The most beautiful  woman of the present time, a pictuie of  perfect health, is Miss Enid Wilson, who  was recently married to Lord Chesterfield. By common agreement it has  been decided that there are only two in  the long line of celebrated English  beauties who can compare with her.

The increased stature of our young- girls  is one of the  notable    improvements    in   physique  which is exciting comment.    In the last  generation a woman of five feet eight  | inches was so conspicuously tall as to  attract annoying observations.    In New  York    society   now   there   are   fifteen  young women who are six feet tall and  several buds who are over that.   The  boarding schools  for  boys are  taking  notice of this fact and are paying special  attention  to  exercises   which  develop  height.   There was  a  time when  tall  girls   were   considered less subject to  colds, headaches and  nervous attacks,  but that foolish idea belongs to the past.

Concentration of low grade cinnabar  ore is not ordinarily deemed effective or  advantageous; reduction of such ore is  not expensive: the cost is in the mining  and no method of handling it could  lessen the latter.

She awakened by the clock  striking 6, and cries indignantly:  "Delia."  "Yis, ma'am.-'  "Why didn't you call me at 5 o'clock,  as I told you to do ?"  "Sure, ma'am, Ye told me to call ye  if ye had dropped off, I looked in on ye  at 5, an' ye hadn't dropped 'off at all !  Ye were layin' on the bed in the same  place, sound asleep !"���Ex.

Here in 'British Columbia, if a man i.s utterly worthless he  aspires to represent the community  in the   local   legislature,  and occasionally,    through   the   apathy   of  good men.  succeeds.       In a young  and progressive   province,   worthy  men do not'care   to   neglect   their  business in order to represent their  riding at Victoria-   for 8-KM) a- year.  a.ud abuse   thrown   in.       For  this  reason we have a. weak legislature,  composed principally of  cheap human materia.] that values self above  everything else, and prefers to look  after personal interests and quarrels;  instead   of   the   general   welfare ofj  the province.     As long as the B. C. I  legislature is composed of this kind  of materia]   just   so   long   will the  people suil'er.  In the Slocan   we   know   of   two  men who are  aching  to   represent  this riding at   Victoria.

Away we went past Jackson Park,  Hyde Park, Woodlawn, with no let-up  in speed. I saw the danger and got  sick with fright.   But I knew that Hoff- j  where we ought to stop. At last 1 I  stood up and looked over. Joe sat in i  his seat, his head out the window, but I  his hand not on the lever. I thought I  the man had gone daft, hut 1 said, as j  calmlv as I could : !  'We're running too fast old man.'  The Naked Truth.  TRY -SITLJ'HUR.  He never noticed me, and I went  back to my seat convinced he was crazy.  As we neared Hawthorne a red light  gleamed on the main line a thousand  yards ahead. Joe paid no attention to  the signal. We had run two hundred  yarde when I yelled: 'Shut her down !  There is a freight ahead!  Joe did not move. I ran from my  seat, shut off the steam, gave her the air  and sand and brought the big train to  a stand still not a hundred feet from a  long freight train pulling in off our  track on to a side track.  T was as white as a sheet, mv heart  was thumping and I was a\\ of a-trern-  ble. I turned to Joe. His head was  still out of the window. I put my hand  on his shoulder and said: 'Are you sick  old man r" He was limp. I sat him up,  and one look at his face told the truth.  He was dead and cold. I held a lantern  up close and took another look. There  was no mistake. Poor fellow he did  not see, the 'little one.' They called it  heart disease.  I took the train up to Hawthorne  station whore, his body was left. In five  -minutes another engineer was in the  cab and wo, left on time. Few of the  passengers knew of the. narrow escape  they had.  As for me I shall never forget that  ride nor the fright I had. It was the  most horrible experience of my life.  A   Lesson   ill TCconmiiies.  Manjr an honest woman has roasted  herself over a hot stove to cook a fat  chicken for a lazy preacher. Many a  spinster and housewife have worn their  shoes out tramping the streets to gather  in donations for her loafing pastor. Many  a good woman has rustled with  church fairs, grab-bags, sociables, and  church lotteries till every bone in her  body ached and she tossed all night in  restless inharmony from her fatigue.  Millions of women have done a cruel  penance of this or a worse sort in the  hope of redeeming her soul of the blight  which designing pulpit thumpers have  plastered upon it with that legendary  cock-and-bull story about the fall of man.  AVherever woman has reared her head  above mediocrity or manifested a desire  to express, or even entertain an opinion  of her own, she has been read a stanza  about " tempting Adam "and knocked  down with the bible. She lias been told  for 1800 years by her dear pastor that  her disobedience to God's command  brought ruin and degration upon the  race.���The Searchlight.  Oh'!, the fighting races they don't die  out,  If they seldom die in bed,  With love first in their hearts no doubt,  Says Burke, and Kelly said,  "When Michael, the Great Archangel,  stands, ' '   '  The angel with the sword.  And the battles' dead from  a hundred  lands are ranged  in  one   great  hoard,  Our race from which Gabriel's trumpet waits  AVill stand three deep that day,  From Jnsephat to the Golden Gates  Kelly and Burke and Shea.

The, Chicago correspondent of the  New York 'World' tells the following  story:���  I'nguided and   unchecked,   with   the  speed and force, of a comet.a great steam  engine, attached to a train bearing H00  passengers,   leaped,   the   other  night,  through a ten-mile  tangle. ,"f  city and  suburban switches,and. its iron muscles  ichiirgcd   with  some  safety-seeking instinct, plunged   into  the  little station  Hawthorne, III.  A'dead'man was at the throttle:   had  Jsat there since  the   Freeport   express  steamed out of Central   station at  Chi-  fcago.    For ten miles, with   the engine  [screwed    up    to   a    fifty-niile.-an-hour  [speed,  his limp,  dead   hand   had laid  (powerless to divert disaster,   his dead  [eyesbad looked blanklv out at the ap-  [palling danger ahead.    Not one of the  (passengers   or   employees   aboard the  [train suspected his own real peril,  nil-:  l-'IHK.MAN's stokv.  'Keep the. steam   in  the second 80's  (Hank,' said Hoffman to me as we were  (f)ulling out of the- Central  station that  ���light.

Before we had gone two  tfiileswe were, running fifty miles an  nir. double our usual speed. I could  )t see the engineer for the boiler was  Jtween us. I thought he wanted to  lake up the lost time, and that the  'tfcle one' was on his mind. On we  ent, humping and swaying around the  From an economic ������ standpoint there  are but two ways for a man to secure  the means of living���hy his own labor  and by the labor of others. The man  who does not by his efforts increase the  sum of the. world's wealth must live  upon the results of the labor of those  who do. If a man obtains wealth or a  daily livelihood without producing it, j  some other man, or set of men, must |  produce the same by their labor and not  obtain it. If one man has a permanent  income some other man, or set of men,  must have a permanent outgo. All the  wealth of the world is the result of labor  applied to nature's gifts. It is taken  from the earth, which is nature's storehouse, by labor, used for the satisfaction of human desires, and, by nature's  laws, returned again to the earth, to be  again and again brought forth to supply  the wants of succeeding generations.  The quantity of wealth in existence at  any time must always be limited. It  has been variously estimated at from  three to six years' production. It i.s not  the existence of grea' fortunes in a few  hands that causes distress, but privileges and favors that enable some to  lake from the products of many from  dav to dav and from vear to vear.  The  Def'tieon's  Dream.  "May you take this lesson home with  you to-night, dear friends,'' concluded  the. preacher at the end of a very long  sermon. ������And may its spiritual truths  sink deep into your hearts and lives to  the end that your souls may experience  salvation. We will now bow our heads  in prayer. Deacon White, will you  load?"  There was no response.  "Deacon White," this time in a louder  voice.    "Deacon White, will you lead?"  Still no response It was evident  that the Deacon was sluniberiug. The  preacher made a third appeal and raised  his voice to a pitch that succeeded in  waking the drowsy man.  "Deacon White, will you please  lead?'  The Deacon rubbed his eyes and  opened them wonderingly.  "Is it mv lead?    No���I just dealt.
