The new tower on the Central hotel  is nearly finished. The weather vein  has been ornamented .with a miniature  pick  and   shovel.    The   change  the mine laid out to be done between  now and the first of October and .had  '���1525,000 set aside with which to do it,"  ���laid Manager Cronin a few hours  after the men quit work last Monday,  "but this specified amount of work  could not be accomplished by working  tlie miners only eight hours and pa\*  ing   the ^3.50' scale. ' Therefore, .the  only alternative is to close  down   the  mine." -  "What affect will the shutting down  of the mine have upon the building of  the now concentrator?" was asked. '  "It will have no material affect for  thepressnt. We will continue work  for a couple of weeks ,at least. Then  should there be no change in the situ,-,  ation we may close that work down  also. It would be useless to expend  150,000 or (50,000 "for a concentrator,  flume and tramway and then have  them .lie idle and rot."  Mr. Cronin is of tbe opinion that  Lhe eight hour will not be a success,  aud contends that the theory advanced  by so many that  a  miner can do  as  total eclipse.  By the terms of   the, agreement  for'  the fight between Jeffries and   Fizsim-  mons, the ex champion received   .1"35,-"  561 and Jeffries#27,0.54'.  It is 'declared '  Fiiz would, not make the match  until  he had bt-i.;_ guaranteed tbe large end  of the purse and the gate money, owing, to his' reputation, and position.  Mr. Brady, Jeffries' manager, accepted  J.0 per cent for bis man, believing  that in the long run such an amount  and a decision were worth more than  (JO per cent and defeat.  f. il  adds greatly to ihe appearance of the j much work in eight hours as  he   can  build intr.  , G.

THE 1XQUEST.  it was decided that the inquest  . Fhouia be continued that same after-  ' noon. The still ire had, notified the  district attorney at Dover, to be present and assist, and lie arrived during:  the morning. All of the jurymen and  witnesses were therefore notified to be  present at the ..quire's house at two  o'clock. This was at the suggestion  of Air. Karnes, *who had a special reason for not going back to the farm,  lie did not wish Virginia to know that  ��� Marvel had beon captured until after  *;he had testifisd. To further this end  Marvel was 'instructed to remain in  one of the upper rooms, and though he  was net1-'actually under arrest, he felt  constrained to obey.  Mr. J3arnos learned from Burrow5 of  the strange noises that he had heard  on h:s first night at iheifarm,|)lmt told  his young assistant that' he had probably been dreaming. Whe.11 Informed  ��� of the singular behaviour of Sarah  Carpenter, he thought that of suffl-  eient importance to have' her name  added to tho list of witnesses." "durrows  told nothing of tho information, imparted by Josiah'Skene. ..  " 11 r. Barnes then nought the district  attorney, and was elofeeted witli him  for an hour, .during which they arranged their plans for conducting the  examination.  Tha inquast was to be held in a large  room on the ground floor. It was well  adapted for the purpose because ' of  the fact that the squire had allowed  it to be used as a schoolroom while  the selectmen were having the regular  schcolhouse enlarged and remodelled.  Thus there was a raised platform at  one <.-*d, upon whicli the squire and  the witnesses could sit, while the rows'  of benches readily afforded seats for  .   the jurymen and the' spectators. ,  News of any importance'travels rap-  icily in a small town like Lee, and before the time set for the inquest quite  a   motley   crowd   of  people   Had   congregated   about   the  squire's   grounds.  There were men and women,  farmers,  , workmen  and idlers, nil more or less  in'tereste'd - in   the   proceeding*   which  '      were about to commence, and each had  3ome   theory.(, air his  own,   a��  to   tlie {  identity of the guilty one.     One man  remembered   a   farm   hand     who   had  been   discharged   bv   Lewis   and   who  J.ad   left   the   town,, breathing   vense-  'ance.   Another  had   met  a  suspicous-  looking tramp  prowling about J.iver-  side   on   the   very   day   of   the   crime.  Being" reminded  bv a  neighbour that  he had spent all of Saturday and' Sunday oyer in  Dover,  he was forced   to  , admit   that   it  might    have    been   on  Friday when he had met the  tramp;  but,   nothing     disconcerted,     he     ron-  tinued   to  urge  his  opinion   that  that  individual would yet be proved to have  a   guilty  connection  with    the   affair.  This proposition was ridiculed "by another,   for   the  simple   fact   that   nothing had been stolen'would tend to exonerate a tramp,  who could' not  possibly have any other motive but theft,  and then he drew attention to the suspiciously close arrival of the man who  claimed to be the son, and who would  now  come in for a share in  the property.     But yet another had only ih-it  morning- heard that the entire property  would go to the daughter, and so settled that theory.  An old lady at this juncture mysteriously announced that the whole truth  of the matter had been .revealed to  her in a vision, but just what it was  she declined to sTate " till the proper  time corri?s." So they argued and  talked over the situation, till at length  Mr. Tupper, the district attorney, appeared, walking with Mr. Barnes. All  then knew that the investigation  ���would at once begin and forthwith  I.ushed their way into the room which  M,as to be the scene of the inquiry  The    proceedings    began ', promptly.  The squire  entered,   followed    by   M*\  Tupper   and   the   two   detectives,   and  took a seat in a leather-covered chair,  which   had   been    brought     from    his  library and- placed upon the stand   a  similar "one   awaiting    -the- witnesses.  Mr, Tupper/and Mr. Barnes took chairs  at  a small -wooden  table  in  front 'of  the   sauire,   and   Burrows   went   to'  a  seat among the crowd.     The jurymen  were   called,   and,, aa. they' responded  to their names, were directed to' plaec-3  on benchos placed laterally beside the  stand  at  the  end nearest .to the wii-  I'ess  chair.     It'is worthy  of remark  that, though this waslu a small, isolated country town, the composition of  this jury was   far above  the  average  to be met with in: large cities.     Here  all were men of families, and .identified   with   the   interests     of  the   cdiu-  frunlty in which .they lived.     Each, a.s  he sat, was the embodiment of earnestness  and  sincerity.       Rougli    garbed  though   they  were,       they'    possessed  shrewd minds and good common sense,  and   therefore   would   make admirable  jurors. A     .���'.'-:   '  The preliminaries over,'.the examination was begun. Mr. Barnes wat.  asked to take the, stand, and he testi-  fied to the discovery of the crime, and  the position and condition of the  ccrpse as first .seen by himself,. when  he accompanied the squire to the  house on Monday morning, and to  other facts which  have  been already  tdld.        ' ,  /.';.'  The next witness was l>r. Snow. Th*  squire interrogated him.  " Dr. Snow," he. asked, " have you  prepared a report of the autopsy made  by you yesterday upon the body of the  deceased ?" .  ���   ��� " I made a thorough examination and  have   notes   of   all   that   I   discovered  which could, In my opinion, be of the |  least assistance."  " Very well. . What then do you find  to have been the cause of death?"  "The man was shot. The ball is of  large size. I am not expert enough  to give the exact calibre, but think it  is a No. -32." '       "  " Did you succeed in finding  ball?"  "Yes, here It is." He passed  the squire, who in turn handed  Mr.   Tupper.  " Dr. Snow," said, the latter,  you tell how long ithe deceased  after   the   shooting?"  "I found the bullet lodged in the  heart; therefore death must have been  instantaneous*."  "Did you find any other marks of  violence ?"  "In addition to th* wound which  proved   fatal   1   found   another,   which  ttwough the body and emerged aguin."  " Can   you .  describe   , the    direction  which it  took "*"'  "From   the front  toward  the back."  " How   was   the   body  dressed ?"  " In a nightdress, and it is a noticeable-   fact   that   though   there  are   two  wounds there is but one hole through  the garm-^i.t."  " Did the fatal "bullet pass through  that hole V" '  " It would sei'in that it did. but as  the nightdress is a loosely-fiiting garment it Is impossible 10 say, .is the  two wounds are so close together.  Mr. Barnes whispered to Mr. Tupper,  who then continued :  " Yy'zis this last wound above or below the other ?     What I wish to know  is,  was it  high   c-nough for the bullet  to  have come from a pistol fired from  the   lawn  and  through the'window?"  " Yes.     I thought of that point, and  therefore' measured  the  height of  rhe  window-sill from the ground and from  the   floor   inside.   1   found   , by    these  measurements    that   the   sill   is   about  five   feet   from   the  lawn   outside   and  only   two  feel  above   the  floor within.  The- wound which we are now considering is above the fatal one, though only  slightly   so,' and   is  ao   located  that if  the   deceased     had   been    standing   it  would hove been about fonr^fec-f above  the. floor, and-so two feet hd'gher ih&n  the' window-sill."  " Then, in your opinion, that wound  may have been made by someone on  the  lawn '.'"  "1 am sure',,that it would hav-; been  possible. Of course it might depend  on how near Mr. Lewis stood to tlie  window." "   ���  As* ihe doetcjr was about to'with draw  Mr.   Tupper stopped him  by asking :  " Will you *il<>a*-*e toll us if you found  any rnai;lc.s, scars you .Iknow, or birthmarks, by which the identity of the  corpse   might   be   established '."'  " Nothing w ha lever. The face and  head have been burned bovonri all possibility  ot re-.-og._Iiii.ri."    ,  "Were these burns of such a' nature  that they may have been ihe cause of  death ?'"  "I should say not, but of course if  a man were burned, as badly as that  he might subsequently die, though not  so   .juic-klv."  Mr. Tupper, addressing the squire,  si.id : ���  ���" I suppose there is no doubt as to  the iclentity of the body, but in the  face of the fact that the features are  so much did figured it would peril apt.  be as well to se-'k some evidence in  .this direction."  "I have no doubt," said the squire,  " that MI.**s',L-ewifddnay be able to help  us better than anyone, though I will  say this much myself :���When 1' first  saw il.e body lying by the chimney  and leaned over it, I noticed ' lhat  there was a name on the nightdress  In   larne   letters."   -  "I saw thai a'to," said Dr. Snow'.  "It is in indelible ink, and done with  a. stencil plate. As might be expected, the name is John Lewis."  " That in itself seems almost conclusive," observed the squire, 'Vbut we  can ask Miss Lewis about th�� matter when she is calle:!."  Dr. Snow was then allowed to leave  the stand. ��� {,  "Now." 'said Mr. Tupper, ." if we  can we must try to discover the time  of the crime. r believe, squire, you  are tl*e one who last saw Mr. Lewis  alive. Can 'you t^-ll at what hour  that was,,as near as possible ?"  *'I went to see Mr. Lewis on the  night of lhe murder, and was in the  perlour with him nearly an hour. ' I  must have gone about eight o'clock,  for it was but half-past when I reached mv own home." '  *' Then,   of   course,   he   wns   alive   at  (hat hour. .  The detective,  Mr. Barnes,  has  described   to  us   the   tracks   which  ho   found   in   the   snow,   and   also   the  discover*.-  of   the   two   pistols.      These,  he thinks, wore fired at the time when  or   immediately   after "ihe    snow   had  "tated   falling   last   nisht.        Whether  cither of these shots caused  the death  of Mr. Lewis or not. ai  least it is pos-  sil'l.-* lhat  one of ihem made the fi"sh  v ounr.  which.  Dr.  Know  has described.  It   will   be   well,   therefore,   10   fix   lhe  time vhen  the '-now storm  ceased."  Jof Harrison was then called, a.nd  swore 10 the facts which he had re-  lat.-il \i> Mi-. Barnes, and added that  he 1 ad again questioned his daughters, and that they substantiated the  cpinion   which   he   had   given.  The   next ,r>erson   esllt-d , was   Sarah  Carpenter.     She came in.  from  an adjoining room, as did all  the witnesses,  having   been   considered   important  one should r.ot hear the- testimony  " others prior to  being examined,  sal  down   rather stiff-  evident   that   she  was  it  It  thiol* tl  ^y-s Carpenter  ly,   and   ii   was  Bivei'sid"  at  of  of them fcr-  men who work  bov   to   do   lhe  a   roiuctni.t   wftnes. .

But her temper affected  Tupper-as. little  as     though    he  ��___���   ansTveretS,   sullenly.  " Ah ! That is better ! ��� Now, then,  tell us about what lim�� that is usually ?"  " I esjn't tc-U. 1 have not kept track  of it."  ���' Well, then, at what time did 3*ou  start for home on Sunday evening ?"  ���' Look here !. What right have you  to ask me all those questions ?" Then  quickly" turning to the coroner she  continued, " Squire, have I cot to an-  sv. er - everything this man asks of  me ?*'  "Ycu must tell all that you know,"  leplied the squire.  " And what if I won't' ?"  " Ycu would b* guilty of contempt."  " And what of tliat V"  " I  could have  vou confined In gaol  and kept rlwie until you were willing  to answer tlie questions."  She pondered over this awhile, and  then, lurning to Mr. Tupper a-gain,  said,   faharolv :���  " Tell rne at once .vhat it i�� you are  trying: to K*et out of me ?"  '" I, want  to know at what time ths-  j_hot,*.sas fired that killed,Mr. Lewis."  " How should 1 know V"'  " You would  have heard  the report  if you  had  been  in the house."  "And  how   do   vou  know   I  was  in  the  he use ?'*  " That is what you must tell us.1"  "Well, then, 1 was not in the.house.".-  'If   not   in   the'house,   where   were  you when  tbe shot  was 'fired ?','    But  she  was  too  shrewd  to   be caught  in  this trap, and replied :���  "I did not say I heard the shot."'  " You seid you were not in the house  when   the shooting took  place.     How  could  you  be sure of that  unless you  heard  it from some other point ?"  ���' You said' I would have heard it if  1 had been in the house,"'replied the  sirl, t-riutm-ihantlv, but Mr. Tupper  quickly went on :���  "Ah'! Then vou mean to say that*  you  did   not   hear  the report '?"  " 1 don't mean to say anything of  the kind," she' retorted, with similar  rapidity. This was a inck'of Mr. Tup-  per's to get his witness excited, and  then by rapid questioning to surprise  her irto'such an admission as shc had  just made. The words were scarcely  uttered before .-he saw their .Import,  and she continued, savagely :���"-You  are'making rne say what 1 don't' mean.  Why don't you. ask for- what'you want  to know 'without so much beating  rcund the bush '!".  " Well, then, come to the point. Did  you hear the nlstol shot on - Sunday  night ?"  .- But the eirl kept silent'awhile, and  then Jumped off the stand, and dropping into a seaj; burst into tears.' Mr.  Tupper -and Air. Barnes talked in low  tones ��� for several minutes, and then  the former whispered to the .squire,  who called to the stand the work-,  men alluded to by the last witness.  The squire himself questioned them,  while the lawyer and detective con-  ���ulted.  The witnesses ' appeared separately,  but .their testimony shed no light on  the matter, as the four older' men had  spent the evening at the saloon, while  the younger had retired to the house  across the road, and had goue to sleep  at 7 o'clock on the evening in question, and he declared that he had  heard nothing .during the ���nigh't.' .By  this lime Sarah Carpenter had recovered from0her emotion and was sitting quietly on the front bench. (Will  Everly was then called tund' took ihe  stand. As he did so Sarah seemed  much agitated, and with difficulty kept  her composure. Mr., Barnes, who was  watching: her, noticed her dlscomfori  and smiled to 'himself as one conscious' ot. being; correct in some surmise.    'Mr. Tupper  proceeded.

All through the above Burrows, who  was watching Mr. .Barnes, was sur-  prised to notice that, Mr. Barnes wa*  keenly scrutinizing the girl Sarah Carpenter, who was In evident distress;  and he at length fuspected that this  examination of loverly was really in  some way aimed ai the young woman.  Mr.   Tupper continued :a  "Were you present when Marvel  quarrelled   with   I A.   deceased?"  " He did not i.v.arrel with Mr. Lewis,"'  artewered Everiy, with some heat. "He  simply, did what- any man would���ho  resented a gross insult."  " I think he fired at Mr. Lewis, did  he not ?" Everly was a little confused  as he replied :  " He was very much excited and  took out bis pistol. I don't think he  would really, have fired ' ii, but Miss  l_ewlfl struck his arm and the weapon  was discharged. 1 think, it was an  accident."  " But did he ' not utter threats  agalnst l��.v.

'  '���..'; Mr. Kverly," said the lawyer, impressively, "it .isv.very worthy'of you  to defend your friend, but be 'cweful  lest in doing so you damage your own  cause." " '".���������','.���,'..'���"'  And   Burrows   saw   Sarah   Carpenter  shrink   closer  into   the -corner,' vainly  endeavouring   to   appear   unconcerned.  "'Why,  what  do you mean'.'" a��ked  Everly. ',���'������  ;��������� " I d.vill be candid with you. You  have just admitted that you would  Imperil your life to serve your friend.  You knew, after the quarrel between  these men, that John Lewis would  ever be a barrier to keep Marvel from  marrying, the woman of his choice. Do  you see your position now?*'  "Not   clearly !    .Go   on!"   said   the  witness," hoarsely.  d " Unless, you can prove that vou were  not at Riverside that night, it might  be thought���I say it might be���that  you  committed   this  crime." \  Everly hung his head"as he replied  " I was at the farm." This statement  was followed by a suppressed cry'  from the corner where Sarah Carpenter  was sitting. All those present looked  grave, for the words, as Everly spoke  them, sounded almost like a confession  of guilt. Mr. Barne-i alone seemed not  to be surprised.  "What were you doing at the firm?"  asked Mr. Tupper, resuming the examination.  "I went there to see Miss Carpenter."   He blushed deeply.  "Are you in love, with that lady?*'  The women present ' thought this a  merciless question, but though the colour deepened on his efeeek Everly  straightened himself up as he replied :  Mrs. Parker, the blacksmith's wife,  was hurrying along the street toward  ber husband's shop.  It had been hfir daily custom for  years to carrj* him his noonday meal,  las Parker declared'' too much time was  consumed in going to anel from his shop.  Ho was a big, burly fellow, with' a  scowling countenance and a' right arm  strong enough to fell an ox, and as his  disposition was none of the best people  were." careful not to provoke him to  anger.     ,   '  Hif. wife was hie opposite in every  particular, ehe being a tiny, timid  creature'of a mild nature, and. like  Alice of "Ben Bolt" fame, ."trembled  with fear at his frown." ���  Why she ever chose Parker as a husband or why'ho selected her for his wife  was a matter of comment, as there  8e3ined. to be no love' between them.'  Yet Mrs. Parker was a faithful spouse  aud. strove, to administer to her husband's .comfort, though she never received anything but harsh words and  surly looks for her pains.  Glancing at a clock in a shop window, she perceived it was past the din-  ,ner hour, and her heart sank within  her in anticipation of the scolding she  was sure to receive, as tlie blacksmith  set punctuality above all things.  On reaching the shop she was relieved  at not seeing her husband within. The  place, however,, bore evidence of his recent presence, and everything indicated  that he had taken a hasty departure. A  fire blazed in the forge, and a horseshoe, which still retained its warmth,  lay ui>qu the anvil. Mrs. Parker glanced  around in hope of .finding a suitable  spot on which to place the" dinner pail,'  bnt, .seeing nothing more convenient  than the anvil, deposited the pail beside  the horseshoe and took her departure.  Upon arriving home she busied her-  Belf with household affairs, as she was  a thrifty housewife, 'despite any other  shortcomiugs.  That evening, when Parker returned  from his work,0 lib was in a worse humor than usual, and his habitually  scowling countenance was more forbidding than ever. He flung fiis dinner''  pail upon the table with a 'crash which  startled his wife into a cry of terror.,  She fully expected the vials of his wrath  to' be poured upon her, as railing at his  wife was Parker's chief occupation  when at home. Bnt, strange to say, on  this occasion he never even glanced toward her, but strode acrosa the room  and. taking a basin cf water, began removing the traces of toil'from his hands  and face, after which he made his war  into an adjoining room for the purpose  of substituting fresh garments for his  grimy ones.  Mrs. Parker breathed more freely as  the door closed sharply behind him,  and she picked up the pail and examined it. A sigh escaped her as she discovered a deep dent' in the side which  had come in contact with the table.  On removing the lid she perceived that  the nice meal sho had prepared had  been scarcely tasted. Another sigh  escaped her as she emptied the contents  of tho pail into a receptacle near by.  Presently a rat-tat-tat sounded upon  the door and Mr. Cobb stood without.  Mr.,. Cobb was a short; stout individual*  with a bald head and rubicund countenance, a coroner , by occupation, yet,  notwithstanding tho gloomy nature of  his business, he was a jolly chap, and  frequently dropped" in to enjoy a chat  with the Parkers, with whom ho had  Btruck up a sort of friendship. In his  younger days he had been something of  a ventriloquist, but this fact was unknown to many of his late acquaintances.  "Oh. good evening, Mr. Cobb!" Mrs.  Parker said as she perceived her visitor.  "Walk right. in. James will be here  directly. He haB gone toget cleaned up  a bit." ���-' ��������� -'   ..-. A.-  Cobb entered the kitchen and took a  seat. .Mrii." Parker continued her work..  ���,-. "You are as industrious as ever," he  remarked, glancing at the pail she was  rubbing.

And as he spoke he  turned toward the mantelshelf and began filling a pipe with tobacco.  "I supposed every one in town had  heard of it by this time;" said Cobb,  "news travels so fast."  "I have no time for gossip." said  Parker, with a frown.  "Certainly not. But one cannot always avoid hearing of certain happenings. Well, old man Jenkins was found  dead in his barn this afternoon."  Mrs. Parker clasped her hands together in speechless horror.  "How do you know it was murder?"  queried tlie blacksmith, Bitting down  near his visitor, but not looking at him.  "It seems like it," answered Cobb,  crossing one leg over the other, us he  seated himself more comfortably in bis  chair.

There is  nothing  more   to be  said  about it.'" answered  Cobb decidedly. ���     ;  "A fool made such < a custom ns  that,'.,' muttered tho blacksmith;'rifling  to refill his pipe,  "Of course," assented Cobb pleasantly. "Every ono is a fool who dares to j man of, wealth and power  differ with ourselves." Parker con-  ' Btrned the remark-as a, thrust at himself, and his face grew dark with rage.  Ho clinched bis fist as though he would  deal his visitor a blow. The instant  Cobb's eyes foil upon the hand he cried  out: '  "Why, how did you hurt your hand?'  ' Parker, with a half  muttered curse,  quickly drew tbe member out of  sight,  but the next  instant thrust  it forward  again.  A dark purple bruise extended across  the knuckles.  "I struck it," he explained sullenly  "It amounts to nothing."  "It must have been quite a hard  crack." said-Cobb lightly. "Well. I  must be going. Goodby, Mrs. Parker:  gcodby, Parker. Don't forget tomorrow  morning at 9 o'clock," nnd with this  parting injunction he left the house.  His face wore a thoughtful expression as he wended his way along. There  was that in the' blacksmith's manner  which set him to thinking, and there  dawned on his mind a suspicion that  Parker knew more about tho murder  than he cared to tell, and he (Cobb)  cudgeled his brains for a plan to force  a confession from him.' At last he hit  upon one he'deemed expedient, and,  forgetting where ho was, he fairly  shouted out:  "I'll do it, by Jove!   I'll do It!   Tho  experiment is worth trying I"  Tho next morning tho coroner nnd his  jury assembled in the barn whero lay all  that remained of  Samuel  Jenkins.    It  was a ghastly looking corpse, with eyes  wide   open   and    numerous    cuts  and  bruises about'the head and face.    The.  blacksmith    avoided   facing   the   dead  man, as ho fancied the latter was looking at him, so  he  kept  near the door,  which was  out  of - tbo range of  those  wild, staring eyes.    lie trembled like a  person with   the   ague.    Bui   only one  man present  observed   his;'uneasiness,  and that was Mr. Cobb.  He watched every movement.    As the men drew near.  A  Fniuoin   I'nUon   MyKtcry.

Swindling is as monotonous as ethics  or mathematics, and the various way?  and means resorted to in the last decade  of the nineteenth century for obtaining  Ijossession of other people's money were  matters of common knowledge in the  Egypt of Rameses the Great. But the  Parisian police now affirm that a new  departure ha3 been made on the banks  o�� the Seina. And this is how it w.yi  worked:  An office was  hired in   a' good business street by the inventor of the trick,  who assumed the title of .comnbodv and  company, chemical agents.    Being convinced  advocates  of   women's   rights,  they employed   some  members, of  the  fair sex, who dressed -in the  height of  fashion, used the most fashionable perfumes and   then visited singly the best  apothecaries' shop.    One of  ih.>;c. fair,  false emissaries would   stop her cab at  tho .chemists, corne   in and, .taking out,  her purse, ask'for another-bottle of Dr "  Beaumont's  elixir     "Dr'   Beaumont's  what?" said the young man behind the  counter. "The elixir. Don't you know'?'  "No; I am afraid I never hearti of it.'  "Oh, how tiresome, and my poor rheumatic husband w'ill be so disappointed'  Are  you sure it was not here that our  servant bought it before?"    "No. ma-  dsme: it was not here.   Where is it sold  wholesale?"    "It is  sold wholesale,   I  think"'��� And here thela!dy showed the  ticket on the bottle.   "It costs 8 francs. ",  That   same day the   chemist' bought'  tho   elixir wholesale, laying  in   a fair  stock of it, and iheanwhilo many of the  confreres wero doing likewise.   But, as  nobody called any more on the obliging  chemists to buy the  elixir, one of   the  curious   confraternity    analyzed    this  specific which wis  supposed   to relieve  rheumatics.    Ho found   that it was  at  least  perfectly harmless, consisting of  w*ater colored by coffee grounds.

Never    has. a hill   been   passed  by  lhe   provincial  legislature  of  British  Columbia which has  had such a  disastrous affect on the mining  industry  as has the new eight hour law.    Since  the 12th of the��� mouth,,,the   date  the  new law was  enforced,  this  fact  has  become   more   apparent   than    ever,  Mines all over the province are  closed  down, hundreds of mon are out' of cm-  ,,  ,ployment   and   that ���friendly   feeling  which lias  long   existed between   the  .   miners   and   tho   mine   owners    has  ceased to a large extent.   'It is  feared  the new law will have a bud   affect on  Moyie.,   The   principal  mine  in   the  camp, ��� the   St.   Eugene,   has   closed  down, aud the management gives out  the information that it will not  again  resume operations until such   time as  miners can be secured who  will   work'  for $3 per day, or the obn04\iou_ ladv is  repealed.    It had a specified   amount  of work to do this season' with a specified amount of money, but   tiiis, -it   i.s  claimed,  could   not'be  accomplished  by working the men'only  eight   hour  ->liifts and paying $3.(30 each per shift.  Therefore,   the   only  alternative    left  was to close down   the   mine.    So   far  as can be learned    the miners   at   the  St.  Eugene   were   perfectly    satisfied,  with    the   condition.,   which    cxictcd.  Some of   them ' had   worked    in   the  mine two, three   and even four years  without a murmur.'  The mine   is dry)  tho air is good,   aud, ten   hours'   labor  /was"not  considered   ;ifc   all excessive.  But the eight hour I Aw   has   created a  rupture in these, at one 'time, tranquil  conditions.  Miners, more than any   other   class  of working men, arc   Always   reluctant  about having their wages .cut, and   for  Miis they are to be commended.    That  thoy were   willing to   work  ten   hours j  for $.').'.() is .-hown   by' the   fact   when  such i ,-ystem'wus in vo'^ue  (lie   relation-- b.'tweeii th.rr. and tlieir employers weie   most  friendly,  while   under!  the new   conditions  a   great   discord  prev.iil.-_.  The new 'law has been tried :>nd  found wanting. It has proved to be a  dismal failure, and the people who  have the best interests of the province  at heart should demand its lepeal at  as early a date as possible  tt  A magnificent program is fining   prepared   consisting   ol  A^-jeS-Hieiit Wurji  Cnntrncts Tsilcow.
