two cents an ounce.or 82 cents a pound,

the mail taken in is letter mail. As it
is, however, the carrier first takes all
the letter mail, and if it does not make
up the full 250 pounds he fills up with
papers, which, if sent to regular subscribers, only require a cent a pound
postage.	
FACK UPON THE BAB-ROOM FLOOR
[Reproduced by request.]
'Twas a balmy summer evening, and a
goodly crowd was there,
Which   well-nigh  filled  Joe's  barroom
that stood upon the square;
And as songs  and   witty  stories  came
through the open door,
A vagabond  came slowly  in  and stood
upon the floor. :~"~"~
"Where did it come from?" someone said,
"The wind has blown it in,"
"What  does  it  want?"   another cried,
"some whiskey, rum or gin?"
"Here, Toby, sic him, if your stomach 's
equal to the work,
"I wouldn't touch him with a fork, he's
as dirty as a Turk."
This badinage the poor wretch took in
stoical good grace,
In fact, he smiled, as though he'd struck
the proper place.
"Now, boys, I know there's goodly hearts
among so good a crowd,
To be in such good company would make
a deacon proud.
"Give me a drink,   that's what  I  want,

When I had cash to treat the gang this
hand was never slow;
What!   You laugh, as though this pocket
had nevei held a sou—
My, boys, I once was fixed as well as any
one of you.
"There, thanks; that's braced tne nicely;
God bless you; one and all;
Next lime I  pass this good saloon I'll
make another call.
Give you a song?    I  can't do that, * my
singing days are past,
My voice is gone,  my throat worn out,
my lungs are going fast.
"Sav, give me another whiskey, and I'll
'tell you what I'll do;
I'll tell you a funny story, and a fact I'll
promise, too;
That I ever was u decent man, not one of
you would think,
Hut I was, some lour or five years back,
say, give me another drink.
"Fill her uj>, Joe; ! want to put some life
into this frame,
Such little drinks to a bum like me are
miserably tame.
Five lingers, there, that is the score,  and
corking whiskey, too,
Well, boys,  here's luck, and, landlord,
my bcsl regards to you,
"You've treated ine pretty  kindly, Ixiys,
aud I'd like to tell you how
I came lo hi- the dirty  sot you see before
you now.
As Hold vou, once I was a man, with
muscle frame and health.
And but for a blunder, mlghthave made
lutisiderable wealth.
"I was a painter.    Not one who daubed
on paint on wood;
Hut an artist, ami  for my age was rated
pretty good.
I worked"hard al  iny canvass,  and   was
bidding fair to rise,
Till gradually I saw the star of faun- bt-
lore my eye*.
"I painted a i.icture, pcrhutm you've seen,
,   'tis called the Chaw of Fame;
It brought me  fittcen hundred pound-*
and added to my name;
And then I met. a "woman.     Now hen-
comes the funny part
"That's why I took to drink, boys;   why
I never saw you smile;
I thought; that you would be amused, and
laughing all the while.
Why; what's the matter, friend ?  I saw a
tear drop in your eye;
Come, laugh like me, 'tis only babes and
women that should cry.
Now, if you give me another drink, boys,
it will make me glad,
And I'll draw right here  the picture that
drove me mad.
Give me that piece of chalk with which
you mark the baseball score,
You shall see the lovely  Madaline  upon
the barroom floor."
Another drink, and with chalk in hand
the vagabond began
To draw a face that well might buy the
soul of any man,
And as lie added the last wavey lock upon
the shapely head,
With fearful shriek, he   rose,   aud fell
across the picture, dead.
'OT,    AIN'T    IT.
Ohio girls are not so slow. They are,
in fact, decidedly swift, if late reports
are to be relied upon A despatch sent
out under a Chicago date says that a
Church Hugging Society was organized
last week at Belle Centre, Ohio. And
it is raising no end of trouble there and
at other points in the State. It was at
first proposed rather as a joke by some
fun-loving girls connected with the
little, village church, but created so
much excitement that the society was
formally organized, with MiBS B. C.
Bates   as  president  and   Miss   Idelia

under 15 years of age, 15 cents for a hug
of tvo minutes, or 10 cents for a short

Harry Porter Guerrant, in Physical
Culture, says: The country is badly in
need of a reformer. At first thought,
one would naturally say, "We are already driven to desperation with this
era of reforms." We find them on
every corner preaching their doctrines.
We even cross the street rather than
have to bear with their inconsistencies.
Yet, I am bold enough to repeat that
the world yet wants such missionaries
to go in and out among its young men
and women with a doctrine of good
sense Where do we find a living example of temperance? Is it always in
the temperance lecturer? Do we find
the average temperance preacher with
ruddy cheeks and a smile that betokens
a life made glorious by a higher existence? Too often we see such men looking forward to a mountain with uplifted
eyes, forgetting that they arc in momentary danger of tripping over a
mole-hole and even,  in self-confidence,
Sing a song of penitence,
A fellow full of rye,
Four and twenty serpents
Dancing in his eye.
When his eyes were opened,
lie shouted for liis life;
Wasn't he. a pretty chump
To go before his wife?
His hat was in the pallor,
Underneath a chair,
His boots were in the hallway;
His coat was on the chair.
His trousers in the kitchen:
His collar on the shelf,
Mnt he hasn't any notion
Where he ivas" himself.
When the morn was breaking
Home ono heard him call—
His head was in tlm ice box,
Which was the best of all

Speaking of the Mother Lode mine in
California, the San Francisco Mining
and Engineering Review says: "The
Mother Lode is not a single vein, but is
a remarkable linear system or chain of
interrupted and overlapping veini
which traverses some of the northern
counties of California. Toward the
south, veins belonging to this great
system extend down past Benton Mill,
Bear Valley and Mount Bullion to near
the town of Maripoaa. Toward the
north the line of veins running up past
Placerville to the Middle American
river, and perhaps beyond.undoubtedly
belongs to the same system. It is
erroneous to suppose, as some do, that
a continuous drift might be run along
the whole length of thi 'lode' without
losing sight of the vein. Although one
of the veins may be traced for miles,yet
it will finally die out entirely and bo
succeeded by an interval where no
noticeable veins occur; or else its place

will be taken by a second, perhaps
overlapping vein lying some distance
to the east or west of it. In some cases
there may be several approximately
parallel veins a mile or more apart, as
near Angels Camp or Ooulterville. The
usual tendency of the miner or engineer
who wishes to represent tlie Mother
Lode system in diagrammatic form is
to exaggerate, a continuity in itself
sufficiently remarkable and draw imaginary connections and 'branches,'
where there is no evidence for their
existence "

The following interesting notes on
tliis mineral is given by .J. S. Randall,
in the (ioorgetown, Col., Courier;
Of the many mineral species that  go
tu make up this earth of ours, the most
singular and complex  is the mineral
nraninite, or as it is more commonly
called,  pitchblende.    In  occurs  in  a
number of mines in (iilpin county, and
at one time quite a large amount of it
was discovered in tlio.lo Reynolds mine
iu this county.    The mineral is black,
heavy and sometimes has a siibmetallic
or  pitch-like  lustre    It   is  composed
principally of the rare elements uranium, thorium, cerium, laothanium and
yttrium, along with lead, iron, calcium,
nitrogen and some other substances as
yet little understood which give forth
perpetual light.   It is a remarkable, fact
it is the only known mineral containing
nitrogen, but still more remaikuble is
the (act that it contains t bree substance*
called polmiuin, radium aud m-tinum,
which are now astonishing the scientific
world    These  substance*   imrtake  nf

Two weeks ago I attended a temperance lecture. I had hoped to see a man
who was worthy of the cause lie represented, but instead was forced to gaze
upon a little, sour-stomached, peevish
dyspeptic, who spoke as though he
were the chief mourner at a funeral.
Few in his audience paid him any attention, as he ranted on total abstinence
from intemperance, After the lecture
I took the trouble to talk with this poor
creature and found him to be a tobacco
fiend. He could dwell with the lire of
an orator ou whiskey, but he could not
appreciate, tlie fact that his system was
hourly being saturated with the. deadly
nicotine Day by day he was killing
the precious nervous system with his
own intemperance, and expected his
hearers to follow him as some "will-o'-
the-wisp" to ah unknown victory

pulpits today, then let him. or his
readers, investigate

To illustrate: A piece of the Silver
Mountain wagon road has been out
for three months past, aud the
weather has been the best that
could be asked for for road work.
But nothing has been done, and
will not be done until spring opens,
Had tlie road been repaired early
in the fall it could have been done
for very little money, but,left until
spring, the cost will he several
hundred dollars. During the time
this piece of road has been out
freighting to and from the Hartney
Marion and California mines ha*
been seriously interfered with. At
the present time the Hartney and
Marion are both shipping ore, but
the condition of the road make* it
impossible to get down more than
three or four tons a day. it will
take about six weeks to get down
the 100-ton shipment tiie Marion

public moneys as a sort of

many thousands are put here, so

long as a good "bluff" is made on
the roads. And, in this section, at
least, the worst time in the year is
chosen in .which to do the work.
The manner in which money was
thrown away on the Carpenter
creek bridge last year illustrates
even more forcibly the government's lax policy. For $5,000 a
bridge that would last for 20 years
could be built over this treacherous
Btream,but instead of appropriating
this amount and building a suitable
structure, the government contents
itself in building makeshifts that
are washed out with every freshet
and are never safe to travel over
with a load of ore. Last week the
anchor ice in the creek broke away
and carried the approach-bridge

Victoria that all expenditures foi
road work had been Btopped for the

legislature meets and makes further
appropriations. Had the citizens
not turned out and put up a temporary approach to the government
bridge, which, by the way, is now
spanning a small offshoot from the
main creek, travel over the government highway would still be
impossible. For two months past
the creek has been at its lowest
and everything has been most
favorable for bridge-building. But
the government will not build, if
at all, until after March, when tho
creek will be much higher and the
cost of building much greater.

n Christian on $5 a meek
/ "Can a man be a Christian on $5
a week?" is a question asked of J.
Keir Hardie, M. P., editor of the
Glasgow -Labor Leader. In answering it Mr. Hardie confesses
himself in something of a quandary
in attempting to reply, on account
of the varying definitions of' 'Christianity."
If a Christian is one "who takes
no thought for the morrow, and
who does not lay up for himself
treasure upon earth." it is obvious
"that not only can a man be a
dren poorly clad, insufficiently fed;
his employment nine times out of
ten will be precarious and intermittent, arid each day's loss of
work will be so much necessary
food kept from his loved ones. At
his work he will be treated with
less consideration by those in
authority than the machinery,
which it may be he tends. There
will be no human relationship between him and his employer; a
man with $5 a week is simply a
hireling of no account, of whom
Christian on
$5 a
week,  but he i there are thousands willing to take
could not possibly be anything else.
He might not be much of a theologian and could not well be a
church-goer, but a Christian he
must be," says Mr. Hardie. He
adds:
In the early days of Christianity,
•scetism was held to be a logical
outebme of Christian belief. Dives
was sent to hades for apparently
no other reason than that he was
rich. Lazarus went straight to
Abraham's bosom because of his
earthly poverty. James, the episto-
lean, called upon the rich to "weep
and howl" for the miseries ahead
of them.
Christ sent out his disciples with
empty purses, and himself had not
where to lay his head. The Sermon on the Mount is a consistent
and powerful argument against
poverty in every form. The great
teacher understood clearly the difference between life and a mere
struggle for existence. If men desired life they might have it in
abundance, but only on condition
that they abandoned the worship I heart, loses faith in man,  faith in
his place,should he show the slight
est revolt. Not for him the fellowship of the Christian church. That
sacred place is reserved for people
who can wear good clothes, pay
seat rents, and subscribe to the
minister's salary. There are mission halls for $5-a-week people,
where soup, blankets and coal are
to be had in • winter on condition
that a man foregoes his manhood.
For the funds wherewith to build
the hall, and provide the soup and
blankets and coal, will be largely
subscribed by the employer and
landlord who grow rich out of his
misery.
Under such circumstances it is
not difficult to forecast the end.
The man feels himself enveloped in
the meshes of a net from which
there is no escape, A sense of injustice never leaves him. The
present has no joy, the future no
hope. And so, bit by bit, his self-
respect- departs, the careworn face
of his wife and the poor clothing of
his children irritate him; he loses
WON'T   NEKD   ICK    HOUSES   THEN,
Sir Robert Ball, of Cambridge
University, England, lecturing last
week at Columbia University, predicted the advent of a glacial period
in the distant future which will be
in its nature worse than famine,
flood or pestilence. The huge Bheets
of ice will advance from the polar
regions, he said, ploughing through
the earth's surface and benumbing
everything for hundreds of thousands of years. At one time, he
said, the entire Northern hemisphere was covered with ice of great
thickness, and at another period
Greenland supported a "genial and
luxurious vegetation." Professor
Ball spoke of boulders weighing
1,500 tons being carried seven miles
by glaciers,and told of huge mass^
of granite being transported from
England to Ireland by the same
agency., The cause of the ice age
is a configuration of the earth
with the planets Jupiter and Venus
in Pisces. The proximity of the
earth to the sun has but little to do
with an ice age, but the procession
of the equinoxes is instrumental in
the result. We get 63 per cent, of

It will be seen, therefore, that
the man who is most simple in his

communion with nature, and is
farthest removed from the pomps

Christian ideal. Not for him the

they will not enjoy the beatific
vision outside of heaven; (3) that
in common with adults they will
arise and be assembled for judgment on the last day; and (4) that
after the last day there will be but
twb states—namely, a heaven and
hell,—Archbishop of Mellxuirne, in
New Zealand Tablet.
Christ said:   "Suffer little children to come unto ine, for of such
is the kingdom of heaven."  Christ
did not say that the baptized ones
should come unto him,   J would
like to ask the archbishop  what
difference it oan make to the soul
of the child whether it is baptized
or not; what reasons he can have
for Baying that an unbaptissed child
in lost.   I challenge him or any of
his associates  to give a reason.
Why   should   God  damn a child
simply because  it  hnl  not l>een
baptised  by a priest?  If a child
dying in it* infancy cannot enter
into heaven, then I would like to
ask what chances we men with our
deeds have to enter that blessed
state.   Again, what justice would
there Iks in a  God condemning a
child who as yet is not responsible
for its deeds?   Doe* it have the
power  before  it can reason and
speak to ask  to   Ih-   baptized?   If
not, how can it help it if it dies
liefore it is sprinkled with a little
water by a'designing fool?   A rational human being would not «m-
uvutuim ..netny,   nven,   ior that!      1j6H.II

it can be done he must be regenerated and his tribal organization
disrupted. Then there are questions of improved mining processes
and of further exploitation, as of
the Randfontein. which I recommended in 1899.
"After the Rand is worked out
there will be little outside Kimberley worth fighting about. The
only other gold deposits are those
which were worked in Rhodesia in
prehistoric times and are supposed
to be those of King Solomon and
the Queen of Sheba, which yield
about $30,000,000 a year. The
country can never support a large
population, its resource* above
ground being meager. Coal and
iron are scanty and inferior and
copper deposits insignificant.
"Ultimately there must beacon-
federation of the South African
estates, as demanded by the community of their interests. South
Africa will insist on autonomy and
only an implied British suzerainty,
which will be tolerated simply because helpful in affording political
protection and better credit in the
world's money markets."

John Hays Hammond, the eminent mining engineer, in discussing
the South African situation recently, said:
"The South African unpleasantness is an interlude in the Transvaal's mining history, a result of
its mineral wealth and probably a
necessary evolution in its mining
progress for the abolition of the old
abuses.
"The prize of the struggle, the
Wiwatersrand, or White Waters
range—is unique in the world's
inining records, and I do not wonder at the growing enthusiasm in
London at the prospect that it will
soon be recovered. London is renewing its old interest in Kaffirs
and is planning great things in that
line.
"The Rand is the world's richest
storehouse of gold, all in what the
west would call a little patch of
ground 25 miles either side of
Johannesburg. It resembles anything but a mining district, having
the appearance of a grazing country.
The reefs are accessible and rather
easily worked. The deposits are
unique in their unparalled persist-
ance of ore, which is interspersed
in the quartz and sandstone. It is
not of very high quality, yielding
about $10 per tou. There are

"Since its discovery, in 1885, the
Rand has yielded 8400,000,000 in
gold, and just before the war was
yielding 8200,000,000 a year, or
one-third of the world's production
—a rate which some years before,
when the yield was but $35,000,000
a year, I had predicted would come
before the end of the century.

increment in temperature is only 1
degree in 200 feet, so that we can
mine down 10,000 feet. The deposits are not, however, as asserted, practically unlimited. I believe the future life of the Trans-1

"Several years ago,
man who was telling
about cold weather, "my boy came
rushing in from the barn early one
morning and said in great excitement that the cows were all frozen
to the ground. We ran out, of
course,to discover that the dydrant
in the barn had burst in the night,
and that my six fine Jersey cows
and a calf were standing in ice.
"Well, you can imagine that we
had some instantaneous commotion
on our hands. My boy hunted up
some men from the neighboring
stables and we all carried warm
j water and chopped ice with a good
will. One of the men said that if
those were his cows he'd give them
a big dose of whiskey before he
chopped them out of the ice. So

juncture in walked our Episcopal
clergyman, He leaned on 0110 of
the stalls and watched us administer tlie doses of liquor to those unhappy cows.    Then he said:

which it follows that there passes
through the heart every hour 250
pounds of blood. The whole mass
of blood on an average is equal to
twenty-five pounds. Hence it all
passes through the heart ten times
an hour, or once every six minutes.
In spite of the enormous amount
of work it does, which indicates
great strength, its adjustment is
extremely delicate and easily deranged by over-exertion or dissipation. It derives its motor power
from the brain, with which it is
connected by a system of nerves.
It is these nerves which are first
affected, together with the rest of
the nervous system, by dissipation
and the use of tobacco and other
stimulants.
