New ore bins are being put in at the  Alamo concentrator to replace those  broken down last winter.  On the Calumet and Hecla, at the  head of Dayton creek, a crosscut tunnel  is being run to tap the ledge.  Frank LoCasto is taking a look at his  properties on Kokanee creek. He is  accompanied by Teddy Eyton.  On the Bosun the ore .body has widened to more than three feet. Night and  day shifts are now being worked on the  property.  W. Thomlinson and others have a GO  days option on the Arden and Kelvin  claims, adjoining the California, on  Silver mountain. The claims are being  closely prospected, and considerable  work is being done on a promising lead  which runs through both properties.  A deal was consummated Wednesday  whereby the two-thirds interest in the  Fidelity mine, owned by L. F. Holtz  ���and A. S. Williamson, was sold for  a cash consideration, said to be $10,000.  Scott McDonald was the buyer. The  property will now go into the hands of a  company   financially   able   to  work  it.  MINING  .AROUND    KOS.SI..AX I>.  A new .horse power whim has been put  in at the Gertrude.  A tunnel to tap three paralell ledges is  being driven on the Leiter.  On the Josie drifting east and west  from the 300-foot level is being continued.  Work is to be resumed on the Iron  Colt, and the property made an assessable one.  The shaft on the Velvet is* down. 175  feet. A slide has thrown; the vein on  this property.  Tlie regular output of ore continues at  the War Eagle, but very little dead woik  is being done.  In the Nickle Plate a single machine  working two shifts has driven 60 feet of  a drift in 10 days. ,  On the Virginia three drills are working, one crosscutting while the other two  are drifting in ore.  The shaft is down 205 feet on the Deer  Park. Not much other work will be  done until machinery is installed.  The"War Eagle has let a contract for  the construction of a steel gallows and  hoisting apparatus to cost -S20,000.  The Robert E. Lee Mining Company  has been changed from a foreign to a  provincial company, and the shares  made assessable to the extent of live  cents.  NEW   DEA'VEU   ITEMS.  H.

New Denver will have a fire hall if the  day of judgement is held off long enough.  David  Matheson   has   purchased the  (    Mclnnis block on  Slocan avenue, and is  now occupying it.    ,  The CP.R. discontinued their steamer  service between Arrowhead and Thomson's Landing yesterday.  From Spokane it is learned that a  great boom is wending its way 10 the  Slocan. It can't hit the lake section too  soon.  E. R. Atherton and George Williamson  have bought four lots at the head of  Union street, upon which they will  build a residence.  The lawn party given by Mrs. Alex.  Sproat and lady friends in honor of the  band, Saturday evening, was a highly  enjoyable affair, and was the open air  social event of the season.  The band is the pride of New Denver,  but it is the poorest supported public  institution in the town. If, instead of  contributing so liberally to questionable outside institutions, our citizens  would keep their money in town by  helping this worthy musical organization, it would be more creditable all  round.  Thesday the body of Joseph McBride  was brought to New Denver for burial  from the Queen Bess mine, where deceased was employed. He was a native  of New Castle, Eng., 44 years of ag*e, and  has a brother, also a miner, working  hei-e. The cause of death was acute  inflamation of the bowels, and duration  of sickness two days.  Little 10-year-old Tracy Aylwin is  visiting her uncles, the Aylwin brothers,  from her home in Seattle. She made  the trip to New Denver alone, and her  only misfortune was caused by a horrid  man stupidly checking her valise to New  York and leaving his for her. A surprise party awaits him when he goes to  get a change of clothes.  A canoe party of six had an exciting  experience   Sunday.    There were  four  On the Giant the new shaft has been  sunk 50 feet, and the bottom of the  workings continue in mineral. Some  ore is being shipped from the dump of  the old shaft.  Nearly 150 men are doing development  work on the Le Roi. New loading chutes  are being built which will be used in  connection with the self-dumping cars.  The shaft is being sunk to the 800-foot  level.  The face of the tunnel on the No. 1 is  all in ore. The ore is high in copper and  silver.  The Centre Star has been sold to the  Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate, of To-  Toronto, for $2,000,000. This property  was located in 1890, and was sold to  Durant for $25,000. It has about 6,000  feet of workings and is reported to have  more ore in sight than any mine in the  camp It is stated that a new company  with a capital stock of $3,000,000 will be  formed to work it.  Province, it must be known to the  Lieutenant-Governor, are in a deplorable  condition and there is little doubt that  his honor would give consideration to  that phase of the jsituation when he resolved to exercise his prerogative and  summon to his council a new set of advisers.  "In regard to the crisis precipitated by  the action of His Honor, an authority on  constitutional law said to-day that the  situation is unique in the political history  of the Dominion, which in some of its  features it undoubtedly is. There are,  however, several cases which may be  considered almost, if not exactly, parallel. For instance, in 1866 Lieutenant-  Governor A. H. Gordon, of New  Brunswick, practically dismissed his  constitutional advisers owing to a difference of opinion entertained by them  and the Imperial Government regarding  confederation.  "Again, in March 1878, Lieutenant-  Governor Letellier, of Quebec, dismissed  the De Boucherville ministry and summoned M. H. .G. Joly, alleging that in  general, recommendations addressed to  the ministers by His Honor did not receive the consideration due to suggestions emanating- from the representative  of the crown; and that in addition to  taking steps contrary to his recommendations, his ministers had not even advised  him of their intended course.  "The Mereier case of 1891 is too recent  to requii'e any lengthy reference. On  December 16th, Lieutenant-Governor  Angers, acting upon the interim report  of the commission appointed to inquire  into the scandals with which the ministers were associated, decided 'that the  ministry was not in a position to advise  the representative of the crown wisely,  disinterestedly and faithfully," and dismissed them from oflice without waiting  for the full report, which was published  in February, 1892." ,  has, however, not yet been commenced,  consequently it is more than likely that  the lists as printed for Provincial purposes will have to be used. A large vote  should be cast, as there were 1,453,735  names on the old Federal lists. These  were divided among the several Provinces as fallows:  * ��f GENERAL ORIGIN 1  1  (���.���V 1,021  351.07(5  111,12-1  91,(!!t7  25,24;-)  G5.(!81  20,780  Ontario   Quebec-   Nova Seofcia    Xew Brunswick   Prinee Edward Island   Manitoba   North-West Territories   British Columbia      38,018  In four of the Provinces there have  already been popular votes on the liquor  question.

In the following year, December  15, 1893, Prince Edward Island voted.  In 1S94 Nova Scotia and Ontario went  on record, the former voting on March  15th, and the latter on June 19th.

Frightful   Torture.  OPPOSITION   WON'T   FALL   IN.  SITUATION   AT    VICTORIA.  Cause   of Hon.   Turner's   Dismissal   and  Subsequent  Events.  Speakingof Premier Turner's dismissal  by the Lieutenant-Governor and events  following the Victoria Times says :  "Mr. Turner's surprise was the greater  as he had received from the Lieutenant-  Governor a communication to which he  had not as yet replied, and neither he  nor his colleagues had considered the  letter received from His Honor as  amounting to a dismissal. Of course  the contents of that letter and the  nature of the reply to be sent had been  the subject of consideration at the  cabinet meeting.  "On the other hand His Honor the  Lieutenant-Governor states that the letter referred to by Mr. Turner, while entirely courteous in its tone, as became  the dignity of the office of the sender,  was clearly a dismissal and not of a nature to require any reply.  "The Lieutenant-Governor on being  interviewed said the letter of dismissal  to Mr. Turner was the necessaiy  sequence of two letters which he had  addressed to the Premier in July and of  interviews with Mr Turner since that  date. When the result of the electioiio  was known he had informed Mr. Turner  that as  in his opinion   the country  had  Hon. Joseph Martin arrived from Vancouver last evening, says the Timesrand"  had a long interview with Mr. Beaven.  Seen by a reporter Mr. Martin said:  "I came over to Victoria in response to  an invitation from .Air. Beaven, and had  an interview with him last night, during  the course of which he requested me to  join his government. J had no hesitation in declining his offer, for the reason  that I belong to the opposition, which  counts nineteen elected members  amongst its numbers. I have on 1\* had  an opportunity of consulting with a few  of those members, but I am satisfied  they will all take the same viev,. They  will consider that they are quite competent to elect their own leader, and  will not be content to accept Mr. Beaven  or any other person notchosen by themselves.  ������There is no reason to suppose that  the action of fhe opposition in chosing a  leader will not be harmonious. That  question would have been disposed of  the other day at Vancouver had it not  been for the fact that three opposition  members were absent."  A later dispatch is received stating  stating that Mr. Beaven formally resigned the task and that Mr. Semlin,  opposition leader, was called by the  Lieutenant-Governor to succeed Mr.  Beaven. At this time Mr. Semlin has  not given out any particulars as to what  success he is meeting with.  One of the most peculiar methods of  self-punishment   among the   holy  men  of   India  is    that   adopted   in   several  parts of India by holy men, who stretch  their arms  above   their   heads,    never  lowering them. In time the arms  shrivel, the joints stiffen, and they  could not lower their arms if they  would. One of these men has held his!  JArnis. above his head for thirty, years, j  These fakirs are of necessity always  attended by servants, who feed them.  The idea is that if the arms are kept  up in  this  way  for a number of years  The tobacco farmers of Essex County  have already received offers of 17 cents  pej pound for their crop.  A London hostler, named John  Murphy, gave an Indian some liquor,  and as a consequence has been fined $50  or two months in jail.  George Laidlaw, of Hamilton, while  riding his bicycle one day this week was  run down by a trolley car and had his  skull fractured, and narrowly escaped  being killed. '  September 29th has been fixed by the  Dominion Government as the date for  the taking of the prohibition plebiscite  throughout the entire Dominion.  The weather in Toronto during the  past month of July was hotter than in  any but five previous years on record.  The rainfall is the smallest recorded in  July excepting in 1868 and in 1887.  A company from Philadelpnia has  been boring for oil at Belleville, Ont., for  some months past. A depth of 500 feet  has been reached and the rock is very  hard.  The Grand Trunk Railway Company  has just put on the road 26 magnificent  new coaches, which fai surpass any  hitherto seen on a Canadian railway.  The Grand Trunk shops are to be complimented on their skillful workmanship.  Several very fine specimens of corundum bearing rock have been received at  the Government assay oflice, Belleville,  which were found in the township of  Methven, Peterboro county.  I the merit is so great that the fakir can  I save others as well as himself, and  must necessarily be a powerful intercessor with the gods. After many years  an effort is sometimes made to restore  circulation to the whithered arms by a  long process of oil rubbing. This, however, is seldom successful, and the  poor wretch is left helpless for life���  helpless, in the physical sense, that is,  because his condition of holy infirmity  is a source of much gain. During all  the years the arms are held up the  finger nails are not cut. They often  grow to the length of 12 inches, and have  been known to grow into the hand and  come out on the other side.  FUNNY'     THINGS.  said  not voted confidence in his administration that no expenditures of money  excepting for routine business, or appointments would be authorized. One  rumor, very generally credited, is to the  effect that His Honor had also prohibited  his advisers from taking any steps to  float the proposed five million dollar  loan, and another is that the Bank of  British Columbia had peremptorily closed down on any addition to the present  overdraft, now approaching the enormous sum of one million dollars. These  reports have not been officially confirmed but they are probably very near the  truth.     The    financial'' affairs  of   the  Nevi*   Trick   on   an   Old   Miner.  "If you never had a mine salted on  you you have missed half of yourchance  to get good experience," remarked an  old-time Colorado miner to a Denver  Times reporter.  "Did vou ever have it. happen to  you ?  "Yes; my first lesson cost me S5,000,  when 1 bought amine in Leadville that  had boon tunnelled into the mountainside for nearly 200 feet. I had heard of  the trick of salting properties, so after  the man had showed me what there was  in sight lie invited me to go right ahead  and blast out several feet in order to  satisfy myself, which I'did, and the ore  seemed to be just as good as when  he was working it. Of course, 1 bought  it, and then it never paid a cent���it was  salted."  "But how could thoy salt three or four  feet into the solid rock?"  "There was the trick of it.

Miss Agnes Riddle, B.A., of Toronto,  has been appointed French specialist  teacher in the Oshawa high school. She  was chosen out of a list of 50 applicants.  The contest was a very sharp one, many  specialists competing.  While his family were at church last  Sunday evening, Mr. John Gillies, former Grand Trunk station agent at Alvis-  ton, Ont., com mi ted suicide by firing a  revolver into his mouth. He had been  ill and despondent for sometime.  Mr. Edward Simpson, of Hamilton,  Ont., who spent the winter in Dawson  City, has returned home for a short visit.  He states that there is much complaint  expressed against the way the poor  miners are treated by the officials of the  Government.  & McWhinnie,  Peterborough, Ont., was  drowned on the  morning  of August 1st,  j in the lake in Jackson Park.    Mr. Foote  rode there on his wheel to bathe, and it  I is thought he must have lost control of  j his wheel while going down the  steep  grade at   the   park  entrance, and both  dashed into thedaife.   His body and his  wheel were found in the lake by the park  caretaker.  The duties collected at Montreal for  the month of July amounted to $1,120,-  900. Last year for the corresponding  month they amounted to $530,705, which  shows a very gi-eat increase in trade this  year. The highest amount ever recorded was in August, 1890, when the duty  on sugar was $2.40 per 100 barrels; the  duties collected then amounted to $1,198,-  274.    This year's is second on record.  Archbishop Walsh, of Toronto, died on  Sunday night last. Some three weeks  ago the Archbishop severely sprained  his knee and had been confined to his  house ever since. On the evening of his -  death he had received a number of  visitors and chatted with them until 10  o'clock, when he retired. About half  past ten he started up in bed saying. "I  feel that I am going." A few "minutes  later he passed quietly away.  WATER   D KINKING.  Air, water and food are the three  essentials of life, and their relative importance is in the order, given. Water,  we all know,  is  really more necessary  to sustain life than food; for, while life  may be prolonged from seven to 40 days  without food,  it cannot be sustained  longer than seven days without water.  Our bodies   consist   largely   of   water,  and the   average   man needs to drink  from four to six pints of water daily in  order   to   maintain     health,    for    this  amount of water is eliminated from the  body by means of the kidneys, the skin  and the   lungs, and   a  fresh supply is  therefore needed constantly to replace  this loss, and also carry tlie nutriment  to the tissues   and   to   wash   away all  waste and  effete matters.    If the worn  out tissues are  retained in the body by  reason   of    an   insufficient   supply   of  water, the health must necessarily suf-  During the hot   weather, or when  sighed the young  the  most inconsistent  .

Thursday, the 29th  of next month, is  the date  fixed  by  the Government for  the vote all over the Dominion  on the  subject of prohibition.    The  question to  be submitted is  as follows:    Are you in  favor of the passing of an act prohibit  ing the importation, manufacture or sale  of spirits, wine, ale, beer,  cider, and all  other  alcoholic  liquors for  use  as bev-  erges ?"    All Canadians qualified to vote  at Provincial elections  will  be entitled  to vote on this question.   To defray the  expense of   the   plebiscite   the   sum  of  $250,000   was appropriated   at the  last  scission of   Parliament.

Lieutenant-Governor Sir Oliver Mowat  formally opened the first session of the  nineth Ontario Legislature on Wednesday afternoon. The hot weather prevented the opening from being the  brilliant affair it has usually been.  Many of the ladies appeared in sailor  hats" and short waists. Mr. F. E. A.  Evanturel was again elected to fill the  speaker's chair.  Miss Essie Thornton, of Peterborough,  was accidently shot through the neck  last Saturday night by a young fellow  named Archie Seymour, who was fooling  with an old gun in his back garden. A  shot went through the fence hitting Bliss  Thornton, who died on Tuesday from her  injuries.  The United States cheque for $473,000  was received this week was received this  week by the Department of Marine and  Fisheries. This was the amount of  damages adjudged by the Behring Sea  commission, to have been sustained by  the Canadian sealing fleet in consequence  of illegal seizure by American cruisers  prior to the Paris award.  The young actor, Herbert Wilkes j  Steward, has been awarded by the board  of the Royal Canadian Humane Association, the beautiful silver medal lonated  in honor of the Queen's Jubilee, by Lady  Grant, of Ottawa, for his prompt and  courageous rescue of Marion Robertson  from drowning at Haitian's Point, To-  ronto, on July 27th.  Mr. James Connell, of Brockville, Ont.,  while swimming in the St. Lawrence  was drowned on August 3rd. Several  people heard his cries and put out in  boats to his rescue but were too late.  He was an excellent swimmer, so it is  thought he must have taken cramps.  A peculiar disease is at work among  the cattle in Frontenac County. The  disease attacks cows in the eyes, which  bulge out and afterwards they become  blind. It also affects horses and even  chickens do not escape it. There is no  doubt but that it is contagious.  A Naval Reserve is to be organized  among the Newfoundland fishermen,  who will be drilled by special instructors  sent out from the Mother country.  George J. Goschen, 1st Lord of the Admiralty, is at the head of the scheme.  Special forts will be erected and the  men'"will each receive S50 for each  month. ���  ter.  a large amount of exercise is taken, a  much larger quantity of water will be  needed. Of course, our food contains a  portion of this needed liquid, probably  one-third, aiid, if a large quantity of  fruit and vegetables "are eaten",' a  smaller quantity of water is needed.  As a usual thing, women are the ones  who suffer most from an insufficiency of  water, and I want to urge all mo titers  with children too young to make their  wants known to be sure and give them  plenty of cool water to drink.  Constipation is largely the result of  an inadequate supply of water, and  many nervous troubles would be greatly benefitted by increasing the amount  of water drunk. It is a well-known  fact that the great .majority of people do  not drink enough water. The beneficial  effects derived from the various mineral  springs is in a great degree the result  of the large quantities of the water  which is required to be drunk. Of  course, the minerals are without doubt  very helpful in various diseases, but a  large amount must be taken in order to  obtain the desired results.  There is a diversityofopinion regarding the he.ilthfulnes.sof drinking water  while taking food at meals. Some assert that the practice is injurious, as it  dilutes the gastric juice, but from experiments that have been made this  seems to be an error, and I find that if  the food is of a dry nature a glassful of  water taken during the meal lias a  beneficial effect upon the digestion.  Hence, if one is thirsty while eating, I  think he may drink water until the  sensation is overcome. The thirst will  not be felt if the food contains a large  proportion of water, as in vegetables  and fruits. Hot water is usually to be  commended, for it quenches thirst in  many instances better than cold and it  also acts as an aid to digestion. It is a  well-known fact among physicians that  in catarrhal conditions of the stomach  hot water has very beneficial results.  The practice of drinking* ice water,  especially at meals, is reprehensible, for  it lowers the-temperature of the stomach  and so impairs digestion. It is much  better and safer to cool our drinking  water by placing* the vessel containing*  the water by the ice rather than immersing the ice in the water.  Sloean mineral Exports for ��Iuly.

We knew he was a  humourist before he made a sound.  His face was a deep rose color that  always denotes a florid complexion,  and as he sank into the cushions of  our old arm chair and threw his wistful gaze upward to where a bottle  entitled Extra Dry reposed underneath our Swiss clock he smiled as  only a man afflicted with humour  can. At this epoch of his plaid like  career Seneca G. was suffering from  great financial depression. We  assayed him and found that he went  GO cents in silver, 90 per cent, beer,  and a trace of better days. His stay  was short in the silvery Slocan, but  it was very vivid. He wandered  away to Nelson, became chief of  police, and wound up by becoming  addicted to matrimony, which has  resulted in the following sad paragraph that he writes from Sedro,  Wash.:  "Please mention that there was the  best-looking, 9-lb., redheaded chunk  ot humanity arrived at our house  yesterday. 'It' is of the male variety  and positively the cutest thing that  ever happened.���Yours fraternally,  Seneca G. Ketchum.  The Province, of Vancouver, is a  brilliant paper in some respects since  it came out daily. In copying our  mining news without credit it makes  us feel proud. It costs us plenty of  money and labor to gather the news  of the Slocan and nothing thrills us  more than to see it reproduced in a  great daily without any reference to  the paper that gave it birth. We  have great admiration for the Province owing to the wholesale manner  in which it does its work. It does  not take one or two little items but  the entire works. It does its work  like the noble and brave road agent,  and we take off onr hat to the genius  who edits its mining news with such  skill and scissors.  Rossland puts us in mind of a big  mug of freshly drawn beer. Blow  the froth off and some beer remains  in the bottom oi the mug In Rossland blow the iron caps and their  boosters away and we find two or  three mines and several prospects.  The principal business of the inhabitants is buying and selling stocks.  The lucky people will make money  by gambling on the winners and selling at the right time while the others  will have the experience. Rossland  is a great camp, but there is seme  country rock around it. It is not all  solid erold, as some people in Toronto  believed a year ago.  The Centre Star is reported sold to  the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate  of Toronto for $2,000,000. These  people evidently understand their  business, and if they keep on will  soon be the Barney Barnaties of B. C.  They can easily stock a big proposition like the Centre Star, and force  the stock to a point where it will pay  them to unload. Look at the War  Eagle now, and compare its value to  what it was when the Toronto syndicate took hold of it.  The London Illustrated News  prints views of Rossland and says  that that city is on the direct route to  the Klondike. That paper should  print some views of Dawson City and  say that it is on the direct route to  New Denver.  War Eagle stock is quoted at $2 70  which places the property at a value  of $5,400,000.

FUN   AND    M1SCKLLANKY.  A    DILAPIDATED    NATION.  The Spanish-American war is now  a matter of history, the peace proto  cole suinbitted by the United States  having been signed by Spain's representative on the 12th inst., and hostilities ordered stopped by both  governments. Thus one of the briefest wars in history between two great  nations has ended, and we can now  turn our gaze to the far east and  watch the great game being played  by Russia and England in China.  War clouds darken the horizon there,  but this is nothing unusual, and until  hostilities begin it is useless to take  the scare seriously.  Spain has suffered a crushing de-  teat.    It is a  vanquished  and badly  . dilapidated nation to-day, and cannot within the next century regain  tlie prestige lost in the Avar just  ended. Pride has carried the Spanish people along for many centuries.  Pride has been that nation's home  glory, and has done much to perpetu  ate the name of Spain as a nation  among nations, but it has also been  its greatest curse, and now that such  a crushing defeat has come upon it,  its stock and trade���pride���is depleted and it  must   necessarily  go  out of business,  at least on this hemisphere.  By the terms of the peace protocole  accepted by Spain the United S;ates  gets all that was demanded.  1. Spain will relinquish all claim  of sovereignity over the title to Cuba.  2. Puerto Rico and all other Spain-  ish islands in the West Indies and an  island in Ladrones, to be selected by  the United States, shall be ceded to  the latter.  3. The United States shall occupy  and hold the city, bay and harbor of  Manila, pending the conclusion of  the treaty of peace, which shall determine the control disposition and  government of the Philippines.  The belief that the number 13 is a  harbinger of ill luck is the most deeply  rooted and widespread of popular superstitions. It is of even more general  circulation than the prejudices against  Friday.  An emblem 'that fairly bristles with  the supposed unlucky number is the -25  cent Ipiece, or quarter dollar, of the  United States.  The 13 colonics that revolted against  English rule wore not handicapped in  the end by the fatefulness of the number. It was England that had the bad  number in that instance. That maybe  an argument for the believer in the  malignity of the number. But to the  American quarter of and its combinations of 13.  in the first place, the head on the  face of the coin is surrounded by 13  stars.  On the reverse side the words "quarter dollar" contains 13 letters.  There are 13 stars in the constellation  over the head of the eagle.  There are 13 letters in the inscription,  "E Pluribus Unum" on the streamer  that floats from the eagle's beak. There  are 13 feathers in each'wing of the eagle  and 13 feathers in its tail.  The lower part of the shield on the  eagle's breast is divided into 13 stripes.  There are 13 arrows in the sheaf held  in the right claw, and there are 13  leaves upon the olive branch held in the  left claw.

The man in business who will not  avail himself of the means provided by  a local paper for building up his own  business and the aggregate business of  his town is "cutting off his nose to spite  his face." He should advertise in his  local paper and aid tbe editor thereof  in drawing people to her trading points.  The best way to build up a town is to  stand by every man in the town who  d ics right. Whenever a man is doing  well, do not tear him down. All residents should be partners,not opponents.  In all likelihood the more business your  rival does the more you will do. Every  business man who treats his customers  honestly, courteously and fairly will get  his share, and the more business that  can be secured by the united effort the  better it will be for all. When a town  ceases to grow it begins to die, and the  more people try to kill each other in  their business the more readily will  utter ruin come to all. Stand together  for the advancement of every citizen  If a man shows ability to prosper do not  pull him back through jealousy,or weigh  him down through a cold indifference. |  ���Exeter (California) Ponnv Press.

Wood, lumber and timber are also  extensively exported. England is  Russia's best customer. The amount of  England's annual importation of the  above products (including grain) exceeds 8112,000,000.  In  minerals   Russia   is enormously  wealthy, but the mining lands are not  diffused throughout the empire but confined to definite areas.    Nor can  they  be said   to   be   energetically worked.  The great gold fields of the Ural mountains would not  pay  expenses as presently worked  were they not supplied  witli convict labor.  Owing to the heavy  import duty which is imposed on pig  iron now needed for the iron manufactures   of  the   empire it   is  nearly all  obtained at home,   but this amounts to  only   ���AU   pounds   per    inhabitant,    as  against 810 pounds  per inhabitant used  in   Britain.    Coal   is   very   abundant,  especially in the valley of the Donetz,  but firewood is so plentiful for domestic  purposes and  water power so plentiful  for heavy manufactures that the amount  of coal raised in all Russia is only one-  twelfth   that   raised.in Germany-  and  only one-twenty-fourth   that   raised in  Britain.    Over 2,2*r'O,(>U0 tons of coal  is  imported despite very heavy protective  duties.    Then; is one. mineral product,  however,   in   which   Russia   exeells all  other..European    countries..   This   is  petroleum.    The   oil   springs   on   the  Caspian sea .'produce an annual yield .of  crude petroleum of an average value of  SIr>,000,000. The value of the petroleum,  and   petroleum   products  exported   in  180:-' was over ��22,000.000.  Despite Russia's resources in farm  products and in minerals, yet owing to  the ignorance and degradation of her  people she is a poor country and her  exports are always more than'her imports. Her total wealth per inhabitant  is only ��H05, as against S780 per inhabitant for Germany, ��1,200 for France  and SI,ol0 for Great Britain and Ireland. Her total foreign trade is only $5  per inhabitant, whereas as the foreign  trade of her neighbor, Germany, is $35  per inhabitant. Her total internal trade  is only S"��0 per inhabitant, whereas,  even in Greece, the internal trade is  $85 per inhabitant, while in Germany  it is S1H0 per inhabitant, and in the  United States $215 per inhabitant. The  reason for all this is tlie lack of energy  and industry in the people. Their  earnings per'inhabitant average only 12  cents a day. Another reason is the lack  of modern' labor-saving devices. Com-  parin��" inhabitant with inhabitant,  Russia has only one-sixth of the steam  power which 'Germany has. One-half  of all the manufactures* of the country  are produced domestically; that is,  without motive  power   or   machinery.  characteristic Russian produce. Kieff  (249,000) is the center of the Russian  sugar refining* industry. Astrakhan  (113,000), on the Volga delta, is noted  for its sturgeon fisheries and its export  of caviare, amounting, it is said, to  Sl,500,000 yearly. Tula (111,000) is the  Sheffield of Russia. Even in 1828 there  were 600cutlery establishments in Tula,  but the manufacture was then principally domestic. It is now a city of  factories, for it stands on a large coal  and iron field. Nijni-Novgorod (99,000)  is noted for its fair, an Asiatic institution, which modern civilization will no  doubt soon disestablish. Once a year  merchants to the number of 200,01)0  come to Nijni-Novgorod from all over  Russia, and even from India and China,  to exchange their wares. The value of  the exchange sometimes amounts to  $100,000,000. Orenburg (74,000), on the  Ural* is the terminal depot of the caravan trade of Asiatic Russia.

Its area is immense.  More than one-seventh  of the land surface of the globle is included within its  compact borders.    Of this  vast territory  the area of European  Russia alone is  only a fourth ; but even  so it is larger  than the area of all other European states  put together.    The population of Russia  is  over  129,000,000,  of which over 106,-  000,000 belong to European Russia.    But  taking even European Russia this is a  population of only 54 to the square mile,  the lowest proportion in Kurope, except  in Sweden and Norway.    And the population is increasing.    The  birth  rate  is  the highest in the world.    And   though  the death   rate is very heavy, being 50  per cent, more than it is in England, the  increase from births is so  great that the  population doubles in 4(5 years.   There  is thus apparently a prospect that Russia  will, in the near future,  play an important part in   the  drama of nations, her  capacities and capabilities   for   growth  seem so prodigious.    And yet  there is a  reverse side to the picture.   Of the 100,-  000,000 inhabitants of European Russia  10,000,000 belong to a cultured, progressive class, quite the equal of any people  in Europe.    But the remainder are principally a low grade of peasantry, not long  removed  from  slavery.     Tbe  principal  occupation of these peasantry is farming.  But their farms are small, not more than  10 acres apiece, and the total  revenue  they get   from   them  does  not  average  more than   $05   a   year per  farm.    The  food of these peasantry  is the poorest in  Europe.    In the main  it consists of rye  bread and mushroom soup,  worth about  four cents a day.   Tbe  houses are often  mere   huts,   not  more   than   five  feet  square.    Women as well as men work in  the fields and   yet   the   total amount of  food raised is not more per head of population than  one-tenth  of what is raised  by the peasanty of  France.    The  value  of food raised per acre, too, is but little  more than one-third  of the average per  acre of all Europe.  The degradation of the peasantry of  Russia is not simply material. It is also  moral. In the language of a recent  traveler, "they are the drunkenest people in Europe!" The principal intoxicant is a sort of whisky called "vodka." j is tanning, and Russia leather,   with its  No industrv in Russia is fully up to the  needs of the people when judged by the  standards of other countries. For example, notwithstanding the severity of  the climate, only two pounds of raw  wool per inhabitant are consumed in  Russia's woolen manufactures, as  against seven pounds consumed in Germany, and the total annual value of all  manufactures is only 520per inhabitant,  as.ao-ainst ssii in Germany and S88 in  Britain. Notwithstanding these unfavorable comparisons, the factory industries of Russia are making progress  In 70 years the textile factories have  increased fivefold and in 30 years twofold. In 00 years the cotton.manufacturing industry lias increased sevenfold  and in L5 years' twofold. Until recently  Russia experted wool. Now she imports  more wool than she exports Ninety  years ago in Russia iron was dearer  than bread and the peasants used  wooden plowshares and left their horses  unsho 1. Now the consumption of hardware, though still per inhabitant the  .smal'est in all Europe, is yet in the  aggregate the fourth in Europe, al  though even so it is only two-uineths  what it is in Britain. Beet-root sugar  making is also a new industry, and  500,000 tons are made annually, the  number of sugar works being 245. The  beet-root crop of the country amounts  to nearly SO.OOo.OOO annually. But the  consumption of sugar per inhabitant is  only seven pounds annually, as against  1.8 pounds per inhabitant in Germany.  A universal industry throuffhout Russia  Fnt country !

Business is not always subject to the  beck and call of an individual, but there  are those -who always get business by  knowing* how to beckon or Iioav to call  for it.  With drunkenness exist  also dirtiness,  idleness, dishonesty and untruthfulness.  And   as   yet   little   has  been   done  to  ameliorate this degradation.    Ignorance  prevails everywhere.    Even of the .young  people of the peasant class more than 80  per cent,   can   neither read   nor   write.  There is no middle class.    The gulf  between the upper class and .the lower is  so wide as to   be absolutely impassable.  And for the most part the upper class is  quite content to have this state of affairs  continue.  There is, however, some hope for the  Alower classes of Russia. This is because  i of the prevalence among them, especially  in villages,  towns and cities, of a  communal    custom   in   which   self-restraint and self-government, are necessary conditions of existence    In every  branch   of common  industry   "artels"  are found; that is, communistic organizations, where all labor for a common  purse   in   accordance  with   rules and  regulations determined by the. members  of the   organizations.    '1'hese   "artels"  have done much toward increasing the  industry, the honesty, the truthfulness,  tlie thrift and also tin; sobriety of their  members.    They exist  throughout all  Russia, but in some parts more prevalent than in others.   And yet, Imwever,  they scarcely  affect the  character laud  condition of'the rural peasantry, aud it  is these who are  most in need of elevation.    It should be   said,   too,  that the  government   is    donig   something    fo  lessen the evil of drunkenness  Russia's principal business is agriculture. More than half her whole internal  trade is agriculture. Her agricultural  products are one and one-half times  greater than the products of her manufactures, and L0 times greater than her  mining products or her imports. And  though her production of grain per  acre is the lowest in till Europe except  Italy, Spain and Portugal, and her total  production of all food jiroducts per acre  by far the lowest in Europe (not more  than one-third that of Spain, which is  next lowest), yet she manages to export  a larger quantity of grain than any  other country in Europe, France only  sometimes excepted. Russia's export  of grain for some years past has averaged 260,000,000 bushels a year. Her  export of wheat alone has averaged  93,000,000 a year, or consideably more  than a fifth of the total wheat export of  the world. The explanation of this  enormous export of wheat from so poor  a country is that three-fourths of the  people live on rye. Other a<rricultural  exports (besides grain) are flax, hemp,  oil seed sake, linseed and grass seed,  butter, eggs,   hides and   hogs' bristles.  fragrant birch oil odor, is a highly prized commodity the world over. But the  amount manufactured is only 114,000  tons yearly and the quantity exported  is inconsiderable.  The most characteristic, physical feature  of Rurpean   Russia  is its flatness.  , In consequence its rivers are almost all  j navigable, and, as the most important  ! of them are interconnected1 by   canals,  ! the  facilities  for  transportation which  j they afford are very considerable.   Al-  | together the length' of  inland  naviga-  | tion   thus   afforded   amounts to nearly  | 47,000 miles.    This  abundance of navigation facilities has retarded the growth  bf railways, but tliere are  already 25.-  7?(i miles'of   finished   raihvay   in European   Russia  alone.    The total length  of raihvay   in all    Russia  built and in  building is 31,8-10 miles     The most important railway enterprise in the empire  is  the Trans-Siberian   railway,   which  will afford through communication from  the Baltic   to   the   Pacific, the shortest  possible   distance   between   these,   two  bodies of water being* 4,500 miles.    The  length of the railway will be-l,050 miles,  aim  its cost,  it   is   supposed,   will  be  S12t),00(),()0o.    It  is  to be  completed bv  j 1805.  I     St. l'etersburgh  (with suburbs 1,2(>7,-  ! 000*. the capital of Russia, is,   like most  I European capitals, an  important trade  j centre as well   as  tin; seat  of govern-  i ment.    Its  manufactures   are   general  ��� and numerous,  but  the  chief ones are  I those concerned  in   making munitions  j of war.    Until 1885 St. Petersburg was  I not a seaport,  but  in that year a canal  I was built   which   now permits vessels  drawing 22 feet of water to enter   its  docks.   Its harbor,   however,  is closed  with ice from November to May.    Near  St. Petersburg is Reval,the chfef cotton  port   of   Russia.    The   raw  cotton importation   of   Russia    averages   about  *'iO,000,oi)()   annually,   most 'of   which  comes direct   from   the   United States  Moscow (988,000), the ancient capital of  Russia, is also a great manufacturing  city, but its principal importance is derived from the fact that it  is the great  center of the internal  trade of  Russia.  Warsaw (015,000),  the capital of Polish  Russia, is a  great railway  ce-itre and  iffic  ope.  Lodz (3l5,00i)), also in Polish Russia, is  the great cotton manufacturing centre  of the empire. Odeasa (405,00()( is the  chief seaport of Russia. It has an immense export trade in grain, tallow,  iron, linseed, wool, hides, cordage, sailcloth, tar and beef. Riga (283,000) the  chief port of Russia on the Baltic has  a large export  trade  with England   in  A   view of the actual conditions of  health   under   a   substantially natural  manner of living among the natives of  Labrador was given by Lord Strathcona  and Mount Royal, chancellor of McGill  University,   in   an   address before the  Middlesex Hospital Medical School.   So  long*, the author   says,   as the   natives  keep to their own food and habits���they  live largely on meat and fish,  always  cooked, and upon wild berries and fruit  ���they generally   retain   their  teeth.  But  in case   of the   natives   from the  interior, who adopted' the   food of the  white men,  they soon lost their teeth,  and their lives "were often shortened.  Although the climate is severe and the  summer short, the country is healthy,  and no doubt the open air conduces to  freedom from disease.   A form of Turkish ar rather   vapor   bath has been  in  vogue among them as  far back as we  have any record.   They rig up a small  tent,  put  in  intensely  hot. stones, and  pour water  upon  tliein,  and then take  the bath,   which   is  regarded   as very  beneficial  in many complaints.    They  have decoctions of herbs, and understand   the   preparation   of   nourishing  foods, which are given in cases of failing- strength and vitality.   A decoction  made from   boiling- crushed  bones and  marrow is largely used in cases of lung-  disease.   Amputations are occasionally  performed by the natives themselves,  or   by   the   European   and    Canadian  residents,  in  a primitive way.    What  may be termed a  primitive and somewhat rude form of antiseptic treatment  was practiced in the district many years  before Lord Lister introduced his great  discovery.      For    the    treatment     of  wounds, ulcerated sores,  etc.,  a  pulp  was made by boiling the inner bark of  the juniper tree.    The liquor which resulted was used for washing and treating the wound,  and  the bark,  beaten  into a plastic, pliable mass, was applied  after   the   thorough   cleansing   of the  wound, so   as to  form  a soft cushion,  bending itself to every inequality of the  sore.    Scrupulous   cleanliness  was observed, and fresh material was used foi-  every application.    The incident shows  that while discoveries and inventions  are being made in the centers of the  highest civilization   they   may  yet be  practiced in a primitive way in distant  localities hard ofaecess. while the world  of science is still unaware of them.���  Popular Science Monthly.

In sleep tlie entire body, with all its  component parts and its various offices,  ceases from labor, like a machine which  has its fires banked and its wheels stopped. The body, like the machine, is  ready to start work again'Jit a moment's  notice, but for the time being- it is out  of commission.  Primarily, of course, sleep is a condition of the'brain, as by this organ all  impulses from the external world are  received, and from it are transmitted  all messages necessary to the performance of any desired act.  In fact to carry the simile still further,  the brain, as the center of the nervous  system, is the governor of the human  machinery, controlling all its movements and offices, and directing them  into an intelligent and useful channel  We can easily understand, then, what  must be the daily strain upon this great  center���greater even than that upon the  muscles which are called upon to do its  Work.  Sleep, then, is nature's opportunity  for adjusting the delicate mechanism of  the brain, and for repairing" the muscles  and re-stocking them with material  with which to do their work successfully.  .Si'een, in order to be beneficial, must  be profound and healthful. To this end  the greatest care should be exercised  to have the bedding comfortable and  clean, and the whole atmosphere of the  room pure and wholesome. The sleeper should not be disturbed until he  wakes of his own accord, unless there  is a chronic tendency to oversleep, in  which case a few lessons with the aid of  an-alann clock or a servant, combined  witii concientious effort on part of the  person himself, will usually effect a  cure.  Unless a.person is actually lazy and  in danger of contracting bad habits in  this respect, it is better"to allow him to  sleep at will. Especially is this true of  growing children.  In the earlier morning- hours, or after  one has been asleep for some time, nature has made great progress in her  work of repair, and should be allowed  to complete her work while the air is  pure and outside influences are at a  minimum.  Sleep that has been artificially induced is comparatively of little value. It  is true that the mind is relived of its  activity, but the various organs,-find  the impulses which tend to their nutrition, are also to an appreciable extent  paralyzed.���Youth's Companion.  Keeping    Kggs   Fresh.  Experiments have been made by  Director Strauch, of the agricultural  school in Niesse, Germany, with various methods Cor keeping eggs fresh. At  the beginning of July 20 fresh eggs  were treated by each method, and examined at the'end of February. The  results are given below :  Kept in brine: All unfit for use.

Despite the  easily demonstrable fact :  that 1900 is devisable  by  four, yet it is <  not a leap year.    This  information ma}* j  distress some of the ladies   who   have !  been waiting with patient resignation to j  exercise the high prerogative  which the \  law of custom has conferred up them.      |  By the same token it will be disap- J  pointing to that pitiful element of males j  who are too timid to stammer out im- j  portant propositions to the ladies and ���  have been fidgeting around the world, i  fondly hoping that in the last year of  the century eager members of the feminine gender would make bold to propose  matrimony.  But for" the canons set up by the  makers of the Julian calendar in 1582,  li)00 would be a leap year. To keep  things running right, it was agreed by  these wiseacres that a year ending a  century should not be bisextile, except  every fourth century. This is very rough  on the ladies, of course, and they have  good ground of 'complaint against the  tyrant men, who fixed things in this  way. Nevertheless, the condition cannot be remedied. The ladias got left in  the same way in 1700 and in 1800, but  all of those who can hang out until 2000  will be entitled to the unhampered exercise of their leap year prerogative, the  latter year ending a fourth century.  A writer in the Providence Journal  tells of a conversation he once had with  a wealthy and educated Central American coffee planter: ''His estate, upon  which more than half of his time was  spent, was 20 miles from town and post  office, and reached only by a bridle  path All of his coffee had to be sent to  shipping points by pack mule, and  household stores taken home in the  same way. I asked him if a carriage  road could not easily be built to tlie  district where he livecl. 'Certainly,' he  replied, 'but what would be the" use ?  What better way is there to travel than  by horseback?" We all love it, and  when we want to ride in carriages we  go to Europe or the States.' 'But,' 1  said, 'your coffee;would then be hauled  in wagons, and much expense and inconvenience be saved. And I suppose  you would want a postoffice nearer  home and more frequent mails.' He  laughed heartily. '1 assure you, my-1  dear sir,' he said", 'that we get'our mail  quite often enough. I always dread,tho  day on which it arrives. It means  work, for I have quite a correspondence. As to the coffee, there is profit  enouch already, so why not 'let the  mules and muleteers have the job?"'  F.

Negroes in the south have a habit of  sticking- matches, toothpicks, and cigarettes behind their ears, and it is a common thing- to see one of them, when  asked for a match, pull one out of the  closely kinked wool just over his ear.  Frequently they have a dozen or more  stowed away there. Not long ago an  Atlanta policemam. whose beat includes  "Rusty Row," a favorite resort for idle  negroes, had occasion to arrest a notorious vagrant, whose main occupation  was fighting and draining the beer kegs  left in front of barrooms.  This man, as usual, resisted arrest,  and attacked tho officer fiercely. The  officer saw that extreme measures were  necessary, and, drawing his club, aimed  a blow at the negro's head. The result  was as alarming as it was unexpected.  As the club came in contact with the  man's head, just over the left ear, there  was a cracking sound and from the  hair tongues of blue, sulphurous flame  shot out. The negro dropped to the  ground and the club fell from the  officer's nervel-ss hand, while a look of  wild-eyed amazement appeared on his  countenance. He had hit people with  the same club before; in fact,rather frequently, and blood  had sometimes fol-  Latest  novelties  in Dress Goods for  ���W ���*-%*��� -f n ry�� Spring and Sum-  +J^Jl  li!��^ merwear; ready-  S^f j, made     Clothing,  | inntflQ Neck wear, Hats,  V-ftVJ-V/iUl^ and Gaps, Boots  and Shoes ��� the  most complete stock in the lake section���at prices as low as it is possible  to make them.
