EDITORIAL COMMENT.  E have heard many times in the last lew  years of immense improvement in 'the  administration   of the   Dominion   Postoffice  Department, especially that it has been and  is being   economically  administered and   is  meeting its own expenses.    This is extremely  pleasant to hear; all were pleased  at tbe reduction of the letter rate and still more  when  the government assured us that the reduction  did not decrease the revenue from that source.  But recent developments fail   to  confirm  the  assurance.    A few weeks ago  a   new  regulation appeared in which   an increase was announced in the  postage on newspapers   and  books.    The re-opening of schools has demonstrated   to book-buying    parents    that   the  change means an advance of about fifteen per  cent, in the price of each text-book     A nd the  readers have found that to disseminate information by sending  papers by  mail is  now  twice as costly a  luxury as before.    We are  quite well aware that revenue must be raised,  V\*t public services cannot be performed for  nothing, but it is rather irritating to be constantly reminded  by   the  government prees  that our po*tal service i* almost ideal and at  the same time to find the cost of such  luxuries   as   books appreciably   increased.   The  The worst feature of it is that  the class  who  will have to pay  this new  tax  is  the  best  class in the country, those who are striving  after knowledge.  Possibly this explains itself, from one point  of view this is an extremely dangerous class,  too much knowledge and intelligence is not  good for people nor for their rulers.  There is one part of Canada where this tax  will hardly he felt. Apart from the English  people in the Eastern Townships, the Province of Quebec will he practically exempt.  Books and newspapers are luxuries that the  French-Canadian habitant can easily do  without. And ihe result af his self-denial sn  this reapeot is hie unfaltering devotion to hie  political leaders.  Possibly the government wishes  to  extend  this virtuous attitude by reducing all Canada  to the level of learning and intelligence that  prevails in the pet province, the banner Liberal province that furnishes half of the government supporters in the House of Commons.  A 4  ,1     ,     *  'Hot**���, ���  The coming visit to British Columbia of R.  L. Bn-den, Conservative leader in theDC>m-  mons, will revive some interest in Dominion  issues. The issue with which the passing  generation of Canadians were most familiar  was that of the National Policy of development by proection a^ain^t the Liber ai policies of Free Trade, Commercial Union, Unrestricted Reciprocity, Tariff for Revenue and  Free Trade again. (This is chronological order.)  The great Disraeli, in describing S:r Robert  Peel's volte-face on the Corn Laws, said : "He  has caught the Liberals bathing and has  stolen their clothes.'4  We cannot conscientiously compare Sir  Wilfrid Laurier with Sir Robert Peel in any,  other respect, but when the race vanity of the  French-Canadians had placed him in office  he promptly appropriated the trade policy he  had condemned for eighteen years.  , However, political thefts weigh lightly on  the national conscience, and there was some  virtue in this one, like the burglar's theft of a  prayer-book. The tariff issue in Canada, except in matters of detail is buried forever, and  we are now practically assured of sanity in  the commercial policy.  Since 896 there have been few matters of  serious, importarce upoa which political principles hinge. Sir Wilfrid's policy of u masterly  inactivity " has enabled his English speaking  supporters to vote consistently for his routine  measures. The enthusiasm of English Canada  compelled his government to offer contingents  for South Africa and the splendor of their  achievement helped us to forget the fact that  Canada was the last colony to offer aid while  Quebec was mollified by the fact that ail expenses connected therewith were borne by the  Imperial government.  The Colonial conference is over and we are  promised a report of its deliberations, but  some cable dispatches have arrived in advance, in one of which we were informed that  Sir Wilfrid's firmness saved Canada from  being drawn into the vortex of imperial armament for defence. It is perhaps dangerous to  take an abbreviated cable dispatch as an authority, but if our graceful Premier be correctly reported, we fancy that British Cana*  dians will have something serious to say on  this subjeci. There are, we trust, many Canadians whose manhood is not reflected by va-  porings over this "galaxy of free nations'9  followed by a " firm refusal " to share, the  cost of freedom. If we are proud of our position as a free member of a great empire, are  we not ashamed to say to Britain.: *^When  there is any fighting to be done we'll cheer for  yon; we'll even allow a few of our sons ^o  volunteer to fight, hut you must pa^-theoT,* f  No one wishes to divide Canada on -mee.:.v.  - '     J ,'-7'   <  lines, but it  is greatly  to  be feared that the  next great issue we shall have to facejwill *b�� yy  the acceptance or refusal  of our imp8riai��-r-e-^  sponsibiliiies. .^^  Tme Daily News is advertising for ^^ol^py  for the Conservative party.

In the places  already visi^d  ih��- journalists have been wined  and   dined,  but very little has been done in  the  way of  supplying the editors with thoroughly reliable;  information as to the resources of the country.  It is to be hoped that the pressmm will fee  treated with true western hospitality  during  their sojourn in the Kootenay, but at the same  time the fact must not  be   overlooked that  these gentlemen are not coming here to make,  a test off our hospitality, bu& rather to gain in-  formation as to the resources of the country  which  may    bo    intelligently , disseminkftte^ci,  through the medium of their respective journals.   It will  be   scarcely necessary to   toll  them that here in British Colunibia  there is  fastened on  the people the   most incapable  government to be fouhd in the civilized world  ���this fact is already as well known in Great  'liritai^  What the journalists  will want^^ fo^ i��  what the capabilities of the cbunt^ W"  under ordinary������ conditio should  be given every opportunity to secure this in*  formation.

Now, it is stated that he is living  on the fat of the land in London, England,  and that is why I maintain a good man is  certain to get to the top sootier or later.  ^HERE is no use talking, you "can't keep a  good man down���that is, for any great  length of  time.    Enterprise is  fure  to   win  out occasionally.    Take  the  career of Gusta-  vius Hamilton Griffin; for  instance     Known  from one end of the*world to the other as   an  energetic, enterprising, polished gentleman, he  haf triumphed   over assize courts and   jail?,  and is to-day in London, England, represent-  ;      ing two commercial journals of Montreal, and  claiming to be an   emissary   of the   Canadian  Government.    I know several influential Con-  ^ seryatives who will   admit  that Dr. Griffin is  "eminently qualified to   represent   the Liberal  Government in almost any capacity ; but just  the same, the London authorities are   making  anxious inquiries with regard" to  the doctor's  record.    Dr. Griffin's birthplace, like   that of  Homer and one or two others  who might be  mentioned, is enshrouded in mystery. He first  came into prominence and'fame on   the coast  when   he  succeeded   in   interesting   several  Los Angeles business men in a scheme to turn  ordinary ginger ale into a high-class brand of  champagne.    He claimed his process was cer-   |  tain to   make   millionaires  of   the  men   who  j  were fortunate enough to get in on the ground  floor, and strange to  _say,  half-a-dozen   or  so  prominent business  men   took   the   bait.    To  prove that he was all. right,  and   willing " to  make good," as the   saying  goes,   the   doctor  filled some ginger   ale   bottles   with   genuine  champagne, so  that  the   intending   investors  could have a test made and satisfy themselves  that thep rocess was all  right.    Of  course the  alleged "caibonized " article assayed high in  champagne and the''.promoter's of the new process put up their money.    Then  Dr. G. Ham  ilton Griffin disappeared, and the enterprising  promoters discovered   they   had   been  duped.  Shortly after  Dr. Griffin   turned, up   in " Victoria.    He reached there in the   latter part of  the eighties and started a  weekly publication  called    the   Social   World.     Incidentally   he  tried to interest  the  late   Robert   Dunsmuir  in a coal mining scheme, but failed.    His failure to  hoodwink   Mr.'Dunsmuir  embittered  him somewhat and   he wrote that  gentleman  several threatening letters, in Greek and Spanish, and signed   with a   black hand.    One of  these letters  contained   a  threat   against the  life of Mr. Dunsmuir, and this was nvide   the  ground  of a criminal action.    After  a sensational trial lasting clays, Griffin was sentenced  by the late Sir Matthew Baillie Begbie to   five  years in the penitentiary, on  Nov.   29,   188^.  A year or so afterward   Mr.   Dunsmuir  died,'  but it is said that almost his last   words   were  about   "that  black   man/'   meaning   Griffin.  The latter served bis sentence, less   the   usual  time  off for   good   behaviour, and   the   next  heard of him was that he was   eanvasainp   for  ft newspaper in  Montreal, after which he was  John  Houston's   new  paper,   the   Tribune*  made its appearance  last   Saturday, and   was  eagerly read by many who believed   the editor  was out  for gore.    They   were   disappointed.  The   Tribune was   perfectly  docile, and   very  considerate of the feelings of  imaginary   and  real enemies.    The-subjects dealt   with were  discussed in a   fair,   straightforward.manner,  and   nothing  was   said    to   which   exception  might be taken.    Moreover, like every   paper  with which Mr. Houston   has ever   been connected, it is a model of the printer's art.    For  the present, the Tribune   will  be   issued   as a  weekly, hut the editor, who  has  amassed   the  fabulous sum of three thousand dollars  since  the suspension of the Daily Tribune, promises  us another daily paper before long, which will  be a good thing for   the town, and   certain to  greatly   augment   Mr.    Houston's   min��    of  wealth���also   a   good    thing   for   the   town.  May the Tribune live long and prosper. :  Someone has suggested that Canadian uni-  vereities should be represented   in  Parliament  after the manner  of Oxford   and   Cambridge.  Tho Toronto Globe accepts the suggestion as a  good  one,   and   thinks   that   the   experiment  might be made in one of the Provincial Legislatures.    This    provokes    Toronto   Saturday  JSight   to  ask, what   good   could   be    accomplished in attempting   to graft one  more   anachronism of the English constitution on   our  Canadian... democracy and -at  the  same   time  dragging our.'educational system deeper in the  mire of politics ?    The  idea ..is   preposterous  and cannot be regarded for an instant as a serious proposition.    The Globe  must  have editorial space  to burn   or   it   could    find   more  live and pressing  political   problems   to   deal  with.  in this way was a good one.    After the supper  was over a couple of hours were spent discuss-  inc. the whole  situation.    It was finally decided that the secretary should  communicate  with the various clubs  in   the Province and  also with Medicine   Hat, and  if possible arrange a match for an early date.    The advisability of bringing the Shamrocks  to Neiion  in the event of that  team visiting New Westminster this autumn was also considered, and  it was decided to make the effort.  A London paper referring to  the fact that  Lord Salisbury   has  often been   accused   of  cynicism, says   the  charge  i*  based on  his  man>   cutting  expressions.    In regard to a  bill in  Parliament   to  establish parish councils, he said .:���'���?< jf your desire  is  to interest  the people I should rather recommend a par-'  i-h circus."��� .������ Yon cannot send your ironclads  up Mount Arrarat/' was  his  objection to intervention at the time of the Armenian atrocities.    O e time he was talking with Sir Hiram Maxim, the inventor of the  famous  gun  which beartrhir name,   when  the Prince   of  Wales, now King Edward, approached  them  and asked what they  were laughing  at.    u I  was telling Sir Hiram that he had   prevented  more men   from   dying of  old age than any  other man that ever  lived,"  said Lord Salisbury grimly.  There is some fear that the  interest in   lacrosse may die.    The Nelson team find   it  almost impossible to get a team   to   play   with,  The Nelson men are anxious to meet any team  (Medicine  Hat preferred),   but  the distances  between   towns in   British Columbia   are  so  great that scarcely any of the clubs can afford  the time and expense incident.to a trip  away  from home.    This is   the   difficulty   that   has  been   staring   the Nelson  enthusiasts   in   the  face  for   some time, and   it was   to   try and  overcome this   obstacle in some way that   \V.  A. Macdonald, K. C,  last Friday evening, invited the  lacrosse   team and  a   few   of   their  friends to o supper at the Hume   Hotel.    Mr.  Macdonald   is   a   lacrosse enthusiast, and   he  thinks like   many others   that   it   will   be   a  great pity if after   the   splendid   showing the,  local men made against the Vancouver   team  they   will not   have   a   chance   for   another  match.    The idea of calling the men together  W    \V\  Slater,   managing   director  of the  Scottish Colonial  fio|d  F^UU,  8aye there k  plenty nf capital in the old  country  seeking  investment, but   that   political   conditions in  British Columbia  have   prejudiced  the English investor against  British Columbia invest-  ments.    Mr.   Slater  is a    capitalist and   be  knows what he is talking about.    There is no  doubt the prc-ent unstable Government i�� the  ��>����!>'   thing that   stands   in   the  way  of   the  country's prosperity.  But the question is, how  long will   the   sane-minded    portion   of   out-  population be forced to submit to the intolerable nuisance.    Of one thing all can feel reasonably assured���there will bo no change in  existing conditions while   tbe "grafter " Govern ment is in power.  An attempt is being made bv   the   French  Academy of Medicine to check 'the consumption   of   absinthe,   anisette,    vermouth   and  Umrtreuso, as well as gin and  all classes of  bitters."    The Academy contends that  the  various hitters which  are tbe basis   of   cbck-  tails and so-called "temperance drinks" seriously menace the health, and   that  the ' es-  Henual   principle of absinthe  and   vermouth,  one of which in u^ed   in   almost every  "pick-  me-up," is   a   poisonous   stomachic  irritant.  it is further charged that anisette, which   has  hitherto been regarded as a mild cordial, contains an essence which  by inhalation goes  to  the   head,   and   that   Chartreuse,   which  hm  gained much fame on account of being manufactured by a religious brotherhood, is poison-  ���^^^'v^^Wt^^  li.fl^MWK.I'WSWtl *��l#��!l IfWRtWStMIWMWfM AS^SSu.  k^irV^k     AT^r^a  *Kg3-^^��*.  ^���s-  aaswadmaj^^-^^ r^^k^^-aa��^z&.a^T5M^kf^7rA^^^t7^-H|.^.^^,|ara^..^..-  a  t_^      _r* ^._a.      ,-ft   _    __  s-a^��r��>^_^<o_j^_3^  1 "ST   ^_ zk ^"L -.^-f. ... ...^  -    J    --*-*'  '-a^i^^^i-iS>k^.riruWi.,.MHtLlf^_^.^rffa__  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  o  I and contains thirteen ingredients that are  ngerqus to health.

Of the  one   thousand   who  ������visited Victoria on that day  it is  safe   to say  that each   one spent  $5,  which   would   mean  f*3,000   distributed   amongst    the   merchants  and hotel-keepers   in   one  day.    This   is   no  small consideration, and the   Kov>tenay Tourist   Association   should   keep    the   fact   constantly in mind.  "',','^' -A'-  The by-law to extend certain privileges lo  the Nelson Tramway Company was defeated.  Three-fifth* of the vote cast were necessary to  to carry the by-ltw, so that it did not  lequire much of an organized effort to defeat  ii. The tramway people did not-appear to  take enought interest in the success of the by-  l.iw to make a fight, and its oppmeots were  enabled to defeat it A little, active campaign work would have carried it. As it  was, it had a majority and only required a few  votes to have the necessary three-fifths. The  naxt move of the com pa ay is looked forward  to with interest  WW  , A  Z A'   J  /ZT'""^  When Andrew Carnegie was distributing  his libraries broadcast throughout thy land,  the public-spirited citizens of Victoria conceived the idea that it would be a good thing  to make an application for one of Mr. Carnegie's free libraries. This they did, aud their  prayer was granted. But there is a string attached to the library gifts���a building site  must be provided by tho city receiving the library. Vancouver immediately complied  with tbe conditions under which the libraries  were bestowed upon the various towns and  cities in the country, and will soon be ready  to receive its donation of books. As yet Victoria has not procure 1 its site for the library.  In fact a correspondent  writes   the   Colonist,  suggestin \   that some  public-spirited"; citizen  should   donate  a   site.    As  yet   no  public-  spirited citizen   has taken   the  hint,  and   it  will not be surprising if Mr. Carnegie   is also  called upon to supply   a   library site.    Victorians are developing a reputation for   selfishness that is not pleasant to think ab>ut.    The  other dav the Trades and  Labor  Council   of  the capital passed a   resolution requesting the  Provincial Government to withdraw the contract for the heating of the   new   Government  House from   a Vancouver   firm,   to* which   it  was awarded, and grant it to a Victoria firm.  The Government House is a Provincial building constructed with the money of the   whale  Province,   and why   a  Victoria   man   should  have preference over a contractor   residing in  any other part of the Province  is difficult  to  understand.    The contract   was   awarded   to  the Vancouver firm because  it was the lowest  tender put in by any responsible house which  tendered, and the Government could not very  well have given it   elsewhere.    Little  things  like the foregoing have a   tendency  to create  an unfavorable impression of Victorians generally.  The following is the programme of dates of  the Conservative leaders visiting British Columbia: Arrive at Vancouver Sunday, September 7th, proceeding to Victoria direct.  September 8, ma*s meeting at Victoria. September 9, mass meeting at Vancouver. September 10, mass meeting at New Westminster.  September 12 and; 13, Convention at R9vel-  soke. September 14, proceed to Nelson,  September 15, mass meeting at Nelson. September 16, mass meeting at Rossland. September .1.7, proceed to Bmff and Northwest.  Nelson Conservatives will meet at the  B>ard of Trade Rooms next Tuesday evening  and elect officers for the ensuing year. Delegates to attend the Liberal-Conservative convent ion at Revelstoke will also be selected  and'arrangements made for the reception of  Mr. Borden and the other leaders.  According to Eistern dispatcher and comment there is trouble brewing in the Liberal  Cabinet between Mr. Tarte and tho. French  ministers on one hand and Mr. Fielding with  the English on the other. Naturally both  parties are partly right and partly wrong.  Mr. Fielding clamors   for tariff   reduction on  is  the ground that the party ia pledged to it and  is stultified by its apparent acquiescence in  protection, while Mr. Tarte points to the fact  th-it the country is prospering under protection and says in effect : "What have pledges  to do with politics ?" Of course this is not  the real ground of disagreement. The English members, though in a minority, furnish  tho learning and the brains of the party, they  do not mind   the nominal  headship  of  Sir  Wilfred Laurier but the actual mastery of  ferael Tajrte is little to their taste or purpose.  But Israel as head of the French can control  the party caucus, and Mr. Fielding and his  faction have never yet shown any symptoms  of preferring principles to place. It is a  fairly safe prediction that whatever private  bickerings there may be the vote will remain  solid.  Mr. Ed. F. Clarke, who accompanies Mr.  Borden on his trip.weal, may justly be regarded as the father of trades unionism in  Canada. On account of his participation in  the printers' strike in 1872 in Toronto he was  persecuted by the late Hon. Geo. Brown.  This persecution, as such antagonism invariably does, strengthened the printers' union,  and conferred upon trades unionists the powers they enjoy to-day. No doubt Mr. Clarke  ���will receive a hearty reception on his trip  through the west.  Premier Laurier is in Paris ; Mr. Borden is  travelling through Canada investigating the  conditions prevailing in his own country.    ;7  All over the country protests are being a  entered against the habit jf passing around the ,  hat. This system of collecting money has become a nuisance to business men and others.  Scarcely a day passes that a subscription list  in not circulated for some purpose or other.  Sometime-* it is a charitable object, but too  off en it is for something in which the average  business man has not the slightest interest.  One merchant told me the other day that his  firm had been victimized in various sums aggregating nearly one thousand dollars for various schemes and from which his firm could  not derive any benefit. No one objects to subscribing as much as they can reasonably afford for a charitable purpose, but it is little  better than blackmail to force a nlan into  subscribing for something in which he cannot  have any financial interest. Business is business, and'the'nrin who gives away the money  that should go ...to his creditors is morally  guilty'-of fraud. The person who takes the  money is equally guilty.  Fred. Starkey has returned from Winnipeg.  While there he discussed the Nelson mayoralty problem with Hugh Cameron, who urged  the return of Mr. Dover unopposed. Mr.  Cameron is evidently of the belief that Mr.  Dover cam ot be beaten. Mr. Starkey is now  in the hands of his friends for alderman. If  nominated he will make a vigorous campaign  in the interests of the moral reformers.  Sun Neelands is back from the South African war. While there he succeeded in<inducing the Boers to surrender, explaining: .'to  them the futility of keeping up the fight any  longer. He shot more Boers in one' day than  his brother Jimmy can catch fish in a-year.-  1, i  i   i  TT'^W^w^w  n^w^l^^vajftipwwtt^.  ***** i kj��? *iWf>"  {   ,i %&&*&���&& ,^��^'��W^2^**-JK^ ^CJ&S^J+jyrrvrA*^ -��&,,  *PbrMWMftfWwjMa  ^..Z^ZlSS^SSL  ^fe_H__^j&��&��^ c^t-- i: _JiL    -ii.^**    *L      -a^Cf-^&r^4!i^~^?Salu  ",-",iitniTHi<Mjrniirihiiiiirii:_fLj])m7.u:juj_:  ^'g*^^^^  _i(ffliStoiifcia��.  ��ii*oS_5_S-^OTU:  ��*  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  RS. True nodded her head in a little energetic way of her own as she said,  "Really, I should think Ernest would get real  tired and discouraged with me, and wish he  hadn't married."  "Why should he be more tired than you?0  asked Mrs. Power. They were seated on the  latter's piazsa.  "Oh, it's quite different. You see, he is so  calm and easy-going, and loves peace, while  I'm all excitable, and over-anxious that everything should be done right up to the notch.'9  "He said when you were first engaged that  his nature needed just the ^element of push  that yours supplied. That was one reason  why he fell in love with you."  "Oh, yes, but don't you see? I ought to be  more self-contained in accomplishing my purpose and not fly around so."  "Your flying around amused him."  "I tell you, Belie, it's one thigg to see it  occasionally in my father's home, and quite  another thing to live with it. Ernest comes  home tired for me ib rfet him. Then the fire's  poor and the potatoes are not baked, while  everything else is ready and standing around  spoiling. He hears me scold cook for her  carelessness about fires, or if she's cross and I  don't dare say much to her, I tell him how  sorry I am that he has to waft, and scold  about cook."  "That's only because you are so anxioas  everything shall   be right for your husband."  "I know; but I ought to stop to think that  he would rather wait quietly than hear uncomfortable things that don't hurry the fire  on one bit."  "You don't know; perhaps if you didn't  say you were sorry he'd think you too easygoing and not like that."   "Oh, I do not  want you to think that Em-  *"i*M>ytt,  X  ::.y^  est says a word. The only way I know he  doesn't like it is that he gets so quiet, and  it's almost impossible to interest him in other  things when I get through talking about my  troubles."  "I'd rather he'd say something than act  that way."  "Sometimes I wish he xvould; but that's not  his way, and I guess his way is about right. I  talk things right out too much, but he just  broods over them. I know sometimes begets  tired out with me and wishes he was at home  with bis sweet, quiet mother, who never worries about meeting time nor tide."  Then Mrs. True embroidered real fast, to  keep the tears back, but her friend saw the  lines of her mouth tighten, and heard her  swallow hard. She wanted to comfort her so  she said: "Nonsense, dear! He doesn't think  bo at all. Don't you know how he always said  that your bright chatter supplied a demand  that his mother's nature so like his own could  never fill?"  "I know, but then I was just a carefree girl  gonig  about accumulating chatter, and now I  y si  *4  home more* to look after things, and I  so muuh to  get tired of house talk. There its time to  go, for I wouldn't be away when he gets back  for a good deal."  When Mrs. Power reported the conversation  to Mr. Power, she said : " Ernest True ought  to know enough to tell his wife a lot of nice  things that he thinks but keeps to himself.  Poor little, conscientious thing ! She needs  it She sees only her faults and is getting  morbid."  "Nell," said Will, "why didn't you tell  her to try your plan of sitting down and reading all her husband's old letters aloud to him  aid saying: "There! Do you think that  now ?    Why don't you say so, then ' "  * Irene couldn't do that. In the first place,  she's too proud ; in the second place, she's  too unselfish, and in the third place, she isn't  conceited enough. Everything that Ernest  saya must be spontaneous to please her. She  always said nice thing?, and now she thinks  she's helping him secure his sight. Then, too,  she'd be afraid of hurting his feelings."  "And you want me to set their little world  straight by saying something like this, when  we're smoking and talking over the' virtues^of"  our wives : * Isn't it queer, old man, how we  have to keep on telling our wives their good  points or they fear we don't admire  them any more.'"  " O Will! You're a real j;ood fellow. Ernest would think that over and profit by if, I  know, aud you'd be doing real missionary  work. Let's go over there awhile this evening."  SHORT STORIES  Dean Swift proposed to tax female loveliness and to have each lady rate her own  charms, saying" the tax would be cheerfully  paid and prove very productive."  A good story is told of twin brothers, one of  whom was a clergyman and the other a doctor. A shoit sighted woman congratulated  the latter on his admirable sermon. "Excuse  me madam," was his reply, "over there is my  brother, who preaches ; I only practice,"  A friend tells me, says!' M. A. P.," that he  met Mr. Balfour one evening at a dinner  party, when the conversation turned on the  importance in life of self-confidence. My  friend repeated the saying, " God gie ut a good  conceit o' oorsels." Mr. Balfour heard it, and.  bending across, added : ������ And that, sir, is  the only prayer the gods always answer !"  John W. Mackay was   fond   of relating the  following story :  Shortly   after St.  Patrick's   cathedral was  completed a faithful devote�� on his way|0  mass met a lukewarm Orangeman and tie?/  ��u&ded him to enter the Mthedjral  to admire  its beauties and listen to the wonderful mnm  In   the crowded   attendance   they obtain  seats two or three rows apart.   The vitito  was so overwhelmed with the splendor of th  interior that h�� turned and in qu|te an and.  ible tone said :  " Say, Mickey, that bates the divil."  " Yes," replied  Mickey, M that's the imin-  tion."  Lincoln wan once arguing a ease against an  opponent who tried to convince tbe jury na|  precedent is superior to law, and that custom  makes things legal in all cases. Lincoln's re-  ply, given in Miss Ida T&rheli'a li  great war President, w&�� one of _  effective analogies in the form of a story.  Lincoln told the jury that he would argue the  case in the same way as his opponent, and began, "Old Squire Bagly from Menard,cameimo  my office one day and said: 'Lincoln, I want  your ad vice as a lawyer. Has a man what's  been elected justice of the peace a right to issue a marriage licence?9 I told him not-  whereupon the old squire threw himself back  itv his chair very'inclignmntiy and said ^Lincoln I thought you was a lawyer. Now Bob  Thomas and me had a bet on this thing, and  we agreed to let you decide; but if this is your  opinion I don't want it, for I know a thunder-  in' eight better. I've been a squire eight  years, and have done it ail the time/ "  Grant Allen, the critic and novelist, had to  live by hi* pen because scientific work would  not support him; but science was the field id  which he should have wrought. Audrewr  Lung said of him that ho was the moat versatile man of our age, and that, if he bad bean  able to devote himself en ii rely to physical  science, the world would have been the gainer*  He was always poor, and as he once said  about hi* own letters: "I am so often ill that  moments fit for writing are 800 pracious to ba  used for anything but bread-winning." Once,  in conversation with some friends, he gave a  jocular turn to this thrifty philosophy. He  was in company with three philologists, Canon Isaac Taylor, Profefesor Rhys and Dr.  Richard Morris,-when the talk fell on the  number of words used by country working-  folk in there common pursuits. Prof. Max  Muller was cited as authority for the statement that the vocabulary of  agricultural laborers consists of  than       three      hundred  challenged    the    statement,   and    began, in  measured, sonorous   tones, ��� recounting &U th  things and the parte of things   with  which*  peasant has   to deal   with   every day.
