HEW  DBNVEB MKMORIAI- SBRVICB
Never in the history of New Denver
ha* an event been so universally participated in and heartily endorsed aa
the memorial service held in Bosun hall
last Saturday afternoon. Every citizen
and every child in town took advantage
of the opportunity to express their love
and: .wteem for the most womanly
queen 'and queenly woman that ever
lived—Victoria tbe Good.
It is doubtful if there has ever been a
more impressive service held in a mining camp the world over than that of
Saturday. All classes, all shades, all
alios, all characters joined heartily in
the service, and it seemed that upon
this occasion, at least, all felt that they
could Jay aside any social or intellectual
differences that may exist and, with one
heart and yoice.do hoior to the memory
of the Queen that has/been the Mother
of England all these rears.
The hall was taitefully draped in

The Stars and Stripta drooped side by
side with the Union; Jack. There was
seating capacity .tor 850 and every
available chair and bench was occupied
as well as the stairway leading to the
gallery. In the neighborhood of 400
people were In the building, and a more
earnest, loyal crowd was never gathered
together.
About 1:80 o'clock the march was be*
gon from Union Hall, led by the band,
One hundred men were in line,composed
of the fratornal societies and members
of tbe Miners' Union. The dead march
by the band was particularly well rendered. With the first sad strains the
tmpresslveness of the occasion seemed
to touch the heart of the whole people,
•nd the town assumed a stillneia that
was liko the stillness of death.j With
the entrance of the mourners in line the
ball was quickly filled, a few teats being
reserved for ladles and their escorts
that were soon to arrive from Silverton.
On the arrival of the s.s. Slocan the
audience was increased by about 75
from Silverton.
Programs appropriate for the occasion
were distributed, with tho hymns that
were to be sung printed thereon, thus
making It convenient for evoiyone to
Join In the service.
The addresses by Revs. Alexander
and Roberts were deeply effective, thst
of the latter being unusually interesting
in that he was fortunate enough to be
able to recite incidents of bis youth
when hs was at the old home, and frequently saw the good Queen as she
drove by In hor carriage, iucidents that
showed the love of the youth of England for the Mother of their land.
Mrs. Wolfe opened the service by a
piano rendition of tho Dead March Iu

Two lynx, very large and dangerous
looking, were met on the Bosun trail by
George Lendrum Sunday evening.
George was returning trom skating and
carried nothing but a heavy walking
stick. This he held in reserve and
rolled snowballs at the beasts, the larger
of which crouched in the trail, threw
back its ears, and made ready to spring.

.HOME  _"RO_t  THK,-WAR.   .
After an absence ol more than a year
L R Forbes returned last Wednesday
evening from his participation in the
South African war. Many of his friends
went to Rosebery to meet him, and
accompanied him to Now Denver,where
the band and the citizens of the town
were gathered to greet him. The train
from Nakusp was gaily decked with
Hags and bunting, and the Union Jack
was displayed by the s.s. Slocan.
A conquering hero was never given
a more hearty welcome home than that
accorded Mr. Forbes. At the wharf he
was presented with a purse by the
cltitons, and escorted to the hotel by
tbe band and his host of admirers. It
was made the occasion for general re*
Jolclng and was celobrated to the satisfaction cf all.
Mr. Forbes has little to say at this
time regarding the war and South
Africa, but is pronounced In his expression of pleasure at getting home
again.      	
THE   HOT   SPRINGS.
On Arrow lake, about four hours' run
from New Denver, are situated the.now
celebrated Halcyon Hot Springs. The
hotel accommodation is excellent. Owing to the difficulty in getting cooks the
table at times In the past has been
slightly below par, but the management
are determined In the future to have
the cuisine equal to anything In the
west. Tho bathing facilltloi are unsurpassed at any springs in the west.
The water euros and assists nearly all
the diseases that trouble the flesh.
Many a rheumatic patient, unable to
walk alone, has thrown away his
crutches after a short sojourn In the
baths. It beats the shrine of St. Anne.
Miners suffering from lead poisoning
are quickly relieved. The** springs
are just tho place to go If a release from

From statistics at hand 1* appears the
Canard Line landed in America last
yearM.»70 steerage passengers. This
Line is nor in a better portion than
ever to take care of its constantly in*
creasing steerage passenger traffic.
With their already grand fleet of floating palaces, i. e., Campania, Lucania,
Umbria, Etruria, Servia, Aurania, etc.,
and the late, additions, viz., the magnificent new twin-screw steamers,
Saxonia and Ivernia, 600 feet long,
18,950,tons, having special new features
for steerage passengers, in fact, Twentieth Century Steerage Accomodation,
and the large twin-screw steamer,
Ultonia, 518 feet long, 9,000 tons, (the
latter carrying steerage passengers
only), the Cunard Line will be able to
maintain a service of two steamers each
week, with fortnightly extra sailings
during the rush season, thereby giving
ample room for all passengers at all
seasons, giving them prompt transportation with no delays. These facts
speak for themselves, and our readers,
will do well to consider them when
sending* for their friends during the
present year. "A word to the wise is
sufficient."      ,'

ties, copper has been found by the diamond drill at a depth of 2200 feet. The
High Ore shaft is to have a depth of
4000 feet.
Manganese bronze in the form of
sheets, for mining screens, is sometimes
used, acid mine waters having no action
on it. For rolling into sheets a mixture
containing more copper and less manganese is now employed.
It is 42 years since George Jackson
made the first recorded discovery of
gold in Colorado, at Jackson's bar, now
Idaho Springs. It is 58 years since J.
W. Marshall made the historical discovery of gold at Coloma, California.
At Cripple Creek, Colorado, the miner
may go up to his work from the town
on an electric car, go down in the mine
by an electric hoist, operated by electric
signals, the shaft being kept dry by an
electric pump, do his work by an electric
light, talk to the town and thence to
the world by an electric telephone, run
a drill electrically operated, and fire his
shots by an electric blast.
In any given conditions minerals
tend to assume the formB most stable
under those conditions. Since the conditions prevailing during vein formation are very different from those prevailing afterwards, It may be inferred
that-the products of the first process
might easily be changed. Such is, indeed, the case, as one finds many altered
rocks which have evidently undergone
more than one change—Especially near
the surface, under the influence of oxidizing waters, the minerals formed in
tile rocks along veins are apt to suffer
great changes. Examples are frequent,
showing that the minerals which filled
the open spaces along a vein have been
completely dissolved and partly or
wjiolly replaced by others. This is par*
ticularly true of fillings of calcite or
bliryte. Instances are known in which
large masses of these minerals have
been completely dissolved and replaced
by quartz, as in the case of those of the
Do Lamar mine, Owyhee county, Idaho.

The ore is first crushed in ball mills
and leached with cupric chloride solutions. The solution dissolves copper,

being reduced to the cuprous state.
After purification and being treed from
silver, tbe solution is allowed to flow to
a compartment with carbon anodes and
copper cathodes. Chlorine is liberated
at the anodes, regenerating the cupric
solution, which is returned to a fresh

Last week's shipments were 150 tons
heavier than any week* of the month,
reaching 751 tons, and bringing the
total for the month up to 8,040. The
increase was largely due to the fact
that the Payne has resumed its regular
shipments; having contracted with the
Trail sm'eltor to take its entire output.
It is very encouraging to see the ore
shipments so large at this season of the
yaar. That they will be largely increased as the season advances and the
big properties, such as the Idaho,
Slocan Star, Enterprise and Emily
Edith resume regular shipments,
is certain. To this list the early summer months will see many others added,
and there is every reason to believe
that tbe list of Slocan shipping mines
will not only be increased, but the output from tho old properties will be much
greater than in previous years, and that
the total output for the season will
reach tho fifty thousand ton mark.
In this connection it is interesting to
know that of the 29 British Colombia
mines that have paid dividends all but
seven are Slocan properties. And (t is
of further Interest to note that of all the
Slocan mines that have paid dividends
few if any will be off the shipping list
this year. Of the 16,892,000 paid to
date, nearly 94,000,000 has been paid by
mines in the Slocan propor. There are
a lew properties owned by close corporations from whom the profits of their
mines cannot bo learned, but otherwise
the following is almost a complete list
of tho dividends paid by mines of this
province since inining commenced:

The State of Washington does

Tbe Duke of York has the measles. Microbes are lacking in respect for nobility. Probably the

Death has about the only sure

the game of life, and although
many hold out for a long time, it

Most of the great cities in the

Van Wyck, the Dutch mayor of

Trouble acts differently on different people. S6me seek surcease of
sorrow in tile flowing bowl, while

proper way to live on this planet of

Billy Bryan has started a newspaper. JuBt our, luck. When a

however, as his gigantic intellect
will enable him to dispense with
the services of an overdraft editor.

When the South African war
broke out Barbarian Brown took
my paper, and had a claim against
Paul Kruger's government for

two homes—Brown's and mine.
Recently Brown has succeeded in
getting the U. S, government to

Last Monday the earthly remains of Queen -Victoria were consigned to the grave amid the greatest pomp and ceremony ever seen
at a funeral. Thus endeth the life
of a woman who for more than half
a century was the highest political
representative of the great English
nation. She w is a good and noble
woman, and her memory will ever
be green with the lovers of royalty.
Surrounded by jevery luxury, and
enjoying the highest position within the gift" of a great people, it
would have been madness upon
her part to have been other than
good. Our gracious Queen left a
fortune of millions of dollars,
but without a pang of envy or selfishness thousands of her subjects,
without a breakfast in sight, bowed
their heads in grief and murmured,
"Our poor Queen, she's dead!
May God bless her." The light
from a throne is far, reaching.   „
Life
and
Cards
Life and cards resemble
each other. Many of us
are dinked to death by
playing heart solos we
cannot win. Sometimes
we only have a deuce in the hole
where we thought an ace reposed.
A hand of diamonds with a king at
the head is often mingled in the
debris through a collision with
clubs topped by a bullet. Many of
us want the sweet music of & solo
best when the croak of a frog would
suit our stack much better. Twenty-
one is the age at which all expect
to win, although many are A'bust-
ed"^t^sixteen. There" is many a
slip between the ' 'split'' and the
check rack. It is not always warm
when the bal rolls on the; green.
It is zero if you are not on it. If
you are it is zero for the other fellow. Many of us have to beg when
clubs turn up.   The falling of a
queen is often hailed with delight,
although three of. them will turn
pale when confronted by four plebeian deuces. The pot is not always for the swift. The man who
waits generally gets everything,
even cold feet. He who bets all on
a single card often sleeps where
ozone is more plentiful than carbon, while he who spreads his bets
frequently swallows the bank and
•becomes a plutocrat. He who has
never toyed with the cards saves
himself endless misery, but lacks
an experience that pares the top off
of human nature, and lays bare the
quivering passions that shake the
human soul in its desire for gold,
without labor. By standing pat price-
the world does not know, if there
is no Bhow-down, whether you hold
the bobtail straight of poverty or
the royal flush of wealth. Many a
battle is won by courage,and many
a poor hand is hoisted into fame
through nerve. The deuce gotten
honestly is more pure than the ace
raised on a hold-out. Hearts and
diamonds rule this life, but clubs
and spades are in at the death.
The spade is black, but it always
turns up when the player can no
longer draw cards and shovels hiiu
into that £itty, called the grave, j
from which there is no appeal, and
from which no man has ever returned to tell how cards are dealt
iu the next world. Some reports
say the game is a hot one, while
others say that the bank in Paradise
has gold stacked up on the street.

The following lines were written by
Thomas Holwell on the occasion of the
celebration of the centenary of Burns'
birthday at Shakespeare, Perth Co,,
Ont., to Ins friend Alex Mitchell:
No Warrior's theme is ours tonight
' (   Of laurels won in bloody fight,
1 A   Or battle-field's soul-sickening sight,
So often lost and won.
A nobler cause now calls us forth;
In memory of departed worth—
We're met to celebrate the birth
Of Scotia's favorite son.
Onejiundred summers' suns have shone,
Alhundred winters come and gone,
Since Bobby Buyns, the plowman's son
-A child of earth became.
And many a summer's sun shall glow,
And'manv a writer come and go,
E're our hearts shall cease to overflow

This night we'll drink in deep respect

The hard,; although of hutpble birth,
Despised the great ones of the earth
If destitute of real worth ,  : j
Or oppressions of mankind.
He valued not their titles: vaini .v
Their spacious halls or wide domain,
' Their noble blood he did disdain,
If not of noble mind.
From humble life the poet drew
His characters, so bold and true,
And placed before the fancy's view
Their faults and virtues too.

Wives are not jealous .during.hay-
harvest, and husbands never fault-find
because they each get even by allowing
a mutual license.
In Scotland during haying Dime every
rparried man works alongside of some
other man's wife. To the psychologist
it is somewhat curious how the desire,
for propriety is over-ridden by a stronger
desire—the desire for the shilling. The
Scotch farmer says "anything to get the
hay in"—and by loosening" a bit ,of the
strict bauds of social cuetom the .hay is
harvested.
In the hay-harvest the law of natural
selection.holdsjand trysts continue year,
after yoar. Old lovers meet, touch

xOf coiirse this joyousnege of the 'hiay-

France; Swit-zerlarid apd ;tbe Tyrol?
•Ikjw the -bright costumes of the men
arid jaunty attire of the women gleam
in the glad sunshine! But the practice
of pairing is carried to a degree of perfection iii Scotland that 1 haye not
noticed elsewhere. Surely it is a great
.economic scheme!
'7 .'It ..te like that invention of a Connecticut man which utilizes the ebb and
flow of the ocean tides to turn a gristmill. And it seems queer that no one
has ever attempted to utilize the waste
of dynamic force involved in the ntain-
tainance of the company sofa.       ■
In Ayrshire I have started out with a
haying party of twenty—ten men and
ten women—at six o'clock in the morning and worked until six•■' at night. I
never worked so hard or did so; much.
All day long there was a fire of jolly
jokes and jibes, Interspersed with' song,
while beneath all ran a gentle: hum of
confidential interchange of thought.
The man who owned the field was there
to direct our effpfts and to urge us on
by merry raillery, threat and joyous
rivalry. The point in this—we did the
work.
digestedrprepeding meal-.is always, in

We dress for the house as if we lived
outdoors—especially the men. The
average man, sitting,in his office or at
home,with the temperature higher than
it wouldbe on a summer day, has on a
thick winter suit and a thick suit of
underwear—enough covering adequately to-protect him if he were walking
about briskly in the open air on a bitter
winter day. The women are more
sensible in this respect, hence their
greater freedom from colds.
Our houses are heated with an almost
poisonous dry heat to a point that
makes the skin shrivel and crack.
Do yoiv notice your furniture, how it
dries out and falls to pieees? Yet
American furniture iB especially season*
ed andput together with a particular
kind of glue with a view to meeting the
American conditions of fierce dry heat.
If the furniture can't stand this heat,
what must be its effect upon the body ?
Living rooms that are chilly are not
healthful. But they are less unhealthful
than living rooms that are filled with
hot, dry, stale air.
If you wish to avoid colds you must
avoid the cauBe of colds. '

THE    BPKEAD   OF   OBI P.
Reports from tbe United States are
to the effect that the country is being
visited by an epidemic of grip, more
severe than anything that has -been
felt since the visit of the disease in
1890 and 1891. The,peculiarity of
the disease this year is that though
■fewcases are fatal, the number is
enormous; and that pneumonia follows in a great number of cases as a
sequel to the attack of grip.
If symptoms ot the grip are felt,
two courses are recommended by the
best authorities.   The first is to go !to
bed; the second is to send for a doctor.
The quinine and whiskey prescription, which was at one time so popular, is said to be an inventioD that
kills more than it cures.   The Superintendent of the Dakota Board of
Take heed, ye Captains of Industry, i Health reports that during a severe

NOWLEDGE isn't wisdom, bat without knowledge it would be difficult
to make a inurt wise. If we would
act,wisely in anything we must first gain the
knowledge to know how to act and then with
wisdom put our knowledge into. practical use.
When a man is casting about, looking for a
location where he can make his home with the
assurance that, if he "attends to his knitting"
and honestly strives to make the best of his opportunities, his efforts will be crowned with success, he wants to know the merits and demerits
of the locality and the conditions existing, so
as to act with wisdom.
It is because men act without wlsdon. on very
little knowledge that so many make failures of
life. They are led, by impulse and flirt with
Dame Fortune like a giddy school girl. The
result Is always the same. They fall; and when
they go down they take some body with them,
and the community at large suffers in some
measure with every failure. It is not failures,
but successes, that go to build up a community.
One strong, energetic, successful man in a town,
who has won through sheer "stick-to-ltiveness1'
and merit, is worth a dozen hangers-on, who,
without wisdom or worth, attempt to win by
pot luck.      i      •-  ■ i . • , .\ -, ,      (
It is the former class that are wanted ; in this
part of British Columbia. If any such are seeking an, opening, they; can come this way. There,
are openings for every one. Success will be
their's as sure as they work for it. New Denver
makes the Drat bid for this class of men. We
have some here but there is room for more The
inducements offered are many. We will state a
few, as briefly as possible:
New Denver's location, ou a plateau sloping to
the shore ot Slocan lake, makes it an ideal spot
for a residential centre, which it Is fast being
made Its homes are far above the average found
In most mining camps, and its public halls and
buildings mid business blocks are commodious,
substantial, and built with a view to perman-
enoy There is nothing shoddy about them.
Like the men who built them, they are here to
stay.*
It is but natural that this feeling of confidence
in New Denver's stability should prevail. Aside
from tbe advantages, that the town has as a residential centre, it is fast becoming the headquarters for some of the strongest mining companies operating In the Slocan. The Silver
mountain, Goat mountain and Fidelity-Bosun
mines, carrying big gold, silver and lead values,
are rapidly developing Into heavy shippers.
Their payrolls at present will not aggregate more
than 100 men, but this number wili be more than
tripled in a short time.
New Denver Is the banking and commercial
centre, as well as the residential town on the
beautiful Slocan lake. The business (lone by the
Bank of Montreal Is surprisingly large and ever
increasing. All the local mines and those of
Pour Mile, Ten Mile and Springer and Lemon
creeks pay through the looal bank.
New Denver's school facilities are good; its
churches are neat, well-constructed and well
attended. Its streetsaresldewalked In all direc
tions. The town is not laid out with one street
and a back yard,but covers fully a mile square
and 1b without doubt the prettiest spot for a home
in the mining section of British Columbia,
New Denver's citizens are the pioneers ofthe
Slocan. They have made money in thc camp.
and re-invested it. ■ They own their homes and1
are continually Improving them, contident that'
they will be amply repaid for the expenditure In1
ihe comfort and enjoyment of thcrn.
There are openings in New Denver for several
lines of business.
New Denver's scenic beauty is unparalled in'
North America; its climate is temperate, and
the health of Its citizens marvelously good—sickness from looal causes Is seldom experienced

streams that gambol in the mountains,
and pious politicians that gamble in

men, sharp lawyers, sharp financiers
and sharp-nosed gossips, fertile plains

KOUKUT   BURX8.
The business of Robert Burns was
love-making    All love is good, but
some kinds of love are better than
> others.   Through Burns' perchant for
'   falling in love we have his songs.
A Burns biograph Ih simply a record
of his love affairs, and the spasms of
repentance that followed his lapses are
made manifest in religious verse.
Poetry is the very earliest form of
literature, and is the natural expression
of a person In love; and 1 suppose we
might as well admit the fact at once,
that without lovo there would bo no
poetry.
Poetry Ih the bill and coo of sex.
All poets aro lovers, and all loveri,
either actual or potential, are poets.
Potential poets are the people who read
poetry, and so without lovers the poet
would never have a market for liis
ware*.
If you cease to ho moved by religious
emotionss if your spirit is no longer
•urged by music and you do not linger
over cortain IIiiob of poetry, it is b«-
cause the love instinct in vour heart
has withered to ashes of rosea. It is
idle to Imagine Bobby Burns as a staid
member ot the Kirk; had he been, them
would now bo no Bobby Bums.
The literary nbullltlons of Robert
Burns, he himself has told us, began
shortly after he ranched the age of indiscretion; and the occasion wan his
being paired in tho hay-Hold, according
to Scottish custom, with a txmiiloUMfl
This custom of pairing rtlll nndurf.*,

about to have, or has, or Is just recovering from a cold. Cold-cures are selling

a great harvest.
There aro three innln causes of this
plague:

Second—Too heavy clothing.
Third—Overheated houses.

YOU'RE   IT.
If you?resore
To the core,
With aching bonas,
And husky tones
When you speak,
And you're weak
Iu the knees.
And you sneeze,
And often cough
Your head.near off,
And you note
That your throat
Feels quite raw,
And your jaw
Feels as if"
You'd got a biff
And dull pains
Vex your brains,
Then you've caught it,
You have got it-
It's the grip.
If you feel
The heat steal
O'er your frame
Like a flame,
Till you burn
And'you yearn
For chunks of ice
At anv price,
Then like a flash
Tho shivers dash
From head to feet,
A chill complete,
And you shake,
Aud you quake,
And there's dosire
Forafiro
And something hot
Right on the spot
To quickly drink,
And you think
Bight there and then
You'll ne'er be warm again,
Then you've caught it,
You Have got it —
It's the grip.
It's in the air,
It's everywhere;
The microbe of the grip
It's on another trip,
And up and down,
Through all the town,
By night and day
It seeks its prev,
And it's the fad
And you are sad,
Or even mad,
Or if you sneeze, ;
Or cough or wheeze,
Or feel too warm,
Or chills alarm
To wear a look of grim dismay
And hoarsely say:
"I've caught it, •■-=
I've got it-
It's the grip."

MINING   IN   POKTDOAL.
H. R. Jaatrow, in the Mining _ Engineering Journal of New York, says:—
Possibly no European country that possesses mineral deposUs to any extent
has been so unfortunate in the develop-
"Tiereni^ritsTniniiig"indUKtrieras~Fortu~
gal. Among the list of natural resources existing in this little kiugdom,mines
occupy a front rank. In many districts
there are deposits of iron, antimony,
eopper, tin and coal. These minerals,
which abound in various sections,would
be a source of considerable wealth to
the country under a system of serious
and energetic development. But up to
the present little or no practical progress has been made in this direction,
with thu result that the country is
gradually being left fat* behind in industrial and economic advancement.
Thus far. altogether 500 mining con
cessions have been granted in Portugal,
covering an area of about 110,820 acres-
612 concessions represent mines with an
area of 67,386 acres, producing metallic
ores; 29, with 18,840 acres, produce coal;
12 are coal and iron mines (22,700 acres),
while 7 concessions represent ground
containing deposits, amounting to 1,804
acres, of asphalt, graphite, asbestos, etc
Even the mines, (or which condftsMons
have been obtained, are little developed,
the majority being untouched, notwith
standing tho fact that few need deep
boring. On the contrary, almost all
tbe large deposits can easily be worked
(or many years before heavy expenditures for shaft sinking will become
necessary
Practically the only Portuguese mines
in actual operation at present are the
eopper deposits at San Domingos and
Tlnoca; the coal mine* of PejacBuareo*,
Paasal de Balxo and rfan Pedro da Cova;
the manganese rolnox of Freixal, Per-
rajredo and Cerro das Camas FreliMi
the lead nines of Bracal and Malhada*
the iron mlnra of Ayret and Han Bar*

many years, not only enough for home
consumption but for export. Coal is
also plentiful. San Pedro da Cova
alone possesses 4,000 acres of anthracite,
while the supply of soft -anthracite in
San Pedro is estimated at 11,500,000
tons. In addition there is a large
supply of brown coal in Leiria, the
suitability of which has already been
proven, ae well as the lump coal mines
of Cabo Mondege, whose wealth is considered inestimable, and which will produce easily between 80,000 and 100,000
tons annually. Other products useful
in the steel industry that exist in quantities, and of good quality, are limestone and manganese ore.
TWAIN   CHKEUKD   THEM   UP.
'•Well,'' said Mark Twain to the
amateur photographer, "you didn't
miss me altogether, as the sheriff of
the jail at Pretoria did. I visited
there and tried to cheer up the prisoners by telling them that if they
weren't in that jail they'd probably
be in some other. I told them they
ought to be thankful that they didn't
have to worry about where their next
meal was coming from—as I did.
"The sheriff liked me so well he
wanted to keep me for a year or two,
but I told him that I had promised to
patronize home industries when I
needed any jails. ,
"He said he was sorry, for he'd
rather have me for a prisoner since
he had heard me lecture that any
one he knew."
It was on his first visit to the Pretoria jail, to see the Johannesburg
reformers, that Mark Twain said it
had been the dream of his life to get
into jail, but misfortune dogged his
footsteps. Whenever he had committed anything it always happened
that no witnesses were around, and
he had never had sufficient reputation for veracity to get himself convicted without corroborative evidence,
"There is ho place on earth," he
said, "where a man could get such
uninterrupted quiet as in jail. 'Pilgrim's Progress' would never have
been written if Bunyan had not been
In jail, and Cervantes was privileged
to suffer in durance vile, and thus
was enabled to write 'Don Quixote.'

enjoying the intoxicating delights of
war without personal danger."
Twain ended by telling the prisoners that the insidious charms of jail
life would increase the longer they
remained in jail. He said he felt
this so strongly that he meant .o ask
Oom Paul to extend tlieir sentences.

BAPTIST   FISH.
"Down in the south," remarked a
man at one of the olnbs, "there exists
more of a religious atmosphere than
there is here in the north. So much
ofthe stories they tell have a sectarian flavor to them. One that I heard
while in Charleston was entirely new
to me, and it appeared to be so in the
circle of gentlemen where I heard it.
It ran this way: A dignified old
gentleman stood on one ot the oity
wharves watching an old darkey who
was fishing. No word passed between them until the darkey landed
a good sized lish. This was unhooked
and there was a look of disgust on
the face of the fisherman as he threw
the fish back into the water.
"Why did you throw that fish back
into the water instead of keeping
him, uncle?" queried the onlooker.
"He no good, massa."
"What kind ot a fish was it ?"
"We calls 'em Baptist fish, sah."
"And why Baptist fish, uncle?"
"Ah couldn't say fo' sure,  massa,
but I spects it's because dey spiles
soon a6 you gets 'em outen the water."
—Globe Democrat
The sight of a pleasure in which
we can not or else will not share
moves us to a particular impatience.
It may be because we are envious, or
because we are sad, or because we
dislike noise and romping, being so
refined, or because, being so philosophic, we have an overweighing
sense of life's gravity; at least, as we
go on in years, we are all tempted to
trown upon our neighbor's pleasure.
People are nowadays so fond ot resisting temptations; here is one to be
resisted. They are fond of self denial; aero is a propensity that cannot
be too peremptorily denied. There
is an idea abroad among moral people that they should make their
Tieighbore^OTdr~Gne'per_on~I—have"
to make good—myself. But ray duty
to my neighbor is much more pearly
expressed by saying that I have to
make him happy, If I may.—Robert
Louis Stevenson.

Prophet ot the brotherhood of man?
There is no peace on earth, there is

Influence—the Church and state—do
not want peace on earth or good will
toward men. Trust magnates and
Methodist bishops agree alike on this
and there are many, very many, with
slanted omniums who follow these
bellwethers down to death. Yet
America will celebrate Chrhtmas;
and heaven will sigh—and hell will
grin.
