 y .'-JV  ���������J*.  ���������������������������yn���������������  VOL 2.      NO. 50.  SANDON, B. C.T SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  line Owners Offer $3.00 a Day for  Eight-Hour Shifts.  Sandon, B.C., May 6th, 1899.  ,    ' -NOTICE.      ���������  Owing to the action of the ' British  Columbia Legislature in enforcing the  eight-hour law in the Slocan, the silver-lead mine owners of the district  consider that they owe it to their  employees, who are affected by the  change rendered necessary by the  operation of the act, to place their intentions with regard to it on record.  In"the first place, the mine owners  of this district were not consulted in  any way as to this radical change in  the mining law, and on being informed  of the passage of the act, made every  effort in their power to have the law  held in abeyance until it could be  carefully^ considered by those interested. '   '  It was pointed out that the standard  rate of wages for miners, $3.50 for a  ten-hour shift, was as high as paid  anywhere in the United States or Canada, and that this rate was satisfactory  to mine owners and employes.  ���������It was further pointed out that by  reducing the hours of work from ten to  .eight hours the wage-earning capacity  of the miner would-be more than proportionately reduced as far as the  mine owners'are concerned.  To give greater force and unanimity  to tho expressed opinion of the mine  'owners, a meeting of the ' Silver-Lead  Mine Owners' Association of British  Columbia was convene;! in order to got  an expression of opinion about which  there would be no uncertainty.  The purpose of this association is to  foster arid protect the mining interests  of the province, and it is not in any  sense a combination -of employers  against employes, as the'relations be;  tween tho wage earners and the employers have always been most friendly, and it is hoped will continue so.  The mine owners were for their di\;'g  .quite willing to continue tu p-y ?3:50  for ten hours' work, but tho enforcement of the , eight-hour Jaw having  rendered this impossible, they now  offer to pa) miners at the rate of $3.00  per eight-hour shift, this rate being  i higher in ^proportion to the hours  wo>-ked than the old rate.  To give effect to this intention a resolution was parsed at a meeting of the  Silver-Lead Mine Owners' Association  held in Sandon on May die Sth, as follows :  ���������"That it is  the sense of mi no representatives of this association that the  standard rate of wages paid to miners  "be in future   $3 00 per day of eight  ��������� hours." ,  This resolution was signed by the  representatives of the mines whose  namss are hereto appended.    <  These mines wish to stato that as  the eight-hour law is to be enforced  not later than June the 12th, they are  ready to hire miners on and after June  1st, at the above rate; And they further wish it to be understood that this  ���������change in the working hours and the  . -consequent contraction of the wage-  ���������Oarning capacity of the miner, was  forced upon tkem by the Act of the  British Columbia legislature, and was  unsought for by them :  of the province, it may be pointed out'  that this law is far-reaching in the injuries it must inflict upon the mining  interests of the province, and on the  amount of wages earned by the men.  It means reducing the hours of labor  in the mines from twenty hours a day  to sixteen hours, as many of the mines  are so circumstanced that three shifts  cannot be worked to advantage. This  means a reduction of twenty per cent,  in the amount of the production of  many mines, and a reduction of twenty  percent, in the develop������ent work  being corried on in mines preparing  for production, and a reduction in' the  the supplies used in the mines.  The moBt amicable relations existed,  and still exist, between the employers  and the employed at the mines. The  men were earning good wages, equal  to any being paid in camps" in ��������� the  United States, and higher than those  paid in many, and they were rendering  good services for these wages. If any  discontent was rife at the existing  state of affairs, it was not generally  known. It is, therefore, deeply to bo  regretted that the Legislature has seen  fit to disturb the existing harmony, to  interfere with the growing prosperity  of the mining districts, to reduce the  wago-earning power of the men -employed and to interfere with the free  right of contract hitherto enjoyed.  ' As to the future, after the first of  June nex1', at the 'mines represented  by the undersigned, the standard rate  of .wages that will be paid to skilled  miners for an eight-hours working day  will be three dollars (������3.00), and other  labor wilt necessarily be also paid for  according to the time worked:  The Hall Mines, Limited.

At the first annual meeting of the  British Columbia and New Find Gold-  fields Corporation, Limited, which was  held in London on April 25th, Arthur  Fell, the chairman of the board of directors, who retired, was re-elected. In  his report the chairman gave some  interesting information concerning  the Athabasca property which the  company 'is oper-iting. Concerning the company's milling operations  since October last he said: "In October, which was a broken month, it  crushed 400 tons, of the value of $1961,  or $4.90 per ton. That we considered  disappointing. .The next-^ month's  crushing was 728 tons, which produced  $7560,' or an average of $10 39,per ton  City Council.'

In  January it crushed 713 tons; which  produced $5190, "or $7.29 per. ton. In  February the manager pursucd'a different method. " The ore "was getting so  very much richer that he put more  frue vanners on, and ran the battery  more slowly. Four hundred and  twenty-four tons , were crushed, and  S798S, S18 93 per ton.' In March -165  tons were crushed,-"which "produced  $9650, or over $20.75 per ton."  "Although we are only getting 20.75  Cwt. per ton the ore is r ally running  somewhere about two ounces, and it is  manifest that tho balance is lost in  the tailings. We have had specimens  taken v every day for . -i month, and  these have been shipped to Vancouver  where they will-be tested with cyanide, and we aro awaiting theropiniona  of experts there ns to whether" the cyanide plant would be the best method  of extracting the one ounce lost in tho  tailings!

Wo   arc getting  with our  present battery- about   one  ounce, and with 5G0 tons a month you  see what a difference it makes.   Fivo  hundred tons would produce ������2,000 a  month, and we  are losing another ������2,-  000.   That we must stop, for it will  make the difference   between paying  very   handsome   and   very   moderate  profits.   The New Find Company' has  50,100 in the Athabasca, and they are  put down at cost price,   ������7,57l,   but  they are quoted  in the papers at  1 to  1 4-16, and have been pretty steady at  that trice for some weeks.   We are  not driven to realize,   because we believe it will improve steadily; but we  can realize portions from time to time,  and  having other very good business  before us we shall do so when occasion  arises in the   course of the   coming  summer."  The only reference made by the  chairman to the deal, which was then  pending of the bonding of the Dandy  and other groups of properties on Toad  mountain, which has since b^on carried through, was contained in the following words : "We havo offered us in  the neighborheod a large undeveloped  property which we can develop on  very easy terms, and having .our own  manager on the spot it may very well  suit, us 'to take it up."���������-Nelson Tribune. ' ���������.'���������.���������  and of these many will die.  The express train for Philadelphia,  scheduled to leave Reading at8:30p.m.,  was about half an hour late in leaving.  In the meantime many passengers on  the train from Harrisburg went aboard  the Pniladelphia express while it stood  in the station at Reading, but, the  number of Harrisburg passengers  being too great to be accommodated  on the express train, it w.is decided to  sendan extra train to Philadelphia to  run as "a section to the express. The  extraordinary train load from Harrisburg was due to the number of people  who went to the state capitol to witness the exercises connected with the  unveiling of the Hartranft monument  there yesterday. The second section  left here about twenty minutes after  the express departed. At Exeter station the first train stopped for orders,  and while standing was crashed iuto  by the second section with terrible  force, the latter,train at the time running at great speed. The locomotive  ploughed through two of the rear cars,  reducing them to splinters. It then  mounted the end of the third car from  therear. The first.car of the second  train was also wrecked.  The names of the identified dead are':  Captain Street. Pniladelphia; George  F. Leaf, Fort .Washington, Pa.; William Staler, Geo. Shaw, Harry Beaty,  William Lours, Henry Welz, John  Johnson, John Siingluff, Harry H.  Uuchbing, George H. Anders, Hiram  Shelly, George Shall, Benton Silvis, all  of Norristown ; Miss Annie McGraw of  Ashland.. The train is what is known  as the ''Cannon Ball" express, and the  special extra section of it crashed into  the ordinary train.  ' John Eshaner, of Harrisburg, who  was in the smoking car. escaped practically unhurt. Mr. Sholner said to a  reporter : "It was positively the most  terrible scene I have ever looked upon.  The .rreck was indescribable. Human  .irmg and limbs were sticking out of  the windows with splinters of wood  driven through them, and the dead  bodies were piled in and around the  wreckage, which made a sickening  sight. The worst feature was, that  fchi-re was-only one doctor on the train,  that whs doctor J. K. Weaver, and he  did heroic service in relieving temporarily at least, the sufferings of those  who wore injured,  Twenty-eight dead and '50' injured,  some so badly that they may uot recover, is the awful result of the accident. The cause of the disaster is still  involved in mystery, and the officials  of the road arc investigating in order  to place the blame. The man in the  bign.al tower at Exeter station claims  to" have had the signals properly dis  played. In a statement today General  Superintendent Seignrd, of the Reading railroad, said that the prime causa  of the accident was a block of freight  cars on the track, which were taking a  siding at Birdsboro, and which compelled the express to stop at J^xeter.  It is not known ns vet whether a signal man was sent back to notify the  special or second section.  A strange feature of the disaster was  the fact that there was but one woman  killed, and only one injured. Norris-  town is in mourning, as the greatest  number of the dead and injured were  residents of that place.  The Beatrice group in the Lardeau  has improved its showing to 30 inches  of ore.  The Home Rum, after tunnelling/  150 teet, ore from 10 to 12 feet had been  found.  J. A. Foley will try his luck again  with leased properties, the Eagle and  Hard Nut.  Wm. Tornlinson will buy up eopper  prospects in the Boundary and Okana-  gan districts.  A Crown grant is being applied for  by the Northwest Mining Syndicate  for the Bosun group of three claims.  J. C. Eaton is once more in the Slocan looking after properties he has  here, among which is the Madison.  W. H. Sandiford inspected the Mollie,  Hughes, a property on whieh  he and  his company let go after sinking a lot  of money.  The True Blue mine  near Kaslo is  likely to have a legal fight   on hand.  The Hall mines have a bond on it and '  will neither work the mine nor give  up the bond.  Mr. McKenzie, of Toronto, is putting  considerable money into the Gold Hill  Exploration & Development Co., who  are large holders of Lardo-Duncan  properties.  The Star concentrator' after running  a few days last week had to close down  again owing to scarcity of water. The  rise being only temporary, two weather  still continuing in the grasp of winter.  British inquiries for shares in the  Queen Bess Propriety Company aro becoming more frequent, due to satisfactory reports to the mine and by the  recent payment of an interim dividend  of six pence per share. There is little  doubt but that the Queen Bess will be- ������  come one of the big oroperties of the  camp. In thf> No. 1 level there is four  feet of ore. while .No. 5 has mineral for  close to 2C0 feet, in places as wide as  three feet, with every promise of permanency with depth.  ���������TW"���������  Send in Your Orders.  Thirty Days'  Notice Given.  The British Columbia Gazette of the  11th inst. contains formal notice of the  enforcement of the eight-hour law as  follows : Mine owners' agents, managers of mines and lessees are notified  that thirty days from date the inspector of mines will enforce Section  4 of'the Metalliferous Mines InsDec-  tion Act, which reads as follows : (13)  No person shall be employed underground in any metalliferous mine for  more than eight hours in any twenty-  four hours. ',''-'���������������������������'  Mine and prospect holders and business people, generally, who want to  help advertise the dlocan District  should send in their orders to The Review office, at once, for the number of  copies of tho pamphlet which Mr.  Clifle is publishing on tho resources of  the District. The pamphlet will not  be a picture book to please children,  as some of the proposed publications  are designed to be, though it will have  numerous cuts of mining operations;  but it will be choke full ot hard facts  and statistics of mining capabilities of  the country. The design is to place  the possibilities and capabilities of  the District in a comprehensive and  presentable shape to the monied man  who is prepared to invest in mining  operations.

Sam   Simpson  placed th'e sap buck-  eta  against  the trees, adjusting  them  carefully   so  that  none ��������� of  the sweet  liquid mighL bo lost when the morning   sua  set  it  running.    Everything  in his .sugar camp was prepared for the  next day's work, but though tired and  hungry Sam did not go home at once.  He leaned his arias upon the top rail  of the fence and gazed solemnly down  upon  the  little house in  the clearing  below him.   The sun was sotting, leaving long red slreaks in the sky against  which   tho   boles  of    the    trees  stood  straight and black.   The red faded into  pink and pale green and finally deepened again into the blue above, when- n  little pale silver crescent hung among  tho   dark   tree-tops.   Th'e  white   snow  patches  gleamed from  the woods,  the  air was clear and still and laden with  the   sweet spring    scents of  the  forest.  But Sam was not lingering to admire the beauty of the'evening. He  looked long at the trim little house,  wit** its cheerful column of smoke  mounting straight into the air. A  light' shone from the window, and the  shadow which ever and anon flitted  betwoen it and the outer darkness was  the loadstar which' attracted Sam's* intense gaze and quickened his sluggish  pulses with tho firo of an all-consuming love.  It was none other than that of Miss  Sarah Ellen  Robinson,  to the possession  of whose fair hand Sam had silently  aspired for nigh' on to a decade.  Inwardly  and silently, indeed, for although   tho   love-lorn   swain  had   languished and sighud for so many hopeless  years,  he had never once during  that  lapse of time been able to bring  his  courage  up  to  the sticking  point.  Albeit, on this particular evening, ho  had   unalterably  determined  upon  his  course   of  action.    Ho  roused  himself  from his lounging attitudo, pulled himself togethor, carefully adjusted his red  and yellftw cravat and started for tho  smart   little  gateway  with   the fixed  intention to " do or die."  Having arrived there ho hung with  one leg over, in an agony of indecision.  The position illustrated well Sam's  mental attitudo during his ten years'  silent adoration of Miss Sarah Ellen  Robinson. The result was the same  this night as usual. Sam climbed down  upon the losing side and plodded wearily homeward ovor tho crunching  patches of snow, equally divided between a feeling of despair ovor his unsuccessful suit and a sense of rolief  at having escaped Miss Sarah Ellen's  wrath.  So poor Sam's thoughts did not turn  lightly to thoughts of love in thi3  springtime when he reflected that  though both he and his lady love were  upon the shady side of thirty he had  so far not succooded in even making  her awaro of his adoration.  But there was ono bright spot in the  darkness. Sam had resolved lo make  up by stratagem, what ho lacked in  moral courage, and had that very day  hit upon a brilliant plan for storming tho enemy's forces. Belioving that  position is half tho battlo, he had  moved his sugar camp from the hollow  iu the woods and hung his big kettle  righi upon the edge of tho maple  grovo which bordered Miss Strati Ellon's back yard. This bold strode would  at least bring tho besieged into sight,  for Miss Robinson was certain to come  out and complain of tho smoke, and  there was some hope to bu gained from  a  parley.  Fortune fuvurod tho scheme beyond  is wildest dreams, for whuu Sam came  over tho brow of tho hill the next  morning, and peeped through the trues,  there was Miss Saruh Ellon herself,  stirring a pot of boiling lyo just on  the other side of the fence. Sana's  courage almost failud him ut the sight,  had a wild idea of packing up his  Ellen started back for an instant, then  gave the offering a contemptuous  tick and resumed her work'. Sam went  back to his boiling in despair, but  when next ho looted through the  bushes his spirits rose higher tlian the  tallest pine tree, Tho sugar had disappeared.  That   first  gift  was   the forerunner  of many such missiles ; an'd never did  Cupid's arrows fly with surer purpose.  Tho  amount  of  sweetness  that    shot  over that fence would have sugared a  much mure acid disposition than Miss  Sarah Ellon's.   But the ambitious lover was not content with sending maple  sugar   and  hunks  of sticky  taffy.  He  ransacked the barn that night, and the  next  morning  with  the  earliest sunbeams, came apples, butter-nuts, carefully cracked, and even a small package  of  conversation  lozenges. And at  last, briil.aut idea I among love's winged   messengers   he  sent  a   white chip  ingenuously carved in  tho shape of a  heart,   upon  which were inscribed the  words:  ''Can  1 came  and  see  you?"  Sam, allowed   tho  pot   to    noil  over  in   his   perturbation    over   this    bold  stroke,  and the bombardment of Miss  Sarah Ellen's affections ceased for that  day.  Tho next morning he received his  reward, for hanging from the cedars at  the edge of the wood was a strip of  birch bark ��������� upon which was written,  the message, laconic, but redolent of  meaning:���������  " Not much."  Somehow (his discouraging opistle  failed to dampen Sam's ardor. Ho was  wise enough to read between the words,  so ovor tho fence went another message :  " Why ?"  And ' 'Because I" was telegraphed  back, upon a coquettish looking little  chip, which made Sam squirm with delight.  This unique correspondence was carried on for the whole day when almost  at sunset the last chip informed him  that the soap was all made. Sam took  the hint with reverent joy, and  now no longer in fear, but still trembling ho crossed his Rubicon.  Tho clear twilight of a frosty spring  evening was descending, tho woods  looked dark and sombre against, t ho  clear sky. Tho smoke from the dying  fires ascended lazily. Miss Sarah Ellen  was .cutting the soap into cubes with  elaborate care. Sam poked the fire for  a few moments in silence and then ventured :  " Sarah Ellen, my 'mother uster say  soap an' sugar was a splendid draw-  in' mixture."  And  Miss Sarah' Ellen said she be  lieved it was.  GREATEST THINGS IN THE WORLD.  ���������Some Information About Ihe Largest Itulia-  iiiK.s, .llouumciits. Canals, etc., etc  The largest Insect known" to entomologists is a Central American moth,  called tho Erebus strix, which expands  its wings from 11 to 18 inches.  The longest word in the English  language is "Proantllransubslanlia-  tionist," a jointed word of 28 letters.  "Transubstantiationableness" is tho  next longest.   ,  Tho largest cask in tho world is the  Blalner cask of Nuremberg, Germany.  It is 105. feet in diameter and 51 feet  deep, and its completion a few years  ago was celebrated by a ball, at which  over 500 persons were on the floor of  the cask.  Tho longest wail in the world is the  famous stone defense made by the  Chinese against the Tartars about 2C0  B.JO. It is 20 feet high, 27 feet thick  at the base, and stretches for 1,280  miles ovor hills, valleys and rivers.  ' The greatest bell in the world, is Ln  an edifice before the great temple of  Buddha, at Tokyo.

Letters  from a missionary who has  just travelled across North Anhui from  Honan,  selling  Bibles for  th'e  British  and  Foreign  Bible  Society,  give  gra-  [ phie  pictures  of  the  terror  and  distress caused by th'e rebellion  in that  province.    The missionary started   out  with' a colporteur and two young Chinese  wheeling  barrows.      For several  days th'ey simply heard rumors of the  approach' of the rebels, who were killing, plundering and burning. Finally,  after four days' travel, they neared a  large city toward which crowds of fugitives   from   the   surrounding  country  wore  pouring  by  every  road.   At  all  the small villages rusty old guns were  being furbished up and spears brought  oul  for use.   Tho city was reported to  be  full,   but  thousands were  pressing  about   the  gates  eager  to   secure   the  shelter   of  the walks.  Tho missionary was unable to gain  entrance to the gales because of the  crowd, which would give way only for  an official. Many of these refugees  h'ad come some distance, and all were  carrying their household belongings  in carts or in wheelbarrows. Little  children were crying from hunger and  exposure.  On reaching Suchon, in Kiangsu, it  was found that the soldiers .had, defeated ihe marauders, killing a large  number.

There are court historians in China,  as there are in other countries, but  there is one striking difference, and  it lies in the fact that the work of  th'e Chinese court historians does not  see tho light mntil the reigning dy-  asty, comes  to  an and.  ,In this way these Celestial historians  have an opportunity to describe most  truthfully the virtues and vices of the  various rulers'and tho real significance  of th'o events ^yhich "take place during their regime. They can .write  what thoy please without fear of censure, for, they know that their work  will not be published as long as the  reigning  dynasty  lasts.  This has been the rule for more than  two thousand years, tho first court  historians having beon appointed by  the imperial house of Han, which reigned from 206 B.C. until 25 A. D.   '  Tho duty of these historians is to  write a'plain account of all th'e events  that occur during their tenure of office. At regular intervals -their completed work is taken from them and  is locked up in an iron safe or vault.  There it remains until the first member of a new dynasty ascends the  th'rone. '  It is then given with all the other  histories to the vault of the court historian who is then living, and from  tthfe mass of documents he is expected  to prepare a truthful history of the  dynasty which has just expired. The  present dynasty has been reigning  since 1G44, and consequently no  court history has ,beon published  sinoe   that  date.  AUSTRIAN WOMEN BARBERS.  Women barbers are  quite the rule  ln    Austria,    and Austrians take   no  chances with their barbers. They must  be experts, and the Barbers' and Wig-  1 makers' Union of Vienna sees to it  ��������� they are. Provision is also made . in  their code for women barbers who de-  Blre to carry on the business of their  husbands in case of the latter's death  or illness. In order to do this'the.wife  must have been enrolled in the union  as an apprentice for three years.   Ap-  - prentices must appear in Vienna in  the presence of judges of the union  and show their skill before they are  allowed to open shops of their own. A  properly'certified barber must have a  knowledge of and pass an examination  - in shaving, hair cutting, hair curling  and wigmaking. - Poor persons and  other* who are frugal serve as subjects  for experiment. Not only must the  Austrian barber be well versed in the  practical side of the subject, but questions are asked relating to the keeping  clear, of razors, combs and brushes;  also the elementary rules of antiseptics are thoroughly gone into.  Farmers cannot . any longer close  their eyes to the fact that something  more than ordinary farm-yard man-  ores is necessary to the production of  paying crops. The phosphate is absolutely neoessary and there is now no  room to doubt that large quantities  of good manure are absolutely wasted  for the want of phosphate to balanoe  the food for the plants. I have had  much experience in phosphating lands  and I have examined many phosphated  erops and I am. convinced'that double  and treble crops of all kinds of produce may be obtained by the use of a  proper phosphate such as the Thomas-  Fhosphate, made by the Alberts. I  have seen old lands brought up to a  wonderful condition of fertility by its  aid.���������Stroohner, in-Farm Topics.

"The law is an infringement of private rights and'liberties, a treacherous  attack upon those who have in good  faith invested money in mines,'passed  by politicians ignorant or reckless of  tho principles upon which laws are  made, at the dictation of the pestifer-  " ous labor agitator and the idle walkinsr  delegate." ' ��������� *"  In dealing with the  eight-hour law  to be enforced on  tbe   10th of June,  the  Kasls Kootenaian   gets   off   the  .   foregoing.   There is no longer any disputing the fact that the law was asked  . for by miners   at Rossland   and elsewhere in the province, and the Koo-  tenaian considers   them  "pestiferous  labor agitators" for so doing.   Whether  or not they will take kindly to the new  name,   it remains  for the   future  to  show.     All   sensible,   liberal-minded  people must admit that if tho miners  felt  that such a law  would be of ser  vice to them, they were perfectly within their proper sphere in asking for it.  Let an   ordinary citizen   draw up   a  chattel mortgage for his neighbor, and  charge for it; and no matter how well  it may be done,  in fact the better the  deed the graver the offence  as there is  less chance for litigation   under it in  the future, and he is at once, pounced  upon  by the law society.     Let that  man  give   a neighbor's sick horse a  dose of medicine, and   even though it  cures the animal, he is liable to punishment  under  the   Veterinary Act.  The    merchants   again,     hive   their  Boards of Trade, Insolvency laws, etc.,  to hep tliem  in  their business;   but  theuiiner is called a '-pestiferous labor  Every woman wears  crown  who   is  the  mother of a  healthy  baby.    The mother of  puny,   sickly,   pee-  ������li   baby bears   a  cross.     It   rests  with  every woman   to   de-  dc for herself which  kind of a mother she  will be.  The woman who  takes the right  care of herself  during- the months  preceding   ma-  improve and supercede old contrivances. The inventive ' manufacturer  will say, "If I am allowed to make but  10 per cent, on my capital, and' I enn'  make it with present contrivances.  Where is the use in my employing  such devices as wilL enable me to  make 20 per cent., when not I, but the  state or the public "will reap the  benefits? It will at a glance be seen  that such a law would be injudicious,  AMD OTHER INVESTMENTS.  *%������^  content in the as  surance  that  her  baby will   be  a  strong,     healthy,  happy one.    The  woman who  suffers   from   disor-  "|ders  of the   distinctly    feminine  organism during this critical period, and  fails to resort to the right remedy, is pretty  sure to have a puny, peevish, sickly baby,  born into the world with the seeds of weakness and disease already implanted in its  little   body.     Dr.  Pierce's   Favorite   Prescription is the  best of  all medicines for  piospective mothers.     It imparts  health  strength, vigor, and  elasticity to the deli  cate and  impoitant oigans that bear the  brunt of  motherhood.     It prepares a wo  man for the time of trial and danger.     It  strengthens and invigorates, and insures the  perfect well-being and  absolute health of  both mother and child.    It does away with  the squcamislmess of the interesting period.     It makes suie an ample supply of  nourishment for the little new-comer.    It  transforms weak, sickly, nervous and despondent   invalids   into   healthy,   happy  wives and mothers.

Go into  Eaton's establishment in Toronto, and  ask him why it is he pays such   low  wages to workmen,   workwomen   and  clerks, and his answer will be, "to produce the low-priced article which the  public, strikers and all, arc looking for.  Let the consumers cor sent to pay us  higher |.rices for wbat  they buy,  and  we can at once afford,to raise wages of  all our employes.'   This,  we   believe,  is the full solution of, all the trouble���������  let the' demand  for cheaper products  cease, and wages will at once inci ease.  The manufacturer,, the merchant and  the producer in general must make a  certain amount of money on their investments, and if they cannot make it  by paying certain wages he will make  it by grinding down until they do.

THE LABOR QUESTION.  interest  With    the   government,    however  things   are   different,   and   whatever  there is pestiferous about the law they,  and they alone,   are responsible  for!  The representatives   and government  are elected by the people to legislate,  pot alone   for the miners,   the mine  ���������owners, tho merchants  or the farmers,  :but for all combined.   Whenever they  ���������can pass  an act of service to any one  ���������class that is not injurious to any other  ���������class,thcy are perfectly justified in passing it;  but whenever an act projected  in the interest of  any class   clashes  with that of another, wisdom and justice must prevail.  Very lew will object to a law diminishing the hours of labor in the abstract, by statutory enactment, as the  tendency is, the world over, to reduce  the hours of labor. Where, again, the  health, life and limb of the subject arc  in danger, the government are perfectly justified in stepping in, in the interest of humanity.  If a competent inspector finds a certain mine,   or tunnel therein, unsafe  for a miner altogether,   or for  more  than four, six or eight hours at a time,  the government   would   be   perfectly  justified in limiting the hours of labor  therein accordingly.    But   there  are  mines   and mines   in   the   Kootenay  country.   Some of them are perfectly  dry, well ventilated and just as healthy  for an operative as the surface of the  ground,   but by the law they are all  regulated alike.   The very moment a  minhr is two feet under ground he is  debaired   from   working   more   than  eight   hours,  though   he  may  work  .   twenty-four hours on\he suiface in a  teeming raia.    The latter by law  is  considered the healthier position.  The  farmer may,work out in the field and  it raining, but the niiner cannot work  in a tunnel when he is perfectly dry  and healthy, without subjecting himself and his employer to a penalty.  This is the iniquitous, and we might  add, pestiferous feature of the law.  j We understand the mine owners are  going to test the validity of the law in  the courts, and they are doing but  simple justice to the country in doing  so. Let it be shown to a court with  competent jurisdiction that two men,  an employer and an employee, are debarred by the Act from making a contract as to duration of service, where c .. o "~ ��������� ~:���������"T  neither life, limb nor health is imper-������I thinness arid  paleness for  This matter is again disturbing our  industrial-interests to their very foundation���������strikes are the order of   the  day wherever labor is employed. Nor is  it confined to classes as the masses are  involved.   Carpenters, miners, masons,  tailors, etc.,  etc.,   are everywhere   on  strike���������all demanding   higher wages.  There is no disputing the fact that the  tendency is to grind down labor everywhere ;   but it is not, as many of the  industrial    communities   allege,     to  build up  monopolies everywhere, for  there is no denying tho fact that even  with  the reduted wages many manufacturing concerns are not making as  much  money as they  used   to make  when  paying higher wages.   It is the  desire of the entire public, strikers included, to make more money by-buying cheaper products that is responsible for it all.   Many theories i.re advanced to remedy the evil; but, whilo  some of them are plausible, until the  human greed in rich and poor alike is  removed,  the desired cure cannot be  successfully obtained.   Some say the  proper course is the passing of a law  that will prevent producers from earning more than a certain percentage on  actual   capital   invested;   but   adopt  bhc'u   a   curtailing measure   and you  place an embargo on genius and invention.   Cut off all chance of prospective  profits and you destroy all incentive  for discovery and  new inventions ' to  Lost flesh lately?  Does your brain tire?

It is nothing new;  just the same remedy that  has been curing these" cases  necessity, and so far nothing is done  in either matter.    The trustees have  been buying fuel and other requisites,  and either paying for them out of their  own   pockets or  forcing'   the,dealers"  to go' without their   money.     They  even cannot get from the government  a dollar to pay for sweeping the school  room,  and' the   teachers or   scholars  have to do it or allow the place to go  in���������dirt.   -This .is not   creditable   to  either the Legislature or the government.      So   far the government has  taken to itself the sole power to handle  school matters,' and this is the way it  is done.   If the government cannot or  will not raise money to pay for the  school property here; and if they cannot or will hot advance money to meet  the incidental expenses of the school,  why in the name of common sense do  they not so amend the law as to  enable the trustees to raise the necessary  money themselves by the taxation of  the property in the district, as is  the  case in other provinces.   The government  will  persist  in   collecting  all  realty taxes in unorganized parts  and  personal property   even   within   city  limits, and still enough property real  and personal goes  wholly untaxed in  the country each  year to meet these  demands many  times oyer.    This  is  the condition- df things in this province of  enlightenment   and advancement.  The trustees in Sandon feel that this  thing must riot run this way any  longer, and they have decided on  getting up a concert and trusting to  the generosity of'the people to do what  the government, by its own legislation,  is pledged to do.

SCOTT & EOWNE, Chemists Toronto, i  In connection with the eight-hour  law, there is no representative of the  province today aa.much besmirched as  the Hon. J. Fred Hume.   He told delegations from the mine owners he was  personally opposed to   the law while  Mr. Wilkes, of Bessie nd,   says it was  Mr. Hume whointroduced the amendment in the House,' and that under a  pledge previously made to the miners  that he and his. colleagues���������the rest of  the government���������favored it.   If this is  not falsifying the record after ah effort  to purchase his way into the House,  it is hard  to say what is.   Mr. Hume  had a perfect right to get the pledge of  his colleagues in Bupport of the'measures, if he thought it wise and was  able to do so, but in the face of such  an attitude he was simply intentionally deceiving, by low political trickery,   when   he told mine owner delegates he himself was opposed  to-the  measute.     The   present   government  throughout is making a questionable  record for itself very rapidly.  DEE WRY .& TWIGG,  Dominion and Provincial Land Surveyors.  Civil and Mining Enelneors.

The following is Mrs. Keirsteacfs  letter:��������� .  "With gratitude I can testify to the  wonderful curative powers of Burdock  Blood Bitters. Eight years ago our little  ion, Freddy, was afflicted with salt rheum  and was in a dreadful condition. His legs,  from the soles of his feet to his body, were  entirely raw, and ran a bloody .water,  which appeared to burn and itch until he  was often in great agony.  " After trying several remedies, we resolved to give B.B.B. a trial.  "You can imagine with what delight  and gratitude we saw our boy entirely  cured after using one bottle and part of  I lie second. We jrave him the remainder  of the,second bottle, and from that time  till tbe present he has never had a sign of  salt rheum or a sick day.

The  poisonous Urie Acid which it is their  duty to filter out of the blood, is carried  into the system and produces Rheumatism, Headaches, Backaches and hundreds of ills and ailments.

After  a little,  a  narrow space was left free about  the  group, and they breathed more easily,  and leaned forward with pale, expectant faces.  Of tho five hundred Indians fully  three hundred crowded into the lodge,  the rest massing themselves al the  entrance and-around the.sLdes, where-  ever they could see. In the center of  the lodge, about the'pole, was left an  open circular space, around which the  chiefs and medicine-men ranged themselves. Back of- these were massed  tho young Indians and squaws."  Suddenly there was a lull. The slender sticks fell from the hands of the  Indian with the tom-tom, the beating  feet were still, and there was a moment of almost perfeel silence. Then  from the group of medicinemen one  rose up, and advancing to tho centre  of tho lodge, raised his eyes to the  blaze of light and addressed an invo-'  cation to the sun. As he spoke, lhe  muscles of his face twitched, his lips  became ashy, and, his eyes wavered'in  their gaze. The'words seemed to fall  involuntarily from his lips. Suddenly  he flung up his hands toward lhe  sky, and reeling, fell backward among  the other medicine-rnen, who, wrapped Ln a sort of trance, look very little notice of him.

The  roof, which slanted upward, was formed  in much the same way, the cross-poles  all converging at the centre and  fastened lo the tall central lodge-pole.  The boughs which were strewn thick  over the roof stopped at about four  feet from the top of the lodge, leaving  a circular open space through which  the sun beat fiercely.  Doyle halted the horses on the edge  of the clear space in front of this  lodge and waited for orders.

It's all very well if they come and ask  you to do it, buit I wouldn't photograph  them    en masse  and    when  they  are  wrought  up at a dance, unless I was  especially requested' to do so."  "Where    shall we leave    the  traps,  ' Eviston?"  demanded Carlington,  coming- up.  '.   Captain    Eviston looked    about him  quickly.  ''Doyle will put; them in that grove,"  he . said, indicating a small alley of  trees near'the entrance to the lodgo.  "But," he added; turning to the orderly, "you will not stay with them,  but 'come with us." He beckoned to  an Indian leaning against a little buck-  Stirling chuckled noiselessly.  "Not more than five hundred, I  should say, Miss Kenwood. However  five hundred Indians are equal lo five  thousand ordinary men when it comes  to tomahawking and scalping you  know,"  he  concluded  cheerfully.  Mrs. Stirling put her hand over her  husband's   mouth.  "Don't jest about such horrid things,  please," she said.  There   was  another  long   wait,   and  the sun beat down more' fLercely than  ever,   and   the  general  murmur  from  tho  groups of Indians  scattered over  the open space of ground grew louder  and   more   excited,   and   the  sound  of  cayuses plunging and galloping about  came    nearer    and fiercer.   They had  been  wailing fully   three  quarters  of  an   hour  when   suddenly* the  Indians  nearest the lodge fell back and seemed  to shift  themselves  into  kaleidoscopic  figures of brilliant hues, and there rose  a soft patter of  moccasined feet that  beat trine restlessly to the quick throbs  of a tom-tom borne by an Indian who  camo slowly down a hill a little to the  right.   He was dressed most gorgeously in painted buckskin shaps and crimson-flannel    shirt,     over  which, were  hung innumerable relics���������long plaits of  hair beaded at the top and fitted into  little -leather sockets,  the claw  of an  eagle,  and, a   necklace of vivid blue-  glass beads.   On his head was a beautiful   coronet   of   many-colored   porcupine quills that rippled in the hot air,,  and from the centre of which rose an  engel's   feather   tipped    with    narrow  scarlet ribbon. Across his forehead extended a broad  yellow band of  paint.  A knee-rattle dangled against hisside  and jingled as'he stepped lightly, raising  each' foot very high   and bending  the knee  as a horse  does  in parking.  Behind him streamed a throng of painted, fantastically dressed Indians. Suddenly   the Indians nearest; the  leader  burst into a wild, h'igh song that hung  quiveiring   and   shrill   on   the   hot   air  and  then   dropped  suddenly  to   alow  key.   only   to   break   forth'   terrifically  again on tbe high note.  With the beginning of th'e song a sort of agitation  passed   through   the  mass  of  Indians,  and   every  mocassined  foot  was   raised   and   brought   down  with   a double  stamp upon the hot, dry grass, which  crackled and twisted under the blows.  As   the  heaving,    flashing , procession  neared   the   lodge,   a    dozen'medicinemen  emerged from thie group nearest  SCENT  BALLS  AND POMANDEKS.  Tho modern woman wears amLng the  various jingling bits of silver or,silver  gilt upon the chatelaine, an ornate little   box    containing    minute    foreign  seeds" which preserve their refreshing'  and   delightful  odor  for  a long  time,  but there can not be claimed that these  scent  boxes are exactly novel, except  in poinl of size, as women have always  numbered  among  their  trifles of luxury   some    receptacle  of  exhilarating  porfume.    Among the minor objects of  personal  use mentioned in  the inventory of Margaret de Bohun, daughter  of Humphrey do Bohun, Earl of Hereford and Essex, is a " poiime de aum-  bre," or scent ball, in the composition  of   which   ambergris  probably   formed  a-principal ingredient.   Wo here learn  that   a nutmeg  was  occasionally  used  for the like purpose.   It was set in silver,  decorated with stones and pearls  and was, evidently, an object rare and  highly prized.   Among the valuable effects of Henry V.. according1 lo an inventory taken in 1423, are enumerated  a musk bal. of gold weighing 11 ounces  and another of silver gill.    At a later  period   the   pomander  was   very  commonly worn as the pendant of a lady's  girdle.   A   recipe  for  compounding  it  may   be  found  in  " The    Treasury  o-  Commodius   Conceits,"   1580.  The orange appears to have been used  as a pomander soon after its introduction into England. Cavendish describes' Cardinal Wolsey entering a  crowded chamber "holding in his hand  a very fair orange," whereof the meat,  or substance within, was taken out,  and filled t again with the parr, of a  sponge wherein was vinegar and other confections ��������� against the pestilent  airs; the which he most commonly  smelt unto, passing among tho press,  or else he was pestered with many  suitors." i  Sir Thomas Gresham, in his celebrated portrait by Sir Anlonio More, hold3  in his left hand a small object resembling an orange, but which is a pomander.  This sometimes consisted of a dried  Seville orange, stuffed with cloves and  .other apices, and was esteemed a fashionable preventive against infection. It  frequently occurs in old portraits, either, suspended to the girdle or held in  the hand.  In the eighteenth century the signification of this object became so far  forgotten that instead of the pomanders, reai oranges were introduced into portraits, a. practice satirized by  Goldsmith in his " yicar of Wakefield."  When .the pomander was made of silver it was perforated with holes to let  out the scent, hence .the origin of the  vinaigrette of to-day.  The earliest mention of coral is that  which occurs in the'inventory of. AH-  nore do Bohun. namely, the paternoster of coral. With gilded gaudier, the  larger, beads, and the three branches  of coral which hs also possessed. The  above use of. coral explains its being  worn in later times, as an amulet or  defence   against  infection. '  mil.ionairedom Queen Victoria is not  veiy wealthy. Her fortune is of course  unknown. It is seldom estimated at  loss than ������25,CO0,0C0. It has beon placed as high as $.73,000,000, but the' former figure is undoubtedly the more  nearly correct. ,  l?or, while the Queen is undoubtedly  thiuty, she is also generous. A family  like hers makes a constant demand  upon her for money.

Taking Queen Victoria's fortuno at  the more moderate estimate and remembering that in England 3 per cent,  is a pretty good return upon invested  money, Queen Victoria's private income may bo some ������750,000 a year; or,  with the unappropriated ������300,000 of the  civil list, a little over ������1,000,000 a year.

Women barbers are quite the rule  in. Austria, and Austrians take no  chances with their barbers. They must  be experts, arid the Barbers' and Wig-  makers' Union of Vienna sees to it  they axe. Provision is also made . in  their code for women barbers .who, desire to carry on the ,' business of their"  husbands in case of the latter's death  or illness. In order to do. this the wifo  must have been enrolled in the union  as an apprentice for three years. Apprentices must appear in Vienna in  the presence o������ judges of the union  and show'their skill beforeythey aie  allowed to open shop's of their own. A  properly certified barber must have a  knowledge of arid pass an exainination  in shaving, hair cutting, hair curling  and wigmaking. Poor persons and  othero who are frugal serve as subjects  for experiment Not only must the  Austrian barber be well versed in the  practical side of tho subject, but questions are asked relating to tho keeping  clear, of lazors, combs and brushes,  also tho elementary rules of antiseptics are  thoroughly  gono into.

The soldiers' of    the   Kaiser    do not  pass     their    time    merely    in     going  through   the manual or marching and  counter-marching.     Gymnasium   practice is one of   the requirements of the  service, as' well    as    special    military  practice in scaling walls, &o.     To test  the soldier's   agi-lity    and   strength a  board wall sixteen and    a   half    feet  high is built,_with-a platform' on    top  of it.   How can  a man six    feet    tall  climb a wall'without  a single projection   to catch hold of? Alone it would  be impossible, but with his comrades to  assist it becomes possible, - though    by  no means easy.      Two of   the soldiers,  stoop down   and    place    their clasped  hands under the feet of one of    their  oomrades, who stands erect.     Then, as  he places his hands on    the    wall    to.  steady himseli    lh������   stooping   soldiers  straighten up, raising* him as   far    as  they -.cariV'-'.       ��������� '  The soldier is; not yet able' to reach  the top, o������ the wall and pull himself '  up. A comrade who is on top stretches himself out on the roof, lying down  at full length, and extends his hands  to the soldier below. Then by main  strength and considerable scrambling  the man is pulled up until he can catch  hold of  the  top and help himself up.  Officers stand by with' bayonets  guarded by little bags of, chamois, so  that no one can be ijierced) by a prod,  and hurry the practising privates.  Spaed is -a necessary part of the evolution, for, an. enemy is not going to ;  stand idly by while the Germans climb  thiir ramparts, and .the man who ,  scrambles up fastest is proclaimed vic-  toi in this test of agility It is no easy  matter, vith hea^y knapsack on yous  b^ck and clothed in marching garni nts, to goti up a stuight wall like  this.  *  tl  M  'ft  ��������� is  it  ���������if  V*' -.  ���������$���������  REASONS.

The housewives who always use  sweet milk and brtking powder in articles whore such ingredients or their  equivalents are called for, little guess  ,tho superior results to be had from  buttermilk and soda, If sour milk is  used, it must bo freshly soured, not  obtained from the use of sour milk or  stale; hence, tho bost time to use it is  in the summer-time. Buttermilk is  preferablo all the year round. Bis-  ���������cuits, griddle-cakes, waffles, corn-  breads, muffins, gems, ginger-broads,  qookies, etc, are all of them more tender, delicate, and probably more  wholesome, since the majority of  baking-powders are adulterated, if  they are- made of buttermilk and  soda. A general rule is one level  teaspoonf \ of soda to one pint of  buttermilk   or   freshly   soured   milk.  ,,The soda must be first pulverized by  rubbing with a knife on the table or  bread-board, then added to the flour,  to be sifted with it. ^It is oven well to  "sift the flour, soda "and salt together  two or three"limos to insure   an even  , blending. In a very short time one  learns to guage the soda exactly to  tho   acidity   of  the milk  to  be   used.  " Baking-powder cannot give tho best  results in the class of articles enumerated above.  It requires a little skill or experience to use soda with nicety, but it is  worth while to acquire such skill ;"in-  deed, there is scarcely an item in  culinary processes which better repays one for intelligent experimenting. The bicarbonate of soda used to-^  dayrf is a very different artiole from  the carbonate of soda or saleratus  with which careless cooks made spotted biscuits in our grandmothers'  time. Used with an acid, as buttermilk, it is as scientifically "wholesome , as any article employed as an  adjunct to oookery. In many instances baking-powder oannot give as  good results as soda.  It is scarcely possible to give an absolutely exact rule of measurement  for soda, as brands differ somewhat  in strength, and' milk' varies in degrees of acidity. But a general rule  is one level toaspoonful of soda to  one_ pint of sour milk. Be sure to pulverize the soda before measuring.  of odds and ends to become a nurture  place for system undermining germs.  In a 'paper read before a club tho other  day, what was called a "lady's cellar"  was dcscribe'd. This hid a cemented  floor swept twice a week, was airy,  well lighted, treated twice a year to  a heavy coat of whitewash to which a  little/ carbolic acid ' had been added,  and had nothing standing in the corners to defy quick inspection. All  boxes and trunks in this cellar stood  upon slats that the air could circulate  beneath them. Only one criticism suggested itself to a listener and that  was' of tho rope matting with which  the stairs leading to the cellar were  carpeted. Better than this dust holding matting would have been the bare  wooden step, which is so easily kept  cloan.  A LOAF OF FRUIT CAKE.  A  fruit  cake should  be made some  time .before it is wanted,    then time  ���������,will take a hand at blending tho spicy  flavors.    To make a really good fruit  ) cake demands the leisure of two days.  Ou tho first day seed the raisins, slice  the citron, brown the flour and measure  the spices.   On    the second  day,  mix and bake the fragrant compound.  Be very careful to beat the eggs thoroughly,  whites and yolks    separately.  The  oven  must  be    well    considered.  Fruit iyike should-  be put in a slow  oven, as it requires long baking-to induce a richness of flavor.     Keep the  heat as regular as possible, and do not  open  the ��������� oven door for    at  least 10  minutes after it has been put in. When  opening tho oven,  bo careful, that no  cold draught of air from an open window or door strikes it.   Do not slam  the oven door shut or jar the pan by  moving    it    unnecessarily.

An excellent box in which the seeds  for early flowers can be sown is about  18 inches long, 15 inches wide and  three and one half inches deep. This  box can be placed in the window beside ,the cutting box. A good soil for  the seed box is made of three-fourths  soddy loam and one-fourth sand; this  mixture gives a soil that drains well  and does not run together after it has  been watered a few times.  In this box can be sown pansy,  verbena, petunia, snapdragon, sweet  alyssum, salvia splendens, or seeds of  any other similar plants that will  stand transplanting and are desired  for early blooming. Enough plants  can bo grown in a box of this size  to supply .a good sized flower garden.  i       YE ADVERTISING CLERK.

Men and women gradually learned to be ashamed for childlike credulity, until that which had  caused terror began to excite ridicule,  when superstitions were again spread  and kept living, for the amusement of  the successors of those who<had outgrown them.  In all lands birds have, at some time,  been regarded as God's messengers-  creatures conveying warnings by their  appearances and departures, and gifted  with prophetio instinots.  No doubt simple hearts were first  touched by the thought that the bird  mounts nearer to heaven than man can  do bodily. , It was then easy for minds  to conceive the idea that heaven's secrets must be known to birds.   '  According to Scandinavian tradition,  the swallow, hovered, over the cross of  our Lord, crying "Svala, svala ������ console, console, Hence comes its namo,  "svalow," the bird of consolation. We  still tell our neighbors that it is  "lucky" for swallows -to build about-  their houses. The * cross-bill circled  also about the dying Saviour, so legen-  dry lore' tells us, prior to which act  .>f reverence its beak was straight as  that of other birds; while the robin  gained its red broast through being  sprinkled' by the blood of Christ. A  red-breast always sings from crossed  branches, if he can, say Lancashire  folk.  The Romans believed that the swallow was sacred to' tho peuates or  household gods, and, therefore, to injure one would bo to bring down a  judgment upon the home. To-day  there are many persons, sailors especially, who are firmly of opinion that  "it is unlucky  to kill a swallow."  '  ln Scotland it is still common to hear  the expression, "faithful as a swallow," and when a person is lazily sparing of exertion the proverb, "The snail  is as sure at its rest as a swallow."  This signifies "the crawler reaches the  rest of death as soon as the swift flyer."  To dream of these harbingers of summer was considered a very favorable  omen, denoting success in trade- to the  dreamer, or to a lover a speedy marriage with the object of his affections.  The swan was long used as an illustration of kingly or royal grace. It was  also the emblem of chivalry, adorning  the shields of knights, when the taunt  of being "false to the swan" amounted  to a deadly injury. Anno of Cloves,  who possessed a lily-like skin, and was  descended from the Knight of the  Swan, was known to courts as "The  White -Swan ;" the memory of which  compliment is recorded upon many  public house signs.  "The swan's a proud bird, yet he  keeps his head bent;" "Through /looking backwards tho swan dies sweetly,"  are two little-known proverbs. One  of the poets writes of a imideu who  was  Pensive as a swan in sudden shade,  Nor know his skill in wooing suns to  shine:  an  illusion  to  the  belief  that "swans  and angels have the ear of God."  There are, perhaps, more superstitions deaLng with crows than with any  other birds. They are known as "the  devil's own" in many countries; their  caw has been declared to be a cry of  "Cain," yet their presence nesting near  a village is sometimes regarded as advantageous, on tho principle that "the  ill's ail being done when the crows  gather."  The contradictory nature of beliefs  respecting them arise from the wrong  use of the terms crow, rook and corbie.  "Corbies dinna pike out corbie's een,"  signifies plainly, "thieves are kind' to  thieves." "Every craw thinks his ain  brood whitest," implies a regard for  heredity; while "Gin ye hadna' been  amo' the craws ye wadna hae been  shot," contains a moral warning.   ���������  Some unpleasant subject for discussion is always threatened by the  words, "1 have a crow to pluck with  him;" but "They're a bonny pair, as  the crawtsaido' his feet," seems merely intended to make fun of the hated  bird. "He's but the tail o1 the craw,"  is equivalent to describing the accomplice of some evil-doer. Many a superstition-ridden country person has  grieved for fear of coming adversity,  I for no other reason than because of a  dream of crows flying arid croaking.  To dream of hearing a lark is, on the  contrary, a prophecy of future wealth  health and riches won by industry. It  is doubtful if ariy search among records of the past Would result in the  discovery of a single omen, legend or  proverb disrespectful to this honored  bird. "The raven doth not hatch a  lark," wrote Shakspeare, while two old  sayings are: "The lark sings but to  heaven and to his home," and "Larks  mount singing. .  Farmyard birds have been made the  subjects of many common proverbs,  such'as "Children and chicken must always be pickin'," "Curses, like chickens, come home to roost;" "A laying  hen is better than a standing mill,"  "Sauce for the goose is sauce for the  gander." . But four unfamiliar sayings  are these; "It's an iel housewife who  roasts the old rooster," "The fool puts  his last hen in the pot," "The crowing  cock loves his own music," and "Geese  follow their leader, if he's a big enough  goose." -  Cornish folk are devoted to pigeons,  and declare "The ring dove will lose  his ring it he is bought by a faithless  lover." The belief that "He who is  sprinkled with,pigeon's blood will not  die a natural death" dates from the  time of Charles I. A sculptor, who was  carrying home a bust of the king, stopped to rest on the way; at the moment,  a pigeon flying overhead was struok by  a hawk, and the blood of the bird fell  on the neck of tho bust. As everyone  is aware, Charles "was beheaded.  It will be remembered that many  superstitious ideas surrounded the  magpie, and we are told that "Angels  flit when pies chatter."  A German peasant woman will assure a stranger to her country, "Luck  is coming to me, because the storks  flew over my chimney this morning.  Ah, no man's as wise as God's stoiksl"  No person will be found nowadays  sufficiently credulous to expect immense sudden wealth on account of  having dreamed of earring a canary  or to fear misfortune for having, during slumber, imagined himself turned  into a hen; yet these are fables which  actually deluded the ignorant in bygone days.   , ��������� ���������     i   .  i  PURELY 1111III.

J., entered a restaurant in  th'at town and ordered ham and eggs,  as -th'at seemed to-be the only available dish'.' After he had waited half  an" hour, staring impatiently at the  verdigris-covered bottles in the caster,  h'e summoned the proprietor, whom he  questioned 'regarding the delay. "Tho  ham is all cooked," was the reply, "but  my little girl is still out in the yard,  waiting for the hen to lay another  egg." '       ' i  Most of the ITrench papers keep in  their employ'harmless persons who are  registered as managers of the respective publications. When a paper has  published any article of a libelous character, in regard to which the victim  makes legal oomplaint, th'e registered  manager stands trial as an offender  and is subjected to fine or imprisonment,   perhaps   both.  The biggest man in Iowa lately died  at Fort Dodge. He was Alfred Daniels, whose height was 5 feet 9 inohes  and his weight ovor 000 pounds. His  circumference was two inches more  than his height. His' coffin was so  large that it oould.not be taken into the house, where he died; and his  body had to be placed in it outside  the door.  Four Newark undertakers were triok-  ed by a joker, who engaged them separately to meet and take charge of  an imaginary coiypse at tho Pennsylvania Depot in that city. They waited several hours with their hearses  and then the undertakers compared  notes. One of the undertakers,had lent  the joker ������2.50 and a pair of shoes.  Tho famous Loudoun madstono, which  for a century and a half has been in  frequent use in Loundon County, Va.,  and elsewhere, has cured thousands of  dog, cat, and rattlesnake wounds, was  recently sold at auction, and was  bought by Dr. Turner of Snickerville,  for #082.50.

Tire measles caused the death of an  old resident at Chapman, Kan.; at the  age of eighty-four. A local paper, in  announcing the death, touchingiy. remarked: "We would hate like the  mischief to live three-quarters of a  century and then be carried off by a  baby  disease."  Deep curiosity was aroused by a Wisconsin paper when it announced a lecture on " The Beneficial Effect of Flirtation on the Public Health."
