While .working in  the tunnel a cave-in took place, killing  him almost, instantly. lie was said to  be a steady, respectable man.   '  The Nelson Tribune has ^the Minnesota Silver Co." operating the Alamo  mine. Tin's probably has resulted from  a confusion of names. That'conip;.iiy  is operating the Ivanhoe and not the  Idaho or the -Alamo. G. W. Hughes  looks after the two latter.  The Methodists held a very pleasant  social in the church on Thursday evening. Tea, music and recitations constituted the programme. The most satisfactory feature of it was that all were  ' -pleased, with the entertaining lines  of the evening.  A couple of chaps personated in the.  late Slocan municipal elections and trot  two month's apiece for it. Served them  right. Any man can vote in a Britjoh  CcTluin.hia municipal election by paying  a $5 business tax, and that ought to be  cheap enough for any one.  On Wednesday an accident, occurred  to a. miner at the Whitewater mine,  whose name we are unable (o learn. He  was by some means knocked several feet  down a shaft and badly bruised. Dr.  Hartin, of. Kaslo, came up to attend  him.  C. E.Fielding, one of the locators of  the famous Arlington mine at Slocan,  has filed in Spokane his answer in the  suit brought bv Frank Watson against  him and asks for $32,000. Watson had  started suit against Fielding for if0,700,  claimed to be due for services rendered.  Fielding's answer makes some serious  charges against plaintifTTVarson, claiming that through misrepresentations he  defrauded Fielding out of stock in the  Arlington mines to the value of .$32,000.  Mr. and Mr.  T.  friends in Nelson.  Sharp   are   visitini  Lead and copper are going up a little  in the London matket. ���������  Stock-taking is all the rage now.  There is plenty of leisure to do it in.  I.;. Pratt, manager of the Last Chance,  is on a short business trip to   Spokane.  The Rev. "Father Pat" who used to  be stationed at Rosslaud, died in Montreal on Sunday last.  W. D. Wrighter, of Spokane, and H.  Coleman, of Pittsburg, both interested  in the American Buy, were up to the  property last week, and found things  quite satisfactory.  There will be a hockey match Saturday  veiling betw.ien the .Sandon Juniors  and Kaslo clubs at Kaslo. A>������spi?chil  rate has been secured on thc K. ec S.  good to go Saturday, February 1st,  returning good until Monday, at rate of  single fare for 10 hockey players, and  fare of $2.75 round trip for the- public.  Section 22 of the School ,Act provides  that in.city, school districts the qualifications for voters are the same as those  fwrmayor, and clause 28 says no one can  be elected a trustee who is not ah elector. As one of the newly appointed  trustees is not an elector for mayor lie  cannot' be a ��������� trustee, even if properly  elected. It is alsoapointof law whether  or not a man can hold the dual office of  trustee and alderman. Of course, the  Board of Education in Victoria must  decide these points.  Aid. Brown knows there was a mistake in not having school trustees mentioned in the alderrnanic proclamation,  and-blames Mr. Clifle, as sec, treas. of  the board last year, for not having called the- attention of the council to the  law on the subject. It was the duty of  City Clerk Lyons to have done that, as  Mr. Clitic is not paid for posting either  the clerk or the council. This paper  has frequently called the Attention of  the eouncilto such things in the past  and'bus never been thanked for it.  Coming* to a Head.  Mines and Mining.  The Neepawa is now going to ship  regularly.  A meeting of the shareholders of the  Reco mine will bo held this month.  The Molly Gibson is now shipping 12  tons of ore daily, and will 'shortly increase the tonnage.  They claim to have found placer gold  at Sunias, and there is a rush to that  locality.  Geo. W. Hughes is shipping steadily  from the Sunset. He meets with no  phenominal finds, but a good streak of  high grade ore.  The Payne has the lead in No. S or its  lowest tunnel, but without any particu-  Jar ore body so far. Il has, however,an  excellent showing in No. Ii tunnel.  The Silversmith, one of the Slocan  Star group, is exceeding itself by leaps  and bounds. Seventy-three sacks of  ore were taken out in one day the first  of the week. There are now in the face  of the tunnel seven feet of ore, most of  which.is clean and of very high grade.  Sacking and stoping are going on steadily and an orehouse will be erected at  once. Byron White is not yet fully  aware of the magnitude of this find,  and umnv surmise that when he learns  Matters are coming to a head so far as  mining in this country is concerned.  It looks now as if. we had seen the worst  of things and that another year will not  have elapsed before silver lead mining  in B. C. is on a footing to make something for the owners, to give employment to miners and place commercial  business on a iuucbr- be'ttirrt. footing.  Rere is from the Spplcesniau-RoviawJ:  Nelson, Jan. 25��������� li. LV Sander.1: of  Spokane, who is interested in thp, Sullivan Group Mining co 'if'a'rvy, i^a guest  at the Hume. He lus jifst returned  from a visit to the property, in East  Kootenay. Air. Sanders says thai his  com pay intends on Lhe completion of its  smelter and lead refinery aL Marysviile,  in East Kootenay, lo add a- lead corroding works for the purpose of manufacturing white lead.  "What is the use," said Mr. Sanders,  "of selling our lead for 1.2 cents per  pound, when we can take ; tlie bullion  and refine it into pig lead, take the pig  lead arid corrode it into white lead and  get 5 cents per pound for it! We have  made some inquiries into the question  and have found one considerable about  the business,of white lead manufacturing. Formerly it took from three to six  weeks to corrode lead, but under a new  process the corroding can be accomplished in" two or three days.  . "The plant required for the new process, as I understand it, does not cost  nearly as much as one for the old process. AVe behave, that we will be the  pio,vi-?er white lead manufacturers.-in  Canada. .'":���������'���������','  "So.far as the smelter and lead refinery are concerned, we are rushing construction and the order* to Llie builders  are to push matters, no matter what the  exdense may be, to the end that the  smelter and lead refinery may lie completed by June 1. The frames of the  smelter buildings are up. The lire  brick is on thegroniid and so is most of  the material for the furnaces. We have  our powerheuse finished and the generators and water wheels should soon  come to hand. The plant will have a  capacity ofSOO horse power and will he  used to "run the crushers and other ma.  chinerv in our smelter. The C. P. R-  trains run to and from Kimherly pass  through Marysviile and a spur has been  conptruc'jed to our smelter site.  This is followed up as follows from  the Montreal Star:     ;  Montreal, Jan. 24,���������It is understood  the Canadian Paint company is considering the proposal to establish a factory for the manufacture of white and  red"load and litharge from lead mined  in British Columbia. The decision of  the Canadian Pacific railway to establish a lead refinery has brought the matter to a head. Thousands of ions of lead  are now imported, chiefly from Germany, some of it manufactured from  load ore actually mined in Briti-h Columbia, ft is understood now that  flirt establishment of a factory merely  depends upon the government extending sufficient protection lo -the promoters. The cost of machinery, etc., is  very high.  What wonM be best for this country  all around immediately is reciprocity  with the United States as then we  would get there what, the American  mines get from the trust, about four  cents for lead in bullion at present. If  we cannot get that let us have reciprocity in tariff and exclude importations  of lead in every form from Canada,  manufacture to meet   all requirements  lead or manufactured, as markets offer,--  for our surplus.   But one of these alternatives is the only salvation for silver-  lead mining in Canada, and the soonerc  the people compel the   Ottawa  government   Lotake action   the better for the"  whole of Canada-.   Jt may compel Canadians to pay a little more, for  a time,  for their requirements; hut it will   give  employment to many now out of it, and  build up in tins province   a  large  consuming population for the products  of  the eastern provinces. ,  Curling*.  If the prevailing cold weather continues, as yet there lias been no oneeudow-  ed with prophetical powers enough to  fomist to the contrary) the indications  are that the Bonspiel to be held here on  this month will terminate successfully. The affair will continue for five  successive days commencing on Friday  the 17t.h inst. and ending the following  Tuesday inclusive. In Lhe matter of  representaLion the'speil will be well  patronized from outside points as Nelson, Rossland, Reveistoke have so far  signified their intention of sending  rinks, but the number at the present  juncture has not been determined upon.  As well as the towns named it is expected that the Boundary and other points  will swcllthe n limber. We annex a  summary ofthe trophies so far arranged-  to be played for, viz:  Geo. Tuckett & Co. of Hamilton, will  this year present, four medals to the  winner of then* handsome cup.  -TheNew York. Life. Insurance Co.,  donators of the Grand Challenge cup,  have through.their Winnipeg manager,  J. G. Morgan, signified their intention  of giving lour gold medals with their  cup.

Roderick Robertson, of Nelson, in New York that day.  The vram reports say he wan killed in  the Murray Hill hotel by flying debris  from n dynamite' explosion. They are  excavating in that city near that hotel  for a tunnel, nnd by some means astore  of dynamite exploded mid did the work.  S'-ime 75 people in that hotel were either  killed or hurt, and some hundreds were  hurt or killed in the city altogether.

We    venture   to      say  that in  our  town of 3,000 inhabitants few  business men arc better known than Mr.  M. A. Gauthier, the young* and hustling     butcher      of     Main   street.

Over the shoulders are black  velvet, straps, covered with embroidery in pink and white and hold by  fancy ornaments All soft pliable  materials are, however, appropriate  and the waist can be raised either by  being made high, with yoke and long  sleeves or low with elbow sleeves,  having thc' shoulders cut away or  not, as shown in small'drawings,.

When  yoke and sleeves are desired they  can be made of the same or contrasting material either as a separate guimpo with the lining for a  foundation as part of the waist.

Y  SNAIL RACES.  Some Florcntlan experts in sua.il-  ology. finding Lime hang heavy on  1 heir hands, conceived Lhe idea of accurately calculating Lhe travelling  speed of snails, and, with this end in  view, it, was decided Lo make a scries of more or Jess elaborate experiments. Half-a-dozen of thc molluscs  were permitted to crawl between two  points 10 feet apart. Exact time  was kept from the start to the finish,  :ind thus the average pace was ascertained. The experimenters reduced their figures into tables of feet,  and thus found that it would take a  snail exactly fourteen days to travel  a; mile.

The  drinks most in use in-the seventeenth centuries were sack, caiuvy,  claret,   sherry and  others,   to  which      it  was customary to add honey,    sugar,  giner, ���������   cinnamon     and  other ingredients ; also a piece of toast,  which  floated on top of the liquor and was  1 supposed     to give it     an additional  j flavor.   Later     on, in the eighteenth  .century,     Dr. Johnson relates :     "A  j certain -beau,.., being at Bathy pledged  J a noted   beauty in  a glass  of  water  taken  from her  bath,   whereupon an-  , other roysterer cried  out he     would  I have nothing  to  do  with  the  liquor,  but  would have the toast���������that     is,  , the lady     herself."   'From  this inei*  dent, it is said, arose the habit     of '  giving a lady's name to preface     or  flavor the drinking of wine.     Hence  la popular     lady whose health     was  often drunk became "a toast"  Later the  word  mean any     sentiment  a drink. ���������  great toast.  conic to  prefaces  '���������t. - ���������*' ���������  or **a  has  which  -IN  TAKE NOTICE.

THE MOST NUTRITIOUS.  ������=  GRATEFUL-COMFORTING.  BREAKFAST-SUPPER.  BRITAIN'S DRINK BILL.  There are in the Bible 3,566,480  letters. Britain's drink bill last  year amounted to ������160,891,718,  This would allow Britons to place on  each letter in the Bible ������45 2s. 2������d.,  and leave over, ������2,000 to sfiarei  A Queer utiinc imputation.  A joint deputation from the  churches and the amateur sporting  associations is indeed, as a contemporary says, something in the nature  of a curiosity. Such a combination  recently waited upon the Chief Secretary of Victoria, Australia, to protest, against the invasion of cricket  and football matches in Melbourne  ��������� by professional  bookmakers. The  clerical section wanted betting made  a penal offence by act of Parliament;  the sporting section'would be content with powers to evict the bookmakers as "undesirable persons."  The Minister considered the latter  a reasonable proposal and, promised  to embody it in a bill.,  Honey as a I'������rfect Food.  Few^ people know that honey possesses a great value as food on account of its ease of digestion and ia  especially desirable for those with  .weakened digestive powers. The nectar of flowers is almost entirely enno  sugar. The secretions added by the  bees change this ' to grape sugar,  and so prepare it that it is almost  ready for assimilation without, any  effort on the part of the stomach.  The unpleasant symptoms from  which some suffer-after eating honey  may often be removed by drinking a  little milk.

Thc old  Perthshire Regiment, to which he  was attached at thc time, captured  some guns from thc enemy, but was  about to leave them behind for  want of horses to drag them away.  OJpherts was too keen a gunner to  consent to the abandonment of prizes  of that sort, so he galloped back,  under a perfect hail of lead, and  brought up the necessary horses. No  one thought he would get through  alive ; but he accomplished his object although he brought back several bullets as well as the horses,  and it was some time before he was  fit to take the field again.  1 The, King of Portugal, although  entirely against his doctor's advice,  artist, her special *s & somewhat great meat eater, and  from' animal life, thinks no form of cooking comes up  to that of tho English.

Thc real dangers of bronchitis arc sometimes overlooked. It is too serious a disease to triflo'. with, and  for that reason everybody should-be   familiar with the symptoms  Children arc most liable to contract bronchitis, and, if neglected, it becomes chronic, and returns year after year, until it wears tho patient out or develops into some deadly Jung disease.  The approach of bronchitis is marked by chills and fever, nasal or throat catarrh, quick pulse, loss of appetite and feelings of fatigue and languor.  Bronchitis is also known by pain in the upper part of thc chest, which, is aggravated, by deep breathing  or coughing, until it seems to burn  and tear the delicate linings of the bronchial tubes.  The cough is dry and harsh, and is accompanied by expectoration of a. frothy nature, wh'ich gradually increases; is very stringy and tenacious and is frequently streaked with blood.  There is pain, not unlike rheumatism, in limbs, joints and body, constipation and extreme depression and  weakness. In some people, the exhaustion amounts almost to nervous collapse, delirium follows, and in  young  children   convulsions  may   follow.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, is, we believe, the most effective treatment for bronchitis  that money will'buy.    This fact has   been proven time and time again in  many thousands of cases.  It is the most elTective remedy for bronchitis, because it is far-reaching in its effects on the whole system,  not merely relieving tho cough, but actually and thoroughly curing the disease. It loosens the cough, frees  thc chest of lightness and pain, aids  expectoration and  permanently cures.  There are other preparations of turrjontine and linseed put up in imitation of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine.

Tiie Mining Review.  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY" 1, 1902.  .        _  A RIP VAN WINKLE.  It may not be generally known Sandon  has a veritable Rip Van Winkle who  has just emerged from his hybernation ;  but'it has all the same. Last week the  Bluestreak, as a masterly journalistic  scoop, declared in a doublecoluinn,double leaded article surrounded by a border, on the first page, that Johnstone, of.  the Everett smelter had been here a few  days before, made an unheard of cut in  Bmelter rates, a private contract with  the Last Chance and the American Boy  , for smelting and tied the country  "quickerin you could say Jack Robin-  eon." Not satisfied with monopolising  this scoop, he wired it to his kidneyed  brother, of the Nelson. Tribune, to  give  ��������� that print also ascoop over all contemporaries, The wire appeared, but Monday's issue contained this piece of editor-  . ial sackcloth and ashes:  The Sandon dispatch whicli appeared  in'the Tribune on Saturday was ��������� rather  misleading in that it admitted of the  construction that the Everett smelter  bad made a break, iu the matter of  treatment rates, which was notcontem-  ' plated bv the smelters at Nelson and  Trail.   So far from this being   the   case  , the rates quoted are those which were  decided upon some weeks ago by- the  three smelting concerns purchasing Slocan lead ores. There have been rumors  in the press of the Slocan of independent action on the part of the Everett  smelter, but no evidence of it ���������appears  in the new rate,   which it   is   credited  ��������� with .having quoted to the AniericahBoy  ���������and Last Chance mines, as it is -common to Nelson aiid Trail, as well .a*  the Everett smelter, and one which  was first made public weeks ago was  thought might possibly be somewhat  further reduced by all three concerns.  Everything that is truth ia this celebrated scoop appeared in an editorial  in this paper on the 4th of last month.  When Bluestrek wakes up from his  slumber, he becomes "a hell of a fellow"  and wants to advise the slumbering  ���������world of his unapproached   enterprise  . and intelligence.  HOPEFUL  VIEW  The hopeful view consumptives take of their own cases is  strongly in their favor. Each  year is showing a larger percentage of cures.  ,; One of the best reasons' for  good hope is the record of  Scott's Emulsion as a medicine  for consumptives. So long as  the system is strong enough to  use medicine of any kind it can  use Scott's Emulsion.  The reason for its helpfulness in this disease is because  of its long tolerance by the  patient; one does not tire of  it as. quickly as other medi-  ':ines and that, is where the  Teat benefit comes.  in goods 'Inn. his , .oper customers buy  outside and - u on all along the line.  Manitoba last year raised 85,000,000  bushels of wheat that netted thefarmers  $45,000,000. The province has 250,000  people, 175,000 of whom were engaged  in raising that crop, or $257 per capita.  British Columbia with its 177^000peopie  mined $20,000,000' worth of minerals.  All told there were les6 than 15,000 people engaged in that production 'or say  $1,330 per capita.  NOTICE.

ARCHIE FULMORK.  Dated this loth day of January, 1902.    <  School Matters.  "Justice" under civilizasion is getting  ���������to be simply the worst of rottenness to  the core. The other day the County-  Treasurer of Essex, Ontario, was found  to*be a defaulter to the extent of .$1,000.,  When confronted with it he said his  salary was but $1,450 a year, he had to  pay $500 to an assistant, which left him  but $950, insufficient to live on. He  was compelled to fake countymoney to  live on, but if given a chance he would  make up the deficiency. He was given'  the chance, and now walks around a respectable and honorable citizen. A  poor man with a family in Sandon has  not enough work to keep his family in  the necessaries of life. lie take a ham  from a grocery, he is hauled up for it,  he pleads inability to keep his family  from starving, but if triven time he will  pay for the ham. His plea is no good,  he is sentenced to a term in gaol. If  Canada had justice, the man who had  $050 a year and could not live on it  would have been declared the fehief, and  the Sandon man would have been given  a chance to protect his small children  from starvation.  Oneof the great drawbacks toSandon  is the great tendency of the citizens to  send'out of qo'wn fer many of theartieles  they lequire alleging they cannot   pro  cure them in the city, when in fact the  buying outside1 is the main reason why  many things that mighthckepthereare  not kept, JNo business maii is disposed  to carry goods he cannot sell, and often  the reason yuods not kept as unsaleable  is because they are bought outpide. If  the business people would only get into  their legitimate lines and ca>ry nothing  else, and the public would couie to the  conclusion it was most honorable to deal  with houses in the locality in which  they made their own livings, nearly  everything" tlie people could ask for  would be kept here.

It takes three  hour's to digest a fresh egg  soft boiled; three hours to digest a boiled  apple dumpling; three hours to digest  fresh roast beef.

But  ���������when the brain is active, the stomach is  inactive for lack of necessary blood. The  natural consequence is- indigestion, and  indigestion opens the door to many diseases.  Indigestion is cured by the use of Dr.  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,  which cures diseases of the stomach and  other organs of digestion and nutrition,  and enables the perfect digestion and  assimilation of food.  ������It is with heartfelt gratitude that I send this  testimonial which I wish you to publish with  my name and address," writes Mr. Willis Seaman, of Washlngtonville, Orange Co., N.

My wife  finally persuaded me to try Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery and ' Pleasant Pellets.' I  took six bottles of the ' Golden Medical Discovery' and two vials of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.' I then felt so well that I stopped taking  medicine.

Address Dr. R. V, Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.  Last week we quoted the following  section of the new school law, showing  bow aud when trustees should be  elected:  "The nomination and election ofthe  board of trustees SHALLUE HELD AT  THE SAME TIME, and by the same  returning officer or officers, when possible, and conducted in the same manner as the municipal nomination and  election for mayor would be conducted, &c."  In the face of this our city clerk in  the proclamation nominating: mayor  and aldermen, overlooked this law altogether, and when he and the new council saw that all the surrounding city  councils had elected their trustees,  awakened to the mistake and made  the.matter right (?) by nominating and  electing a new school noard on the 27lh,  giving just livd clear days notice. They  now make a scapegoat of the words  "when possible," and say it was not  possible to have held the two elections  at the same time. The only impossibility about it is that of the cleric to  fully understand the meaning of English law and the English language, lhe  words "when possible" refer to the selection of the same returning officer,  and not to the same days for. nomination and election, as they may find out  later on..  What they should have done when  they found their mistake, and not taken  the law into their own hands, was to  have asked the government for instructions. The gentlemen selected were  Messrs. Geo. Houstoii.E. R. Athertdn  and Thos. Brown, all respected citizens  and as fit for the positions as any other  three men available. What we object  to is their illegal election, and the fact  that not one of the number has children going to' school. They are not,  therefore, as likely to take the sarn.e interest in educational matters as men  with pupils attending school. '  The late, and for -that'matter the present school board, who legally hold  office untiltheir successors are appointed, laBt December; consulted :all. the  parents in town with school children,  and they found them.nearly unanimous  in favor of continuing the second  teacher, and the second was engaged in  consequence. The first act of the illegal  board, however, is to dismiss the assistant teacher on the ground: of economy.  Our city council can- pay their clerk  from $15 to $25 a month more than the  surrounding cities pay for the work he  does, as we showed last fall by correspondence from outside cities; lhey ran  keep a city team in the stable eating  their heads oil*doing nothing; they can  pay for a bogivs-prodaniation every two  or three months through lack of qualifications of the clerk; they can pay  heavy solicitor's bills educating this  clerk on matters he. ought himself to  understand before,.takingsuch an office;  they can unneceHPsirily pay Dr. Gomm'a  smallpox bills, but thevcannotemploy a  second teacher, but forco parents and  children out of town, as their action  will curtainly do, to get a school education elsewhere.  It is quite true our school population  at the immediate present is not large;  but it has been over 60 since the fire,  and may be much more than that at  any time after the mines resume ship-  ing provided we have facilities for them.  Even with present attendance the  school is graded, embracing everything  from the alphabet to advanced mathematics, and no one teacher can do all  justice. The school has to be wrecked  by the council that thev may have the  more money to spend in fancies.  Wanted���������A  Husband.

In a recently published volume of  reminiscences is included the following anecdote of 1H\ Johnson. . The  story was related to Li is. Bowdler  by Mrs. William Deane (formerly  Miss Johnson), the niece of Sir Joshua Reynolds:  During one of my visits to my uncle  when   I   was  young1  and  shy/'"he  requested mo  to  sit at  the head  of  his tabic,     on a day  when ha      expected  a largt party;   amongst     the  guests were Cumberland, Garrick ancl  Dr.   Johnson.      I   trembled  at      the  name    of  the   latter,   and' in   consequence of  his  presence begged     that  mine might  be dispensed  with.     My  uncle laughed   at  my  folly,      would  not attend  to my entreaties,        and  assured  nic  if  1  would  provide        a  good'   dinner     that nothing      more  would be required of me by his   old  friend,      who  probably  would       not  trouble his head  about me in      any  other capacity.      1  did  my  best    as  to'the dinner,  and took my place at  the head     of the  not to offend  by  table, determining  my  words,  by  of not speaking at  all.   (j Thc  dint  conversation, by some unlucky chance,  turned upon music, to which Dr.  Johnson was totally insensible.  Whereupon,, he indulged his ' c'o-  quence at thc expense of his sense  in a violent philippicvngainst the  art itself, concluding by his opinion,  most positively delivered, that no  man of talent, or who was ia any  degree capable of better things, ever  had, ever could, or ever would de?  vote any portion of his time and  attention to so idle and frivolous .a',  purpose. I happened.to  be       ex  ceedingly fond  of music,  which   conquered     my fear of thc sage,  prompted  mc to say  to my  neighbor,   "I      wonder     what  Johnson thinks ot King David?1  1: "TRIAL BY BATTLE."    '  Case That Led to Change in English Jurisprudence.  The Dymoke1 claim in England to  (he king's championship rem.nds one  of the antiquity of the ollice, which  was established by the conqueror  after the ��������� battle of Hastings, when  thc dignity was conferred on Robert  de Ma nil ion, Lord of Fontenay. But  the championship is closely interwoven with the trial by combat.  How many Britons are aware that  trial by combat formed an essential  part of British, jurisprudence until  the beginning of the reign of George  IVY, or how it ended ? At that  time, there, being a charge of murder against a certain Abraham  Thornton, the gentleman was advised by his counsel to claim his right  of "trial by" battle." Accordingly,  whon brought before the court of  king's bench he Hung down his  gage. ,  ,  A solemn argument , was afterward held on the "case, when the  judges were unanimous that he was  entitled to . wage his battle. The  nearest male relative of lhe deceased, a lad of 1(5, being manifestly  unable to meet Thornton in combat,  declined any further proceedings. Tlie  public feeling was so much outraged  that the attorney general of thc day  immediately introduced a bill fer  abolishing thc right of appeal in all  criminal cases,  ever, did not  tion.  a   bill ,-which,  pass without  how-  opposi-  I)EBTOKS  IN   SI AM.  when  three  and  next  Dr.  ".

THE FARMER DIDN'T BITE.  A  Yankee farmer was smoking   his _  after-dinner      pipe  at     his   barnyard |  gate the cither day when a way la rer, j  who didn't diner in looks from     the  ordinary     tramp,     came'   along and  passed     the"   time of day, and     inquired :���������  "Am I speaking to Mr. Blank ?"  "Yes, my name is Blank," was thc  reply.  "And is this ycur farm ?"  "Yes,  sir."  "1-ic buried liesos of money."  "Yes."  "Not half of which has ever been  found."  "No."  "Has it, ever occurred to you that  some of this plui.djr m.ght have been  buried  right here on your farm '?"  "No, it never has," replied tho  farmer.  "wSupposc," whispered the wayfarer, as he dropped his voice and  looked round--"suppose I could point  out the exact spot on your farm  where Captain Kicid buried 5100,000  in gold ?"  "Waal ?" calmly queried the  mcr.  "Wouici you be willing, to set  out a square meal and give mc  old coat and a pair of shoes ?"  "No���������couldn't   do  it."  "What   !    Not     in  8100,000 'in gold '}"  "No,"  "You don't want to know where a  fortune lies buried within forty rods  of where we are stanciinc* ?"  "No���������don't care to know the spot."  "Sec here, my friend," said the  wayfarer, "what kind of a man aro  you  ?"  "Jest a farmer," was the rcplv.

It is shown by official returns to  Parliament that in the English  chancery there is about ������5(J,000,000,  or say, $2SO,000;000, of which all  but about "$6,000,000 is-kept subject to the orders of the court in  cases now before it. This sum of  $6,000,000, known officially as  "dormant funds in chancery," is lho  only amount in chancery for which  owners are not absolutely vibibie,  and for a large part of these dormant funds owners are pretty certainly known.  Thc statement ought to have some  effect on the well established .business of finding "heirs" for vast estates. Dozens of astute persons,,  disinclined for ordinary labor, have  made comfortable livings out of credulous people who have contributed  to funds to secure these estates, 10  which they believed themselves entitled as heirs. The claim agents  have not restricted their operations  to any one country���������Canadi., the  United States, the Continent of  Europe, the British colonics, have  provided a living for them.

An English University professor,  during his summer holiday, has, says  London Tit-Bits, been traveling  a'out England asking every tramp  that he met why ho didn't work. He  interviewed 2,000 vagrants, and,  classing them according to the various reasons they gave for not earning their daily bread in an orthodox  manner, we get the following: 653  said they were willing to work, but  could not obtain any; 445 could not  give any reason that would hold water; 801. thought that no one ought  lo have to work, and if some people  were foolish enough to do so ��������� well,  they intended living on those said  people; ���������'107 were on their way to ���������  procure work at distant towns, having in their possession letters promising them employment at thc said  towns, and the remaining 304 were  waiting for rclaCives to die and leave  them their money.
