'>  SoiiK months ago, two men were arrested    tit   Vancouver,   charged with  holding up a bookmaker "of that city.  Those men, McDonald and Hogan; had  some money on   them when arrested,  ' and of course it was taken in charge liy  the police.    Tlieir trial will be on iu a  few days,'and  they hud to'get money  to pay, their lawyer, so they made an  application  before Sir. Justice Martin  through tlieir lawyer, for the return of  the   money found on Ihem when arrested.     Blr. Justice Martin granted  the order, and  no doubt the money  found its way to the pocket of their  lawyer.    Supposing it should  happen  that Hogan and McDonald were found  /guilty of the crime with  whi6h they  aire charged, and  thai tlie money-paid  to the lawyer was part of what was  stolen, in what way would the victim  proceed to get his money back ?   Somewhere itis written'that the receiver of  stolen goods is not altogether guiltless  of crime.  When the demand for good houses  ���exceeds tlie supply, it ib generally tin-  -dcrstood that times aro prosperous, and  "tbat.house building for rental purposes  will soon become protTGible. This is  .about the situation in Nelson at the  "present time. There is scarcely a good  house vacant in the city, and the real  ���estate agents avc turning away applicants everyday. Tiiere has-not been  very much house-building going on for  the past year or two, but it is evident  that the carpenters will be busy in thc  near future.  that Charlie  was  convinced that the  interpreter  was holding   back something in  tlie translations, or it may  have been that he thought the  interpretations were not full enough to be  interesting  to  the   audience;  so  he  threw in a few ilowers on hia own account.   Certainly the additions did not  detract from the interest of the occasion; but itis doubtful if those who  listened to the interpretations of thein-  tcrpretor cat)  be   regarded   as having  added extensively to tlieir knowledge  of the customs of the Chinese.   Nevertheless, as wus before remarked, the explanations were interesting, and not  the   least    interesting    was  Marshal  Waterman's  happy reference   to   the  blushing bridesmaids.    It looked like  paint.  At the recent meeting in Leeds of  'the British Trades Congress, parliament as well as the party leaders came  in for a good deal of condemnation as  being out of toucli and sympathy with  the needs of tho woiking classes; but  when one John Ward representing the  navvies' union, in "the course of a  speecli on militarism and conscription,  ��� remarked that at present the* King was  about the only-statesman iu England  "-"possesses and thc only friend of peace,  thc congress cheetVd.aguin and "again.  When tho speaker had.,concluded it  gave ,��� him an enthusiastic ovation.  Hitherto these trades congvc.->&cd have  treated monarchy in a llippant, hostile  temper. This demonstration, therefore,  indicated a marked change. But it  cannot be attributed to a more generous sentiment toward monarchy as an  institution. It was a recognition of  the King's appreciated labors in behalf  of peace, of which ,the recent arbi-  -tralion treaties are but one and hatred  ef the policy of conscription that not  long ago was seriously advocated at the  war office.

Tt is understood  that Mr. Justice Irving will bo the  -presiding judge.  l\  .   ���   ���  '"Thr Ijondon'coric.-'pond'jnt ofthe  'Toronto Telegram reports that one or  two of tlie more sensational Loudon  papers aro regaling their readers with  ��� accounts of tho evil power exerted by a  mummy of au Egytaiu princess, which  occupies a corner in tho 13iitis.li Museum. Although surrounded by highly  respectable and well-behaved muinies,  it appears that this vicious relic persists iii bringing bad luck to whomever  conies in contact with it. The gentleman who originally bought the elaborately encased figure, lost his entire fortune; the photographer who photographed it, met with uu accident, broke  two cameras and was the pained spectator of hia child's fall into a cucumber  frame tlie same day; and even then  who were sent to move the mummy,  met with bruises and cuts. There isa  wealth of reading in the mummy's  adventures for those who aro inclined  to be superstitious.  . One of the most amusing,.if not interesting, features'"of lhe recent Fair  was the Chinese procession. Apart  .'"from tbe gorgeous costurnes in which  those who took part in ttie procession  were arrayed, much interest centred  ia the solemnity, with whieh lhey invested the whole proceedh.gs. But  the climax wti3 probably reached  when Charlie Waterman undertook an  explanation of "tlie various emblems  carried by the processionists and their  ��� costumes. Whatever kitowledgeChar-  iie may possess of John Chinamen,'it  cannot be said that it includes" 'an intimate acquaintance wiih the idiom  of the Celestial. Therefore ilie had to  call into requisition the services of an  An eastern writer comments on the  circumstance that the visit which the  band and pipers of the famous "Forty-  twa" are now paying to Canada is  very different from the conditions  which existed when the regiment first  crossed the Atlantic. There was* no  "entente cordiale" then, and when, in  June, 175G, the Black Watch disembarked at New York,under Lieutenant-  Colonel Francis Grant, son of the Laird  Grant, ib was their object to be in  readiness to repel any attempts on  British territory which the French  might make from Lake Champiain.  The French, however, limited their  efforts to the erection of the fort of Ti-  conderogn, on the shores of the lake.  In the autumn 600 recruits, all Highlanders���for at that period none others  were admitted���joined the 42nd, who  were 700 strong when they sailed from  Greenock. This force was part ofthe  army which unsuccessfully stormed  Ticondcroga on July 8, 1758, under  Major-Gener.il Abercromby. It was  tho stiongebt regiment in his army,  and was fully equipped and in native  dress. The officers worea narrow gold  braiding around their tunics, all other  lace being laid aside to make them less  conspicuous to the French and Canadian riflemen. The sergeants wore  silver lace.on their coats, and carried  the/Lochaber j/xe,.the head of which  was fitted for hewing, -hooking, or  spearing an enemy, or such other work  as might be found before tlie ramparts  of Ticonderoga. Many of the men had  been out iu the rising of '43. In this,  tlieir first "encounter with the French  on American .soil, the Black Watch  (Am Freiceadan Dubh) suffered  heavily���eight officers, nine sergeants,  and S97 men were killed; and 17 officers, 10 sergeants, anil 306 soldiers  wounded. Of the officers killed two  were named Campbell, which was the  name of four of the wounded officers,  other'three of whom were Grahams.  Of these was Captain Thomas Graham, of Duohray, whose ancestor John  Giaham, of Duchray, according to a  book lately published by a lady of the  Inchbrakie family, raised Jhe_Black^  Watch.  . Mi:. Aulay -Mokriso'x has ' beeu  appointed a Supreme Court Judge for  British Columbia to take tlie place of  Mr. Justice Drake, superannuated.  The Economist extends its heartiest  congratulations to Mr. Justice Morrison, and at the same time expresses  the belief that he will preserve the best  traditions of the Bench in British Columbia. This paper freely confesses  that it would "have been better pleased  had a condition of the appointment of  thc new judge been that he would reside in Kootenay. The Bar of the interior has expressed itself almost unanimously in favor of a resident judge,  and, if the Government 1ms not had  some understanding to this effect with  Mr. Justice Morrison, it has simply  ignored the wishes of the Kootenay  lawyers.  The actual results of the Nelson Fair cannot be computed in dollars and cents, although  it is satisfactory to note tbat tbe amount of  money taken in at the gate fully came up to  tbe expectations of the promoters. - It will be  some years before the public will be enabled  to fully estimate the beuefits tbat must follow  the exhibition just closed. If the Fair of last  year resulted in educating hundreds as to the  capabilities of the Kootenay as a fruit-growing  country what will be the consequence of the  second annual exhibition ? It is no exaggeration to assert that hundreds who visited the  Fair tbis year were simply amazed at tbe evidences of what had been taking place around  them during the past few years. As one gentleman put it: "Supposing I had left here  when I came off the Crow's Nest a few years  ago, and some one had met me in New Brunswick and told me that he had seen an exhibition  of fruit like this in Nelson, I would have  thought he was crazy or telling lies." This is  the situation exactly, and the marvellous thing  in connection with it all is that it only occurred  to a few tnat the Kootenay district v/ould ever  be known otherwise than the'centre of a mining  industry; yet in an in inconceivably short space  of time it has been demonstrated that here iu  the mountains can be grown "enough fruit to  supply not only home consumption, but also in  years to come  to close out all  competition in  the territorial market at our doors. And it has  been shown that the fruit grown here is not  only equal to tbe product of the east, but  better. A gentleman present, who had just  returned from the Toronto exhibition, remarked tbat the display of fruit there could in  no respect be compared to what was on exhibition at the Nelson Fair. Therefore, in  this respect, il no other, will the Nelson Fair  prove beneficial. It will be surprising if the  demand for fruit ranches does not continue  until every available acre is under fruit.- And  it must not be-thought the laud "suitable for  this is limited; there is quite enough to support  a population equal to the most populous districts in the east.  The Fair aiso served as a text-book of what  is going on around us in tbe way of mining  development. So far* mining has been' the  staple industry of the interior, and that it will  remain so, there cap  be  no   doubt.    It  often  { x.  perplexes even-the oldest residents of the  Kootenay to answer the questions that are  asked by newcomers with regard to, mining  development.. While it is not likely that anyone person will ever possess enough knowledge to answer all tbe interrogatories that will  be" put tohim-by.the average man from the east,  yet a' careful study of what he saw at the Fair  would enable hiin to deal- fairly intelligently1  with the industry, that has  made British Col-  Opera House to-night, when "Michael  Strogofl" will be present***for ithe first  time to a Nelson audience,  has been very good for the, week, but  no better than the merit of,the, pef-'A:Ai|$5  formances deserved.

But the display from the smelters was the most interesting. It was a lesson in the development of  the lead industry, which has commanded  so much atlention the past few years. Altogether the mining exhibit was a most creditable one.  It is not within the limit of this article to  particularize   the many worthy articles   exhibited at the Fair; the Daily News has presented the public with a detailed report of the  various exhibits; but suffice it to say that in  every department were evidences of excellent  taste and  progressive spirit.     It was   shown  that Nelson is making much that is needed-at  home and is on a fair way to export a little as  time advances.      A word however, must be  said    in   praise,   of   the   men    who     contributed so much towards the success of  the  Fair.    Secretary Annable has shown himself  o be a man of great capacity in his management of the enterprise.     He has worked night  arid day to bring about the desired result, and  all must admit that the. work could not have  been in better hands.    He was ably assisted by  many   patriotic   citizens,   prominent   among  whom were those mentioned last week, but   it.  would take more space than this paper has at  its disposal to give the full list.  Stuart's Comedians will be seen  at the Opera House Monday and Tuesr  day next. This company is headed by  James Post and May Ashley, both  well known entertainers from .the  coast.

"���;.%���  ENT DISSOLVED  Word has been received in Nelson that the  elections for the House of Commons are to  to take place  on the 3rd of   November next.  The contest will therefore be short and sharp.  Prognostications as to the result thereof are,  we see, being indulged in by not a few of our  contemporaries. This is harmless amusement.  No one is injured thereby. We observe that  our morning contemporary predicts tbat the  Conservative party will be utterly routed in the  contest, worse indeed than was the case in  1900.    We would indeed have anticipated that  its "prophesies would be ofsuch a character. It  is too-strong a party organ not to be ^ the father  of such a thought. Were we disposed to prophecy, we would forecasfa differenTresultAThe  Province of Ontario will certainly go against  the Government by a large majority. And so  will Manitoba and the North-West Territories.  The Government will carry Quebec very likely,  but by a much decreased majority. Our anticipation is that the western part of that Province will reverse the verdict of 1900 in many  constituencies.   Down by the Atlantic the Con  servative party appears to anticipate a much  closer result than there was in the last House.  In this Province, our expectation  is "that a  majority of the Coast constituencies will return Conservatives; while in tbe belated constituencies of the Interior, the result will be  largely affected by the issue of prior elections.  Looking over Canada as a whole, we anticipate  that neither party is going to have a large  majority, that the House to.be elected will be a  somewhat close one.

He lately enjoyed  the distinction of having his picture in  tbe patent insldes,printed atWlnni-  peg.  -i  I  Tuibt'y-nime interesting and sometimes inconsolable widows appear iu  that world of ticiion created by Charles  Dickens.   These   relicts are creatures  of infinite variety and come from all  grades of socitil life.   They are grave  and gay, severe and soft-hearted, sensible and silly, haughty and humble,  pretty and ugly, young and old,   Few  of them possess tbat sweet stupidity  with which the'author'eridows his favorite heroines ; but it may be said in  their praise that not one of them is an  outan-out termagant like Thackeray's  Mrs.  McKensiie.   For the  most part  they are more sloppy and sentimental  limn    self-willed   or   strong-minded.  These widows are evidently not drawn  con am ore.   They rather serve to emphasize that warning, "Jlevare of vid-  ders,' which the elder Weller gives to  his son Kamivei. oMost formidable of  them all is the grim, determined, busi-  ������ interpreter!'   It seemed from the first J ness-like Mrs. MacStinger, who  hav-j  ing resolved to marry hor lodger, unsophisticated Jaek-Bunsby, carrying ont  that purpose in spite of Jack's protests  and frantic endeavors to follow the advice of his bosom friend, Captain Cuttle, and "sheer off."  " David Copperfleld" leads off with  five widows, foremost among whom is  the mother of David, always called "a  baby" by Aunt Betsy Trotwood.   By a  strenge irony.of fate she chooses as her  second husband the stern, uncongenial  Mr. Murdstone.   The haughty, obdurate Mrs. Steerforth, mother of the profligate  but   gifted  James,  and   Mrs.  Markham,   who  on  account  of   her  astute     generalship    the    schoolboys  called "the old soldier," are two other  widows of the story.    But   tiiere are  two others, each of whom illustrates an  all too frequent type of feminine character.   These aire the lachrymose Mrs.  Gummidge,    and   that    "lone,   lorn  creetur," the mother of that cringing,  sneaking, "'umble" Uriah Heep."  "Little Dorritt" contains four widows, Mesdames Ebenham, Finching,  Gowan and General. The first is a  paralytic bent on mischief, the second  is kind-hearted but full of sentimental  affections, the third is a prim, curtly  old lady, and Mrs. General, the gov  erness of Mr. Dorritt's daughters, is a  "cold, waxy woman who never lighted  well."  "The Old Curiosity Shop" has three  widows, most familiar of whom is Mrs.  Geniwin, mother-in-law of the horrible  Mr. Quily, with whom she wages perpetual warfare. "Oliver Twist" introduces us to two widows, Mrs. Bedwin  and Mrs. Bumble, neither of whom Is  a striking personality. In "Great Expectations" we find an amiable Mrs.  Brondley, and an abject, toadying Mrs.  Coller, who seeks to make her way by  fulsome flatteries, smiles and tears.  "Bleak House,":"Hard;:Times".and  the "Uncommercial Traveler" ��� have  each two widows of widely varying  aspect and individually. ; .Mrs...Fielding of "The Cricket on the Hearth" is  a querulous Mrs. Gummidge, a replica  of Mrs; Wilfer, who is called "the  tragic'liiuse." The mother of Nicholas  Nickelby in the novel of that name is  a sort of Mrs. Malaprop, who. talks incessantly witliouteaying any thing and  makes sad havoc with her parts of  speech. "Dombey and Son" has three  widows of striking characteristics. Mrs.  Granger marries Dombey for bis money  and elopes with his clerk; Mrs. Skew-  ton at seventy affects the aire and dress  of a girl of sixteen, and Mrs MacStinger  has already been mentioned. "The  Mystery of Edwin Drood," the latest  and unfinished novel of Dickens, contains three widows, but space fails U3  to dwell upon their salient traits or  those of other less prominent relicts in  the Dickens gallery.  *     ~/v' ' '������   ���  The minstrel performance referred  last week will be given at the Opera  House Thursday and Friday, nights of  next week. Mr. Taylor and Miss Marrack will be assisted by the best local  talent and a pleasing entertainment is  promised."  Concerning Mr. Harold Nelson's production of ".Heart and Sword," which  will be seen here for the first time on  Saturday evening of next week, his  admirers may be interested to know  fchat'be has achieved even greater success than in "Quo Vadis." Tbe critic  of a prominent eastern journal had this  to say :      ���  ''if over an actor established his  claim to versatility, Mr. Hasold Nelson  did last night. The audience was more  or less lamiliarwith Hamlet, in which  he bas won so many admirers, and  with other elassEc portrayals.   But Mr.  Nelson has row dropped, for tbe time,  his Shakespean characters for the more  dashing and popular romantic roles.  Amidst the clatter of. hoofs, dressed in  a strikingly beautiful hunting costume,  with his game-bag thrown over bis  shoulder, and spurs clanking on bin  boots, Mr. Nelson made a telling entrance. Frem this time the actor gave  to his patrons the most pleasant surprise possible. It was evident that he  was able to amuse and delight people  along the lines of high comedy, as well  as to awe them in heavy tragedy. He  played with easy grace, and hia art revealed the transition from the lazy, indifferent prince to the diplomatic ruler  in a manner which the audience applauded vigorously. The play is unusually interesting, and is given: with  rich sce'u-ry, handsome costumes and  charming lighting effects. Mr. Clifford Lane Bruce was a handsome and  interesting Stalbacb; Miss Helen Scott  was convincing as the Princess, and  Mr. Blake a manly Oscar. Mr. Till  scored a success as the pompous Town  Crier, with an unquenchable thirst.  Mr. Garrette, as Prime Minister, played  with dignity and finish."  Joe Wilson bas sold hk 49-acre fruit  ranch at Creston, and while the sum-  is not given, it is large enough to afford  its late owner a prolonged season of  rest.  Gus. Evans, editor of the Grand  Forks Sun- was a visitor to the Nelson  Fair, and spent much time in gazing at  the big pumpkins and other products  of this great agricultural district.  '.*" -7*  Joseph Martin says he will ran in  Nanaimo district as a straight Liberal  and John Houston says he would supr  port Joseph if he had a vote in Nanaimo. It would be strange indeed if  Mr. Houston would not vote for a  good Liberal like Mr. Martin.  The Jessie Shirley  company will  conclude the week's engagement at the  Jack Hennessy, an old-timer and one  of the discoverers of tbe Nob�� ��� Five, is  spending a few days in Nelson.' Last  week be visited the Slocan, and on the  evening of the 28th of September, he  in company with Henry Cody, observed the 18th anniversary of the disco very of the Noble Fi ve.  The following lacrosse team will represent Nelson in the games at New  Westminster next week : Paul Grey-  erbeibl, W. Hatcher, James MoCorvie,  W. Deacon, Jeff O'Brien, Joseph  Thompson, W. McNab, W. Miller,  Dan McNicbol, Alex. "Cowan and A.  Perrier. James Hawkins Will act as-  field-captain and George McLaughlan  goes with tbe team as manager. Considerable interest is being taken atibe  coast in the visit of the Nelson team.  The boys are in good shape and hope  to make it interesting for the West-'  minster team. They leave for the  coast this evening. THE NELSON ECONOMIST

Where Does the Conservative
Party Stand on the Grand Trunk
This question i» being cnnv.isM'il at
present:   Does the"Conservative party
believe in a Government oivneil  railway or a railway owned Government ?
"Tlie latter is the condition of the present Government.   How is it  with tlie
Conservative party ?   Our contemporary, the Nelson News, solved lhe question to its own   satisfaction, anil announced that solution in an  editoiinl
•which appeared in iUs issue of tho 2711.
September, which began as follows :
*      .   *' Whilst from published  reports of Mr. Borden's speeches
during his Ontario tour it is
difficult to arrive at any defin-
'   '-    ite conclusion as to what the
-Conservative leader's railway
policy is   there appears to l.e
no doubt that the Government
ownership idea does not enter
into it,  notwithstanding   the
claims made by some of the ir-
"-   responsible    organs    of    thc
party."    '
Tbe proper person to announce authoritatively the policy of that party in
reference to this "or any other (juc-iion
is Mr. It. Ij. Borden, its leader.   lie is
Cow holding meetings throughout Ontario for the purpose of  meeting the
electorate-and. ex pound ing bid views
<m public qdfotions.- On the evening of
.fl4th,September ^ult.,, be', held, one of
those meetings in the city or "Guelph i
aud at this meeting he Is thus reported
as having with authority stated, as he
had frequently befqre, announced," tbe.
views of hia party on this question :
' " If we "provide nine-tenths
of the* cash and credit necessary for "the railway," said Mr.
-.* Borden,  '-'let us provide the
"'otherstenth  as well.*" Let us
have from thc Atlantic to the
Pacific a national transcontiii-
A erital   railway,   m    the   true
. sense of tbe word, owned and
.   controlled   by  the   people  of
Canada.   Tbat is a plain, huoi-
ness-like proposition.   It was
'.that he stood  by in   PuiIU-
-   ment and it was that-we stand •
o - by today.   Thc railway ijiies-'
'—~tionrnow befi»rc_Canndti_is*tbe-
greatest  issue that  bas been
' presented to Canada in the last
quarter of a century."
Is tbis statement,of policy explicit
enough to convince tbe editor ofthe
JSewa ot his error! Possibly not, but'
it will reveal to the.public the attitude
of the'Conservative party on Miis mobt
important issue.

that Canada is not ready' for. docs not

In Montreal, in Toronto, at. tbe.Cana-
dian Club in Ottawa, iudced wherever
be went, were there demonstrations in
bis honor, and abundant evidence of
the sympathy of.the people with closer
trade relations....throughout the Empire.
. And while "be was speaking in Toronto of the outlook for preferential
trade, Mr. George Drummond, -president of the Canadian Manufacturers'
Association, was addressing the following words to that body on the occasion
of its annual meeting in Montieal:

best, safedt und surest way to
effect a permanent consolidation of Imperial'• interests is
tlirough the medium of a mutual arrangement by which
ench bection of lho Empire will
' grant to the products of the
other a preference as against
the products of foreiiru labor.
It seems to be nothing" should
now stand in the way of the
Biitish and colonial Governments drawing togcthei and
appointing fully qualified -representatives to investigate this
great <ii)estion thoroughly, and
to endeavor to evolve a policy
of preferential trade that**will
bind the United Kingdom and
her coionii's together in a permanent alliance. Theic is no
reason to fear bub that such a
conference would bring abo   t
—air "effective*;—well-cons*.iered-
lmiUudarrangement by which,
while tocal interests in the
United Kingdom and in the
colonics can be fully and eijui-
tubly safeguarded and kept
prosperous, yet at the same
time a very large trade that
now goes' to foreign and commercially antagonistic capital

The Election Trial Court is thus exposing the corrupt practises resorted to
by thc supporters of the ltoss Government to carry out the elections und
has wiped out tbe inujjirity of that
Government. The natural result of
such revelations should be to cause ull
who favor election puiily to. shun political association .with those who habitually resort to illegal electoral methods, who, to use the famous words of
Preston, "hug the machine."
We.were Jrcee&tly reading, in the

Among those named are the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Primate of
the Anglican Church; the Archbishop
of York, the lesser Primate; Mr. A. J.

She says:  *3Ie who to-day looks ..at some gieat  slGothic cathedral in its'final form seejna  ���to 'V'Xte '-looking*" at  ''"-"that "   which  a--,might    have    been    the    di cam     o_  *;* some .^single:������ soul    of    genius,,  who,  r7 waking ��in*'^thg   morning,    found   'the  \dream? a!_Te^ifty,'    But   in   truth'Its  '"���!'orl��^lwa3',far^ otherwise/: Ages elapsed'  \_jtram the'tlme 'the first-rough stone was  ..laid "as a foundation till the last spire  /and pinnacle    were    shaped,  and    the  * ,hand which laid 'the, foundation-stone  > >was never the same as that'whlch set  the last stone upon the coping. Generations succeeded one  another,  laboring  ���' _at gargoyle,  rose-window   and   shaft,  -/and died, leaving the work to othevs;  . _*the -first,master-builder who drew, up  V; the.' first'rough outline - passed   away  aj>'and'wasi succeeded by others, and the  .^".���details of the wofk as completed bore  ".but faint resemblance to the work.as he  , devised It; no man fully undgj'stood"aU  -^that--othei*s-had-done -or-were-doing,-  but each labored In his place,'and the  ���*, work as completed had  unity;   lt  ex-  - pressed not the desire and necessity ot  oh'e-mind, but'crf'tfle unknown human  .spirit.  .And notVl^s essential  to tha  x existence.of tlie building was the labor  of the humble workman who passed hia  ~ life in carving gargoyles and shaping a  few rose-wlndow3,   than  that   of   the'  -loftiest master-builder  who, drew Lthe  / general ^'outlines.   'And it was heroic;  ���tor the master-builder who, though lt  '" were but vaguely, had some Image of  , .What the whole work would be when  ���_the last stone was laid upon  the cop-  , lag and the last spire raised.  It was  easy to labor with devotion and zeal���  though  well he might know that  tho  placing, of ,that last stone'and the raising of that last spire would not be his,  and that the building ln Its full beauty  ' and strength he should never sec.   But  ifor the journeyman laborer who carried  on his  stones,  and  month   by  month  toiled,  carving at his own  little gargoyle or shaping the   *r*.-erics   In  his  little oriel window, without any vision  <ot what tlie whole would be when completed. It. was not so ea.sy;  nevertheless, it was through the conscientious  labors   of   such   alone,   through   their  ' beaps uof -chipped; acd spoiled stones,  their bait failures and  almost  blind  successes, that at the  last    the    pile  could be reared  in  its  strength    and  beauty."  r  Mining Notes.

It is said that It ls coming to be tht  fashion again to use the word "lady,"'  and that the ^wprd "party" is also jn  better favor. For'some years modish  persons have" called ladles "women/',  end parties- "functions." ' There wai  ^��ome excuse for the former substitution  because "lady" was worked to death,  ���and so misused as to make It ridiculous. But vague as its meaning Is, it  has a meaning (or meanings), to the  conveyance of which it is Indispensable.  and the folks who have dismissed it  from their vocabularies have not been  persons of much philological discernment.  The .us* of "function" for "party" has  been a mere fad that must have started  aa a pleasantry and gradually becam#  ft habit. It makes it possible to speai  of a row at a ball as a "functional disorder"; but even that doesn't war-ani  its .vogue., It-is^a-poar, borrowed; anglicised word,- which the -.British-Am-  ��rto*a iauf uaa.e doesn't n��cd.
