means a present to this Bank of Montreal

This great concession is, the Journal
believes, ii(,tho public interest, giving
strength and vigor to our banking system, upon which tho health and stability of all business and industry greatly
depend. It entails upon the banks ii
corresponding sense of public duty and
responsibility. A part of that sense of
public responsibility should apply to
the matter of circulating their notes in
clean paper.
The Bankers' Association of Canada
should take this mutter up in good earnest. But whether or no, each individual
bank should tackle the matter for itself

We doubt if any new country in the
world ever undertook to. handle its
educational system upon anything approaching to the munificent scale wlucli
obtains fnHiis proviTieer~0ur estimated
revenue for this year amounts, in round
numbers, to two and a quarter million
dollars, and out of this we will pay for
public school purposes a comparatively
enormous sum approaching closely to
half a million dollars: and tho out! in
not anywhere near in sight.
The cost of this department increases
each year at an alarmingly rapid rate
Hundreds of thousands additional expenditure marks its Annual progress.
How long can this continue? What
system can be devised as a change to
the existing state of affairs in this connection? Must direct and special taxation for school purposes be resorted to?
These are questions that must be faced.
No ono denies tho necessity of proviij.
Ing ftn adequate measure of educational
facilities for the youth of the laud; but
no one can fail to nee that comething

our expenditure for tliis end into keening with our provincial income. Would
It be possible to maintain a good avutcin
of this nature with fewer schools? It
does not seem very absurd to hold thut
this might be accomplished. Take our

direction the Adventure, Boulder,
Dreadnought and Mammoth claims, the
laiter being the nearest to Sand Creek.
North of Sand Creek the mica claims
held by Hevelstoko parties, including
Dr. Ca'rruthers, H. N, Coursier, B It.
Atkins, T Kilpatrick and others, are
located. Air. Smith bas taken mica
from a solid face on tho Mammoth claim,
but it does not show, so well as the
Bonanza Mr Smith and his associates
also hold three mica claims.the Eureka,
Tuscan and Grizzly, on the west side of
Canoe river, on a deposit running exactly parallel with the Bonanza deposit.
The mica deposits on the Bonanza
group occur in a vein of pegmatite, 80
feet in width. There are two other
veins on the property, one 40 feet wide,
and the other 60 feet In the large vein
an open cut was run 42 feet, then a
tunnel eight feet, and sinking done for
ton feet on the deposit. A breast was
then run 22 feet wide and ten feet high,
and from this work, which cost about
$10,000, ten tons of mica has been shipped.
From the Bonanza group shipments
have been made annually since 1898
This mica is worth from 25 cents to 815
per lb. One lot of 688 lbs sold to the
Seattle electric works realized $3,500 or
an average of $5.50 per lb. Fifteen
pounds of this mica cut into the extraordinarily largo size of 22 in. by 23 in.
This splendid mica was obtained from a
block weighing 360 lbs , but which, on
being dressed,yielded 90 lbs. of marketable mica, including the 15 lbs. of extra
large sheets.
The marketable mica mined will
yield about 50 per cent of 4x6 size, 20
per cent, of 8x10, and 30 per cent of
other sizes.   Mica cutting 8x10 is worth

There is little doubt but that when
transportation facilities are improved
those interested with Mr. Smith in this
veiiture.including S Winter,of Moncton,
N B„4!id New York parties, will have
a splendid investment in this property.
Hitherto the 'property has been worked
under the most terrible disadvantages.
There is no settlement at the Cache,
and horses, supplies and labor have to
be taken in each season causing much
lossof timo. Mr Smith says if the colony
which was talked of bei'ii" formed iu
Revelstoke carries out its intentions of
forming a settlement there it will bo a
great advantagiyii then horses,supplies
and labor could be relied on and work
could he carried on for a much longer
period each season,
1 They *Ve *ft& Bears
! First Party of Tourists Invade the Bear Haunts
of Wilson Creek.
Messrs. Shields, Glenam and Wright,
respectively from New York, Baltimore
and Spokane, came into New Denver
on Saturday. They intend spending
two months 011 Wilson creek hunting
silver tips, Thoy have male their
first camp about 11 miles up the creek.
Eight pack animals took up tlieir sup
plies on Sunday. It will be seen that
they are loaded for bear, as the train
carried almost everything a hunter
needs, from whiskey tb kodaks.
G. O. Shields is editor of Recreation,
a New York magazine devoted to hunting and similar sports. He was, or is,
president of the American Sporting-
League, and his presence for such a
long time in the Slocan will assist our
tourist trade. Mr Shields will publish
illustrated articles of his experiences up
Wilson creek, and this alone will be a
great advertisement for the scenic and
fame .-attractions ofthe btmutiful Slocan.
t is to be hoped that many more parties
like Mr. Shields' will soonbe camped in
our midst.

Sympathy changed the expression of
Rhodes' face as he stepped down to the

SOUWAB'S   conckssion.
Charles M. Schwab, president of the
United States Steel Company, is fond of
poker.and when in Pittsburg frequently
enjoys a friendly game at his home.
One evening this winter, just as the
timo limit was approaching,Mr Schwab
and one of the guests, a Pittsburg merchant, came together with good cards.
After a stiff raise or two the others
drop]led out, and the bets went back
and forth until the merchant had no
more money.
"I want to raise vou, Schwab,'' he
said, "can I put up an 1.0 U :-"'
"Don't like to take paper jn a card
game '' said the ateel man. "If you are
so sure you have the best cards why
don't yon bet your trousers!'"
"How much" are tlmy worth?" asked
the merchant,
•Put thein in for t'*h" said Mr.
He called the bet and won.
"I II have to trouble you for those
trousers," he said as the party prepared
to leave the card room.

The woman who would have
beautiful teeth must remember that
three'things are necessary;—they
must, be white, sound  and strong.
l-ryr the teeth to meet this description, one of the first, or probably the very first, requisite is
cleanliness of the mouth. Without
this precaution there, can be no
preservation of the teeth or gums.
Again, as the condition of the
teeth depends greatly upon that of
the -stomach,  it is  essential   that

that organ should be kept in good
order. An indirect, though very
sure way of bringing on decay of
the teeth and aii offensive breath is
to overload the stomach with rich,
indigestible foods. If, in spite of
a discreet diet, the teeth sometimes
get out of order,a simple and effective remedy may be found in a tablet
composed of soda and mint dissolved iu a little water and taken
after meals.
It is a very simple matter to
keep the teeth in order, if one will
once cultivate the habit of giving
them a few minutes each day.
With a good brush, which has
bristles neither hard nor soft, a
wholesome powder, devoid of any
gritty substance, and a pure mouthwash, one may keep the teeth and
gums in perfect order indefinitely.
Listerine makes an efficient
mouthwash, but for those who prefer a myrrh lotion a simple recipe
is the following: Gum mastic,
powdered, 2 drams; balsam of Peru,
A (Irani; orangeflower water, 5
ounces. Mix into an emulsion,
and then, shaking continually, a*dd
three drains of myrrh. This is
especially effective when the gums
are diseased, or the teeth loose.
An unpleasant breath is often
attributed to decayed teeth, when
the teeth are in no way affected,
and the odor arises entirely from
the stomach. As a cleanser for the
stomach a remedy whose virtues
are extolled as highly as those of
soda and mint, is hot water. It
should be taken   on   arising,  and
also between meals.   The generous
use of limewater is also helpful.
There are many arguments advanced against the eating of sweets
in connection with the teeth. To
these it may be answered that eaten
in moderate quantities sweets, if
pure, will not hurt the teeth. The
only essential is that the mouth be
thoroughly washed afterwards.
This, too, should be an invariable
rule after meals, and if even after
the mouth has been rinsed, there
are still accumulations in the teeth,
these should . be removed with a
dentist's thread, strands of which
may be purchased at any drug

"My boy,"  said   Uncle   Hiram,  once,
.,       - while giving* tao advice,
I'   ' ".< ■     "The saw that doesn't wabble is the one
that cuts the ice,
The saw that close applies itself, within
-. its narrow groove,
,.y       Will soon or late fulfil its work by keeping-on the move.
When half way  through, temptation
may beset it, like as not,
To leave the place that seemeth  hard
and seek a thinner spot;
But shifting saws will learn, at length,
when failure they invite,
There's many a way o' doiir' things, but
;, only one way's right!
"And bear in mind, my  boy,   through
life, if tempted tasks to shirk,
Success is but a second crop, the after
math of Work,
A lubricator tried and true is Perseverance Oil,
p And Fortune's smile is rarely won except by honest toil
A safe cross cut to Fame or Wealth has
never yet been found,
The men upon the  heights  today are
those who've gone around,
The longest way, inspired by the savin',
somewhat trite,
There's many a way o' doin' things, but
only one way's*right."
I knew my Uncle Hiram had achievement's summit reached;
1 knew him as  an   honest  man  who
practised what \\e preached—
And so 1 paid the lesson heed, and nipt
attention gave,
When, in an  added  afterthought, he
said:   "My boy, be brave!
Act well youi- part; tenaciously to one
straight course adhere;
Though men declare you're in a rut-
work on, and never fear:
You'll realize, when   vou,  at  length,
have reached achievement's height,
There's many a way o' doin' things, but
onlj* onu'way's right!" *
—uoy V. Green, in April Success.
The coronation is now the one
absorbing topic of conversation in
society. The subject haa been a
daily increasing one for months,
but since the new year began it has
developed by leaps and bounds,
until now nothing else is thought
of or talked about. There might
be no war going on in South Africa,
no session of Parliament sitting,
debating and voting away the nation's money at Westminster, no
theatres. Indeed, dinner-parties,
"small and earlies," and balls
would excite but little interest in
the West End, did they not furnish
a field for the discussion of the en-
_ grossingjopie of the hour.    Natur
ally, the chief question of interest
to Americans who are already coming over in shoals is: "How am I
going to see the coronation?'' How,
as a matter of fact, unless he (or
she) be a special embassador, such
as Mr. Whitelaw Reid, or in his
retinue; or belongs to the regular
United StateB embassy in London,
no American citizen, male or female, will see the coronation. They
will have to be in Westminster
Abbey to do that; and the space
within the power of the authorities
will barely supply room for the
cream of the people who have a
sort of right to be there.
1 dare Hay it is generally thought
that both Mr.Pierpont Morgan and
Mr. Andrew Carnegie are sure of a
place. But these gontlemen will
find that, on this occasion, their
wealth won't help thein. Thus,the
coronation of King Edward the
Seventh of England will offer one
occasion where money will not
have power, In other words, "The
free list will be suspended," to
which we may as truthfully add,
"The press excepted." Yes, all
London, aye, and all England, and
the rest of the world, except the
chosen few who are to lie given
entrance to Westminster Abbey,
will have to content theniHclveH
with reading about it in the evening or ou the next morning, and he
Mitihllcd with a view of the king's
procession to and from the Abbey.
And so will the American ladies
and gentlemen who have already
begun the trimwatlantie rush to
England. "(Joing over to ace the
coronal ion," is what 1 hey-tell
evcryliody. A Ina! for their pretty
Innocence, They will hco the procession, that's all.
And juwt fancy what the streets
will lie like! The man in the street
on coronation day will he a thousandfold what lie ordinarily is,  for
cression will, on Thursday, Jup-5
26th, leave Buckingham Palace by
the sovereign's gate and proceed
by Constitution Hill, Piccadilly, gti.
James Street, Pall Mall, Cockspur
Street, Whitehall, and Parliament
Street to Westminster Abbey-
After the coronation the retur*1
journey will be much shorter, an-^
will merely include Whitehall
again, and then turning in at th0
Horse Guards, traverse the Mall-*
simply, and so regain Buckingham
Palace. What is known as th#
great procession will take place oV
the following day, and the rout-0
will virtually be through London*
embracing the Strand and eastward
through the city, and be identical
with that followed ou the occasion
of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubi'
lee in 1897. This latter display
will be a more popular pageantjbuti
the first day will be mostly fof
"Bmart" people,and in that respect/
it will be more to the taste of the
American cootingent of sight-seers.
A comparison -of the charges for
house frontB and windows on tin?
occasion of the first day's "show"
with those asked in the city on the
second day, will, perhaps, give
sufficient point to what I say. Th-y
windows of St. George's Hospital,
fronting on Constitution Hill, command from $1,250 to 81,500 each.
So in St. James Street, windows
supplying from 20 to 30 seats eau
be had for three hundred guineas;
while the lowest price for a window
in Pall Mall containing from 20 to
40 seatSj ranges from three hundred aud fifty guineas to'five hundred guineas. In Piccadilly the
prices of windows are pretty much
the same, one shop-keeper offering
the entire front of his building for
$5,000. On the other hand,for the
second day you can get a window
in Ludgate Hill for from $500 to
$2,000 according to the "floor";
while the highest price is in Scovell
Road, Borough Road, where they
ask $3,500 for a window.
So, single seats in the West End,
to which the first day's procession
will be confined, range higher than
in the city or south of the Thames.
Thus, for a seat in a Piccadilly or
St. James Street window you will
have to pay from $7.50 to $25,
while in Scovell Street you can get
a seat for $5. However, strange
to say, in some parts you will have
to pa}r higher for a single seat iu
the Strand, than they will ask you
in Pall Mall. BjitJbhe-JBlucidatioji
of this seeming paradox lies in the
fact that "smart" people will not
want single seats. Rich provincials
are the fish for the second day nets.
The-first day and the \Vest End tu-0
what Americans will want, aud a
matter of dollars is not going to
stand in thc way of their getting
it. The king has formally ordered
that the day following thc coronation shall be observed as a general
bank holiday as well, so that, as
Saturday will thus by tacit consent
become a virtual holiday,' London
will be en fete from Wednesday
night to tha following Monday
For tne benefit of women readers
lot me add a few facts concerning
the robes to be worn by Queen
Alexandria during the coronation.
She herself has decided that they
shall be as up to date as possible,
She has no wish to look like a pie-
ture painted iu the Middle Ages, or
to resemble a queenly portrait
taken from Andrew Lang'a fairytales. Nor will she walk under •_
canopy. She has put her foot
down on that point. But the old
custom of having her train borne
by her three daughters she iH likely
to adhere to. They, by the way,
will bo conspicuous during the coronation ceremony. For, with the
death of Queen Victoria, her children (the king,of course, excepted)
immediately became Kccoiidttrv u>
the children of thc king. Thus,
Princess Christian, 1'rincti.H Louise
(the Duchess of Argyll), Princes*
Henry of Hattenherg, the Duehe.su
of Saxe-Coburg-Uotha (widow of
the Duke of Kdinhurghj,tho Duchess of Albany, nnd the Duchess of
Counaught, all must give way to
the Duchess of Fife, Princess Victoria, and Princess Charles of Denmark, and llie wife of the Prince
of Wales, who now   precedes   the

The following" words of wisdom"
from a recent American publication
*u*e quite as applicable to Canada
as to the United States:
Many people seeking uo further
than personality lay much blame
Upon the politicians for the situation as it is." But the blame lies
Hot with the politicians; it lies in
the general apathy and erroneous
ideas. The kind of politicians we
have today is the kind of politicians
the people through mistaken ideas
themselves create. The successful
politician of today owes very little
to the people. True, their votes
elect him. 'But what of that?
Their votes would also elect A or
3 or C as quickly as they elect
him, if either of these were to receive the nomination of the convention. The nomination is what
he must look to, and that means
he must look to the monopolies, for
they fix the nomination. Now,
then, if the monopolies fix up the
ticket, of the R party and also fix
the people unanimously vote either
of these tickets, and thus a, politician receives office, he considers
the monopoly who put him on the
tiokofc ae hie master.
If you were to ask this politician
\vhy did he not  consider  himself
indebted or under obligation to the
people, he would tell you (<that the
people did not vote for   him,   but
Voted for the ticket,"   and   which
Would be a solemn truth;   that the
monopolies offered him the  office,
providing he would serve their interests during his term, and which
if he did  faithfully,   they  would
ftgain place him on the ticket which
they regularly give to the people to
Vote.   Now, then, to expect a man
to represent the people who receives
hothing from the people, and who
Would   never—could   never—even
get on the ticket if he stood by the
pcoplo,and whom the people would
Vote into the poor house if the corporation-* did not put him on their
ticket.—-J say to expect such a man
to stand by the people is to expect
■something from him which is radically impossible for him to give.
Vet in the face of these facta we
liave heard some one say that the
people are betrayed by politicians.
Who has not heard this over and
over, again and again? Who haa
hot heard about tricky, designing
jJoliticiaiiH, public thieves, peculating knaves, false demagogues, selling, bartering the interests, rights
iimi libortiea of the people? Kvery-
We have heard thia, read this.

In other words, how much is

you live ?
Have you got any. and is it the

Are you willing to back it up

Or are you a dry old stick, whose

"the winter of our discontent?"
Do you know what enthusiasm
is, and are you willing to call it by
its right name?
_ Enthusiasm in a child is recognized as vigorous, open-hearted
As gladness intensified.
In man, we are prone to look
upon enthusiasm as the result of
a screw loose somewhere.
And enthusiasts are winked at
as men devoid of business judgment;
A mild form of lunatic.
And there are jnen who are so
afraid that people will really become convinced that they are "just
a little bit off" that they object to
having ' 'enthusiastic''' associated
with tlieir name.
If they but accepted the word in
its true, its deepest meaning, they
would glory in the appellation.  •
Enthusiasm     properly    defined
It means passionate zeal;
Intense interest;
Heat of imagination.
A man must be mentally, morally and dispositional^ strong to be
an enthusiast.
An enthusiast is a man who can
sink himself in his personality aud
at the same time force his personality into the object aimed at.
No man ever stood deuce high in
service to the world who smothered
his enthusiasm.
To be an enthusiast means to be
everlastingly a knocker of dead
men's idols;
A thorn in the side of men who
won't grow.
But all great men were enthusiasts in their way.
They could not have become
great if they had not been.
But all enthusiasts have not become gveat, as the world looks up-
on greatness.

Creature of night; bold, brazenly immoral,
Responsible to neither gods nor men;
From out the dark thy irreligious choral
Jars on my nerves and angers me again.
V-Vlu-n dog* and other honest brutes are sleeping.
And not a cur awakes to bay the moon.
With low companions thou thy watch art keeping
And giving tongue to thy unlovely tune.
What demon,deep within thy black heart hidden,
What b.ise promoter of foul deeds and strife,
Malignity and hate aud war has bidden
Thee lead that dissolute and vicious life?
Art thou provoked by influence infernal
To levy war on all thy wretched kind.
Profane the air with revelry nocturnal.
To gratify thy dark and bloody mind?
Thy fur, once thick, is largely dissipated,
Thy ears are notched, thy lips arc gashed and
Six inches of thy tail has heen abated,
Thou art a thing to look upon with scorn.
Yet why waste hard-wrought verses in denouncing
Thy manifold transgressions, callous oat?
The word for vou I'll lose no time uronouncing,
Take good care that you heed It.ThoinaB; Scatl

The vice of drug-taking' which has
taken so firm a hold on the livok of society men and women is developed to
such an extent and in such curious, directions that it threatens to become a
serious and all-povvadina evil.
Most drugs are taken for tlie sake of
-soothing the nerves and producing-
sleep, but a new drug has lately been
discovered which owes its value to tlie
fact tliat it is regarded as a substitute
for natural rest. Modern men and wo
men who are not now content with a
day of twelve hours, but wish to live
and enjoy as many as possible of the
twenty-four, now'carry in their little
silver"bonbonniers or embroidered bag
some innocent-looking white tabloids,
tliey declare entirely do away with tlie
want of sleep*
"it seeniB so lazy," said a well-known
young;man about town the other day,
"to sleep away eight hours o[ the twenty-four."
People will no longer allow themselves
the necessary amount of fciino for sleep
Tliey are so worn-out and exhausted
witti too much work or too much play
that tljey gradually become entirely
enfeebled, and aro quite ae unwilling as
they are unable to rest.
.With the loss of health, thoy lose as
well the wish to eat, and another now
drug, which is now being exploited in
Paris, claims for itself that henceforth
no one will need either nourishment or
The fact is, society life today is so
entirely artificial that it is only by a
constant use of drugs, the most common
of which aro morphine and cocaiuo,that
its devotees are able to get through
their day.
Some of its popular favorities, the
women without whom no ball or party
is complete,aro often invisible for hours
under the influence of some deadly
Morphiiie has its uses in illnesB as it
has the effect of inducing drowsiness
and a desire for sleep. On the regular
consumer, however, it has an exactly
contrary effect—stimulating the brain
tion.   si
Unfortunately, tliis artificial stimulation is but temporary. By degrees the
victim of the morphine habit is easily
recognized on account of the apparent
weakness and lassitude which succeeds
each dose; while gradually the brain
softens and the man or woman becomes
The effect of cocaine injection are not
so easily apparent, for unlike morphine,
its use does not contract the pupil nf the
eye, nor does it make peoplo look pale
nnd ill It is, nevertheless^ dung-emus
-stimulant, bracing one up momentarily
ton great extent. Hy degrees, 'however, it deteriorates tlie moral system.
and the regular cocaine taker becomes
incapable of telling the truth.—Loudon

The brakeman at a certain station ou the Northern Pacific Railway had been granted leave for the
purpose of being married. In addition, he. was given the customary
return railway pass.
During his absence a new ticket-

upon Benedick's return, demanded

and marriage certificate in the same

Some very good stories are told,
savs the New York Times, of the
impression made upon those who
attend for the first time the very
High Church Episcopalian service,
with its elaborate ritual and its
extraordinary musical features, at
.the church of St. Mary the Virgin,
New York. The reply of a very
prominent Roman Catholic priest,
when asked by the friend who had
taken him there how he liked the
service, "Well, really, I prefer te
simple ritual of my own church,"
is a current story at the clubs.
Even more amusing was the
comment of the elderly Scotch
woman whose relatives said to her
as they were, leaving after the service: "Well, Aunt Janet, did you
enjoy the service?"
"A' weel," said Janet, in response, "it's verra.interestin', but
what a w'y to spend the Sabbath!"
