The Government statistics showing the imports of mining machinery into Canada last year show that
there has been a considerably increased demand for machinery of
various kinds, the total value in
1902 amounting to $851,000 which
increased last year to $1,281,000.
By the Customs regulations miuing
allowed free entrance, and we find
that last year duty was paid on machinery only to the value of $72,000,
the rest bei:ig imported free of tax.
Out of that which paid duty nearly
90 per cent, came from the United
State*, which still exports the
greater portion of the machinery
into Canada. With regard to wire
rope and cables, however, the trade
is principally in the hands of British manufacturers, and last year
thiscountry exported 1,847,000 lbs.,
ngainst 097,000 lbs. from the States.
The returns showing the imports of
steel and iron tubing also show tliat
by far the greater proportion of
these were supplied by British firms,
who might with advantage cultivate
the Canadian market for machinery
and hardware products generally.

Another great trek of Mormons
from Utah to Southern Alberta is
about to take place. Between four
and five hundred famlies, exceeding
2,000 persons, will invade Alberta
with their live stock, farm implements and household effects. The
district in which they will locate is
known asTaber, about twenty miles
square, on the Crow's Nest Pass
Railway. Preparations are now
under way to receive the new-
cornel's, who are due to arrive aliout
the middle of April. The Taber
district is said to be well favoured
with respect to moisture and climatic conditions.

Tucker took a small force up to the
Lou Dillon, and will start sacking
ore from the recent rich find made
by him on the property owned by
himself and Geo. Long. Two
claims are embraced in the group;
the Lou Dillon and the Del Mar.
A few months ago Tucker was
hunting bear in the vicinity of the
Fisher Maiden. He found his
fortune. In walking up the bed of
the creek he discovered an outcropping of remarkable richness. He
traced it for a distance of 90 feet,
and caught it on both sides of the
creek. It has an average width of
nine inches on the surface, and
from 20 assays made shows an
average value of 200 ozs. silver to
the ton. It is a self-fluxing dry
ore. The smelters give a very low
rate of treatment on such ore.
A cross cut tunnel was driven 40
feet to catch the lead at 30 feet
depth. A strong ledge with perpendicular walls was caught, and
in~drifting"fonr~~fef't~the ore-came*
in the face. The shoot is from six
to 10 inches'in width. It stands
clear on the wall and the ledge
filling has been removed for -40 feet,
leaving the ore to be knocked down
aud -acked.
The property is within 200 feet
of the main Four Mile trail and of
easy access, The owners expect to
ship several carloads of ore.

Our pathway through life is littered with   danger   from  the time
that we don our   first   shirt   until
weeping relatives   march   to slow
time behind us to that cold, clammy
and quiet place   called   the grave.
Every little while some unthought
of danger is brought to our notice,
probably to remind   us that life is
not entirely a   dream.    The latest
to come into the formation is frozen
eggs.    Eggs in a   congealed condition are dangerous   if subjected to
heat.    The fact   was recently discovered in Virginia.    A rancher in
that old placid but   historical state
went to his hen-house the other cold
morning, and  found   the floor covered with dead   hens   without the
sign of a coon   around the egg factory.    The hens   with their minds
eggs and the warmth of their bodies
had caused the high-priced fruit to
explode  and  usher  the innocent
birds into a sphere where the rooster
is unknown and   the tough spring
chicken is tabooed.     These «hens
were shot full of egg shells aud evidently died in great  agony.   The
provident rancher gathered up their
remains for chicken   soup and forbade the other   hens   making any
more dead sets.
This incident, trifling as it may
seem to the mud-brained mind,
warns us to be ever on the watch,
especially in Ontario. We know not
the day that we might sit down in
some hotel, call for ham and eggs,
and innocently be the cause of a
terrible calamity. The cook might
inadvertently sit a cane of frozen
eggs against a hot stove. Then perhaps just as we were reaching for
the mush a roar like a blast from
Dante's brimstone regions would
permeate the recherche surroundings and mingle us with the ruins,
covered with shells like a bunch of
Russians at a Port   Aithur picnic.
Look not upon tho egg when itis
cold and white in frigid silence,
for in the end it may burst like a
bomb, and spatter the pcenery with
the microbes of death. Wait until
the summer time when the frost is
iu the north aud trained hens make
their cackle just outside the kitchen
doors. It will be safe to eat eggs
in July. Just now we have'sworn
One thing leads to another.
Frozen eggs suggest bad eggs. Bad
eggs are found in every land and
are exceedingly cosmopolitan. With
a little practice, you can tell by
breaking them when they are bad.
Bad eggs occassionally explode
through their own depravity, and
give the ozone a pronounced breath,
while gloom becomes thick around
the spot upon which they pass away.
Beware of the bad egg at four bits
a dozen. It has ruined many a
purse, and raised more odor than a
bevy of she-prudes at a five o'clock
feastoftea, buns and scandle. When
properly treated the egg is a delight,
fit to be devoured by even gods and
editors. When ruined by age or
wrong treatment it becomes worse
than the perfume of a soap factory,
and more rotten than the politics
of good Toronto.

has put in the breast a certain chafing thought of dependence. Mr.
Bourassa and Mr. Goldwin Smith
have their views, but while the
former has ability and the latter
learning, neither could show a following of a corporal's guard. We
shall remain as we are for many
years to come, but the hour shall
strike when we shall separate from
the Mother Country—not to fall into
the arms of the United States, but
to set up independent housekeeping.
We need not fear that day, nor will
we hasten it. Our development
from this on will be rapid. In fifty
years from now we shall have between twenty and thirty million
people in this country. We shall
want then, possibly before then, to
express actual nationhood. We have
every reason in the world to hold
back from closer relation with the
United States. We have been
thwarted by the policy of that country at every turn. There has been,
J all the way through, deliberate de-
annexation, says: "Certain United
States papers are printing the alleged opinions of Canadians (who
are not named) in regard to the feeling of the Dominion in favour of
annexation to the great republic.
There is not a man in the Dominion whose opinion is worth anything who has advocated annexation. There was a time, indeed,
when annexation claimed the regard
of many of our most influential
men—a time of distrust of the
Mother Country, who had neglected
and hurt us, as we thought; and
there was a bitter feeling which
found expression in annexation sentiment. That has passed away. The
recent disappointment has not made
submitted because there seemed
nothing else to do, but we have not
forgotten. We admire the people
of the United States. They have
many admirable qualities. They
are the most alert people on the face
of the earth. They have produced
a type, from a medley of types astonishing for mental vigour. But
we do not like tbe methods of government; we do not like the domination of the political boss, though
we have had a hint of that ourselves;
we do not like the political despotism of the great centres which whips
the people into line; we do not like
the delirium which marks the pursuit of wealth; we do not like the
braggartism for which the republic

way unaided. She has, away in
advance of actuality, a thought—a
dim thought, but still a thought—
of independence—some day. To
place the whole of this northern
continent of America under one
cQotral government would be impossible. We shall not live to see
it, but there will be a great sister
republic unfurling its flag within
measurable time—a republic which
shall stand for peace and progress,
but which will be able to maintain
its own life without need of merging with the larger life of the great
neighbor to the south."
Our courts of law would probably
soon all be deserted if judges and
magistrates were to imitate the example of the Hungarian magistrate
in the following story:
At one time certain towns in Hungary received the right of self-government, and were in no sense attached to the counties, as were the
villages proper.
An English traveller once arrived
at one of these towns, aud, being
anxious to see the workings of the
national institutions, presented
himself at the house of the chief
magistrate and asked if he might
watch the administration of Hungarian justice.
The functionary, who was a short,
stout man, attired in a magnificent
Magyar costume, received him with
great politeness and begged him to
be seated. He then rang a bell,
which was answered by a gigantic
soldier-like official, known as a
pandier, who wore an immense
sword, a cocked hat, and a brace of
pistols in his girdle.
The magistrate inquired if there
were any cases for trial, and, being
answered in the affimative, he ordered a prisoner to be brought in.
The man was accordingly produced,
accompanied b}' the prosecutor and
his witness. The pandier then
stated the charge, which was that
the prisoner had stolen a goose belonging to the prosecutor.    The fol-
.lnwinor.„HJj«.lno-nA .t.hAn_Ansnpfl»	
changed by the lapse of years, he
hastened to don his opera clothes.
