Comstock was the father of American silver mining,making his great,
discovery oh the Hank of "Sunrise
peak," near what was afterwards
known as Virginia City, Nevada-.
The story of tho birth of American silver mining is an interesting
one, and one almost totally unknown. The vapid upbuilding of
California gave to Marshall's discovery a wide publicity and his
name is a* familiar one, but Com-
stock's equally important discovery
a few years later has been lost sight
of. Silver was first discovered in
America in the mine to which Comstock gave his name, and on the
Comstock lode can be found not
only the deepest mine working in
this country,but the methods there
employed for reducing the ores and
saving the precious metals have
been conducted on a grander scale
than is employed'elsewhere in the
Xlnti&iJiitati^^r^^
if we take into consideration the
power of the machinery used, the
scientific skill of modern--mining
engineering brought to boar, aud
which are so prominent a feature
of the mining methods on the Corn-
stock lode.
The discovery of silver was made
in .Nevada when that state was
known as ••Western Utah" in 1859.
The confirmed report of the discovery of the metal created as much
excitement in California as did the
discovery of gold in Sutter's mill
race in Coloinii.and the news spread
rapidly to all parts of the United
States. It was a great; discovery.
Taking into consideration permanency and ultimate value, the wide
area covered by silver mines, the
mini bur of employees cngagod in
producing the metal,and the wealth
and population it has contributed
to all the vast region lying between
the Koeky mountains on the east
and the Pacific ocean on the west,
the discovery of silver deserves to
rank above that of tlie discovery of
gold.
Entitled to equal credit for the
discovery of silver with Comstock
were his two partners,Peter O' Riley
and Patrick McLaughlin. It was
while prospecting for gold on  the
was black and heavy and after
washing a couple of bucketsful of
it the apron of the rocker was found
to be burdened with glittering particles of gold and they realized that
they had made a "strike."
Thus was American silver mining
born. On the apron also lodged
considerable quantities of rich sul-
phuret of silver, the despised
"heavy black stuff,'' which they
considered,worthless and which interfered with their collecting the
fine free gold particles. They were
at a loss how to rid themselves of
it. Other miners visited the claim
and they were advised to send some
of the "black stuff" to California
for assay, where it was determined
that it was almost pure silver. The
assays were made at Nevada City,
California, and the results so astonished the assayer that he was unable to believe his own figures.
Then came the great rush from
California and elsewhere. Many
hundreds of millions of dollars, in
both gold and silver, have since
been taken from the Comstock lode.

interests in the mine for 83,000,
which he rapidly squaiid-m-wi in
iUBf-.ipa.tlon. lie afterwards worked
as a cook at the different mines in
the vicinity of the Comstock and
finally died penniless while wandering from camp to camp.
O'Riley held on to his interest
until it was worth 850,000, for
which sum he sold, receiving part
of his pay in mining stock. He
started a hotel in Virginia City
called the Virginia House. A spirit
of speculation seized him and
through some deals in mining stock
he soon lost everything*. Tie was
an ardent spiritualist, and under
the directions of the spirits ho began driving a tunnel intooneof the
barren peaks of the Sierras, telling
his friends that he was sure to find
a richer vein than the Comstock.
While engaged in this work he lie-
camc insane and finally died in an
asylum at Wodhridge, Cal.
CouiHtock sold his interest in the
mine for 810,000. He then opened
small mercantile establishments at
Carson and Silver City. Having
no education and being entirely
ignorant of business it was only a
question of a few months before his
money was gone and he found him*
self  without a dollar.    He then

S3IELTKK TRUST MAKING TKOCRLK.
The situation in the Leadville District in Colorado is not altogether
bright at present, according to the Engineer and Mining .Journal, and there
are. many complaints from mine operators there. Some of these seem to be
justified, while mere, is doubtless a very
imperfect understanding of the market
conditions. The ores of the district
have been ..practically all going to tho
smelting works operated by the American Smelting and Refining Company,
and until within the past f«w months
there have been comparatively few
complaints with the exception of the
grumbling about rates, which is really
chroric in the district. Recently, how-
ever, the Smelting Company has been
taking all the iron sulphides it can get
thus giving the leading producers of
Mint class of ore an open inarket and
enabling them  to produce up  to their
Till! capacity. This market, however,
applies only to those properties which
have iron e-xclusively and tbe, trouble
which has arisen is iii connection with
thu leiul sulphide, ores. -The market for
these i'h at present completely tied up,
the .Smelting Company declining to
take the ores of that class, its plea being
that it is not receiving siliceous ores
enough to enable its, plants to handle
the full production. In consequence of
this a number of important mines in the
district are practically tied up and are
unable to dispose of Hie product oftheir
product. As these mines are ihe best
in the camp the situation in « had one
for both the operators and the inlnerw
employed. * * * We are informed
that some o( the leading mine managers of the district have announced that
if the present conditions continue they
will be. forced to himt down entirely, a
course which will naturally be very injurious to the camp.

our local government to roughlock
them with all kinds of taxes and restrictions. This action coupled with
the duties imposed by the Dominion government upon mining supplies and machinery has driven
much capital across the border,and
into distant lands. The great rush
to the Klondike was caused because at first prospecting in that
wilderness repaid individual effort
profitably. At the outbreak of the
stampede the laws were liberal
enough to suit anybody, but the
Government has gradually reversed
and reduced its policy to a leadpipe
cinch. The decrease in size of
claims, reservation of alternate
claims, and the royalty on the output has made mines harder to get
and less profitable when obtained.
The latest blow to placer mining in
the Klondike is the granting to
favored companies all the unclaimed
placer ground in the gold-bearing
area. It is in fact the granting of
the richest mining section of Can-
ada   to   favored    individuals   for
become immediately part of the
grant. In time the eraut will absorb all the district.
This policy will drive out prospectors, kill the Klondike towns,
and build up Alaska. Such action
upon the part of the Government
at Ottawa is ruinous to mining
sections. If one section can be
handed over to monopolists there
is nothing to prevent other sections
soon as found being handed over in
the same manner, thus offering no
incentive to brave dangers and endure hardships with the view of
obtaining riches from the maiden
placer grounds of Canada. The
men who frame our laws at Ottawa
evidently are not working for the
interest of the masses, but, then,
perhaps some of them are in the
play. (fold has power enough

Charles H. Parkhurst once said:
''It is one "of the supremest purposes of history—of law. gospel,
and Holy Spirit—to enable men lo
get over being brutes." How true
this is; yet how little realized. Men
are brutes, not because they were
intended to be by nature, but because it is easier to be brutal than
Christlike, and more common.
Every man and every woman born
of woman, was endowed with a disposition that nobody else was endowed with, and which nobody else
can cultivate. There are similarities of dispositions, but none just
the same. There is similarity of
tbo^hl7~bnit~TKrtwD^biiikra,i|rwlll'
absolutely agree upon any question
of oDiniou. Where there is no
difference in opinion thf.t_ \» no
individual thought, and where no
individval thought exists there eiui
be no development of disposition.
Disposition is something that is
God-given, but its development depends upon the individual.not upon
his neighbor, nor his pastor, nor
priest, nor God. How often we
meet such expressions: "What nn
angelic disposition," or "what a
mean dispositioned child,'' and how
little we think of what they menu.
Expressions of this kind do not
convey any in formation, good or
bad, as to the disposition of the
person spoken of. They simply
tell in an uncertain way what tin
impression of the person speaking
is of tlie one spoken of. To know
what the disposition of the one
spoken of is, you must know the
person personally, and then discover whether that pei-son has any
real developed disposition, or
whether he or she is simply a victim of circumstances and other
people's whims. I'ntil one's dis-
position is developed the brute will
and must predominate. It makes
no difference whether the individual is robed in the garments of a
king or togged in the rags of a
street urchin. Men and women
who have developed their i|i**|Mi«i-
limis have been heard from in the
world's history. No man wat-ever
born disposed lo be hi lite; but uu|J!
lie has become  complete   |,|.|vl,.|- ,,)'

they are understood today, only
apply to man's relations to man.
Disposition covers all this but goes
farther, /and. first and foremost,
places man in his proper attitude
towards God. People nowadays
are more thoughtful about tbe development of character and reputation than they are of their disposition, and thousands of men and
women go to their graves with
o-rand lives unlived. Thev were
moral cowards—afraid to develop
their dispositions because of ''what
others might say."
+
Real life is the development of
the disposition that is given us—
not in wasting and torturing that
disposition to please the crowd.
Without this development there
can be no real joy and gladness in
the heart, for no man lives that
does not know in his own heart if
he is misusing the life that. God
has given him, and if he knows and
feels this he cannot know what
happiness is. Some dispositions
aj-e higher and loftier than others.
But no'one disposition is capable of
more good than another. Lofty
dispositions make men lowly, and
to be lowly is to be Christ-like. A
lofty disposition does not lower its
standard, but endeavors "to raise
those about it up to it. It is easier
to always acquiesce in the wishes
of others—to drift along with the
tide—social, moral, or commercial
—bill to be a* leader, to be yourself,
demands effort and lots of it*. One
may live a pure life as to character
ami may be reputed to be good
among his fellow man, but without
developing the disposition placed in
him, he has.not reached the mark
set for him, and life has been a
failure. It is not enough to live.
We must,as Elbert Hubbard would
say, "radiate life"—-make something of it by making it mean
something to others.
Nor by what you think others
think.yon are.
But by what you do. and how
you do it.
Help others to do likewise.
Bight all wrongs, not by   knocking the wrong-doer;
But by pointing the wrong-doer
to a better way by walking in it
yourself.
Be what you think other .people
ought to be.
Find the Light and keep looking
to it. '
Don't give a dam, nor any other
small sum, for the people's   opinions as to what is your duty.
I.)o it as you see it.
Don't be a fool by setting yourself up as a judge of another.
But put a little more time in
in better living yourself.
If you stumble or fumble   don't
stop to tell  people the   whys and
wherefores.
Get up and at it again.
There's good in  all  people and
everything.
Look foi- it.
If you want anything, ask for it.
If you can"t have it,   say  thank
you and be quiet.
Don't let other  people  do your
thinking and praying for you.
Do it yourself. .
Love all men, and all women
under 2b and not over 100.
Fear nothing and nobody.
Open your fountain of love and
let the sunshine in.
Don't bray like an ass words of
cursing that damn your soul and
mean nothing. -
Don't fill your belly with booza
that a hog would turn tail to.
Never swallow your words.
But if you must swallow them,
be sure they ave sugar-coated with
love and kindness.
Pellets like that go down easy.

Tenacity is irrational stiektoit-

Stiekum wasted is siiekuni gone.

When Gabriel Galls.
2£M£S!£
Here lies the dead 'neatli headboards stained by time,
In graves uncared for; rudest heaps of earth;
Rough men whose lives on earth were black with crime,
Devoid of every, mark of honest worth.
In wavs unnatural they met with death,
In blood stained garments they were hid from sight,
A curse clung to each victim's dying breath,
And hatred lit their eyes till dimmed of light,
With boots yet on their sinful feet they'll lie r
Till Gabriel's trumpet echoes from on high.
Here lies old Texas Joe, who met his death
From hand of one who was of quicker fire,
And Tuscarora Sam, whose fund of breath
Slipped from him when he called Black Bill a liar.
And here is Toker Frank, who tried to steal
The frayed affection of .Sport Daly's dame,
Aud this rude board stands over Brocky Teale,
Whom drink had made unsteady in his aim
When with shooters he and Grizzly Pete
Went out to hunt each other on the street.
Here lies the shot-up frame oi" Smoky Tim,
Whose stolen horse lacked necessary speed;
And close beside him sleeps old Greaser Jim,
Who was by vigilantes roped aud treed.
Just over there lies Sacramento Joe,
Who died with boots too full oi wiggling snakes,
And just beyond they planted Tommy Lowe,
Who made a fatal play to grab the stakes
From^off the table in a game of draw—
"Bit off," the boys said, "more than he could chaw."
Here's Bob the Methodist and Sleepy Ike,
And Doughface Henderson and Whiskey Mack,
And poor Joe Bowers (not the man from Tike),
Aud Faro Dick and Three-lMtigered Jack,
■And others, names unknown, lie iu this spot;
And standing in this border burial ground,
Rude and uncared for,,comes the passing thought
That when the dead wake at the trumpet sound

biggest price ever offered for the

And though Mr. Morgan gave the
money willingly and is glad to

treasures, he refuses to pay a duty
of $100,000, which would be exacted
by the custom authorities.—New

blinded to what is golden in life.
-'Can Rutilus, who scourges,
tortures, bonds and imprisons his
slaves, teach his son humanity and
respect for the brotherhood of
man?"
Juvenal asked the question eighteen centuries ago. but thus far no
one lias been able to answer "Yes."
No more can J. P. Morgan be
indifferent to the heart-cry of humanity and see the beauty iu
Raphael's immortal creation.
Why did he puri'hase it? Because it was wanted by some one
else.
But the lesson is not that furn
ishetl by a sordid nature unable to
understand a thing of beauty. Tho
people who could afford to pay
, $500,000 for a painting arc few•--
and fewer still are they who would
do so if they could. But there an
many in  whose  souls   there is a*
normal instinct necessary to protect
a woman from the more gross pa»s-
sions  of   her marital partner, thc
important—keeping a husband, for
the simple reason thai she respects
the strong instincts of her   nature,
and forties her husband to do  likewise, thus retaining and increasing
day by day his respect and his love.
Tlie entire conventional   idea of
marriage and the duties of a wife to
her husband are abnormal, and unquestionably these perverted theories have done much towards bringing about the unsatisfactory matrimonial condition now  almost  universal.    The civil ceremony "is'supposed to give to man every privilege
he may desire.    The  wife  is supposed to be subject   to   his   every
wish.    The laws of  nature  or the
laws of Gotl warrant no such  conclusion.     In fact it   is   plain   that
the wishes of the   wife   should be
paramount — that   the    husband
should be subject to and controlled
by   her.    When   this   outrage to
woman and the plain  laws   of nature, in her total subjection to man
in marital life, is fully realized,one
of the principal causes  of diseases
peculiar to her sex is plain to any
unprejudiced reasoner.

falls far below this standard no one
will dony. Tho fomalo oat, dog,
horse or Hon is but little, weaker
than the male of their own species,
and in a race can usually run about
as fast as the male. Woman should
bc as strong in comparison with
man.
Of course there are excuses and
causes for feminine weakness. With
their vital organs crushed by the
corset and with even movement
curtailed by a skirt, and with
teachers and parents continually
impressing upon thein at every step
in their education the importance
of dignity and ladylike behavior,
which means that they must daily
violate the most-important law of
nature in ignoring the necessity for
regular use of the muscular system,
can we expect thein to grow into

There is nothing that predisposes a

It should not be. It is often the
result of tlie perverted impression
that marriage means total subjection lo the wishes of another. On
the "rocks'* of this false conclusion
are shattered the happiness, health
and future prospects of millions of
married couples. Herein lies the
paramount importance of superb

THOUGHTS   ON    MA1UUAGK.
Marriage to a man is the most
important step of his life. Wrested
from the warm home nest, where
he is often boarding witli the folks
without having to pay a cent, he
quits all his companions and associations of his youth to become the
king bee of a new made home,with
a piano and a gas stove in it. Time
was when a four-hole cook stove, a
washboard and a dish pan were the
necessary ingredients to married
life.    But that was long, long ago.
Yes, the young man who gets
married should have our earnest
solicitation. Taken, as we have
heretofore alleged, from the comforts and conveniences of a settled
home, he is conveyed to a flat,
where lingers the smell of the cooking and the voices of those who
live below well up like a call of a
cat to his or her mate. Then,
again,his wife may be irritable and
peevish and in a moment of abstraction bang his head against the
cuspidorc, kick him squarely into a
heap, and then lounge on him with
all her weight.
Little do newly married women
know how to treat a newly-wed
husband. Little do they know
that all he yearns for is kind treatment and love. These he must
have. Board and clothes go along
way toward making him contented;
but love, administered in doses to
suit, will Keep him home of nights
and induce him to eat home cooking without a kick.
Think of the man—sensitive,
fragile, delicate being—installed in
new surroundings, where the free
lunch route and the nearest five-
cent beer joint is still unknown  to
him.    If vou  have   troubles take
*i> *>
thein to your husband. He will
help you to bear them. If your
business affairs are in a tangle, he
will help you to unravel them. He
will suggest the means of economizing in provisions —and take his
ffo^nti^nTMlTlown'tmvTrara"-^!^
bit restaurant.
We can suggest, many ways that
wives -can get along with their husbands and ever after lead a blissful
existence. Here is a recipe as old
as the hills, but infallible: Take
an axe to him.
"When all the parties to this business appear, as they presently will,
before the tribunal of history, the
Canadian people,if in anything they
have erred,will, at any rate,'be able
to plead ignorance in their defence.
Never by those to whom our people
had a right to look for instruction
have the main facts of the case been
brought before them. When Lord
Rosebery tells them that they4 and
the othcir people of the empire are
subjects of hatred and execration
to the whole world, they may well
think that the world is out of its
mind. Still they have hearts, to
which certain facts have found
their way. When a worthy Canadian farmer reads of homesteads
burned by the hundred, of multitudes of women and children dying
in pestilential prison camps, of men
hanged for taking part with their
kin while their kinsfolk are forced
to witness their hanging; when he
sees the press gleefully reportiug
the weekly "bags'' of men who.are
lighting for their independence,and
who at all events have done him no
wrong; he has the natural feelings
of humanity. A. reaction is setting
in; not on the political platform or
in the press, but in the hearts of
the Canadian people.'-
