they have a mine in the Fisher Maiden.
The Alabama Warblers, or probably
Wobblers would be a more appropriate
name, played to a good house of white
folks in the Lucerne last week. With
the exception of McKanlass the show is
hardly good enough to get three miles
from a plantation. Some of the jokes
were old when Coal Burgess was in
flower, but this cut no frost with the
Wobblers.   They shoved the aged gags
with some of them to be ahead of all
others and they are meeting with much
the same results as tlie discoverers of
Lightning creek. Their report anyway
is the same.
Notwithstanding the report of these
men and Morrison we believe the value
ofthe discovery to be no more determined than it was when the lirst discovery was made.
It will be fullv a month or perhaps
later before any fair trial of the ground
can be made and it seems foolish for
persons to. think they can accomplish
anything satisfactory with two and a
half feet of snow covering the ground.
All gold discoveries have had just such
reporte made of thein as tliis p&rty give
about tlie Horsefly and so it is bound to
\ie until their value is proven —Ashcroft Journal.
"InWth^oMWwt tEouTthel t a st tremor

people are so patient and so much like
Christians that they merely turned their

engagement there this week.
There nre more dollars in New Den.,
ver than lifty-cent pieces. At least,
a dollar-straight show will draw a bigger house than a lifty-cent show. The
Fiechtl Comic Players weie given a full
house at Bosun Hall Monthly evening,
and everybody paid a dollar. But it
was not worth it. The first two numbers on the program should have been
left behind the curtain. Thev had'not
enough merit to haitg a fig-leaf upon.
But the Birds pleased everybody, and
the Manhattan Trio and Fiechtl Quartette, and the little Troubadours were
as good as anything ever heard here in
that line. Thorn was grace and melody
combined In what the Troubadour* did,
and if the piano thumper had made less
noise and more harmony this number
would have been worth the price of admission alone.

Silverton may well feel proud of its
local talent. The third annual concert
given in memory of St. Patrick, in aid
of the Silverton Catholic church, was
held in McKiunon's hall on Saturday
evening. The hall was crowded, and
tlie audience heartily enjoyed one of
the best evening's entertainment that
has even been given in the camp. In
addition to the. many excellent numbers
given by Sih'erton talent. Miss Bennett
and Mr. Worden of Slocan City ap-
peared.   Their iuunber^__\yeriiJ:e.ciiLV.ed
with unstinted praise. A feature that
is prominent in all concerts given in the
sister camp is the part taken by the
juvenile, element, and on Saturday evening their performance was entitled to
;inil i-eeoivml tlio wnrinottt npplatise.

The acreage has been doubled since
1898. The average yield is 18.(3 buahels,
If the reuiaininjr land is as good as that
under crop, and if the same proportion
is devoted to wheat, there will be an
acreage of 17,000,000, and an average
crop of more than-800,000,000 bushels,
which would supply all that Great
Britain wants and leave plenty for home
consumption and other exports
Manitoba, however, is by no means a
wheat country exclusively. The oat
crop last year was 27,79fi,588 bushels
raised on (589,951 acres. The average
yield since 188!) has been 35 bushels,
but a yield of 100 bushels is not uncommon. Barley and other grains thrive
exceedingly, and the roots are famous.
The crop last year was2,925,H62 bushels,
averaging 286 bushels on 10,215 acres.
The live stock last year included 112,088
horses, 2i!3,168 cattle, and 22,960 sheep.
The raising of hogs is receiving increasing attention, and last year the number
had risen to 91,680 A large packing
and exporting business may be expect
ed. The exports of Manitoba wheat
and Hour in tht) last few years have
been as follows:' 189(3,14,000,000 bushels;
1897, 22,000,000; 1898, 23,000,009; 1899,
30,000,000; 1900,17,000,000; 1901, up to
Dec. 31. 23,000,000.
The total amount of ore shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan City mining
divisions for tho year 19ul was, approximately, 80.000 tons. Since January ]
to March 15, 1902, the shipments have
been as follows:

California is a notable example
of what can be done in the tourist
line. Los Angeles is built in a
desert, yet its population has in' \i
decade increased from 50,000 t\
over 100,000, principally through!
the tourist trade, for a very small
city would answer the natural requirements of that section. The
city is 10 miles from the sea, and
its climate, aided by the liberal use
of printer's ink has made it what
it is today. Huge hotels have
been erected all over Southern California to accommodate the vast
trade. In Los Angeles another
hotel costing 8350,000 has recently
been opened. Pasadena, a city of
10,000. has two hotels capable of
holding nearly 1,000 people, and
providing for them in a style that
is hard to beat in Xew York. At
Coronado beach, near San Diego is
to be found the largest seaside
hotel in the world, while that little
beauty spot, Santa Barbara, with
only S.000 population is building
a hotel that will cost not far from a
million dollars, In dozens of places
can be found large hotels filled to
the roofh with gueata from all out
the universe. The service at these

gazing at the visitor as upon a

which accompanied the words was
too much for the clerk; he stared
speechlessly. "Very well," continued the magnate with vigor.

petrified clerk looked alarmed about

assurance that the bank was not in

Faithfulness does not tell to your

Faithfulness lives upon love, not

We must love first before we can

To be faithful we must not say

To be faithful we must not do all

Over in West Virginia on one of
the railroads is a little town called
Sawyer. Close to the town the
train passes through a "tunnel. One
day a nice looking young couple
were on the. train, and they never
seemed to know that there was anybody else on the train. Oblivious
to their surroundings they were
like two souls with but a single
thought. AVhile the train was
passing through the tunnel those
near the young couple heard a suc
cession of suspicious smacks something like a kiss with a dozen
echoes. Afterthe train had passed
through the tunnel the brakeman
came through the car and called
out,"Sawyer," and the timid looking young man looked up and said:
"I don't give a diirn if you did.
We are married."
Archbishop Ryan's friends tell
this story of his grace: The archbishop was about to take a train
for Baltimore at the Broad street
station,when a young man accosted
him, saying:
"Your face is familiar. Where
in hell have I seen you?"
"I really don't know," said the
archbishop, blandly. "What part
of hell do you come from?"

Hence, our love for the Germans.
"Speaking of national likes and
dislikes reminds ine, Wales, of a
lot. of rot that is eternally being
printed both in the United States
and in your country about the
'friendship that exists between the
United States and England.' Such
bosh makes me weary. Of course
you and I personally are good
friends. Ours is a friendship of
long standing; a friendship which I
trust may never be 60 broken as to
require a brace; but I am positive
that, so far as our nations are concerned, there is not a particle of
real love existing between them.
"You have your English flunkies
who come over here and attempt
to out-American  Americans.    We
know them and   smile  at  them.
Then we have  a   large  gang of
flunkettes who go to England, and
run their shirts off trying   to   exhibit their zeal for Johnnie   Bull.
Your people turn one eye-glass on
them and turn sick at the stomach..
When it comes to bed-rock, Wales,
the English people and the Americans don't like each other one bit,
and  if an   occasion   should   ever
arise, you will find that the spirit
of 1776 is  about  '250 proof  and
growing stronger as the years pass
by.    All this fol de roi about   the
coalition of 'England and America
exists only in the muddled imaginations of a lot   of   clabber-headed
space-stuffers, who could not   tell
the   difference   between   complete
compression and  absolute  expansion.   Should the time ever come
when large national   interests are
involved, our nations   will fly at
each other like saloon   bums at a
free lunch.

I was not at all surprised last
Tuesday morning when I received
a cablegram which read as follows:
"Are you coming over to see me
[Signed] A lbkut Edward, •
formerly of Wales."
I was not surpi-ised, I repeat,
from the fact that I have known
Albert Edward for years, and there
has never been one cross word between us. I at once sent him the
following letter, and as we have
nothing to conceal, I am perfectly
willing that the world should read
it: .
"My Dear Wales—
"Your message received, and I
would have cabled you, but some
time ago our dam broke, and our
cable got lost in the shuffle. While
it is true that we have a street car
cable in Austin, I was afraid to
try a message over it. Judging by
the way the cars are run under the
present management a cablegram
Bent you via the Austin Rapid

days after Gabriel had finished his

would have forgotten that you ever

if I have to walk. A whole lot of
other Americans will make the
trip, but I don't propose to mix up
with 'em. I have been invited to
join the Roosevelt party, but declined with thanks.    When I go off
on a, little jaunt like that I never
like to be bothered   with   women,
until I get there.
"I don't believe Mr. Roosevelt
will go; in fact, he has told me he
would not.    You   see,  Wales, he
has a Congress on his hands,, and
it is a job.    It takes Mr. Roosevelt
it under herd.    I had rather try to
corral a bunch of Texas steers in a
burning cane brake than hold down
an American Congress.   It's awful,

ago, regarding my costume, in case

with you, I don't think  I   would

"Refering again to the crown
piece, you may look for me over
there on time. In this connection
I would suggest that if yon have
not placed an order for it, you
might save money by having it
built in the United States. Some
of your best people trade right
along with us, and buy everything
from a railroad locomotive to a
wife, and outside of the wives, I've
heard no complaint. I'm of the
opinion that you could get a first-lass crown here for half the money
it would cost you in England. You
see, there's no market for 'em here,
and hence they are cheap. I have
never seen one worn in Texas, and
if I had one I would not know how
to buckle it on.

something of interest by reading
this article to the end:
Bavaria has, since 1S07, couipul-'
sory   vaccination.      Whoever has
been in the fatherland knows what
compulsory means.    In 1872, after
the people of  Bavaria   had  been
vaccinated and revacciiiated for a ]
period of 65 years,   that   country
had a   smallpox   epidemic.    Over
30,000 persons were sick with the
pox and, queer as it is,some 29,000
of these 30,000 had been just previously vaccinated.    This fact was
revealed by the vaccination records.
Prussia had an epidemic in   1871,
during which no less than   64,000
persons died from   smallpox, and
Prussia was then a well vaccinated
Upon the official vaccination and
smallpox records Dr. Bruckner
(Basel) bases the following remarks: "The official smallpox
records furnish the clearest, proof
that all smallpox epidemics of late
years have had their beginning
amongst the vaccinated and revacciiiated.*" -
It is a known fact that Bohemia
is the best vaccinated and the worst
smallpox-ridden country in Europe.
In Germany it has been officially
admitted that vaccination is blood-
poisoning. The health office in
Berlin has admitted that in 1891
over 1000 deaths were caused by
In 1890 Theodore Poppe published the following sentence:
"Vaccination is syphilitic poisoning. '' He was duly prosecuted in
the courts for contempt of the vaccination law. The prosecuting
attorney called as witnesses for the
state upon Dr. Ouewell (Berlin),
the highest medical authority on
vaccination. On Sept. .'5.1890, this
same authority made the following

I follow Peczely's method of diagnosis I am in a position with certainty to demonstrate the evil
effects of vaccination to that of a
syphilitic nature. Most of the
people will have to suffer a lifetime
from this poisoning. "When oui
present vaccination law was passed
the authorities labored under misconceptions in regard to vaccination. It was universally believed
that (he pox of the cows was some
thing different from human pox.
But now it has been proven to a
certainty that cowpox, which was
held to be a distinct sickness among

A Baptist church in Kansas includes among its membership a devout family consisting   of   father,
mother, and a precocibus cherub of
six.    The pastor  has   the  usual
weakness for chickens, and so has
the cherub.    In the early part of
the week the pastor was invited to
dine.    The pride of the family had
been properly coached for the event,
and more attention than usual had
been paid to his spelling.    He had
mastered any number of words of
three letters, but it was still safe
for mother and father to spell out
the words of two or more syllables
which   they   did not wish him to
It was: "When you go down
town purchase some c-a-n-d-y,"
from mother; and father was always saying, "Get some b-a-n-a-
n-a-s this morning." The pride of
the household had learned that
whenever you want to use a word
in anyone's presence that you do
not wish him to understand it
ought to be spelled out.
There was chicken for dinner
when the pastor came to dine, and
he showed his appreciation by requesting two helpings. Only one
piece remained, and the cherub in
the family had not been satisfied.
It was the father who said:
"Mr. -—. let me give you another piece of chicken.'"
The pastor, with a show of reluctance, passed his plate, and the
pride of the family addressed his
mother: "Mamma, don't you think
the preacher is a p-i-g?"
All the cheating and cunning in
politics and commerce is due to the
many   deluding devices practiced

and priests of all ages have been
fond of show; the less meritorious
they were themselves the move they
were in need of adornment. The
less truth a creed has the \ more
ceremonial it will adopt, ami the
more an article is advertised the
less is its intrinsic value It the
giant on the show bill is bigger
than the living giant, and if a merchant becomes richer by selling below cost, we are confronted with
another class of imitators of the
priesthood, who sell seats in heaven
for a worldly compensation.—A.
Treuck, in Life and Aim  of Man.
