W.J,, Walker, of the Freeman's  Labor Journal, Spokane, was here the  fj.rst of. the week in the interest of his  paper and was induced to address a  public mceiing Wednesday eveningon  behalf of the pause of organized labor.  While some of Mr. Walker's argument was sound aud logical, a good  portion of it was radioal in the extreme and even absurd. At the outset ho sajd he was conservative in his  vies'ik, but he soon drifted into -iocial-  iscic channels, and ic- seemed ��� difficult  for him to leave those lines.

Mr.  Mc-  Kinley or Mr. Bryan, the dispatches  read, assisted his wife into   the   surry,  then raised his off   toot,   sprang  into  the yehicle and occupied a seat  with  her.   His lips  then  parted  just  one-  quarter of an inch a@  he  commanded  the driver to proceed.   Down the street  they sped   three   blocks   when   they  tinned into an   avenue',   the   wheels  barely missing a peach seed  that, had  been carelessly thrown   there   by   an  Italian   fruit   vender.   They escaped,  however, and the   man   of   eminence  looked pleased and spoke kindly to his  wife who shivered and shook her  frills  and rich laces, but said nothing.   The  drive was completed in silence and at  two minutes   after   11   they   reached  home, a little too late to go to church.  The gieat man stepped from the surrey  first and waB shortly followed by his  fair spouse whom he gallantly assisted.  A few 18-inchsteps brought  them   to  their door whicli  they   entered   in   a  dignified manner and spent   the   balance of the day in sublime  peace and  dieaiuy quietude.

Some ladies is Texas were desirous  of doing honor to the editor of a local  journal, so they presented their hero  with an embroidered shirt,: winch contained a splendid history of Texas,  arid also pictures-of, the fruits and  cereals of the state worked all over , it  in red worsted. Now, this particular  editor had never worn a shirt, and  supposed the brilliant specimen before  him to be a banner for an approaching  temperance procession. In his speech  of thanks he puzzled the 'lady donors  by declaring that he would "(ling it  out forever to the breezes of' heaven,  that they may kiss its folds and till  his bands palsied it should never be  trailed in the dust."

Charlie Chan, a Chinese cur.lo dealer  oi Colorado Springs, Col., is a. mathematician whose ability to solve the most  intricate of problems with almost  lightning capacity, by use of a Chinese  abacus,, has just come to light, says the  Boston Transcript. Some eastern tourists made purchases of Chan the other  day aggregating $389.S2. These purchases ranged irom 5 cents to ?3ij. The  Chinaman took his rack and before the  tourists were aware he was counting  had the correct result.  This  excited the purchasers to ask  questions about the mode of calculation, and to give Chan sums to do.  The  party found that the merchant from the  orient had marvelous talent in hand--  ling figures.    College professors were  told oflheprodigy, and to satisfy.them-  selves went to his shop to pup him to a  test.     Problem.*!,   ponderoug   and   intricate, were given, to   him',    but   he  proved, equal to them h\\ nnd displayed  a dexterity in handling hie beads and  an accuracy in computation that-caused  the  professors to pronounce   hiin,   a  wonder,    Chan  is    regarded    an    the  wealthiest Chinaman in Colorado and is  a successful business man of 35 years of  age.

The splendid services performed  In South Africa by the Canadians have won', the world's admiration arid demonstrated that in the  sons of the Dominion the Empire has,  soldiers as' fine as ever marched under  Marlborough or Wellington.  None of    the    regiments    in    South  Africa       has       won ,     more       fame  than     have     the     contingents    from  Canada.        The'      first        contingent,  originally        a        body "     of        more  than one thousand men, .but sadly reduced ln numbers'-slnce it has been in  the  field,  has become  a veteran battalion,    and    its,   achievements    have  merited the highest praise from Lord  Roberts        and        from        all.        The  Mounted   Infantry   and   the    Artillery  from Canada have proved themselves  no   less   efficient"  in   every   action   in  which they have been    engaged,    for  Canada  is  a  country  which   produces  men- of the  finest type  for service in  the field.  At '   Paardeberg,     where '' the   gallant    Major    Arnold    met   death  unflinchingly,    Canadians    were .  placed  bv Lord Roberts in, the post of honor  side by side with the famous Gordon  Highlanders,   and   covered   themselvea,  with eloryi  being nearest    the    Boers  when  General  Cronje  surrendered. Tn  the  relief  of  Mafeking   the  Canadian  artillery  by  a  forced' march   won  its  way gloriously to the front, under the  eyes of all the world.    At Kroonstadt,  in the advance from ��� Bloemfontein, at  Heilbron,  at Pretoria,  at  Sand River,  everywhere that they have had fighting to do,  the Canadian infantry, the  Canadian   Mounted   Infantry,   Strath-  cona's Horse, and the Canadian Artil-  lery_L.a]l our brave boys have acquitted themselves like heroes.    Many   of  those gallant hearts that beat so high  when   the   cheering    thousands    bade  them  God-speed   as   they   sailed  from  Canada's  shores  now  lie  stiii  foreyer  in lonely graves on the other side of  the world under African skies.    Their  -memories ' .will     ever     be     cherished  among'  "the    iriost" precious    national  heritages   of- the  people    of    Canada.  When" the survivors  return    and    are  welcomed  home  with  joyous  acclaim,  the  unreturning ones" will   be  silently-  present, too, and their silent presence  will   be   an   Influence   that  will   never  cease to be felt in the national,life, as  a prompting to the highest patriotism  and the most self-sacrificing devotion  to   the   preservation  of   those    British  liberties   which   make   our   country    a  la-nd worth living in and dying for.  To  every Canadian   heart,   to  every  'Canadian   home,   the     deeds     of   our  brave soldier boys speak with an  ir  resistible  .eloquence,   appeal   with  irresistible   thrill ^nf���^oatriotlsm  pride.

"*��� The popularity of the Tnonthol pencil baa  caused the   uninitiated   to  ask, What is  menthol?   Menthol is a solid crystalline  body which separates from oil of peppermint on. standing.   It has the odor of peppermint, melts at 10S degrees V. and evaporates unchanged at a higher temperature.  Its use as a load application in neuralgia  in China and Japan goes  back   into the  dateless ages.   It i.s not known when or by  whom menthol crystals were first brought  to thc notico of European druggists, hut it  is said that it was used on the continent at  the end ot the last.century.   About lbM a  consignment of it was received m London  under the name of Chinese peppermint oil.  ' lb was also sold in Paris, in tho small red  labeled  Chineso bottles familiar to eastern  ' travelers, as "Po Ho oil." The commercial  history of menthol dates from 18.b.   In  four years menthol crystals were tbe rage  of the  season  and   began  being   carried  about in tho cono shape now familiar to  dst persons who aro in possession ot tbe  m  modern civilized nervous system.

I saw the performance,'and, its  there was likely to be a suit,  I  gave  the conductor' rny name.   He wasn't in  the fault in the slightest, nor -vas the  motormau, and it seemed my duty to  help 'em'out.    Never did man make a  greater .mistake.    In the course of a  week the injured man sent a lawyer to  me.    A week  later the company's at-,  torney showed up, and I had to go over  the story again!   Then came three different  relatives of  the  plaintiff,  and  each one abused me for not taking tbe  side   of   a    poor,   hardworking   man  against a rich corporation.    I  had  second visit from li  more visits from the  uey.    i'lien  came the' mbtorman  and  tbe conductor, and  1 got two anonymous   letters   in   which   threats   were  made   to   punch   my   head   if   I   went  against a poor man.    r  "In due time," said the good hearted  'man, ,"I got a subpoena to appear In  court. Tbe case was adjourned tliree  times. For three days I hung around'  the house, expecting to be summoned  any moment, and a .good thing passed  me by because I wasn't at tho ofiice.
