A    CHAI'TKK    ON     Slvl-NlvS.  It is an old saw that says, "Seeing   is  believing, feeding is the  naked  truth."  Not so   in  our  relation   to   the  skunk  family     One would hardly believe that  an animal so innocent  appearing,  and  with a coat of fur so  glossy  and   long,  could be guilty of casting to  the  winds  a stench   so  potent  and  disgusting as  that einitecl from the anal glands of the  skunk.    One, does not have  to  see  nor  yet feel the animal to be impressed with  his or her  presence.    And,  yet,   in   its  native haunts, it is as playful and harmless as a kitten.    The  skunk   does   not  emit its nauseous odor unless assailed  by   an   enemy,   and  one might  sleep  under your  bed   for  months and   you  would never know of its presence.   But  attack the little brute,   and   it  immediately   turns  loose  its  odorous arsenal  and  sends broadcast volley after volley  from its storage battery.  Some nights ago two of these animals  passed through New Denver and left  their cards. Several citizens, with  guns in hand, dressed only in their  night garments, turned out to intercept  the intruders, but the more noise they  made the worse the. skunks impregnated  the atmosphere with their Florida water,  and the task of killing them was given  up..

The balance, of the  party rushed to his rescue, and  by   the  time all were again on shore,  the  lake  staggered   as  though   it  were jagged.  The subsequent events consisted of wet  clothes   hanging   over   a   cook  stove,  while a mad   Chinaman   sang  this  refrain:  "Nelson  man, dam foolee. come  fishee, fall in lakee,   hang  him   clothes  ovel stove,   dlip in   soup,    boalders  all  get dluuk.

The amount  coming  from  each mine, is not known, but the  major  portion is from  the  North   Star.    It is  not unlikely that the Sullivan's  output  in  three months' time  will  equal  the  present output of the  North  Star,  and  the shipments will be -in   less  than  200  cars per month from both 'mines, which  will average net to them, at a moderate  estimate, ���?l-l per ton.    At that rate the  shipment of the  past  month,  allowing-   ���  1.30 cars, 22 tons to the car,   must  have  netted returns of not less  than  810,000,  and this is believed to-be a very moderate estimate, under  rather  than   over.

Last Sunday there was a hybrid  game of baseball in the city, although the daily papers ignored  the fact in their Monday editions.  The game was between Nelson and  a mixed club of men and women  known as the Boston Bloomers.  The best part of the exhibition was  the gate receipts. The receipts  must have been over ��o00. as the  grand stands were crowded, nearly  one-hftlI' of the spectators being  feminine. As a. curiosity the game  was all'right, but as an exhibition  of scientific ball 'i"if""was simply  eultus.

The  Mining Journal of London has summarized the report in an admirable editorial  article, which not only gives the cardinal  points of the report,   but .also  suggests  the causers of the.  poor  showing1  made.  The tone of the. editorial  is   not  especially buoyant, but, as an explanation of  the   probable    feeling   of   tlie   United  Kingdom on the. subject,it is well worth  , reading.    In part it is as follows:    The  bulk of what, is now issued  in  its   final  form has already been presented to   tlie  world iu the shape of preliminary statistical   tables;   nevertheless,  much   fresh  light is thrown upon the figures by their  re-arrangement in this complete report.
