Mackenzie & Mann have stated that
it is their intention to beat all records

E. P. Bremner and E Williams, Dominion Labor Commissioners, last week
took a hand In the trouble at Rossland,
arising from the importation of a lot of
alien railroad graders to work there,
by deporting the whole bunch and
warning the contractor not to repeat
tbe offense.
J. C. Drewry, manager of the Canadian Gold Fields Syndicate, is reported
by the Nelson Miner to have said that
tbe properties owned by his company
Ih the Slocan could ship 60,000 tons of
ore annually, if the ore market were In
better condition, Tbe company should
build Its own smelter.
Two years ago the output from tho
collieries at Pernio, was 08,000 tons,
Last year it reached 280,000. This year
It will probably be nearer 600,000, and
next year, if the fields are opened up
by the Great Northern railway, it would
not be surprising to see tbe annual out*
run close to the 800,000-ton mark,
The peculiar feature of the "trouble"
that hat arisen In the Slocan over the
smelter charges, etc., is that the only
properties that are closing down are
those owned and operated by English
companies. This in the Englishman's
way of getting what he wants. It was
just so in the labor trouble a year ago.
A tubtidy amounting to 20 per cent,

Tbe proposition for the Dominion
Government to appoint a Commission
to investigate the whole position of
Canadian mining ought to be carried
out at once. If the right men are appointed there is a chance of them preparing a report that will show the mineral resources of the Dominion in a light
that will surprise the world. Canadians
themselves little realize the magnitude
of the possibilities of Canadian mining.
L, A. Thurston, of Slocan City, acting
for outside parties, last week took an
option on the Boxer group of five claims,
adjoining the Smuggler and Molly Gibson, at the head of Ten Mile, the price
named being $40,000, the bond covering
a period of 18 months. First payment,
6 per cent., will be made in August.
The owners of the group are J. H.
Wereloy, W. S. Thompj8on,~W.XTJW

and Billy Crawford, of Creston.
Rev. R. Whittlngtou, M. A.'B. Sc,

a tew hours. A meeting wiil be held
the same evening in Slocan, and on
Friday evening at Silverton. Mr,
Whlttlngton is speaking in the interest
of the missionary society of tho Methodist church.

and common schools, 246, with 246
teachers. The total cost of education
for the year was $889,867.89, a decrease
of $27,583.25 from the total cost of the
preceding year. The cost of education
in the four ridings of West Kootenay
was $40,502. It is interesting to note,
as showing the rapid development of
the mining districts, thaLfive years ago
there were employed in tne Kootenay
country 18 teachers, at a total cost of
$9,750, while for the year just ended
there were employed in the same district 70 teachers, at a cost of $50,821.
In this connection it is also worthy pf
note that, when the New Denver school
was inspected on Feb. 28, 1900, there
were 28 pupils present. It was then a
common school and was reported upon
iu this manner: "School improved in
the character of work shown; arithmetic
considerably advanced; writing careless; more neatness of work required."
Today it is a graded school; the attendance is 60, and the educational facilities as good as can be found anywhere.
The total amount of ore shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan City mining
divisions for the year 1900 was, approximately, 85,000 tons. Since January 1

Last week the ore shipments agsin
went over the 500 tons mark Tho
figures obtainable show that 608 tons
wont out, but this does not include the
shipments from Three Forks. These
aro obtainable only monthly. The
Payne is shipping less than a third of
its usual output, the Whitewater and
Bosun are not shipping, and some other
properties around Sandon , are doing
nothing but development work.

>J. C. Drewery Takes a Dark Yiew of- the Smelter1;
Situation—Mineral Production Last Year.
The outlook in connection with the
smelter proposition does not improve as
the days go by.- There seems to be no
doubt that this question is being made
the scape-goat for many others that the
mine owners feel are oppressive to them.
But whether this is the case or not it
matters little. The fact that many of
the properties are refusing to ship ore
and are reducing their forces, if not
closing doWn altogether, is sufficient
cause for alarm and ought to induce the
Government to promptly investigate
the complaints of the mine owners, and
render such aid as is possible looking
to. the advancement of the mining industry.
J.C. Drewery, manager of the Canadian Gold Fields Syndicate/was interviewed by the Nelson Miner a few days
ago. Mr. Drewry was pessimistic in
his views of the general situation in the
Slocan, but his complaints are shared
An effort will be made In the legislature against granting a subsidy to any
railway, but instead, to set apsrt 100,-
000,000 acres of land in the northern
part of the Island and the mainland,
the land to be sold at a dollar an acre,
carrying all rights for timber, mineral
and coal, the proceeds to be used In
building railways on the north end of
islsndand the mainland. If such a
policy were adopted, the province would
own the railways and get a fair income
by leasing them for operation, at the
same time not increasing tht debt of
Province a dollar.

terested in the camp, and cannot be
ignored by the government. He said:
"I have just sent sixteen men down
the hill at the Sunset, retaining only
five men for development work. My
company will not mine ore any further
until the conditions are so altered that
we can operate at a profit. Our mines
should produce 50,000 tons of ore an*
nually and under favorable conditions
this output should net a million dollars.
As things are, we could work our mines
and they would not yield a profit of a
cent. Under these circumstances, we
absolutely refuse to go ahead with ac*
tlve operations; and unless conditions
Improve our next step will be to close
down the properties as tight as a dram
and not do another hands turn until
tbe situation changes.
"Tho government has always pursued
a policy opposed to the development of
the country's mineral resources and
their proposal to cinch the mlue owners
still further has disgusted ereryone in*
terested in the industry. I am prepared
to discontinue operations altogether;
and if others follow my example, as
seems Inevitable, tbe situation will
work out its own solution, uuless the
mining Industry be allowed to become
a matter of the oast.
"After arriving in Rosslsnd, I propose to visit Southern California and to
remain there until I have enjoyed a
good holiday. Mining interests tn the
Kootenays will uot worry mo, for we
do not propose to go ahead with the
production of ore as long as existing
conditions prevail.
"The solution of tbe problem Is to
give us the smelter facilities necessary
to handle the growing ore production
•nd a refinety to treat the output of
these smelters The provincial govern
ment has had a proposition placed be
fore it by Mr. Green, M.I.A., but have
not heard of the outcome. Other sub*
sidlsry helps to the industry would be
• fair wage and a more reasonable
schedule of transportation charges.*'

5 per cent, decrease in the production
of placer gold, the figures being $1,278,-
724 against 11,844,900 for 1898-9. The
production of coal and coke was $1,018,-
238 higher than that of the previous
year, .the production being valued at
$5,066,889. The total tons of ore mined
was 554,796 against 287,848 of the year
previous, an increase in tonnage of 93
per cent. In 1898-9 Jhere were 43 mines
shipping, in 1899-1900 60. Two thousand four hundred and twenty-six men
were employed under ground, and 1,805
above ground, a total of 8,781. The
total amount of wages paid to this army
of mine workers would reach about
18,500,000 for the year.
David B. Bogle, writing in the Engineering Magazine, says: It is beyond
the limit of any merely human descrip-
ttve powers to do justice to tha timber
wealth of the Pacific Coast. "It has"
been calculated with reference to British Columbia alone that at the present
rate of consumption it would take 700
years to exhaust the more available
supplies of timber; and as, under the
husbandry of nature, forests will renew
themselves in less time than 700 years,
the calculation is merely a way of Indl.
eating that the timber resources of the
Pacific Coast are practically inexhaustible. It is not too much to say, then,
that for all trade and commerce into
which wood and the products of wood
enter,and for all manufactures in which
wood and tbe products of wood are consumed, the Pacific Coast possesses resources incalculably greater than any
other portion of the globe, civilised or
uncivilised. As regards the products
of the mine, the territory under consideration already produces no inconsiderable proportion of the world's annual
supply of gold, stiver, copper and lead.
(t is besides Infinitely rich in iron, coal
and petroleum, of which its stores are
hardly yet comprehended, much lens
utilised. And what is known of all its
mineral resources is as nothing In comparison with what is not known.

FELLOW PILGRIMS: Thk Lidoe is looated at New Denver, B. C. and oan be traced to many parts of the earth. It oomes to the front
every Tharsday and has never been raided by the sheriff, snowslided by cheap silver, or subdued by the fear of man. It works for the trail
Mater as well as the bay-windoWed and champagne-flavored capitalist. It aims to be on the right Bide of everything and believes that hell
should lie administered to the wioked in large doses. It has stood the test of time, and an ever-increasing naystreak is proof that it is
better to tell the truth, even if the heavens do occasionally hit our smokestack. A chute of lob work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the financier. Come in and see us, but do not pat the bull dog on the cranium, or ohase the black cow from our water
barrel: one is savage and the other a victim of thirst. One of the noblest works of creation is the man who always pays the printer; he is
sure of a bunk in paradise, with thornless roses for a pillow by night, and nothing but gold to look at by day. ,

•nr   ..__      The Archbishop
r layer      of Canterbury has
anH Kin ff C prescribed a pray-
CIMU..r\lllgd er to be said by
the people, upon the accession of
King Edward to the throne that is
a triumph of senile adulation. It
bids us pray for grace to obey our
King cheerfully and willingly for
conscience sake, that neither our
sinful passions nor our private interests may disappoint his care for
the public good, and that we may
never be wanting in dutiful submission to his authority. This
bishop would fain have the people
kneel before Edward and lick the
dust off his boots. He being a
king in the church business, and
accustomed to all the pomp and
ceremony that surrounds his position, no doubt imagines that it is
the proper thing for the human
race to humble themselves before
royalty. Without religious slavery
and superstition it would be impossible for such a man to grow fat
on the fears of the human race,and
dictate a prayer that is an insult to
all free people. The obedience of
the people to his church must have
pan until it is curdled with the desire to have all men on their knees
before him or the state. Instead
of framing prayers for the people,
one should be made for the King
in which he could call upon all the
deities to keep harmony between
him and the masses. The King of
England is only a man, although,
no doubt, the Archbishop with the
fattest clerical salary on earth,
would like to have us believe that
he is a fat god who desires and demands the adulation of his subjects. The bishop may have studied the old testament from sump to
grass-roots, but his ideas do not
belong to this age. The English
nation has a King because we
delight in royalty, We pay for
the luxury, and should be allowed
to enjoy it without having to waste
our ozone upon useless and servile
prayers. ^^^^^^^^

A short time ago we noticed an ad

wanted to correspond with a manly
man with a view to matrimony.
She had 128,000 in cash besides an
income. Such a tempting offer excited our curiosity and we wrote to
the young damsel who was evidently in much distress for the lack of
a man. We asked her what she
wanted with a husband when she
had 128,000, and wished her luck

who live properly need have no
fear of smallpox or any other disease. Doctors will not tell you
this because it is their business to
make money out of sick people.
They cannot make it out of those
in good health. Fear has much to
do with catching disease. Be fearless, live right, and death and sickness will shun you as the delinquent subscriber does a newspaper
office. During the past year it is
safe to say that vaccination has
caused more deaths than smallpox.
Still health officers will force the
obnoxious practice upon a community, falsely thinking that they

outrage upon the rights of man.

has been raised agraliibt the granting of tbe Hill
charter and encouraging a competing line Is the
danger of a coal famine at the mines and smelters. No one is foolish enough to Imagine or
suggest that an unconditional surrender should
be made. But, as one of the Vancouver papers
rightly suggested, before this can be raised as a
valid objection it has first lo be ascertained
whether the supposed shortage is due to the inability pf the mines to supply the demand or on
account of thepreaent transportation facilities
being inadequate 'This Is by no means clear,

This book is all that's left me now 1
Tears will unbidden start—
With faltering lips and throbbing brow
I press it to my heart.
For many generations past,
Here is pur family tree;
My mother's hand this bible clasped,
She, dying, gave it me.
Ah! well do I remember those
Whose names these records bear;
Who round the hearth-stone used to close
After the evening prayer,
And speak of what these pages said,
In tones toy heart would thrill!
. Though they are with the silent dead,
Here are they living still.
My father read this holy book
To brothers, sisters dear;
How calm was my poor mother's look
Who leaned God1, word to hear!
Her angel face—1 see it yet!
What vivid memories come!
Again that little group is met
Within the halls of home!
Thou truest friend man ever knew,
Thy constancy I've tried;
Whore all were false I found thee true,
My counsellor and guide.
The mines of earth no treasure give
Thou could this volume buy;
In teaching me the way to live,
It taught me how to die.
—Geo, Pope Morris.
The food question is one of the momentous questions of the day. Some
•eem inclined to discard meat entirely
as improper food; others declare it to
"be the source of human strength.energy
and vitality. Eminent scientists and
physiologists claim that with proper
Foods, and all other things being equal:
1." The skin may last 900 years.
2. The bones mav endure 4,000 years.
8. The heart may endure 800 years.
4. The liver, 400 years.
5  The stomach, nearly 500 years.
6. The kidneys, 200 years or more.
7. The lungs, 1,500 years.
Shelly says: "With a natural system
of diet^oldVge would be our last and
only malady; the term of our existence
would be protracted, we should enjoy
life, and no longer preclude others from
the enjoyment of it; all sensational delights would be infinitely more exquisite
and oerfect; the very sense of Deing
would be a continual pleasure, such as
we feel in some few and favored moments of our youth.   By all that is
sacred in our hopes for the human race,
I conjure these who love happiness and
youth to give a fair test to the vegetable
system."   "Tell me what you eat, and
I will tell you what you are," says another dietic reformer.    Prof.  L.   H.
Anderson,   the   eminent  scientist,  of
Chicago, says:  "Man is not naturally a
carnivora.^"   The structure of his teeth
would seem to indicate this.   He says
further: "One of the best foundations
"you can gtvwo^Fchiidren"ior*a-iife-Tori
usefulness and happiness is a healthy1
body    Therefore, as you value such a
boon foryour child, see that in youth
he does not lose it by indulgence in
candy, pickles, cake and pastry.   No
person is safe in selecting his diet by
tl\e dictates of his tastes alone until he
is Bure hie tastes have not been perverted and corrupted by the unnatural
habits of years."
Nature supplies us with four complete foods—milk, eegs, wheat and corn
—which contain in the proper proportions all the necessary elements for tho
sustenance of our bodies. As these are
the only complete foods, it is necessary
in their absen.o to have mixed foods,
and it is in the mixing that mistakes
occur, becuuso the fat-forming, muscle-
forming foodrt are taken in the wrong
proportions—some in excess, others the
reverso. Left to his own taste.primltive
man invariably selected the best food.
This instinct, however, Is defective in
the present day. For children, foods
rich in bone-forming substances aro
necessary. It is doubtful If any of Nature's laws are more disregarded than
■ those regarding the food we oat. It is
said that man is built out of the food he
eatK,and the body can be no better than
the material that enters into its con-
it ruction. Exercise is a great thing for
building up the body, but the highest
development cannot be obtained if the
wrong kind of food is eafti. Strong,
courageous and well-formed men and
women were dovelopod during the early
history of the world,when natural foods
were eaten, while today the reverse ii
the case. In a truly natural state, roan
should be strong, energetic and vigor*
oui, both mentally and physically; but
he cannot be in this condition if no persists io eating unnatural foods, as tho
eating ot such food makes one unnatural, morbid, lll-tcmpmd And out
of sorts, as tbe saying Is.
The excessive use of meat is most
injurious, especially to people of sedentary habits. Indeed, many consider tt
as altogether unfit for food. Pork
should never be eaten under any circumstances The hog is probably the
most unhealthy animal txoept man. He
is generally shut up In a pen. and not
allowed to exercisei srallows in filth; is
fed on reftiM matter until he will eat
any or everything: and yet people eat
the flesh of this animal day after da"
and wonder whv they do not feel wel
or why their blood u always impure.
The writer Is of the opinion that vege-
urlsnUm Is the coming diet.
By vegetarianism he does not mean
tbe use of vegetables to the exclusion
of every other food. It really means
the entire disuse of meat in every form,
It will be some time, though,before the

all the so-called good things in the way
of foods, made to satisfy the abnormal
appetite.   Because of unnatural foods
the hair becomes permanently grey or
falls out; tbe eyes become dimmed and
give out; the teeth decay early, and the
finger  nails become weak and ugly.
The food that best nourishes the nerves,
supplies the brain, muscles.bones.teeth,
nails and blood is the most natural food.
The writer mentioned whole wheat
and corn as containing all the constituents necessary to support life properly.
The wheat berry is made up ot several
layers, one  of which contains phosphates, devoted to teeth and bone building; another, nitrbgeneous matter .which
enters into the muscles and every tissue
in the body; another, carbonaceous, or
starchy matter, which supplies the heat
and energy of the body.   In the centre
of the kernel is the germ containing the
vital principle, which supplies vitality
and nerve force and feeds the brain.
Doubtless the process in bolting, which
is necessary for making white flour, all
of the above elements are removed except the starchy matter, which, as we
have 8aid,8upplies only heat and energy,
Bread is called the staff of life, but the
term is erroneous when applied to white
bread.   But why is it, you ask, that the
best parts are thus removed?   It is because when they are retained the flour
produced is not white, but it is of a
grey-brown color, and most people wish
to have their flour white in colornmerely
because it is beautiful to the eye., Com
bread, graham bread, and the foods
known   as   wheatena,   whole   wheat
Sluten, universal food, Entona,, Ralston
iealth Club Breakfast Food, Vitos,
shredded biscuits, grape-nuts, etc., all
contain the necessary elements in the
correct proportions to sustain life, ade
quately nourishing the brain and nerve
fibres, enabling one to meet our present
complex form of civilization.   In the
above-mentioned foods the entire berry
is retained, except the outer covering,
which nature has placed thereon for no
other reason known to science except
to preserve the inner and valuable properties until it shall be desired for the,
use of man.   Oatmeal, once thought to
be an ideal food, has lately been found
to be too strong and rank for most
human stomachs.   Most people eat too
much  sugar with their food    As all
starchy foods are converted into sugar
in the stomach, only a very moderate
amount should be eaten    Among foods
considered medicinal may be enumerated spinach  and dandelion, both of
which nave a direct effect upon kidney
troubles, and the former is useful to
those suffering from gravel. Asparagus
induces    increased   perspiration   and
purifies the blood.   Celery is invaluable
as a food to those suffering from any
form of rheumatism, neuralgia, disease
of tho nerves and  nervous dyspepia.
Tomatoes contain  vegetable  calomel
and stimulate the   secretions of the
liver, thus forming a sovereign remedy
for dyspepsia and indigestion.   Lettuce
and cucumbers cool the system, and the
former is good for insomnia.   Beans
Jiourish.an_^trenethejiJtMjystem. All
of the onion tribe promote digestion by
stimulating the circulation, thus increasing the flow of saliva and gastric
juiceSjbesides making the brain exceedingly clear and active. Onions are
almost the best nervine known. No
medicine is so useful in cases of nervous
prostration, and there is nothing that
will so quickly tone up a worn-out system. They are useful in all cases of
coughs, colds and influenza; in consumption, scurvy, hydrophobia, gravel
and kindred diseases. Whit, onions
are said to overcome insomnia, while
red ones are an excellent diuretic.
Eaten every day, they soon have a
whitening effect upon Ihe complexion.
Cranberries are good in cases of
malaria and erysipelas. Blackberries
form a good tonic and are useful in all
cases of diarrhoea. Fresh radishes and
yellow turnips are good for nervous
disorders, gravel and scurvy; carrots
for asthma; water-melon for epilepsy
and yellow fever; water cress for scurvy;
lemons for feverish thirst in sickness,
biliousness, low fevers, rheumatism,
colds, coughs and liver complaints; peanuts for indigestion, if not from overeating, the usual cause of this trouble.
They are especially recommended for
diabotis They are made into a wholesome and nutritive soup, are eaten as a
relish, simply baked, or are browned
and used in place of coffee. Honey is
wholesome, strengthening, healing aud
nourishing. Eggs contain a large
amount of nutriment in a compact,
quickly-available form. Beaton up
raw, with sugar, they are used to clear
end strengthen the voice. White
lemon-juice and sugar, the beaten whlie
of egg is used to relieve hoarseness.
Figs are aperient and wholesome, and

those suffering with cancer. Pie-plant

If the above foods are mote used for
the diseases mentioned, instead of
quack nostrums  and   strong  drugs,
humanity would be far better off than
they are. at present. Dyspepsia is
called the national disease of America,
and this is because Americans, as a
rule, eat too much in too hastv manner
and do not allow sufficient saliva to mix
with what they eat, besides eating any
and everything between meals and just
before retiring. The stomach is probably the most abused organ in the
body, between eating wrong foods and
a wrong manner of eating, together
with the use of powerful drugs and
medicines of ail sorts.° The adulteration
of foods is the source of many of the
ailments of today. Ordinary butter is
often impure add, therefore, unfit for
food. A good substitute for it is nut-
butter, which is pure, rich and delicious.
Preserves are not generally healthful;
though fresh, ripe fruits, taken with
vegetables and whole wheat in any
form, are the best foods iu existence.—

that trades unions have existed, in
China from time immemorial. According to labor authorities of that country,
all tradesmen belong to the guild of
their own trade, which exists mainly to
prevent under-selling. Only in certain
districts is there an effort made to control rates of wages, and nowhere to
limit hours of labor. It i. these leagues
which ordain that shops retailing tbe
same class of goods must all be concentrated in one district, an arrangement
which always seems so ridiculous to
foreigners, Thus, ih a native town,
one street will be entirely inhabited by
jewelers, another by silk merchants,
and so on. It is convenient for customers, though the plan is not intended
for hie convenience, but merely to simplify the system of spying. There is
always a minimum price iixed by the
league for every article on the market,
and even the smartest foreign bargain-
driver will find it well-nigh impossible
to beat the vendor down. The method
by which the labor leagues enforce
their authority are unique. If a man is
found underselling, or otherwise infringing the rules by which he is bound
a hint is quietly dropped to the local
head of the Beggars Union, and that
worthy details a specially numerous and
loathsome body of mendicants—lepers
if available—to pay assiduous attention
to the offender's establishment. If this
penalty fail—a possibility which seems
inconceivable to any white person who
has ever come in contact with the fraternity— various means are taken to
trip up the recalcitrant member over
some trifling poliee regulation. Having succeeded in this object, the union
authorities quietly notify the municipal
elders in whose hands is centered the
administration of local justice that disciplinary measures are necessmry, and
thej' inflict punishment accordingly.
The various unions keep the roads of
their own districts, and collectively
maintain the town police and the school.

cided to drive several miles into the
country to see a farmer who was considered a political power in his locality.   On reaching his place we found
he was away from home and would
not return  for several  da\ s.   We
were obliged to remain all night, as
it was too late to drive back to town.
The farmer's wife dee-ired to show us
to bed, in the spare room, but some
thing seemed to bother Brown, and he
hesitated.   Finally he said:   'It you
will give us a couple of qailts we will
sleep in the haymow.   Your husband
is away and it  might start some
scandal to have a man who is running  for Congress to sleep in the
house.'    The lady   protested,   bat
Brown was firm and we slept in the
haymow.   Next morning, just as we
were coming oat of our sleeping
quarters, the farmer's wife was letting the cows out of the yard.   She
then went to a little shed,  near the
barn, opened the door and hit a big
gentleman cow  who  was sleeping
therein with a club, saying: "Get up,
you good-for-nothing brute, and go
with the cows.   You're not running
for Congress,'"

Aluminum is, at the present price,
the cheapest metal on the market,
with the exception ot iron,  zinc and
lead, says the, Electrical  Review,
London.   The metal is now extensively used in place of copper, brass,
tin, and in some oases even iron, especially where the reduction of dead
weight is a question ot great importance.   Aluminum is also beginning
to be very largely used in connection
with electricity, as electrical  conductors on this metal,giving the same
conductance, as copper, weigh only
half as much, and cost less.   It is
impossible to foresee the ultimate extent of the use to which this metal
can be put, but the progress made in
aluminum during late years justifies
the   most   sanguine   expectations.
Twenty years ago the total output in
the world did not exceed four or Ave
tons, and its price was about $30,000

way a farmer's wife got ahead of a
candidate for congress, last fall, is
ifcold by the editor of the Wabasha
(Minn.) Herald who ran as Democratic candidate for the legislature at
the same time that Brown ran for
congress. The story was first published In the Rochester (Minn.) Daily
Bulletin, and reads as follows:
"As everybody knows, we did

campaign just closed. One night,

When Mrs. Carrio Nation
Desires some recreation,
Or lively occupation,
With due deliberation,
And {rrim determination,
She leaves her habitation   «
And makes a demonstration
Against intoxication,,
She scorns expostulation,
-   Ignores all explanation,
Puts axe in operation
At every liquor station
That comes in observation,
And there's no hesitation
Until the devastation
Has reached its termination.
There's sudden agitation,
There's widespread consternation,
There's fiery indignation
O'er ''booze" in percolation*
But Mrs. Carrie Nation
Displays no trepidation;
In fact, her conversation
Is full of exultation.
With sorrow and vexation,
And sad-eyed contemplation
Of work of ruination
The man whose occupation
Has angered Mrs. Nation
Makes heated declaration
That he'll start litigation
And get remuneration.
No sign of perturbation
Is shown by Mrs. Nation,
For to her habitation
She goes in jubilation,
And vows that ruination
Will have continuation
Till Kansas legislation „
Has stopped intoxication.
—Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph.
Hat Portage, Ont—"Goldbug Jimmy" Dunn is going abroad to sell a
mine. Jimmy is confident that if
any such prospector as Hamlin Garland tells about in the Century Magazine can sell mines, he can. The
lads here and at Fort .Francisl .have
fixed Mm out in a clerical suit of
clothes and given him a clerical air,
«s Rat Portage understands such
things, and have arranged a seductive mining deal that Jimmy trill
T-vork on the London capitalist, who is
supposed around here to be an easy
-mark, a dead one, as it were. There
Is no getting the Portagites out of the
Idea that the Londoner is soft when
it comes to buying mines; any argument you may make will be answered
by a thrust of the thumb in tho direction of some of the shining examples
the simple query, "It he isn't easy,
why did such things separate him
from his money?" And the arjfu
ment u unanswerable.
Jimmy has the same idea. He
says: 'Tve got something better than
any of the Lake ofthe Woods mines
then Uropens has got yet, and I'm
prepared to give it to 'em straight
and sell it cheap. I've got the finest
layout in speciments and nugget that
ever came offen the Portage and I
know Just how to handle 'em. Oh, I
tint been a layin' 'round this town
for all these years and a takln' lessons
of all these here prospecting fellers
and mining sharps without learning
some things. Tou bet I'm all right
and don't need no kindergarten lessons."
Jimmy used to be a peripatetie
vendor of "hots" on the streets of
Duluth, which is probably where be
picked up this sort ol language; he is
a proper Dublin gossoon and there
are not ten men in the Portage who
knew he ever had any other name.
He has had ambitions for years to
sell mining locations, and has succeeded, so that his London experience
will not bo bis flrat, by any means.
Tears ago, one winter, there was a
gathering of mining and newspaper
men from all over Canada and Jimmy
wu aa usual on the outskirts of the
crowd. During a lull In the talk, he
wedged In with: "My Man I tou take
mine, she's a bird, tree gold showing
on the surface, I wouldn't tell her for
a million; no, air, not for ft million
•111 give yon five, Jimmy," thouted
a Montreal newspaper man.
In two jumps, Jimmy was aerots
the room and had the other by tbe
sleeve. "She. yourn, gimme the
five," Mid be, and the banter of the
crowd forced the other to make his
offer good That waa one mine
Jimmy sold.
Not rery long ago a prominent New
Yorker, a Hebrew dealer in black
atatnofro* was at tne t'ortage. AU
ilia prtMpeeiorii in town were alter
him. Jimmy was coached by bit
friends to try his lack.   Said thevi
"He'sa little slow andcarerol, Jimmy,
i..... •#>,..••     i    >
ti'*. i.. j)-*!*.*   >..r»s*;,     vtt   >i*L.i9itMWi.   \\hb
will land him. Don't take 'No' for
an answer, If he says It, It only mean*
that he*H thinking it over and yon
must work harder than ever." And
the advice was followed. If the New
Yorker happens to read this he will
probably know for the tot time why
he waa shadowed for a week by the
little prr»>}<ectc»r, and why Jimmy
slept on hit dr«r mat o. nights till he
pramiaar! to take the land.
•1 aold It trt htm," my* Jimmy
"bat I didn't get any money. He
worked off three suits ot clothes and
two overcoats on me, and it was summer time, too."
Another of Jimmy's numerous deals
waa not so successful, and came near
.being, a tragedy. He had represented great things of a property a long
ways off the traveled route, on a long
canoe trip. A mining expert froni
the east went with him to see it.
After two days of hard paddling they
reached the spot. They stepped
ashore and the expert lobked around.
* Is this the place you were talking
of?" he asked. "It is," says Jimmy,
«'ain't it fine ?" Without a word the
expert got into the canoe alone, pushed
off and paddled away, reaching the
Portage two days later. Three days
after he had gone a party of timber
cruisers happened by'and found Jimmy, almost starved, almost crazed
by mosquitoes and in the last stages
of anguish from lack of tobacco and
whiskey, still on the island.
B-at he is starting for London with
his pockets full of samples and his
mind full of admonitions from the
denizens of Rat Portage. May be
he'll sell his mine; stranger things
have happened.—Minneapolis Journal,	
Perhaps the most interesting lighthouse in this country is on Tillamook
Rock, off the Pacific coast, about 20
miles south of the Columbia river.
The top of the rock is 92 feet above
the sea and the lamp is 136 feet high.
The rock is very steep on three sides
and quite steep on the fourth. It is
so dangerous to vessels that the government decided, in 1879, to build a
lighthouse on it, ' The first man who
tried to land was drowned, and his
fellow workmen gave it up. Another
gang was sent, and nine men succeeded in getting on tha rock. They
cut steps so as to reach the top. Afterward men and material for the light
house were landed with a traveling
basket that ran along a cable stretched from the top ot a ship some distance away. It took two years to
finish the work. The Pacific con-
stantly rolls and surges abouLTrilla-
waters bring on appendicitis and
stomach troubles; coffee produces indigestion; tea makes one nervous;
buttermilk disarranges the stomach,
unless drunk only occasionally; chocolate is so rich as to prove deleterious;
fruit juice produces headache and
sour stomach; and so on down through
the line. To avoid all these possible
dangers, one can drink nothing but
solids -—Commercial Appeal.
J. A.'Munson has nearly finished his
contract for hauling; 1*200 tons of ore
from the Canni mine, on the west fork
of Kettle river, to tlie C.P.R. at Midway,
thence destined for the Standard smelter
at Boundary Falie
mook rock, and it is one ofthe wildest
spots on earth. Ten years ago, during a storm, a tremendous wave broke
off a 90-pound chunk from the bottom
ofthe rock and flung it through the
lamp, 186 feet above. Frequently
heavy seas break 20 or 30 feet above
tbe lamp and smash the glass plates
around it.	
Religion, at first independent of morality, gradually took morality under its
protection, and the supernaturallsts
have ever since tried to persuade mankind that the existence of ethics is
bound up with that of supernaturallsm.
I am not of that opinion.—T. H. Huxley.
The pope's "infallibility" was derived
from the vote of an assembly of cardinals, each of whom was fallible; out of
their fallibility they assumed to bring
infallibility. The principle upon which
the majority obtain "rights" not possessed by the minority or by one Individual is a papal principle and can lead
only to despotism.—Sentinel of Liberty.
And why drag thU dead weight of a
Sunday school over the whole Christendom? It is natural and beautiful that
childhood should inquire, and maturity
should teach; but it Is time enough to
answer questions when they are asked.
Do not shut up tbeyoung people against
their will in a pew, and force tbe chll*
dren to ask them questions for an hour
or two againit their will.—Emerson.
There Is no despair so deep as the
despair of a homeless man or woman.
To roam tbe roads of the country or the
streets of the city, to feel that there Is
no rod of ground on which the feet can
rest, to halt weary and hungry outside
lighted windows and hear laughter and
song within—the* are the hungers and
rebellions that drive men to crime and
women to shame.—Hamlin Oarland.
