In many cases the price  ���of lots has doubled since last winter.  Sandon has been a dead camp since  .June, but the trouble is adjusting itself  and that town promises to be a hummer  this winter. i  Nesbitt has a'line of confectionery  that .citizens and strangers should not  fail to inspect when their sweet tooth  becomes active.  It is a fortunate thing for the province  that the hig mining properties of the  Slocan cannot be picked up and carried  away across the Atlantic.  The animal harvest home festival will  he held in St. Stephen's church next  ���Sunday, morning and evening. The  ledihee will be handsomely decorated.  The boiler makers are busy with the  steamer Slocan at Rosebery, and this  handsome boat will soon again steam  over the most beautiful of all lakes in  America.  The band boys gave a much appreciated open air concert Tuesday evening,  ���which was followed by a social hop under the auspices of the lately organized  quadrille club, in Bosun Hall.  The C. P. ft. will soon make a change  in the running of their boats and trains  in the Slocan. The time will conform  with the decreased speed of the Imperial Limited in the winter time.  P.

Tlie Marion hassecuredan ore car and  track from IL Byers & Co.  The contract on the United Empire,  Ten Mile, has been finished. ,  A small force of men was put to work  on the Bosun-Fidelity this week.  Four men are working under contract  on the No. 5 tunnel of the Slocan Star.  One hundred and twenty-four tons of  ore was shipped from Whitewater last  week.  The Ivanhoe concentrator will be built  just below Sandon, on the west side of  the gulch.  The buildings at the Surprise'have  been put in shape to withstand the  snows of the coming winter.  The owners ol* the Adlai. on the Galena Farm, are building a cabin, and  will work that, property all winter.  N. Clarke Wallace M. P. was in the  Slocan last week. He is interested with  Alex. Smith in the Lucky Ed group on  Jackson creek.  Work will be commenced in a few  days on the Alice Murphy and  Dooley, two claims on Silver mountain,  I just above New Denver.  ! A B Docksteader last week struck  six inches of clean galena in an open cut  on the Monarch. The Monarch is on  Cody creek and was staked last fall.  David XV. King states that the Marion  is showing up well with development  and that there is no question but what  the bond will be taken up just as soon  as it is due.  Wor,k is proceeding steadily on the  Ruby, on Silver hill. A tunnel is being  driven to tap the lead 50 feet below the  rich ore uncovered three weeks ago,  an assay of which went 822 in gold and  13-ii)'05-s. in silver.  A strong talc ledge was encountered  this week in the tunnel on the property owned by R. C. Campbell-Johnson,  adjoining the Neglected. The present  showing is the best that has yet been  made on the property.  Senator Warner Miller, the head of the  syndicate backing Percy Dickenson, of  Slocan City, is expected in the camp today. They have under bond some 12 or  14 claims on the headquarters of Ten  Mile, aggregating in the neighborhood of  ^60,000 in value. These the syndicate  purpose developing this winter. In order to do this they will build a sleigh  road -rom the Enterprise wagon road to  the properties ind will make use of it all  winter.  wrong direction and was struck on the  shoulders. He is laid up for a few days  as a result, but will be around again  shortly.  A merry party of ladies and gentlemen started down the river in two boats  Saturday afternoon. In passing under  the lower bridge one of the boats struck  against a pier and capsized, throwing  the occupants into the river, when there  was a hasty retreat to the shore. One  young lady, performed a . very clever acrobatic feat by climbing up the pierand  safely onto the bridge above. There was  little damage done, but a thoroughly wet  and crestfallen picnic party could have  been seen striking up the side streets to  their homes.  LKAD   SMELTING.  Till  Canadian   Industry Should  be Pro.  fected  :ind   I'*iicourufj��tl.  The  position   with regard   to  lead  in  Canada is by no means satisfactory, says  the Toronto Globe.    The possibilities for  lead production in British Columbia are  very  great,   but  the    handicaps   under  which the business is carried on make it  impossible to  work  any  but  the richer  deposits, and those in which silver coraes  in to swell the values to'a profitable total.  The bulk of  the  lead  ore  produced in  British Columbia is smelted in the United  States.    Our  neighbors   have   fixed  their tariff as it  relates   to lead in much  the same  manner as  obtains  in  other  cases where   thev do not object  to  the  raw  product,   but  discriminate  against  tlie more  highly   manufactured article.  The position   is   not  exactly   the  same,  however, as in the cases of  nickel matte  or spruce and   nine  logs.    These are  on  the free list; lead ore is subject to a duty  of l>o cents per  pound, while  the  duty  on pig lead and lead  bullion is 2}4 cents  a pound.    There is a provision, however,  that lead may be smelted in bond, which  greatly helps the smelter interests in the  United States.    It enables them to pui-  chase ore in   Canada  aud  Mexico,   and  after smelting and   refining them to sell  cent.; litharge, raised-from free to  percent. In addition to this the tariff  would have to be altered so as to out  lead smelted in Canada hut refined in  the United States on the free list.  The proposition to raise the duties  on  white lead,   red  lead  and litharge is a  serious one.    The  trades  and manufactures   in   wliich   they   are used   would  scarcely regard  such  increases with   indifference   and   their   objections  would  have' weight.    The  other  branch of the  proposal,   namely,   that lead   extracted  from bullion  smelted  in Canada should  be re-admitted free of duty, seems  reasonable and  feasible.    As  matters now*  stand this lead is in a worse position than  lead coming  from   England.    A change  in this direction would give the Canadian  smelter a living chance and give the industry a start.    With the  gaowtli of the  Canadian demand we could look forward  to   the   time  when  the   whole  process  could be performed here. Besides giving  the lead man a betterchance in.the Canadian market, they would likewise be in  a position to  sell  their commodities in  neutral markets, and thus find an outlet  for any production in excess of the needs  of the Canadian market.   One advantage  of adopting a course which would lead to  the smelting of our  own  ores would be  that United  States  interests   would  be  more disposed to consider the advisability of removing  the   tariffs  which have  for their main   purpose  the  aggrandisement of American  smelting interests at  the expense of  those  of  the neigboring  countries.

SLOGAN  CITY   NEWS  IN"   I5KIKF.  The Skylark and Ranger is showing up  well.  J. M. Williams, who has the bond on  the Chapleau, is expected back Wednesday.  i The work on the Alexandra-Delia, at  I the head of Mineral and Tiger creeks, is  j still going ahead.  Mulvey A Clement are clown from the  Calumet & Ilecla. on Dayton creek.  They report that they are now getting  into'pay ore in their long tunnel. j  W. L. Potter has just returned from   a j  the product abroad, thus giving them a  good grip of the world's lead markets,  while not permitting the foreign ores to  compete with the native article.  These are excellent arrangements   for  the encouragement of silver-leading mining  and  smelting  and  refining' in  the  United States, but their effect is to make  it  especially  difficult  to   establish   the  smelting or refining industries in Canada.  The customs duties of 2y2 cents a pound  on pig lead cuts us off  completely from  the American market. The arrangement  for smelting in  bond exposes us to  the  competition of our own   ores if we seek  to gain a footing  in  the foreign market,  and our own market is denied to us for a  reason that  will  readily  be seen.    The  Canadian  miner, after having  his  ores  smelted and refined in the United States,  cannot profitably receive it back over the  border again, for it is then subject to the  Canadian duty of 15 per cent.    The fact  that  the duty on lead coming from England is 25 per cent, less  than if it came  from the United States causes what may  well be  called  a  fiscal freak.    The lead  extracted  from  Canadian  ores   in   the  United States is sent to England, wliere  it has free entry, and then it is returned !  to Canada  and  entered   at  the reduced j  rate accorded to all British commodities,  making the  duty   11   25-100 per cent instead of the  15   per  cent,   to which our  own lead is subject when  returned from  the American smelter.  How this unsatisfactory stale of affairs  The provincial government, through  Inspector Moore, has finally recognized  the need of repairs on the wagon road  to Three Forksanu has set apart $500  for this purpose, work commencing this  week. This sum it is thought will be  sufficient to put the road in first-class  shape for winter travel. In the spring  an additional appropriation of 86,000  will be made to make the road a permanent thoroughfare. Much cribbing will  be necessary and the road will be  widened. This is the best graded road  inthe country and the most used when  in condition. With the opening up of  the Silver mountain properties the need  of this road being put in first class condition becomes daily more apparent and  the government will keep it so. An  appropriation will also be made to defray half the expense of the road to be  built to the Marion, California, Hart-  ney and other developing properties in  that vicinitv.  five-sixths interest in the Slocan Chief  No. 10 and the Kootenay Queen claims,  situated on South Kaslo creek, by Percy  Dickenson, of Slocan City. He is acting for Senator Warner Miller and  other prominent American capitalists.  The bond is for ��18,000, covering one  year, with 10 per cent, paid down. The  owners were F. LoCasto and Alex  Sproat, of New Denver, and W. Francis,  of Spokane. Bert Pierson owns the  other sixth and will not sell just yet.  Mr. Sproat arranged the sale, having  squared up LoCasto's interest with the  sheriff, as it was to have been sold on  Thursday.  Jas. Moran, Chas. Greenlee, W.  Glynn and C. Faas are interested in the  other deal, also made to Mr. Dickenson.  It was on the Smuggler claim, close to  the Molly Gibson on Kokanee creek.  The sum involved is 810,000, with 10  per cent, down, the payments coming  in six and 1.2 months. This claim has  the same lead as the Molly Gibson, and  carries ore of very high grade The  work done has been confined to stripping the luad.  In both cases it is Mr. Dickenson's  intention to vigorously develop his purchases, and, having plenty ot capital at  his command, will place the claims on a  shipping basis as soon as possible.  CONTRACT    WORK    ��OKS.  John R. Turnbull also received a contract for building all bridges and trestles  between Stanley and Fort William.  Nelson  Brewing:. Company.  One of the many business institutions  that add to Nelson's  importance as the  supply centre of Kootenay is that of the  Nelson Brewing Co., of which R. Reis-  terer & Co. are proprietors.     This institution is steadily growing and a brick  and stone building of immense proportions has just been erected to meet the  demands of the ever  increasing- business. The present capacity is 50 barrels  a day of fine lager beer and porter, but  when the business of Kootenay and the  Boundary camps is  captured this capacity will be increased.     Mr.  Reisterer  says,   "Our beer is  brewed with  the  latest appliances.     Pure hops and malt  are used.    It appeases thirst,  refreshes  but does not intoxicate,  and is therefore the beverage suitable ror this western country where  brains and muscle  are the most essential commoditv."  Drowned  in Arrow Lake  Lamentable Fatal Accident.  A lamentable accident occurred near  Ainsworth, on Thursday, whereby F. J.  A. Bennett, Presbyterian student at that  place, lost his life. He was out shooting  and in some manner his gun was discharged, the contents badly lacerating  one arm. Mr. Bennett was alone at the  time, and when found was weak from  loss of blood. He was taken into Ainsworth, and subsequently to the Kaslo  hospital, where he succumbed next day  from his injuries, death being due mainly from loss of blood. The remains were  interred at Ainsworth on Sunday. De- \  ceased was an Englishman.aiid had been!  Some time ago the miners' union at  Silverton passed a resolution declaring  that members should not do work by  contract. This forced the men employed  at the Bosun and Wakefield to quit work.  Last week the union reconsidered the  question and finally withdrew the resolution, thus permitting the men to accept contracts in the lake properties.  This action is understood to be a com pro*  mise.  Kinily Kdith  IJuilding.s.  The Emily Edith has commenced the  erection of fine buildings at the mine for  the employees.

The messhouse  is to be fitted up in good style, with  quarters for the cook and help in addition to the kitchen and dining room. A  third building will be occupied as an  assay and general offices.

Brigadier General   William   Ludlow,  military governor of  Havana, is wTell remembered in Detroit, where he was stationed for  many  years, first as engineer  of the  Ninth  and  Eleventh  lighthouse  districts, and  afterwards as engineer in  charge of river  and  harbor work.    It is  recalled tnat while  lighthouse engineer,  an'Irish contractor, who had been doing  government work for a number of years,  visited Ludlow  and  introduced himself,  slyly laying down with  his  card a crisp  $50 bill.    It was his way of "feeling off''  a new man.  Ludlow neither effected to ignore the  incident, nor lose his temper over it.  On the contrary he looked at the card  and remarked pleasantly:  "So you ate Patrick Flaherty?''  "That is my name, sor," answered the  visitor.  "And you have called to see me about  getting some contract work  for the government?"  "I have, sor."  "Well, Mr. Flaherty," said Mr. Ludlow, "I suppose we can talk more freely  over a cigar.    Do you smoke?"  He drew from his pocket two cigars,  banded one to the contractor and placed  the other between his own lips. Then,  looking around on his table as if for a  match, and findim: none, he coolly took  the $50 note, twisted it into a lighter,set  ���pen grate fire, lighted  bis own cigar, and. without changing  countenance, passed the stump of the  burniii'r bill over to the contractor.

Now that the labor trouble is virtually settled, and the mine managers have accepted the enforced adjustment of affairs rather than make  a test cise of the law, we may look  for an early revival of business and  the sunshine of prosperity will gladden the camps of the Slocan.  Goldwin Smith does not think that  Dewey really deserves the amount of  admiration he is receiving for sinking a few Spanish tubs. Dewey is  probably overrated, but then. Gold-  win should not try to spoil Uncle  Sam's worship of an admiral. Our  cousins have a land full of colonels,  but as admirals are comparatively  scarce they should be allowed full  scope to roar about what they have,  got, even if the article is of the amateur kind.

It is here and is liable to stay.  When it is tried its advantages will  be so apparent that its repeal will  never be asked for. The trouble between the mine owners and mine  workers is adjusting itself satisfactorily to all concerned, and the less  that is said the better. Spouters on  either side should quit spouting and  saw wood.  Lieut.-Col. Sam Hughes, who mingles with the ozone around Lindsay,  Ont., is anxious to acquire breathless  fame by enlisting a regiment of Canadians to help him and England  thump the Boers in South Africa to a  gory finish. Sam, who probably  knows as much about war as a jack-  leg editor knows about a square meal,  should go it alone if his military  ardor is so intensely warm. Canucks  have no business mixing themselves  up with distant wars, or being-coaxed  to do so by mouth-nervy individuals,  who want a band of men to snatch  glory for them out of the jaws of cannons, while they can sit in the rear  and be called Colonel.  If a bass drum doesn't make good music it drowns lots of bad.  If a man is wise he never jars a hornet's  nest to find out what is in it.  It you want to know the defects of a  railway, consult the man who travels on  a pass.  If you take care of the pennies the  dollars will probably be blown in by your  heirs.  If the sun had nothing to do but shine  on the truly good, it wouldn't have togei  up so early.  If you would know what the wild  waves are saying,study the handkerchief  flirtation code.  If people wouldn't bite until they rind  out whether it is bread or stone there  would be fewer dental parlours.  If vou ask ii girl to name the prettiest  of her sex present at a social gathering,  she will invariably look embarrassed.  An exchange furnishes the following  little story, which points a very clear  moral:  "Said a local merchant the other day,  ���Have you noticed the fine advertisement I have out on the fence west of the  town?' 'No/ replied the customer, 'but  if you will send the fence round to my  house some day I will read it over and  see what you are dealing in. Fact is,  I'm reading newspapers and don't get  much chance to study fencenlogy.'"  One-half of all the coffee used in the  world is consumed in the United States,  or nearly twice as much as Europe,  which has five times the population.

TALES  OF THE  PLAINS  There isnothtng'that will cause more  excitement in a frontier post than.to  hear, in the dead of night, the bugler  blowing Boots and Saddles. To hear  the same call in the day time might  mean many things���drill, exercise for  horses, or mounted inspection to give  an officer an opportunity to show off his  troop to some favored visitor. But to  hear \* after Taps, and when the garrison is quiet, means only one thing, and  that is Indians.  It was winter of '('6 and '67 at Fort  Sedgwick, Colorado Territory. The  night was cold, bitter cold, so that tinmen on guard had to be changed every  hour instead of every two. The sentry  out near the big haystacks had just  called out the hour of half-past twelve,  and as the last words, "All's well," were  said, the clear .notes of the bugle could  he heard from the adjutant's office,  blowing' Boots and Saddles.  There was but one troop of cavalry  at the. fort aud three companies of infantry. This one troop had to do the  scouting and escort duty for one hundred miies in all directions, it war. commanded by Capt. John Fox, with Lieut.  Keene second in command. It was  said that troop M, Second United States  Cavalry, witli old Johnnie Fox at its  head, could whip a thousand hostile Indians. Be that as it may. it was called  on pretty often to perforin hard services.  Thirty-seven men, all that were able  to do. duty, were soon in the saddle,  with three days' rations and 100 rounds  of cartridges. We crossed the Platte  river on the ice, and headed for Pine  Bluff, in what proved to be one of the  most terrible. expeditions that I ever  experienced in my fourteen years upon  the frontier.  Of course, the officer in command was  the only one that knew the object of the  expedition, but before morning" we  learned that the government wood  choppers, at work sixty miles northwest  of the fort, were besieged by Indians,  and had not been able to leave their cabins to get wood or water for the past  ten days. A wood chopper, who had  made his escape from camp on the tenth  night of the siege, reported his companions as m desperate need of help. We  kept moving all night, and just at daybreak made Forty-Two Mile Ranch, or  Pole Creek Crossing, on the Laramie  road. The troop was commanded by  Lieut. Keene for some reason never explained, and the men were not allowed  to leave the ranks during the few moments we stopped at the ranch,although  ���many of us were more or less frost bitten 1 am sure there were not ten men  in the outfit who could lead and lire  their guns at this time.their hands were  so numb with the cold.  About two  miles  out from the ranch  we. rurned short to the right, and not a  thousand  yards  away   we saw a baud  ut    about     LOO    Indians    with    their  war paint on ; they had  stopped to prepare, arrows   We gave them a complete  surprise, charged their camp, and Jired  a few wild  shots, which  ought to Have  shown our   Lieutenant   how few of  the  men were  able  to  light.    The Indians  sprang to their  ponies, and were away  in a flash, with our troop sharp on their  trail     We   kept   within   rifle range of  them for three miles or  so. firing a few  scattered shots as we ran. but onlv two  took effect.    I Thought  every   moment  that the Indians must find out our helpless condition; if they had turned on us  we would have been   killed like sheep  in the shainbies.    I know that if my life  had depended on it  at  that moment, 1  could not have held my carbine, except  by letting it  rest  in  the hollow of  my  arm;  as for pulling the trigger,  that  would have been   utterly   impossible.  We lost sight of the Indians in a ravine  and halted for a short while.    The helpless condition  of the men   was  made  known to Lieutenant  Keene; but, nevertheless, we kept  on, and all that day  we wandered around in the snowdrifts.  Our only chance of  keeping alive was  by dropping off our horses every now  and then and running: when   unable to  keep up we held to the stirrup, and the  horses dragged us along      When   all  tired out  we  would   nmunt again, and  so it went on all day long-.  We, had now   been twenty-one hours  without (ire or drink, even  of cold wa-  ler.    Never  shall   I   forget  with  what  feelings of despair I  watched the night  approaching.    The  air  appeared blue,  and there was a fine mist  that froze;  to  man and beast, until  the whole troop  looked like white spectres.   1 know, in  talking among ourselves that not many  expected to live until  morning, unless  we got to shelter  and a  lire.    At times  we would become  so  scattered  among  the drifts that the  bugier  would be instructed to sound a   halt.    Poor fellow,  it was a strange noise, he made, with his  cold lips���and by  the,  way, he lost one,  of his feet on that trip, it being so badly  frozen that amputation   was necessary  At such times those  who   had the most  life would ride around, picking up   the  others who were  stuck   in  snow drifts  and had given up the struggle.    When,  we got together we. would plunge along  again.  About midnight we came upon a trail  and it gave us some hope of getting out j rived at four o'clock in the afternoon in  of our terrible sufferings. Imagine our j a blinding blizzard, and found that the  despair when, on closer inspection, we I Lieutenant's party was there ahead of  found it to be our own trail, and that us, and as the men began to dismount  we had been going around in a circle! most of them fell to the ground with the  The snow and mist, or sleet, was now (left foot stuck in the stirrup,  so dense that one could hardly see the I Colonel Kellogg, with his wife, and  man in advance of him: the wind was a ! their escorts, were'staying" at the ranch  perfect roar; the poor horses were be- \ over night; he was on his way to Fort  coming -weaker and weaker, and there ] Phil Kearnv.

We expected to stay and get  warmed up, and have some hot coffee,  hut the Lieutenant, hearing of a camp  farther up, where there was more wood  cut and  plenty of water,  started out  making three days and three nights in  the saddle, with tlie thermometer from  ten to .thirty-three leirrees below zero,  and.a. blizzard raging niort  the time.  until then that the awful condition of  the men became fully known, for as the  heat got to  the parts  frozen they became terribly swollen.    The next day  four six-mule government  wagons and  two mule ambulances  came from Fort  Sedgwick, and all  possible  speed was  igain     Never was there a greater mis-  made to get the frozen  men to the fort,  take, for the blizzard came on so severe J where they could have  medical attend-  that we were completely lost, and wan- j a nee.  The cold weather had not abated  dered about on that desolate ridge  for j to any extent, and it required sharp work  two days and a night before we got out,   to keep those of the men who were frozen the worst from going to sleep in the  waggons.

The spot where we passed  that terrible night is where the Union  Paein'e Railway depot now stands in the  town of Sidney, Nebraska  When  daylight came, we   knew we  must be in the valley through which  ran Lodge   Pole creek.   Strange as it  may seem, the Lieutenant planned to  cut across the plains to the Platte river,  a distance of :-30 miles at least, and then  by following down  the river, to strike  Fort Sedgwick; this he planned, knowing the possibilities of again being lost.  We found out, when it was light enough j.  to see, that there were two men missing.    One of these was  Private Frank  B. Flanders, who  dropped out during ; i  ;  the second  night.    He  was picked up j j/  three days   afterwards   by   the   wood'  train.    It   seemed   nothing short of a  miracle that he was alive.    He was put  into a waggon with  snow piled around  his legs to keep  them   frozen  until   lie  arrived at a place  where  he culd get  medical attendance.    He had been live  clays without food or drink, save what  snow he ate.   Snow,  by the way, was  all any of us had to eat  while  we were,  lost.    Flanders had   both   legs cut off a  little above the-inkles; in another month ;  he underwent, a  second  operation, and  had both legs cut off a little below the  knees.    He is now  living in Goffstown,  New Hampshire, or was. in 1S9S. i  Now, we all  knew  that by following  down the creek, it   would not be inany  hours until we, came  ro  a ranch where  we could  get refreshments  and a lire. !  It will be asked, was not the Lieutenant:  undergoing the same hardships as  the  men, or did he ask them to suffer more,  than he did:- There was one pack horse,  with the out-lit, and  his load was made j  up entirely of the Lieutenant's belongings, which included plenty of blankets,  so that he could be warm  anywhere he.  lay down.    He also   had  enough hard  pitch pine to cook a pot of coffee whenever he wished,  and   he  had  an extra  horse, and   a  servant  to  attend  to his  wants.    We all talked the matter over,  and came to the conclusion that in our |  pitiable plight it meant death for us to '  follow the Lieutenant, and  there was a \  committee of three appointed to go to  him and state our case.    I was one of  the three, aud, not at all  to my liking.  I   became  spokesman.   He treated us  with contempt, and  threatened to have ,  us all court-martialed.    I  told   him  1  would rather be shot for mutiny than to  die like a dog in a snow drift  We got orders to move, and the poor i  fellows who were unable  to mount  we'  helped to their horses.    The creek was j  to be the test of our discipline.    If the  Lieutenant   crossed   it   and   went   on j 1 9 j  south, it certainlv meant death to nianv I kJ(  who lost parts of their bodies, some aj  foot, others a hand; one, a German, went j  to blow his nose a week later and when  he got through he held  the fleshy part  between his lingers  and  thumb.    One.  man lost both   legs:  another   three fingers; one an  ear and the  heel of his  right foot, and  many  were discharged j  for disabilitv.

"Don't   you   hear   the   bugle soundin',
Trooper Jackson?
Come, shake yourself! There's trouble
down ahead!
With a lot of Texas rum they're making
matters hum!
She's   a-rootin'   'boots   an'   saddles!'
Out o' bed!
They're a-yelling'   like   the  devil down
the canyon !
A han'some lot of able-bodied Utes—
An' the orders is to rip 'em,
An' to slash 'em, an' to nip 'em,
So   jump   along   an'    tumble   in   your
boots!"
Oh !.the ride was  wild an'  darin'down
the bottom!
Just sixty men, where ten troops should
have bben.
Not  a tremble,  not a quiver,  as they
dashed along the river
At the howlin' horde of undiluted sin!
Like a teamster's whip the guidons were
a-snappin'!
My God! the Indians  numbered  ten to
one.
Through the blindin' rifle flame
They kept ridin' just the same,
With 'Old Glory' in the vanadeadin' on.
Like a catapult they hit 'em in the middle!
While  the  'trader's'   powder  tore its
dirty way.
An'the flamin'  sheets  o'  hell scorched
their tunics as they fell,
An' their yellow plumes were crimson
from the fray.
But the orders was  to give 'em a 'chas-
tisin' '—
With sixty men,where ten troops should
have been.
But they done it just the same !
An' they never thought to blame,
With the t'ortvdead an' dvin' carried in.

There is always an ill feeling between

but coal in the cellar has a more practical ring to it.

"Will you have'a piece of the pie.Mr.
Goodman?" asked Bobby's mother of the
minister.
"Thanks, no," he replied.
"Will you, Bobby?" she inquired.
"Xo, I think not," said Bobby, rather
hesitating.-
The minister looked at Bobby in surprise.
"I thought all little boys were fond of
pie," v*e said.
"They are," replied Bobby. "1 could
eat that hull pie, but ma said if you
didn't take any I mustn't, and she'd
save it for tomorrow.''
Aii'lri-diman went out on a little, bit
of a spree. He didn't get home till 3
o'clock in the niorniii"*, and vas barely
in the house till a nurse rushed up to
him and told him he was the father of
triplets. The Irishman looked up at
the clock, which marked the hour of.
three, then at the three in the nurse's
arms and said:
"Oi'm not superstitious, but thank
Hivens that Oi didn't come home at
■witlve."

One day Tommy accompanied his
