Array Vol  IV. No. 21.  -^r  NEW DENVER, B. C, FEBRUARY 18   1807.  Price $2.00 a Year.  >'  BEGINNING TO MOVE  The  Real  Estate  Market Greatly  Enlivened  BUILDING   TO   BEGIN   AT   ONCL  There is no longer any doubt about  New   Denver's  future.     The   most  pessimistic individual must stop his  croaking and crawl into the band  wagon or be left behind. "~  Last week the news was sent broad  cast that the Bank of Montreal had  established a branch at New Denver  This week we, are favored with an  other batch of valuable information.  The visit of the C.P.R. officials, and  the assurance given by them that  work would soon begin on the  wharves,. warehouses, ticket offices,  etc, of the company here, gave con  fidence to the few faltering;ones, and  things are shaping themselves for a  tremendous stride forward.  The real estate* market has shown  greater activity the past week or two  than for many "mon hs. Many tians  fers have beern made and speculators  , are growing, more numerous daily foi  New Denver, property. In addition  to the constant increasing demand for  mining property is the demand for  city lots on which to build.  J. C. Bolander has purchased of  Frank Fletcher five lots on the .orner  of Seventh and Union streets, and wili  as soon as the lumber can be laid  down, begin the erection of five  cottages. He will put upa handsome  . cottage'for himself on the corner.  "**���;���  Frank G. Lewis, of Montreal, has  purchased of Messrs. Black & McLennan two lots on Sixth street, and  will begin early construction of a  business block to be occupied as a  hardware and furniture store with  office rooms above.  The work of enlarging nnd renovat  ing the Newmarket will begin by  March 1.  Proprietor Delaney. of the Grand  Central will also begin at once the  erection of several additions to his  hotel.  It is expected that a train load of  lumber will be laid down at the siding  next week. Manager Genelle of the  Nakusp saw mill arrived in the city  yesterday to make such arrangements. He is prepared to provide all  the dry lumber to be demanded, at  figures that will make it unnecessary  to look elsewhere for building ma  terial.  The plans are beinsr drawn for  several*cottages and business blocks  to be put up at once, and before the  snow is off the ground the building  boom wili be on in full'blast.  NEW COMPANIES.  Th�� New Lake Boat.  Work on the C.P.R. boat at Rose-  bery is being pushed rapidly.

Rat Portage, Ont. ���The first dividend to be paid by any of the new  mining companies of the Lake of tlie  Woods was declared this week by the  Golden Gate company, which has paid  50 per cent, on its capital, not by  mining, but by making a sale to a  party of Englishmen. The company  has retained sufficient money to work  a number of claims that are consider-,  ed promising.  A large body of ore similar to that  of the general average of mines in  the Rossland, B.C., district, has been  tpund in western Algoma, in a locality  that has not been supposed to be  mineral bearing, and lying about  forty miles from the Canadian Pacific  road. Assays have shown the average value of rock tested to be $50.58.  The ore body so far disclosed is over  1,000 feet long and seems to be fully  sixty feet wide.  On a large lake named the Black  Sturgeon, located a few miles north  of Rat Portage, ore has been discovered and a new company has been  formed to work the find.  At the recent annual meeting of the  South African Development Syndicate  held in London, the chairman report  ed unfavorably on its South Afi ican  mines, but spoke of the Mikado mine,  Lake of the Woods, which it has acquired. He said the company had  sent but $2500 to the mine, and they  would probably send no more as the  property would pay for development  and machinery. They had returns  of ahout $50 to the ton on all ore that  had been milled, and they had 700  tons of ore broken out that would  Tbe Latest Returns From tlie Mine rv><l  Prospects of the Silvery Slocan.  An Alien Labor law is to be put^in  force in England.  The Rambler will pay a $20,000  dividend next month.  It is reported that Byron White will  erect a 403 ton concentrator at New  Denver.  S. S. Bailey has bonded a,group of  claims on Hell Roaring creek, in East  Kootenay.  J. E. Boss has bonded the Hunter  and Trapper groups in the Lardeau  for $15,000.  The Home Payne Co. will build a  concentrator in the Lardeau to treat  Great Northern ore.  The Vancouver & B. C. Exploration  Co. has purchased C. W, Callahan's  water rights on Gold and Eight Mile  Creeks.:  The stock of the Selkirk Mining  Company has been put on the market  at five cents a share, instead of 25  cents as stated last week.��� ;-  v   A company has been formed in  Vancouver to work the Regina, a  claim adjoining the Two Friends.  The capital stock is $200,000 with a  par value of 50 cents.  One outside paper says the Payne  is the richest mine in the Slocan,  another the Goodenough, another the  Ruth, another the Slocan Star, and so  on just according to circumstances.  J. D. Farrell and others have purchased an interest in the Lilian and  Reciprocity on Payne mountain.  Jack Thompson and Whittier own  half of these claims and a company  will be formed to WDrk them.

The new boat  wili make two round trips a day and  deliver Denver freight, express and  passengers at this wharf. The Siding  station will be used only for local  passenger traffic. The building of  the 35 miles of road from the lake to  Slocan crossing will be let in April,  probably in three contracts  County Court-  Judge For in will hold County Court  in New Denver on March 24.

Mark X  honor Sir Mark,  WASHING OUT GOLD,  C. D. Hnzzard Describes the Up-to-  Hydraulic  Process. .  Date  C. D. Hazzard, talking to a reporter of the  Journal in Minneapolis had the follOAving to say  about the hydraulic mines of California:  "The exploitation of a mine and .the process of  mining have changed greatly in the'last few  years," he explained. "Of course, in the '49 da3r-  everything was placer mining. First they wash ���  ed out the sands of the rivers and creeks, and thi n  they worked small gravel deposits at the foot oi  mountains and in shallow ravines. Those were  the poor men's days. Then came the times oi  quartz mining by shaft and tunnel, and that big  ' scale of placer known-as hydraulic mining,which  requires extensive water systems and muoh capi-  1al.  '���As for exploiting mines, the successful ones in  California ai"�� no longer exploited at all. A few  years ago gold mining was largely a gamble. A  company would make a location, make a show of  beginning mining on a big scale, issue handsomely printed, well-written, beautifully illustrated  prospectuses, engage clever promoters, float large  quantities of stock, and that olten would be the  extent of the operations.  "Nowadays mining is a cold-blooded business  proposition/ Men who make a business of developing mineral propeities for the betterment of  their own fortunes, examine properties carefully,  ��i),v little, go to work methodically and persistently'and calmly spend immeose sums of money before they realize a cent. In this way there have  been developed'by close corporations, individual  ownerships, or partners immensely wealthy mines  which have never bee a heard of in the mining  exchanges or by the world at large. Thoy publish no .statements, and there is lio way in which a  knowledge ot their work can be gained except  through The record* of ihe United States assay  ollice.  "Not far from my location in California there is  a quart,/, mine, the Piumas Kureka, which has  been conducted in that way by some Englishmen  fur thirtv-seven years. You never hear of that  mine, yet iu those years it has turned out ���?��(>,0:w,-  (��)���) of gold. Your-'CaJifor'riian wants to make his  money on the turn of'a. card. He can't statu! the  routine and delay of the.tedious slow-but-sure pro-  ��cess. The result is that the mining revival which  lias been going on in that state tor the last f,;w  vears is largely controlled by eastern and foreign  capitalists. ��� _rhe French and English seem to  realize better than our own people how extensive  is the. aunlerous wealth oi the Caliiornia mountains. Like one French company 1 know oi,the.>  are slowlv picking up and developing all the good  prospects'tney can get their hands on. Those  J(eople move carefully, have plenty of capital and  are building up properties which will enrich the  capitalists ol .their own country at the excuse of  America.  "The mines  of  which   I  am  sole owner are  known as the  Plumas Imperial Hydraulic  Gold  Mines and are located  near the little village of  Qhiucv. which is lost-in the riuun.tains of northern California, forty miles from a railroad  line.  You might sav that hydraulic mining consists in  searching out*with the aid of water the gold which  lies hidden in the gravel deposits on tlie tops oi  minimams which were once part of the beds oi  ancient rivers which ������ceased to flow long before  the Pliocene aire.   Millions of years ago the surface ol the earth .was uot cur up into valleys and  mountains, lulls and vales as it is now. Tlie great  e!iaunv--wrouirht bv wind and water and y-ih-anic  action in the passage of immense periods of time  have so changed the beds of ancient rivers that  the gravel deposits laid down in them are found  only on the tops of mountains. They are largely  the sources of the gold which is found m the  sands ol modern streams. The miners oi the early  days worked only along the modern rivers; . we  go to the source, to" the, beds of rivers which ceased  to be in prehistoric times.  " Wherever these deposits are found, low  enough so that water can'be used they are mined  by the terrific force of water under great gravity  pressure. It is a long story to tell it all, but the  water is brought from mountain streams, lakes  arid reservoirs in ditches, often many miles .in  length, and linally at the proper height above the  place where it is to be used is turned into pipes oi  double-riveted boiler iron through which it is conveyed to the point of attack on the Gravel deposit. By,the'-time It reaches the monitor or giant,  which is the name of the terminal apparatus, it  has an appalling power. It is the;;--directed  against the face oi the declivity, which it tears up  as though it were snow.. Immense rocks are  thrown aside like pieces of paper, and you might  say that by proper direction of the stream regular  landslides are induced. The fallen masses are  thoroughly washed out by the water and carried  away through cuts and tunnels into the gulches  below. On the.way the gold is picked up by  quick-silver by a simple process.  , "In developing my properly, which is known  as the Hungarian Mil gravel bank, I have built  16 miles of ditches and have, l�� miles of 22-iueh  double-riveted boiler iron pipe. The water supply  is such that we can operate ��the year round,  though most hydraulic, mines cannot. A hydraul  ic mine, as you can easily see, involves the expenditure nf much capital in.preparing for working,  but the actual working is very inexpensive as  compared: with quartz mining. The boxes in  which thegold is deposited are 'cleaned up' but  once a year, and you may well imagine the miner  finds it a very interesting process. I ca n 't undertake to'giye you a very.clear idea of what hydraulic mining is or give you a proper conception  of the:engineering skill and difficulties involved.  But when you are handling a stream of water  which has f.alien 400rfeet in a 22-inch nine and i?  -inch noz 13 you can  Why such a stream  is aii effective mountain destroyer at from 40U to  500 feet arid at 190 yards it would cut a man in  two.'   yy/.y.yy.y-'.^y--'.���'.'..  "Perhaps you will ���remember that hydraulic  mining was forbidden by theUnited1 States government for about 12 years on occount of the facf  that the debris it threw into th" mounlain streams  was fast blocking-tip navigable river channels,  besides ruiring neignboring properties. A few  years ago^ however, the resumption of hvdraul-  ickingwas permitted tinder certain conditions,  which in the main are that you must not permit  any of the debris to leave.''your own property.  That these conditions are observed is the work of  the debris commission, which keepsa sharp watch  on the miners and sees that they build dams to  hold the: debris arid give: the escaping water a  chance,;i> The debris commission tells me that" the  dam on my property and the reservoir which  hoi ds the debris areabsol utely 1 >erfect,  "Where water'cannot he brought to th.i gravel  deposits they are nb\v worked to some, extent by  tunnels and shafts' It was formerly considered  unprofitable. Some Scotch frien out in my part of  the country have been very successful in mining  by shafts;: They put down a shaft 500 feet to the  bottom of the gravel bed and are bringing the  gravel up and washingit with such success tl at'  they average a dollar profit on every yard take,,  out This is called the Thistle shaft. This reminds me that in hydraulic mining we always  attack the'bottom of the gravel bed', too���where it  crops out 011 the mountain side."  He was Skeptical.  Boston Courier.

The fools don't all go to Denver town,  Nor do, they all to the mines come down;  Most of us all have in our day,  In some sort of shape, some kind of way,  Painted the town with the old stuff,  Dipped in stocks, made some bluff,  Mixed wines old and new,.  Got caught in wedlock by a shrew,  Stayed out all night, tight,  polled home in" the morning light,  With crumpled tie and torn clawhammer,  And woke up next morning with a.'katzcnjammer.'  And walked, yes.: us, how we walked!  Now don't try to yank every bun,  Don't try to have all the fun,  Don't think you Iciioav it all,  Don't think that real estate won't fall,  Don't try to bluff on an ace,  Don't get stuck on a pretty face.  Don't believe every jay's talk,  For if you do���  You can bet your sweet life you'll walk."  A   LAW   URGENTLY   NEEDED.  The way in which a law primarily founded upon  the-'principles of equity can be distorted into a  a weapon against the honest toilers of a neighboring and friendly country by the perverted zeal of  a few government officials anxious to make pollt"  leal capital for themselves by pushing Its provisions to the utmost, is proved by the recent  introduction of the Corliss amendments to the  Alien Labor Law, which aim at absolutely prohibiting Canadians from securing employment in  the United States, and at deporting those who are  already working there.  When the Allen Labor was first enacted, Canada did not enter into the ideas of its framers at all.  The law was Intended to prevent trusts and large  employers of unskilled labor from sending to  Europe for large batches of Slavs, Poles and Huns  to take tbe place of American laborers. It was  never intended to prevent English-speaking men  and women from seeking an honest living across  the border. It remained for men of the De Barry  and Mahony class to extend and pervert its meaning until to-day the uncouth half-educated foreigners can pour unmolested into the United  States, while tne educated and law-abiding Canadian is ruthlessly hunted out and deported. All  this time Canada does not protest. We watch  American miners and wbrkingmen coolly invading our country in swarms , and never grumble,  il" our own people have to stand to one side to give  them room. And we put up patiently with all  the slights and slurs that always fall to the lot of  the uncomplaining.  Now, the matter has to a point where it is worth  enquiring whether this policy of abject submission had not better be abandoned. The necessity  ior legislation of this kind is much more marked  la tlie  Dust, Busted.  The poem printed below -will be appreciated by  many of the boys in the Slocan. who in days,  gone past have blown in their money in the same  way aud been forced to walk in the dust for the  lack of that article. The incident did not happen  on any ol the roads that lead to New Denver, but  away down in Shasta county, California, many  years ago in a little town called Denver or Mule  town. The roads leading from Muleto wu down  through the valley of Sacremento river were  then, as they are yet> probably the dustiest in  California, and to follow behind a freight "outfit"  tor any considerable distance would certainly be  a great punishment.     ,  "'-���������"' walk." yy.'"  Up the dusty road from Denver town,  To wherethe mines their treasures hide,  The road is long and many miles        ,  The golden store and town divide,  A oig the road one summer day  There toiled a tired man,  Begrimed with dust, the weary way  He cussed, as some folks can.  The stranger hailed a passing team  That slowly dragged its load along,  His hail raised up the teamster old,  And cheeked his merry song.  '���"Say, stranger.

American workingmen have invaded our territory  much more extensively than Canadians have  theirs. British Columbia is full of 'miners who  have come to Canada from Montana, Colorado and  other mining States,most of them under engagement before reaching the country. Further,these  American miners have precisely the same privil-  edges as Canadians in the preemption of mining  locations. If the Americans will not allow foreigners to own property in their country, why  should we allow them to own property iri Canada?  why should we go f urtner than this and give them  valuable priviledges for nothing? Any American citizen can come iuto British Columbia and  claim hundreds and thousands of acres by merely  taking out a sj>5 licence, the same as Canadians do.  The mineral wealth of British Columbia appears  to belong to the Americans as much as it does to  us. Is It not time our Government devised some  legislation W discriminate against foreigners in  regard to our natural resources as well as in re  gard to the labor that rightly belorgs to our own  .people.'/,' . .'V:; :.7-r  Canadians have certainly some rights that Americans are bound to respect, and possibly, if we  changed our policy of quiet submission for a more  vigorous and determined line of action, we should  at least command more respect. Our attempts at  conciiliation have been met with harsh and arbitrary enactments levelled deliberately at our  neople. Our workingmen will shortly not be allowed io even earn an honest living within their  borders. Is it not time, then, that steps were taken  to keep Canada for Canadians, and to initiate  legislation which, if not quite as drastic as those  contained in the American enactments, will yet  be sufficiently vigorous to protect our nights ?  Nothing is evidently to be gained by inaction.���  Montreal Trade Review.  ^___g_S  HBBS_?B-_B_j_  MITH, DEAN & GO.  MINING & REAL ESTATE BROKERS.  ROSSLAND  G.  Wont Employ Canadians.

Men of reputation and good standing  in Canada should be careful how they  lend their names to stock companies.  There are many promoters in the  west ravenous enough to rob a nest of |  young wolves, and nice, inexperienced  tenderfeet with good names, who are  willing to take stock for the use of  their names are iust the kind of  suckers these mineral pirates are  after.  \.  It is a great relief for us to know  that New Denver will have a bank.  For some time we have been worried  about the money that we have had  buried in the ink keg, and now when  the bank lifts the wicket we will be  ready with $10 to help them along,  and prove to the world how generous  the mining men of the Slocan have  been to us for the hundreds of times  r-  we have written up their properties.  A lady being confined in Buffalo,  N. Y., the other day, sent in great  haste for a Canadian lady to come  -over and wet nurse her child.    Just  as she got off the train DeBarry's gang  arrested the nurse and in spite of the  remonstrances of the father, who said  the child   would die   without proper  nourishment the gang threatened to  arrest him if he did not shut up, and  escorted the lady out of the country.

Steele, of the North-west  Mounted Police at Fort McLeod, is  president. The capital stock of the  company is $300,000, and part of the  stock has been placed upon the market at par value, 25 cents. At this  rate the price set upon a trio of prospects is an admirable display of nerve  on the part of the promoters.  However, we  have nothing to say  about the price.    We expect gall in  this country, although we have never  been able to stake any, owing to the  excessive competition.     But we do  object to companies using deception  in order to sell their stock. ��� This the  Ibex   company  or   their   agent   in  Winnipeg is doing    We find in the  Commercial   of  that  city a glaring  announcement that the claims of this  company are in the Slocan Mining  division, of West Kootenay.

TO   THE    SLOCAN,    OR    BUST!  Vancouver, Feb. 13.    Parliament has once  more convened at Victoria, but the old buildings  have yet to do service for the new and unfinished  structures.* The eyes of the mining, world and of  corporations generally are directed thither, for  the legislation  pending is of great   moment.  Length was the one chief feature in the-speech  from the  throne, the subject matter showing  more blandishments than reality.   In the detailed  accounts for the past year, and laid on the table,  there is shown an increase of revenue, but this is  almost entirely due to the expansion of the mining  industry in West Kootenay.    Among the Government legislation to be brought in will be the  amendment of the Mineral Act touching thein:  corporation of companies and the use of mining  licenses.   Uuder the first heading the new law, as  drafted by the Chief Justice, ts very strict and to  the point, and is a decided step towards bona fide  mining.   Premier Turner, uuder the second caption,  announces himself  as in  favor of doing  away with the licenses  for men working on cr  about the mines of the province, reserving the  license only for those who propose prospecting  and owning pi'operty.   It is quite probable, too,  that an alien law will be passed, conserving to  Britishers alone the right to prospect and own  claims,   J. M. Kellie's-M. P.

C. Corbin, who was robbing mineral  claims of timber.   It is currently reported that  F. C. Cotton, one ofthe members from Vancouver,  is to renounce the Opposition, and throw in his  lot with the Government.  A. J. Murphy and J. Gilhooley, both from New  Denver were registered here during the week. The  former was interested in the recent sale of the  Alamo basin properties to the Evans syndicate.  Mr. Gilhooley succeeded in syndicating the Iron  Horse, on Ten Mile. He spoke most hopefully of  his bond on the Lillie B. group, on Springer,  which he thought the best projjerty hi the camp.  The ledge- will be tapped in a day or so. i  Vancouver parties have organized the Rams  dall Mining ��� Milling Co. to operate ihe Sapphire  and Gem claims, adjoining the Washington  group, in the Slocan. Mr. Ramsdall was formerly  manager of the Moodyville lumber mill. As a s  Irom the Gem group give 210 ozs. silver aud 70��/o  lead. The property will be put on a shipping  basis thi3 winter.  - F. Aug. Hoinze is to build a refinery to his  smelter plant at Trail. He favors strongly an export duty on all ores, so as to encourage the  smelting industry of Canada.  North Fork of Carpenter is attracting considerable attention. The bond of $25,000 on the Roulette group has been taken up and shipments are  to be made regularly. Interested parties predict  that the Cordelia, So Jo, London and Pheonix  groups will also be early and steady shippers,  Hewitt Lostbck, M. P., J. Coultart and A.  Martin of Victiria have incorporated the Kootenay Lumber Co. at $100,000, with head offices at  Victoria. Thev will acquire and operate on an  extensive scale the business of the Lumber company at Lardeau,  P, Evans of this city has bonded a half interest  in the United Empire, on Ten Mile creek, adjoining the Iron Horse. ��� A large amount of development work will be  done on the Empire in the  .spring.  Another carload of ore from the Two Friends  passed through on Sunday, billed for the Tacoma  smelter.  A. syndicate or ten  take over the bond  Gillvray on the Iron Horse, on Ten Mile. The  parties in the scheme are composed oi the strongest  fiuanciors in the city. Already >53jo has,been ex  pended on the ciaiiri arid much more is to be advanced for development purposes. Once the  Enterprise vein is tapped shipments will be made  regularly. There is a growing ieeling among  mining men for properties in the vicinity of tht  great mines on Ten Mile and Springer creek.  The Town3end, adjoining the Two priends,and  owned principally by Frank Granville, is to be  stocked in a close corporation. McKinnon and  DeBeck, of Golden Cache fame, are the promoters.  XV, Callanan, oflNew Denver, has been in town  this week, havinar come down on business in connection with the lawsuit over the Mollie Gibson  group on Kokanee creek. McPhillips and  Williams are backing liis claim- to the property,  and they say he has the only title to the properties.  In the Supreme Court yesterday, before Judge  Bole, Callanan got leave to serve George et al with  an ex-Juris writ. This is tlie first step in the  tight. While here Mr. Callanan gave a 3) day  option on the Alma group, adjoining the Lillie B.,  on Springer, for ^30,000.  The share market this week shows no improvement over that of a week ago. Bondholder is  steady, the nearness to the ledge in the main tunnel having a tendency to strengthen the shares.  Prominent shareholders have been quietly buying  up shares during the week. Two Friends keos  firm, as do all Slocan st >ck?. Orphan Boy, in h ���  Big Bend, has been ireely mentioned, nut tiie  quotations are ragged.

Maud Muller, on a summer's day  Mounted her wheel and rode away.  Singing, she rode, and her merry glee  Frightened the sparrow:from his tree.  But when she was several miles from towu,  Upon the hill-slope, coasting���'down,  The sweet son g died and a vague u n rest  And a sort of. terror filled her: breast���  A fear that she hardly dared to own,  For what if her wheel should strike a stone ?  The Judge scorched swiftly down the road-  Just then she heard his tire explode.  He canted his wheel into the shade  Of the apple trees; to await the maid,  And he asked her if she would kindly loan  Her pump to him, as he'd lost his own.  And she mushed as she gave it. looking down  At her feet, once hid by,a trailing gown.  Then said the Jndge. as he pumped away,  "'Tis very fine weather we're having to-day."  He spoke of the grass and flowers and trees,  . Of twenty-mile runs and centnries;  But the tire was fixed, alac-a-day!  The Judge remounted and rode awaj.  Maud Muller looked and sighed, "Ah me!  That I the Judge's bride might be,  My father should have a brand new wheel  Of tha costiliest make and the finest steel,  And I'd give one to Ma of tlie same design,  So that slie'd cease tb borrow mine."  The Judge looked back as he cllmed the hill  And saw Maud Muller standing there still.  " A prettier face and a form more fair  I've seldom gazed at, I declare!��� r.  Would she were mine, adT to-day  Could make her put those bloomers away!"  But he thought of his sisters proud and cold  c And shuddered to think how they would scold.'  H>. married a wife of richest dower  Who had riever.seccumb ;d to the bloomei's power;  Yet oft, while watching the-sntioak wreaths curl,  He thought of that freckled bloomer girl.  She married a man who clerked in a store,  And many ceudren played round her door,  But still of the Judge she often thought,  And sighed o'er the loss that her bloomers had  wrought. ������"  Alas for the Judge!   Alas for the maid!  Dreams were their only stock in trade.  Ah, Avell! For usallhope still remain s���  For tbe bloomer girl and the man of brains,  And in the hereafter bloomei's may  Be hot allowed to block the way. .  ���The: Standard Designer.  "Veil, den, If you vant anodder, go to de duyvll  and ged it."  Did the hag take him at his word ? She left the  shop, and from that time it seemed as if poor  Voickertwas bewitched, indeed, for his cakes  were stolen ; his bread was so light that it went  up the chimney, when it was not so heavy that it  fell through the' oven; invisible hands plucked  bricks from that same oven and pelted him until  , he Avas blue; his wife became deaf, his children  went unkempt and his "trade went elsewhere.  Thrice the old woman reappeared, and each time  was sent anew to the devil; but at last, in despair,  the baker called on Saint Nieolans to come and  advise him. His call was answered with startling  quickness, for, almost while he was making it.the  venerable patron of Dutch feasts stood before  him. The good soul advised the trembling man  to be more generous in his dealings witn his  fellows, and after a lecture on cliarity lie vanished, when,Jlo! the old woman was there in his  place.  She repeatedlier demand for one more cake,  and Nolckert San Pieterson. etc., gave it, whereupon she exclaimed, -'The spell is broken, and  from this time a dozen is thirteen." Taking from  the counter a gingerbread effigy of St. Nlcolons,  she made the astonished Dutchman lay his hand  upon it and swear to give more liberal measure in  the future. So, until thirteen new States arose  from the ruins of the Colonies���when the shrewd  Yankees restored the original measure���thirteen  made a baker's dozen.

I looked upon that tomb and I thought about the  career of. the greatest soldier of modern times.  In imagination 1 could see him walking up arid,  down the banks of the Seine, contemplating suicide.       }  I could see him at Toulon. I could see him at  Paris puttingdown the mob. I could see him  crossing the bridge at Lodi, with the tri-color in  his hand. ,   " , ��� -   .  I saw him in Egypt fighting battles under the  shadoAvs of the pyramids. I saAV him conquer the  Alps and mingle the eagles of France Avith the  eagles of Italy.  " 1 saw him at Marengo, I saAv him in Austerlitz  ���1 saw him in Russia Avhere the infantry of the  snow and the Masts smote legions, Avhere death  rode, the icy Avinds of Avinter:���I saw him al  Leipsic hurled back upon Paris���banished. ���  I saAV him escape frnmElba and retake (an  empire by the force of his genius. I saw him on  the held of Waterloo, Avhen fate and chance combined to wreck the fortunes of the former king.  , I saAV him at St. Helena, with his hands behind  his backgazingout upon the'sad and scbmn, sea  and I thought of all the widows he had made���ot  all the orphans, of all the tears1 that had been shed  for his glory/, and I thought-of tho woman,-'the  only woman Avhohad eA^er loA^ed him.pushed from  his heart by the cold hand of ambition, and I  thoug t e.s I g.u_ed that I would rather h.- vebeen a  Fiench peasant, aiid AVorn wooden 'shoes, and  lived in a little hut with the vine running over the  door, and the purple grapes groAving red in the  , amorous kisses of the autumn sun.

Memory is a gift that seems to he-very unevenly  distributed. A kindly^ well-meaning, highly  educated man���a-clergyman, we will say���may  hardly be able to remember his own name, Avhile  here and there some Tom,-Dick or Harry Avill  amuse himself and excite the Avonder of the  crowd by performing memonic feats as surprising  as they are useless. A Western journal reports a  Avellkiiown railroad man assaying: '  "Iknewaman Avhose memory of car numbers  was something reallyremarkable. When a train  whistled into the platform;' and without either  book or pencil, .would stand and watch the cars go  by.    '-. ������: /.-���. ,.'.-    ..'..������.; .  - :   .  If anyone Avas standing near, he would converse  upon whatever subjectoccured,,and when the conversation was ended he Avould step inside the office  and make a complete and accurate record of the  train, beginning Avith the first car and ending  wile the caboose.  .--Sometimes, just to test him, we would get him  to began at the caboose and write the numbers the  other way, or else begin in the middle of the train  and Avork both ways. He never made a mistake  that I remember. Car numbers, the names of  roads to Avhlcli they belonged, and their relative  positions in the train would all be recorded accurately.  What Cured   Him.  The taciturnity of baekAvoodsmen, says Youth's  Companion, used to be much illustrated by American writers, but iioav, perhaps because backAvcods-  men are to few too form as conspicuous a national  element as formerly, their peculiarities are not  , often mentioned. From Canada, which still has-  A'-ast areas of almost unbroken forest, Ave receive  the following verbatum report of a conversation  betAveen a city sportsman and his guide, Bill Buck  shaw:  You have klled moose, Bill, I suppose ?

An amusing story is gi\-en in the Ladies' Pictorial ol a little gin who had been very naughty,  so that the aunt whom she Avas visiting had to  punish her.  When she came to say her prayers at night her  little mind was still full of Avrath against her aunt,  but yet the child did not quite like to leave her  name ont of her evening devotions, so she compromised matters bv saying: "Pray, God, bless  father and mother;'' then after a pause, she added' "and bless Aunt Julia, too, but not much."  It is perhaps natural that little children should  expect their small, supplications to be answered  literally. We can sympathize Avith the small boy  over his sums, who said to his governess in a  i.uzzled, hali indignant A-oice :  ���'I can't do-my sums, I can't; and I did ask God  ii> help me, and He's in;ide three mistakes already."
