There will be a concert held in Mc-  Kinnon's Hall on St. Patrick's night,  the 17th of March, and Silverton intends  to do itself proud on this occasion. New  Denverites are cordially invited to attend.  A shipment of several tons of ore from  the Capella is now sacked ready to be  packed to the wharf. It will be sent  down the hill in a few days. Ore is  showing in the face of the tunnel and in  the winze.  Upwards of 100 men are employed on  the Payne.  The Hartney is working on ore in  each opening.  There are 35 men employed on the  Last Chance.  Operations have been resumed on the  Whitewater mine.  Three hundred tons of ore was shipped out by the Payne last week.  The Enterprise ore is being sacked  and shipped to the Everett smelter in  four-carload lots.

Brilliant    SuccesH   of Thursday   JfigUt's  Function.  Surely the ball given by the local  lodge Knis'lits of Pythias,last Thursday  night, was a brilliant success It surpassed any of the previous functions  given by the Order. The Knights have  a standing reputation for their entertainments, but the most sanguine of the  committee never expected the full measure of success that crowned their efforts  on Thursday. And, as one of the Sandon visitors remarked, "Why, they  dress better in New Denver than they  do even in Nelson."  The attendance of outside visitors  was large, much larger than is usual  with dances given anywhere. From  Sandon the brethren turned out in  force; Silverton sent a large and enthusiastic delegation; Slocan City was represented by a full quota of youth and  beauty; and Nelson also sent several representatives, among whom, attired in  their uniforms were Captain J. Malone  and First Lieutenant C. A. Prosser, of  the Uniform Rank of that city. The  townspeople were out en masse, so altogether the ballroom was crowded.  Everybody had a thoroughly good time  and all were satisfied. In itself the  Castle Hall, where the dance was held,  was profusely decorated, the flags and  bunting used lending additional color  to the animated and handsomely attired  throng on the floor  Bro. J. H. Millward and wife, now of  Nelson, assisted by Prof. Zimmerman,  of Silverton, furnished the music, and  it was a rare treat, giving entire satisfaction, and contributing so much to the  enjoyment of the merry-makers. A  programme of 4.-3 numbers was given,  taking almost the entire night to dispose of it, but the crowd stayed with it  to the end. The supper was given at  the Newmarket, 6.1 couples being accommodated. It is satisfactory to know  that the Knights have a substantial  cash balance over all expenses, for  which the committee are to be credited,  EIGHT-HOUR   LAW.  Strong Opinion Expressed by ji Montreal  Paper.'  In a recent issue the Montreal Herald said:���  "Despite the denial of the president  of the War Eagle and the general manager of the Le Roi that there was any  connection between their closing down  and the agitation against the eight  hour law, there are not wanting evidences of concerted action on the part  WISEAND@THERW.SEl  HAPPT   >'EW   ZEALAND.  g?

The management of the Hall  Mines and smelter openly declared that  they were closing on this account. The  engineer in charge of the Dominion  Copper Company's mines in the Boundary, in announcing ��� the closing of the  whole of their mines, says: 'I got instructions from the East (which means  from Mackenzie & Mann, who hold a  controlling interest) to follow the lead  of the Kootenay mines on account of  the eight hour law.' These are new  accessions to the ranks of those who,  ever since the passing of the eight hour  law a year ago,   have  thrown  their  The Nelson Minstrels will tour the  Slocan on behalf of the Mansion House  fund, New Denver being one of the  show towns. The Nelson military band,  of which J. H. Millward is leader, wil  accompany the coons.  With all the properties about New  Denver showing up so well, and the outlook so encouraging for a good list of  permanent shippers, the future of the  town is growing brighter daily, and  there is no doubt the present revival already felt will be experienced as a permanent thing, with ever-increasing magnitude.  It is a forlorn hope, but it is this papers duty, we presume, to ask our magnanimous transportation lords if the  traveling public is not entitled to at  least the accommodation of a box car  or packing box at the Siding station.  If it takes as long, in proportion, for the  C. P. R. to earn money enough to build  a station as it did to buy a second-hand  stove without legs, we may never live  long enough to see any good come from  our efforts, but for the good of our children's children we open the campaign  and respectfully demand and humbly  plead and earnest pray and will ever pray  for a station at the Siding.

The British Columbia Review draws  the attention of London capitalists to  Canada as a field for investment in preference to Australia.    It says;  The gold production of Western Australia during 1899 was roughly speaking  S32,000,000; the gold production of Canada for  the same period was roughly  speaking $18,000,000.    If the amount of  capital sunk  in  the two countries be  compared, Canada's ��18,000,000 must be  returning hundred to one better dividends than  Western  Australia's $32,-  000,000.    If   silver,   lead,   copper and  nickel be added to make a fair basis of  comparison,  because the minerals are  are mined in  conjunction with gold   m  Canada, then Canada's output is superior to that of Western Australia.    Yet  Canada's new year in mining is greeted  with a lugubrious lowering of the voice  and dropping of  the   eyes.    Western  Australia's is greeted with a fanfaronade  of trumpets.    As a general rule the proportion of interest shown in Canadian  and West Australian mining is as  two  lines to two columns.    Yet the output  of the two  countries is practically the  same with a more rapid rate of progress  a higher degree of science, a more versified selection of resources, a more de"  termined character of local enterprise,  and a more permanent and stable future  visible   in   Canada.    Things   are   not  necessarily untrue that are not gener-  allv recognized.  There was a guest at the dinner table  at the Blanque's the other night, a gentleman of some considerable note,whom  the Blanques were particularly desirous  of pleasing. The visitor is the possessor of a somewhat luxuriant lot of  whiskers and a good deal of tangled  hair.  At the table was young Tommy  Blanque, aged 5, whose behavior is usually so exemplary that he was permitted  to come to dinner. The Blanques are  proud of Tommy.  Tommy watched the guest with a fascinated air. But pretty soon he blurte-  out:  "Say, mamma, doesn't that gentled  man look like Major?"  "Hush, Tommy," whispered his  mother.  "What did the little man inquire?''  spoke up the visitor.  "I said you looked like Major," replied Tommy promptly.  '���Tommy, be quiet," cried his mother.  "Some military friend, eh?" said the  guest, affably. "And who is Major, my  little man?"  Tommy's mamma made an ineffectual  attempt to stop him, but it came too  late.  "He's my dog," said Tommy.  Whereupon his mother promptly banished him in sobbing disgrace.  mines idle,scattered their workmen and  deprived their shareholders of the���in  some cases���much needed dividends.  "In discussing the question it must  not be forgotten that the object of the  Mine Owner's Association, as boldly declared, is twofold���to secure the repeal  of the abnoxious law and to crush the  minors' union. The former- is within'  the range of possibility, the latter pro-.'  bably not. It is too late in the day to  deny to workmen the same right to organize and co-operate as is claimed and  exercised by employers. Thirty years  ago conservative employers of labor  accustomed to rule with an iron rod believed that trades unions were only a  passing fad. But Avith ill grace they  accepted the inevitable.  "Unions are legitimate organizations,  so extensive in their scope and so sensitive in their operation,! that to touch  one part is to affect all, and other labor  organizations on this continent that  would be disposed to rally to the support of one, however feeble, if its right  to 'exist.were called into question.  "The eight hour law is another matter altogether, one on , which there may  be different opinions, and one about  which it is quite proper to fight if the  campaign be properly conducted. In  passing this law, the government was  only putting itself in line with the Imperial government, which ten years ago  decided that eight hours was long  enough for men to work under ground,  Canadians should not need lessons in  humanity either from the Mother Country or the western States, where for  years the miner  has enjoyed the bless.  The gold standard casts its blight over  New Zealand as well as over all of what  are   known    as    th9    "civilized"   and  "christianized" countries of the world,  but the people there have applied a partial remedy in the shape of a postal savings bank and the government loans to  the people at a low rate of interest. The  horror with which the daily newspapers  and magazines  of the aforesaid  "civilized" and "christianized" countries, our  own Canada included,  view this proposition becomes laughable when one observes ' how   smoothly and beneficially  the scheme works in New Zealand and  how everybody there upholds   it as a  common   sense   business    proposition.  Other schemes now firmly established  in New Zealand are the following:  The railway and telegraph lines are  owned by the government.  The graduated land taxis in operation,  the large land owners the heaviest. If  the owner is dissatisfied, the government  will buy the land at  the aisessed value.  Strikee are avoided by government  board of arbitration.  All stores are closed by law at a certain hour. The merchants say they do  not lose by it. A weekly half holiday  for employes is compulsory.  The factory laws do away with the  system of sweating.  Every man' or woman  over the age of  65 without means of support draws a  pension, the maximum being $90a year.  It is expected that better provisions will  be made for the helpless  aged   in  the  near future.  A government life insurance bureau is  in operation.  The government acts as a trustee for  estates, capital, etc., and guarantees the  honesty of its agents.  The government runs an employment  bureau. In December it placed 40 people with private employes and 66 on  government work.  Plutocrats do not constitute the supreme political power of New Zealand.  Land monopoly, railroad monopoly and  money monopoly are effectually prevented there, and as a result the country is  free from tramps and unemployed men  and women.  It   is estimated that the   income of  John D. Rockefeller for the year 1900,  from the   Standard Oil Company, will  amount to $32,000,000.    Andrew Carnegie, who is reported  to have said that  Rockefeller is the richest man in the  world, will, it is supposed,  have an income this year, from the big steel trust,  of $24,500,000.   Both these men began  with comparatively nothing, and both  are esteemed as good men for their great  charity, and their continued interest in  the Christian religion.     Yet they have  piled up fortunes so colossal that their  incomes are estimated at the immense  figures already quoted.     In   a country  that   professes   to   confer   liberty   and  equality upon its people, and especially  in a young country that boasts a disregard for those established usages that  guard the hereditary   rich   in   the old  world, would it not be reasonable that  the United States Government should  order an enquiry into the methods by  which    these    colossal    fortunes  were  amassed, and the conditions that made,  or that now make, such results possible.  In this connection,  it is worth noting  that Rockefeller and Carnegie have not  the fortunes that their incomes seem to  suggest, but that   both derive an unknown but immense sum from the advantages that they are permitted to take  of the necessities of the great bulk of the  people.   It is this   that should justify  investigation.���Toronto Star.  WISE   AND   OTHERWISE.  One Way of Beating; the Government.  Killed by a Log,  The sweetest candy of the Slocan is  always in plain view at Williams'.  Alex. Donkey was accidentally killed  at Day & MacDoweli's loggingcainp, at  Rock creek, Sunday night. He was  crushed by a heavy log rolling over  him, and died shortly after being taken  into camp. Deceased leaves a wife and  a large family of small children, who  are living in Spokane.  Foreigners at Rossland.  A number of men, who are unable or  unwilling to speak English, arrived at  Rossland this week from the iron mines  of Minnesota. It is not known whether  they are intended for the mines there  or merely lost their way en route to the  Slocan.  ings of an eight hour day. The tendency throughout the civilized world is  to lesson the hours of labor in all callings where the physical exertion is  considerable, and especially in the hazardous occupation of mining, and it has  been amply demonstrated by results  that eight hours is tke maximum time  during which a miner can exert his utmost capacity, and that to prolong the  time is certain to result in diminishing  instead of increasing the production.  ���'It is a poor comment upon the value  of British Columbia mines to say that  they will not pay on the eight hour system, and strangely at variance with the  glowing representations made in most  of the prospectuses that have been issued. One might weli be curious to know  what the money market thinks of the  statement and how it will affect the flow  of outside capital to the province, but  since the law is just and hunia no, and  one that has received the approval of  the highest authority, it is to be hoped  the provincial government will not accede to the pressure that is undoubtedly  being exerted for its repeal."  V3IIK    CA31P    PAYROLL.  The number of men working in the  Ymir camp is encouraging and the payroll most satisfactory. In all 438 men  are employed in the mines that are situated within ten miles of the town of  Ymir. The principal of these are:���  Ymir 145, Arlington 42, Yellowstone 40,  and Canadian lv. 40. Mining investments aggregate, $1,500,000.  Native wit may be foreign to the occasion.  There are many ways of beating a  railroad, and if there  is one thing in  this world that makes a Slocanite feel  better than another it is geiting even  with the tranportation monopoly that  runs the government.      Men will  lie  awake nights scheming- how to do it, not  because of the few cents that might be  saved by it, but simply to have the satisfaction   of knowing that   they   out-  schemed the prince of schemers.    To  illustrate:   Some clays ago  a citizen of  New Denver wanted to send a stove  damper   to    Silverton,    distance four  miles.    It would cost  20 cents by express and 30 cents by slow freight. The  fare to Silverton is only 15 cents, so the  party put the damper in his coat pocket,  bought a ticket and  made  the trip to  New Denver's most hopeful suburb with  the draught-checker and delivered it to  the buyer.    It cost 25c for a drink there  and a  four-mile   walk home,  but  the  scheme worked beautifully and there is  a nickle in the pocket of one New Den-  verite that the C. P. R won't get to add  to  that   corporations'   February   dividends.    Rossland Ore Shipments.  Ore shipments from the. Rossland  camp have fallen away to au insignificant amount, so much so as to be cast  entirely in the background. The Payne  mine is shipping almost as much  ore alone as the entire Rossland district, and the value per ton is fully five  times as much. The shipments from  Rossland last week were: the Le Roi,  2S3 tons, and the Iron Mask, (S3, making  a total for the year of 31,974 tons.

A man who bets may be doing wrong  but the man who doesn't bet is no better.  If a man would live to a ripe old age  he should get his name on the pension  roll.  Many a man becomes a pessimist  when he begins to harvest his wild  oats.  Every time a woman deceives a man  his vanity gets a shock that puts it to  sleep.  Unless a man is influenced by a wo ���  man he is neither very bad nor yet very  good.  Nothing pleases a man more than to  hear that his neighbor has lost all his  money.  Many a man has avoided the slip  'twixt cup and the lip by drinking- out  of the bottle.  A student of human nature who  knows his business never wastes much  time in society.  Whenever a man is browbeaten it is  usually by the gray matter behind some  other fellow's brow.  No man is absolutely perfect, but he  who acknowledges his fault is more than  halfway up the ladder.

WROM THIS KDITOK'S VPPJ5R STOPK.  Up to the time of going to press no  sure remedy has been discovered to  prevent damnation coming to delinquent subscribers.  When we stop to realize what  trouble one legislature can make in a  Province, we begin to appreciate how  sad and dreary things must be in the  state of Kentucky, where they have  two of them. ,      ,  notices  The editor of this paper has recently bought a new suit of clothes  and looks like a dude from the white  shirt country. The people cannot  account for this enterprise at the tail  end of an. eight months strike, and it  is broadly hinted that he must have  fallen heir to a legacy.  When B. C. again has a Legislature it is to be hoped that a law will  be passed prohibiting dirty linen  washing in the House. A prize ring  might be established in which all  members could settle their disputes  by hand instead ot mouth, as some of  them have been doing lately.  A man from Rossland said to us the  other day that the people of New  Denver were more refined than they  are in his city. This is a fact. We  know people in the Lucerne of  America so refined that they will not  advertise in this paper. The pub  iieity it would give their business  would be vulgar and too great a  shock for their gentle and somnolent  natures to stand.  Human nature has many sides.  Soft soap a man in a newspaper and  his praises will be long and load in  favor of its editor. Jab the pen of  truth into some of his faults and he  will go out of his way to tell anybody who will listen to him that the  editor is no good, and that his sheet  is so punk that he is afraid fumigation will not save it. Many papers  manage to exist in spite of this class  of cowardly backcappers  When a fellow goes out and wallows in the sunshine that is so cheap  and so plentiful in New Denver this  season, he finds it difficult to believe  that, at the selfsame moment, a  blizzard is.blowing fourteen distinct  and different daylights out of those  misguided people who continue to  try and exist in the winder weather  back yonder in Manitoba where  frozen foot and the frostbitten ear  make merry all the day long.  A report has been current the past  week to the effect that the mine managers were still bringing in men  from the states to take the, places of  the Union miners. We are assured,,  however, that the hundred men en  route, to the Slocan from Michigan  have been stopped by tin: manager?,  and that no further efforts will be  made to import men. This the.community bis a right to expect of the  managers, and they undoubtedly  will avoid doiim anything that would  be. antagonistic to tin;, communis .'.-,  interests. The same is expected of  the Miner's, i'mon. Let the settlement be   effective   and   for  all tim<\  journal   and  find   reading  something like this:  ' 'Mr. Kufozlem was almost a goner,  and his life was not worth a soo. He  had been run over by a freight train,  cut in two by a circular saw, hit with  a lyddite shell and his friends were  in despair. He commenced taking  O'Jagerty's Blood Tonic, and after a  few doses health again became his  comrade and today he is bale and  hearty."  Or this: "R. O. M'Gall lay dying  of consumption in its tenth stage.  For years he had been a slave to  jackleg journalism, and it had  brought him to the outer fringe of  the grave. He had kept himself  alive by envy and jealousy mixed  with conceit until he had grown so  weak that he could not take a dose  of physic for fear that he would lose  his brains. At last when every ray  of hope seemed gone he swallowed a  barrel of Dusenbury's Jim Jam Bitters, and once more became fat, ragged and a bore to the community."  Or this: "For a. hundred years Mr.  O'Gooslam had lived in Three Forks  in the best of health. Then he lost  his eyesight and became deaf, while  the cold chills of senility made him  shiver with impotent rage. One day  he picked up the Rosebery Daily  Hum, and read about Humbug's  Liver Pills. Like a drowning man  grabbing at a floating feather, he  bought a carload of these pills and  before he had consumed a case the  spectacles fell off his nose 'and he  walked to New Denver in fifty minutes, and he promises to live to a  green old age. One dollar a box at  all drug shops."  Or this: "For many ages Mrs.  Lacedup had dragged her highheeled  shoes along the pike of misery. Her  lite was a living hell, and nightly  she prayed that the moon would  never change. But all in vain.  Step by step she was sinking into the  grave. Day by day her painted  complexion faded. Night after  night did she lie awake and wonder  why women are thus persecuted.  Hour by hour she prayed for relief  but not a sign was visible. Just as  she had reached the point where the  cold clammy hand of death was  stretched out to her she turned her  eyes to the wall and there read an  ad of Mother Grigham's Pansy Pellets.  She managed to send a messenger  post haste for a few boxes of this remedy and after taking a few doses the  flush of health spread itself over her  store complexion and she has never  been sick since.    She saws wood, has  24 children and has forgotten all;.-,  about the moon. This great female !i  remedy is sent by mail upon receipt j ���'<  of 25 cents." ���    j|?  It is the reading of similar adds to i"}  the ones just quoted in almost every  paper that makes us wonder why the  people pay for papers with such trash  in them. Perhaps they don't. We  had forgotten about that possibility.  MitriuTiiltii T��JhJI~iTri TTi ti-WtiTii���iTHh im ��rln Tlh>i liilHTiii lflffim  eko  oetreal  THK    UNVAllXISHED    TRUTH.  The local newspaper is the guide j  that all men look to when  they are  contemplating going into business in  a new locality.     They scan  the advertising columns and it they find  their line of business already represented they look elsewhere for a  location.   Just now there  are some  very good openings in the Slocan for  several branches of business.    Particularly is this so in  New  Denver,  the Queen camp of the Slocan.     If  a business man were to look over the  advertising  columns   of the Ledge  ivith   a view of ascertaining what  lines of business were represented he  would find this array ot thriving institutions:     Bourne   Bros.,    general  merchants; Bank of Montreal; John  Williams,   fruits,   confectionery and  tobaccoes; New Denver Transportation & Light Co.;  New Denver Brick  Yard;    J.

Goodwin writes to the Indianapolis  Press as follows:���  About midsummer, 1863, when the  land was filled with mourning- and  men's hearts quaked because of fear on  account of the terrible loss of life at  Gettysburg and the uncertainty of the  situation, a distinguished Presbyterian  minister, who was waiting at the union  station for his train, called upon his  personal friend, William N. Jackson,  then, as now, doing' duty in the secretary's office. After the usual salutations the preacher asked: "What do you  think "of the conditions of the country,  Brother Jackson?"  Without speaking a word, Mr. Jackson reached for his Bible, then lying on  his table, and, turning- to the Ninety-  seventh Psalm, said: "Read that," and  the preacher read: "The Lord reigneth;  let the earth rejoice."  "That answers the whole question,''  said Mr. Jackson. Clouds and darkness  may be about Him; we may not be able  to see the meaning of His acts, but we  are sure that righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne,  hence  we can only wait and trust.  "Far, far above our thought  His counsel shall appear,  When fully He the work hath wrought  That caused our needless fear,"  Then followed a half-hour's conversation along the line of the scripture quoted, Mr. Jackson insisting that those  who came alter would understand why  God used war to accomplish what could  not be brouiht about by any other  agency; and the preacher took the cars  for borne a happier man for the interview with a layman who reads and believes the Bible,and long ago those who  participated in that war from mere political motive learned that "Far, far  above their thought" God had in view  not only the emancipation of the negro,  but the emancipation of the slaveholders themselves, and their elevation  toa higher moral, social and.commercial plane than was possible with the  nightmare of slavery paralyzing them,  and the lifting of the whole nation to a  higher level.  Whoever would study these wars intelligently, or any war, for that matter,  must recognize, as a foundation truth,  that the Lord i eigneth We may not  always be pleased with His. methods;  we may cen imagine we could do better if we wk'ided the sceptre, or we may  Now DenTor,  Is  beautifully  situated   on   the  shore of Slocan  Lake, in the heart  of the richest  silver   producing  country in the  world:   surrounded by lofty snowcapped mountains  and canyons so  deep the sun's  rays never  reach  the bottom; glacial,   mountain  and lake scenerj  so grand as to defy  the brush of the  artist, the pen of  the poet, the elo  quence of Demos.-  thenes, the living  and the dead.

The second companion truth to be  always present in such a study is that  what God does for man He does by  man. Sometimes this is done through  the gentle ministrations of parents and  teachers; sometimes through the more  severe discipline of the master driving  his slaves to his task, as the negro has  been lifted from his condition as it was  in the jungles; and often by the horrors  of war, for there has not been a war  since the days that sheik fought sheik,  that the survival of the fittest has not  contributed to the uplift of the race.  This may not always be so marked as  to be perceptible in any given case, but  in the end it is marked.

What may have been the immediate  motive of the Boers in declaring war  against the British, or the motive of  Eng-land in the demand which made  war inevitable, has nothing to do with  the real significance of the war The  bottom fact is that for 300 years representatives of the lower stratum of  Dutch civilization had been operating  in South Africa only because it yielded  rich pecuniary results; they had intermarried with the aboriginal Hottentot,  producing a. mongrel people, more Hot-  tentotish than Dutch, with little promise of any higher civilization in the next  300 years, occupying one of the most  productive portions of the earth, rich in  gold and other precious minerals, yet  not open to  other people except   under  ;-o only a short step farther and say  in  hearts, if no! words,there is no God;  humiliating conditions. This might of  itself be no just cause for a war of aggression if it were true that the acci.  dental possession of such a region by a  handful of people who would not half  develop either its agricultural or mineral wealth, gave those, possessors a  vested right to its exclusive possession.  To so claim is to assume that the 7.0.)0  Indians who, a hundred years ago,  roamed through the forests and the  prairies of the territory which now constitutes the state of Indiana had such a  title to the land and that we. are !;������.������;-  I passers.

In these days our daughters are.launched  into the world much as professional men  would be did thoir outfit consist of textbooks of which they had not learned the  use. Every embellishment, every accomplishment, every mental equipment, every  bodily skill of athletic play, is sedulously  made familiar to them. They are indued  "splendidly furnished," but to how few is  it taught that they fire to be the- strongest  restraining and purifying power of the  social world!  No one can shut out from a young girl's  consciousness that, -he is beautiful if the  wondrous gift is really hers. Why should  she not be made to understand thitt having  J it she has been intrusted with that which  has had power to move even the rulers and  kingdoms of the earth and that in the lowest estimate possible of her influence she  hfis "a government upon her shoulders'"  We of a generation passing out of sight  say constantly that the world is richer in  art and splendor, in luxury and resource,  than when wo were yeung. We know that  life is fuller, that thirirs wo never dreamed  of gladden and make life easier materially  and more worth livim; intellectually. Yes,  these-are trite truths, but no thoughtful  woman helices that the general aim is as  elevating, as conservative, that the influence against dissipation and the coarser  grain of life's converse and action is as  largo or as strong as ii was in their young  day.  There is no desire to bring back the  formality and' sti.u'd stiffness of Miss  Austen's heroes and heroines.

'.01.1000 is not innocence, "nor yot.is  the i.!.^.\\ied!;e of evil, which no man can  hinder, possibly to be confounded with  loss fit' sensitive delicacy and clear eyed  purity of thought, but the general discussion, of subject's involving tho analysis of  crime und tho 'questions of morality, common to present society, lowers the tone of  all concerned.  It has been the writer's personal experience during the past year to hear animated argumonts at a public table between young married and unmarried men  and women of excellent social standing  as to the morality or immorality of books  and plays involving the deepest questions  of life and the relations of tho sexes.  "The 'jeune fille' is a forgotten personage. There is no longer any one answering to her whom the French so called,"  said a woman of the world to me. Perhaps society is not impoverished by the  loss of her who being a woman in years  was allowed to be a child in .simplicity.  Yet it would be refreshing occasionally, to  old eyes at least, to be in the company of  one whose trust in honor and sincerity  was without fear, who knew not the terrors and pitfalls of life and who had yet  the lost art of blushing in her gentle list  of accomplishments.  A revolutionizing power as to all that  changes the "order of our day" lies in  feminine hands, through the use of what  is distinctively hers. Through no other  moans can amusement be kept within  bounds, ooiTiplimont be repressed into  more delicate expression, conversation be  led into higher yet not less lively channels,  and men be made to know that to win favors they must wear the tokens of knightly purity and courage. It is not through  her strong arm, nor her mathematical  honors, nor hor admittance to tho bar, that  a woman can elevate her race. By her adherence to the true, the spiritual and the j  uplifting will she make a refuge for the  teen of her time.���New York Post.

This is done without bending the knees.  In recovering position let tho arms reins  and sink down as the body straightens up.  This exercise also lengthens the waist.

One. by one. inventions to meet cv.ry  desire and  demand of modern life are  being placed on the market.    Mothers  of Canada have long wished for some  means of teaching their infants to walk  without injury \o the child in any way,  or danger of them  having their legs  bowed by too much pressnre from the  body when the limbs are weak. Thomas  Sloan, of Slocan City, in this province,  had  observed this, and about a year  ago he set about inventing- an article  that would answer the purpose.   After  three months he succeeded in perfecting  a Baby Walker, which   for efficiency  and  simplicity will commend itself to  all mothers.   It is a piece of furniture  with four legs, at the bottom  of each  being a castor.   The child is placed in  the   Walker, and  a  cushioned  band  holds its body  in position    Then a set  of screws regulates just how the child's  feet will touch the floor.  The child, secure in the embrace of  ��� the band, can bush the Walker here  and there without danger of overturning, and  its   feet touch  the  floor  so  lightly that there is no possible show  for any child to contract bent legs. The  invention will be a boon to the public  and its low price will enable the poorest  family to obtain one.   No mother with  a young family should be without it.  It will save much anxiety and will confer a benefit upon the infantile generation.   Made upon a larger pattern,these  Walkers can be used by adults in need  of some aid to locomotion, whereby it is  necessary to remove the weight of the  body while the patient moves around,  corporal two shillings, seigeants two  shillings and eight pence, troop sergeant-major three shillings and 10  pence, squadron sergeant-major four  shilling's and four pence This may be  supplemented by a grant from the Canadian government suflicient to bring-  the pay up to that paid the Canadian  militia, which is about the same as the  mounted police rate.  A    GA3I.K'   FOR    LIFE.  and by gentle  exercise   restores the  strength of the lower limbs.  Mr. Sloan, who still resides in Slocan  City, has just received his patent and  is selling county rights to all active  agents. Seldom has an article been  placed upon the market that affords  agents such a chance to make money.  The Walker will recommend itself on  sight, and its mechanism is so simple  that anyone can understand it in a few  moments. Mr. Sloan intends leaving-  for the east in a short time to make  arrangement for manufacturing the  Walkers at some of the many excellent  furniture factories scattered throughout  Ontario. He thinks that they will be  made in Wingham, but has not fully  decided.  A reporter of this paper saw the model at Slocan City a few days ago, and  without hesitation pronounces it one of  the most simple and useful inventions  ot the day, and feels certain that its  sale will he widespread. Mr. Sloan  will devote most of his time in the future to the sale of the Baby Walker,and  it is to be hoped that some day he will  manufacture them in the west as well  as in the east.  Last year, says London Tit Bits, a  game of chess wars played between two  German students under very tragic  conditions. The two players, who were  rival claimants to tho hand of a daughter of one of their professors, had quarrelled and exchanged blows, and a duel  became inevitable. As each man was  ;i skillful chess player it was decided  that they should play a game, and that  the loser should take his own life. The  gruesome game was played in a restaurant, and after a stubborn struggle  ended in favor of the aggressor in the  quarrel. The following morning the  loser was found dead in his rooms.  Perhaps the most tragic game on  record was played many years ago by  Herr Watzdorf and Herr Schwartz 5,000  feet above the earth. In this case, too,  jealousy was the sole cause of the tragedy, and the rivals decided to resort  to the novel expedient of playing a  death game above the clouds, the loser  to throw himself from the balloon. One  can picture something of the tragic  tension of the two players as each card  was turned up and played, and the  growing- despair of Herr Schwartz as he  saw that destiny was against him.  With the throw of the last card he  turned round and flung himself 5,000  feet down to the earth, where his mutilated body was found on the following  day. His death was ascribed to accident, and the true story of this aerial  tragedy was not known nntil Watzdorf  declared it on his death bed a few years  ago.   TRUMPET CAIXS FROM RAM'S HORN.

Inventors'names are often related to  the subject of   their   inventions,   and  some queer jumbles of names results.  Among the family of "eatable" names  appeared P. Aogg, with his self-waiting  table, and S. S. Drybread, with a new  brand of wheat flour. Succeeding these,  a Mr. Ballott annexed his name to  the  election booth.   Names recalling metals  are no exception.   It was Brazier who  invented a stone firepot and stoker, and  R. J. Bolt a combination lock.   Singularly enough, politics are not barred  out, as J.McTammany invented a novel  voting machine and a patent was granted him. Racing is allowed in the collection, for a Mr. Horse was complimented  on a safety fast driving rein lately patented by him.    The horseman was followed by Mr. Larsen and a patent burglar alarm.    Hardware is also mentioned, as  Mr. Pulley   invented   a   stump  extractor, which  has been advantageously used   A man named Girl invented  a baby walker, anrl Mr. Husbands, who  is unmarried, put  before  the  public a  patent baby  jumper.    In  railroad patents   Mr. Carr   is  registered   with   his  patent car  mover, and   he  opened  the  way for Mr Gatewood with, Ins original  gate.    A   Pittsburg patentee obtained  the  exclusive right to  sell a washing  machine.

Many lose their souls to save their  skins.  It is a mistake to be forever copying  copies.  The simplest patriotism is the hardest  to practice.  Ritualism is an attempt to feed men  on furniture.  The life of goodness is the likeness of  God.      :  Spiritual vision is not material blindness.  The godly man is he who acti divinely  to his fellows.  The roses drop from sin, but the  thorns remain.  He is a brave man who  thinks  thoughts aloud.  God is working toward a perfect man  in a perfect world.  Duplicity of conduct will not win im-  plicity of confidence.  The riper the fruit of holiness, the  lower it bends itself.  A criminal may escape from his cell,  but not from himself.  There will be"good will amongst men''  when they all do God's will.  The angel's song is not set for their  choir alone, but for all the chorus of  humanity.  Sorrow cannot separate us from the  Savior, but He shall yet separate us  from them.  Postoffice address, Rosebery.
