Twenty-five of the workmen at the  Idaho came down Tuesday to attend  the funeral of the unfortunate men  killed in the snowslide Sunday.  The prime of life in a man of regular  habits and sound constitution is from  30 to 55 yeaas of age; of a woman, from  ,'.i or 25 to about 40 years of age.  "Dad" Black was exchanging compliments with his New Denver friends  this week. Jim thinks New Denver  has the finest townsite in the world.  New Denver might as well look up  their fire apparatus. Fires seem to be  epidemic and the Lucerne might as well  get vaccinated as much as possible.  A   letter   addressed   to   Mrs.   R.   T.  Lowery arrived at this office last week.  If the lady is in the country she can  have the missive by calling or writing  for it.  The effort to disfranchise several  hundred voters in this and Nelson riding resulted in a hopeless fizzle when  the matter came up in the court of  revision.  Just now a few pushers would make  Now Denver a humming cam]). Too  many of the present citizens cannot  wake up when an opportunity raps at  their door.  Sandonites are. averse to leaving their  town even for a few days, and are  worrying along as best they can in  tents and rude shacks until better  buildings are erected.  John Williams is opening an ice  cream parlor in connection with his  present business. Hazlewood and other  creams will now be obtainable by all  moneyed customers.

Three men are at work on the Royal  Pivogroup,ad joining the Mol lie Hughes,  driving a cross-cut to tap the ledge exposed on the surface. Ore is encounter ud at intervals in the cross-cut, and  the showing is very good.  "A Bitter Atonement'" will be reproduced in Bosun Hall to-night by the  company that played it at Sandon.  Every fire extinguisher in town should  be refilled and placed in a handy place  ready for immediate use.  The people in Sandon are nervy. In  npite of the danger from fire, flood and  slides many of them will stay with that  city until the last miner drops his drill,  and the last dollar bids it adieu. Thus  is the love of money strikingly illustrated.  New Denver raised Soil! for tho losers  at Sandon. Considering the size of the  town this is the largest contribution  yet made. The credit of collecting the  funds is mainly due to that energetic  and public-spirited young man, Cashier  Gibbs, of the Bank of Montreal.  At the last election Jim Poupore, the  philosopher of Nakusp. brought 28  voters to the polls on his tug boat. Then  27 of them voted the opposite way Jim  wanted them to, ami the other man got  so drunk that he could not vote. Jim  will not go out in a boat at the coming  election.  In the Klondike eggs are now selling  at $'120 a case and beef at $1.50a pound.  'I he state of Washington furnished  over 500,000 tons of coal to California  last year.  Last year  4,700.000 cubic   yards   of  material was dredged out of the Duluth  Superior harbor.  In New York city 150 retail druggists  have formed an association to compete  with departmental .stores  Thirty-six foreign vessels, having an  aggregate tonnage of 57,556, met with  disaster in American waters  last year.  A bill is before the New York senate  which provides for shorter hours for  firemen in New York cities of the first  class.  Massachusetts has 110 street railway  companies, controlling 1,492 miles.  Last year the increase in mileage in the  state was 35.  Eastern electric- light plants this summer will be used in the manufacture of  ice during' the months when lights are  little needed.   ��� ��� '  During the third week in January IS  English and Irish railways earned 2��  per cent, more than during the same  period in 1.800, and three Scotch companies increased their earnings 2 per  cent.  The fishing industry ofNorth Corolina  yields an annual product worth oyer  SI .000,000 at no cost to the state, as the  fish commission pays its own expenses  and turns from 8-tMk.k) to Slo.ouo into the  state treasury every year.

At Denver a demand for higher wages  from nearly all lines of workmanship  has been granted peaceably. In the  building trades especially the demand  for labor is so urgent that advances  wei\i granted readily and the cost of  houses raised proportionately.  SLOGAN    jriN'KKAI.    FLOAT.  Miners are none too plentiful in the  Slocan.  Frank Wood has sold his tenth interest in the Last Chance to Dr. Hendryx  for .8100,000.'     ,.  A small shipment of ore for sampling  purposes is being' shipped from the  Galena mines.  Another payment, was made on the  Hartney last week, making 25 per cent,  of the entire amount to be paid.  The first payment on the Hewefct was  made last week. The bonders are  satisfied that the Hewett will make a  mine.  Dynamite has dropped to S7.75 a case  owing to a war between the old and  new companies doing business in the  Ivootenay  The Tamarac group on Springer  creek has been bonded to John A.  Finch. Work will be vigorously prosecuted on the property.  Ore shipments are increasing rapidly  at Slocan lake points, and the deckhands have that weary look which  conies from an over-indulgence in hard  labor.  POLITICS    IN   XELSOX.  Trouble seems to be brewing in Nelson. The politicians, are on the war  path, armed with that deadly weapon  so many suppose only.women possess���  that awful gift of the gab; not only this,  but scouts inform us, they have arms of  long range���arm; that deal the Fitz-  sirnmons' knock-out blows, and make  men chew the dust. They have already  broken into our public coffers and  carried off a quantity of our franchise.  The voters' list, on which much valuable time and money has lately been  spent to get so nicely stuffed for the  Paris Exposition, has been undermined,  and only a few remnants remain to tell  of great deeds.  The poor inhabitants of the city cannot tell just where they are at. They  cannot put their peeper out of doors  but they are grabbed bv one of these  blowhards, who are continually rubbernecking the streets, and marched off to  83  Sandon Licked Up. in a Few Hours by the Fare  Fiend and the Old Town in Ashes.  Shipping Concentrator.  The California.  Tiie St. Eugene is again a shipper.  However this time it is not the crude  ore which is being sent to the smelter,  but concentrates, the product of the  new mill. During the past week ten  carloads or 230 tons were, shipped to the  smelter tit Great Falls. Mont.  Beginning May first the mill will be  } kept ruining both day and night. By  so during-, in every 2-1- hours 250 tons of  ore will be crushed, making between 50  and 00 tons of concentrates. G. A. King  has decided to remain with the company and has been given charge of the  mill'  Manager Cronin complains of a  scarcity of machine miners in the camp,  and says thattherearuseveral positions  open to good men.���Movie Leader.  Omsorvat iv<f   Lender.  A. J. Marks arrived in New Denver  on Monday with a force of mun for the  California. Supplies arc being packed  to that property and work will be vigorously prosecuted. The long crosscut  tunnel through the Clipper ground to  tap the California ledge will be completed; also the raise on the upper workings. When the crosscut is finished it  will give 1,200.feet of sloping ground.  Miners,   Attention !  "All,things come to those who wait."  Sandon people waited many moons for  the   fire   that   finally came.    The  fire  fiend has been  overworked with business lately at Hull and other places, but  he found time last week to stop off a few  hours in Sandon and lick that burg to a  ruined finale.   The play  came  up this  way.    In   tho fore   part   of  Thursday  evening many of the citizens witnessed  a local amateur company play 'A Bitter  Atonement5  in Spencer's Opera House.  After the play was over they dispersed  to their homes without any trouble and  the  night  progressed as  far as   12:30  without further excitement other than  the passing of a few dollars in the horse  poker game at the   Palace.   Then the  fire   fiend   through   one   of his  many  agents, probably the discarded stub  of  a cigar, opened up his game; in, around,  close to, or under Spencer's Hall and  for several hours there was a hot time  in the silvery town.   George Spencer  had been in bed a few minutes when he  noticed   a   bright   glare   through   the  window.    The fire was so energetic that  Spencer did not even have time to save  the cash receipts of  the  evening's  performance.     Barefooted,   with   nothing  but their lives and a scanty raiment,  George and his wife escaped  from  the  warm   surroundings.     Others,   in   adjoining buildings,   had similar  experiences.    The   firumen   used  their best  efforts to control  the flames, but the  heat and theCairo-like steed was against  them, burning some of their  hose and  forcing them to retreat, while the heart  of Sandon went up the flume like  pancakes   before   a   modern    hobo.     The  burned space extended from the C.P.H.  station to a   short  distance  below  the  Comique, and for three hours  with  the  wind blowing down   the gulch  it  was  prison or some other joint  and  there j ]jke H ij|,,st from hell's upper stope.

The  same fate is meted out to those who  have, a passport to the 400 and have  their trousers turned up at the bottom  as to the meanest individual who carries  the white man's burden. It is rumored  that they are already attempting to bull  the voters' stock market, but no reliable  information has been received of any-  great advance in price. This is not  credited as the enemy is closely c.oralled  but, to paraphrase the irreverant Sam  Jones, a fly could sit on the bridge of  their noses, spit in one eye and scratch  out the other.  Th<!

Chas Wilson, Q. C, is an interesting  person. Born in London, England, he  came out in '02 to British Columbia,  while quite a youngster, and in '03  joined the rush to Cariboo. In '00 and  '07 he was in the Big Bend placer  mining and washed gold on French,  MeCullough and Smith Creeks. He  trapped all one winter on Canoe river.  He was very successful as a trapper,  though when he started in neither he  nor his partner knew how to construct  a trap and did not even know what a  marten looked like After the Big  Bend stampede petered out he went  back to Cariboo and was for a year  editor of the Cariboo Sentinel, a small  weekly newspaper published at Barker-  ville, at the rate of "four bits" a copy.

They were  Joseph Dovin and Louis Bagattin and  came to the Slocan from Wiikeso.u,  Wash. They had a contract on the  Mary S, one of the Idaho group of claims.  John Steel, who was at the Democrat,  saw the slide and gave the. alarm to the  men at the Idaho. Tony Becker and  27 men dug all day to get the bod Jen  out. One was found at -1:30 and the  other at 8 p.m. near the mouth of the  tunnel. Both men were buried in the  New Denver cemetery.  A  Mystery.  There seems to he a mystery in New  Denver's record office. The door in the  room before the vault is kept closed  and typewriter sounds emanate therefrom. Can it be possible that Mac has  a pretty typewriter girl concealed in  that room, or has Arnold wandered  back again in search of office room at  the Government's expense. The public  would like to know who is running this  record office, Mclnnes or the mysterious  individual in the back room?  The Sandon fire havoc in that city  created no effect upon John Williams, of New Denver. He is still in  the old stand dealing out fruit, candy  and cigars to the appreciative and ever  increasing multitude.  scene was much the same as is always  witnessed in mining camp   fires.    Live  cinders filled the air, setting fire to the  mountain   sides.     One   lit   upon   the  steeple of the Presbyterian church  and  that edifice  was doomed.    Th?.n  in a  ruthless   manner   the   fiend   attacked  Sunnyside,   the   Fifth   avenue   of the  Silver city, and buried  it   in an  ashy  grave.   The   Reco   Hotel  and all  the  other fine buildings   were  wiped out.  The C. P. U. depot was blown up and  thw fire did not consume  Lane's stable  or any buildings across the track. Down  the gulch  the raging   element   swept  across the dead line and every  maison  dejoie was cremated,    due only buildings left standing between the extreme,  limits of the burned area are. Atherton's  brick warehouse, the rod barn, formerly  occupied by   Hammond  Bros ,   Hunter  Bros' warehouse, electric power housci  Folliott & McMillan's factory, and a few  shacks.    Liquor was free and  many  the rounders took hoo/.erine baths. The  disaster is severe, on John  Buckley.  J.  M. Harris,   H. II. Pitts,   Ed   Atherton.  Bob Cunning, Eri Thompson, and many  other pioneers of the  camp.    That  all  the losers  have  the.  sympathy ol"  thu  public   is   easily  shown  by   the  ready  manner in which aid   has been  rushed  to the  sufferers  from   many   points  in  Kootenav, especially  Kaslo,  Silverton  and New Denver.    Some of  the stores  and saloons have already resumed business under canvas.    An  effort  will   be  made   to  have   Reco  avenue  widened  before building operations will he commenced.    Many of the prominent   merchants will  not rebuild unless this is  done.    The loss is estimated at half a  million by many, but it is more  likely  that $300,000 is nearer the mark  The.

The  papers have heretofore referred to the  Russian expenditures, and the Germans  are paying out a good deal of money  also, on their mining and railroad concessions. China may be looked on as a  good consumer  for silver  for a large  all through it.  ! The large increase in shipments to  | India is due chiefly to the purchases of  j silver for coinage which were forced  j upon the Indian government by the  | heavy expenditures for. famine relief.  ! Whether any more purchases of this  ' kind will be made depends very much  I upon the extent of the famine payments  ��� required. No purchases will be made  j if the government can avoid it.  j This large eastern demand has tend-  : ed to keep the price of silver steady  , this year, and it has shown only slight  I variations. At current prices, ship-  j incuts to the east this year represent  | about J'2,005,000 fine ounces of silver, of  j which over SO per cent, came originally  ; from the United States In addition to  |.the.

Drawn by the ever-magic power of gold  across the spreading plains,  Eyes set in eve-iy face aglow with fond  anticipation's light,  The great Black Hills the only theme of  conversation day and night,  ��� Rough-shirtecl men in canvas garh,men  dressed in finest of attire,  Men seeking victims for their games,  men hot with speculative fire,  The man of leisure,.man of wealth, the  pauper, and the mining man  Touched elbows in the gold-mad throng  in early days in old Cheyenne.  The bullwhips popped as pop the guns  in battle on the busy street,  The toiling oxen  lolled their tongues  and panted from the summer heat,  The dusty drivers swung the  lash  and  swore as ''whackers" only swear,  The jolting wagons lent their  noise to  swell the tumult in the air.  The  reckless  riders of the range,  in  leather chaps and wealth of hat,  Upon the backs of  bucking  bronks at.  ease within the saddle sat,  And rough, unshaven faces browned by  Rocky mountain weather tan  ���Predominated in the crowds upon  the  streets of old Cheyenne.  The. breath  of  liquor vile  as  sin  cast  poison on the. western air,  The  glasses clinked   in   sun-browned  hands in many an alcoholic air,  Unceasing clicked   the faro  chips and  danced the ball upon the wheel,  Untuned pianos beat the time for those  who tripped the toe and heel.  Hand-painted creatures of the sex their  reckless, wasted lives disgraced,  Danced in theanns of drunken men, their  forms in shameful garb encased,  And bold licentiousness as tide of hell-  inspired fever ran,  In that in ad revelry of sin in early days  in old Cheyenne.  Those scenes are but a memory now in  that fair city of the plains;  Morality stepped in and from outlawry  snatched the guiding reins;  Determined men and ready ropes from  her escutcheon wiped disgrace  And wrote the telling word  "Reform"  in golden letters in its place.  A hint of those exciting clays is seldom  heard, excepting when  The   few   surviving   pioneers,   brave,  sturdy old gray-headed men,  Meet in rimnion as a gay and jolly reminiscent clan,  And in their yearnings resurrect those  early days in old Cheyenne.  ���Denver Post.  ���A    MKSS.VOE    TO    G.\H CIA.'  A   Se  r n for the Times���-Why  SI en Ave  Failure*.  In the Philistine Magazine for March,  1899, appeared an article, "A Mc. ige  to Garcia," by Elbert Hubbard, which  contains so many chunks of hard, solid  fact that, it has been widely copied, and  has now been issued in pamphlet form  in an edition of 1.00,000 copies. This  article, which we reproduce below in its  entirety, is well worth reading.  In all this Cuban business there is one  man stands out on the horizon of my  memory like Mars at Perihelion. When  war broke out between Spain and the  United States, it was very ne.cessaiy to  communicate quickly with the leader  of the insurgents. Garcia was somewhere in the mountain fastnesses of  Cuba���no one knew where. No mail  nor telegraph message could reach him.  The President must secure his co-operation, and quickly.  What to do !  Some one said to the President,  "There's a fellow by the name of Rowan  who will find Garcia for you, if anybody  can."  Rowan was sent for andgiven a letter  to be delivered to Garcia. How "the  fellow by the name of Rowan" took the  letter, sealed it up in an oil-skin pouch,  strapped it over his heart, in four days  landed by night, off the coast of Cuba  from an'-open boat, disappeared into  the jungle, and in three weeks came  out on the other side of the island, baring traversed a hostile country on foot,  and delivered his letter to Garcia, are.  things I have no special desire now to  tell in detail.  The point I wish to make is this: Me-  Kinley gave Rowan a letter to be delivered to Garcia; Rowan took the letter  and did not ask, "Where is he at?" By  the Eternal ! there is a man whose form  .should h�� cast in deathless bronze and  the statue placed in every college of the  land. It is not book-learning young  men need, nor instruction about this  and that, but a stiffening of the vertebra-, which will cause, them to lie loyal  to a trust, to act promptly, concentrate  their energies: do the. tiling���"Carry a  message to Garcia!"  General Garcia is dead now.but there  are other Garcias.  No man, who has endeavored to carry  out an enterprise where many hands  were needed, but has been well nigh  appalled at times by the imbecility of  the average man���the inability or unwillingness to concentiate on a thing  and do it. Slip-shod assistance, foolish  inattention, dowdy indifference, and  half-hearted work seem the rule; and  no man succeeds, unless by hook or  crook, or threat, he forces or bribes  other men to assist him; or mayhap,  God in His goodness performs a miracle  and -ends him an Angel of Light for an  assistant. Vou, reader, put this matter  to a test: You are. sitting now in your  office���six clerks are within call. Summon any one and make, this request:  "Please look in the encyclopedia and  make a brief memorandum forme concerning the life of Correggio "  Will the clerk quietly say, "Yes. sir,"  and go do the task ?  On your  life,   lie  will   not     He  will  look at vou out of a fishy  eye and  ask  one or more of the following questions:  Who was he?  Which encyclopedia?  Where is the encyclopedia?  Was I hired for that?  Don't you mean Bismarck?  What's the matter with Charlie doing-  it?  Is lie dead?  Is there any hurry?  Shan't I bring you the book  and  let  you look it up yourself?  What do you want to know for?  And I will lay you ten to one that  after you have answered the questions,  and explained how to find the information, and why you waiit it, the clerk  will go off and get one of the other  clerks'to help him try to find. Garcia���  and'then come back and tell you there  is no such man. Of course I may lose  my bet, but. according to the Law of  Average, 1 will not.  Now, if you are wise'you wi'l not  bother to explain to your "assistant"  that Correggio; is indexed under the  C's, not in the K's, but you will smile  sweetly arid say, "Never mind," and  go look it tip yourself.  And this incapacity for independent:  action, this moral stupidity, this infirmity, of the will, this .unwillingness  to cheerfully catch hold and lift, are the  things that put pure Socialism so far  into the future. If men will not act for  themselves, what will they do when  the benefit of their effort is for all? A  first-mate with knotted club seems  necessary; and the dread of getting  "the bounce" Saturday night, holds  many a worker to his place.  Advertise for a stenographer, and  nine out of ten who apply can neither  spell or punctuate���and do not think it  necessary to  Can such a one write a letter to Garcia ?  "You see that book-keeper," said the  foreman to me in a large factory.  "Yes; what about him ?"  "Well, he's a fine accountant, but if  I'd send him up town on an errand, he  might accomplish the errand all right,  and, on the other hand, might stop at  four saloons on the way, and when he  got to Main street, would forget what  he had been sent for*"  Can such a man be trusted to carry a  message to Garcia?  s<> Many ^ye \viv(i recently been hearing much  maul in sympathy expressed for the  "down-trodden denizen of the sweatshop" and the "homeless wanderer  searching for honest employment," and  with it all often goes many hard words  for the men in power.  Nothing is said about the employer  who grows old before his time in a vain  attempt to get frowsy ne'er-do-wells to  do intelligent work; and his long,  patient striving with "help" that does  nothing but loaf when his back is turned.  In every store and factory there is a  constant weeding-out process going on.  The employer is constantly sending  away "help" that have shown their incapacity to further the interests of the  business, and others are being taken  on. No matter how good times are,  this sorting continues, only if times are  hard and work is scarce, the sorting is  done finer���but out and forever out, th  incompetent and unworthy go. It is  the survival of the fittest. Self-interest  prompts every employer to keep the  best���those who can carry a message to  Garcia.  1 know one man of really brilliant  parts who has not the ability to manage  a business of his own, and yet who is  absolutely worthless to any one else,  because he carries with'him constantly  the insane suspicion that his employer  is oppressing, or intending to oppress  him. He cannot, give orders; and he  will not receive them. Should a message  be given him to take to Garcia, his  answer would probably be, "Take it  yourself."  To-night this man walks the streets  looking for work, the wind whistling  through his thread-bare coat. No one  who knows him dare employ him, for  he is a regular firebrand of discontent.  He is impervious to reason, and the  only thing that can impress him is the  toe of a thick-soled No. 9 boot.  Of course 1 know that one so morally  deformed is no less to be pitied than a  physical cripple: but in our pitying,  let. us drop a tear, too, for the men who  fire striving to carrv on a  great  enter-  the man who, when given a letter for  Garcia, quietly takes the missive, without asking-any idiotic questions, and  with no lurking intention of chucking"  it into the nearest auwer, or of doing-  aught (else but deliver it, never gets  "laid off," nor has to go on strike for  higher wages. Civilization is one long  anxious search /or just such individuals  Anything siuh a man asks shall be  granted; hid kind is so rare that no employer car. afford to.let him. go. He is  wanted in every city, town and village  ���in every ohice, shop, store and factory.  The world cries out for such: he is  needed and needed badly���the man who  can carry a message to Garcia.

In such veins  "ore shoots" may be considered as long  and more or less continuous patches or  bodies of ore descending and following  the downward dip of the vein, these  often separated from one another by  comparatively barren intervals, but all  with a uniform direction of dip. These  ore shoots vary from arfew feet to 1000.  Whoever takes a cheque upon a bank  in bis own town should present it for  payment on the day he receives it or on  the next day. During these two days  the drawer of the cheque guarantees  the solvency of the bank upon which   it  is drawn; but after that the risk must  be borne by the cheque holder. This is  the rule enforced by the' courts of all  the states.  There are but two government institutions authorized to receive ores for  assay, one at Dead wood, S. D., and the  United Assay Office at Charlotte, N. C.

Have 1 put the, matter too strongly ?  Possibly I have; but when all the world  has gone a slumming I wish to speak a  word of sympathy for the man who succeeds���the man who,againstgreat odds,  has directed the efforts of others, find  having succeeded, finds there's nothing  in it: nothing but bare board and  clothes.  I have carried a dinner pail and  worked for day's wages, and 1 have,  also been an employer of Iaboi, and I  know there is something to be said on  both sides. There is no excellence, per  se, in poverty; rags are no recommendation; and all employers are not rapacious and high-handed, any more than  all poor men are virtuous.

Quicksilver has sold for SI.55 per  pound in California in 75; in 79 it sold  for 88 cents per pound in California.  At present it is sold per flask at the  rate of 67J cents per pound.  As in California, gold is found in slate  in North Carolina. The same general  origin is ascribed to the gold formation  in both cases���the ascension of mineral-  bearing waters from solfataric depths.  Hydraulic miners have a theory,more  or less borne out by experience, that  when a gold-bearing- stream forka into  two or more bravches the source of the  gold is more often found in the right  hand branch.  The latent heat of fusion of gold is  10.8 calories. In the case of most metals  the latent heat of fusion is about one-  third the heat required to raise the  metal from absolute zero���'273 degrees  C ���to its melting point.  The 5-cent coin in use contains -25 per  cent, nickel, 75 per cent, copper. Nickel,  more than any other metal, has the  property of giving color to an alloy.  Even an alloy of 90 per cent, copper and  10 per cent, nickel will have the peculiar  nickel tint.  The carat, the unit of weight for  precious stones, carbons, etc., is 3.2  grains, varying slightly according to  different localities and authorities. The  international carat is 3.168 grains, or  205 milligrams. Francisco de Mello,  Rua Cons, Dantes, Bahia, Brazil, deals  in carbons.  The term "apex" does not mean a  point, when used in -connection with  mining lodes. It means the top of the  ledge or lode, the point which comes  nearest to the surface of the ground.  The part from foot wall to hanging wall  at the top of the, lode nearest the surface  is the apex.  The water storage required to produce 1 HP. for one hour, with an available head of 10 feet, would be represented by the capacity of a tank 20 feet  square and 10 feet deep; at a head of  140 feet the storage tank would still be  required to be 10 feet square and about  3 feet deep.  Glycerine used by powder manufacturers now commands 13 cents a pound.  At ruling rates for the manufactured,  product that means an average profit  to the powder manufacturer of about 25  cents per case. Glycerine at 10 cents���  the former price���would admit of a  profit of about 50 cents per case.  After issuance of a United States  patent to a placer claim lode thereon  g-oes with the patent find can not be  made the mbject of any adverse action.  If the lode, be discovered within the  limits of the placer location before  issuance of such patent it may be  located, and so far as it is concerned  the placer location would have to yield  to it.

Kruger has already intimated  what he would do if pushed to the wall,  though English investors try to console  themselves with a reported interview in  which the lion of the Transvaal is said  to have stated that the mines were perfectly safe. But nobody is certain that  the mines of the Hand are not to-day  underlaid with explosive gelatine of the  moat powerful and destructive character, ready to be touched off at a moment's  notice in case of a successful advance  upon Johannesburg and Pretoria.  Perhaps   few  fully  realize that the  Rand mines extend for a stretch   of W  miles.    Along these g-reat rows of mines  are seemingly endless mills, with their  thundering crushers and huge derricks.  The   whole   is flanked by great iron  buildings   where  thousands   of negro  workers live.   All  through  the year,  day and night, the work never ceases.  A mile deep the earth is drilled with  shafts, and here (i0,000 human beings,  like busy ants,  toil incessantly in  the  bowels of the earth at the living rock.  For miles away the deuce smoke and  the glitter of electric lights can be seen.  Solomon in all  his glory  in  search  of  adornments for his temple, was a beg-l  garly pigmy compared with  the  giant  god of greed which animates this mighty  cave where negro slavery exists m the  disguise of poorly paid labor.  Out of these vast caverns comes more  than one-quarter of all the gold mined  on the planet. The gold production is  about 59,000,000 a year more than all  America- They produce 811,000,000 a  year more than all the gilded strands  of Australia. They produce twice as  much as all the ltussias. These mines  are on the very edge of Johannesburg.  Within a few years it is believed that  the Rand will yield the fabulous annuity  of ��200,000.000. Here are gathered the  brawn, brains and enterprise of the  world, all in the frantic search for gold.  Only as far back as 1887 the Rand  yielded but 8400,000. Since then these  wealth-vomiting shafts have emptied  more than $380,000,000, and each year  the stream grows. But for the war now  in progress the last year would have  seen almost incredible, masses of gold  broug-ht to the surface, and the dreams  of Raleigh would have been quite dis  counted. One may well shudder at the  report that every shaft and every drift  in the Rand has its charge of dynamite  already laid, the very buildings undermined with the dreadful explosive,  while each cartridge of dynamite is  connected by a wire running to a central  station, situated in some unknown place.  dimly out of the shade'while the violins  in the orchestra uncurled about four  yards of chilly, ice cold shudder  the beautiful heroine with her 1  red hand upraised to heaven exclaimed,  James Heatherington. forbear."
