The tunnel on the Palmita is driven  500 feet from the surface. Jenken Bros,  have just completed their contract.  A shipment of ore from tne McAllister  mine near Three Forks, is contemplated.  The strike recently made on the property is attracting considerable attention.  Last week's ore shipments were small,  but large as could be expected when all  the big shippers prefer to remain closed.  The Whitewater shipped 96 tons, Jackson 16 tons, Queen Bess 40 tons, Black  Prince 20 tons.

YV. F. Anderson, of Nelson, was in  town last week. He is one of the C. P.  Jfc.'s most valuable passenger agents,  and has plenty of tact. While here he  was looking after an English tourist  party and was dressed for the occasion.  His pantaloons were knee ones.  The mouth-piece of the disgruntled  element of Four Mile, has disclosed the  startling evidence that the New Denver-  Three Forks wagon road "is no use to  anyone, never was used, aud never would  be." This sensational disclosure ought  to be bottled and sent post haste to  Rennes and made a part of du Patty de  Clam's bordereau in the Dreyfus case.  In the meantime the government will  repair the road.  GOT    A   7LITTJGE    BROTHER.  stock is one million dollars.  Work is being pushed on the Wee  Wee ledge, J. C. Harris' property on  the lake shore south of town. The tunnel has been driven 15 feet and the  ledge becomes stronger and better mineralized as work progresses.  Work on the Montezuma, on the south  fork of Kaslo creek, has been stopped  and the bond held by Messrs. Hughes  and McMicken on the property thrown  up. They claim they found work too  expensive under the eight-hour law.  ��IG    PROFITS    IN   SIGHT.  Puyin;   Mine   Never   l,ook<;<l   Better, but  Canadian Company .Won't Pay 83.50.  Yes, I've sot a little brother,  Never asked for him from mother,  But he's here;  But I s'pose they went and bought him.  For last week the doctor brought him;  Ain't it queer ?  When I heard the news from Molly.  Why, I thought at first 'twas jolly;  'Cause you see  I just imagined I could get him,  And our dear mamma would let him  Play with me.  But. when once I had looked at him  I cried out, "Oh, dear!   Is that him?  Just that mite?  They said. 'Yes, and you may kiss him!'  Wo.il, I'm sure I'd never miss him.  He's such a fright!''  He's so small it's just amazing.  And you'd think he was blazing.  He's so red;  And his nose is like a berry.  And he's bald as Uncle Jerry  On his head.  He's no kind of good whatever.  And he cries as if he'd never,  Never stop;  Won't sit up���you can't arrange him,  Oh, why don't father change him  At the shop?  Now we've got to dress and feed him,  And we really didn't need him,  Little frog!  And I cannot think why father  Should have bought him when I'd rather  Have a dbg!  -London Mail.  At the Alexandra-Delley mine, situated on the second north fork of Lemon  creek, work in the 230 foot tunnel has  exposed a large body of very rich a-old-  bearing ore, assaying as lug-has S378 to  the ton.  To the Sandon Paystreak'last week E.  G. Rykert, of the firm of McCuaig, Ry-  kert & Co., Montreal, when asked how  soon the Payne would start up, said that  it was very uncertain. .The mine, he  said, would certainly not pay $3.50 for  an eight-hour shift. No arrangements  had been made nor were contemplated  for bringing in men from cheaper camps.  The program for the present was to continue development on the contract system. The Payne mine is worth more  money now than ever before and can  ship 500 tons a week just as soon as it is  opened up. In No. 4 tunnel there is an  ore chute 400 feet long which averages  2)4 feet in width for its whole length.  The ore will run 500 pounds to the cubic  foot and will average better returns than  anything yet shipped from the mine.  There is not another such a showing of  lead ore in Canada, and it is doubtful if  there is a more valuable body of galena  blocked out in any mine in America.  Speaking of the Galena Farm, in  which he is interested with the recent  purchasers, W. L. Hoguc and A. W. Mc-  Cune, Mr. Rykert says they have $100,-  000 worth of ore in sight. The zinc,  which the old management considered a  detriment, has lately become valuable,  and besides the zinc ore there are large  bodies of lead ore in sight. A concentrator will be built immediately, but the  site has not been decided upon yet.  THE GABDKN CINDERELLA.  The pear tree and the cherry tree were dressed in  snowy white.  But   the tardy   little apple tree was in a sorry  ���   . i'-tehf.  For it couldn't boast a blossom, and it wasn't fine  at all.  And the doleful little apple tree felt very, verv  small.  But spring, the fairy of the world, still lingered  on her way,  And she waved' her magic wand  around, and  magic words did say,  And with" an answering   blush  and smile the  happy apple tree  Came olofiming out in pink and  erhite, the prettiest of the three.  ���Martha Burr Banks.  toTIall mines smelter, Nelson.  J. L. San ter, mate of the ss. Sandon is  back from a holiday spent at the coast.  Dr. Doolitth', of Toronto, was here  last week to look at some,mining properties.  Messrs. Dickinson and Felt are looking at several properties, with the object of purchasing* for their'company.  School opened last week in the old  quarters. ' The'new* school house will  not be ready for occupancy for another  month.  A very pleasant dance, took place last  Friday night at Chas. Bean's cabin on  the lake shore. Dancing was kept up  till a late hour.  The New Goldfields of British Columbia Ltd, of which Sir Charles Tupper, is  president, will resume .work on the Exchange group shortly.  D. O. Lewis and R. B. Eaton of Nelson, are inspecting several properties,  in which they are interested on the  second   north  fork   of   Lemon   creek  During Mr. Williams' absence in England work has been temporarily stopped  on the Chapleau, but will be resumed on  his return which will be in a couple of  weeks.  W. S. Johnson, of Gwillim & Johnson,  has returned from surveying the site  for the new long tunnel on t'^e Evening-  Star mine on Dayton creek, and it is  likely work will he commenced on it at  once.  ' E. M. Shupe was home for a week and  left Monday again for Lardo, where he  lias a general store. Pie reports very  favorably of that country and states that  some high gi-ade ledges have been lately  discovered on Cooper creek.  The. government has appropriated  money to complete the trail up Lemon  creek as far as the second north fork.  Work was started this week. This will  supply a long-felt want as there is quite  a heavy traffic up this route.  Ore is being brought in from the  Black Prince. This has to be packed  from the mine as far as the end of the  wagon road and is then brought into  the freight shed by wagon. The first  carload was shipped this week.  The Evening Star will resume operations on the first of September. They  have the site of their new tunnel laid out.  This will be 1000 feet long and in addition they will complete the wagon road  from Springer creek up to the mine.  A force of six men are at work on the  Duchess Group on Lemon creek. This  property consists of five claims situated  near the Alpine. The ledge is a high  grade free milling gold one. They are  now driving a tunnel in on the vein.  The church of England has purchased the building* on the corner of  Ward ave and Main street, and is having it moved over onto the church lot  on Arthur street, and will have it rebuilt into a very complete little chapel.  W. W. Warner.M. E., was here last  week looking at several properties in this  neighborhood, in the interest of eastern  capitalists. It is understood he will report favorably and it is likely at least  one property will change hands shortly  as the result.  The wagon road has been completed  up Springer creek nearly as far as the  second bridge on tho old trail, which  crosses the creek about one mile fiom  the Arlington Basin. The government  appropriation of $2,500 is about all used  upandv.ork will be stopped in a few  days. It is intimated that the Arlington  Mining Co., will complete the road themselves this autumn.  The Oro Gold Mining Company has  taken a bond on tiie St. Louis group of  six claims, situated near the head of the  second north fork of Lemon creek. The  ledge is a free milling quartz, and some  very g-ood specimens have been secured  containingconsiderable free gold. They  are now developing the property and if  the results continue to be. as satisfactory they will purchase the group. A  good wagon road could be made down  to their stamp mill, situated at the  confluence of Main Lemon.  There  are  12 men   working   on   the  Black   Prince.      The  week the ore. in the face of the drift  changed a good deal in'character and the  pay streak is now six feet wide. The ore  carries more galena and has increased in  value.  There are seven men now working on  the Alexandria-Delly property at the  head of Mineral creek, a tributary of the  second north fork of Lemon creek. A  cross-cut tunnel is being driven to tap  the lead below the shaft. The or*-*, sampled lately gives over $375 in silver and  gold values per ton. This property is  stocked in Spokane, where most of the  stock has been sold. There are a. number of very promising properties in that  neighborhood, and when some more  work is done on this creek it is certain  that two or three good properties will be  the result, as the indications are most  encouraging.  FBOBABLK   STRIKE   IX    ROSSI, AND.  yn  ��THER GAWP NEWS |  ���^c  DUNCAN    CITY    NEAVS.  A sensational report is sent to the Toronto Mail and Empire from Rossland as  follows: "The largest mining camp in  the Northwest is on the verge of the biggest miners' strike in the history of this  section. Six thousand miners, mostly  Americans, and many of them lately  from the Cceur d'Alene district, hi Idaho,  have, resolved through their miners union not to accept the wages offered by  the British American Corporation, owner  of the LeRoi and Centre' Star and other  big mines, and Gooderham &Blackstock,  owners of the War Eagle andotherprop-  ertieg, the principal mine owners of the  district.  "Last winter the British Columbia  Parliament passed a law prohibiting the  working of men in mines more than  eight hours per day. The rate was $3.50  for ten hours. The Rossland mine-  owners offered $3 per day for eight hours  and proposed in the event this was refused to introduce the contract system.  At a meeting of the miners these terms  were rejected. The mine owners, fearing that the Cceur d'Alene spirit was  rife among the miners, organized a  militia company, the head of which is  Ross Thompson, who laid out the town  of Rossland. A carload of rifles and two  machine guns have been obtained."  This is given for what it is worth.  SI.OCAN   ORE    SHIPMENTS.  Total shipped July 1 to Dec. 31, 1898,  17,994 tons.

From our Regular Correspondent.  This, besides being a railroad centre.  is much of a mining district. Many of  the claims now located near this city are  really worthy of note. The writer being-  much interested in such matters, has  visited several of them, and can realize  the importance of the district to the  populous districts of tlie Kootenays, especially Nelson and the towns in the  Slocan. The ranching- possibilities of  the section are without doubt the greatest in the Kootenays. From the big-  jam situated on the upper Duncan,  about 2-2 miles from this city, to the  Kootenay Lake, are thousands of acres  capable of being cultivated and of raising" many of the most called-for products of the marketable kind.  On Hall creek and other creeks on  Duncan river are many exceedingly  rich claims, in fact, the portion of country on Hall creek and Bear creek is so  promising that but little remains to be  prospected, but above and below these  creeks is a good field for the prospector.  Two  years ago there   were  a few  claims located in this district, but now  what a vast change!   Subject to all this  vast country rich in mineral and ranching* possibilities, and at the foot of this  fine body of water j called Houser Lake  is situated the town now called Duncan  City.    It is as beautiful a location for a  town as could be.   The residents, while  not numerous,  feel confident that Duncan City in a few years will be the ideal  spot of British Columbia.     The  lake  here is some two and a half or three  miles in width, and, shut in as it is, it is  always quite safe for passage.    Beautiful spots here and there on the waterfront charm the numerous visitors who  arrive on most every steamer from the  different towns.  Prominent among our business firms  are the Simpson Bros , the original locators. They carry a good stock and  are popular. They have leased the hotel situated on their premises to a very  popular and pleasant gentleman, Mr.  Dunbar, who is accumulating quite a  stake. Among- the other business  houses must be mentioned that of our  old Slocan house, the general merchant  firm of W. G. & G. J. Macdonald, who  carry the larg-est line of goods of any  firm doing business here. They are  doing a large business, and are always  obliging* and ready to serve their patrons; This is a branch of the Whitewater house. Their stock is always replete with all the supplies needed in  the hotel, prospecting- and family trade.  Nine hotels cater to the needs of the  public. A few old S-ocanites are here  engaged in their favorite occupation.  Supplied with all the lumber necessary,  as there is an abundance of saw logs in  the vicinitv.  CTjO.SK    MARGIN,    INDEED.  20  Total tons.  iij.ij.-v.;  PAYNE    MAY    COMPROMISE.  A Grand Forks correspondent to the  Vancouver News-Advertiser says : C. J.  McCuaig, the we'd known Montreal mining man, will shortly revisit the Slocan,  Republic and Boundary country. It is  reported here that his western trip will  be undertaken largely with a view to a  compromise with the miners, and the  early resumption of work in the Payne  mine mine. Mr. Wilkes, the organizer  of the Miners' Union, was in town today.  He is engaged forming branches of the  union throughout the country. Speaking about the situation in the Slocan be  said: "I expect to see work resumed in  the mines very shortly. One thing is  work   done  now i certain the   eight-hour   law  will not be  amounts to a cross-cut tunnel of 141 feet | repealed."  among- them Mr. Klenismill of Sandon,  whom many of your readers will remember and wish him success. He has  perhaps the best and most substantial  hotel in town. Mr. Otto Prole, late of  Robson, carries a well-selected stock of  goods and is most centrally located. He  has no kick coming and is very popular.  The town is supplied with the other  tradesmen���one drug store, bakery,  brewery, laundry���and with all that  conduces to the comforts of an intelligent community.  By the middle of December the town  will be in communication by railroad  north and south. Then the very un-  navigable lower Duncan river will be  dispensed with aud the steel rails will  be laid in readiness to convey passengers and merchandise in direct line  from the wholesale centres of the Koot-  neys, the Dominion and the States.  A. D. Anderson, our esteemed town-  site agent, has just been appointed notary public, and W. Simpson, of the  firm of Simpson Bros , recorder for this  district.  The pile driver, which will be used in  the construction oi the large bridge  across the lake being built by the K. &  S. railway contractors, has just arrived.  The 0. P. R. is rapidly going ahead and  possibly may have the steel laid into  the city by November.  G. 0. Buchanan, the well-known mill  man, has a mill being towed up the  river, and in a few weeks  we shall be.  The  Mine  Owner's, lockout is rather  amusing, aside from the evil effect it is  having   upon   this particular section.  It is a  lockout that injures most the  mine owners, or they who carry the key.  Since the Association mines shut down  to S3.50-a-day men they have been losing money daily    On the other hand,  the miners who were   thrown   out of  work by the shut down have secured  situations   elsewhere   and   have been  making*   money daily.     Every miner  who can be spared has either gone outside of this immediate vicinity and secured employment or is away in the  hills.    The whole trouble has now centered in this vicinity, and, with the exception of the Ymir Mine in the Nelson  district, all the mines that are refusing  to pay the standard scale of wages are  situated within a radius of ten miles of  New Denver.     Nine out of ten of them  are  dividend payers, when working.  The managers ought to recognize the  hopelessness of their case and proceed  to business like men of reason.    If they  had succeeded in   operating  a sing-le  mine under the Association scale in the  past three months there might be some  excuse for their hanging* on,   but they  have failed utterly, and they stand in  the position today of the boy who has  locked himself out of the  jam closet.  While every   man   attempting   to   do  business in the district is suffering" with  the mine owners, the mine workers are  not injured by the folly of the situation.  It might be well for the mine managers to look at the situation from the  point of view of the Toronto Telegram.  It reasons thus:  "Eastern investors are deeply indebted to the British Columbia papers like  the Victoria Globe,  Vancouver World  and the Nelson Miner for the true light  they have thrown upon the possibilities  of mineral properties in that Province.  These journals and the mine owners  with whom they sympathize have given a black eye to the British Columbia  ���propositions,' which  have tempted the  speculative enthusiasm of the eastern  investor.     British .Columbia   journals  and   British   Columbia    mine-owners  must  know their   own   business, and  their actions indicate that they have set  an unduly  high value   on the mines,  which are working so close to the margin that a difference of two hours a day  means the difference between profit and  loss.    British   Columbia   mine-owners  have been dealing with the Eastern investor as if their properties were amazingly rich.   Some of these mine-owners  give the lie to their own pretenses by  professing that their mines will not pay  under an eight-hour basis. These mine-  owners have a good case   against the  eight-hour law.    They should be freed  from its restrictions of that statute, and  at the same time the eastern investor  should   allow able and patriotic journals   like the   Vancouver   World and  Nelson Miner to open his  eyes to the  trulh that he is asked to pay too much  for stock in British Columbia properties  which are capitalized at   one,  two or  three million  dollars, and yet  are so  poor that they can be put upon the road  to ruin by two  hours' difference in the  day's work of each miner.     When  it is  a question  of selling stock   a certain  class of British Columbia journals talk  as if every  property in   the Province  was worth  millions,  and when  it is a  question of wages these same papers  talk as.if there was not a property in  British  Columbia which   would not be  pushed into  bankruptcv  by a decrease  in the length of the working clay, and  such a decrease does not necessarily imply a decrease in the working power of  each mine."  Mr. Justice Drake lately rendered an  important decision in the case of Chas.  Darts vs St. Keverne Mining Co., to the  effect that in surveying a fractional mineral claim or anv mineral claim of subsequent location, the boundary lines of  any prior location shall  not be crossed.

IS IT WORTH THE LEARNING?  SCRAPS JfJ-tOM THE  EDITOR'S .DESK.  The fisheries of B. C. are worth five  millions of dollars this year. The  red fish catch at Silverton is not included in these returns.  Joe Martin has been tried for  , champerty. This is not as bad as it  might be. If he had been tried for  hoboilation, pugilarity or Cottoncide  the consequences might have been  extremely dreadful.  Many people say that in the Slocan  ruin stares us in the face. This is  dreadfully naughty up.-n the part of  ruin, as to stare at anything is not  considered good form in this advanced  stage of" the world's history.  The bubonic plague is doing business in Portugal. It.is only a question of time until it reaches America.  We trust it will stay away from the  Slocan, as we have trouble enough  without any sure death striking us.  Is it worth the learning,  This love they bless���  Pale loversyca'rning  For happiness ?

Lawyer, JLecturer, Writer and .Histrionic  Star���For Many Years the Butt For Ridicule���His Suit Against Sotbern���Died ut  ���  Last In Poverty.  The editor of the Fort,Steel Prospector calls us a pessimistic humorist.  He must mean persistent or pesky,  and has evidently jerked the wrong-  word out of his vocabulary. There  is scarcely a trait of pessimism in our  moral, mental or pin sical nature.  -The Bossburg Journal says that  Bruce White is a millionaire, and  that the Slocan Star has been sold for  $3,000,000. Bruce may be worth a  million or two, but the sile of the  Slocan Star is only known .to the.editor of the Journal, and he must have  got the news in a dream.... It could  not be found anywhere else.  At, the annual convention of the  Typographical Union in Detroit, the  president said: "The strike as a  weapon of. organized labor has been  greatly abused. Its too frequent use  has tended to lessen its effectiveness.  Under no circumstances should local  unions be permitted to engage in aggressive strikes without complying  with all the laws of the International  Union, and not then unless the union  shall have sufficient funds on hand to  pay strike benefits and expenses for a  period of at least eight weeks."  PATRIMONY,  Matrimony  has become prevalent  in Kootenay during the past year or  two, and there is scarcely a hamlet  but can boast of several people who  haye made contracts of this kind.    If  the number of marriages continue to  increase at the same  ratio in the future as they  have recently we look  for an enormous advance in the price  ot baby carriages.   Matrimony in its  first stages is always full of bliss and  nicer to take  than  scotch and ooda.  It is then that the world is bright and  no cloud of sorrow floats around the  honeymoon.    The.middle and   last!  stages of matrimony are not so blissful, especially to the   woman.

To the attention be was  by no  means averse, but he was an intensely solemn individual when considering himself, and there is no doubt that he  often suffered keenly from being made the  general butt for Xew Yorkers'amusement.  It became the fashion when   ha appeared  on the  stage in   his  later years for audiences to hoot, howl, jeer and-almost mob  the poor old "count." in their ferocity of  ridicule. He usually bore it all with much  courage, exhibiting concern   moro for the  supporting n>enilx*rs of his company than  for himself, fearing lest they should.be involved in his own disastor.     Unquestionably the public had  some excuse, too, for  its  behavior.    The "count" grew to bu a  very bad  actor as he advanced in  years,  and his personal appearance wusgrotusquo  in tho extreme.    He was tall  and  largo,  with a scholarly stoop.    His face was long  and showed tho  traces of ago, though ho  always dyed his heavy mustache  He wore a wig which  fitted execrably.  The elder Sothern   said of  it  that "you  could put two fingors   botweon It and his  head and twist it all around."    Ono lock j  was carefully arranged to fall  upon   his j  forehead and the  hair at the   back   hung j  down to his coat collar.   He was anything |  but neat in  his ordinary dross.    A heavy !  felt hat and clothes of   black   broadcloth, |  decidedly shiny, wero his usual costume  j  For a necktie he woro a red   ribbon with j  his "order" of nobility attached to it.   His I  aged black kid gloves were carried in one  hand, and  tho other was thrust melodra- j  matically into the bosom of his coat.    His j  attitudes were always studied and tragic,  and he resented tho least attempt to triflo  with his dignity.  The "count's" career was a remarkably  varied one.    Ho was of Yvolsh descent and  was born in England in 1810.    He is said  to have begun his stage lifo in that country, but his cxperienco  there   must  have  been short, for ho was playing in America  in 1831.    Ho had secondary parts in vari  ous  plays, most of  them  Shakespearean  tragedies, and  his reputation as an actor  at that time was creditable.    An incident  which happened one New- Year's night at  about-this period proves that the "count,-'  or Jones, had a good share of courage.  He  was playing at tho  Bowery   theater   in  "Richard    III"   With   the   elder   Booth  Booth* was the king "and Jones had tlie  part Of'Richmond. Booth had.been drink  ing 'heavily, and  as  the  play   proceeded  fancied that he was the actual King Rich  ard.'   Under this delusibri' ho caliio upon  the stage in tho Inst act in a frenzy and  made desperate efforts to kill-Richmond  In fight.-   Jones saw the condition of at  fairs, met Booth coolly and by his excellent swordsmanship succeeded in disarm  ing him and bringing him to the ground  The publio applauded wildly, not comprehending the situation, but knowing that  they were witnessing a splendid contest  While n't the Bowery theater Jones married Mel inda Topping, the daughter of a  New York builder. She was an actress oi  some ability and played many engagements in this city and through tho country. Sho afterward separated from Jones  and took their two daughters, Avonia and  Caroline, to live with her. Avonia became  herself an actress, and on ono occasion refused to support her father in a play in  which ho requested her to tako a part.  In 1841 Jones left tho stage and went to  England, whoro ho delivered a series of  lectures on tho Bible. He subsequently  traveled about Europe, and it was in Ger  many, according to his story, that tho title  "count" was conferred upon him for his  literary achievements. This was never  proved, and few belioved him. He wrote  several books on historical subjects at  about this time.  Upon his return to America began an  other phase of Count Joannes' career���  his legal aspirations. Ho was admitted to  the bar in Boston, and, coming from there  here, was admitted to the New York bar  in 1866. Ho became a constant attendant  at the courts, frequently for the purpose of  bringing suits for libel. In these actions'  he was generally his own client. Sometimes his grievance was that an aspersion  had been cast upon his title. But his most  famous suit was that against'' Dundreary"  Sothern, for caricaturing him, as ho complained, in the play of "Tho Crushed  Tragedian." This suit occupied the court  for a few days, during which the spectators extracted infinite amusement from  tho proceedings, but tbe judgo decided  that no injunction costld be served upon  Sothern to prevent him from continuing  the play. Sothern declared that he had not  the slightest intention of caricaturing the  count and that he scarcely knew him.  After some years' absence from the stage  he appeared  in  April, 1876, at  the  New  York Academy of Music as Hamlet.    Ho  woro black cotton gloves and a shaky little  coronet and with his old wrinkled face and  dyed mustache prosented a ludicrous yet  pathetic spectacle.   He met storms of ridi  culo from the audience, which had asseni  bled solely for that purpose.  He played oc  casionally thereafter, but keptsinkingconstantly lower and finally died   in poverty  at the West Sido  hotel   on   Dec. 80, 1871)  His funeral was on Jan. 5, 1880, at "Tho  Little  Church  Around   the Corner," and  his body was laid in   Maple Grove cemetery, the authorities of winch offered a plot  for tho burial.���New York 'i'ribuno.  ���ttJ-a3*a*afa*��i.aaa-, ���***a-J>^>J?**>��.Thi **��nr>*s7*.jik*~. g__.��j.*^ wa^.  oirrtir  Established 1817.

My office and  plant, where I molded publio opinion and  told a limited numbor of subscribers what  to do in order  to be saved, was located In  a harness shop.    One bright spring morning, while engaged in writing an editorial  I was interrupted in my intellectual reverie  by the sound of scurrying feet below, and  the  next instant by a terrific explosion,  which shook the building.  "All was a blank for the next minute,  when I found myself lying up against a  broken sash. Gathering myself together,  after wondering whether it was the falling  of a brick wall or the kiok of an energetic  mule that had struck me, I surveyed the  ruins. There was a hole in the floor beside  me and one in the roof above, through  which you could have driven a government ox team, and a 'pied' and wrecked  newspaper office. It appears that the oo-  cupant below had sprung the combination of his safe, and, being desirous of recovering the princely sum of $1.70, along  with some valuable papers, had in a moment of temporary insanity engaged a  party to blow opon the safo door with  dynamite. The safe was placed on its back,  charged with the explosive, and tbe fust  touched off.  "The bright, intellectual engineer of  the job neglected to notify me when the  services began, and the results were as  above 6tateo\ It was a miracle that I was  not blown to pieces,'but, as luck would  have it, I was Just outside of the deadline,  for had I met the safe in its upward flight  the chances are my friends would be still  looking for my remains with a rake.

Gentlemen, I haVe  been jumbled up in a railroad accident,  mingled with the tail of a Dakota blizzard,  been wrecked at sea and storm tossed, but  this was my narrowest escape from sudden  death that I have to chronicle. It was decidedly a case of being blown up, but not  out. I am destined to die a natural death;  otherwise 1 would have crossed the pre it  divide long ago, for I've been on the brink  several times.

Mary Munns, Daw6on, Spring  county, Ky., though a woman'of limited  education, has been licensed as a preacher  by a theological college of that state and  Is by her eloquence and* surprising wopks  ���areating a sensation in the southwest.

She does not claim te  work miracles, but her followers and admirers assert that the laying on of her  hands possesses great pqwer*of healing.  Mrs. Munns was born in 18T)2 in Kentucky.1-It may bo said that she is descended from a race of pastors and is tho Sam  Small among women preachers.���Chicago  Record.

The new woman has kept abreast of the  times in educational'lines for the wee-one,  and Froebel and Rousseau have been studied ��� effectivery,1 and kindergarten*''���'Jdoris  have been kindly looked; upon j* i Freedom  in all ways is the dominant idea, and the  child should be left' untrainmeled��� in ae  tion, in.thought and also in dress in order  that jts development may bo of the highest  orde; And when it comes to dress,'the  new baby is partial to the advanced idwas  of the period, while as a rule women ig-  noro them so far as thomselves are concerned. Why is it,' then',' that mamma  chooses dress reform for baby and not for  herself? Because baby'solotlies; if simple,  aro comfortable. At the same time they  are dainty and pretty.   ���  Tbochiof advantage of these innovation--  lies In the fact that tho old fashioned pinning blanket with its band wound tightly  about tho waist has been banishod. In its  place is a pinning blanket that buttons on  tho shoulders and is cut with a str-ip  which crosses and interlaces about tin  waist. Tho skirt may be turned up-aboui  tho feot if desired, but ae the dainty little  booties in dainty pink or blue are usually  worn by baby,this is scarcely a necessity  It might bo added hero that some nibth-er.-  usono pinning blanket. Tho reform baby's  othor flannel skirt also buttons on the  shouldor, while tho mull underskirt i,*-  iiiade with a yoke or short waist and buttons at the back. Tho tiny skirt worn by  tho housohold idol is made of whito ca-sh-  mero and bound with ribbon, for the knitted shirts aro considered too harsh for thr  delicate skin. The seams in the shirts are  feather stitched down, and some mother:'  let baby wear them with the seams outside, comfort being the end fought.  According to the most advanced idcfn;  of many nurses and doctors, if baby is-  dressed the new way a band is not necessary after baby is a month old. Until  then a strip of soft flannel is worn, and  tho trained nurse will not allow this-to be  bom mud in anyway���it irrj-tetes tho baby,  she will tell you. After a month, ii a  mothor prefers that bahy wear a band, t>  knitted ono should be. used, with tiny  straps to go over tho shoulders. Another  innovation that a modern mother origi-  nated for her baby is a dainty cape, with n  hood, made of soft flannol and feather  6titched about the edges with silk. For a  short time after his entrance into chii-  world baby must bo kept warm, and the  little cape was found to be very useful. It  cun also bo usod to wrap baby in when he  is undressed for his bath. A dainty knit  sack is also a part of baby's wardrobi*  which Is found convenient and pretty  The baby will not need many dresses at  first���a very few are sufficient. But he  should be well supplied with what an.  termed "slips," which are simply made  ��� tut trimmed with narrow lace at the neck  and sleeves.

"Perhaps she even shrinks from the performance of these tasks and would like to  shirk them altogether if her pride in her  own housekeeping would permit her co do  bo. and yet she knows that they aro just  as important and essential as the more  pleasant duties in making up the sum ol  her daily work. The unloved duties arc  the trying points of each day's work, and  are often left to the tired end of the day,  when they are doubly annoying. Taken  one at a time, whilo we are fresh, and absolutely conquered, they no longer serve at  tbe bitter drop to our labors. The tasks;  we call unpleasant of ten show us the weal-  points in our characters; they are the duties that call for special patience or care-  taking or a marked concentration ol  thought and skill for a certain time and  perhaps a perseverance we are unwilling  to give before perfection is reached.  "A group of young housekeepers, talking of their homemaking, are almost certain to intersperse their conversation with  tbe things thoy 'hate to do.' 'Harry likea  pie. but I almost never make them, for I  oan't bear to make tbe crust,' says one.  'How I do hate to clean tho lamps,'adds a  second. 'Is there anything more tiresome  than dusting;' continues a third. Yot all  these young women have won prizes in  school, perhaps havo stood high in scholar  ship in college, and not one-half the conquering forco would be required to learn  to mako good pie crust, not a third of tho  patience would bo called for In dusting  beautifully polished new furniture or the  immaculate shining of lamps that thoy  havo applied for years to tasks of a different nature. Every unloved task raised  from its humble position to that of successful accomplishment and the ��� pleasure that  always accompanies suoh results adds just  bo much to the'complete rounding of our  characters. Achievement, after honest  effort, is one method of drawing up the  dropped stitohes of life."  H. J. R obertson,  TINSMITH,  Has returned and is prepared for all  kinds of work in his line.

Social etiquette among tho Arabs is a  factor in life to be considered seriously if  you wish to live among them without friction. Its obligations are not to be completely mastered in a few months. Sometimes when I have had companions with  me presumably thoroughly au faib with  all things Mohammedan the harmony of  the occasion has been seriously endangered  by some thoughtlessness or ignorance on  their part which to the Moslem could appear only as a contemptuous want of consideration. Thus, no greater insult could  be offered to an Arab than a friendly inquiry as to tbe welfare of his wife, to us a  natural civility, but to bim a gross imper-  tinenoe bitterly resented. On one occasion  I nearly made a similar blunder. I was  invited by a neighboring sheik to go over  to see him, and was on the point of riding  up to his tent door and dismounting thero.  Fortunately, however, 1 recollected in  time that etiquette demanded tliatl should  halt 50 yards off and call in a loud voice,  "Have I your permission to approach?"  This gives time to bundle off any of their  womenkind who may bo about, preparatory to the admission of a stranger. It is  curious also to notice that in spite of tho  real affection existing between father and  son, the sense of respect dominates all oth-  er feelings, and the sons will never sit at  meat with their father in the presenco of a  guest, but will wait upon both until the  father, rising, allows them the opportunity  of breaking bread with their visitor.  Provided, however, that you recognize  their social customs, my experience has  proved the Bedouin tJ be genuine, warm  hearted friends, and they really become  greatly attached to those whom they know  and who know them���**My JRednuin  Friends, "by R.

Phelps Whitnnirsh in The  Century.    Mr. Whitmarsh says:  One evening several members of steerage  No. 1 and I were grouped about the foremast, talking upon the all absorbing subject, America. The conversation drifted  Into an argument on the equality of man,  and this, in turn, led to a discussion as to  the rights of the saloon passengers.  "If we ain't got no right to go into their  quarters," said one of the men, "wot right  'ave they to come into ours? It'd be all  right if they be'aved theirselves, but they  don't, blast 'em! Anybody'd think as  'ow we wns a lot of bloom in lepers, to see<  tbe way ihey carries on���a-'oldin 'andker-  ohiefs to their noses an a-droring their silk  petticoats close to em. an tiptoein an tit-  terin. 'Ho, George.' says the big woman  with diamonds in 'or ears, as come down  yesterday; 'the pore, bloomin creechnhs,  but wot makes 'em smell so?' Just as loud  as that, mind you. S'elp me, I could 'a'  tore 'er to pieces!"  As I happened to witness tho incident so  graphically described by tbe cockney, I  could not help feeling tjat his anger was  righteous  School Funds In Colonial Days.  The logs for the great fireplace, furnished by the parents of the scholars, were a  part of the school expenses, and in many a  school when a parent was tardy in the delivery of his winter's load of wood the  ohild suffered by banishment to the farthest and coldest corner of the schoolroom.  The teacher's pay was in any of the inconvenient and uncertain exchanges of the  day, wampum, beaver skins, Indian corn,  wheat, peas, beans or any country product  known as truck. Whale oil and fish were  paid to the teachers on Cape Cod. It is  told of a Salem school that one scholar  was always placed in the window to study  and also to hail occasional passorsby and  endeavor to sell to them the accumulation  of vegetables, etc which had been paid to  the teacher.���Chaucauijuan  This is the season  when it makes the  house very uncomfortable to do  much cooking.
