Ottawa, Jan. 7 -R. J Clute and D.

past few days, have been holding conferences with the Government in regard
to matters affecting the Chinese commission. It is about as good as settled

At the colleries of the John Cbckerill
Company at Seraing, in Belgium, concrete has been extensively used instead
of brickwork for lining1 circular shafts,
lining drifts, air passages, etc. The
concrete used has been made entirely
from blast furnace slags, those from
forge-iron broken to 30 or 50 mm. being
used as ballast, while the mortar is
made of granulated slags, hydraulic
lime in the proportion of 5 to 1 by
yolurne and slag cement. These are
incorporated in a mortar-mill, but no
addition of water is necessary, as the
granulated slag contains enough. Slag
cement is made of about 75 per cent, of
granulated gray iron slags and 25 per
cent, of slacked lime. When the slags
are tolerably uniform in character
chemical analysis of the materials is
not necessary except when the furiiace
charges contain magnesia.which should

All people have peculiarities, some
one thing and some another. School-
mams are but human. They, too, are
peculiar. When the board of school
trustees advertised for a teacher for the
primary department they stated the
term, salary, etc. Six applications
were received from young ladies. One
selection was made and the young ladj
written to,'but the Miss had changed
her mind; another was accepted but she
declined; three more applications were
considered and accepted in turn, but
one after the other of the applicants
excused themselves. The laBt one
accepted the position and the members
of WJfi school board thought they had
things fixed. She was to show up
Monday morning, but at the last
moment sent a telegram stating that
she was called home and could not take
the position. The sixth and last of the
applicants is now being communicated

The director of the United States
mints, George E Roberts, declares that
1901, the first year of the 20th century,
will show the greatest gold production
the world has ever known. It is estimated, from data furnished by him,
that the world's production this year
\Vill reach the enormous total of $865,-
000,000—$1,000,000 a day of the yellow
metal extracted from the gold mines of
the world. Moreover, the year 1901
will show that the United States is
again at the head of all countries as a
producer of gold.
The statement of the mint director
looks rather hopeful. It is sustained,
however, by the following estimates of
the gold output for the countries where
mining for tbe yellow metal is prominent, China being included for the first
time. Here are the tables which the
mint director indorses:

Furry stated that there were fully 800
American girls in Chinatown living
with Chinamen. Three-quarters of them
are from country towns, and the unfortunates generally have not been recruited from the slums. Many of them
come from good families, and Dr. Furry
states that to his knowledge one of
them Is the daughter of a clergyman of
prominence in a nearby city. Many ot
the women are handsome and their
faces indicate refinement and education,
and as most of them are temperate,,
drink cannot be blamed as to the primary cause of their present condition.
There seems to be a fascination about
the place for these girls. They felt
themselves abandoned before they got
there and in Chinatown they seem to
find conditions that enable them to forget the past. Thisis probably because
the Chinamen are very kind to them.
The girls live in ecse in rooms filled with
incense, ornamented with costly draperies, dressed in Chinese silks and
visiting from place to place. In most
cases their parents do not know where
they are, sometimes believing that the
daughters are workiug in the city, and
tbe others not knowing whether they
are alive or dead. The clergymau
whose*daught'ir is in Chinatown does
not know where she is, and Dr. Furry
says that there is u prominent hatter iu
Philadelphia whose daughter is in
Chinatown now. Sometimes the,women

ores of the Slocan. But the cost
of treatment is to be raised. Thus
we have another example brought
home to us of the blessings of the
trust. All men must sooner or
later feel the effects of the tremendous concentration of wealth in the
hands of the few that is going on
all over the world, in the form of
combines or trusts. The manufacturer, the men and companies
of mea.ns, are no longer required to
compete with one another, but by
combining their wealth and industries, can force the people to accept
tlieir terms, whatever they might
be.- a-.
of the Slocan and the Smelter Combine of America we see the trust
demanding a larger slice of the
wealth produced by our mines, and
the owners must submit without
complaint. We should have.Cana-
dian smelters, one says. We have.
They are not, it is true, capable of
handling the whole output from
our mines, but in the business they
have handled thus far they have
been as greedy as the American
concerns. In fact they have demanded the same freight and treatment charges as the smelters at
Omaha, Everett, or anywhere else,
regardless of the fact that the
freight charges cannot be more than
one-third as great as the American
smelters have to pay on the long
There Heems to be a fair way out
of the dilemma, however, and that
is the establishment of ninelters by
the Dominion government. The
question may as well be met. now

hall and the gin palace had begun
to clamor, and which would have
inflicted an indelible stain on the
honor of the country,, The Army
and Navy Gazette, the great military organ, has pronounced against
the policy of farm-burning, citing
Lord Clive, who deterred his soldiers from setting fire to a village
in which some of their comrades
had been slain, saying that it would
only create exasperation. Could it
be supposed that such a man as the
Boer has proved himself to be would
be subdued by making him homeless and desperate? Guerilla warfare is most irritating, and may
excuse outbreaks of passionate violence on the part of those against
whom it is waged. But the way to
avert it was to observe the rules of
civilized warfare and allow the
vanquished, they being beyond all
question regular belligerents, to
treat for terms. Instead of this,
Lord Salisbury proclaimed war to
the knife. His attitude would
have justified the Boers in destroying the mines, from which they
Teryjereditably abstained, or even
in burning Johannesburg as the
Russians burned Moscow."
According to figures prepared by
the Rossland Miner the value of
the output from that camp for last
year was 83,600,000. This would
place that camp in the lead, but
there is a probability that the
amount given is exaggerated, as
there was much ore shipped from
the dumps of the War Eagle and
Le Roi, the returns from which
were low.

of truth:
"If the pulpit is turned into a
lecture platform or a concert hall
and entertainments and amusements are substituted for the public
worship of God, then the pulpit is
degraded to the level of secular
things. The preacher is only another name for the chairman of a
literary club or concert company.

Too much talking and too little

mammon. Most men are honest.
Honesty despises hypocrisy. Therefore most men despise the modernized church. They look to it for
Christianity, and what do they
find ? They look to it for kindness
and love arid good fellowship, and
what do they receive ? They look
to it for honesty of purpose,  for
The man who discovered that
salt is an elixir of life, also has discovered that the common wasps
have a memory. This, however,
is nothing new. We fail to recall
an instance in our boyhood when
the wasp forgot to pay us his compliments when we rubbed up
against him—or her.
In view of the inability of the
school board to get a teacher out of
the five young lady applicants, it
might be that the board was at
fault in some particular. We understand they failed to forward the

On a farm that didn't need no crops—
But—something 'neath my Sunday vest
Told me I loved my mother best.
Ah, mother's gettin' old and gray;
Some dav, why, she'll be laid away
Down hf th' field by th' old mill stream,
Where all the roses love to dream
And when thet happens, like 'ez not,
The old farm^ll jest 'bout go to pot;
We'd lose all hope, ef ma was gone, „
Fer she moBt runs the farm alone.
Up with th' sparrers every morn,
Callin' the chickens to their corn;
She cooks a meal I wouldn't trade
Fer the finest farmhouse ever made;
She cleans th' house an' sets the hen,
An' shoos the pigs back to their pen;
She feeds the cow, an' then she goes
Inter th' house, an' sews, an' sews,

Lincoln used to be fond of telling a
story which he got from Mr.Connant,
a lawyer in a   western town who
desired the nomination for county
judge.   On the morning preceding
the evening on which the county contention was to meet he applied to the
livery stable-keeper in his village
for a horse and buggy in which to
drive to the county town,  16 miles
distant, where the convention was to
be held.   "Give me tiie best and the
fastes*; horse you have, Sam," said
he, "so that I„will have time to go
around and see the boys before1 the
convention comes in."   The liveryman, however, was supporting a rival
candidate, and gave the lawyer a
tect, but whioh broke down entirely
before half the journey was completed, so that when the candidate arrived
the convention had adjourned and his
rival had been nominated.
On his return to the stable late tbe
following afternoon, knowing that It
was useless to resent the trick played
upon him, he said to the owner:
"Look here, Smith, you must be
training this horse for the New York
market. You expect to sell him to
an undertaker tor a hearse horse,
don't you? Well, it's time wasted.
I know from his gait that you have
spent days training him to pull a
hearse, but he'll prove a dead failure.
Why, he's so slow lie couldn't get a
corpse to the cemetery in time for tho
resurrection." — San Francisco Argonaut.
. The greatest French author of the
century, one of the greatest minds of
the world's historv—Victor Hugo—near
the close of his life wrote the following
beautiful thoughts: '
"I feel myself the future life. I am
rising, I know, toward the sky. The
sunshine is over my head, Heaven
lights me with the reflection of unknown
"You say the soul is nothing but the
result of bodily powers; why, then, is
my soul the more luminous when my
bodily powers begin to fail? Winter is
on my head and eternal spring1 in my
"The nearer I approach the end, the
plainer I hear around me the immortal
symphonies of the worlds which invite
me! .'It is marvelous, yet simple. It is
a fairy tale, and it is a history. For
half a century l.haye been writing my
thoughts in-prose, verse, history, philosophy, drama, romance, tradition,
satire, ode, song. I have tried all.
But I feel that I have not said the
thousandth part of what is in me.
When I go down to the grave I can
say, like so many others:'I have finished my day's work,' but I cannot say
'I have finished my life.' My day's
work will begin the next morning. The
tomb is not a blind alley; it iB a thoroughfare. It closed in the twilight to open
with the dawn. I improve every hour
because I love this world as my fatherland. My work is hardly above its
foundation I would be glad to see it
mounting and mounting forever. The
thirst for"the infinite proves infinity."

"That which South Africa has to fear
is the corrupting, corroding, enervating
power of wealth. While we, the people
of South Africa, hold by the old, simple,
brave ideals and manners of life of the
founders of the South African race the
future of South Africa is assured. It is
for the women of South Africa to transmit these ideals to their children. Freedom first, and wealth, ease, luxury
last, if at all. Bathed in blood and
swathed in sorrow as South Africa is
today, the time is yet coming when the
land will be the home of an independent
and strong nation."

When we turn to religion in its
different; phases, we find the same
emphasis upon them all—the emphasis of mass of majority; not that the
church exists for the masses—no one
would claim that—but that, such as
It is, it is a mass church. While the
promise of scripture, as a last resort,
is often heard in it about "two or
three gathered together in God's
name," the church is run on the
working conviction that unless .he
minister and the elders can gather
two or three hundred in God's name,
tion to them, or, if he does, he will
not pay the bills. The church ot our
forefathers, founded on personality, is
exchanged for the church of demo
eracy, founded on crowds; and the
church of the moment is the institutional church, in which the standing-
ofthe clergyman is exchanged for
the standing ol the congregation.
The inevitable result, the crowd
clergyman, is seen on every hand
amongst us—the ageni of an audi-
itice, who, instead of telling an audience what they ought to do, runs
errands for them morning and noon
Mid night. With coddling f'»r majorities and tact for whims, he care-
hilly picks his way. Ho iloo.s lilt-
people as much good as they will let
itlm,tells them as much truth us they
will hear, until ho dies at lam, and
(roes to take his place with Puritan
parsons who mastered majorities
with martyrs who would not live and
be mastered by minorities, and wild
kpostles who managed to make anew
world without the help of majorities
at all.--(J. 8. Lee, In Atlantic.

Dear Sib: Allow me to inform you that the
glasses I trot from you last summer hare been
very satisfactory. I was much pleased with
your method of testing the eyesight, and believe
it to be thoroughly scientific.
Is you are as thorough in testing the eyes of all
your customers as you were In my case, I think
you should give good satisfaction always.
Yours very truly,
