Geo    Aylwin   and   Chas.,, Nicholson
have recentlv been doiiiH' some work ou
ward. At the end of the year 1900 the
company received notice from the
American smelters, who had hitherto
been the purchasers of the mine's product, that they would not renew their
contracts during the present year, and
although the mine was in a satisfactory
condition for 'continuing its operations,
this action temporarily deprived the.
company ol'a market for its product.
Operations, however, continued at the
mine and mill for the first two months
of this year, but on March lst the mill
was stopped, and only development
work carried on until the end of April,
when the. mine was practically shut
down pending the solution of tne smelter question. A new contract for the
sale of the mine's product was entered
into in July on more favorable terms
than those previously existing, and in
the following mouth' the mill restarted
and has continued to work since that
time     Owing to the existing low  price
of silver and lead it is expected that the
profit on thepresent operations will be
small, but it is impossible to say what
the margin of profit will be until the
result is actually demonstrated by a few
mouths' work. In the meantime the
utmost economy in all directions, consistent with efficiency,is being exercised
and it is satisfactory to learn from Mr.
Fowler's report, that he has been able
to carry on mining operations at a cost
considerably reduced as compared with
previous periods. Moreover, now that
the Dominion Government has granted
a bonus for the purpose of encouraging
the establishment of silver-lead refineries in Canada, and as the latest advices point to the early erection of a
local refinery, it is hoped that the company will, in a short time,obtain better
terms for the sale of its product.

Some time ago Louis Miller was badly injured by striking intoa missed hole
at the Payne mine. There was danger
of his losing his eye sight and he was
sent to Spokane for treatment. As a
result one eye has been saved. Last

for 8242 to Miller, $100 of which was
subscribed hy the company aud the
balance by the employes of the mine.

Dr. Selwyn says: "While still in the
saddle and on the trail 8 or 9 feet above
the brook. I noticed a powerful odor of
petroleum: Descending to the edge of
the water and stirring the stones and
gravel in the bed of the stream, considerable quantities of oil at once rose to
the surface and floated away. Crossing
to the right bank it was again seen
coming out of the bank some inches
above the then level of the st renin.
Here, skimming it off the surface of a
shallow pool, a wine bottle full was
soon collected.''
After crossing the. divide of the

John Kendrick Bungs as an illustration of a child's line sense of the
lltnesK of things:
"Hennessey, formerly foreman
of the Herald's composing room,
had a little daughter who said:
" 'Mamma, what are the still's?'
" 'The stars, my child, arc the
Angel Gabriel's lumps. F.vcry
night at twilight the iiugcl Mies out
of the gate of hirudise with n
torch nnd lights all the stars,'
•*()n the following evening a
storm darkened  the heavens and
near   the,   train.    Ho   hailed   Mr.
Gould and said:
•'Say. mister, we have a new
baby at my dugout* and we ain't
got no soap. , My old woman is so
stuck uji over it that she's making
me drive fourteen miles to town to
get some nice, sniellin' soap, an' I
thought maybe you'd help me our*

one of them fancy cars."
Mrs. Gould, who overheard,(lie
request, had a porter give the man
several pieces of soap wrapped in
towels, and several articles of
tinned delicacies. The* man seemed
much surprised at such generosity,
and as he turned to drive homeward he shouted back to Mr.
'■Say, mister, you all must be
some relation to Santa Claus."

The next day they drew up a
petition to which they procured the
signatures of many of the mothers
of families, and then presented it
to the trustees. It called for the
exchange of "Atlas" for another
statue less offensive to thciiynaiden
The trustees thinking it well to
oblige their co n sti tu en ts, again consulted the list in the catalogue.
One of their number read the  des
cription of the "Laocoon" — "a
beautiful group of three classic figures in the toils of a serpent."
The price was the same as that of
"Atlas." An old farmer spoke up
"Ley.hey that one. We'll be
gettin's more fer our money.
We're sendin' back one ligger, an'
will be gettin' three for the same
price, with a big snake tlirun in—

When, upon further investigation, it was found that this group
was also nude, the old farmer advocated writing to the Toledo firm
to send some "picters of folks with
clo'es on,,.to choose from."

art was finally decided upon.

There is an immense amount of
trouble, a* great (ioal of blindness,
an incalculable amount of harm,
coming from the misuse ofthe word
faith. Men say that their religion *,
is a religion of faith, and that they
believe these things to which I object on account of that faith. Faith
tells them that the whale swallowed
Jonah. Faith tells them that the
deeds of cruelty committed by
Moses and David were just. Faith
tells them Elisha raised the dead,
and faith tells them that the Bible
is not contradictory, and that it is
true from Genesis to Revelation—

woman, and so neat and trim in!
her modest costumes that ''Big1
Jim,'* the foreman upstairs, fell in
the habit of calling her "the little
Dresden China doll." When 1 say
that all the lxiys admired Miss An-
Luish, I should make two exceptions. MeElhonny, the police re-

3he fact remained that there was a

Friday in order to no on  the run. 1 -Token hy Mac himself, saying:
the Sphere were in the habit, of
congregating in Jule Sayer's alco
holic dispensary „ on Third street,
where they would pull off a quiet
little game of draw. Saturday was
pay day on the Sphere at that time
and all of the "gang" had their
weekly stipend with thein. On
this particular night the little room
at the, end of Sayer's bar was filled
with a number of the scribes. There
was the smartly-attired Dudley,
and O'Leary,whose right optic was
just beginning to assume its normal
size and color. Fenton, the city
editor, had dropped in for a glass
of rye and to spend a few minutes
with the boys. Ross, the general
assignment man, and Hill, who did
courts, made up the merry party.
MeElhonny did not get through
work until 3, and was therefore
not. present.
They were discussing the probability of having squeezed in a. police
scoop ou their rival, the Press, that
"I know "d—d well that they
haven't got it," said Hill, rubbing
his bald head, excitedly. "I saw
their police man not an hour ago
and he \\las growling a blue streak
because there was nothing doing on
the run. AVhat do you think, Mr.
Fenton?" This to the. chief, who
was lazily rolling a cigarette. Fenton was always rather skeptical
about scoops until the papers  were
"Don't count your chickens before they're hatched, my boy," he
replied. "Still, if it is a scoop,MeElhonny deserves a lot of credit."
Dudley curled his lip disdainfully. He did not like his erstwhile rival, and, as is invariably
tne case, his victory over the police
reporter in the contest for the little
stenographer had not softened his
he-art toward Mac.
"Boys," said Dudley. "I've got
a little scoop myself, and 1 want
you to take a drink on me on the
strength of it.''
They all glanced at him in surprise. Dudley was never known
to have brought in an exclusive
piece of news since he was in the
office; his long suit was in writing
stereotyped stuff about what Corbett
would havo done to Fitzsiminoiis if
he hadn't been licked, etc. And
to make it more strange, Dudley
was never known, to buy a drink
except for himself. Jule took the
orders and the drinks were soon
"Now," asked Ross, "what'sthe
'Tin going to get married tomorrow," replied Dudley, enjoying
the sensation created by his remark.
"Tomorrow!" exclaimed the
boys, "why that's pretty quick
Dudley smiled complacently and
accepted   tho   rather half-hearted
"How are you, boys?
"Mr. Fenton, I gave Roskins
that suicide story; I guess we've
got the Press scooped all right."
The boys heaved a sigh of relief,
while Dudley sat down a little flustered. Hill, who always acted as
banker in the game because he
never left the table until everyone
else was through, arranged the
stacks of red, white and blue chips,
and the game was soon in progress.
An old Mississippi river gambler
once said that "poker chips do
travel." That night they all traveled in MeElhonny's direction.
He won pot after pot with" astonishing regularity, until Fenton and
Ross rose from the table, "cleaned
out." Dudley played in the worst
of luck. Time after time bis three
aces and flushes and straights were
topped by the imperturbable MeElhonny, who seemed to enjoy a
grim satisfaction in separating the
sporting editor from his money.
Finally Dudley's salary had been
absorbed, and he pushed back his
chair in disgust. He half arose,
hesitated, and then seated himself
"I'm no piker," said he, "give
me some more chips." He pulled
from his pocket-book a certified
check for §500. "Just,let me have
§20 on thisi and I'll get it cashed
in the morning."
The boys looked askance at each
other, as Hill pocketed the che^k
and gave Dudley a receipt for $480.
By this time MeElhonny had in
front of him almost all the money
on the table, which, taking into
consideration the fact -that the
stacks of chips represented a half
dozen weekly salaries, was not an
inconsiderable amount in the eyes
of a. newspaper man.
As the cards were being dealt
out for the next hand, Dudley
-picked up in succession the nine,
ten, jack, queen and king of diamonds—a straight Hush,only beaten
by one hand in the deck. Dudley's

and his wish was evidently granted,
for 1 Till raised tlie opener 82, which
was "straddled'1 by the calm MeElhonny, who raised the lirst raise
$n. The rest of the players dropped out and settled themselves in
interested anticipation of a warm
time. Dudley had much difficulty
in restraining the look of supreme
satisfaction that passed over liis
countenance. He studied his curds
intently for several moments in
order to lead his opponents to suppose that he was not sure of the
strength of his hand, then raised
both of them $10. Hill only saw
the raise, hut, to the surprise of
all, MeElhonny, without giving his
cards another inspection, threw in
$20, thereby again doubling Dud-
loyvs raise. Dudley, confident in
his almost certain victory, asked
for more chips from Hill on his
check, and raised back 820.
"That beats me," grunted Hill,
disgustedly, as he laid down his
cards. "I'm beginning to look like
a selling platter i;i this race."
MeElhonny said nothing, but
again raised back an equal amount,
which was re-raised by Dudley.
"I guess it looks as if there
won't any of you draw cards until
you're both   broke,"   commented
Without that coin Dudley won't

McElhonny's hand shook violently as he unclasped the watch. He
drew a long breath and slowly laid
his cards face down on the table.
1 'That's good,"- he muttered,  "T
can't ^ee your last raise."
. A murmur of astonishment Idled
the room as  Dudley  triumphantly
drew in the mass of chips and silver.
"You wouldn't have stood deuce
high, anyway, old boy," he said,
flippantly. "I had a king high
straight flush."
MeElhonny did not answer, He
arose and started for the door. Hill,
anxious to see on what the police
reporter had wagered so high,reached over and spread out Mac's hand
to the gaze of the. crowd.
"Good God," he cried, as he saw
the cards.    ' 'Mac, youJiad„a_i:Qyal

a remedy for the evil, and the secretary
of the Church of England Emigration
Society feels 'that little more can be
done at home than has been done,' and
suggests that immigration societies
should be formed in Canada. Another
paper, after quoting words used by the
Duke, of Cornwall, thinks that Canada
should he made more widely known.
"The Colonist sums up thus: 'It
would be a patriotic work to endeavor
to secure for Canada ae nearly all the
British emigrants as possible.'
"Now, let us have a little plain lalk.
Like, a good many of my neighbors,who
are neither politicians nor hired newspaper men, 1 am confoundly sick of

hopeful was unduly impressed with
the idea of moving from Tacoma
and as the evening lengthened appeared more and more abstracted.
His mother roused him from his
reveries for his evenings prayers
and the lad responded with an air
of resignation. As he finished liis
address to the Throne the boy hesitated and then sorrowfully added:
"Good bye. God. We are going
to Seattle tomorrow, and I suppose
I won't see you any more.'"
