Mine water is ordinarily objectionable
for feeding boilers because it is likely
to contain acids and sulphates destructive in their action. Sulphate of lime
forms, occasioning scale; corrosion or
pitting below the -vater line is primarily
caused hy the action of a free acid. The
re-agent for ammonium sulphide is, approximately, bicarbonate of soda. Sulphate of copper will produce complete
ium and sulphide of copper.

^Interesting Budget of News and Comment From'
^ the Smelter City.

An alarming incident occurred in
Nelson last week. A furnished house,
with bath, hot water and all modern
conveniences, to say nothing of the
piano, was let for ten dollars a month,
and there is panic among the landlords,
who, notwithstanding the fact that
there are numerous vacant houses ou
every street, have resolutely combined
to keep rents up to a prohibitive figure,
with the result that desirable tenants
are driven into shacks while desirable
properties remain a drug in the real
estate market. With such a precedent
to encourage them tenants will begin
to demand a reduction in rent and the
shackers will begin to dream of a habitation and a name among the fashionable fraternity of the city.
Other snaps in houses have been
secured by the few families who have
been daring enough to take up house-
where the Sisterhood of Sin once had its
l'he. amount of capital invested in  quarters.   Those houses, though most
electrical enterprises in the United
States today may be estimated at about
$4 000,000,000, of which about $1,200,-
o0:>,000 represents the electric lighting
industry, 81,800,000,000 the electric railways, ami 8150,000,000 electrical manufacturing plants, lu nearly every case
these investments have been increasing
from year to year in au almost incredi
!>le ratio The number of persons employed in electrical works of all kinds
in the United States is estimated to be
more than half a million.

It was the same polished gentleman
who later on delivered himself of the
following wail: "How 'umiliating it is
to be. obliged to dine at the same table

The English victims of arsenic poison in beer now number more than
115 dead and more than 1000 ill. The
area affected is confined within a
hundred mile radius from Manchester, but the panic among beer drinkers
has spread almost throughout  the
Whole  country. Tt Iias~T)een  com
pletely established that the ca vise of
die poisoning ifi arsenic in the * ol-
phuric acid used in the manufacture
of glucose which the English brewers
employ in the place of malt and hops
in making cheap beer. The poison
has thus far been traced to only one
establishment, which supplied glncose
sugar to several brewers in the Midlands and the north. An uualysis
shows that some beers sold in salooni
contain arsenic sullictent easily to
kill any persistent drinkor, as much
as one-sixth of a grain being found
in a pint. The fact that arsenic is a
cumulative poison makes it more
dangerous. — Populnr Science.

FELLOW PILGRIMS: The LedGK is located at NewDenver. B. C. and can be traced to ninny parts of the earth. It comes to the front
every Thursday and has never been raided by the sheriff, snowslided by cheap silver, or subdued by the fear of man. It works for the trail
blazer as well as the bay-windowed and champagne-flavored capitalist. It aims to be ou the riitht side of overythini* and believes that hell
should be administered to the wicked in large doses. It has stoon the test of time, ami nn ever-increasing paystreak is proof that it is
better to tell the truth, even if the heavens do occasionally hit our smokestack. A chute of Job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the financier. Come in and see us, but do not, nut the bull do-* on the cranium, or chase the black cow from our water
barrel: one is savage and the other a victim of thirst. One of tlie noblest works of creation is the man who always pays the printer: he is

In the Southern States an organization composed of negroes, formed

thoroughly the revolts of the flesh;
and, lastly, the syslematit! abandonment of all intellectual culture,

The true Christian not only feels
no need of culture, because this is
a worldly principle and opposed to
feeling, he has also no need of
(natural) love. God supplies to
him the want of love, of a wife, of
a family.—Feuerbach.
In the study of science there is
bigotry, no persecution. It teaches
charity, it teaches a well-ordered
life, it teaches the world to be more
kind. It is the great new path of
knowledge into the future.—.James
Lane Allen.
After death all that we have ever
known of a man is gone: all that
we have ever seen of him is dissolved into its component elements:
it does not disappear so as to leave
us at liberty to imagine that it may
have gone to exist elsewhere, but
is actually used upas material for
other purposes. So completely is
this the case that, as Sir .lames
Mackintosh observes, "the doctrine
of a resurrect ion could scarcely have
arisen among people who buried
their dead." — W. K. Greg.

lUas a modern Reformer
Once there was a Town that was
having a Total  Abstinence Jamboree.    The Excitement over Temperance was becoming Intemperate,
all on yjcount of a Reclaimed Sot
who  was conducting a Series of
Meetings   at,   Central   Hall.    The
Lecturer   claimed   to   have   been
Ossified for 15 years at a Stretch.
He had a sodden  Past that read
like a Session of the  Legislature.
He had been down  in  the Gutter
and told about it every Evening.
The Front Rows were filled  with
horror-stricken   Old   Ladies   and
sympathetic young Girls who shuddered when he told how he used to
hoist Strong Drink until he would
see green Anacondi and polka-dot
Lizards peeking out  from  behind
the Morris Chair.
The former Soak took particular
.Delight in telling what a Brute he
had been all during the Time that
he was doing  Business with the
Rum Fiend.    According to his own
Story   he   must   have  enjoyed a
Thirst   that   was   a   Pippin.    He
touched up the Black Bottle every
f> Minutes or so.    In the whole  15
Years of continuous Toot he never
'had been known to compromise on
a Suit or take a Cigar and put it in
his Pocket to smoke After a While.
Nothing but the  Red  Eye  would
do for Oscar when he started on a
Bender.    He said  that he sold a
Locket   containing   his   Mother's
Picture in order to get his  Morning's   Morning.     Once   he   broke
open the Savings Bank  belonging
to his little Brother and  took  out
(5.1   Cents   to   blow   for   Alcohol.
When  his darling  Sister   remonstrated  with him,  he chased her
with   a   Poker.      He   forged   his
Father's Name to a Check rather
than do without his  Liquor.    In
fact he had been an all-round Pup
which could not justly be claimed
for Root Beer,Moxie or Hot Chocolate.
So when the Rescue Corps went
after the Major, it had a large Contract on hand. The Ladies tried
to wrestle him to Earth and pin a
Blue Ribbon on him, but he bade
them stand back and declared for
Personal Liberty. His idea of Personal Liberty was to drink it or
leave it alone, although he never
had tried the Latter.
The Ladies told him that he
would be a hopeless Inebriate in
less than a Year unless he shunned
the Wine-Cup. He replied that
the Wine-Cup never could land
him, because he went against nothing but the Low Ball, which means
a full Jigger and then about another Finger for Luck.
The Landlady at the Boarding
House at which the Major lived
was one of the Earnest AVorkers.
She was a Good Soul,and she longed
to wean the Major away from the
Old Stuff and get his Nose bleached.
She advised him to take the Gold
Cure, but the Major said they
never would get a Drink Cure in
him unless they hurried it into him
while he was Asleep. The Landlady gave him "Ten Nights in a
Bar-Room" to read,and had a little
Girl'sing "Father, Dear Father,
Come Home With Me Now," for
his especial Benefit, but it did not
seem to do any good. Also she
gave him a ('hart showing that the
Interior of the Moderate Drinker's
Stomach resembles a colored Map
of Asia Minor. When he came
down to Dinner he found at his
Plate a Card representing a Snake
with a forked Stinger coiled around
a Bottle of Rhine Wine, and below
it was some Printed Matter to the
effect that the Intoxicants used in

would cluster round and offer Congratulations. The ordinary Man
who had never been through the
Tremens or assaulted his'Folks had
to retire to the Background,feeling

a few Schwahcn Schutzenfests and
Annual Banquets dropped back into
the Amateur Class and had nothing

"I have always understood that

said the Lecturer.
"Not at all.   It is a Shortage of

this was a clear case of Value Received. The Public Schools had
filled his youth with Sorrow, while
the Distilleries had helped him to

, A tourist tells how he traveled with
a young couple, evidently on tlieir
honeymoon, and the passengers in
that particular car were in the grins
most of the time over their antics.
The bride had got the man she
loved, and she didn't care who saw
her put her head on his shoulder.
The bridegroom had got. a farm with
his wife, and it he wanted to feed
her on sweels, or squeeze her hand,
whose business was it?"
A little old man sat directly opposite the couple, and he looked at them
bo often that the young husband fin •
ally explained*.
"We've just got married."
"I knowed it all the time," chuckled the other.
"And we can't help it, you know."
"No, you can't; I'll be blowed it
you can."
"I presume it all seems very silly
to an old man like you," continued
the husband.
"Does it? Does it?" cackled the
old fellow, "Well, I can tell you it
does not, then. I've been there three
times over, and now I'm on my way
to marry & fourth. Silly! Why,
children, it's Paradise b'iled down!"

Whose glory men acknowledge now-
Had Colon harbored in his breast
Drena of the critic's scorn, his prow
Had ne'er been pointed to the West.

Not one immortal line or word
Of Hamlet would enrich our, tongue.
And no man ever would have hoard

Sat down in dread of critics who
Forever wait to biu«li to scorn
The thing!1 that other people do.

Captain Yule of the British steamship Myrtledene, which recently arrived from Antofagasta, Chili, with a
cargo of silver and manganeae ores,
says that while anchored in one of
the small harbors in the Straits of
Magellan, awaiting the coming of
daylight to continue through the tortuous channel to the Atlantic, his
vessel was boarded by a band of
nearly sixty nude savages and he
supplied them with food and clothing.
In the party were men, women and
children, nil copper-colored. They
were most docile despite the fact that
Captain Yule absolutely refused to
supply them with any liquor. "We
had between the point, where I stop
ped and the next available spot for
j anchorage," said Captain Yule, "about
i 70 miles to go, and as the sun was
getting low, I determined, as a
measure of safety, to stop and await
the coming of daylight. We had
hardly gotten the port anchor overboard before our attention was at
traded by figures emerging i from
huts on the shore and rushing down
toward the water. Soon they swarmed into boats and were alongside.
At first I thought of getting under
way, but this could not be done in
time to get away from them, so we
welcomed them on board, fearing all
the time that our last hours on .earth
were approaching. When (hey

head, and pointed to a cask of fresh
water, which.my men dealt out to
