" iong time. I am firmly convinced that Burdock Blood Bitters saved  my life."  Here is the letter received from her a short  time ago :  " I am still in good health. I thank  Burdock Blood Bitters for saving my life  twelve years ago, and highly recommend  it to other sufferers from stomach troubles  of any kind." Elizabeth Gilhula. '  /!

Major    Steele  was commanding the police there, and  in spile of firm measures L'lio  miners  were beginning to got a HLtlo out of  hand.      One night ic culminated in a  -riot,      Sergeant    Fury,   a determined,  bull-dog   little  roan,   was  sent,     wit'ii  '      two constables,    to  arrest; tho    ringleaders.     The gang had possession of  a saloon.     Fury walked in, alad going  straight  up to   tho    mail he  wanted,  paid: "Come with me; I arrest you."  Of course it was an invitation that  the turbulent miner had no idea'of accepting.      Fury reached out���������'��������� persuasively with his left hand, clutched.him  by   the  collar  in  an  iron  grip,     and  backed for   the    door.      It  was    like  ,.,"; throwing  a lamb among a cageful of  hungry tigers.     There was a mob    of  Bwaying,  swearing miners in front of  the little sergeant .which his    two assistants    wore  vainly   trying  to  keep  back.     A liuge desperado made a rush  at   Fury  from ; behind.      Ho  felt   him  coming, and   without looking around  fired point-blank    over    'his shoulder,  and brought hint to the ground winged.     It had a soothing effect upon the  others, and the police got their prison-  ex out on ttib road before the crowd  had. time  to get worked ip into a passion  again.  It was some little distance to the  barracks, and as they hurried the unwilling captive along tho road, they  saw che miners coming for them again.  "There'll be same quare wurk this  .time," laughed Corporal Hethering-  tou, for hu was of the party. Just as  it'hey pulled ;their -prisoner over a  bridge which spanned a little stream,  a figure came tearing down the road  from the barracks with a sword in one  band and a revolver in the other. It  was the commander, Major Steele,  whom the noise of the fighting had  roused ��������� from a bed , of illness. ' He  planted himself firmly in the middle of  the bridge, and vowed to kill the first  member of the mob that attempted to  pass.  It was settled that tune as it always  is. No prisoner is ever given up by  the Northwest Mounted Police once the  law demands that he be arrested. The  miners knew enough of Steele to know  that he would keep his word, also that  their comrade would have a fair,  t Bquare trial; that much Steele promised them.  _ Not    that    prestiigo  and determination carry the  point always.      Sometimes   the    desperadoes   turn  on    the  policeman,  handicapped by  his  orders  to arrest and not kill, i and  the death  dew gathers dampon his face, and the  regimental number is all. that is. left  of him in the force.     Duck Lake is the  "Five Points" of  the  Northwest.      it  lies  100 miles  north of  Regina,     the  capital of the Territories.     Last year  five white men���������four policemen and one  civilian���������and three Indians lay, dead on  the prairie with their faces to tho sky,  to the end  that the peace broken by one  Indian  outlaw migh't be made  whole.  Almighty Voice, son of John Sounding  8ky, was hungry,and killed a cow. The  ���������first little  irregularity  was  that   the  sow belonged to somebody else. Therefore  a Bergeant  of  police  and  a half-  bred guide    rode forth  to    bring Almighty Voice before a magistrate. As  they rode along they heard the report  of a gun.    They turned from the trail,  ��������� and   came   suddenly   upon   the   Indian  and two squaws. He had just killed a  prairie  chicken.  "Tell  him  I've  come  to arrest him for killing cattle," .said  the sergeant to the guide.  "Tell him if he advances I'll kill  him !" answered Almighty Voice.  Sergeant Colbrook rode quietly for-  ' ward.    The   guide  covered  the  Indian  with his carbine, but the sergeant made   him put it down again. "We have no  authority to kill," he said, "We've  some to arrest only. Tell hinv to lay  flown his arms," he added, as he rode  aleadily forward.  '...-.-  A few paces more, and there came another warning from the Indian at bay.  .The sergeant, according to his code,  had .no choice. He could not; retire;  he had no authority to shoot the Indian ; his orders were simply to arrest  him, evem if it cost bim his life���������-and it  did. Another pace, and the fire belched from the muzzle of the Cree's gun.  nnd Sergeant . Colgbrook fell shot  through the heart. The guide's code  was not so high He could retire, and  he did, very faBt.  That was the beginning. A price was  Bet upon the murderer's head : he was  declared an outlaw, and for a thousand miles north the red-coated riders  watched for Almighty Voice. While  they scoured the land far and wide,  Almighty Voice lived for many moons  shielded by his Indian friends at Duck  Lake.    ',.'.������������������ ���������,'���������-'  One  day a horse was stolen,  and   a  half-breed   scout    with   a    companion  started - to round up the thief.  They  caught, him.   As   they  were   bringing  him through a. clump of poplars astride  of a knock-kneed cayuse he disappeared   as   if    by  magic.   Then7 Almighty  Voice appeafer upon the'scene, and the  scout was soon galloping for dear life  ���������for the little life that was loft him,  for   a     bullet:  had     gone     crashing  through   his  back,- and  the  slayer  of  Sergeant  Colbrook    was running  like  the   wind  at  his  horse's  heels,  making savage clutches    at the swishing  tail.   Bending  low    along his  horse's  neck, the scout rode with reeling brain,  'One clutch of those dark, sinewy hands  In his steed's tail, and-the next instant  a  knife would be at  his  throat.   The  horse gained a little���������the prey was escaping.   The pursuer stopped for an instant, and his fierce black eye,',* gleamed along a gun-barrel.   Thebiillet cut  through the cowboy hat of. the scout,  tad severed the woven hair bridle be  tween the horse's ears. The bit dropped from the horse's mouth, and under the new freedom ho sped faster.  Almighty  Voice gave  up ��������� the ohase.  Over the wire the news was flashed  into i'rinco' Albert, and Captain Allen and a detachment of police rode  eighty miles that night. Almighty  Voice had two other killings to attend  to, but that ride caught him in a trap.  In tho morning the police were recon-  noitering from >.little hill. Allon saw  three vertical biota on tho landscape.  As ho looked they seainpored into a  bluff on all fours like door. " That's  an old game," he', said. " Thoy aru the  men   we're  after."  They surrounded tho bluff. As Captain Allon patrolled close to'tho bushes  he suddenly saw something which made  him lean far down along tho side of  his horse, but he was, loo lato. He  heard tho bone of his right arm'snap  like a piece of glass, and his hand  swung limp as a rag at his side. Tho  bullet from Almighty Voice'o rifle had  smashed through his arm close to the  shoulder. The exchange of leaden cards  had beenmutual. A 4-1 bullet from Allen's revolver had scorched its . way  through Almighty Voice's ankle.  Thrown from his horse by the shock,  the officer crawled like , a wounded  duck into tho thick grass of the prairie. When he had gone a little distance, he raised himself oh one kneo,  only to look along the cold steel barrel  of a rifle and into the merciless\eyes  of Almighty Voice., Ho knelt for the  space of five Beconds looking into the  face of death, expecting every minute  tho crash of the leaden messenger.  Without uncovering his wounded  quarry, the Indian pointed with two  fingers and said, " Throw me your cartridge belt."  The Captain understood; the Indian  would not waste a cartridge upon him  now that ho was disabled; he heeded  tkemVall for defense. Where he stood  'W, the edge of the oush ho was covered, and would not expose himself by,  coming out to finish his man with a  knife. "Throw me your cartridges or  I'll kill you," he said in Cree,  "Nove-r I" answered Allen.  Just then there was the crack of a  carbine, and a bullet spat, against tho  truink of a poplar and went zipping  off through the light branches. A  con-stable had sighted the Indian; the  latter jumped back among the trees.  Temporary repairs kept Allon from  bleeding to dealh. They tried burning  thei Indians out, but the, poplars were  toa green. ', Then three constables���������  Hawkin, Kerr and Lundy���������crept in  through the-thick, dangerous -undergrowth of the bluff to drive them out.  Their- few, comrades keeping guard oh  glanced.  Thoy recovered one of their wounded  comrades a little later, and inch by  inch worked their way backward,  dragging him' between them. All that  night thoy guarded the bluff. Once  Almighty Voice tried to oreep out, but  waH Urivtvn buck. In the morning ������  little trail and a crutch dropped from  tho blood-stained hands,of. tho Indian  showed whore he had tried' to escape.  About midnight Almighty Voice called  to tho police, "Brothers, we've had o  good fight to-day, I've worked hard  and am hungry. ' You've plenty of  grub; send mo in some. To-morrow  we'll finish the fight."  Tho moxt day the fight was like a  Roman spectacle. A small hill near  by,was covered by Indian and half-  breed spectators. - fl'ho old tan-faced  mother, ofi Almighty Voice sat there  and crooned ii: weird death-sohg, and  cheered hor< 'boy to fight to tho death  like an Indian brave: ; She screamed  defiance to tho police���������her son would  slay many more of them. But his end  was drawing near. A field gun had  been brought up from Kegiua ; a few  sheila were thrown'into tho bluff, and  iheun a charge was made. It was difficult charging through that thick  growth, but when the smoke cleared  away, the pit hold three dead Indians,  and it was 'all quiet along tho Saskatchewan" once more.  uVIany   special    bodies of    troops in  Europe such as the Guards, are filled  with men over six feet,   in the Northwest the need is - different.     Abnormally large men 'would only be an incumbrance on the long rides, breaking  down both themselves and their horses.   A combination of sinew, strength,  endurance,  brain, and    a    fair moral  tone is necessary to make up tho man  who is expected to ride oftentimos day  and night wiLhout eating or sleeping,  to hold��������� his I own,; in  a  foot-race or, a  fight with a swift Indian or half-breed;  and  also show  by example    that    the  Northwest Territories, are to bo developed  and governed along the lines  of  order and industry.   The returns from  the different posts show that physically the men aro admirably fitted to fill  this bill.   In height their average runs  about    five feet  nine inches,  with    a  chest measurement of tkirLy-oighl and  one-half    inches.   ! Recruits   aro    subjected, to a searching medical examination before being taken on.   Tho aim  is "to make it a difficult force to get  into,  and an easy ono to get out of."  The result is a fine body of contented  men and few'; desertions.  In addition to their actual duties as  peace officers, the police are supposed  to gather for the government information on every subject- under the sun���������  ON  LIGHT  DUTY.  the outside heard at regular 'Intervals  th������ rifles speak, but no message camo  froanl the deep ������hi'dows of the aspens.  No fleeing Indian darted into tho open,  no erhoke-grfmed, red-coated policeman  struggled forth holding a dark captive. There was nothing but the occasional sharp crack of a rifle, the  yell of defiance of an Indian, and then  sileince-^eavy, oppressive silence..Aft-  elr: a time there was nothing but sil-  ei'dce, no call from the constables to  their friends on the outside, no word  from the rifles���������nothing but the ominous stillness. The hearts of the watch-  era grew heavy, and well they might,  for the three brave troopers were lying with their white set faces looking  up at the blue vault, their bodies torn on roads  by the bullets that had been fired at   modes  of  the sun that shines between the forty-  ninth parallel and the Arctic Ocean;  the slate of the crops, the conditions of  the ranches, the breeds of horses and  catlle most suitable to their individual  localities; their opinions on the different ordinances relating, to the.protection of cattle ranches; even statistical  returns to show where the best markets are and how they can be reached..  Should a Rancher kill a steer and bring  the carcass in for-sale, the law says  that he must also bring the hide bearing his brand to show that in a moment of forgetfulness, he has not killed his neighbor's animal.. The police  must see that he does this. Thoy must  have constructive ability,: and report  and bridges, and different  transit���������from,   the   humble  them from the distanceof a few paces, j cayuse   to the  swift-rushing   ,railway.  With  the persistence  characteristic , The  settlers, arrivnig  in the  country  of the force,    two men,'O'Kelly .and'are- under the watchful eye of   these  Cook, went in to do what three had  failed to accomplish. As he wormed  his way along on'his stomach,'O'Kelly  made a discovery. The Indians, with  devilish ingenuity, had made three,  runways leading, up to a certain point  by breaking the small bushes off close  to> the ground, These led to.a deathtrap���������a pit dug by the Indians with  their knives. At the other end of  each! was' a hawk-eyed Iradian with a  leveled rifle. It was in these little  runways that the three policemen had  been shot  The  paths  guardians'; their physical moral and  financial conditions are .duly observed  and reported' to headquarters..-If the  Mormon settlement or the colony of  Mennonites. have 900 cattle and 600  sheep, those in authority will know it,  for a "Rider of tho Plains," will have  it all , jotted down in his note-book.  Just, how much gold per day the miner  takes from the sands of the Saskatchewan is also known; and how much he  pays a ton for tho coal he burns during the long winter months.   You will  raits gave the police no end of trouble, bo long as the owner of a permit held it in hifl, hand he was entitled to the possession of five gallons  of liquor,, though the keg had been  drained twenty times. A saloon-keeper with friends who held permits could  store a large , Block of smuggled liquor and snap his. fingers at tho police. It was an article of faith that  men who triod to bring in liquor by  means lawful or otherwiso were public benefactors; whilo the police, who  wore trying to interrupt this wholesale  trade, woro- men to bo put far astray  and shrined on a hog'b back.  Many and various were the tricks resorted to by the men stricken with a  thirst engendored of lifo in that high,  dry atmosphere. , A consignment of Bibles, to Edmonton proved full of a spirituous consolation that caused thorn to  sell' as readily as' hot cakes , to people  who previously had taken very little  interest in Christian literature. That  the Bibles were tin did not matter in  the slightest.  A high-rolling gambler j "Bull Dog"  Carney,! once ran a, car-load of smuggled whiskey into Golden. The police  got knowledge of it, and after many  up and downs confiscated most of it.  " It was a sight to make your heart  ache, sor," the sergeant who told me  about it assured me. " A carload of  whisky spilled out on the ground before a squad of moni thirsty to their  very sowls. Surely a'little keg wouldn't have been missed from all . that  lot���������a wee little keg,'" ho added plaintively.  Upon another .occasion, when there  had:,bebn a lawful seizure of "moonlight," the superintendent in charge  had seen every package broached and  its contents erupt ied out upon tho  ground, even to the last " wee little  keg." Tho ruby-tinted nectar had  gurgled forth and sunk into the  parched earth before the eyes of a  thirsly file of inwardly groaning policemen. But when the bugle piped melodiously for stables, there was not a  corporal's guard to feed the many  horses; and the superintendent took  counsel with himself, and wont on a  tour of inspection. Ho jabbed; viciously with his walking-stick at the brown  spot of earth where the -liquor,"many  times emptied, had burned away the  grass. His stick wont through the  crust-'of earlh, and struck something  which gave back a hollow, complaining sound. It was the bottom of a  tub. On top of the tub was an old  iron grate; on top.of that the earth.  It was a very peculiar geological formation, hot described in any of tho  works. The superintendent spoke never a word, for silence is a gold coin  studded with rubies; doubtless some  wicked men had pu't it there to bring  discredit upon the force. When the  next lot of seized liquor was to bo emp-'  tied, ho said to tho sergeant: "We'll  take this to a new placo, and give the  grass a chance to grow in the ; old  spot."  (To Be Continued.)  HOW THE BRAIN WDEKS.  THE   CHIEF   OF   THE   ORGAN  WORRY AND SHOCK.  ARE  ger is telegraphed to the optic lobe,  and thence a message is sent to the  motor urea to turn and wa<Lk away  But, supposing it be dork, how ax*  the motor cella to,,receive instructioje.  and. guide the individual in walking t  Ho feels with his hands and feet, and  tho sensorry cells receive messages  from them how to direct tha colls. The  impression stamped on the, brain cell  will guide the individual under similar circumstances again,; and-this goes  to constitute experience and memory.  It is easier to remember a lemon or  a horse than a- mathematical formula  or a poem. The reason' of this ia that.  whereas the former have impressions  stamped on several centres, as sight,  touch, smell,. taste, hearing, speaking  and writing; the, latter are stamped  merely on the speaking, hearing, seeing; and 'writing centres. Those oen-  tres are not nearly so retentive. In  repeating poetry it is the sound of tho  last "line which suggests tho next  line. Hence pooms with rhyme are easier to learn than those without.  Though poetry is revived in tho sight  nnd sound centres, it is nor. so well  'fixed there as  SIMPLE OBJECTS. ,  Thus a lemon is stamped twice in the)  optic centre���������once as a yellow oval  fruit and' once as tho ipxinted fruit. -  So there is an optic we id centre and  a pictorial or photographic centre. The  poem or formula is only stamped in  tho former.   '  Those who photograph know -well ���������  that a good impression , requires 'cor-  rect.exposuro. Under exposures aro poor  and do not last. It is tho same with  our brains;: Wo cannot learn without  drilling .the subject matter into our  brains��������� frequent repetition when  learning by rote, and careful fixod attention from tho special guidance and  energy of the prefrontal or foro brain,  which acta as the commanding officer.  Many people are not trained to use  their eyes. A quick observer notes in  a moment what would escape tho dullard altogether. It is important to  train one's self to observe. _ Accuracy  and speed come with practice. The  brain is like a big album of photographs and other sensory impressions.  It should bo stored with accurate impressions, especially of the good. It ia  especially wise in the training i of  children to give I hem impressions of  the good and tho true; tho false and  bad will be forced upon them soon enough.  Not only the memory, but the attention requires training ; in fact, one le  necessary to tho other. If wo sit before a preacher and hear every word  ho says, but cannot recall it a moment  afterward, it is because our prefrontal  brain has been at rest. - If we wish  to recall a subject the si imulus must  pass to tho prefrontal or registry office, whence tho stimulus is sent to  tho brain cells containing tho sensations to be recalled. Tho great problem  is to keep tho brain healthy and active.  find  in    the  blue book    a   list  of  the  two    constables    avoided    the   questions Li Hung Chang asked when  and kept to  the thick growth.   }le    paid   a     flying     visit     to     Cal-  Suddenly O'Kelly became aware of a gary.

Noth-  wrenched violently from his grasp, and  disappeared over, the embankment into the pit. The rifles belched forth  in his very face, and an Indian sprang  up on the embankment to get a better  shot at him. A bullet from O'Kelly'si  rifle went crashing through. the redskin's brain. The constable flattened  his body out, and hugged his mother  earth as though he loved her. A shot  from Almighty Voice tore a spur from  off (hia heel.  Tein feet away Cook was lying flat  and motionless behind the dead limb  of a fallen tree.

V  Fierce battles are waged between  the fire fiend and the constables sometimes. Day and: night, scorched and  seared and athirst, they have to battle  often to preserve the country from becoming one vast kiln. No more .exciting picture was ever drawn than the  sight of two policemen, with two wet  blankets knotted together and trailing the ground, galloping one on either side of aline of leaping hungry  flame.

I lie notation of  Sensory and Motor Nerves Which Arc  Constantly m lVoi-Ii.  Although there are many things  about the brain which scientists have  not yet'.fathomed, still great strides  have been made recently in knowledge  of what the cranium contains. The  cerebrum is the chief part of the brain,  and immediate source of all,our mental action. The gray matter of the  outer soirface is made up of layers ��������� of  nerve cells. These are tho thinking centres. Experiments on animals have  shown that each convolution has a special function1, and if; destroyed it cannot lxs replaced. Also it is. found that  the left:brain is more active than the  right. This knowledge has boon ; most  useful  in  relieving suffering.  Thus, if an epileptic commences a  fit by twitching the right, thumb or  hand, one would find the cause in its  nerve centre on the left side of the,  brain. We are now able to make a map  of the surface of the brain according  to the various functions. AH impressions received from tho outer. world  whether by sight, smell, hearing, taste  or touch, aro carried direct to the surface of the brain and recorded in the  brain cells of their respective areas,  while all movements are the result of  impulses sent down from the cells in  the  different motor areas.  Thero are five 1 arge sensory ares:  Firt't, sight, which is the largest, at  the back. Smell, taste and hearing  have their positions at the side of  head, in the temporal region and inner, surface. Tpuch resides at the top  of the brain, while the' largo motor  area occupies the bulk of the middle  brain.  THE MOTOR AREA,  is so arranged that the motor cells  of the lips are in front, then those  of the hand, arm, and so on, backward,  to the foot. The simplest brain action  is as follows:���������If a person touched anything; hot or sharp the painful sensation would be telegraphed to the sensory area. The sensory cell which received the message would wire on to  the motor cells to pull the hand away.  If the person was asleep, and therefore, the brain not acting, such a simple act might be matnaged' by the spinal cord or medulla. It ia called a reflex act. '  A person may be walking toward a  precipice, and the impression of dan  WITHOUT STRAIN.  . If the blood is not right the brain  cannot hi, for it is nourished by good  blood. The chief e-nomies of the brain  are worry, which disorganizes the machinery ; shock, which paralyzes the  brain. Worry or excitement pauses  irregular nerve action. .Wo call it oon-  fusiunot ideas or nervosity. The optio  brain centres throw up a series of depressing mental photographs, exaggerating existing trouble. This continues,  to depress the cells in the fore brain,  resulting in complete failuro to judge  aright or analyse correctly. Slight; annoyances are likely to grow into quarrels in this way, for by brooding over  them brain fatigue occurs. Then the  imagination sees exaggerated views  until; spite and hatred, and kindred  passions exhaust the fore brain, and  misguided actions result.. The stronger the quarrel grows the weaker the  finer perceptions become. This explains  the disease of the age���������worry and its  results.  Self-control is the key to right living and thinking. Ah over-indulgent  parent allows the animal instinct to  prevail over tho intellectual control,  to the injury of the child's mental de^  velopment.\ The higher the intellect  the more these instincts are under control. Euthanasia, or mental well being, is what all must strive for���������th������;  body in health and the mind at peace.  Unrest wears out the strongest brains.  Worry is poison to the brain ;,work develops   it. |  SECRET OF GOING UFSTAIRS.  '.Mont'People Walk lip. WroniTi Says a Woe-  tor nuil He TellH.llie Right- Wuy.  A physician., who declared that few  people knew hbw to walk upstairs pro-  pctriy, was asked to describee how it  should bo done. jHei.said: "Usually a  person will tread . on the ball of tho  foot in taking (C-ac/h stop. This is very  tiresome and wearing on t&ie muscles,  as it ��������� thtrows the en/tire suspended  weight of the ,body on tho muscles of  the legs and feet. You should in  walking or cliinibing stairs seek for the  most equal distriuution of the body's  weigh't possible.

Arms and armor, are treated  with acids which.eat away tho metal,  thus producing the same effects as the  ravages of time. Carved ivories aro  stained with oils to mako Ikern yellow,  ' and are subjected to heat to make  them crack. Fiecea of .furniture have  holes drilled to represent the worm  holes, and so on, until there will in  time be very little in the way of  curios, which are in themselves really  curious. Faris is ono of the strongholds of this class of forgers, while in  Hungary there is a, tactory where  presdeu china is imitated , in a fair  planner. There is, however, one safe  Way, and that' is* to buy through reputable dealers. Forgeries in all works  ft art very rarely got into the dealers'  fcanda. As a rule they aie sent to auction rooms.  Many amateurs have an idea that  they may pick up a priceless work of  Irt or a curio for a mere song. That  t the chance for the forgers.

Hero  tho  court   interfered.   >  SERENE NERVE.  The most curious feature in the case  of the miner recently imprisoned for  nearly 70 'hours in the Gaylord coal  mine at Plymouth, Penn., was his  peacefully falling asleep in his tomb  as soon as he realized that ho was  likely to be rescued. It would bo difficult to imagine a more serene nervous systean. There were plenty of  chances, too, that tho miners might  get   the   -poor   fellow out alive.  A MOURNING CEREMONY.  A lady in deep mourning some time  ago called upon the proprietor of a  Sydney, New South Wales, waxworks  show and asked to bo allowed every  Sunday morning to place a white shirt  on tho figure of her husband. Her  request was granted, and for close on  six months she never missed a Sunday.  Then the visits ceasod, and no more  was seen of the eccentric visitor until  ono day tho waxworks man was standing at his door, when she came along  in gay apparel and explained that, as  she had married again Hubby No. 2 objected to the'eccentric ceremony over  No. 1.

Silverton is agitating for a brass  bund���������a good idea.  The steamer Slocan will soon be  making its rounds on the lake again.  Ab yet it is not known where Phil.  Hickey's company will build their  concentrator.  Dr. Elliott, of Victoria, is likely to  locate in Silverton. That's one result  from an editor marrying.        r  Tho attendance at the school is picking up, but there are several youths in  town who shonld bo there, that have  ��������� not yet put in an appearaacc,  ' Mr. Barron   is   going  to   introduce  Indian club exercises   at   the school.  Usually   there   is but   one  club' in a  ���������   school house, and that is exercised   by  the teacher.  Coughs that stick to you,  that othe  remedies seem powerless to reliere ar  '. promptly cured by Dr. Wood's Norway  Pine Syrup.   Try it, and you'll bu con'  .   Yinced by being cured.  Those McGuigan cases that were to |  have been tried at New Denver, Wednesday, are adjourned until next week,  when they will be tried in this' city.  Absence of witnesses was the cause of  the postponement.  Reports say that the wheat crop was  hurt by frost in several parts of Manitoba and the Territories. As yet we  have heard of no damage from frost in  these parts,   hut cannot  tell  how the  - wheat   and   wild oats may   come out  , later on.  Bennett's bear slirjped his collar and  made a break for liberty, Wednesday  night: but, probably having either an  architectural or sanctimonious turn of  mind he spent the night inspecting j  the now Presbyterian church, where  he was captured under the building  next day.  In our paragraph last week dealing  with the McGuigan row, wo made a  mistake in saying the dance was held  at tno K. & S. hotel. It was held at the  McGuigan House, and after that the  disturbance took place at the K. & S.,  as stated, the participants going over  to,the latter place.  We suppose to build up the place  bListing must be done right and left  - for a long time yet, but every precau-  'tion ought to bo taken for the safety of  the people. The blasting now being  done on the Ruth Hume is really perilous, and iu several instances serious  injury to people has been narrowly  averted. Are all the precautions taken  thai, can be taken ? This is a very important matter.  New Denver is to have electric lijrht  again after Sept. 1st.  The Ledge says D. W. King is going  blossom into poetry again.  Work on the wagon road between  here and New Denver has been discontinued for the want of funds.  There are rumors and rumors as to  the opening of the Sandon and other  Slocan mines, but none of them can be  hunted down to facts.  Miss Bessie Nason, Clover Hill, N.S.,  says : "I gladly recommend Laxa-Liver  Pills, as they cured me completely of  constipation before I had finished tho  third box."  R. McLean, an old-time Sandonite,  who spent the summer at Windermere,  likes the face of the country well, but  says it has not the mineral wealth this  district possesses.  Simeon Ricknrd, a miner, who had  been an inmate of the hospital oil' and  on for several weeks, succumbed to his  ailment on Thursday last, and was  buried on Friday afternoon by the Miners' Union in the Sandon cemetery.  The deceased was but 27 years of age,  and had been working in the neighborhood for some time.  Miss Crawford and Miss Rawlings  entertained a number of thoir friends  on Friday evening week at the residence of Aid. Crawford. Progressive  whist was the order of amusement, in  which 1st prizes were won by Miss  Hammond and Mr. Burchill, while  Miss Chisholm and Dr. Gomm each secured a booby trophy,  Tho city council have sold our $15,-  000 6 per cent, debentures to Rivers-  Wilson Smith, of Montreal, at 90 cents.  It appears that Mr. Wilson has a good  bargain, as this was the first issue of  the place. The council with the $13,-  500 can pay off the flume debts, and it  would be well, as suggested some time  ago, that every item should be carefully investigated before the money is  paid over.  Established in 1892.  Meat extract resembles Beef Tea made at  home in the fact that it contains no nourishment at all. Hard doctrine this for the  ladies who think that nothing can equal  their 'own make.    How is  H. PYERS &��������� CO.  Jobbers and Retailers in  Nourishing then ? Because it is not a meat  extract only; it contains in addition the  nourishing qualities of pure lean ox beef  highly concentrated and pulverized. Bovril  is, therefore, superior to meat extracts or  beef tea.  essnes&  PERSONAL   MENTION.  tour  this  W. F. Anderson, C. P. R. official of  Nelson, was in the city this week.   "  Col. Prior, of Vancouver, in a  of the country, was in Sandon  week.  C. K. Green, of Saginaw, Mich., who  is largely interested in Slocan properties, with kis wife, were in town this  week.  Oscar White returned this'week from  the Lardo, and with Mrs. White and  children left by K. & S. on Thursday  for a short visit in Nelson.  m  '<���������     British Columbia, and,   tve may say  ,the Slocan  for that matter, paid   $37,-  ��������� -'  000 into the Dominion   treasury last  , year, in the shape of duties on "refined  ' lead," that is on lead returning Irom  the American refiners that this district  sendh across   the lines   to  be roiincd.  Why is there not some   united  ellbrt  made to abolish this blood money ?   It  18  15 per cent on $1,SOO,000 worth of  !��������� lead sent out to be refined.  "Our correspondent of  last week as-  ri suires us that in his reference to Tara's  jj Hall he meant nothing disrespectful,  ii He,only meant   the ceiling   was low,  I and that tho building was located on a  I low level.    As   The Review   building  I adjoins.it, the  reference to the nature  '" 01' the ground applies  to one building  as well as the other.    Different language might, of course, have been used,  but people do not always weigh their  words belore using them.   For the information of some who are curious, we  i fi$y, say   thit City Clerk Sewell   was  t0i the writer of the communication  ������nd we believe had nothing whatever  'hyo do with it.  We have a long  letter   from   Mrs.  Sawkins, who was arrested here some  ' ��������� time   ago   for   selling   cosmetics   in  -.Kaslo.   While she puts her  position  'iully and very clearly the general public have no special interest in the dc-  " -tails.   She says she has advice  irom  one of the best lawyers on the continent, which supports the contention of  1 Trie Review, that an arrest for the in-  lraction of a municipal by-law cannot  be made outside the municipality in  . which that   by-law  was passed.   She  fays further, which is very true, tho  y-law in question was passed to pro-  . ot the retail trade and she was only  italiing orders to sell wholesale. She  has placed the matter in the hands ol  McAnn & McKay, Kaslo, who are  pushing the case. The result will be  of interest to the public.  Mr. Alexander can do a great deal  towards securing the permanent good  ' .-vail ol the citizens regardless of section  jmd class by selling 10 the Minnesota  gilver Co.  the  land   thoy require lor  their'   concentrator     on     reasonable  ' terms. -Of course, no one has any right  to dictate in the matter, and tho goodwill ot  a community may not  be of  great value to a mining company, but  it is always  worth considering.   Very  naturally ail who have any interest in  ,the place would like to see it go ahead,  and   the   building     of   concentrators  would oe   one step  on the rounds  of  substantial progress.    When the Ruth  Co. asked lor exemption from taxation  for tneir concentrator tuo people cheerfully gave it,  and on  the ground that  Dne guun turn  deserves   another, Mr.  Alexander ought now to be liberal witn  ;he lu.iinesota people. I  The Hammond family, this city, received the sad intelligence of the  death of Harry, the eldest of the family, which took place at Tacorna on  Tuesday. The deceased was in business there, and was undergoing opera-  operations for some ailment when he  died. He was well-known ' > many in  the city. (J.
