Loyering, of Winnipeg, paid a  visit to his brother here this week.  The great Pittsburg strike is being  taken to the courts under au injunction.  Nathan Haas, a mining engineer of  Nelson, was a visitor in the city on  Tuesday.  Skales, the colored chappie, has gone  to Nelson gaol for two months for striking an Italian.- ���������  The past ten days have seen more  strangers and visitors in town than were  here the previous month.'  Mrs. Radcliffe is breaking up houee-  keeping in the Wilson-house, and is  going to Toronto for a trip.'-'  The Last Chance, the Reco, the Good-  enough, the Payne and some other properties ai-H increasing their forces  gradually.  The Rev. Mr. Ferguson is oh" on his  holidays; and his pulpit will be filled  morning and evening by the Rev. Mr.  McKee, ofSlocan. -  There is a strike of labor in Toronto  for the purpose of "putting, down combines." This is a case of a pot fighting  a kettle because it is black.  The C. P. R. freight shed at Three  Forks and a car'of merchandise were  destroyed by fire on Tuesday last. The  blaze originated in a sealed box car.  G. McLeod, a contractor at.the Mountain Con, was fined $10 and costs by the  Beak on Wednesday for striking "Josh"  : Peters, cook, at that mine.   This is no  josh.       ' '��������� '    ..'   .-.',;  The mine owners held a meeting in  Nelson this week, and we understand  they had- considerable smelter talk.  Matters will never be right with: them  until they get control, of one or more  smelters. ' '        , ���������  J. A. Whittier and wife are home  from a long visit to the western States.  It is the intention of Mr. VVhittiei and  Mr. Harris to push woik extensivelv  this summer on the Reco and Good-'  enough properties.  It is understood John Daly, late bookkeeper of the Payne, will take a similar  position at the Rambler-Cariboo mine.  John .'has' a host -of friends'and but  few enemies, which is more than any  newspaper man can say.  1 ,.. Tt is rumored that R. F. Green is to  become   Minister of Mines, and J. D.  "Prentice is, to be made Minister of  Finance. At this the Nelson Tribune  says Prentice is as lit for the job as a  goat is for, Premier. There will be wigs  on the pavement if. Houston is overlooked in a government shuffle.  Was it Lowery's ? There has been so  much talk in the Bluestreak about cows  and barrels, that we wonder if it was  Lowery's red bovine that came racing  up street from the west on Thursdavj  bellowing'her disappointmentat finding  the barrels empty. Probably McAdams  could enlighten us in the matter.  It is understood Mr. J. S. Gusty, who  has been in charge of P. Burns & Co's.  establishment here for some time, is to  be promoted to a more lucrative appointment at some point on the Crow's  Nest line, and that a young man from  Nelson is^to take his place. Mr. Gusty  is a popular young man and will no  doubt succeed wherever he goes as he  alwavs attends to business.  Lorenzo Alexander and wife are visiting in Kaslo.  The C.P.R. is from one to three hours  late coming in these times. ;���������  The Grand Forks sawmill has been  destroyed by lire, with a.loss of .$40,000.  Sandon's hot wave-was broken yesterday by a heavy shower of rain and hail.  Tlie'C. P. R. will sell 60"da'y'tickets"t6  Buffalo on Aug. Gth; The rate from  Sandon is $78.80.  The Black Prince group near Sproules  has shown up better under the last  assessment work.  Clearing the'ground of stumps and  trees for the Payne compressor was  begun on Wednesday.  A number of carpenters went" up to  the .Washington' mine this'week to overhaul the concentrator.  Frank C. Sewell will leave in' a few  days for New Denver, wheie he will reside the rest of the summer. ,.  The lumber for thenew office at the  American Boy has gone up to the mine  and work will commence at once.  ' The Kelly Merrymakers gave an entertainment in the opera house to a  small audience on Thursday evening.  If our city council had been out doors  all yesterday, tho shower of hail we had  might have strightened them out a  little.  A. Crawford is fitting up a wagon for  Neil O'Donnell to bring down seven  tons of concentrates at a load from the  Star mine.  The C. P.'R. are selling tickets to the  Halcyon Hot Springs and return every  day at $3.85, and on Friday and- Saturday at $2.25.    '  A roaming Lyon and a tiger Lilly  claim the City Clerk's nest in our city  council, and strange to say so far the  Lyon has come out second best.  Work is still being continued at the  Mountain Con. When the property  was first opened up this season it was  expected to be only a month's' run;  We are pleased to state that Miss M.  English, lately.assistant teacher inthe  school here, but now of Kaslo, has successfully passed the late teacher's examination in Nelson, and: receives a  first class B.A. certificate for life. More  credit is due the young ���������������������������lady-- from the :  fact that she had to take up two courses  at once, to procure a first class certificate, on account of her late arrival in  British Columbia.  Council Notes.  Some of the aldermen want to know  why the mayor refuses to install Mr.  Lyons as clerk. He does it solely on  the ground of economy. He cannot see  why Sandon should pay $00 a month,  when Slocan can hire a good union man  for similar duties at $45.  ��������� Some of the aldermen support Mr.  Lyons simply ��������� because it pleases the  union to do so, and the taxpayers of the  city have to be bled that some aldermen  ma)r personally make monejr out of the  pleasing process. How do the taxpayers like it ?  Three aldermen called a meeting of  the council for Monday night illegally,  and passed a resolution censuring the  mayor for taking money out the bank to  pay notes due and salaries, and not  leaving it for Gomra's garnishee to gobble. Do the taxpayers endorse the  mayor's act or do they approve of the  three aldermen's resolution ol censure?  Which ?  Three aldermen at that meeting passed  a resolution saying the citizens of -Sandon wanted the May6r to resign. At  one time three tailors on Tooley street,  London, Eng., met and a passed a resolution commencing, "We, the people of  England." We would like to hear from  the citizens on this matter.  W. E. Gomm, M.D., says he is still an  alderman, but he limits his official acts  to parrot mouthing. He takes the best  of care he does not take a seat at the  Council Board. This same Gomm in May  last endorsed a resolution of the council  proposing to pay half his "smallpox"  bill in July and "the rest as soon after  as possible. Before the middle of July  he sues and garnishees for the whole  amount. l Won't he have a glorious time  making bis action stick even as well as  some of his blisters.  Mr. Lyons acted as City Clerk Monday night without being sworn in. As  the mayor has full power to susgend  any official at will, fun will follow. ���������  Aid. Duffy is haunting the city hall  day and night, entering the city clerk's  and other private offices .by nieans of  skeleton keys. As City Clerk Lilly is  aware of his designs and takes the necessary precautions to cheat him in his  plan, this Sneaking Moses has been  baffled in the object of his research.  The Joker and Cody Litigation.  The Joker and Cody mineral claims  litigation came up for another hearing  in the Supreme court at Vancouver on  Monday last. The following judgement  taken from the Vancouver Province is  the result: "The only trial in the Supreme court this morning was Callahan  vs. Bently, his lordship Justice Martin  piesiding. The plaintiffs sued to set  aside a bill of sale, dated April 3rd, WOO,  made by Sheriff Tuck, of Kootenay, to  the defendant, and transferring to them  the title of Charles Callahan as administrator of Wm. Callahan, of the Joker  and Cody fractional mineral claims.  After argument by Sir Charles Hibbert  Tupper, K. C, and Mr. Fred Peters, K.  C, for the plaintiffs, and by Mr. Joseph  Martin and Mr. E. J. Deacon for defendants, and Mr. Tiffin for defendant  Tuck, judgement went to the plaintiffs  and and injunction restraining the defendants from working the mines was  granted."  The Circumstances in Mining.  Maple Sugar vs. Rocks.  Death of Jas. Williamson.  The sad, but at the same time hot unexpected -'announcement on Monday  'morning of the death of James Williamson is the cause of much regret. The  deceased was one of Sandon's oldest inhabitants, having worked.for E.R. Atherton early in 1880, though for the last  two years or more carrying on business  for himself. The event is all the more  regretable as his wife and two children  have been visiting with her people for  several months, and were not present  during his illness. This arose from the  fact he intended to go to Boston, where  she was as soon as the state of his health  permitted, believing all the time he was  soon to recover. His illness was a complication of complaints, which of course,  rendered prospects the more uncertain  to his physician. Some days ago, however, Mrs. Williamson was "telegraphed  for and she left for Sandon on Saturday  last, arriving here yesterday. Friday,  four days after his" death. The body  was embalmed and otherwise preserved  in good form. The funeral will take  today from the residence of Mr. Dwyer,  near the school house, the remainsgo-  ing to New Denver on th3 regular train  for interment.  There  are  a few circumtances  connected with this mining business that  the general public do not consider; and  if properly considered    by the entire  community would do much to ease off  the past and present troubles.   In the  first place mining is a hazardous and  dangerous calling, rendering accidents/  liable at any time.   This circumstance,  would seem to call for good remuneration.   On  the other hand, to the capitalist, the business is equally risky.   It  is not exaggerating  to say the world  over, not. more than one out of every  five ventures turn sou t profitable.   Under such circumstances, when a'success  is reached, the owner must   have large  profits to pay for   large   losses   on-non  paying   properties.   The   miner  is not  disposed to properly look at  this phase  of the question.   It is only by properly  weighing all these   conditions   on both  sides that a proper  understanding  can  be arrived   at.   The  agitator  and the  basswood politician never consider any >  of these conditions; they only act from  the standpoint of. their own interests,  and  as  a  result   the  country  suffers..-,  whenever their ways bear fruit.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  A certain man at the Star mine purchased about 40 lbs. of maple sugar at  the boarding house there  from the proprietor on Thursday.   He procured aj  new ore sack, placed the sweetstuff in-1  side, and hung it up in a cool place until I  he would take it home in  the evening.  In the meantime he was smacking his  lips and telling, the -employees at the  mill he was goingto have hot cakes and  maple syrup for breakfast on  the morrow.   The "boys" smelt something,in  the air and started to investigate. They  came across the sack hung up  in an out  of the way place and   out   of  curiosity  took it down  to examine It, when  to  their astonishment found it to contain  a quantity of maple susar.    It suddenly  dawned on them that this was -the cause  of the hot cakes and syrup they heard so  much 'about,  and   thought  it a good  chance to play a joke.    They  took out  the sugar and hid   it, refilled, the sack  with about the same quantity of rocks,  and hung it up in its former place.   In  the evening the. owner came along, slung  the sack over his shoulder and  started  for home, a  distance  of about  half a  mile; the"bovs" mulching maple sugar  and splitting their sides with . laughter  as he went proudly down the hill.   His  disgust can well be  imagined,  as   after  telling his worthy spouse the   treat he  had in store, he rolled a pile of rocks on  the table   instead  of  the   sugar.   He  don't care for sugar these "days, and at  bare   mention ' of  the   sweet   stuff he  strolls off in another direction.  The following are the ore shipments  from here this week:  Mine.

Without counting betting as a  hobby���������which.it is not���������170 wealthy  people have been driven to bankruptcy, and in many cases to death  as well, by a violent passion for one  particular amusement. This ranges  over anything between deer-stalking  and collecting stamps, says London  (Answers.  Kenneth Price, who died six  months after his bankruptcy last  year,, owed his disaster to golf, his  one mastering passion. His fame as  a golfer was universal; but he was  the son of Gordon Price, the wealthy  Scotch ironmaster, who left him the  business.    Kenneth started  PLAYING THE ROYAL GAME  as a boy, and for twenty-five , years  he lived solely for golf, playing day  and night���������literally, for he had his  well-known links at Alderley lit by  electric arc-lights, at a cost of over  $35,000.  At St.  Andrews  and  all  the great  golfing   centres  he  spent  thousands,  staying  at  the    most costly  hotels,  and practically living on the    links.  He did the thing well, certainly, for  he held  five amateur championships,  and paid his private "caddie," John j  Maclcod,   $1,500     a     year.    But ah i  ironmaster's   business   needs   looking j  after; and as golfing took up all his  another      windfall  amount ;    but    he  with his    horses,  ;  up   to  $15,000  for  of      ihe      same  lived    and    slept  pending anything  a famous     race  horse, and Pontifex alone cost him  ������10,000.  He was liked.by everyone, and always said that he was perfectly willing- to ruin himself for the sake of  horses. His expensive pets brought  him to the Bankruptcy Court at 1ho  close of '99; and though he was just  able to pay his creditors in full, he  was left practically penniless.  HE ENLISTED  in the Yeomanry, as most people  know, and died of enteric at Bloemfontein only a few months ago.  Tho splendid Lennox collection of  old china and pictures that canid under the hammer a little while ago  ruined its owner, who spent forty  years and the whole of his fortune  on this hobby'. Crawford Lennox,  who was one of the chief connoisseurs of Europe in this line, Jived m  absolute penury at his house in Ed-  wardos Square, Kensington, during  the time he scraped this collection  together���������one of the finest ever  known. He kept' it at the Barnard  Studios, and though he lived on  practically nothing, he had a comfortable income, which he spent solely in purchasing rare and. costly  things for his collection.  I-Ic would live on bread-and-watcr  for a month rather than forego buying'a vase or picture that cost anything up to $2,500; and be spent in  this way not only his income, but  his capital, which was nearly S100,-  000 when he first had it. Most of  The eye of an uneducated person  averages 2,500 miles of reading in a  lifetime.  The Sale of the King's Horses at Wolferton: A Tandem Pair.  King Edward VII., as is well  known, is, and has been for many  years, an enthusiastic breeder of  horses and stock. With the care  taken' in their selection it is not to  be wondered at therefore that much  interest is taken by horse dealers of  the    best class and the-horse-loving  public generally on the occasion of  the sale of any portion of His Majesty's stud. As can well be imagined, there is active competition at  these sales and the bidding is always brisk, .'long' prices being invariably realized.  PERSONAL   POINTERS.  M-  collection     was  time, save about ten days a year, i  ���������which he devoted to business, the j odd corners  Price profits dwindled. And when j sales, where  he found himself insolvent early last  year the reason of his bankruptcy  was "over-expenditure on golf." He  died six months later, at Edinburgh.  It was yachting that brought  about the downfall of Elliot Reid,  owner of the famous " Myrteia."  He owned altogether 153 boats in  liis .career, and for ten years he  claimed to have never been out of  sight of one of his costly craft. His  love of yachting amounted almost to  monomania.;- and though his income  was given' as $30,000 a year, it  could not keep pace with this expenditure on his hobby. Yet he  spent hardly a. penny apart from his  yachts, for he lived on board his favorite craft���������the "Olney"���������having no  dwelling ashore; and when she was  "laid uo" in the mud for the winter,:  he ���������   ,  STILL LIVED ON HER.  1 He had an' example of every new  style of racing-yacht built for him  when it appeared, and lie bought and  '.. said big yachts almost weekly, giving any price the seller chose to ask.  but never getting much for them  when he sold them. He talked, and  dreamed of nothing but yachting,  and was a splendid hand at it, commanding all his own boats; and he  had every kind of yacht conceivable,  except a steam-launch, which was a  thing he abhorred.  However, even $30,000 a year  would not stand such a strain long,  and at his bankruptcy his yachting  expenses were given���������truly enough ���������  as the reason for his failure. The  yachts were his onlj' assets, every  penny of his capital being spent,  und they were sold by official order.  Elliot Reid committed suicide at  (Dartmouth a few weeks later, dying  absolutely penniless.  No man ever loved horses bettor,  or knew more about them, than  Whyte Morley, and they were his  ruin, as a hobby. Not by gambling,  for he never made a solitary bet in  his life ; but he spent three separate  fortunes.  EACH  OVER  $75,000,  Jn breeding and training horses. He  raced to a moderate .extent, never  gambling, and was very successful,  and at Three Elms, his place in  Leicestershire, he kept always . between forty and fifty thoroughbreds  tending them like babies, and paying  all his men well. As his income  could never have been more than  $5,000 a year, it is easy to see how  he "came a cropper."  His luck, in one way, was so  ,that, after he had spent all  money, he received a leg-toy of  his time he spent cither hunting in  for "finds," attending  ��������� he was a'well-known  figure, or poring over his treasures  at tho studios. Eventually lie became bankrupt; but sometime before  he mado over the collection to his  sister, who did not survive him  long, however.

Con-  .sidering that he never had less than  a couple of hundred at a time, and  never sold any, though he often gave  them away, this is not surprising,  especially' as he seldom had one  worth less than S50. The. prices he  gave for spccially-ybred dogs seemed  limited only by the sums the-vendors  were inclined to ask, and he several  Limes gave 8500 for one. The famous Massie collie cost him $1,000.  His kennels at Sutton and Rcigate  were marvels of luxury and costliness, and the weekly bills for food  alone used to run into S50 for each  establishment. He bought, on an  average a couple of new vdogs every  week, sometimes making presents of  entire batches to his friends. There  are not many dog-lovers who do not  know of Arthur'Griffiths; and as his  expensive hobby brought him nothing  in return���������he frequently said he  would as soon think of selling his  owrn brother as of taking money for  a dog ��������� the weight of it broke  through his means, and brought him  into insolvency. He showed that he  had given over $35,000 for the dogs  he then had in hand, to say nothing  of the hundreds he had parted with ;  but when tlie kennels were sold at  the famous Astley sale, they did not  fetch $2,0.00.

'Whatever part of Quebec one chances  Lo  be in, the mentioning of Dodd's Kidney Pills is always enough  u> biing |  forth the grateful ;stbry of- :xn experience with  this, most remarkable, remedy from one of the listeners.

Emile Couatrc, of this town, says  they cured him of Backache and  other Kidney Troubles, and writes a  letter for publication in this paper  to that effect.  "I am going    to say a word concerning Dodd's    Kidney    Pills,"   he  writes.       "I    can  not do  otherwise  than  praise ^his  wonderful  medicine  heartily,    for I am    now,  owing to  Dodd's    Kidney    Pills,     in    perfect  health.      For some time I have not  felt the slightest    pain in my back.  My kidneys arc    workin'g    properly.  When I go to bed I find rest, whereas  before using Dodd's    Kidney Pills I  got up more fatigued than the night  before.    I had pain in my back and  headache which broke my sleep.  ; "I have taken only three boxes of.  Dodd's Kidney Pills and cannot help  but credit them with    my cure.

It is  a square  tower of,   early. Gothic architecture.  All its parts still preserve their normal      relative     positions      without  cracks or fissures.   The tower, which  is about 115 feet high,'is 5 feet out  of perpendicular     at    the    summit.  There are no records to show whether the inclination was part of the architect's design, or whether it is tho  result of an  earthquake  or  of  slow  changes    in the    inclination   of the  soil.   For many years there has been  no change in tlie slope of the tower.  WHEtTE-:  OaaTCI^oaw   VIT33J^..

A    MARVELLOUS    DISCOVERY.  Diseases of the Tfiroat,  Lungs and  A  THOUSAND   MILES  AT  SEA.  In  Several    Parts   of  Ships can get that  Land.  the  Earth  far from  The question has been asked, is it  .    possible to     sail   1,000  miles  from  land?   This  can be  done at several  points;   By     leaving  San  Francisco  and sailing northwestward into   the  North     Pacific,  a spot     is reached  where there is no land���������-not even an  islet���������for 1,000 miles    in any direction.   So, too, sailing from the southern  point    of Kamchatka,    southeastward, ships reach a point equally distant from land of any kind, the  nearest to the north being the    Aleutian Islands, and to the south the  outlying members of    the Sandwich  group.   In the southern Indian Ocean  it is possible to sail 1,000 miles out  from the southern points of Australia and New Zealand, and still be as  far  from  any     other  land,   and  the  same may be done in a westerly direction from      Cape    Horn.   Indeed,  from this point     a much longer distance may b,c reached, for the southern Pacific,  between the Horn     and  New  Zealand,   covers. a space  of 80  degrees of longitude and 40 of latitude of     absolutely     unbroken sea,  making its central point over 1,200  miles from anywhere.

SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1901.  CITY MATTERS.  That' eminent authority, Aid. ���������Duffy',  says "Old Cliffe is a scab" for offering to  take the City Clerkship'at $50 a month.  As that gentleman has served a good  apprenticeship at scratching all his life,  he ought to be an authority on scabs  also. Th6 following letter, however,  ought to open his eyes a little:  Slocan, B.C., July 19, 1901.  C. Cliffe, Esq.,  Sandon.  Dear .sir,���������Your enquiry received le  City Officials. .  We figure on this basis: Police magistrate $30 per month, the city  retaining  all fines, &c.; Clerk, Assessor and Collector $45.   Total $75 per month for all  offices combined.   I think' the council  made a mistake  in   putting   these  all  under one head, but   they looked   at it  from an economy point, and this will  have to be determined.   The Clerkship  after the first month will. not   take   up  more than two or - three hours per day,  and I fail to see any use in paying more  than $30 or $40  per month,  although I  . believe in fair wages  and  will   know  later on' what such an officer should get.  Am sorry to hear of   the   bad   state of  affairs   in   your city,  and I can assure  you no such thing will happen  to us  here as long as I lnive anything to do  with civic affairs.  Yours truly,  A. York, Mayor.  Now, Mr. Foley, the Slocan Clerk, is  a good miners'union man; we understand; and it is, therefore, only right to  ask. Aid. DuffY if he too is a scab. The  trouble with some of our city council is  they are ignorant of their own ignorance, and have no more knowledge of  the work to be done in any of the offices  and what it is worth, than a Hottentot  has of the inhabitants of Mars. The  idea then is to call any and every man a  scab, who suggests proper prices for all  departments of city work.  Slocan pays its Chief of police $75 a  month, Sandon commenced by paying  Larry Doolan $110, and we now pay $1.00.  Slocan commenced by paying its Clerk  $45, Sandon paid Mr. Sewell $85 for the  same work, and is now paying $60, and  soon in all the other departments.   If  Slocan keeps on as its has begun, it will  have reason to bless the day, it was incorporated, while Sandonites have reason   to   curse  incorporation   from   its  inception because of the extravagance  of its councils., If our\ councils  of the  first two years had done their duty there  should have been from $4,000 to $6,000  of available assets the'day after the fire,  and they should since the fire have run,  the business at about $1,500 a year less  than   they   paid, without in  any way  impairing efficiency.   There  ib now a  net debt of $6,000 due by the city, and  with nothing to show for it but extravagant management.   When the receiver  takes hold of civic matters, the people  will then know where to place the responsibility.   The trouble all along has  been ''Sandon was a city," and   it had  to be saddled with the outlay of a place  of 6,000 people.  The man who suggested  an   outlay  in    line    with    the   size  and revenue of the   place  was   only a  scab and a crank.   The workmanship  of the sages and philosphers of the past,  has brought the town to the bankrupt  court, and we take it the people will rejoice  in   the  indulgence of  past  and  present wisdom.   If the people are willing to see   their  hard earned taxes go  this way to support aldermen's pets, we  have   nothing  more  to    say    on   the  subject.  NERVOUS  PROSTRATION  Iti  failure of strength.  is only a  It takes strength to get strength.  Get strength of stomach first.  Your stomach will then look  out for your body.

SCOTT & BOWNE,   Chemists, Toronto*  s a moral certainty that if the council is kept intact until next January,  which is very doubtful, the 'situation  will be even worse thanit is now.: For  instance, here is a forecast of how  things may go for the six months:  Salaries  $ 2000  Water, light and fuel  1000  Interest on debt -.  450  Feed for team   150  Hospital ...\.  100  Incidentals say $100 a-month - 600  Repairing Harris'sidewalk .. 100  Sinking fund  400  $ 4,800  ��������� Now it is a moral certainty that in  the six.months there will not come in  Realty taxes more than........ $ 2000  A, R. HEYLAND,  ENGINEER.  AND PROVINCIAL LAND SURVEYOR.  SANDON, B.C.  Scavenger fees..  Business licenses, &c.  Fines, &c   500  500  300  THE END.  It cannot be said that this paper had  not from the first of municipal government in thia'city pointed out continual  mismanagement. It was from the start  but a village, and because it bore a city  name, the councils continuously felt it  incumbent upon them to place on its  head all the expenses of a large corporation. The place was, therefore, overtaxed from the 'first, but civic govern ���������  ment is virtually at theend of its tether.  As we pointed out in our last issue,the  city on the first of the month owed  $8,914, and had $2,841 of available assets  against it, leaving a net debt of $6,073.  Since then about $2,400 has been paid  out of licenses, but it does not relieve,,  the situation one iota, as .this is taking-  money that should be in the bank to  meet expenses the coming six mouths  $ 3,300  When   the  net  debt was  on the 1st  over $6,000, we cannot see how it,can be  less than from $7,000 to $7,500 on the 1st  of January, and as after that date $1,000  a year will have to be^added for schools,  the picture is anything but promising.  The   taxpayers   must see   from   this  I statement, that instead of wrangling to  get in high salaried officials, and squab-  bling.to pass accounts of a shady nature,  what is wanted is men pledged to economy and retrenchment,  and  who have  the experience   to   enable  them to go  about both.   A vigorous effort should be  made to collect^ realty taxes  before as  well   as  since   the  fire,  or at least to  hypothecate  what   is  due for sinking  fund, and relieve the,place of this burden of oversight from the first municipal government.   If the proper stepsare  not taken at once   to reconstruct our  civic management on lines to materially  decrease instead of increase our floating  as well as bonded debt, the city might  better be placed in   the   hands of a receiver at once, as   there   it will have to  go when the situation" is much -more  complicated than at present.

It would certainly be in the interests  of Canada as a whole, if the Canadian  governments would take steps to break  up connections between Canadian and  American Labor and other unions wherever found. Both countries have passed  alien labor laws to prevent labor from  either side crossing and competing with  resident labor. If the enforcement of  such laws is desirable.it is just as necessary the interests of labor on either side  should be prevented in all respects from  clashing with one another. There is no  secret in the fact that Wilson, the  American agitator in the C. P. I?..' trackmen's strikej advised the strike here to  change conditions across the line, as he  admitted the C. P. R. men were getting  better wages than the American trackmen. <��������� The idea was to make the Canadian trackmen monkeys to pull chestnuts out of the fire for their American  neighbors.

We  have in Sandon a playwright who popped up last week,- that would put the  great Shakespear and the renowned Sir  Henry' Irving to shame.   The play is  entitled ''A Tale of One City," and- the  whole caste is set forth in a sneaky and  streaky paper, with the accompaniment  of a lyre.   This genius reminds us forcibly of Artemus Ward's monkey���������-he is  an amusing little cuss.   His head is the  shape of a long potatoe, with a tuft of  bristling   black   hair   on   the  top that  drops down into his eyes, which will  never meet the frank open gaze of another.   He is collector, advance agent  and general all round   sucker  to ��������� the  coterie of conspirators and agitators who  are in the plot.   To give himself an air  of importance his pockets are stuffed  with  bloodthirsty, Anarchist   journals  from Butte and the Coeur d' Alenes,  wrapped around with copies of the Nelson Tribune, the contents of which he  rehashes   for his   hearers.   When the  play is going to appear anywhere, this  Cheap John goes to the station to see  how chances are, funds do not permit  travelling in passenger coaches.   He enquires if a hog car is going near his des-  . tination, and receiving a negative reply  he spreads hisspindleshanksandissoon  hoofing it down the tie route, counting  the crossbars two at a time.  The chief dramatis personae of the  play is the clown, who wags an JM. D.  at the end of his name. As most of this  class of performers usually drive a donkey or a mule, we suppose it stands for  Mule Driver, lie is not particular where  he holds his rehearsals ; sometimes it is  in the cit}- hall, on the street or in the  rear end of tailor 6hop on Reco avenue,  when with eyes rolling in his head,  his thumbs stuck in his vest under the  armpits and standing on tiptoe to reach  over his hearers he bellows forth in a  . loud cracked voice "I'm talking now,"  which everyone within a live mile radius  is painfully aware of. He then reciteB  how.Lwaa elected councillor by the grace  of a city clerk; how I stabbed him in  the back and put him out of office for  the favor received; how I mulched the  taxpayers of a city into a smallpox bill  of $900 and other amounts; how when I  got everything I wanted handed in my  resignation.     : -;  The next is "Bucking.Tom" who blunders forth about scab labor, bucking the  union- and plugging his neighbor's,  waterpipe. For the last act he is Uireat-.  ened[with a broken neck if repeated and  he never goes there any more. '���������>  There are one or two other performers  who  go   through contortions with cheques, but the best scene is the last. Just  when the conspirators think they have  everything all their way in steps the old  man, the guardian of the treasury.

During the hot months the gospel of abstinence should bo most strenuously  and;continuously taught and accepted, :or illness is the result, writes  Dr.". J. Livingstone.  First, don't entirely shut out the  sunlight because it makes the room  somewhat warmer or fades the carpet. Life is more than a little extra discomfort or the brightness of  carpets; and, when you shut out the  sun'you shut out the great vitalizcr  and, germ destroyer. You need not,  of course, have the sun streaming in  all day, but let it come in freely-for  an hour or two in the morning.  Use us little gas us possible for  lighting purposes. It is estimated  that- one gas jet consumes as much  oxygen as six people and adds to the  Heat. A lamp makes far less heat,  but. much more than an electric  light, which uses none of the room's  oxygen.

Do not sleep in a draught.  But although you should not sleep  in a draught, the air should circulate freely through the room. Many  people close their windows at night,  because they are "afraid of the night  air." Night air cannot in tho absence of the sun, be as bitalizing as  day air, but it is a thousand times  less dangerous than the air which,  in a closed room, becomes heavy and  poisonous from the exhalations from  both body and lungs.  Don't drink too much ice water.  This is a dangerous practice. Ice  water allays thirst for a few minutes  .without quenching it. For this reason one who is addicted to ice water usually drinks enough to cause  a';~ full and bloated feeling, and to  stop!digestion by unduly cooling the  stomach. Lemonade, made from  clear, ��������� cool���������not ice cold���������water, is  the.;'most refreshing and satisfying  drink for summer.  Let your heartiest meal be at  night, or whenever your work for the  day /is over. Fruit, toast, soft-boiled eggs and oatmeal make a good  breakfast.' Where the intermission  between hours of labor is short, no'  heavy, food should be taken into tlie  stomach. Hundreds of people who  /eat;-heartily, and return to work almost, immediately afterwards/ have  dyspepsia.  els. It is well not to expose embroidery to the air while it is wet, and  it should never be dried in the ' sun,  nor should it be folded or rolled  while it is damp. Before it is entirely dry iron it on a piece of thick  flannel on a soft, padded board. .Lay  the embroidered side down, cover it  with a dry cloth, over that, place a  wet cloth and press with a moderT  atcly hot iron. Instead of folding it  roll it on a large, round wooden  stick.  DOGS OF WAR.  ;   WRITING- A LETTER,,  The-most striking thing about an  ideal'letter is its flavor of the personality of the writer. A letter  should convey, as nearly as possible,  the same effect as would a talk between the writer and her correspondent. What is a good letter to your  mother or sister perhaps would be  worthless, to anyone else. Always  remember to whom you arc writing,  and write to and for that one person.  General descriptions and observations will bo out of place in 99 cases  out of 100. Make your letter an index of your mind on the subjects  you-believe to be interesting to the  one to whom you are writing. Put  your own individuality into even  your observations on the weather.  Avoid long excuses for not writing  earlier or more frequently. Like apologies for not returning visits or  calls, those of the lagging letter-  writer only emphasize the neglect.  Make up for previous shortcomings  by writing fully, sympathetically,  and-vivaciously, so that the pleasure  of reading your letter will outweigh  any disappointment you may have  given, or cause it to be forgotten,  NEW WAYS TO COOK CORN.  Corn Oysters: Orate one dozen ears  corn in a pan add a pinch of salt and  a little pepper, drop in spoonfuls into a well-greased skillet, and as soon  as brown, turn over like griddle  cakes. They should be the size of  large oysters. Excellent breakfast  dish. / /       -  Corn Fritters: Cut the corn from  5 or 6 ears corn, break an egg, in it  and add saltTaud pepper to suit the  taste. Drop from a-large spoon into  a 'frying.pan with hot butter in it,  and fry on both sides to a rich  brown.  Fried Green Corn: Cut the corn  from the;cob, and put it in a skillet  that has hot abutter and lard mixed.  Season with pepper and salt, .'.stir'  it often to:keep from burning, and  cook it with a cover over it. Corn  cooked on the cob, if any is left  from the meal, may be cooked in  this way and put: in the oven and  browned. ,  Corn Custard: Cut corn from the  cob, mix it, not too-thinly, with  milk, add two or three beaten eggs,  pepper and salt to taste, and bake  half an hour. To be served as a vegetable.  ASK ING THE DO CTOR.  Don't be afraid to ask too much  of your doctor; you pay him for his  visits, and they should be more  than mere social calls. Some doctors rush into a room, repeat a stale  joke or two to make the patient  laugh, or pay her a flattering compliment; then feel . licr pulse, and  look wondrous wise ; then write a  prescription for the clear knows  what���������but we doubt very much if the  doctor does; then rush out again  without giving anyone a chance to  ask him a question, or tell'him what  had  happened   in     his   absence.

It is saiu    that    at the battle of���������  Gravelotte,   during the  Franco-Prussian wai\ there was for some hours,  at. a critical    point of the fields;, an  appearance of greater success oh the  part of the French than of the Ger--  mans.     Von Moitke had been.- made  aware of the perilous position of his  forces in  that quarter,   and he hurried to the spot.    For some time it  was ��������� observed  by  those  around  him.-'  that he appeared much more anxious,  than usual. (>��������� /'/ '';���������''  He gained a prominent position,  where he was greatly exposed to the  enemy's fire. He held his cigar .between two fingers of his left .hand;;  from time to time striking a. fusee,"  and applying it to the weed, but always neglecting to put the cigar between; his lips. When the crisis of  the day was evidently approaching  the last fusee had been burnt,; and  nothing but the- cold ashes of  Moltke's cigar remained.  At length Bismarck's attention/was  directed to the great general, upon  whose sagacity the fortune of the  fight ; so largely depended. Moving  up to him, Bismarck quietly struck  a fusee, applied it to Moltke's cigar,  and the welcome sight of the blue  tobacco smoke curling up from the  commander's lips rewarded the attention of the Chancellor. Bismarck  drawing back in his solid way, said,  with exultation in his voice: 'All  must ��������� now bo well, Moltkd'  smokes again."   The battle was won.   .4   NESTS   IN    CROMWELL'S    GUN.

They are trained to guard baggage,  guard, ammunition, carry messages  from one part of the field to another  a-nd await a reply; give the alarm on  the approach of the enemy by running into camp without barking, and  to do ambulance duty by seeking .the  wounded in cover or carrying first  aid appliances. '   ,  Major Richardson has for some  time been in Germany investigating  the method" of training there, and is  now giving daily exhibitions in. the  grounds of the Crystal Palace in  connection with tho ambulance section of the Naval and Military Exhibition of the practical uses of  dogs attached to ' regiments in war  time.  .The "performance opens with an attack by the enemy, who are repulsed.  When firing ceases the dogs begin  their work of carrying .first aid to  the wounded and seeking those who  are wounded in cover.  Attached to the collar of each ambulance dog is a small bottle of  brandy.' On cither side of his saddle cloth, on which the red cross is  conspicuous, are pockets, one containing bandages and the other necessaries for "first aid," the other a  ration, of biscuit for the dog himself. Strapped across the back of  each is a waterproof sheet for the  dog to lie on when guarding baggage  or on-sentry duty.  ��������� ,The messenger dogs have a waterproof envelope attached to-their collars for the conveyance and protection of written messages and despatches.  ��������� . It is wonderful to watch the dog  seeking for the ��������� supposed wounded  men in the shrubberies and rhododendron thickets of the Crystal Palace .grounds, and to note their .'sagacity- and the keen interest they  take, in their task.  ���������In Germany Great Danes are employed in carrying ammunition; but  Major; -Richardson has trained : his  own Irish wolfhound for this .-.' purpose. The ammunition is carried,in  two leather pockets strapped across  the dog's back. It was- strange, indeed, to eyes accustomed'to see  handsome and gentle Knight of Kerry in'the show ring to look upon  him as a dog of war. He '��������� is a  wheaten colored hound and a famous  stud dog. , '  Leno, o ne of tlie larger of the  other dogs, is a cross between a.St..  Bernard and a collie,, and probably  it.is some strain of the former breed:  which makes him so keen in seeking  for the wounded and carrying, despatches.  One of the Glasgow volunteer regiments is in treaty for the purchase  of three dogs.  ' .-������������������-,;  DIDN'T    MIND    WHAT  SHE  HAD.

DUST  Day Not Very Far Removed When  Vitreous Materials Will Play-  Principal Role.  According to M. Jules Henrivaux,  who originated the famous Palais  sLuinincux, or palace of light,, at-.the  last Paris Exposition, and who was  until recently director of the-great  . glass manufactory at St. Gobain," in  France, glass will ere long come -to  play such a great part in the world's  economy that-the next age is- likely  to be distinguished as "the age' of  glass." ��������� '  ;  M. Henrivaux is an enthusiast on  glass. He believes it to be the ma.:  terial of the future. He does not  pretend that the world can look for  glass cannons or glass men-o'-war,  or glass greyhounds of the ocean, nor  does he contemplate the substitution  of-, vitreous machinery for that now  employed in the various processes .of  manufacture, but he does claim that  glass' is the best substance known for  every kind of structural purpose, and  especially for dwelling houses. In  short, if the visions of M. Henrivaux  are realized, says the London Daily  Express, all the world will be living  in glass houses before long.  The point of the idea is found in  the- inexhaustible suppls of the mn-  ��������� terials from which glass is made, in  its adaptability to all shapes and  forms, its durability, and its cleanliness. ' With regard to the second  point, it is obvious that glass can  be shaped, colored and decorated to  an extent of which no.other material  is capable, and it is upon this aspect of the idea that Al. Henrivaux  lavishes his imagination.  GLASS  STATUES AND DRESS  MATERIALS.  will be  Even  glass  abso-  inde-  There are six ways in which glass  can.be manipulated.. It can be cast  into window panes, paving stones,  ��������� panels, &c. It can be moulded into  cornices, slates, wall decorations,  and even statues. It can be blown  into bottles, tumblers, vases and all  the utensils comprised under the  name of "glassware." It can be  blown and ground into crystals, lenses, prisms and other, objects'of art  and utility.. It can be drawn 'into  the finest threads and made into  ���������pipes,, baskets and dress materials/  It can be turned into ' mosaics and  enamels, and can be brought into the  closest imitation of most of the preciousstones. -���������.':���������  Imagine, with M. Henrivaux, the  construction of a glass house'.- The  foundation and the walls would be  constructed,of a variety of glass, recently invented, called "stone glass"  which has already successfully withstood the severest tests. When  crushed it gives- a resistance three  times as great as granite. When  subjected to heat or cold it is found  less sensitive than steel. When submitted to friction it shows less wear  than porphyry. Shock, as of a hammer blow, it resists to a degree  twenty-two times as severe as that  which would fracture marble. .The  test of tension has practically no effect on it whatever.  GLASS HOUSES.  The walls, then, would be built of  glass, held together by angle-iron, so  as    to    permit    of a hollow    space  through which pipes could pass  (the  pipes    Ihemselves     being glasswork)  conveying    hot    air,     hot and cold  water, gas, electric wires, drains, and  everything needed for the health and  comfort  of  the  inhabitants.     Stairs  and    balustrades,    ceilings and wall  decorations,     mantelpieces   and   fireplaces  would all  be    constructed  of  glass.    Some, of M. Henrivaux's conceptions  in  the  way  of decorations,  in which the glass is made opaque or  tinted with brilliant colors, or made  silver    and    golden,  or arranged  iii  prisms and crystals with facets lilce  diamonds,    are perhaps   too   fanciful  to   be  taken  seriously,   but  through  them    all    there runs the same enthusiasm, the same Belief that glass,  as Thiers once said of Louis Napoleon, is capable of anything.  Chairs and tables, in the new glass  age,' will be made of vitrified material, toughened to the strength of oak"  and. mahogany.       Cooking  utensils,  plates and cups and saucers,  made1 of the same substance,  knives-   and     forks  will  have  handles,  if not glass blades.  The new glass house will be  lutely clean and practically  structible. The whole of, its surface  can.be/washed from the top.story to  the basement, without a trace of humidity being left. Dust cannot collect on its polished face, and the  spider, will find no place on which to  hang its  cobwebs.  They have already begun to pave  the streets of Paris with glass, >irid  it is. found that the substance, while  practically indestructible, is admirably, suited to the feet of both men  and .beasts; and as it neither hold's  nor makes any dirt, it is absurdly  easy to clean. Its-only fault is ihat  it somewhat increases the noise of  the; -traffic, but even this might by  and^.by,be overcome?  COST NOT EXCESSIVE. .,._  The question of cost lias not been  left out ��������� of account. Glass can be  made out of almost anything amenable to the influence of lire. The  stone glass, to which reference has  already been .'.made, is manufactured  mainly from what have hitherto been  regarded as' waste substances. The  slag heaps which ' disfigure mining  arid iron districts ^are all convertible  'into ' glass. Evidently ..the days of  bricks and slates are numbered.  Perhaps it might be possible in  connection with one of the many  projected exhibitions to construct on  a modest but sufficient scale a dwelling of the kind M. Henrivaux describes. People would then-be able  to experience the actual sensation: of  walking along glass floors, of climbing a glass staircase, of being surrounded by glass walls, of sitting oil  glass chairs at glass tables, drinking tea out of glass cups and stirring it with glass teaspoons. ;  How far this could be accomplished  with clue avoidance of monotony -it  is-hard to say. Certainly Al. Henrivaux is enthusiastic enough to believe in the fullest development t of  his  idea.      -. ,      ' ;  k Lady Who Cures Her Hiisfcand of  His Drinking .Habits Writes  of Her Struggle to  ���������;Save HerHome.

(Copy)  Paisley,  Out., Dec. 11, 1900.  The Samaria Remedy Co.,  30 Jordan Street, Toronto, Ont.  Dear Sirs,���������I penned a few lines  to you some time ago,���������as a member  of the temperance cause, I wrote for  information; at that time I had in  my mind friends whose son was a  great cause of anxiety and trouble  on account of his drunken habits. I  strongly urged the friends to tiy'the  remedy I saw advertised in the Toronto Globe. They did so. It was  |������the Samaria Remedy that was administered and I am pleased  to  in-1  ing and' dash with adroitness is tho  man to command a pursuing column.

The enemy naturally uses his freshest troops to  cover his  retreat,  and  his  cavalry  and     horse-artillery  are  prepared  to give trouble.     The pursuing general,  whenever he comes up  with the'flying-    foe,     hammers him  with'   guns     and   charges   him   with  cavalry.     He  hits him  in  the  Hanks  if possible, so as to retard him while  the infantry can conic ���������up    and"  fall  upon  him.     Reserves  of  infantry-(if  any)   will at  this  juncture  naturally  be used, so as to spare the foot already tired with a long- day's lighting.

A Former Labor Organizer Says Canada Should Be Independent.  P.J. Loughrin, who was formerly general organizer in the Dominion of Canada for the Federation of Labor, came  to town yesterday, after an extended  tour in the north country. It will be re  meinbered that some live years ago Mr.  " Loughrin strongly advocated in thepres9  and on the public platform the policy of  putting export duties on pulpwood, pine  logs and nickel ore, and the formation  of regulations forbidding the export of  these materials unless in a manufactured  condition. . During his recent tour Mr.  . Loughrin, who was intimately acquaint-'  ed with the Algoma of four years ago,  made a comparison of the country as it  then was with the situation today;  "The transformation is marvelous,"  said he.   "Four years ago the Soo was a  ,   town of 3000 people:   today it haB at  least 8000.   Four years ago Blind River  had 210 people; now it has 1100, and the  increase of population was directly due  to the prohibition of the export of logs.  The Bruce mines have been opened up,  and there are 450 men there now mining  copper.   The population of Thessalon is  2300, an increase of 500 in four years.  .Victoria Mines four, years   ago was a  primeval forest"; now, as   the   result of  the establishment  of  Ludwig   Mond's  nickel works, it is a town of   1400 peo-  . pie.   Copper ; Clift' and Sudbury, have  . doubled in population,.very largely as a  result of the policy which, has  induced  them to refine the nickel to the extent  , of 80 per cent., whereas formerly the  . matte was shipped  but; entirely unrefined.   Cook's'mills are running again  night and day.   At Rayside, Dean Lake  and Thessalon River new saw mills have  been erected, givingemployment in the  aggregate to hundreds of men.   Stur-  eeon Falls is becoming a fine town, and  the   railway   from   North   Bay  to the  Terniskaming has at last been begun.  Thefutureof Mattawa   is  assured, for  its resources in pulpwood are   the bfst  in  Canada, the  upper  Ottawa   being  tributary.  "Now what has done-all this ? . Simply the logical carrying out of the policy  of manufacturing pur own resources in  our'own country, and finding employment for the surplus labor that was so  much in evidence in 1897. Wages of  laborers at all points in Algoma in 1897  were $1.10; today the con tractor-for the  Soo water works is not able to secure  men for lees than $2.00 for a day of 10  hours, while $1.75 is the standard in the  whole north country from Mattawa to  the Soo.  "These wages are not the outcome of  labor organization ; there is not in the  district a single labor union except the  one I formed in 1897 at the Soo. Yet  because I advocated the manufacture of  our own resources on our own soil by  our own people, Mr. Gompers of the  American Federation of Labor withdrew  my so-called commission as organizer.  The reason he gave was that I was advocating something that would be detrimental to the laboring class south of  the line. Looking at these facts, I make  the claim that Canadians should attend  to their own industries and industrial  organizations. If the trackmen in the  present difficulty would tell Gompers  and Wilson that they, are capable of  obtaining more wages by applying individually to the local superintendent,  and did not need the services of a Yankee controlled committee, -they would  be better off. I am no judge of men if  Mr. McNicoll complies with the trackmen's demands so long as they seek  recognition through these parties.  "The increase in wages in the past  four years in northern Ontario has not  cost the labor class one two-cent postage stamp. E. B. Eddy, F. H. Clergue,  the Laurentide Pulp Company, and the  policy of the Ontario government in  forcing the manufacture of raw material  in Canada, did more to increase the  wages of laborers in the north country  in three months than all the paid officers of the American Federation will do  in the next five years."���������Toronto Globe.  ware  and  Mining Supplies  MINERS':  Gold Seal White Rubber Coats  Black and Yellow Oil Coats  | Hip Rubber Boots, leather soles  j Knee Rubber Boots; leather soles  Blankets, Pillows, Quilts, etc.  CALX AND GET OUR PRICES.  and  *T' Rails and Track Iron,  Crow's Nest Coal,-  Bar and Sheet Iron.
